Beauty | Top 5 Lipsticks

Today's post is all about my favourite lipsticks. I'm going to be picking one from each categorised shade that I can think of and then recommending my favourite from each one. I hope you enjoy!


L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Exclusive Nudes in Eva Longoria's Shade - This lipstick is quickly becoming one of my favourites out of my entire collection. It has a creamy, moisturising formula that means it will apply effortlessly across the lips, whilst still allowing your lips to appear healthy. As far as the shade goes, it's the perfect nude that would compliment any skin tone beautifully.

Mac Lipstick in Bombshell - Underrated would be the word that I would use when describing this next lipstick. I don't think that I have ever heard anybody talk about it in the blogging and YouTube world, which baffles me immensely. It is genuinely such a stunning colour and it deserves to be recognised and raved about so much more than it currently is. This particular shade is a 'frost' finish, meaning that there are frosted shimmers embedded within the bullet. The shimmer isn't too noticeable when on the lips, but it just adds a little something to the appearance of it. When I'm wearing a pink lipstick, it is most likely this one, as I find it goes with absolutely everything and once again, it can compliment any skin colour, making it versatile enough for everyone.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate Moss in '16' - Seeing as we are heading into the warmer months now, I thought it was an appropriate choice if I added in a coral colour. If you are going on holiday this summer, or the sun decides to make an appearance, then I think this would be the perfect pick for you. I wore it a couple of times last year and I will be wearing it more this year, as it is literally the ideal coral. It's not too bright and in your face, but it's not dull and drying either. It's not necessarily moisturising, but it doesn't make my lips chapped, or flaky, which is always important for those hotter days. Overall, it just adds a pop to your outfit and it can look particularly flattering in spring and summer.

Mac Lipstick in Ruby Woo - I can't even begin to explain how hyped this lipstick is in the beauty community. I'm pretty sure that most people, if not the vast majority have got this in their collection. It's a favourite amongst everyone from makeup artists to average adults. I haven't had an event where it has been appropriate to wear this shade yet, but I will definitely be using it as soon as I get the chance to. I think that it would be perfect for a more formal occasion, such as dinner, or a work event. Since applying it for the first time as a tester when I got it for my birthday, I noticed that it is very matte, which I think is perfect for such a bold colour, as this means that it will stay on for longer and it shouldn't budge. Even though I said that it would be perfect for a formal occasion, you can certainly tone it down for a more informal occasion.
Topshop Lipstick in Fast Lane - This Topshop lipstick would be the perfect option for an autumn/winter shade. I know we have gone past those seasons now, but I thought that I would still include this anyway. It's the only purple lipstick I own and it's quite vampy and bold, but trust me, it is perfectly wearable and it does actually look really lovely as long as you don't go too bold, or heavy. It's reasonably moisturising and it just gives a lightweight sheen to the lips for those colder months.
Runners Up:
Soap & Glory Lipstick in The Missing Pink - I would class this lipstick as more of a brownish beige, but I'm going to put it in the nude category. In my opinion, it is a suitable 'my lips but better' shade, as it just adds a little something to the lips rather than them being completely bland and colourless with no product on at all. I think it would suit paler skin tones, as it can wash you out, or make you look a bit pasty, but I just think it's a decent, easy to wear shade that you can't really go wrong with, so I thought I'd add it as a runner up, because it didn't quite make it to my top favourite.
Topshop Lipstick in Brighton Rock - As I mentioned when talking about the Rimmel lipstick, the weather is going too be getting warmer now and many of you may be going away on summer holidays, so this lipstick would be particularly loved around this time of year. Many people have raved about it, including the likes of Zoella, so I can assure you that it is well worth the purchase! It adds a pop to any outfit and it can also really brighten up your face as it will draw attention and can make people in a happier mood too, like the warm weather can! I shall definitely be taking this with me in my travel makeup bag when I go on holiday in August. It isn't drying and it doesn't apply too heavily either. A quick swipe across the lips will add a gorgeous hint of colour, whilst keeping your lips moisturised, so you're on trend and your lips will be looking smooth and supple! What more could you ask for? 

Let me know what you think of this new beauty series idea, and tell me what category you would like me to discuss next! Have you tried any of these products? What do you recommend?
