My Top 6 | Lipsticks

I never used to be one who wore lipstick on a regular basis, only if I was going out somewhere where I had to dress up more. Now I wear it every time I do my makeup and is something that completes a makeup look. I prefer coral/ orange and pink lipsticks. I find reds are too bold for me and I don't feel comfortable in them. I rarely wear nudes as well as I would rather just wear some lip gloss or lip balm.


Swatched in the same order as above

(Left to right)
Natural Collection Sheer Natural in Sand Castle: this is probably the closest I would get to a nude shade. I like this as it gives a shiny finish to the lips due to the small amount of silver shimmer. It's great for everyday wear and easy to apply as it is a very natural pink shade. 

Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Rose Bud: this is a really nice rose pink shade and can be built up to a stronger colour. It's very moisturising and doesn't dry out the lips. It has a slight golden shimmer to it as well.

Barry M in Pink Ribbon 153: a much brighter pink than the last two with a shiny finish. I love the colour of this and goes with my skin tone well. I wore this to a wedding and it stayed put throughout most the day too.

Topshop Lipstick in Confession: this is my most recent lipstick purchase and I found it at a Topshop store for only £4! It's a vibrant/ neon pink, which when I first saw it in the shop I thought it was an orange toned lipstick because of the little sticker, so when I got home and looked at the actual product I was a little disappointed. However, when I applied it it was such a gorgeous pink colour and lasted on my lips for a long time. It also has quite a fresh/ fruity smell to it which I like. This is my first Topshop lipstick and I am impressed!

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 12: this is a lovely coral colour that is probably more on the red side in the tube but more orange when applied on the lips. These lipsticks are really pigmented and apply really well.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti 015: one of my favourite lips products ever. I love the look of bright orange lips and in a lip butter form it's much more wearable on a day-to-day basis. This is definitely my favourite in the colour range.

I would also like to add a massive thank you to my 20 lovely followers and everyone who reads my posts! I never thought even 1 person would take the time out of their day to read my blog :) I am very grateful!! Thank you!

What's your favourite lipstick? I'm always on the hunt for more!
