My top 10 lipstick choices

Lipstick is definitely my favourite cosmetic choice - it can pull a simple look together with one swipe, and I'm growing my collection slowly but surely. I thought I'd share my top 10 with y'all today, because why not?

apologies that they'e not in the order that they are listed below
and that this is such a crap photo. #badblogger

MAC Rebel // This was my second ever lipstick from mac - it was a birthday present last year, and I suspected I wouldn't be able to wear it 'til Autumn but it's not nearly as dark as you'd think and I absolutely love it.

Le Rouge Givenchy in 303 Coraile Décolleté // This was an 18th birthday present, and I'll never spend that much money on a lipstick for myself so I'm trying to use it sparingly as it's nearing the end of it's beautiful little life. It's the perfect shade for my skin tone and it works so well for spring/summer!

Rimmel Kate Moss 19 // The nude to end all nudes - this is so under-appreciated, especially with the whole Kylie Jenner lip colour phenomenon. It's such a gorgeous shade and I often pair it with Soap and Glory ... over the top. SO PERFECT.

Kiko Milano lipstick in 02 - Deco Delight collection // I bought this while Sam and I were on holiday in Spain; drawn in by the packaging I knew I had to have one of the lipsticks, and this shade stood out to me the most. It's such a gorgeous formula and I love it.

Rimmel Kate Moss 107 // I believe this is the shade Zoella loves, but honestly who cares because I love it and obviously that's way more important. Autumnal and red and matte and lovely.

Calvin Klein lipstick in Orange Too // I bought this on a whim for 99p from Fragrance Direct when I was making an order, and I'm so glad I did because I love it - most reds don't suit me, but this is the perfect orangey-toned red. I definitely need to wear it more.

Rimmel Kate Moss 13 // I know, you're sensing a theme here. Sorrrrreeee but they are my favourite lipstick formula ever, and cheap to boot. This one is such a lovely bright shade.

MAC Full Fuschia // My latest mac addition, a birthday present from Sam that I was terrified to wear at first because it seems so daring when you look at it - but it looks just dashing on the lips if I do say so myself.

Elizabeth Arden lipstick in 17 Rose // This is the perfect every day shade, but with a special little bit of sparkle. It's quite sheer which is something different to the rest of my faves!

PS Love Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Nude // Primark make up is, for the most part, damn good - I adore this lipstick crayon and it's literally £1.50 so go wild, I dare you. You just can't go wrong. It works fab on its own or under other shades too. What a dream.

What are your fave lippies? Any of your's on here? Let me know!


  1. Great choices Katy - I went through a stage of loving Mac Rebel (it's such a beautiful autumnal shade) but nowadays I'm far too lazy and can never be arsed with the upkeep haha. Really pretty though. xx
