My Six Favourite Lipsticks

May 10, 2012

In the past year I’ve found myself to be having quite an obsession with lipsticks. I never used to be a lipstick kinda girl, and now my collection is getting larger and larger. I now have around 25 lipsticks, but I found that there’s six I use more on a day to day basis. I’ve mentioned before that my ELF and my MAC ones are possibly my two favourite as their everyday pinky colours. But as you can see from the swatches I tend to stick to the same sort of colours!

Rimmel London is a make I’ve been a fan of since I can remember, so it’s no surprise that two of my favourite lipsticks are from them. Pink Blush and Nude Pink are two pretty similar colours, but Pink Blush is more of a pale pinky colour, while Nude Pink is more of a ‘my lips but better’ colour. Both lipsticks contain a bit of shimmer, but nothing too heavy. And as both lipsticks are from the lasting finish range both colours can last quite long on the lips. 17 is also a brand I’m quite a fan of, with two of my favourite lipsticks from their range being Honey Blossom and Beehive. Honey Blossom is one that I tend to wear on a night out as it’s from their lasting fix range, and I find it to last on the lips for ages! And if your hopeless at remembering to reapply your lipstick like me, it’s one for you! Beehive is from their mirror shine range,and is an everyday favourite for me as it just adds this perfect peachy pink shine to the lips, it’s not too colour heavy for everyday use. 

What are your favourite everyday lipsticks?
Do you play it safe with pinky/peachy colours like me?

    So similar to my fave shades, I've never tried the rimmel ones though. My faves are Mac Hue and Creme Cup for everyday .. pretty safe options! Oh and I love runway pink too by elf! xx


    These sort of shades are my go-to ones too, I love peachy pinks! I was never into lipstick until more recently either, but now I wonder how I ever lived without them.
