Hello! Lipsticks may be my favourite bits of makeup at the moment due to the fact that they’re not season dependent. You can wear a bright pink in summer just as much as you can in winter, regardless of what trends are thrown out as soon as the temperature drops. So, here’s the roundup of what lip products have been in my makeup bag the most…
First up, we can’t avoid lip care. Lipstick never looks good over chapped, dry lips so using a scrub such as Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub is the first thing I do before slapping on some Korres Mango Lip Butter, resulting in a super smooth base to make sure everything goes on neatly.
Now, basics aside, onto the shades! I’ve been mixing it up a bit and picking tones from each colour category to use more of my collection. For pinks I’ve chose the brand new and utterly gorgeous Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick in shade Eccentrico 500*, which is just the most perfect bright shade. This is a new release from the designer and is ultra hydrating, yet pigmented and lasts all day. It comes in such an extensive colour range and the packaging is so lovely, there’s such a satisfying magnetic snap when you close the lid. Perfect
Another pink(ish, leans coral too) shade is from one of my favourite brands and the lipstick I said I had lost in my latest video (told you I’d find it!). Bobbi Brown Calypso has a lovely matte finish and such an intense colour pay off that it’s at the top of my list right now. It’s lasted a full shift at work without budging, so is well worth the pennies.
Of course, there had to be a berry tone as as much as MAC craving is my all time favourite, MAC media is a close second. It may be a bit dark for some, but if you want to get your mitts on a dark shade for winter, then this may be the one for you.
If your budget doesn’t stretch to the ‘high end’ lippies, then I can strongly recommend taking a look at Topshop. Topshop Lip Bullet in Heartbeat is a gorgeous warm orange tone and has great lasting power, which is wonderful for it being under £10!
So, those are all of the product I’ve been loving at the moment. They’re all fantastic and would recommend one as much as the next.
