I’m no beauty blogger or makeup artist, but I do love makeup. In particular I love a good lipstick. Surveys have shown that 65% of women wear lipstick daily and 25% wouldn’t feel comfortable leaving the house without it. So I’m certainly not alone in my love.
In today’s post I’m going to share my 5 favourite lippys.
Mac Cosmetics – Ruby Woo
Are you surprised?? Probably not. Ruby Woo resides in most beauty babes collections. A staple with a reputation. This was actually the very first lipstick I bought from mac. The reason I bought it? Internet hype. I mean all these youtubers couldn’t possibly be wrong.
Buying my very first Mac lipstick was overwhelming to tell the truth. I don’t live near a counter so ordering online was my only option. Starting at £15 they’re definitely a treat and I desperately didn’t want to buy something I’d end up hating. This is the exact shade I think of when someone mentions a ‘red lip’. It’s a colour that look great on any skin tone and is comfortable to wear. It’s cool blue undertones also add a teeth whitening aspect.
Not sure where to start with Mac lippys? Start with Ruby Woo. You won’t regret it.
I promise this post isn’t Mac, mac, mac.
Now this admitidly isn’t an everyday kinda shade, unless you’re super brave. It’s also not going to be for everyone. Yet it’s still one of my absolute favourites. Rocking this bold blue lip, with the blue streaks in my hair. I truely feel like a bad ass. A fun look for filming in or wearing on a night out.
YSL – Rouge Volupte 1
My everyday go too. In my opinion YSL’s lip products are massively under rated. This is the most used lipstick I own. A your own lips but better shade, this goes with absolutely everything. It’s also super moisturising.
Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes. Especially if it’s going to end up an everyday essential in your makeup routine. The only down side is that it’s not the longest lasting. However you’ll feel like you’re living a life of luxury when you pull this baby out of your bag to re apply. Isn’t the packaging just beautiful?
YSL – Volupte Tint In Balm 11
Another YSL beauty. One of their newest releases, this is more of a balm. It offers a sheer layer of moisturising colour, that’s buildable and easy to wear.
Seeing the initial colour in the tube I was a little wary. I honestly didn’t think I’d get much use out of it. I’m so glad the colour applies sheer and can be customised to create the look you’re wishing to achieve. I love wearing this on days that I can’t be bothered with a full face of makeup. Its no makeup makeup down to a tea. Enough to stop my lips looking dull and dry. Not enough to coat my lips in colour. My lips look healthy, plump and moisturised. A favourite to chuck in my bag for the morning after any unexpected sleepovers 😉
Jouer Cosmetics – Lip Topper Frostbite
GLITTER IS EVERYWHERE !! And my lips are no exception. Unfortunately the picture doesn’t really do the product justice. (Note to self: maybe do swatches in future)
So this isn’t technically a lipstick. Although it can be worn alone. It’s actually designed as a lip topper. Lip toppers have been everywhere over the last few months and it’s not hard to see why they’re so popular. Apply your chosen lipstick as normal then swipe a coat of this glittery goodness over the top for that wow factor. Available in a wide variety of colours it can sometimes be a little hard to know what to choose.
This is my favourite because it’s exactly the shade I think of when I think sparkly lips. It goes with absolutely every lipstick you can think of. I have no idea how they get so much sparkle in one tube, but they do. If you can only afford to get one glitter lip topper, this is the one to go for.
I’ve just realised this post contains only high end items. Sorry loves. I have no doubt that there are some amazing drugstore lip products out there. It just so happens that none of them are my favourite.
Did any of your favourite lipsticks make my top 5 ??
My favourite place to buy high end makeup is debenhams. If you shop through quidco you can earn cashback on every purchase, not just here but at thousands of other retailers too. You can also earn £10 just for signing up. Check it out here*
