On a long bank holiday weekend that last thing you want to do is be fussing and faffing over your makeup collection. Yes, you finally have some time on your hands to nail that perfect contoured look, however instead my diary is filled with plans of naps, Netflix, mini eggs and more naps. Anyone else with me?! If you too are indulging in a more paired back and relaxed long weekend I thought I would showcase some of my favourite fuss free lipsticks. You know the ones, lippies you can apply without a mirror or liner that you throw into your bag and end up collecting 12 of by the time it comes to the end of the week. And shock, they all fall into the soft light pink nude spectrum ;)
Super Fuss Free – when it comes to a lipstick that doesn’t require much thought or preparation it’s got to be the Clinique Chubby Stick. Not only is the packaging suited to a fuss free approach, the shade 06 Woppin’ Watermelon first in the lineup just matches your lips leaving a hint of colour behind that doesn’t bleed outside your lips throughout the day.
Budget – one of my HG drugstore lipsticks has to be the L’Oreal Color Riche in Julianne’s Nude. Not only am I obsessed with the smell, you can see from the impressive dent in the bullet that this gets a lotta love. Second up in the lineup you get a softer shade that packs a bit less colour however brings more hydration making it great for when your lips aren’t in the most perfect condition.
With a bit of gloss – if I’m not using the L’Oreal lippy then it will be the MAC Cremesheen in Peach Blossom that I throw into my bag. You would have seen this in my Top Mac Lipsticks video that you can see here as it’s natural kiss of colour to the lips with that subtle hint of shine making it super wearable day to day.
Fuss Free Colour – sometimes you want your fuss free colour to pack a little more of a punch. I’m not talking a bold bright red over here but maybe a stronger pigment to take a look from daytime to drinks after work. After clearing through my lipstick draws I rediscovered the Revlon Lip Butters anyone remember them?! Especially the shade 090 Sweet Tart. Awful name however fab bold colour that is moisturising, blends on a dream and works without a primer or a liner.
What are your favourite fuss free lipsticks to rock on the daily and throw into your bag?
