so er, is it obvious that this should of been a valentines post? I liked the photos so I thought I'd post them anyway! These are a couple of my favourite red/pink lipsticks although I've just realized I should of included Nars Audacious in Fanny which is the best colour ever. A dark pink you could say. Such a shame you can't see my swatches eh?
my favourite lipstick ever is mac's ruby woo, I can't rave enough about it! I'd be devastated if they were ever to discontinue it, it's that if I could only ever wear one colour again it would be ruby woo kinda thing. I'm gonna stop gushing now we can move on to Nars Yu. Incredibly similar to Nars Schiap but a little darker and more of a blue tone. Smooth satin finish and glides on like a dream with serious staying power. Being a satin finish it's a bit nicer for your lips if like me you're wearing it for 10+ hours a time.
Now Barry M's Genie is a funny one, bit of a gimmick but if you like long lasting lipstick that you don't have to worry about when you're eating your ever so tricky to look ladylike whilst eating your chicken salad sandwich and is that lettuce hanging out of my mouth lipstick for you. It stains your lips, so FYI if you want natural lips the next day- you've been warned. It reacts with the PH levels in your lips so some days I find it's a really vibrant pink and others it's just a pinky tint. Cheap, cheerful and a bit of fun.
Nars Charlotte, another favourite. Nars' range of Audacious lipsticks are so worth that extra money. Creamy, deeply pigmented and long lasting. They have such a range of colours, Charlotte being a rich deep red with a slightly vampy tone to it. Great for autumn! Raquel is next on my list.
Clinque's Cherry Pop isn't something I would expect to like, it's definitely a satin finish, silky to apply and a rich red colour. It came free with a Glamour magazine a couple of months ago and when I want that more 'sophisticated' finish it ticks all the boxes. I'm not a Clinique fan at all but this is something I'd absolutely repurchase. According to the details it's got a inbuilt primer, perfect for a long day where you don't want dry lips as it's moisturizing as well. Good for those with dry skin or just after something a little sweeter for your lips!
What are your favourite lipsticks? I couldn't live without Mac's Ruby Woo as sad as it sounds!
