Lipstick and lots of them!
Its been a while since I last did a beauty post so thought it was about time we visit one of my favourite. I am completely unable to walk past a beauty counter without checking out the lippies, most of the time emerging from the shop looking like I have some kind of weird disease as my hand and arm resemble a painters pallet!
The thing is hubby will ask me why I needed another since it looks exactly like the last one I HAD TO HAVE but men just don’t get that subtle change in colour which makes it either a pink nude, brown nude and something in between! Don’t get me started on gloss or matte!
Ones I always come back to using are the Tanya Burr glosses, decent coverage, lovely smell and long lasting colour compared to some high street brands. The colours I have are Chic, Afternoon Tea and Just Peachy, I tend to use Chic most days as it is a soft pale brown/nude shade. I have also found these work really well as a light gloss by themselves or as a hint of colour and shine over the top of a more solid lipstick.
It has taken some time now but I have finally realised Matte lipstick is just not for me! It seems to make my lips look older and I need a little shine to make my (quite thin) lips stand out more, I do use the Liptiful enhancer which plumps them for an hour or so but its just not long lasting enough to make a difference long term. The mattes look great though coated with the Soap and Glory Mother Pucker lip gloss so as well as having shiny lips they are plumped a little too!
The mattes above are Bourjois no10 Dont Pink of It and Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in shades 05 Nude Flush and 50 Nude Thrill.
A couple of cheaper options I would highly recommend for colour and coverage are the W7 Mega Matte Lips in shades Sinful and Oddball. Thick and creamy with a no holds barred pop of colour these are great for the price!
As you can see in the pics I adore my Balmi to keep that pucker looking good, they are a little more expensive than typical tube lipbalms but seem to work so much more for me and this one has lasted forever! (The cute packaging is a bonus too!)
