Lipsticks and lip products are a whole new arena for me, I don't know why but they had just never really appealed to me, and I had stuck with the same one for years. But in recent months I have somewhat broadened my horizon and tried out a few new lip products and I'm slowly trying out new shades. So here are my current top 5 lipsticks I've been loving over the past few months.
#5. Beauty Pie - In the Nude.
This is a warm toned brown with a satin finish, some may call it a "nude" but I'm not a massive fan of that term, mainly because I consider my nude to be something that looks like my own lip colour and this isn't it. But enough about "nude" politics, this is a lovely shade, and is really nice paired with a simple or smokey eye.
#4. Rosie Huntington-Whitely LOL
In my quest to try new shades, this blue toned pink-red is something I've had to grow to like and it's because it's something completely different to anything I've ever tried before. I was someone who thought I wouldn't suit a red tone but I actually really like this colour on me.
#3. MDM Flow - Bossy.
This is a lighter version of the Beauty Pie lipstick with a matte finish, it applies really smoothly and it's one I've been going back to more and more over the last few month.
#2. Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit - Pose.
You'll be noticing a theme with my lip colour choices... I've been liking brown tones. This is a more pink toned matte brown that literally doesn't move once you've put it on. Well after a while it does, but it has pretty good staying power and it's one of my most used among my collection. (The other lip kits shades are good too but this is my personal favourite)
#1. Kate Moss for Rimmel - Rosetto.
Remember when I said I had used the same lipstick shade for years. Well this is it. I have literally bought about 5 of these in the past few years and it's one I'll be repurchasing until they discontinue it's which if they do I'll probably cry. This is my version of a nude lipstick, or a "my lips but better".
So 5 lipsticks I've been loving. What shades are you loving right now?
