Although I adore all aspects of Make Up, my absolute must have item would be Lipstick, I am absolutely obsessed! So as you can probably guess, this post will be all about my latest buys, you guessed it, Lipsticks!
Besides the eyes, I think the lips are an essential part of any make up and although I do love the vintage look, I like to mix it up every now and then! My other favourite shades to wear would be peachy corals and nudes.
So last week I ended up buying three new Lipsticks and one Lip Pencil, what can I say? I think I’m a bit out of control. However, two of my lipsticks ended up being free because of the wonder that is a Boots Saving Card.
Originally, I only intended to buy one Lipstick, well Lip Pencil and that was Soar from Mac. Ever since Kylie Jenner’s lips became a phenomenon everyone has been obsessed with what colour she wears and it just so happens that Soar is one of them. Naturally, because of this I was not expecting it to be in stock, however, I was in luck! The great thing about Mac Lip Pencil’s is that they’re so strong and stay put all day, you can even wear them without a lipstick! Therefore that’s what I’ve done today, The pencil is a dream to apply on your lips, it’s soft and has a matte finish, so you don’t need to apply again, it should last all day. Overall I love this colour, it’s a bold nudeish pink and something a bit different than a normal pink or nude, I’d definitely recommend! It’s my favourite MAC Lip Pencil that I have so far, I also really liked Whirl but I think I made the right choice.
While I was in MAC, I naturally decided to look at the other Lipsticks and came across one that I’ve had on my wishlist for quite a while, it’s called Please Me. As I’ve said before, although I love the colour pink, I don’t really like to wear it that often as I don’t think it suits me all that well. This shade however is not a strong bold pink, it’s subtle and a matte finish, my favourite finish for MAC Lipsticks. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did, it’s almost like a nude pink and I just think it’s a lovely colour. Who knows, maybe it will inspire me to wear more pink?!
Lastly, I decided to check out Rimmel’s new Kate Moss Nude Collection. As I’ve said before, I think because of my love for the 1960s and stars such as Brigitte Bardot and Sharon Tate, I’ve really been enjoying Nude Lipsticks lately. When I was younger I used to wear one by MAC called Myth all of the time, however I then moved on to more bold shades such as reds. There were three shades and after trying all of the colours on my hand, I found that I liked colour 45 the most. When I first applied it I felt that it was way too understated for my liking, however, all it took was a few more layers and the shade really grew on me! It’s not a lipstick colour I have in my collection, but I’m definitely glad I have one now. I guess when I wear this shade I may apply heavier eye make up to contrast with my lips.
I’ve bought many Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks before and it just so happened that Boots were having a Buy One Get One Half Price offer! I looked at there other colours and came across her Lasting Finish Collection, straight away a red lipstick caught my eye, number 110. As you can probably guess, I have a lot of red lipsticks, however you’d be surprised how many different shades you can get in red! I really love this colour as it’s not too bold like many of my other lipsticks, it’s a warm tone and a nice change from the cold classic shades I usually go for.
