Another beauty related post for you lovely lot today as I figured you get quite a lot of outfit posts from me at the moment and not a lot else. I’m still trying to figure the whole blogging thing out, so if there’s anything you want to see more of on my blog please let me know!
Anyway, onto my ramblings for today! Lipsticks are an absolute makeup staple for me. I love drawing my lips on a little bigger than they are, and so a statement lip is a must have for all my outfits. I’m also a massive MAC addict, as you can probably tell from above considering all five of my favourite lipsticks are by them!
Going from left to right:
‘Saigon Summer’ – Mac
‘Candy Yum Yum’ – Mac
‘So Chaud’ – Mac
‘Honey Love’ – Mac
‘Mystical’ – Mac
Saigon Summer is my absolute favourite of all the lipsticks I own. I used to be totally guilty of sticking safe with nude shades and nice pale pinks (nothing wrong with that, but I wanted to experiment a little’ and I remembered seeing the gorgeous Lucy Watson from Made in Chelsea wearing a beautiful coral/orange shade on her lips in a lot of episodes and I figured with my pale skin and green eyes something similar would look nice on me too, so I was on a mission and Saigon Summer is the result. It’s a Creme Sheen lipstick, and therefore is very moisturising on the lips. It does come off quite easily when I eat, but if I’m just wearing it during the day it stays brilliantly.
Next up is Candy Yum Yum, a very recent acacquisition which you may have seen on my July haul video. This was pretty daring for me as I’ve never worn a neon shade before but it’s stunning on and really gives any outfit a real pop of colour. It’s going to look fabulous with all my summer outfits and I’m excited to wear it out more often! So Chaud is another staple lipstick of mine – red lipsticks have always terrified me and I’ve always thought I’m too pale to wear them until my friend told me that there is a shade of red for everyone, and this so happens to be mine! It’s an orange based shade and is really warm – it brings a lot of colour to my face and I just love it however it is quite drying on the lips as it is a matte finish lipstick.
Lastly, we come to my two favourite nude shades. Honey Love is my go to day-to-day lipstick for work. It looks amazing with every outfit and is almost a comfort to me as it’s just so familiar (is that weird?). I also fell in love with Mystical, one of MAC’s limited edition lipsticks from their recent collection. This colour is just absolutely gorgeous on, again it’s a very warm colour with the creme sheen finish and I’m going to get so much wear out of this for autumn and winter!
