Regular readers of this blog may know that I’m a big fan of “le No Makeup Look.” That doesn’t mean eschewing makeup altogether; it just means using it selectively to enhance our features for a natural look.
We decided to call this Beauty Box “Everyday Chic,” because these are some of the products you can use and wear daily. I’m a Lipstick 💄 Girl, so of course there’s a lipstick. 😉
Take a look at the video, and then read more about the products below. As with the skincare, all products are paraben-free and cruelty-free.
Products for “le No Makeup Look”
Re-Creation Lip Treatment. This is a product I swear by and have been using for a couple of years. I used to be plagued with dry, rough, flaky lips, no matter how much lip balm I applied. Within a few days of using this lip treatment I saw remarkable improvement. My lips were much smoother and that flakiness was gone. I use it 2 or 3 times a day, and wouldn’t be without it! As Brian says in the video, apply a few minutes before your lip color, and let it soak in.
Dahlia Cheeky Glow Creme Blush. What I love about this blush is that it looks natural and stays on. A little goes a long way. This color is more peachy, but according to Brian works with many different skin tones. If you prefer something cooler, the “Blooming” color is a nice option.
Neapolitan Longwear Gel Lipliner. This lip liner is amazing. It works with almost any color lipstick I wear, and really stays on. Keeps your lipstick from “migrating” too!
Sheer Moisture Lipstick in “Roj.” Brian introduced this line of lipsticks in the Spring, and gave me some to try. I’ve been using them ever since. The formula is fantastic: sheer and moisturizing, but long-wearing. This is the color I wear most often. As I mentioned in the video it looks great without liner for everyday, or with liner for a more finished look. All of the colors in this line are subtle and very wearable!
Eyebrow Pencil in Natural Taupe. This is another favorite of mine for a natural, everyday look.

My skincare priorities are making sure every night I wash my makeup off of my face.
I like a kind of light berry colored lipstick, try to keep it natural, just a little enhanced.
I love a soft mauve lip and a no makeup look..
I have almost no upper lip and my lips have a lot of natural color, so I struggle with lipstick and lip liner. I try to use a liner to make my upper lip bigger, but I’m always afraid I’ll look like a clown.
I do like wearing lipstick because I believe it brightens my face. Even when I don’t wear any makeup, I try to put on some lipstick although I often default to wearing just lip balm.
I love lipstick and am always on the search for my “perfect” color…..however I usually come home with a new sample only to discover that it’s exactly the same shade as what’s already in my makeup bag :~). The lip treatment sounds wonderful!
Well, wouldn’t this be a lovely gift for myself!
I mostly wear a neutral plummy rose or warm coral
All my lipsticks seem to have the word ‘rose’ in the name. I guess it’s the shade that looks most like my own natural shade but better, like you said in the video!
I’ve been looking for a new lipstick color and lip treatment. This looks like the ticket.
Lipstick and earrings are a daily must. I wear every color from rose to true red depending mood and occasion.
These are lovely colors and would look great on ME or many others. Thanks for the giveaway.
Une femme is the only blog that consistently addresses my fashion beauty concerns. It doesn’t hurt that we are both spring, petite gamines. Thanks for the tips.
I’m looking for a “mature” coral that’s not too orange and not too pink
Pat present using an old red Chanel lipstick. Need a colour boost and a lip treatment!
The lip treatment sounds wonderful. And I love the color of the blush and lipstick!!
There was a time clinique’s black honey was my favorite color. Now I prefer cooler, more rose tones in a lipstick. The lip treatment sounds ideal for the cold climate in central New York!
My go-to lipstick is MAC “Rebel.”
I’ve been wearing a plum shade of lipstick. Sheer but not very long lasting.
I, too, am a lip balm junky….So ready to try re-creation lip treatment! I like a cool red lipstick with the rest of my makeup muted.
I love Chanel Dazzling Bronze–but it is no longer available!
My favorite is Charlollte Tillbury ‘Pillowtalk!’
I would like to buy the “Beauty Box” if I don’t win!
I also, don’t wear makeup- and have very dry lips.
The description of these products sound perfect for me. Thank you-
Since my lips have thinned as I’ve aged, I tend to wear more warm nude shades. The color in this give a way looks delightful!
I have worn Bobbi Brown “ Brownie” for many years.
I’m stuck in a rut with pinks for my lips, but I am looking another color, an everyday color to wear that isn’t pink that I can wear when at home, on the errands, visiting friends or out to dinner.
Sephora lip stain. Agree that as we mature, less is best.
A make up palette without lipstick is like an outfit without shoes.
First of all, you both look so cute onscreen! And that turquoise top looks great on you! I love the “no makeup” look as well. I’m a true autumn, so I wear warm, not too intense shades of lipstick, and I’m thinking that the Roj lipstick and Neapolitan liner you chose would be a good one for me.
Love the colors!!
I have problems with my lips and I am always searching for lip care!
I’m a minimalist, blush and lipstick, but as I’m aging I realize I need a little more help to pul off the no makeup look☺️
As a winter, I seem to do best with rose to cool red lip colours. When I look or feel tired, often lipstick helps!
One is from Make Up Forever: Rouge – Artist Natural. (Boy, is it hard to read those tiny words at the bottom of the tube! 🙂 )
I like to treat myself with a facial mask every Saturday night.
I like lipgloss, Clinique is my fav.
I love corals but they can be hard to find so I always sneak back to Burt’s Bees in « fig ».
I like plum in the winter, pink in the summer.
Like this post—will try the lip-creation treatment for my perpetually dried out lips!
Rarely wear lipstick although I would like to. My lips are thin and I can’t seem to find the right shade. I also am a spring.
I’m still on the hunt for a good moisturizing lipstick. Usually I find they are too drying so I end up wearing tinted lip balms in a rose or berry shade to give some color to my face. I’d certainly like to try Brian’s lip moisturizer.
I love lipstick and cannot walk out the door without it.
I love lipstick, but can never find the right color!
My skincare priority for face and lips is hydration and protection. I never go out with out some kind of protective foundation and lipstick with spf. These products being given away look beautiful and high quality. Thanks for the opportunity to try!
Excited to have a chance at trying Brian + Makeover Workshop’s products! Especially the lip treatment as we head into winter.
Have recently had color analysis. True Autumn, toasted. Having difficulty finding a good color.
Lately my favorite is Revlon Color Suede Ingenue
Love your posts! Great style, accessories and beauty products. MW Everyday Chic lunes and looks like it’s in my future. Thanks for sharing.
You look beautiful! Would love to add these products to my makeup! My coloring is like yours!
I wear MAC “Cherish” most days as I like a nude but better color. Great video! These products look wonderful!
The lip treatment sounds wonderful. Always have dry lips in the winter which becomes a problem when u love to wear lipstick. I prefer cooler tones but love all the products mentioned
I wear makeup every day, I just love to put it on. And I always wear red lipstick! Never leave the door without lipstick.
I love these colors – I have a neutral lip color I wear most days called “Adorbs” and red when I want to feel fancy. Love this combo tho and the lip treatment sounds grand! Love your blog! Really helped me with packing a carry on for a 2 week trip to Greece!
My current fave is Nars Caramel lip gloss. It’s a beautiful color that straddles the line between pink and peach. The only flaw is that it’s a paint apply. I’d love to find the shade in a lipstick– I much prefer a bullet.
I like a stepped-up natural look, so my lipsticks are pretty neutral. What a nice box of makeup essentials! I like to feel I have made a daily effort with my products and on the days I don’t, I don’t feel as polished (in a natural kind of way).
I wear mostly brown based lip colour, thank you for the chance to win this lovely set!
The colors in your beauty box are ones I feel. OST comfortable in. I will definitely purchase the balm for my flaky lips.
I love wearing lip color, my favorite color now is a rosy pink.
The Brian + Makeover Workshop product’s look amazing! Would love to win!
Yes to the no makeup look. I somehow found Maybelline Touchable Taupe which is a heightened version of my own coloring. Of course it’s being discontinued so I have amassed a trove of it.
These products look very nice.
I like a pinkish-brownish natural lip.
Like you, I prefer a no-makeup look. Creme eye shadows and blushes are my favorite on my drier skin.
Thanks for the give away opportunity! I usually wear a shade between berry and nude. It is hard to find a good all-around color, isn’t it?
My lips but better color. A soft berry color is usually best. I have a lot of orphans hanging around my makeup drawer that all seem too warm.
I love a natural, no make-up look and wear mostly peachy shades. Thanks for the giveaway.
I like the Roj lipstick color, it looks beautiful, warm, berry color, I think. I also like dusty rose shades
SKincare priorities are anti aging and sunscreen.
I love lipstick! It’s the one thing I feel I must put on before I leave the house. Thanks for the fun giveaway!
What a nice selection of products.
The colors are beautiful. It’s been fun to watch your color transformation. I’m a big fan of find your best colors (which for most of us, is not BLACK). I’m a hybrid between autumn and spring and love rosy coral lips and cheeks.
I love red lipsticks!
My lip color is a berry color; in the summer I go a bit pinky. As I age I wear less makeup but I struggle with foundation.
I’ve used Clinique “All Heart” since it was introduced years ago. I’m so disappointed that the formulation has changed, and the lovely light rosy red looks different. This change “broke my heart,” so I’m looking for a new favorite.
Always searching for the best my lips but better shade. I usually wear very neutral berry or wine colors. Thanks for the opportunity!
I never leave the house without wearing some type of lip product. I have several shades of pink that I wear in the warmer months and deeper berry shades in winter. The one I wear most often as a day to day neutral is Holistic Science Rose Flower tinted lip balm. And it smells heavenly!
Thank you for doing these giveaways! The products look great!
I’ve never tried (or even heard of) a GEL lip liner. I always use a liner and have been disappointed with the ones I’ve tried in the past. This sounds like a winner!
How about “Baked Earth”? — I really like a sheer muted russet color, somewhere between brown and red.
Most lipstick looks false on me. Dryness make lip care a must. Burts Bees balm in Fig is my current look.
I love Red Apple Lipstick! I like a lot of their colors, but Petal to the Metal is my favorite. My lips, but better.
My lipstick of choice for fall/winter is a dark burgundy. For spring/summer, plum. When my fav high end discontinued, I adopted Revlon Colorstay. It can be applied sheer or fuller coverage and stays on forever. Would love to try new colors/brands. Inertia seems to have set in
I am finding that, since I’m now a “cool,” I like wearing a softer red…Look Fabulous Forever has some great colors for the older woman who is a “cool.” I’m also wearing more soft plums…but still love wearing something in the peach family
I usually wear Clinique Bamboo Pink lip color.
Thanks Susan and Brian for offering such a lovely prize.
Would love to win & I’m in the US for 2 weeks!
I always wear lipstick, usually a neutral pink shade with some brown undertones.
Bobby Brown Soft Rose.
While I have others, this is my daily go to shade
Great giveaway! My favorite lipstick is “Serenity!”
I’ve not used a lipliner ever and lipstick is hit and miss. Guess I’m missing out.
I love to wear the plums, with the cool undertones. I’m a true winter. Thank you.
I usually wear a nude or mauve lip so this color is great!
I usually wear a brownish-pink. The color in this beauty box looks perfect.
I wear a brownish coral lipstick but am trying to find a nude which does not make me look washed out. I would love to try the gifts in the giveaway box. I love,your blog!
I always lean towards peachy tones in my lipsticks and blushes. I am using cream blush now that I’m more mature (65) and I love how natural it looks. Thanks for the giveaway!
I like the neutral shades of lipstick. I never leave the house without putting some on my lips.
I lean towards peach tones in both lipstick and blush. Thanks for the giveaway!
How wonderful, another opportunity to win these wonderful products.
I am about out of the lip treatment, really like this product.
The lipstick duo looks like the perfect everyday color I always seek.
Anxious to try the cheek color.
Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving
Because I am a “winter,” I look best in blue red and bright pink lipsticks. I enjoy wearing berry shades in the fall and winter.
Thank you for this opportunity. As we are of a similar age and stature, I enjoy your blog very much!
I am a fall in color tones and mostly wear lipstick in warm reds and peachy tones. This giveaway looks perfect for me and the eyebrow pencil sounds perfect too.
I have always liked Clinique’s black honey lip gloss, but since learning I am an Autumn, I have been using lipstick with more coral/rust tones. I like a liquid blush from Origins called Pinch my cheeks. Love your blog! Thanks for this giveaway.
Lipstick is my bête noire. I would love a way to use it properly and to have smooth lips.
I struggle with lipsticks so I usually play it safe. Usually a brownish pink works the best
I’ve been playing it safe and sticking to nudes☹️ I need to expand my color universe.
I almost always default to a soft neutral or rosy shade and long to find that perfect red lip color.
I am a faithful reader of your blog and love your fashion and make up posts. I love lip colour and wear a cool toned rose or plummy lip colour on a daily basis. I also have a lovely cool sheer red lipstick (Chantecaille) for the days you want some red in your life!
I always end up with a dark berry color but now it feels too harsh as I’ve gotten older. I’d like to find a softer color. Great giveaway! The Re-Creation sounds wonderful!
I absolutely love Jane Iredale’s Rose colour lipstick. Also Clinique does a nice Strawberry in its chubby stick. I have fair skin with pink & blue undertones.
Love this giveaway . I have heard you mention this line in your blogs & your more basic everyday look. I like a more natural look also. I have sensitive skin & allergies so eye makeup can be an issue for me.
I have a Stila medium pink shade that’s a semi-matte, but I couldn’t tell you the name of it without looking on the package.
Berry is the best lip color
My favorite is a sheer red like Nars Gipsy.
I wear YSL le. Orange or Cindy ‘s Boom lip/ cheek glaze.
Mac Oh honey is my fav but I’m always looking for advice as I age. Thanks for a super giveaway.
I usually wear Clinique Shy, or my go-to, always in my purse, is Burt’s Bee’s Red Dahlia Lip Balm.
I’m a lipstick,lipgloss and lip liner addict. Thank you for this giveaway, Susan!
I usually wear lipsticks in the pink family. I am all for a less is best approach.
Mostly coppery or brownish plums with a golden undertone or shimmer. Sometimes a softer peach or nude. Estee Lauder had a color called “Tiger Eye” that was the best ever for me, but sadly they stopped making it.
I prefer a mauve color liptick or just a plain shiny gloss
I always gravitate toward mauve so I have about 15 lipsticks that all look exactly the same♀️
I almost always wear coral lipstick.
I wear plum colored lipsticks!
My mantra is moisturizer 24/7! Then some blush, lipstick and mascara.
I try all sorts, but always look best and most alive with a soft berry shade — think Clinique black honey. Thanks for this opportunity. What a pretty set!
My favorite lip color is a neutral peachy pink
I usually wear a tinted balm with spf, because I always feel like lipstick is too “grown up” for me. But I also realized the other day that I’m firmly in my 30s, and if there was ever a time to start experimenting with grown up looks, it’s now! I’ve got a deep red that looks very good with my skin tone, now I just need to step up my outfit game to accommodate the extra makeup effort I’ve been putting in
I wear a sheer plum color, more like a lip balm than a lipstick.
Hi Susan, I love lipstick, and have tried for far too many years to get the right color for me – not too light, not too dark, just……flattering. I have very similar coloring to you, and because those lip colors look so beautiful on you, I can only hope that I might be lucky enough to win these colors to try.
I tend to like a rosy nude color – an enhancement of my natural lip. But I will try more bold colors from time to time!
Have a few favorites, but my latest is NARS “Hot Voodoo” , a warm bronze. This gift set looks like it has colors I also wear.
The lipstick colors I wear the most are more of a berry color. I have a cool skin tone so these colors work best for me.
Susan I’m like you the less makeup is the best.
Because I have rosacea and my face can get quite pink, I tend to wear brownish-pinkish lipsticks. I love the color that you are wearing today!
I wear mostly soft pinks, sometimes I use bright red.
My go-to lipstick is TWIG by MAC.
I like a color that’s light burgundy and sheer.
I love a peach toned neutral lipstick. Nude Beach from Smashbox was a fav, but it is now discontinued. Thanks for the fun giveaway contest!
I usually wear plum colors. I would try Blomme from this line.
I love the simple, but healthy look. These products look wonderful. A matte rose is my go-to. A fun offer!
Thanks for this opportunity ~ These products look great on you!
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy 127 with Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner in Dolly Danger
I like a nude lip color topped by gloss.
I like corals, but they often turn pink on me. I’m currently using Ulta Lip Crayon in Sugar and Spice.
I am approaching 70 and my skin is getting drier by the day, especially my lip area. Help!
I wear berry and corals in Clinique lipsticks and would love to try something new. Thanks for the opportunity!
I wear a lip balm with SPF then a reddish brown lipstick. Protecting my lips is important!
I love lipstick, but my lips are quite dry, so I usually stick to nude shades.
My favorite lip color is Nude with a slight cool tone.
I usually wear mauve lipstick and lipgloss.
Rum Raisin and Rose are my usual lip shades.
Another lovely giveaway! I always wear the lipstick!! Thanks.
I’m a minimalist when it comes to make up, so this Beauty Box sounds perfect to me. My usual lipstick colour is called Demure and is very subtle. For something a bit more dramatic, I blend two colours… Smoky Rose and Copper Frost.
Thank you for these great makeup tips! I have been using Jane Iredale lipstick. The color is Ashley.
I had been wearing some Burt’s Bees lip shimmers because they felt like lip balm, but have recently discovered Chantecaille. I bought Ceylon & love the way it feels. Would love to try a richer shade.
Love watching your style evolution!
I usually wear red, but often vibrant pinks.
I love Dior Bold and Dior Lip Glow in Berry. They are plum/berries. I have a cool complexion
I try different things but lean toward naturals w a little bit of color.
I usually wear a dark pink. I have to be careful because many lipsticks turn orange on me, and that’s not a good look. Thanks for the giveaway!
Since I have olive skin tone I stay away from corals and orange and think I look better in plums, berries and some reds.
My fav lipstick is MAC russian red
I love this color!
My go to lip color is Burt’s Bees fig
I most often use Clinique Chubby Stick in Balm. I love that color.
Love lipstick and bought the Charlotte Tilbury you recommended some time back. As I age, the lip migration issue has kept me away from my beloved reds. Currently using a spice pencil and a lip tint, but need to figure out something new to adjust to the aging lips!
Lipstick is my one necessity, even if I skip other makeup. I love many colors, but a rosy neutral is my favorite.
Lipstick Queen Saint Natural
I love Vapour’s natural lipsticks, my fave color is Tawny.
That said, I really would like to reset my look and stick with one brand to make things easier. Looking forward to checking out Makeover Workshop!
I think I’m a summer, and my best lipstick colors are cool pinks and berry pinks. My hair is light silver and my eyes are blue, so I really need lipstick to add color to my face. Thank you for making this excellent video!
I wear lipstick colors that have pink undertones. Even when I have no makeup on I always wear lipstick!
I tend to wear a pink lip stain.
For everyday, I use Lancome’s Blush Classique.
This looks like a very useful giveaway! Thanks for sponsoring it. My everyday “go-to” lipstick is a sheer berry color.
Love lipstick! My Favorite colour is red, followed by hot pink.
I like a warm nude or soft coral for summer, and for this winter I am wearing a bright orange-red. It gives me a boost on dreary days.
These are lovely colors, thank you for this giveaway.
I wear rose to plum colored lipsticks. One I wear goes well with everything I wear even red. Thanks for all your tips!
My default lip color is a nude plum color for a natural look. I have tried some other colors like red or a darker hue, but I feel more like me with the plum color.
Nice give-away! I love rose colors.
I wear a mix of different colors from black, pink, red, coral, blue.. I really don’t have a go-to color.. Just whatever I’m in the mood for! I’m a lipstick guru!
Love the Brown/neutral color lipsticks and I always use a dark brown lip liner.
Never leave home without the lipstick!
I like a warm/neutral color. Right now my favorite is Aveda Feed My Lips in Honey Ginger.
I alternate between a rosy neutral pinks and red. Many red lip colors look pink on me, But NARS jungle red or Burberry regiment red look red.
I wear minimal makeup but I do love lipstick every day! I wear lighter pinks in summer and deeper rosy colors the rest of the year.
I like colors in the berry family.
Neutral colors or coffee colors
I enjoy your thoughtful posts and the products look great! I wear “warm” lipstick colors.
I too am a big fan of lipsticks! I wear more pinks and roses in the winter and tend to pick peachy tones for the long Arizona summers-but always moisturizing formulas with a little sheen-no mattes for this girl!
I have great, full lips but they’re not very pigmented. I wear all kinds of different colors but usually default to mauves and roses.
I’m in need of inspiration so thank you for this posting! I, too, am a fan of the no-makeup-look — but, alas, I still need makeup! I tend to buy and wear (day in and day out) one lipstick shade — always a (slightly enhanced!) natural shade. For the last couple years, I’ve worn a lipstick by Coola but that particular shade has been discontinued. Before that, I was wearing NARS Rikugien.
If I wear a lip color, it’s usually a light berry color.
I’ve purchased some of Brian’s products based on your blog recommendations. Would love to try the Re-Creation Lip Treatment. I prefer colors very close to natural lip color.
I wear mostly browns!
I am actually looking for a new lipstick and I pull towards darker earth tones.
I wear blue-based colors because my teeth aren’t naturally really white. Usually muted berry/red colors, lighter/brighter in summer, darker in winter.
i usually wear berry tints. My lips but better:)
I usually wear a rose color with a hint of brown, similar to the one shown in the photo above! Would love to win this!
I usually wear a light pink lipstick
I .like lighter shades
coral or mauve
I wear a pink nude.
My makeup regime has to be simple, but I like to look “turned out.” When I wear lipstick, it’s neutral and understated. I use make to emphasize my eyes.
Full on magenta! Bit of a bore?
My go-to is a grey-taupe-mauve. Many shades go orange on my skin.
Most often i wear a shade of pink.
I usually wear a glossy dark pink
Perfect lip color
I kind of like lipsticks with a brownish or golden tinge. The one in the box looks great!
Lava Berry by Mary Kay is my new favorite color after they retired Raisinberry. Use the nude lip pencil first for long-lasting color.
I tend to go for light pink lip glosses lately.
Soft red shade
I prefer rusty reds but not super dark.
I usually wear nude/brownish colors.
Usually fairly natural colors in comparison to bold ones. I really want to try the treatment out since my lips dry out every winter. It’s not typical for me but the makeup color is beautiful.
I wear a ruby red lipstick most often.
Is there a product ingredient list for Brian + MW? Thank you
