Confessions of a Self Confessed Lipstick Hoarder

So if you’ve been keeping up with my social media posts this week then you’ll know of my love of lipsticks, more like a full blown obsession. It’s the last product that goes on your face before you feel done, its that bold burst of colour or shy sweep of gloss that make your lips go wow. There’s such a variety of shades and textures and finishes that it can become overwhelming. With this in mind i thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you every month, reviewing lipsticks I've recently purchased and sharing my thoughts.

Where to start, rifling through my lipstick collection trying to find the perfect collection of lipsticks to share with you all, i found myself pulling out some recent and long loved drugstore lipsticks. I am so impressed with some of these lipsticks and one of the best things about them is the price. These little lippies range from £5.49-£6.99 at Boots which is an absolute bargain when they have the same if not better quality than some of the high end brands which can be £15 and upwards. All of the lipsticks i have chosen glide over my lips and have the creamiest formula that leaves my lips feeling really smooth and nourished.

#45-A slightly rosy colour from the Nude Collection by Kate for Rimmel London. It is a subtle wash of colour that is perfect for everyday wear. As it has a slightly pink undertone it wears well on someone with a cool undertone to their skin. I would, however, like if it had more staying power as I tend to find myself re-applying this often throughout the day.

#42- A peachy pink nude that is again from the Nude collection by Kate Moss. This is another pinky nude that’s a little paler than 45 and more pink. The colour is not intense but is buildable and has a warmer tone. It’s a lipstick that i find myself reaching for time and time again as it just works with everything.

#264- My perfect shade of brown. This ‘Coffee Shimmer’ is part of the lasting finish collection by Rimmel London and has a shimmery finish that leaves your lips looking fuller and with more dimension and is a perfect dupe for MAC’s creme cup.  It has a high colour impact and is long lasting making it the perfect lipstick for an evening with a cocktail or two. It is also incredibly creamy and feels more like a balm than a lipstick as it makes my lips feeling fuller and nourished.

#08- This shade is a dusty rose pink with a mauve tinge that looks fabulous on both warm and cool skin tones. Its such a flattering shade that I can swipe on for any occasion and don’t have to worry about how it wears with the rest of my look as its such a natural flush f colour. This is definitely one of my favourites and is again from Rimmel.

#975- This is the perfect red wine coloured lippie from Maybelline. It is a matte finish but doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry and chapped. For a matte lipstick it feels so juicy and rejuvenating. It is perfect for a night out and will definitely make your lips stand out.



What do you think of these lipsticks? What are your favourite drugstore lipsticks?
