Favourite Highend & Drugstore Lipsticks

Today I thought I would show you a few of my favourite lipsticks, both highend and drugstore of the moment.

So lets get started with my six favourite highend.

Favourite Mac Lipsticks
Mac Lipstick Collection
Favourite Mac Lipsticks
    L-R  Nars Flamenco (Sheer), Mac Girl About Town (Amplified), Mac Likable (Creamsheen)
  Mac Show Orchid (Amplified), Mac Creme Cup (Creamsheen), Mac Hue (Glaze).

I'm absolutely obsessed with bright colours at the moment and you really can't beat Mac quality. They are so smooth and pigmented and last ages on the lips without a top up. Hue & Creme Cup are my go-to nudes I adore them, even my mum bought herself creme cup after sampling mine and she's not really a make up girl (lady) lol. I always go for sheer, glaze or creamsheen finishes as I can't stand matte lipsticks, they look gross on my dry, flaky lips.

Mac Lipstick Swatches
Flamenco, Girl About Town, Lickable, Show Orchid, Creme Cup, Hue.

Now onto my six favourite drugstore lipsticks of the moment:
Favourite Highend & Drugstore Lipsticks
Topshop Coy Lipstick
Favourite Highend & Drugstore Lipsticks
 L-R Revlon Lip-stain in Passion, Topshop Lipstick in Coy, Topshop Lipstick in Brighton Rock, Rimmel in 500 Diva Red, Rimmel 006 in Pink Blush, 17 in Cashmere Blush.

I think you can probably tell which shade of lipstick I tend to steer towards lol, pink of course and there are so many drugstore alternatives. The Revlon lip-stains are amazing, they come with a balm on the other end which you put over the top and it stops them becoming all dry. They also last all day which is fabulous.

 Swatches: Topshop Coy Swatch
L-R   Passion, Coy, Brighton Rock, Diva Red,   Pink Blush, Cashmere Blush.

There we have it, these are the lipsticks that have been gracing my lips over the last few months, although I think they will be for a long time.

 As always, leave me some of your lipstick recommendations, I just can't get enough.

XOXO Claire
