I wanted to try something different from my previous posts and thought I would let you know what my top 4 lippies are! I should start off by saying I am obsessed with lipsticks and narrowing it down to 4 was sort of hard for me. Each of these lipsticks are different as I didn’t want to bore you with ones that looked too similar. I usually opt for , Oranges , plums and browns. I feel is suits my skin tone better when I wear them so these 4 lipsticks represent each shade!
I included swatches below and more information on each lipstick.
1. Estee Lauder Pure Color 48 Hot Kiss Shimmer: I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore this lipstick. I got this lipstick last year in an Estee Lauder gift set for Christmas, it’s a beautiful brown shimmer lipstick that leaves your lips feeling moisturized and hydrated throughout the day. I got three other lipsticks in the gift set which are all amazing quality and actually smell pretty good also! but this was by far my favourite. My lips just look so much more fuller when I wear this its amazing and I dread the day that it runs out!
2. Catrice Ultimate Colour 050 Princess Peach: Although I wouldn’t say this lipstick is a peach , I still love it because It was the exact colour I was looking for when I came across it. When applied to my lips it comes off as a neon orange which I adore when I’m fake tanning and I have a bronze glow to my face. I think this lipstick is perfect for spring and summer since it makes such an amazing statement alone . This lipstick is also on the moisturizing side ,it’s definitely not matte so anyone who wants that matte effect dab some concealer on your lips before you apply and VOILA! matte lipstick!
3. Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss 107: This lipstick has been on my collection for a few years now , I’ve been through 2 of them , that’s how much I love this colour. It’s a dark red berry colour and it can be built up to appear almost a deep purple, unlike the others this lipstick is matte and can be quite drying so I like to apply a balm before it and let it sink in so my lips don’t feel so dry when I wear it throughout the day There is no shimmer in it which I love , I’m not a fan of purples having shimmer in it as I feel its a little too dramatic for me personally since its such a deep colour already.
4.NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick 558 Cocoa: This has been a recent purchase for me , I went out on a whim and got the shade Cocoa thinking it might be a little too dark for my skin tone , but decided TO HECK! I will try it out anyways. ( you can tell I was in a daring mood that day haha ) I got home and put it on immediately and loved it , I was sooo surprised that it actually suited me since it’s a shade or two darker than my Estee Lauder lippie and I didn’t really think I could pull off a darker brown lipstick than that one! This lipstick is also a creamy moisturizing consistency and I find it a little hard to matte this one down so if you’re into the matte lipsticks you might want to try NYX’s matte lipstick range.
Thanks so much for reading guys its been super fun writing this post. I just realized I have a good few non matte lippies and didn’t really think I had that much I was always into the mattes so I sort of shocked myself a little when I realised that most of my collection aren’t matte haha I suppose you learn something new everyday!
