5 Lipsticks You Need To Try

5 Lipsticks You Need To Try

Where do I even begin?

I am obsessed with lipsticks, honestly I feel like it is the ultimate way to express how you’re feeling when it comes to make up.  Whether you’re picking a shade to look classic or natural, all the way to feeling glamorous or mysterious, picking the right shade is key.  Shopping for new lipsticks is one of my favourite things to do because there are so many options, different undertones and formulas, the list goes on!

My current lipstick collection is probably over 60 at this point.  Will I stop though?.. not a chance in the world.  I love having variety.  My dream is to wake up to a drawer filled with endless lipstick options.  A girl can only dream right?

For now though, I have a few favourites that I cannot get enough of and I need to share with you all!

Here are my current Top 5 Favourite Lipsticks;

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick – Shade: Laguna Beach

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Laguna Beach Swatch

If you have read some of my previous posts, you’ll know how much I am obsessed with Ofra’s Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks.  The formula is one of my absolute favourites because it glides on the lips effortlessly and feels very light weight.  It doesn’t fully dry down which keeps it from sinking into cracks and keeping my lips hydrated.

The shade Laguna Beach was one of the first I purchased from the range.  I fell in love with it online and knew I just had to own it.  Laguna Beach is a very natural colored pink shade that is perfect for keeping it light and breezy.  I would recommend this color to everyone!  If you want to add a little bit of color back into the lips, you need to try it for yourself.

M.A.C Lipstick – Shade: Morange

This lipstick was a classic “Instagram made me buy it” purchase.  The color is definitely orange but it is also on the verge of red which makes ‘Morange’ by MAC extremely wearable.  I love MACs lipstick formula.  It doesn’t drag on the lips and also doesn’t feel drying which is very important to me.

This shade is amazing if you want to make a statement and stand out from the crowd.  I know, orange can be a scary color to try.  But honestly, when you dress the look up with full make up and lushous full lashes, you will make heads turn!

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Shade: Gossip Girl

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick Swatch Gossip Girl

If you have read my Make Up Recommendations for August post, you will know that the beautiful packaging lured me in to try the Huda Beauty Liquid Lipstick Range.  I personally love the formula because it is long lasting with a perfect matte finish.  I wore Gossip Girl on a night out and I was so surprised at how good it looked after so many hours.

This shade is the perfect pink shade that I think everyone needs to have in their collection.  Its a great color for a day out and also has that nice pop of pink that would be great for a first date.  I love Gossip Girl, I really need to own more shades!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Shade: Carina

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Swatch Carina

This shade had been on my wishlist for far too long until National Lipstick Day.  When I heard they were having a buy 2 get 1 free deal, I instantly took advantage of the sale and finally owned Carina for myself.  The formula is a bit on the dryer side.  However the benefit of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks is that they are pretty resistant to transferring.

To me, Carina is such a unique and stunning shade.  Its a coral-red shade which I find is very versatile and so flattering.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick – Shade: Bel Air

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Swatch Bel Air

Yes! Another shade from Ofra!  This shade ‘Bel Air’ is probably my most used lipstick that I currently own.  For me, it is my favourite nude shade so far that suits my light skin.  And by the way, it smells delicious.

I love wearing this shade when I am running erands or a day out shopping when I am trying to keep my make up minimal.  When I want my eyes to be the focus, this is my go-to.
