My Favourite Lipsticks

I've only started wearing lipsticks in the past two years or so, as I never had the confidence to wear them before! During this time I've built up a small collection of lipsticks and I thought I'd write about my favourites for you all.

Ultimate Favourite - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry

This is my go-to lipstick for a night out. I love the slightly vamp-ish colour as it fits well with my usual style. It lasts well on the lips and I usually only need to re-apply once on a night out. It's moisturising too, and has quite a shiny finish as it's a creme formulation.

Favourite Red - Model's Own in Scarlett

This is a nice bright red which can look really dramatic. I don't actually wear a true red too often because it is really bold and I get a bit self-conscious sometimes, but I should just push myself because it does look really nice on!

Favourite Coral - MeMeMe Long Wear Satin Lip Cream in Tuscan Red

I'm going to start using this bright coral much more over the summer as it'll look really nice with a summer wardrobe. This would be an ideal lipstick to take on holiday, and it's really moisturising, thanks to the added Shea Butter and Vitamin E, which is always a benefit in hot weather.

Favourite Matte - Kate Moss x Rimmel Lasting Finish in 107

I had my eye on this product as soon as the Kate Moss for Rimmel range of matte lipsticks was announced, and it must have been the most popular as it was constantly sold out! I finally managed to get a hold of it just before Christmas and I love it. I'm a huge fan of matte lips and this dark red shade is perfect - so glamorous!

Favourite 'Something Different' - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Va Va Violet

This isn't exactly a traditional lipstick shade but it's surprisingly wearable. It can look a little scary in the tube but it actually looks very nice on. Again, it's a bit of a vampy shade, which I really like. It does take quite a few coats to get a nice, deep colour, though. Maybe it's meant to be more of a sheer colour because of the slightly daring shade but I prefer it to be a dark purple.

I'm really going to try and wear lipsticks a lot more often as I love these shades and this post has made me want to put one on right now!

What are your favourite lipsticks? Have you tried any of these?

Side note: no Week in Photos this week as I've mostly just been studying!
