There used to be a time in my life where I didn't wear lipstick. I didn't like the way it felt and I thought it just didn't look right one me.
Fast forward a few years and I have a huge collection! Lipsticks, lip glossed, liquids, lattes, shines. You name it I have it. I love different colours too, my favourites are pinks, nudes and reds. I am always on the search for the best lipstick, the one that will stay on no matter what, if I drink, eat or kiss I want it to stay on. My problem is I am a lip licker, I can't not do it, so it tends to take lipsticks off, but one day I will find that one that doesn't come off.
Anyway back to my love! I want to show you my current faves lipsticks, these are ones I use all the time and ones I cant do without.
Revolution Soph Nude Lipstick - Cake
Mmmmm cake (flash backs of Sarah Millican's cake pigeon). Yes there is actually a lipstick called Cake!!! Soph from Soph does Nails, has done 3 collabs now with Revolution Make Up, her third was a set of 3 lipsticks, with the most delicious names, Cake, Syrup and Fudge. When she introduced these lipsticks on her Youtube channel I saw how nice and pinky toned Cake was and I needed it in my life.
I got mine from Revolutions website but they can also be purchased from Superdrug too. The formula is so creamy, it stays really nicely on your lips and for me the colour is like my lips but better. Dare I say it, it is my perfect nude. Yes I actually said it (gasp).
Not only is the lipstick it self so pretty but the packaging is so cute, it is a light nude colour on the bottom with the lid in rose gold, when you open it the tube is all rose gold.
Revolution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment - Inconspicuous
I can't really talk about my favourite lipsticks without including the one I wore on my wedding day. Wedding lipstick it something I wanted to make sure was perfect for a two reasons, 1 - pictures, 2 - our kiss. Paul doesn't like the lipsticks that come off on his lips when we kiss, so I needed something that really was god and wouldn't come off easy.
My dress was 50's style and to me the first thing that comes to my head with I think of the 1950's is a red lip, so that is what I wanted. I searched high and low to find that perfect cute red that I had in my head. I tried Sleek, Mac, Urban Decay and I couldn't find that right colour. Until one day out at Superdrug on my break from work I saw it right there, this bright cute red and I know ''that's the one''. At the bargain price of £4!
I love the colour it is an orange red, with I think is just perfect for me. It applies quiet think so little is more, you need to give it a little time to dry, but when it does you have a lippy that is kiss proof. It did come off when I had a drink but Paul was safe for the first kiss as Mr and Mrs.
Sleek Lip V.I.P Lipstick - Dream Decade
What is life without a bright pink lipstick?? Well for me I have quite a few but I love them so much, bright pink is such my colour and most of summer is spent in one. So picking my fave is quite hard, but when you have a lippy like Dream Decade then picking becomes a little bit easier.
I got this from boots and I just love it. I have spoke about this a while ago in another blog, but I can't help but list it again, it is just so pretty. This pink honestly reminds me of Kelly from Jelly with the Belly, just because it looks like her hair, which I also love!!!
This one is again creamy but the down side is I do find it does that weird thing in the corner of my lips where it sort of bunches together and goes all weird, it looks like my lips are dry and flaky, I don't know if this happens to just me or others too, but I find it is a down side for me, but my love of the colour overcomes that.
Urban Decay Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick - Bad Blood
No Bad Blood is not just a Taylor Swift song, it is a lovely deep red lipstick that was my first purchase from Urban Decay. I had never made a high end purchase before so when I was mooching around the stand I didn't really think I would buy anything. I wanted something that was red because I love red, and I spoke to the girl on the counter about which finish I wanted, I had never had a matte before but she said that this was a nice creamy matte instead of a dry matte.
I had always had problems with my lips when ever I tried a matte lipstick so I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with one or not, but with it being more of a comfort matte it has moisture in it so it isn't as drying as others.
This is more of my winter colours, I love having my pale skin (no fake tan for me), my dark hair and a darker lip in winter, it just makes me happy.
New Look Pure Colour Lipstick - Mink
I was not sure if I should put this one in my blog as technically you cant get this one anymore but it really is one of my favourite nude lipsticks. I have had it for a while and now it is getting to the end I am getting so sad that I wont be able to get it again.
I got this from New Look about 2 years ago and I just love it. It's a high shine lipstick in nude, it is super creamy and super cute to wear especially if you have a nice bold eye look, this is probably another one of my my lips but better lipsticks. It also has a nice smell, which I don't really think is a normal thing for lipstick but it really does. It smells quite floral. So from now on when I go shopping I will make sure this is in my bag so I can compare the colour to other lipsticks.
So these are my favourites .... for now, but my collection will grow and my favourites will change. Which colours of lippy do you love? Are any of these yours??
See you soon
Lots of love
