Lipsticks of the Week/Month/Quarter [Delete as applicable]

By Tindara

It has been a while since I detailed the lipsticks I’ve been wearing regularly. As Louise herself said recently in a Lippie missive, we may as well start calling it Lipsticks of the Quarter. But if you bear with me, I’ll let you know about a few new discoveries I am excited about. I’ve been watching quite a few Beauty Vlogs recently and they’ve influenced me to look at lots of new products, sometimes from lower budget ranges than I would normally go for.

First up is one I’ve had for while, Lancome Rouge in Love Dan Ses Bra 163M. The colour is just beautiful, a perfect rose pink-red that’s good for every day but works with a more full-on eye too. It’s very moisturising, doesn’t last as long as others I have, but it’s worth reapplying for the colour, scent, and feel. It really is a lovely shade that would suit lots of people. Especially good if you’re a bit scared of bright red or pink shades as it’s slap bang between the two, but a touch softer.

Because it’s still so cold and wintery I’ve been into deep plum and purple shades and finally have the guts to wear Bobbi Brown Cream Matte Lip Color in Crushed Plum. It’s a lovely deep wine colour and fairly hydrating despite the matte formulation, I really like to wear it with gold or coppery colours on my eyes.

The other purply plum I’ve been wearing is a great new discovery for me. I have acquired quite a few Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms. I love a matte lipstick and these are very moisturising minty balm stains that somehow remain magically matt on your lips. The shade I wore last week was Shameless. I was out of my lipstick comfort zone as this was very purple, but still, I love it. It’s playful and interesting without being too Goth or Emo. I did ask my husband whether it was a bit ‘Twilight’, I figure since he teaches teenagers, he’d know. It was deemed fine, so I went ahead and wore it, again, with coppery shades on my eyes.

Another matte lipstick I’ve had multiples of is Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick. A liquid matte lipstick that’s comfortable and leaves a very long-lasting stain; you can apply lip balm on top throughout the day, and they really last. My favourite colour is Frambourjois, and I wore this last week. As I do, most weeks to be honest. It is, like the Lancome Rouge in Love Dan Ses Bra 163M, a perfect colour between pink and red that would suit most people. Slightly brighter then the Lancome, and looks chic on it’s own with little eye make-up.

Another long lasting balm to finish, Rimmel London Colour Rush in The Redder The Better. I like these Rimmel balms a lot though they’re more dewy than matte with a slightly more sheer texture. They are buildable though, and look great with a corresponding lip liner if you’re going for a deeper lip colour. But they also look great dabbed on lightly with little other make-up when you’re just pottering around local places for local people and want to look a bit more cas’. If like me, you habitually turn to higher end lipsticks, try some of the drugstore ranges’ tinted balms and matte formulations; they may surprise you and make it into your weekly favourites.
