Favourite LipsticksBelieve me, I have tried A LOT of lipsticks over the years. I have dismissed many brands and types because they bleed or they don’t last, they dry my lips or I simply don’t like the colour. Finally, I have found some diamonds amongst the dirt. Below are my tried and tested, and ultimate favourite lipsticks.
To see them on me, check out my video here.
1.Maybelline Super Stay 24 color £8.99 , Red Passion is what I live in during the week. But since I have been wearing this for over 7 years now, I have explored some of the other colours. My other favourites are 140 Roaring Rose, 195 and 515. This is the most long lasting lipstick I have found – it can be a little drying on your lips so remember to top up with the gloss stick end throughout the day.
2.YSL – Rouge Pur Couture (colour worn off and still haven’t found it in stores) £26 The SPF 15 protects your lips which makes this perfect for summer. It’s a simple, lovely moisturising lipstick that feel luxurious on your lips and doesn’t bleed.
3.Mac impassioned Amplified £15.50. This is a great lipstick that gives you a great lift of colour – it pops on the skin! I find the pigment is good enough that it doesn’t need a lip liner either.
4.BourjoisEffet 3D – Rose 20. £7.99 Love this for just a little bit of colour for days when I am not wearing full on makeup but still need some colour in my lips. Natural, but still pretty.
5.Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk £16 with Bourjois Sweet Kiss Gloss £7.99 This lipliner is a great one for your staple collection. It works with any nude or pale lipstick/gloss colour, and just gives your lips a bit more definition.
