My Small But Growing Lipstick Favourites...


I Really can't say that I'm the biggest user of lipsticks, and I often gravitate to a bit more of a 'gloss n' go' routine, but this doesn't mean I don't own and have favourites and of course, end up leaving boots without a billion swatches of lipsticks in shades I'm not near brave enough to try swatched up and down both arms...
As you can maybe see from the image about I'm a bit of a high end make-up fiend, I'm so attracted to the whole experience really, the lure of the beautiful  packaging, the counter ladies and their ever so perfect (but sometimes a little overdone) make-up, the multitude of choices, it really is a tailored-to-you shopping experience..A little sad for some, but for me I'd choose the experience of 'High-end' beauty shopping any day! 

And in no particular order - My favourites. 


Chanel -Rouge Allure - 217 Radieuse

This is one of those 'your lips but better' shades - very sheer giving a slight pink glow to the lips.

Mac - Pink Plaid - Matte

This is a lovely matte pink shade that is very build-able to create a more intense shade if that is the look that you're wanting to achieve. I prefer more of a subtle sweep of colour so with just one application it creates the perfect amount of pink for me!



Mac - Rebel - Satin

This was the outcome of my first ever Mac visit over 4 years ago, and I still love the it! As you can probably tell its a little different in comparison to the other lipsticks I own but this one is such a lovely shade. Again its very build-able and is my go to Winter lipstick.



Mac - Honeylove - Matte

I'm so in love with this shade, and looks so beautiful matched with a cream lipgloss. 

Clarins - 121 Rouge Prodige

My favourite red shade. it claims to be a long-lasting lipstick but I don't agree with the statement at all, it comes off like no ones business, I've had it on my teeth, clothes and even my leg!..I mean maybe that's a little harsh it is a great product that is semi-matte and has a lovely vanilla scent to it - I'm a sucker for sweet smelling lipsticks. 



What are you favourites? do you have any recommendations for me to try?


Until next time....

  3. I recently started to grow my lipsticks collection too but I love how you have a greater range of colors. I also realized my Maybelline baby lips in pink punch color looks like a great dupe for the Chanel Rouge Allure 217 Radieuse.

  6. I'm the same, so funny! I love lipstick but end up wearing gloss more coz it's easier and I can kiss my man lol! Otherwise he gets all "pink'd-up"!

    But when I have an activity/event I looooove my Bobbi Brown lipstick in coral, the matte finish one, you must muts try it and get the little brush coz it's definition when putting it on makes a difference, it's my n.1!!

  11. While I prefer the coverage of a lipstick, they tend to dry out my lips so I gravitate towards gloss. Though I'd really like a bold coral for the summer!
