My Favourite Lipsticks

One thing I always treat myself to when I'm out shopping is a new lipstick. I seem to carry so many around with me. I'm forever emptying out my bag and finding a good 7 or 8 in there!

I've never been much of a lipgloss fan due to most of them being really sticky. I hate when the wind blows and your hair gets stuck to your lips! I love how a good lipstick can transform a look so easily.

Here are  a few of my favourites...



 MAC Creme D'Nude -This is my go-to lipstick. It's my perfect nude. It's so wearable, really creamy and works brilliantly with a smokey eye for nights out or with a soft shimmery eye for the daytime. I've gone through about 3 of these and i'll continue to keep repurchasing I'm sure!

MAC Ever Hip -I'm a sucker for nice packaging and I had to by a lipstick with this Spring like pattern all over it. I chose a colour I knew I would get a lot of wear out of. It's a subtle coral colour and pefect to just add a bit of colour to your lips.

NYX India is a a pastel pink which is quite bright, my make up has to be fairly minimal to pull this off. I'm not overwhelmed by the texture of it, if my lips are dry it does show every crack and has to be applied carefully but I love the colour.

MAC Vegas Volt was recommended to me by a make up artist when I was wearing the coral shoes in this post. I love it. It's such a bright coral and perfect for day and night.


A bright red is a must. My favourite is Flirt Alert by Benefit. The staying power is excellent and it's such a nice red, perfect for the 50's pin-up look.

When the Mac Disney Villans range came out I knew I had to purchase something. MAC Amplified Violetta was a colour I've never normally try but when I put it on I had to have it. It's a bonus that it has Sleeping Beauty themed packaging!

Everyone has heard the hype behind Kate Moss 107. I saw it mentioned so many times and the more I saw it the more I knew I had to have it. It's a gorgeous deep red lipstick which I finally bought around Valentines day as it just seemed fitting for the occasion!

That's just a few of my favourites and I'm sure theres so many more to come!
