I started experimenting with make up in my early teens which was in the 90’s and I can remember a couple of lipsticks I liked – a classic browny nude by Collection 2000, a soft pink lipstick/balm hybrid by Boots Collection and a shimmery gold lipstick by Rimmel. I loved these but would get some rather unflattering comments from so called ‘friends’ and others at school which made me very self conscious about my make up choices and as a result I steered clear of lipsticks for many years as I was not confident in which shades or finishes complimented my skin tone. Oh how I loved my awkward self conscious teenage years!
Ever since this trauma from my teens I have stuck firmly to lip balms and lip glosses. Loving Lancôme Juicy Tubes and MAC lip glosses in sheer pinky/coral shades.
Now I am in my 30’s I have branched out and am embracing lipsticks and experimenting once more. I have recently invested in several Revlon lip products. I am particularly fond of their crayon style moisturising ColorBurst Lip Balm Stain in Honey and ColorBurst Lip Laquer in Demure. The Balm Stain is a gorgeous pink colour which is high in pigment and high in moisture with fantastic staying power. The Lip Laquer is not suprisingly a more of a gloss in a crayon stick, super shiny with some rather large pieces of glitter which does feel gritty on the lips – so this may not be for everyone.
I also absolutely love their range of ColorBurst Lip Butters especially Tutti Frutti. This is a gorgeous orangey coral colour. Dense in pigment and I would say more glossy than the Balm Stains.
Another favourite at the moment which is in the photo below is MAC Twig lipstick which has a satin finish.
This shade on the lip actually reminds me of the browny pink nudes which were in style in the 90’s when I was a teen – oh how the fashions and trends come back around! My choice of this gorgeous browny pink nude lip was inspired by Kylie Jenner which is all over the Internet!
Twig has a lovely creamy texture which glides on the lip and is moisturising. This is currently my go to day time lip. Love it!
