My Favorite Lipsticks Right Now


I have never been a big fan of lipstick, i always preferred glosses hands down as i found lipsticks seemed to dry out my lips and as a dry lip sufferer this was not good for me. Ever since joining the beauty community online i discovered a new love for lippies. Seeing all these amazing lipsticks everyone was raving about i had to start trying them out (especially MAC).

Here are my favorites at the moment:
First up...


My MAC Gaga Viva Glam lipstick, the colour is so pretty! Lustre's are my favorite from M.A.C as they make my lips feel moisturised and leave a glossier finish. I usually only put a few quick swipes on, just to leave a subtle pink as when it's applied with a full coverage it can be very vibrant! The blue undertones really set it off. Honestly, if it didn't have Gaga written on it i probably wouldn't have touched it as i never would have thought the colour would suit me, but i'm so glad i did! It just shows :)

RRP: £12.50

Second...


Another M.A.C Lustre in 'Pretty Please'. This is my most recent purchase. After spending ages in Selfridges with my friend Sara, swatching our hands until they were covered i decided on this beauty. It has purple undertones with gold shimmer. A more nude pink, i think it really suits my colouring. Love it!

RRP: £12.50

Last up...

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 'Pink Pearl' is so pretty, i really love this pink. It really does have a lovely pearl effect to it. A tad more drying than the other two, but with a bit of Vaseline underneath it looks fab.

RRP: £6.99

I would love to see your fav lipsticks, let me know if you have or do a post :)

  6. If you love Viva Glam Gaga shade of MAC lipstick, you might like the MAC shade called Snob. It's pretty close, and it'll be an easy one to get, once the beloved Gaga shade is no longer available. I do have both, and they're very similar...Snob may have just a little more of a blue undertone.

  22. When I was just a teenager my mom would ask my why don't I wear makeup. My response would always be, why do I need makeup? I am a fair skin blonde hair green eyed girl. Putting on makeup for me, was such a task. I didn't know the first thing about what my colors were. Oh, to make things more difficult for me my lips were full lips. For my face my lips were already noticeable. I would grab the most translucent colors I could find. Such as, your favorite colors to wear the pale pinks and shimmer pinks, with pressed powder compact foundation. About the only dark colors I would wear were my black eyeliner and brow pencil. so my eyes would stand out and overtake the attention. I would love to know what your choices of cosmetics were when you were a teenager.
