My Top Lippys For This Season... And Life

So, as the overly dramatic title suggests; these are my top selection of lippys this season. Let's just dive straight in then.


(from L-R) 1. Mac Lip Lustre in Plumful 2. Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick, Rossetto, Shade 20 3. 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick, in Day-glo 4. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick, 13 Rouge Jet Set 5. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick, 02 Beige Trench 6. TopShop Lip Polish in Twin

In order of the swatches above (L-R) we have:


1. Mac Lip Lustre in Plumful
WHAT'S THIS?! Genuine MAC and not a PoundLand version? Yes dear readers, I shit you not, I actually do own a relatively high end product here. However, I only own it because my younger, richer, label MAD sister bought it for me for Chrimbo last year. Genuinely gasped when I unwrapped it; defo one of the more valuable assets I own, other than the three titanium screws holding my hip together. This fairly subtle shade is one I wap out for more casual wear; daytime or perhaps heading out for a meal with friends. 



2. Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick, Rossetto, Shade 20
Kate. Oh, Kate. I have been wearing this exact shade of lippy for the past 2 or 3 years straight (not literally this very stick, I've replaced it about a million times, like.) Daytime, evening, meals, work, drinks, heading to Tesco for my weekly best basics shop - she does me no wrong. I ADORE this colour. I used to have another, similar shade from Rimmel called So, Kiss Me or Shocking Pink (I think) - but it rolled away under a sofa of yore, never to be seen again. So I discovered this beauty, instead. Thinking about my face without this smeared all over it makes me feel very glum. I heart this lippy so, so much. #TrueStory


3. 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick, in Day-glo
This fab, paler shade by 17 was a bit of an impulse buy during times of yore, when I wasn't so strapped for cash. RIP. Anyhow, it was a bloody good investment, as I wear this most days now. It's not too dark or too much - if it had a woman's name it'd defo be Subtle Sally. A slightly more defined shade than my au naturale lip, this lippy is my daytime shade of choice. I love wearing this with a chunky knit for that rosy, winter look. I'll be honest - cos it's so fab and creamy, I quite often rub this on my cheeks as blusher, too; making for all round facial co-ordination. All round little babe this. 


4. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick, 13 Rouge Jet Set
Everyone needs a red lippy. Fact. It's just a case of figuring out which hue of red suits you best. This nifty little Bourjois lippy is one I discovered in one of my make-up cases and had forgotten about; but is one I'm digging this winter - especially over the festive season, teamed with my red nails. I love having my hair in an updo when I've got red lippy on - don't know why, potench that the inner 50's me is trying to emerge - but this red is red without being like too postbox red. Yeno? I don't hold back on wearing a subtle red lippy during the day these days either - life's too short - so this perfect. Lady in red.


5. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick, 02 Beige Trench
This nudey, vintage shade was a free gift from Bourjois at Boots the other week; and it made me tres emotional about the brilliance of this freebie. Even blogged about it, here in fact. Although the name Trench did initially make me think of trench foot, it's actually a lovely, vintage colour which makes me feel like a successful human being.


6. TopShop Lip Polish in Twin
This is genuinely the darkest lip colour I own and I'm excited to take this for a spin over Christmas and New Year. I see proper dark, plum lippys on other bloggers and they look amazing; but I am a little conscious I might look like Mona the Vampire if I go quite as dark as that, so Twin is a nice compromise. Definitely a dressy lippy for me this; one for a meal, for drinks or for a night out. Excited to channel my inner vamp and hopefully not the inner vampire.
