3 Lipsticks I've Been Loving

I try and keep lipsticks constantly on rotation, but every now and again, I literally find myself obsessing over a handful of lipsticks and abandoning the rest of mine.

First of all I have to give another shout out to the beautiful Marc Jacobs Sheer Gel Lipstick Eat Cake. I won't ramble on too much about this because I did a hefty review on it here but what I can ramble on about is how bloomin' amazing this formula is. I'm officially obsessed. If you're looking for a high-end moisturising lipstick, light weight and perfect for the Summer, then this is it. I am just baffled with how smooth and comfortable the formula is without slipping and sliding everywhere too.

Secondly a shoutout has to go to the L'Oreal Paris Privee Color Riche Lipstick in Eva's Nude. I find it really difficult to get my hands on a nude lipstick that is a cremesheen formula and a good colour match but was so lucky to have picked this one up, what seems like an age ago, and has finally made it's way back into my  handbag everyday. The shade is quite a taupey nude shade which I really enjoy as most sheer nudes have too much pink-undertone for me to wear during the evenings and muted down look.

I went through a phase of completely neglecting my Wet 'n Wild makeup, but I've been making more of an effort to buy less and ensure I'm using the most of what I have. I rekindled my love with the Wet 'n Wild 'Rose Bud' lipstick and this has been my 'bold' lipstick of choice when I've wanted to give a bit more of a pop of colour. The one thing I have found hard with this lipstick shade is eyeshadow to match it. I've been opting for mostly champagne shimmery shades, but really need some help on branching out when it comes to bright pinks - any ideas?

So there we go, a couple of lipsticks that have been finding their way into my handbag on quite a regular basis recently! Let me know in the comments below if you've tried any of them and what lipstick you can't stop wearing!

  18. Oh gosh all three are so pretty & very much my kind of shades. I have lusted over Marc Jacobs lipsticks for so long but never taken the plunge & bought one. Wet n Wild are such a great affordable brand & I have to say their lipsticks are some of my favourites.
