| A few years ago I barely wore lipstick unless it was for an occasion but the past few years my collection has grown and I now wear it everyday. I have tried many formulas and colours but there are six that I wear all the time. I love finding that perfect lipstick formula and of course the perfect shade. I don’t like matte lipsticks that much as I find 90% of them extremely buying but there is the odd one I do like. I have a mixture of matte, semi-matte, cream, satin and gloss in my most used lipsticks so there is something for everyone.
NARS Velvet Lip Glide “Stripped” | £23.00 | Link
This is a product I wanted as soon as it was released but this shade was forever sold out. I finally picked it up back in early December and I have become obsessed. It is a gloss but not like a usual gloss formula. It has more of a mousse texture and feels incredibly soft. I haven’t tried a product like this before. This shade is your lips but better kind of a shade.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss “Cookie Butter” | £6.00 | Link
I do like the original butter glosses but these Intense ones are incredible. They are much more pigmented than the others and not as sticky. This shade has become my go to. It is a cool toned nude which works well on it’s own or applied on top of a lipstick.
The Lippie Stix are one of my favourite products from ColourPop. They have a wide range of finishes but this is a creme finish that has a gorgeous shine to it. The shade is quite pink which I don’t usually go for but I just love how this looks. You can see a lip swatch in my ColourPop Lippie Stix Collection Post.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick “Honey Beige” | £6.99 | Link
I have never ever finished a lipstick but look how close I am with this one! I have just re purchased a backup. This is the shade I will wear most days for work. It is a lovely cream finish with a nude shade. It goes with most makeup looks. I even wear this on those no makeup, makeup days. I also love the shade Tantalizing Taupe but I lost it so I have just re purchased that one too.
MAC Lustre Lipstick “Syrup” | £17.50 | Link
I have had this lipstick quite a while but have used around half of it. This shade is so different to anything I own. It is a plum shade but a little more vibrant, not a dull/dark plum. I especially love to use this in Spring.
I have been obsessed with the formula of these lipsticks since the beginning of last summer. I don’t think they should be called matte as it is more of a semi-matte with a mousse texture. I find them extremely comfortable to wear. I have three shades from the nude collection, this being the palest. I just adore them. If you don’t like matte liquid lipsticks 100% try these. See lip swatches of all 3 shades I have in my full review here.
Stila Liquid Lipstick “Perla” | £16.00 | Link
Now these do dry matte but I don’t find the formula drying at all. I suffer with dry lips and these don’t exaggerate them or make them worse. They have a sweet vanilla scent and apply well. This shade is perfect for any skin tone, it is a light mauve. I need to pick up a full size as I have ran out of this size!
