Morning lovelies! TGIF!!! My first week is over at my new full-time job for the summer (doing some admin work for a doctors surgery). It has been intense waking up at 6-6:30 am rather than 10 am every day. Spending all day being busy rather than be lazy and write blog posts whenever I fancied to. I’m trying my best to keep up with it all, even though I am writing this the night before it will be going live. At least it isn’t a couple minutes before it is going live haha.
You might have gathered recently my favourite go to lipstick is Mac Velvet Teddy. I wear it near enough every day. But on the days I’m not wearing it I usually reach for one of the following lipsticks. Out of my medium sized collection, these are my top 4 favourites lipsticks. So starting from left to right…
This is my OG lipstick. Ages ago bloggers constantly mentioned this lipstick, and they got me hooked on it. So much so that when I lost it, I instantly went out and bought another as I wore it so much. It is a perfect berry/plum shade (duhh) which can be buildable if you want a nice sheen or a full on lip colour. The consistency of this lipstick is perfect and usually lasts all day – it is a lustre. It does transfer so if you plan on eating (or having a smooch), bring it with you to top up afterwards. Lastly, this shade is perfect all year round but I love it most in Autumn!
As mentioned previously, this is my favourite lipstick currently. There used to be so much hype around this lipstick, everyone and their grandmas had it. I feel that for me this shade looks different on everyone, for me it is a perfect pinky nude, but even on my skin, it’s more orangey nude! I would recommend testing this out before purchasing – but I’m certain you’ll love it. The formula is matte and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. I really enjoy the consistency and it seems to last a long time and with it being quite nude, top ups aren’t always necessary.
I LOVE THE SMELL OF THIS! I swear its cocoa butter or something similar. If you are near a Kiko go and smell this range of lipsticks (then maybe buy one as you might look odd). The formula of this is lovely, it is so smooth and applies evenly over my lips. It is more pinky red and a bit more vibrant than the others and leaves a nice glossy sheen to my lips without being sticky. I usually grab this one when my eye makeup is simple just to add a bit of something something.
P.S the lipstick shade isn’t on the site anymore but you can still buy the same formula in a different colour so I still linked it for you.
This lipstick was solely purchased through Lily Pebbles constantly mentioning it. It looks so lovely on her and we don’t even have similar skin tone but I felt the desire to own this and I don’t regret it! This is the very close second to Velvet Teddy. The consistency is matte and I JUST LOVE IT. It is the perfect pink nude and gives my lips something extra without being too in your face. Mehr has blue undertones which make your teeth appear whiter (always a bonus, not complaining) and I will happily repurchase this gem.
So there you go, you now know my favourite lipsticks that are worn regularly on my lips. If I were to rank them it’d be 1= Velvet Teddy, 2= Mehr, 3= Plumful/913 (sorry no one can be a loser on my blog).
What are your favourite lipsticks? I’d love to know in the comments below.
