Three Lipstick Must-Have's

MAC’s lipstick in Snob has been one of my favourites for quite a while now! This colour is a cool toned light pink and compliments practically any makeup look so I always tend to grab it when I’m in a rush. Snob has a matte finish with a satin sheen-which is perfect for me as I find matte finishes can be sometimes drying.

Another MAC shade, which I have been obsessing over, is Heroine, a stunning bold purple. This shade is extremely pigmented and creamy and has a great lasting power. This tone is a definite winter must-have; it looks gorgeous on pale complexions and makes the skin look more vibrant and fresh because of the cool undertones. This is a matte shade, so I recommend exfoliating your lips (you can make your own by mixing brown sugar and honey), applying a very thin layer of lip balm and lining your lips.

My hands-down, favourite red lipstick is Georgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in the shade 400. This is a cool-toned, deep red lipstick, which looks stunning with a very natural eye and winged eyeliner. The lasting power of this lipstick is incredible; easily 6-8 hours, I can even eat with this lipstick and it will not budge! Although this is a matte lipstick, I don’t find it drying as long as I apply a very thin layer of lip balm for extra moisture.

I hope you enjoyed and let me know your favorite lipstick in the comments!

  1. Can you recommend a good nude lipstick for medium to fair skin?

    2. Oh Yes, definitely MAC Creme D'nude or Hue. Blankety is also gorgeous. Maybe I should review them next! :)
