After seeing Louise from Sprinkle Of Glitter do a video about her favourite lipsticks I was super inspired to do the same! I popped a video up on my YouTube channel which I will embed at the end of this blog post incase you'd like to see it, but I also couldn't resist snapping a few pictures!
Beehive from 17 cosmetics is the perfect 'my lips but better' kind of shade. It's such a wearable colour that will quite literally go with any make up look and the formula is just beautiful, leaving behind a glossy finish to the lips - so no need to faff around with an extra lipgloss over the top! Perfect low maintenance make up!
Viva Glam Cyndi from MAC is one that I won't talk about too much because it was limited edition and no longer available, which I'm super sad about. This is probably one of my all time favourite lipstick shades and I'm currently kicking myself for not picking up approximately twelve million back ups. I really need to find a dupe for this shade although I have a feeling I'll never find anything quite as nice as Cyndi!
Illamasqua's Fable was, I think, my first ever high end make up purchase and I still love it just as much now as I did when I first got it. I don't reach for it all the time because it is very matte which is a finish that I find quite difficult to work with, but, the colour is just the most perfect warm pink. This shade will always hold a special place in my heart!
Another shade from Illamasqua making its way into my top ten is called Obey and this is the perfect peachy pink shade. Gosh, Illamasqua know how to make some amazing colours! As soon as summer rolls around I'll be wearing this non stop!
Again, I won't talk about this lipstick, which is Pillow Talk from Topshop Make Up, for long because it's limited edition but I will say that this is a super pretty classic baby pink shade with a truly lovely formulation. I wish this wasn't limited edition because I know how many people adore this lipstick!
This one is technically not a lipstick so I think I may be cheating slightly but I'm just going to go with it! I really do love the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams and my favourite shade is called Fairy Cake. A muted coral pink, this is one of those colours that goes with so many different make up looks, and with a good lip balm underneath I really love the finish of these. They smell like cake too - yummy!
Revlon Pink Pout is a beautiful mid toned pink shade with slight purpley undertones and I absolutely adore this lipstick. It is a matte formulation but I don't find these to be anywhere near as matte as Illamasqua's so this is much easier for me to wear on a daily basis. It's not really drying at all which I was pleasantly surprised about, and the colour is just gorgeous!
Baby Pink from Revlon's ColorBurst line is a beautiful sheer glossy pink that you don't even have to think about when you're applying it. The packaging is lovely, the formula is pretty bloody amazing and the finish is extremely flattering on the lips. You definitely don't need an extra gloss over the top of this and the warm pink colour really helps to brighten up my entire complexion! Love it!
Including Lovelorn from MAC may be cheating slightly as I haven't had it for very long but it has fast become an all time favourite shade! This is a perfect every day lipstick shade for me and the lustre finish is my favourite - it's glossy but not too glossy and it lasts for a good amount of time so I don't have to reapply every 5 minutes. The colour is perfect, a mid toned blue pink that makes my teeth look whiter and my complexion brighter. Perfect!
Finally, I couldn't not include this in my favourites and it is the infamous Cherries in the Snow from Revlon. I don't think there's anything else I can say about this other than it is just absolutely perfect!
What are your favourite lipsticks? Are there any shades that you think I absolutely have to go and check out?
