So, over the last two years, i’ve become some what of a lipstick/lipgloss hoarder, I honestly just can’t help myself. I thought i’d do a little post on some of my favourites at the moment. This is a post that i’ve seen a lot of people do recently(i’m guessing it’s down to Zoella’s post?) and being the lipstick loving lady that I am, I thought i’d throw my 10 pence in.
Just a little apology for the photography, it will get better.
The first lipstick is actually the most expensive in this post, but let me tell you, it’s well worth it! I found myself with Max Factor’s Lipfinity
in the shade #340
when my fantastic mumma received it in a free gift box after she spent a few pennies in boots! Hands down this is one of the longest lasting lip colours I have ever
owned! As you can see above, it comes with a lipgloss/lipstick and a top coat. You first apply the “lipgloss” which after about 30 seconds dries to a lipstick, does that make sense? I hope it does!
Then you go ahead and apply the top coat, which just feels like a lovely, moisturising lip balm! This shade is beautiful and perfect for spring/summer time! It’s a lovely peachy, coral shade that I think it would suit most skin tones. There are so many shades available
, I can’t wait to get more! These little bad boys are available from boots for £10.99 each.
Next up is a lipstick that everyone needs in their handbag! Rimmel’s Lasting Finish lipstick
in shade #206, Nude Pink
. Such an easy shade to wear and the shine is incredible! Deffo more of a subtle, natural shade but I think it’s still a really flattering colour and again, a shade that would suit pretty much anyone! There are definitely hints of peach in the mix but still a very pretty pink. Not brilliant staying power but super easy to apply so popping it in your handbag is a must. Grab yourself this shade
now for just £4.99
This dark red/pink shade is probably my all time favourite lipstick! I find that for the price, £2.99, Collection lipsticks are such great quality. They’re super pigmented and last a fair while too. Although I do find that the shine wears off after a while but the colour seems to stay put. This one in particular is from their Gothic Glam range
which consists of three shades, which include this one Seduction #1
, a dark plum, Scorned #2
and a deep blood red shade, Revenge #3
. I wore this a lot during winter but I find that it’s also a great colour to wear on a night out through the summer months for something a bit more bold and daring! These lipsticks have a lovely sweet scent to them, i’m not sure if that’s valuable information for you
when choosing a lipstick but I just think it’s an added bonus, haha! They’re very creamy in texture and aren’t drying at all! A complete bargain at £2.99!
Another Collection lipstick now from they’re Lasting Colour Range
. This is quite a daring shade for me as it’s super orange(for me anyway, but it’s nothing compared to Topshop’s infrared
) and of course, orange tones bring out the yellow in your teeth, yuck
! But if i’m having a particularly good “teeth day
” I love it! From the shade to the subtle golden shimmer it has in it, it’s a beautiful summer shade for those who like a pop of colour. Another bargain at just £2.99.
Last but not least is another nude shade, this time from Rimmel’s Lasting Finish By Kate
collection, in the shade #03
. To be honest, I can’t even remember when I bought this, but recently i’ve found myself reaching for it in the morning’s. Another super easy, subtle shade to wear on a day to day basis. It has a super creamy texture and applies really evenly and again, this lipstick has a lovely sweet scent! I’m definitely going to be ordering some more shades from Kate Moss’ line for Rimmel, i’m all for a glossy, smooth finish!
