When you have 25 lipsticks in a makeup bag, there are going to be some faves and some duds out of the bunch. Really, I do like all 25; why else would I have bought them in the first place? However, these are the top ten that I think suited me the most, or really pulled a specific look together.
Rimmel Provocalips (Little Minx): This is a really pink shade that is so hydrating on the lips and very long lasting. Yes, I struggled to remove it with makeup remover and you can still see it in the second photo! This is such a pretty one to team up with the Sweet Peach palette with all the gorgeous coral shades within that palette.
Nyx Matte Lipstick (Euro Trash): I was obsessed with finding this shade after Shelbey Ashburn posted a photo on Instagram wearing this lipstick. I love Shelbey’s style and wanted that lipstick. I finally got hold of it and it is worth the wait. This is a lovely matte fawn brown shade. It’s very wearable and quite comfortable to wear for a matte lipstick.
Nars Audacious Lipstick (Barbara): You guys know how much love I have for the Nars Audacious Lipsticks. They are an absolutely stunning collection, and this one is no exception. This is my smoky eye lippie. I love it!
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream (Amsterdam): Out of all of the Nyx lip products bought that day, the soft matte lip creams are probably my favourite. They fell so comfortable on the lips, are very hydrating. They also don’t budge once applied. This one did pass the dreaded burger test; Or in the true Northern lass tradition; the bacon sarnie test!
No7 Stay Perfect LipLacquer (Nectar): This is actually a love-hate product. I love the shade itself. It’s gorgeous and so long-lasting. I hate the gloss. It’s sticky and gives the impression of lips melting. Honestly, I drove to work and my chin felt odd. I found the gloss dripping down my chin. It did not look good and I hadn’t even applied that much. But for the actual colour, this is amazing.
Nyx Liquid Suede (Kitten Heels): This is such a gorgeous true red shade! It’s very pigmented, applies like a dream and stays put. I love this! Of course, I wear red any time of day with any look; I just love a good red!
MAC Brooke Candy (Whirl): Whirl is in the main line of lippies but I loved the Brooke Candy packaging. This is a beautiful light chocolate brown. I wore this for work today and it gave the impression of larger juicier lips. So this could be a contender for a Kylie Jenner lipstick dupe!
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream (Rome): When I noticed this collection was named after different capital cities I rumaged around trying to find Rome. I love anything to do with Italy and I wanted something to link with one of my favourite places in the world that I would love to visit. This is a gorgeous nude shade which I do wear for work quite a bit.
MAC Matte Lipstick (So Chaud): Oo if you want Summer in a lippie, get your paws on this one! It’s a gorgeous bright orange. I love orange lipsticks in the Summer. This one is beautiful with a bright turquoise eyeshadow. The formula is really long-lasting too.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream (Budapest): This is such a gorgeous purply red-toned nude. I love this with quite a neutral eye. Again, this is very long lasting and comfortable on the lips, and perfect for both day and night looks. I love it!
So those are mine, what lippies have you been loving this month?
Have a great day guys!
