This TAG just has my name written all over! Just can't get enough of lipsticks! Hope you guys enjoy reading!
1. Favourite balm/treatment?
This one I didn’t even have to think about. Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (fullreview here) without a shadow of doubt. I’ve been using this religiously for over a year now, and I just can’t even think of anything else. This is a permanent fixture on my side table for using overnight.
2. Best eye-catching red?
This is a hard one. I have probably over 10 red lipsticks (they’re all different shades of red, okay!). Having said that, the one that stands out the most and I receive the most compliments for is NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. It is the easiest to put on, and just is truly striking!
3. Best luxury & best drugstore?
Best luxury lipstick, I’d have to go with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in L’exuberante. It is vivid, bright pink with the perfect matte finish yet a moisturising formula. The packaging screams luxury like no other, the mirrored outer lid, to the clicking at the base of the lipstick to get the lipstick bullet – love! A true clutch appropriate lipstick!
Best drugstore lipstick would be Rimmel’s Kate Matte Lipstick in 107 (full review here). For high street, the formula is really moisturising although the finish is matte. The colour payoff is great too. Just can’t fault this!
4. Best MAC lipstick?
Being a lover of red lipsticks, it’d have to be Russian Red. Beautiful matte, classic red – need I say more?!
5. The most disappointing?
This was disappointing and quite saddening, solely because there was such hype about it. Revlon Matte Balm is probably one of the most hyped products
6. Liner - yes or no?
Yes, for when I’m wearing quite bright/dark colours. I love No7 lip liner in Fire for red lipsticks. Day to day though I don’t really wear lip liner as it adds another step to my routine.
7. Best gloss?
I don’t wear gloss, as I don’t like the sticky feeling, glitter/shimmer they have going on. I only have ever really owned one gloss/balm product, which in Clinique’s Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in Grapefruit. I love this because unlike normal glosses, it’s not sticky, doesn’t have chunky glitter, and actually moisturises my lips! The colour doesn’t really show up on my lips – so just a clear balm. I’ve had this for as long as I remember, and the tube is hygienic because I’m not sticking my fingers in a pot when I’m out and about.
8. Something extra!
A special mention to my YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge lipstick (full review here) as I have said before how much I love this. It’ll always hold a special place in my heart being my first red lipstick and first EVER lipstick!
