Before March this year i didn’t even wear lipstick, i thought no shade would suit me. Only a few months later i have an ever growing lipstick collection, they’re now the makeup item i buy the most so today i thought i’d show you my top 5 lipsticks in my collection.
As you can see from the picture i mostly go for pinks/pinky nudes; because i’m still quite new to lipstick i haven’t quite made it out of this shade range but i love each and every colour. Even though they do appear similar each one is different. My current favourite shades are great for the time of year we’re in but as we get into Autumn i think i may go slightly deeper in colour.
Starting with NYX, simply because i have two favourite lipsticks from this brand: I have two favourite shades from the soft matte lip cream range, shade 14 Zurich and 19 Cannes. Zurich is a light bright pink with a slight orange tone and Cannes is one of my favourite deeper pinks with a more red undertone. The soft matte lip creams are such cult favourites and i can completely see why, They are a really soft cream, dry down matte and are really affordable at £5.50 each.
As i write this the lipstick i’ve been wearing the most this week is the Revlon untra HD matte lip colour in Devotion. This is the most comfortable formula i’ve ever worn but they take ages to dry! I don’t really mind about the long drying time because the gel formula is so comfortable to wear, even when they do dry they still feel almost balm-like on your lips. The shade i own is Devotion which is a bright pink, i really want Revlon to expand the shade rage in this line so i can expand my collection.
Moving onto liquid lipsticks i have two in my collection: sleek matte me in birthday suit and Kylie cosmetics Posie K. Posie K is the deepest shade i own and definitely more autumnal. Sleek birthday suit is one of the only more nude lipsticks i own and i love it for everyday, it retails at £4.99 so its the cheapest one i own but i actually think its one of the best; its super matte and very long lasting. I really want to pick up the shade petal from the same range.
