My 5 Favourite Lipsticks - ft. Collection, MUA, Clinique


It's only fairly recently that I have begun to wear lipstick but in that time I have made some firm favourites. These favourites are based on colour rather than formula.



In order from left to right:

1. Collection Volume Sensation in 13 Satin Bow
I cannot get enough of this lipstick. It is a nude colour and an almost exact match for my natural lip colour, making it a great everyday lipstick. The colour is quite shiny on the lips and the naturalness of the shade makes it easy to apply and very forgiving.

2. Collection Lasting Colour in 2 Pink Shock
This colour is just amazing. The pink is so bright and vivid and stays in the lips for a long time, almost staining them. You can also dab this lipstick lightly onto the lips to make a more subtle look.

3. MUA Lipstick in Shade 14 Bare
I have to admit this is a very similar colour to Collection Satin Bow but is more matte. Also a great natural look, easy to apply and easy to wear.

4. MUA Lipstick in Shade 5
This is a really light, shimmery, frosty pink. Easy to wear and doesn't look messy on application. Very subtle and great for a girly look. 

5. Clinique High Impact in 17 Rosette 
Although this is a red lipstick, it doesn't have that bright, shocking red edge. This is a warmer red which makes it better with my skin tone. It's a lovely lipstick to apply and very hydrating on the lips. 

Do you have any of these lipsticks?
