There comes a time when a girl just has to buy some lipstick. I can’t remember the last time I bought a lipstick let alone a MAC lipstick (thinking back I think it was Creme Cup that I bought all the way back in February 2012!!) My streak of being good and not buying anymore MAC lipsticks was coming to an end and I was feeling the need to splurge. This need was also not helped by some lipsticks making into some certain bloggers favourites posts and looking utterly beautiful meaning I just had to snap them up. Therefore this post is all about those lip adorning beauties and also which bloggers their recommendations came from.
Plumful is the perfect lipstick if you want a bit of colour on your lips but don’t want to be too daring. It is a lustre finish which means that it is slightly sheerer then other lipsticks but that’s what makes it so perfect to pop on your lips! I love the subtle boldness to this colour. It packs the punch yet looks so natural. I have been reaching for this pretty much everyday since getting it and love how you can wear it with anything! Lily has featured this lipstick in a few of her recent videos and every time I see it I am reminded why I dashed out to pick it up. My first step into MAC lipsticks was in the anything nude category but this lipstick is a great breakaway and gets you venturing into the bolder aspects of life.
Hands up who else watched Estée’s 2012 December Favourites and rushed out to buy this? *places hand firmly in the air!* I have been venturing more into the land of the big, bold and beautiful when it comes to lipsticks recently as it’s a great way to finish up or enhance your look without having to slap on loads of makeup. This lipstick is exactly what it says – a brick red with more of a dark undertone then your standard red lipstick. The is an amplified formula so it does pack alota colour, but as the lipstick is of a darker tone it doesn’t look too bright or ‘in your face’ on your lips. This is a really unique colour that you don’t need to think too much about when applying however ever time I do I am reminded by how beautiful it is.
After watching Anna’s ‘Super Simple Red Lip Tutorial’ this lipstick quickly winged it’s way onto my ‘Must Have’ list. I have a couple of red lipsticks already in my little stash however what I liked about this one was the brightness it had in colour and it’s orange undertones. The Matte Kate Moss range for Rimmel bypassed my beady eyes and what a shame is did as this is an absolute beaut! It was my New Year’s Eve lipstick of choice and it’s slight coral redness is a keeper.
