top 5 favourites series: lips




In any makeup collection, there are always those lip products you reach for time and time again. In a rush? Grab that perfect nude lipstick. Are you going out for the night? Then you're probably already holding that super long lasting red. That is the great thing about our makeup collections - no matter how much we add to them, there are always a few products that stand out.

I noticed that there were certain lip products I was using more often than others...which is exactly what inspired me to start my top 5 favourites series. The first post in this series is dedicated to my favourite lip products. So, here goes!




1) NARS lipgloss in Turkish Delight

This is my favourite lip product by far! If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, you probably already know that I am a massive fan of NARS products. In general, I am not so into lipglosses - mostly because they can feel really sticky and horrible. NARS lipglosses however, do not. They have a ton of pigmentation, go on smooth, and never feel sticky. The baby pink shade is perfect for a night out.

2) Maybelline Moisture Extreme in Buttercup

Sadly, this shade is discontinued - so I pray that I never run out! What I love the most about this gorgeous caramel shade is that it is a warmer nude that looks great with any makeup look. And, as the name suggests, it is super moisturizing on the lips. I never feel the need to wear lip balm or chap stick over it. This is the perfect nude shade that I find myself reaching for constantly.

3) YSL Rouge Volupte in Peach

Last summer, I was looking for the perfect peach lipstick shade...and I finally found it in this amazing YSL lipstick. I am such a big fan of YSL lipsticks in general - they are so creamy, rich, and pigmented. They are totally worth the splurge. I love this shade for spring and summer and I am so excited to bring it out again this year!

4) Revlon Super-Lustrous in Berry Rich

This beautiful berry shade is one of my all time favourites. It adds a little sophisticated drama to any makeup look and is absolutely perfect if you're going out for dinner or a night on the town. I have used this one a lot since I got it. The texture is really nice and smooth on the lips and has really great longevity. Best of all, the shade is unbeatable!

5) Red Apple Lipstick in Sunkissed

I may or may not have an obsession with coral lipsticks. In fact, I have six of them. They just look so good in the summer! My favourite coral lipstick has to be this one from Red Apple Lipstick. I was given it to review a while back and I just instantly fell in love with the bold shade. It looks amazing on and the colour lasts all day.

Honourary mentions go to: Maybelline Super Stay Stain Gloss and Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Brick.

These are my top 5 favourite lip products...what are yours?
