Top 5: Lipsticks

P1000900 (2)

Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you my top five lipsticks in no particular order. Lipstick is one of my favourite parts of my makeup routine. I love how much it can dramatically change your look.

Without further ado, here are my top five:

Fiend, Urban Decay
Described as a muted rose, I love this colour because it is a fairly neutral colour that you can pair with almost any look. This is one of my go-to lippies that never fails. It is opaque and effortless to apply. This lipstick has a creamy and somewhat shiny finish.

Up the Amp, MAC Cosmetics
Described as a lavender violet, this shade is one of my favourites because of how unique it is. As you will learn over time, purple is my all-time favourite colour. This lipstick is a beautiful, very wearable purple/pink shade. The amplified finish means it is very pigmented and long-wearing. It is creamy and does not dry out your lips.

Turn On, Urban Decay
Described as a rosy pink, this shade is special as it was my first Urban Decay lipstick. It is a beautiful pink shade. Just like Fiend, it is opaque, effortless and has a creamy/shiny finish. Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks rank highly in my collection for this reason.

Annita, NARS
Described as antique rose (is anyone else noticing a rosy trend here?), this lipstick again is a very wearable neutral shade and another one of my go-to lippies. The NARS Audacious Lipsticks are a cut above the rest. They are very pricy, but very much worth it if you are in the market for a opaque, soft and luxurious feeling lipstick. They dry to a matte finish and have an amazing staying power on the lips. You don’t end up using much product when you use them due to the opacity and the minimal (if any) touch up throughout the day.

Lumiere, Colourpop
Described as a dusty mauve pink, this lipstick is a favourite because of how versatile it is. This lippie stick is a collaboration between Colourpop and the talented KathleenLights from YouTube. She describes it better than I can, so I’m including an excerpt from Colourpop’s website: “I wanted a color that both bold and shy people could wear. It’s not a nude..it would look great on EVERYONE​!” Lumiere has a matte finish but does not feel uncomfortable to wear. Colourpop lippie stix are also amazing because of their super affordable price.

Honourable Mentions: Embrace Me, MAC, Angela, NARS and Brills, Colourpop

All of the products that I have mentioned have significant staying power. They all fade fairly evenly and still look good throughout the morning. I do typically add a coat after lunch before going back to work. As I play with swatching these and then remove them from my arm with a makeup removing wipe, they have left stains, just further demonstrating how long they last.

What are your favourite lipsticks? Let me know in the comments below!

    1. I’ve been wanting that one for awhile! it’s definitely on my sephora wish list!

  3. […] There is a a bit less cohesion with this eye shadow quad than with the last one, but I like all of the shades anyways so I’m fine with that. If you would like to see swatches of the Where the Light is quad, I posted them here. For her previous Lippie Stix which was Lumiere you can find a swatch of that here. […]
