My Favourite Lipsticks

I believe you can tell a lot about a person from their lipstick. From bold reds, to subtle nudes… What colour do you like to wear? Here are my favourite lipsticks:

Clinique Chubby Stick
£17.50 from www.clinique.co.uk

I really like the Clinique Chubby Sticks. They claim to be a lip treatment with sheer colour that relieves dry, cracked lips and provides immediate moisturisation I fully agree with this claim as I find the texture is really lovely and they keep my lips soft and moist. They have a really good colour pay off too. You can apply these direct to your lips and due to the pointed end you can line your lips too, so no need for a lip liner which is a bonus. These are quite pricey at £17.50, but I have bought a couple of cheaper chubby style lip sticks and found they are really dry to put on and don’t apply evenly. There are two colours I use:

03: Mightiest Maraschino

 

red-chubby-final

This is a real intense red. Perfect for night outs. Colour lasts all night too.

 

07: Super Strawberry

strawberry-final

This is a nude pink colour. I wear this in the daytime or on a casual night out with friends. Again colour stays put for a long time.

 

MAC
£15.50 from www.maccosmetics.co.uk

I have lots of MAC lipsticks across a range of colours. I have narrowed it down to two for this post.

Lady Danger

This is my all time favourite lipstick. It is a Vivid bright coral-red shade. I wear this when I go for a night out. I like retro make up; bronze/gold eyes, black cat-flick eyeliner and red lips and I find this red is just perfect for the look. It is a bit of a cult favourite with many celebrities such as Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus favouring it. It has a matte finish but doesn’t dry my lips out. I have to wear a lip liner with this to keep it in place. The colour is very pigmented and it lasts all night.

 

Creme in your Coffee

This is a Creamy mid-tone pink brown crème sheen finish. It is a perfect shade for in the day or again a casual night out. It had a really moisturising texture that leaves my lips soft.

 

MUA
£1 from www.superdrug.com

Finally, this is a lipstick I have written a post about before (£1 AMAZING lipstick). This is a creamy moisturisng lipstick that comes in a range of shades. The shade I wear is no. 11. It is a pink/brown nude colour. Perfect for the day. It applies well. The best thing about this is it is only £1!!!

Here is a lipstick swatch:
