5 Lipstick Must Haves

I've never really considered myself a lipstick kind of girl really, but over the last few months I've collected a few that I've really come to love. Never underestimate the power of a good lipstick, the right shade has the ability to brighten your whole face, and allow you get away with wearing almost no makeup at all.

Everyone has different skin tones and preferences. But I've really come to love all shades nude and beige with a exception here and there. I also prefer a matte lipstick to anything glossy. But again it all comes down to preference. 

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick "'Velvet Beige 360" - This shade is one of my favourites, as the name states it's lovely beige shade, it applies well. It has brown/pink undertones and is quite a dark nude but it's a wonderful colour. It also has a delightful creamy texture.

Mac Lipstick in Viva Glam II - This is lipstick is a muted pink - beige with a satin finish. Although it has a satin finish, it's practically matte. It has quite cool tones, and on my skin it can be a little more brown than beige - pink. It's so smooth and glides on easily. Play around with it and pair it with different liners. You also get a good few hours wear from this lipstick. Mac certainly knows what they're doing.

Milani in Matte Naked - This is shade is more of a medium toned nude with a hint of mauve, it's much lighter than the Maybelline's Velvet Beige. Firstly the packaging is beautiful, gold and sturdy, and just bling-y enough. It's a great day time shade, and it suits my skin tone wonderfully. Another real bonus is the smell is just heavenly, it's the first thing I noticed. The formula is creamy and it applies smoothly. The only problem I have with this lipstick is I find it flakes a bit and doesn't last very long. This lipstick is also vegan and cruelty free.

E.L.F Matte Lip Color "Tea Rose - This is a jumbo sized lip pen. The packaging is simple yet cute. It's quite a neutral muave shade. It goes well with cranberry/purple eye-shadows. It has a creamy texture. And it's light and moisturizing on the lips. It really is quite lovely.

Yardley Stayfast Liquid Matte Lip Vinyl "Femme Fatale - It comes in a sleek tube and applies like lipgloss. This shade is a dark berry sort of colour, I had been looking for a vamp shade and this one suited me perfectly. Calling this stuff matte would be a serious understatement. It's amazing it just stays on no matter what, the great thing about it, is that it doesn't dry out your lips at all. You have to be quite careful when applying it, as it can be tricky. But once it's dry there is no bleeding at all.

What are some of your favourite lipsticks? I would love hear your thoughts.
