I am a confessed lipstick hoarder. I actually don’t have space inside my make up bag for all of my lipsticks. Embarrassing, I know. For me, my make up doesn’t quite feel complete without a staple lippy. I’m quite lucky with my skin tone and eye colour as most colours suit me. This can also be dangerous as I’m always tempted to buy more. I’ve picked out my ultimate go-to lipsticks. Whether it’s for a day in the office or for a night in town, these lipsticks are all the perfect colours and last for most of the day!
If you’re looking for a matte lipstick, I always find the mac lipsticks are amazing. They don’t dry your lips out and really make your make up stand out. I got this shade for Christmas and I’ve actually worn it most days since I opened it. The photo doesn’t do the colour justice but trust me, I had a billion different shades of pink on my hand and still chose this one!
I own about 7 of the perfectly matte avon lipsticks and I adore them. They are SO pigmented and last all day. I love this nude shade, it doesn’t make you look like you have concealer lips and it doesn’t dry your lips out so it’s a win win! For £5, these lipsticks are honestly fantastic!
Because I own so many lipsticks, it’s extremely rare that I actually use the entire tube. However, with this shade, I’m almost out! I couldn’t find it for months because they changed the packaging but I certainly need to get my hands on another. The 640 Erotique colour is gorgeous, it’s almost like a “Millenial Pink” shade and it compliments most skin tones!
Every girl boss needs a staple red lipstick. Although this is on the pricier side, it’s so worth it. It is a weightless, 12 hour liquid lipstick with a soft matte finish. It currently only comes in this head-turning red shade but it looks incredible on all skin tones
If you really want to make a statement, you should 100% invest in one of the NYX liquid matte lipsticks. I find all the shades of these stunning but you will definitely receive compliments if you style the Copenhagen shade with a smokey eye. I do personally feel like these lipsticks dry your lips out and I’ve found myself topping up throughout the day but the choice of shades is incredible!
I can’t find an individual link for this lipstick anywhere but I was gifted this set a couple of years ago and it had the most amazing shimmery lipstick in. I only ever wear mattes but I have the dark shade of this lipstick and it’s amazing! I love the packaging as well and the shape of the lipstick, it applies really easily.
I’m not usually a fan of ‘hot pink’ lipsticks but I do have a soft spot for this one. It compliments my eye colour really well. The Kate Moss lipsticks are a must-have. There are plenty of shades to choose from. Her nude range is brilliant too! They have high intensity colour and last for up to 8 hours! I highly recommend any of the shades but 05 is one of my ultimate favourites.
