I spotted this on Laura's blog and knew instantly I really wanted to do this. I love lipsticks, there's no deep meaning behind it, I just really like them. I don't own as many as I used to, but a lot more than other people. As my flatmate said to me 'no one ever needs that many lipsticks', well Kate, I'm here to tell you that I do need that many and many more to come.
Favourite Balm or Treatment?
This is easy, Clinique Lip Intensive Treatment. I've nearly used the whole thing, so I think that is a record as I usually lose them when I'm half way through it. It has been described as By Terry Baume De Rose in a tube by Anna, so I'm down with that. It's soft, hydrating, lingers around for a while and I could just keep on applying it all day. Go buy one!
Best Eye Catching Red Bright?
I own a lot of reds, mostly quite dark. MAC Mattene Lipstick in Eden Rouge (discontinued) is amazing and bright. I do also really love NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, as well as a new NARS release which will be revealed soon. I always go to NARS and MAC for reds.
Favourite Pink Lipstick?
NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Funny Face. I love this lipstick and I'm so glad I bought this. It's bright, a statement lip and I have to be feeling brave when I do wear it.
Favourite Nude Lipstick?
A classic - MAC Hue. My first every MAC lipstick and I am finally near the end of it. A classic nude which suits me when I'm both pale and tanned. I think it can suit almost everyone too!
Best Luxury Lipstick?
Anything by Tom Ford. That man can make a good lipstick.. True Coral is a beautiful bright coral. I am dying to own Spanish Pink. I need it, seriously, I can't stop thinking about it at times.
Best MAC Lipstick?
I own a lot of MAC lipsticks, far too many than I should. MAC Syrup is my favourite, as I wear it most days and it suits me perfectly. It's a sheer toned purple nude which keeps the lips hydrated, it's the closest match to my natural lip shade.
Now it's a draw. I love the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in 05 (not pictured as it was lost amongst bags) and the Bobbi Brown Lip Glosses. You cannot beat an old school sticky lipgloss and the Bobbi Brown classics are something which you cannot stay away from. But then again the Clarins option is perfect, so it's definitely a draw.
Favourite Spring/Summer Shades?
It would have to be a mix between purple/lilacs and corals. I own so many peachy pinks, it's ridiculous but I wear them all so often. My most worn lipsticks are the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in Lusting Lilac and Coral. I do believe they have discontinued them, which makes me so sad I nearly cried when I realised.
Favourite Autumn/Winter Shades?
As soon as it becomes cold, the deep red and purples come out. Think MAC Craving, Rimmel Kate Moss 107 and By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge in Sangaria Appeal which is a new addition.
For a red lip, yes. NARS Lip Pencil in Amazon is my favourite but 99% of the time, it's a no for me. I'm just too lazy for that.
