If you are new here then you won’t know that I am a HUGE fan of lipstick! I love it and since starting my new job I have been alternating between these 8.
The lipsticks I have been loving range from the budget to the luxury, from the every day to the limited edition and from matte to sheer.
I did a haul recently from Colourpop which will be on my channel soon but I have been desperate to try the Ultra matte and Ultra satin liquid lipsticks. The two I have been loving so far are the Ultra matte in Creeper, a true blue toned red and the Ultra Satin in Baraccuda, a a warm deepened rose, have really impressed me.
The next one in the line up (swatched below) and at the end is Rimmel The Only one Matte lipstick in High Flyer and Trendsetter. If you were to mix the two they would be the same colour as the next favourite. The formula is so creamy to begin with and then it dries to matte….very matte…these are super long lasting and I get so many compliments when I wear it.
As I said, my next favourite has been an iconic lipstick for the most of 2015 and 2016, Velvet Teddy by MAC. This is a lovely matte colour and it looks different on everyone. This particular packaging is the limited edition packaging from the Shadescents collection which I like. I doubt I will finish it so I don’t mind having a limited edition one.
The same can be said for the next one, the one I was absolutely desperate to get hold of and not because of the colour per sé. More to do with the collboration. McCizzle is one of the lipsticks that is part of the Mariah Carey collection from MAC and you will see a few more posts about this collection in the future. The packaging alone makes i the most beautiful lipstick ever. It is so light in colour so I have to wear a lipliner all over the lips but it’s really a small price to pay for how gorgeous the packaging is.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Shade 438 Suzanne is the one that has really stolen my heart this January. It is quite a lovely finish, they say it’s a pearl finish and it’s definitely got that shiny look but it doesn’t look metallic.
The colour in the bullet is so dark but it definitely sheers out to a gorgeous plum. The lady in Boots was wearing it and I just couldn’t help but order it based on how it looked on her.
The final one is the one that really surprised me. The colour itself is STUNNING but I am not enamoured with the name….it’s Urban Decays, Gash… I won’t repeat it.
