Starting Off: Lipstick
I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to lipstick. My favourite lipstick brand is MAC. I know the £15 price tag is quite hard to swallow but I justify this due to it's impressive longevity.
You're unlikely to find me cluttering up the ladies loo on nights out reapplying my make-up. I hate the thought of needing to top up on the hour or lugging half the content of my bedroom with me. I want to apply it just once and be done.
MAC lasts. It's a pricey purchase but worthy of a place on your Christmas list. I especially love the Lusture finishes and always find a new shade that tickles my fancy.
I started by picking up staple colours and slowly delved into more unusual shades to add to my MAC haul.
Looking to the High Street it's Revlon that cannot be beaten on shade selection and price. It lasts around an hour and top ups are eventually needed (a swish of trusty Lipcoat helps massively!)
Revlon are great if you're on a budget & feeling experimental with your lip colour. Black Cherry in 477 is my current autumnal fave!
Barry M are also great, especially for vivid neon shades for summer. Both Barry M and Revlon lipsticks aren't drying and apply effortlessly which is why they get the thumbs up from me.
Its also worth exfoliating your lips prior to any lipstick application to stop the colour from bleeding. Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub does this job exceptionally and smells pretty damn great too!
Balmi is another great lip product: It comes in funky packaging that doubles up as a keychain. Perfect for on the go moisture. The coconut flavour is my favourite!
