“Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people.” – Dita Von Teese
Amen to that. There’s something about lipstick that makes us girls feel more pulled together, more capable, and ready to conquer the world.
It can be no coincidence that in times of recession, sales of lipstick go through the roof – after all, there’s a reason its called ‘warpaint’. It makes you ready for battle.
Like most bloggers, lipstick of all kinds holds a special place in my heart, so thank you to beautiful KerryJustBeauty for tagging me for this post. Here goes…
FAVOURITE BALM OR CONDITIONING TREATMENT
And I love a dab of good old Vaseline Lip Therapy for during the day, it never lets me down.
Because its such a multi-taster I always carry a little tin with me. I usually pop some on the tops of my cheekbones as well – it gives a gorgeous, youthful glow to the skin that looks amazing, especially in photos, a total secret weapon.
I love the limited editions they do and always have to collect them! My all time favourite is the Pink Bubbly version shown here. A girl can never have too much lipstick, or too many bubbles…
BEST EYE CATCHING RED
BEST LUXURY LIP PRODUCT
BEST DRUGSTORE LIP PRODUCT
BEST MAC LIPSTICK
The formula of these is just yummy. They feel sort of gel like, very moisturising and the finish is so dewy and pretty. Plus I like the pewter tubing much more than Mac’s usual packaging. So much sleeker!
MOST DISAPPOINTING LIP PRODUCT
LINER – YES OR NO?
My favourite is the ‘candy gloss’ shade which is shot through with a fine golden shimmer and looks incredible on top of a nude shade. Some people aren’t keen on the ‘tingle’ effect, but I really like it for some reason!
And remember…on a bad day, there is always lipstick!
