I’ve got another week in lipsticks for you today, to show you what I’ve been loving lately.
The Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Rosy Chic is pretty much the only pink lipstick I own. Pink has never really been my thing; generally I’m more for reds or warm-toned nudes, but the creamy, highly pigmented formula is fab.
The Urban Decay Vice Cream Lipstick in Gash was my first purchase from Urban Decay’s new Vice range, and is a deeper colour than what I would usually reach for. I am definitely on the pale side of skintones (I literally reflect light like the moon) and this is definitely quite a statement when I wear it. My Nan maintains that it’s too dark for me, but I like how I look in it and I don’t really care if it doesn’t “suit” me.
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Nougat is my favouriteevery day nude, and is what I throw on when I can’t be bother thinking about my makeup. It goes with everything and is super moisturising, to the extent that it basically functions as a lip balm.
This Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina is a damn good liquid lipstick that I’ve talked about in detail before, comparing it with other liquid lipsticks. If you get get past the really sweet vanilla smell it’s a great lipstick that isn’t too drying and is very opaque.
This Urban Decay Vice Comfort Matte Lipstick in Temper was a Christmas gift and I absolutely adore it. I’m all about an orangey-red lip, and it really is a comfort matte, being easily wearable for a full day.
I received MAC Patent Polish in Clever in a beauty box last year, and it’s a shade I can’t seem to find anywhere, but it’s a warm pinky-nude that is very wearable. The Patent Polishes are a glossy stick formula of the type you can apply without a mirror, applying a wash of colour to the lips and lots of moisture.
Does anyone else really struggle with the MAC website? I can’t seem to find this lipstick anywhere so have linked to Makeup Alley, but the MAC Satin Lipstick in RED is a damn good lippie. In the bullet it looks like a true red, but on the lips it’s a lot more pinkish in tone. It’s a satin finish, but still lasts as if it were a matte. It’s cooler toned than most of my lipsticks, but every now and then I get the urge to wear this.
