My current favourite lipsticks

To start off, I'm just going to let you guys know that I'm a very big lipstick lover, I would wear a different shade every day if I could. I just can't get enough of them! But recently I've been reaching for four specific lipsticks:

(L-R) Dior Addict 249 Diorissime, Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense 38
Revlon Lip Butter 095 Creme Brûlée & Nars Pure Matte Lipstick Bangkok 

As you can tell from the photo, I love my pink lipsticks! I feel as though they suit my skin tone the best and therefore I feel the most confident when wearing them. In saying this, I do like to switch it up and wear a nice nude shade or when I'm feeling a bit wild I'll break out my red lippies (I like my Revlon Lip Butter 035 Candy Apple & Revlon Super Lustrous 006 Really Red). All these lipsticks are beautiful and very moisturising for my lips. Although, I do admit, some of my Make Up For Ever lipsticks and my Nars Bangkok lipstick are a bit more on the dry side, so I always have to keep a lip balm handy when using them. So here's what they look like when swatched:

(T-B) Creme Brûlée, Bangkok, 38 &Diorissime

I do find Diorissime to be a little sheer, but it looks so beautiful on especially with that slight shimmer. I think if I was looking for the perfect everyday shade for my lips I would choose the Nars' Bangkok because it's a lovely subtle colour and it is matte. I'm looking forward to expanding my lipstick collection in the next few weeks, even though I shouldn't! I just can't help it haha! What are your current favourite lippies? 



  1. oooh loving all the pinks x

  2. I always swatch Diorissime when I'm at Sephora and have the thought of buying it, but I have a hard time pulling the trigger on getting a lipstick over $30...unless dreaming about it keeps me up at night!

    On that note, my favorite lipsticks are YSL Rouge Volupte in Opera Rose (I definitely couldn't get it out of my head for a good month before I bought it!!) and MAC Blossom Culture <3

    I love pink lippies too!
