Current Favourite Lipsticks and Glosses

L-R: Rimmel London Kate Matte Collection Lipstick in 107, No7 Wild Volume Lipstick in Caramel Kiss, Clinique Different Lipstick in Sweet Honey & Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in 483

Currently I have been really loving several lipsticks, which is unusual for me as I usually go through stages of sticking to one and very rarely changing it. But, maybe its getting to the point where I just own too many lipsticks to do that?

The first is the Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Lipgloss in the colour 483. I was given this by someone a LONG time ago, when I was probably to young to really appreciate make-up or Dior! However, recently I have been wearing it a lot. It looks quite a strange and 'daring' lipgloss colour in the packaging, as it almost looks purple with blue undertones. But when applied to the lips it is a soft pink with purple tones to it. I tend to wear it mostly over the top of lipsticks, rather than wearing it on its own, as I just feel that it makes lipsticks 'pop'. I usually really dislike wearing lipglosses, the texture and the shiny look really throw me off, however, I do really love this one. The texture is not too sticky, like some cheaper branded lipglosses can be and it it very durable. It lasts a long time and adds a subtle shimmer to the lips. (SEE THE FIRST LIP SWATCH PHOTO, TO SEE HOW IT LOOKS ON THE LIPS!)

The second is the Rimmel London lipstick, which is from the Kate Moss Matte collection. I saw the advert on the television for the matte collection, and was really interested give them a try as before this I didnt own any matte lipsticks. The only colour I liked in the range was this deep read, which is shade 107. I never wear red's so I dont really know why I bought it, I suppose I do want to find the occasion to wear a red shade. This one suits my skintone perfectly, its a deep red, and the matte finish really suits me. I usually apply it very lightly, and it makes my lips a touch darker and more red, whilst still looking natural. I cannot wait for a time to wear this properly! (SEE SECOND LIP SWATCH PHOTO, TO SEE HOW IT LOOKS ON THE LIPS!)

The third lipstick is one from No7. I very rarely buy makeup from No7 unless I have a gift voucher, which I usually do as Boot's are always handing them out! So, with my last £5 voucher, I decided to buy this lipstick (it was £9 in total, so I did have to put some of my own money in) and I have fallen in love. Its the perfect 'my lips but better' shade, and is highly wearable throughout the day time. It goes hardly noticed, as it looks so natural. It has a creamy consistancy, which I like as it feels moisturising, and I am sure, although I dont know 100%, that it contains lip plumping agents. Like with some lipglosses, it tickles and stings a little on application, and this is usually to 'plump' your lips, so I hazard a guess that this has some of those qualities. This is one lipstick that I wear on a daily basis, and usually apply the Dior Lipgloss over the top for some more colour and glam. (SEE THIRD LIP

Lastly, the Clinique Different Lipstick in Sweet Honey. This used to belong to my mum, but I did steal it from her. It is quite old, and I probably should throw it away. The only issue is that its the perfect lip colour for me, and I fear that it has been discontinued, as Clinique seem to have a habit of discontinuing a lot of their makeup products! I havent taken a photo of it on my lips, as it really is hardly noticeable. When I wear it, my lips look hardly any differnt, they just have a subtle sheen to them. The lip colour itself is practically identical to my natural lip colour, so it is truly perfect for me. So, again one that I wear practically everyday.

What are your favourite lipsticks and glosses? Do you own any of these ones?

  2. i love the formulation of Dior lipsticks and they always feel so luxurious to use. I've never really tried No.7 or Clinique lipsticks as i tend to lean towards other brands which are a bit more well known for their great lipsticks. However, the colours looks really pretty especially the Clinique lipstick in sweet honey. Thanks for the review and the swatches :) xxx

    1. When I bought this it was the last one left on the shelves and everytime I have been into a Boot's it has been sold out, whilst all the other shades are there! Must be on high demand!

    1. yep, when I do a 'natural' makeup I always pick this No7 lipstick as it looks just like my natural lips, so it doesnt look like I have tried with my makeup at all :) haha

    1. I do too, but sadly the range isnt massive and none of the other colours would suit me at all! All of the colours tend to sell out really quickly too, i think the 'matte' effect is really flattering!
