Let’s Talk: My Favourite Lipsticks

Let’s Talk: My Favourite Lipsticks

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…

favourite lipsticks

Mac | Plumful

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!

Mac | Velvet Teddy

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.


Swatches of lipsticks

L-R : Mac Plumful, Mac Velvet Teddy, Kiko 913, Mac Mehr

Kiko | 913

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. 

Mac | Mehr

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.

    Congrats on getting through the first week at your new job! They all are such beaut shades, I love a good Mac lipstick and I really need to crack out Velvet Teddy again but i’m scared to as I only have a little bit of it left. I’ll be really sad when it runs out. Mehr has really caught my eye, any lipstick that makes teeth look whiter is a god send xx

    Such great picks! I love velvet teddy, plumful and merh too but I’ve been neglecting my Mac lipsticks lately as I just love liquid lipsticks atm. I really need to try some bits from Kiko though as I keep hearing such great things! Lovely post.

      I don’t own any liquid lipsticks, I really should seeing as the craze has been around for quite some time now. I will probably end up neglecting my Mac lipsticks as well, haha. Thank you x

    Velvet Teddy is such a trusty favourite for so many people and rightly so, such a gorgeous colour! I absolutely love the Kiko shade but I find their lipsticks smudge so easily on me 🙁 really gonna have to try Plumful aswell as it looks perfect for Autumn!

      Shame to hear that about Kiko, I know they have different types of lipsticks so maybe give them another go? x

  11. 14th July 2017 / 11:26 pm

    So i’m feeling that you like a mac lips??? 😂😂
    Velvet teddy is the next one on my list!! I LOVE Hot Tahiti from Mac! And Twig!!
    I’ve been really loving Rimmel nudes lately to, I find they are a little more moist…

    • covetluxe
      17th July 2017 / 12:56 pm

    I’m very glad it’s the weekend too! I adore Velvet Teddy and Plumful, they’re staples in my collection! I’ll have to try Mehr and the Kiko shade, they look amazing! Xx

  13. 15th July 2017 / 10:40 am

    Velvet teddy is one of my favs too! Haven’t worn it in ages though so this reminds me to pull it out! I really want to try Mehr, it’s been on my list for ages!
    My all time favourite lipstick is Charlotte Tilburys Pillow Talk! I have not found a lipstick more beautiful or comfortable, you should definitely give it a go!

        I believe its a European brand, maybe one day they’ll make it over! They’re very affordable but still great quality x

      Do it! They have a sale on at the moment, so best time to try them out! x
