I am a lipstick fiend. I own so many that I love but here I’ve narrowed my collection down to my all time favourites. I’ve tried to include a range here, from wearable day time nudes, to bold reds. Some of them you can see just how much they are loved by how worn down they are, I definitely need to make a couple of repurchases soon!
Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Lips Platinum Blonde
Usually, I’m not a fan of liquid lipsticks. I often find them difficult to apply, too drying on the lips, and they don’t wear off well. However, Charlotte’s formula is much more like applying soft, melty lipstick which is comfortable to wear. It dries to a nice matte finish without looking dry and is really pigmented. This shade is a pinky nude which is really wearable through the day or night.
MAC – Diva
This is a matte formula with a deep red, berry pigment. I love this as it’s such a bold colour, which is great for night time looks, but also totally wearable during the day through autumn and winter. Even though it’s matte, I find it comfortable to wear and it lasts really well.
MAC – Whirl
I have been obsessed with this matte brown-nude shade for about a year now. For a nude it’s quite a bold shade which I love because it almost feels like you’re wearing a red but it’s easier to wear and match with other colours. It’s great for a night out with heavier eye makeup but I also love it during the day if I’m going out and it’s warm tones make it great for Autumn. You can see My Go To Autumn Makeup that I created using this lipstick here.
MAC – Viva Glam II
This lipstick is possibly my all time favourite. It’s a beige-pink nude but the shade is sort of unusual as its quite cool toned. I find it suits my skin tone really well and I love to wear it with a bright peachy pink eyeshadow all over my lids. The satin formula means it’s really comfortable to wear but it still lasts well. Of course, the best thing about the Viva Glam Lipsticks is all the money from the sale price goes towards helping people affected by HIV and AIDS.
This is my favourite red lipstick. It’s a deep red shade, which I like as its not too dark but not a bright red either, in MAC’s cremesheen formula. I love wearing it on nights out with glittery, smoky eyes as it makes me feel really glam.
Clinique – Nude Pop
This is a gorgeous “your lips but better” shade with a tiny bit of shimmer and gloss, fab for adding a little extra to your everyday makeup. The formula is really creamy and comfortable and the pigment is amazing. It also seems to make my lips look extra full!
I’d love to here about your favourite lipsticks!
