If there’s one thing I like about make-up, it’s lipsticks. I always find an excuse to buy another, because I believe there’s so much variety in the consistency, how long they last, shades, etcetera. The options are endless. I truly believe that a lipstick can complete or change an entire look. Here’s a bit of a breakdown of my favourites.
- Volupté Tint-in-oil by Yves Saint Laurent
This one is perfect for days when you don’t really feel like wearing something visible. It’s very sheer but quite moisturising because of the oily formula. I choose this one when I like a little something-something and just reapply it throughout the day. Also, the packaging! Isn’t it gorgeous?
2. Everlasting liquid lipstick by Kat Von D
This one’s great for when you want some colour but don’t want to be thinking about smudging or lipstick on other places of your face other than your lips. It’s the longest lasting lipstick I have ever tried and the shade range that’s available right now is a-mazing.
3. Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in the shade 105
This lipstick is my favourite go-to lipstick on days when I don’t feel like putting on a lot of make-up but my face needs a little colour. It’s the my lip shade but better kind of lipstick, which I love because it’s so effortless.
4. MAC matte lipstick in the shade “Lady Danger”
If I had to choose one red lipstick, it’d be this one. This one requires a little more attention ( aka the use of a lipliner, retouching and careful application), but because of its orange-y undertone, it suits me perfectly with my blonde hair.
5. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Lip Gloss
Last but certainly not least, is this cute lip gloss from Clarins. I especially like this shade because it’s quite peachy and therefore my favourite summer lip gloss. It doesn’t taste bad and leaves a beautiful goldeny gloss.
