Being a self-confessed lipstick-acholic, I really wanted to share with you all the five lipsticks that I am currently obsessed with and with that the shades that I adore! You may find some summer inspired shades within this very small collection, although, believe me when I say that these are the lipsticks that I have been wearing relentlessly over the past couple of months!!
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick
Anyone who’s read my blog over the past few weeks (or follows me on Instagram) will know that I am currently head-over-heels OBSESSED with the new online exclusive, limited-edition shade that is called: The Duchess.
This lipstick is part of Charlotte’s legendary K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection. The formula is soft and smooth in texture yet moisturising on the lips, they have a somewhat glossy and shiny finish, although they are not a gloss as such. With an ultra-creamy, lightweight formula, the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks HAVE to be my all-time favourite out of every lipstick that Charlotte Tilbury currently creates.
The shade: The Duchess is the perfect essential for everyday wear in my opinion. With any soft and neutral-toned makeup look, this lipstick shade is going to complete what you having going on! With something a little more glam also, this lipstick is my all-time favourite shade choice to reach for – Yes, it is very versatile. Describing; The Duchess as a beautiful mauve-toned pink nude, I must tell you that I am obsessed with this lipstick at the moment and need to pick up a spare, replacement shade before Charlotte takes this away forever!
Only In Paris (112)
LÓréal Color Riche Shine Lipstick
With an ultra-smooth formulation, I must tell you that I have quite honestly never come across a drugstore lipstick like this one before. Having a richly pigmented formula too, it is fair to say that this lipstick effortlessly glides onto the lips. The consistency is smooth, soft yet creamy and almost melted butter-like!? It has a beautiful mirror-like shine finish, which I must say is incredibly elegant, although, this shine is definitely not a gloss nor tacky or sticky in texture.
The shade: Only in Paris is the perfect everyday summer shade in my opinion. With a light, almost coral-toned colouring, this lipstick pairs with any soft, neutral eye look perfectly. I am obsessed.
Rose Illicite (11)
YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain Liquid Lipstick
What can I say, a liquid lipstick HAD to be included in one way or another. I, personally love liquid lipsticks, although find the ultra-drying, matte finish to be a little bit of a turn-off. Luckily, this one by YSL, however, offers something a little bit different.
With a soft, smooth and very lightweight formula, this supposedly ‘matte stain’ leaves the lips with a beautiful veil of colouring. Drying down pretty rapidly too – although definitely still buildable – I must say that I do not find this lip product to dry my lips or make them appear all-that matte either now you come to mention it.
The shade: Rose Illicite is one that I could only describe as a beautiful dusky-toned pink with an ever so slight lilac undertone. The colouring is light and airy, although definitely pigmented. You can effortlessly build the intensity of this lip product up by applying further layers or wear something a little more subtle if you prefer.
Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipstick
One of the newer lipsticks that I am currently totally obsessed with HAS to be the Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipstick in the shade: 510.
This lipstick has a very moisturising and almost buttery texture, with a high shine luxurious finish, I just blooming adore how this product not only sits on my lips but also how it looks too.
The shade: 510 is one that I could only really describe as being a very beautiful, mauve-toned pink-red. The formula is richly saturated and gorgeously pigmented, although definitely workable and buildable too. You can blot this lipstick for a slightly subtle look OR happily go to town and really apply this well, for an intense and deep, smooth veil of colouring. Giorgio Armani did good here.
Buxom Cosmetics Bold Gel Lipstick
Last but by no means least we have the lipstick that could only be described as my all-time favourite, and yes, that is a blooming HUGE statement…
I could happily turn to this lipstick shade and formulation each and every day if I had too. Although, definitely enjoy testing out and wearing different lipsticks, which is why this one isn’t worn perhaps as much as I would like too. The gel-like formula effortlessly glides onto the lips – AND guys, I mean effortlessly. The consistency is lightweight, ultra-smooth and just gorgeous. I feel like I am literally applying a liquid-like melted veil onto my lips when using this lipstick, it is heavenly, to say the least.
The shade: Rebel Rose has to play a massive part in my love for this product because this is the only shade out of all of the Buxom lipsticks that I own, that I turn too relentlessly. It is a gorgeous mauve, although delightfully soft and nude based pink, with an elegant glossy luxe shine finish, I just honestly adore this lipstick in every sense possible.
