My Top 5 Lipsticks

lipsticks mentioned; Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté number 27/ / Rimmel Moisture Renew Soft Coral / MAC Rebel / MAC Shy Girl / MUA 'Shade 14' Bare

When it comes to lipsticks, I'm a bit of a hoarder, owning over 30 (which for me, is excessive). I tend to go through stages; I'm either obsessed with brights or will only go for nudes. At the moment I'm in a nudey stage and actually haven't worn a bright or dark lipsticks in a long time! Here are my 5 all time favourites, covering darks, brights and nudes. I tend to stear clear of reds these days - not too sure why, think my non-stop wearing it for 3 months on end may have put me off!

YSL Rouge Volupte no. 27 : this lipstick is so pretty and bright and nearly stains my lips completely. It's long wearing and gives an amazing vibrant sheen to the lips with a buttery texture. I'm dying to try out more of these; some of the nudes and pink shades are divine, they're just a little too pricey on a budget!

Rimmel Soft Coral : I love this muted coral shade, it's perfect for spring/summer and adds a hint of colour without being OTT. The only downside to this is it's slightly glittery texture which can be a little grainy on the lips; aside from that it's a lovely drugstore coral

MAC Rebel :  I reviewed rebel here after receiving it as a gift from my sister at last christmas. It is my all-time favourite dark lipstick, I don't feel the need to buy any other shades like this now as rebel ticks all the boxes for me; it's a gorgeous deep pinky purple that has a demi matte finish and last so well on the lips

MAC Shy Girl : I also reviewed Shy Girl here. It's a beautiful peach toned nude. It's really creamy and adds a nice sheen to the lips (as it's a cremesheen finish). I love it with a tan and in the summer months, perfect peachy nude.

MUA Bare : This has been a massive discovery for me. It was only £1 and is the nicest nude I've ever come across - it has a muted peachy tone which is so flattering on every skintone and a buttery consistency that isn't drying. The only downside is that it doesn't last ages, but you can't complain for a mere poun - I'd recommend it to everyone.
