Lipstick Loving

I found this post while clicking through Bonjour Luce’s blog and as a lipstick addict myself, I thought I might as well fill it out aswell.

Favourite Balm or Treatment?
The only “treatment” I ever use is the Lush Lip Scrub as well as Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, they glide on smoothly and are almost lipstick-like as in they give your lips a full colour while still moisturizing your lips. Passion and Tulip are my two favourite colours from the range!

Best Eye Catching Red Bright?
I have three favourite reds, the first being a Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet because I am obsessed with matte colours recently and this one doesn`t dry out your lips and lasts all day. For a cheaper alternative I really enjoy NYX Extra Creamy Lipstick in Eros and Stila Afterglow Lip Color in Tangerine Dream.

Favourite Pink Lipstick?
My favorite pink is a toss up between NYX Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo which I actually think I could wear everyday for the rest of my life but I also love Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive they’re both affordable and are the perfect lipsticks if you’re looking for a great natural matte shade.

Best MAC Lipstick?
I’m just getting back onto the MAC bandwagon but recently I’ve been loving their Cremesheen Lipstick in Coral Bliss, its the perfect shade for when you’ve already done alot with your eyes and want just a hint of colour. Its the right amount of sheer, but still pigmented enough that it looks like you’ve put a gloss on.

Favourite Nude Lipstick?
This has been my favorite nude shade for about 3 years, and I’m only now getting to the bottom of the stick. It is Sephora Rouge Shine in Tenderness (#3). It isn’t the most long lasting lipstick but it also is so light and almost feels as if you’re only wearing a lipgloss with the stickiness. If you haven’t tried out the Sephora Rouge Shine line, it is a must!

Best Luxury Lipstick?
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte  – Silk Sensual in Opera Rose. I think the name speaks for itself.

Favourite Gloss?
My favorite Gloss’ would be MAC glass as well as the Stila Lipglaze although extremely sticky they add alot of colour to your lips without using alot of product.

Favourite Spring/Summer Shades?
My favorite summer shades range from corals/nudes to natural/bright pinks. My two favorites this summer were Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in Nectar and NYX Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa.

Favourite Autumn/Winter Shades?
As the weather gets colder I usually reach for natural nudes and deep purples aswell as orangey reds. My favorite purple at the moment would be Stila Afterglow Lip Color in Festive Fuschia. For a more fall appropriate orange red I used Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Pink Blossom.

Lip liner?
Lip liner is a big thing in my lip routine. I love the way it can brighten or soften any lip colour! I usually reach for a cheaper alternative only because they don’t last long in my drawer. Annabelle Lip Liner in Buff is my absolute for favorite for any nude/pink lipstick.

  1. I have the Revlon matte lippy in Elusive as well and have been loving it. Do you have trouble applying it as well? Sometimes it’s a struggle to get it smooth!

  2. LOVE the lip Sugar treatment! It’s a MUST especially with the season changing! I haven’t tried the one from Lush, but I love their products so I will be all over that! Thanks for the recommendation!
