If you had asked me 2 years ago what my favourite lipsticks are, I would have said none! Only recently have I really began to love a good lipstick as I have discovered there are amazing ones out there for every occasion.
I now have a quickly expanding collection of lipsticks, however, there are three that stick out as my favourites. These are my go to products that can take me from the day time to evening.
Day: for the day time I usually like to keep things simple and easy. I love a good lipstick that doesn’t require 10 minutes of intense concentration in front of a mirror to apply. My absolute favourite, although it is rather new addition to my collection, is Mac Patisserie. This is a part of the Lustre range from Mac, which means it is super creamy, does not dry out at all on your lips and has a velvety finish. This is my perfect nude shade with pinky/brown undertones. It is definitely a ‘your lips but better’ colour and that’s exactly why I love it for every day use.
Sheer Colour: for those times where I’m feeling a little adventurous and almost want to go for a bold lip but don’t quite have the courage, I like to go for a lipstick with a sheer colour. I absolutely love my Dior Addict Extreme in 536, as it gives me the perfect wash of red/pink over my lips. Once again it is so creamy and not at all drying. As this lipstick is quite sheer, it fades in a wonderful way that is not streaky at all. I know this is a rather high end product, however, there are so many amazing drugstore alternatives out there that give a similar effect.
Bold: now for the moments where nothing is stopping me and all I want to do is don the boldest lip out there. To me, when I think of a bold lip I automatically lean towards the perfect red. It makes your teeth look whiter and is ultimately, very glamorous (given that it is the perfect shade for you). My favourite has to be the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 22. This is a full on bold, bright red lip, that I love! Once applied (and blotted) the colour doesn’t fade or streak at all. Not only is it affordable, but it is such a great texture.
So there you have it. My favourite 3 lipsticks for 3 different occasions. What are your favourite lipsticks? I’m always willing to try some more and add to my collection!
