Hope your all well?
Sorry it's been a while but have had crazy writers block..
Not good !
So today I'm going to be writing about my favorite lipsticks which are all under £6.
I actually don't own any high end lipsticks simply because I think high street lipsticks are amazing quality so haven't really thought about changing that habit but I am pining after a YSL & MAC Lipstick for my birthday (heads up...)
I have 9 lipsticks here that are my general go to's,
but saying that I haven't been wearing red lips very much which is a surprise as usually they were the only color I would wear.
Guess my makeup style and taste is developing - woo.
So I decided to start with neutrals / pinks.
I don't wear many of these colors as personally I don't think they don't suit my skin tone and hair color...
Pinks tend to look way to 'Barbiefied' on me,and that isn't a look im gravitated towards personally.
But two light pinks I do like to wear occasionally are.
Pout - Avon £7.50
Now I know this is just over £6 but technically I haven't cheated as it was under that when I brought it..Eeek.
Anywho,This is a gorgeous creamy formulation.
It is your own lips but better type looking pink but it does have a peachy type color to it too.
101 - Kate Moss Matte Lipstick £5.49
I Love this shade. It is my only go to natural color.
For me this is just a tad darker then my own natural lip color when applied.
Just a heads up though,this looks a lot lighter in the tube then when it is actually applied.
I like to wear this underneath rimmel's appocalips in celestial for a extra pop.
And how could I forget these lipsticks smell sooo yummy!
MUA - Shade 14 £1
This is a gorgeous shimmery pink shade,generally way to pale for me.
But it really is pretty.
I love these MUA £1 Lipsticks considering there price they are so creamy and long lasting.
Defiantly worth checking them out!
Continuing with the £1 MUA Lipsticks I believe this is shade 3 I could be wrong though as I have misplaced this beauty..
I am sooo annoyed as this is the most beautiful autumnal color.
So if your looking to change up your autumn winter makeup then go have a look at MUA's counter and get this one.
So creamy and long lasting,the most gorgeous plumy purple.
But it is defiantly wearable.
Intimate - Avon Color Trend. £2.50 (Usually £3.75).
I adore this purple lipstick.
This is a very daring color and pretty true to the tube.
I wouldn't suggest this lipstick if you are new to purple colored lips,but if your brave give it a shot!
This is my favorite evening lip at the minute as it looks stunning teamed with smokey eyes!
Sugar Plum - Rimmel £4.99
But my absolute best autumnal lip is achieved from Rimmels Sugar Plum.
It is a gorgeous plum color with a hint of pink too it.
It is so wearable but such a gorgeous bright color.
This looks a tad more pink in the above photo but in true it is a lot more plum.
It has specks of sparkle so looks stunning on the lips.
Since I brought it I have wore it everyday!
This is a fuschia pink which leans more towards a dark lip then again 'barbiefied' color.
This is a lovely change to a red.
I used to wear red all the time and was scared to wear such a bright pink but its such a flattering color and is actually very wearable.
Again in person this product is a lot darker then it appears in the photo above.
This is a very creamy formulation but I do like to wear Soap & Glorys 'Punch Bowl' Mother Pucker gloss over the top if I want a more 'done up' make up look (plus it smells of chocolate - yum.)
110 - Lasting Finish Kate Moss Rimmel. £5.49
The well known beauty fave 110 By Kate Moss.
Last winter this was my go to red lip.
Like I say my color preferences have changed and I find this red to be a tad to 'orangey' for my liking.
But this is a great wearable red for everybody!
I also like to wear Maybellines Baby Lips in Cherry Me underneath this as I find it can sometimes be a tad drying on the lips.
This is an absolute classic red.
For the price the quality is amazing.
Its very long lasting but I would suggest a balm underneath if you prefer a shiner finish to your lips,but this is so classic!
I like to again wear Maybelline's baby lips in Cherry Me underneath this for a subtle red glossy tint before applying Poppy love.
01 - Kate Moss Lasting Finish Rimmel £5.49
My absolute go to red lip.
This is so rich it is stunning!
I love to wear this as a statement lip with a very simple winged eyeliner and flawless skin look.
It is creamy dark and just perfect for the autumn and winter months.
Everyone needs 01 in the lipstick collections.
I do like to wear Lip Rocks Gloss In Ruby over it for a real glamorous pop of color and drama.
So those are a few of my all time fave lippys,but I am hoping to do a 'AW13' Lipstick collection for those of you who want some help with finding the prefect autumnal shade.
Hope you enjoyed this.
