Everyone has a collection of lipsticks in their handbag, and thought I would start a new little series of what's lipsticks are currently living in my handbag. This month I have been wearing a mixture of liquid lipsticks, lipsticks and glosses.
I always have a trusty stash of Kat Von D liquid lipsticks in my handbag as they are my absolute faves. The two which have been taking residence in my handbag this month are Lolita II and Mother. Lolita II is described as a terracotta nude and it is my current favourite liquid lipstick, it is my favourite darker nude shade to turn to and I love pairing this with a dark, smokey eye. Mother is a medium dusty pink which suits my colourings really well. If you have any other Kat Von D shades in comparison it is darker and bright than Bauhau5, and this is more wearable for a day to day basis. The formula of these are the best on the beauty market both low and high end. The formula is thin and application wears well throughout the day with little movement.
I have recently fallen back in love with my beloved MAC lipsticks, and there are two which have been my firm favourites. Please Me is a beautiful warm toned pink which has a matte finish. This is richly pigmented which lasts well, this is a lipstick which I can wear on any day whether it is in the day when I am at work or night when I am on a night out. It is really versatile and that is definitely its main selling point. Velvet Teddy was the most sought after lipstick after Kylie Jenner described it as her go to, and it started the big nude trend which very much still exists today. It is a cool brown which also has a matte finish. I think the main selling point and what makes this such a success is that it suits so many skin tones and it is the 'perfect' nude. I reach for this often when I have used a lot of colour on my eyes and want to keep my lips neutral.
I was so excited for Anastasia Beverly Hills to realise their liquid lipsticks over here in the UK, and unfortunately they are consistency sold out on their website. However, at Christmas they started shipping to the UK and had a free shipping offer on. The brand has such a great reputation and I was dying the try a lip product, I decided to purchase one their lipglosses in the shade Peony. This is a richly pgiemte slip gloss and I own nothing like this. It feels and actually looks similar to liquid lipstick in a gloss finish. It is has a much thicker consistency compared to a lot of other glosses, and I do not own anything like this. It does not have the same lasting power as a lipstick, but I actually really enjoy wearing this and it is great on a day to day basis. I would not wear this over the top of a lipstick as I think it would be a little too much on my lips. The colour of this is a lovely medium toned pink which is a 'lips but better shade' on me.
