Favourite Five: Lipsticks

I’m making Favourite Five as a little series, I’ll probably post one every two weeks so they’re spaced out and the series lasts a little longer.

l-r: E.L.F mineral lipstick in nicely nude, 17 lipstick in beehive, Gosh lipstick in darling, Mac lipstick in lady gaga, Revlon lipstick in pink pout
I’m pleasantly surprised that all five are pretty different in colour and formula. 

Nicely nude is probably my least used out of these 5 but definitely a favourite. In the bullet it looks like it’s a pink with gold shimmer but the shimmer isn’t noticeably when on the lips. I really need to get some more of E.L.F’s mineral lipsticks, they’re really pigmented and cheap too.

Beehive has appeared on my blog quite a lot recently. It’s the glossiest lipstick out of these 5 and definitely doesn’t need a lip gloss over the top. This isn’t always a good thing though, it means it wears away quickly and is used up quicker than most lipsticks. As I’ve said previously it will show up any dry patches on the lips but this can be solved with a strong lip balm.

I don’t tend to wear darling on it’s own, I mix it with a brighter lipstick or gloss if I want it toning down for during the day. It also nudes out my lips if I want a lipstick to show up true to the colour.
Lady Gaga is my go-to choice for nights out, I love it so much. It can be worn sheer for during the day and is perfect for the lovely weather we’ve been having. When I finish P20P I think I’m going to go to Mac and splurge on a couple of lipsticks.

Finally pink pout which is the only matte lipstick I own. Despite it being matte I don’t find it drying or highlights any dry patches on my lips. It is a gorgeous rose pink with a slight purple hint to it. It’s great for day or night.

What are your favourite lipsticks of the moment? Any Mac recommendations?

  4. Love Beehive, it's one of my go-to natural lipsticks and I've easily gone through four or five of them! Do you find that they tend to melt really easily, though?

    I definitely need to get my hands on MAC's Lady Gaga lipstick, it looks stunning!
