Lips, Lipstick, Lipgloss & Lippies

My mum, while being a makeup minimalist, has always had a weakness for good lipsticks. When I first started wearing makeup years ago, her advice was simple:  no makeup look is complete without some colour on your lips.

Perhaps her advice is the reason I’ve been wearing more lip products recently. Or it might just be because I have been lazy and haven’t wanted to fiddle around with liquid liners and brushes. Whatever the reason, I have been regularly sporting a bright or bold lip on nights out these past few months.  Here are some of the products that I have been reaching for!


1. MAC Lipstick in See Sheer
A sheer coral that looks different on everyone. On me it looks like a peachy coral but on my friend who has very red lips, it looks like a bright tangerine coral.

2. Essence Stay With Me Longlasting Lipgloss in Candy Bar
A pigmented, bright coral lipgloss that is hydrating. Is has no glitter or shimmer, which makes it great for day wear. And the price point is fantastic! Can you really ask for more?

3. MAC Lipstick in Captive
One of the first MAC lipsticks I ever bought and one of my favourites ’till today. Similar to my own lips, it’s a pink with berry/plum tones.

4. Milani Colour Statement Lipstick in Uptown Mauve
Colour statement is right! This lipstick is bold and I love it! Smooth, creamy, great smell, strong pigmentation and sleek packaging. Plus it’s not drying. All around ten.

5. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in 06
A deep red that leaves a stain as it fades- which is great for when you can’t always run to a mirror and re-apply. Funny enough, my boyfriend bought this for me. He was never a huge fan of red lips but this baby changed his mind.

6. Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Lollipop
A buttery, smooth formula in a bright hot pink. My only word of caution with this line is that the buttery texture of these lippies can cause them to bleed and smudge, so a lipliner is necessary.

That’s all for now! If you’ve got a colour you’ve been loving recently, comment below! I’d love to hear.

P.S. Don’t forget to enter the contests from my last post if you haven’t already! Good Luck!
