my favourite lipsticks


MAC LIPSTICK FROM THE WONDERWOMAN COLLECTION IN 'MARQUISE D'/NATURAL COLLECTION MOISTURE SHINE LIPSTICK IN 'ROSE BUD'/REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN 'PINK POUT'/RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH LIPSTICK IN 'ASIA'
Haven't done a beauty-related post in a little while, so thought the time was rife! These are my four favourite lipsticks at the moment - they range wildly from Natural Collection to MAC, which kind of proves that in places like MAC you often pay for the brand name, the packaging and the hype, and not necessarily for a high quality product!
Marquise D' is the only MAC lipstick I own, and is from the Wonder Woman collection. Despite what I just said about packaging, I really do think that the graphics add to this product - I know it's a little loud for some people but personally I love it. The lipstick itself is a lustre finish, and is a really nice neutral shade for everyday wear. 
The Natural Collection lipstick is in 'Rose Bud', and I mentioned it in my 'favourite products of 2011' post. It's really moisturising and is pretty much my lip colour but better. I just love it, and for £1.99 you can't complain.
Also mentioned Revlon's Pink Pout in my '2011 favourites' post. It's a lovely matte pink, and the shade and finish are absolutely perfect in my opinion. It's slightly towards the pricier end of the drugstore however is totally worth it, and if you haven't tried any Revlon lipsticks then you should definitely give them a go. I also love 'Really Red' from the same collection. 
'Asia' is a nice, slightly darker shade that I have really enjoyed wearing this winter. Rimmel London lipsticks are great as they're quite cheap and there's a wide variety of shades. This is quite similar to 'Rose Bud', however is just a little deeper. 


What are your favourite lipsticks? What are your opinions on brands such as MAC?

I agree with you about Mac, you pay for the packaging and the company name, not the actual product.

I really like the sound of pink pout. I don't own a matte lipstick

Love the look of all of these, especially "Pink Pout"! I love buying a MAC lipstick as it feels more "special" haha maybe I'm a bit strange but sometimes I hate spending so much on a lipstick! X

No matter what the colour is, if it comes in superwoman packaging then it's a winner in my eyes ;-) xx

I like the one to the right. It's sounds like Agen Bond's name. Good inspiration. Thanks for posting pics and feel free to drop by me too, soon.
