My Top 5 Lipsticks

 Hiya Lovelies! 
Another of my "Top Five" posts for you today! I had real trouble when picking products for this one as I’ve really been loving lip products lately. Now, i have quite a small lip collection as they are something I’ve never been too confident about and "Back 2 Mac" has made my collection lean rather Mac heavy. So to put it bluntly, i couldn't pick just five from all of them, so i narrowed it down to my top bullet form lipsticks. That's not cheating, right? And it also gives me the chance to do another lip related post, bonus!

So yes three of them are Mac, but considering half my collection is Mac, its not that bad! But yes i really do need to branch out with my lip products. And don't worry; I’ve got my eye on some new pretties as we speak!
Mac - Pink Burst
This was a little hidden gem i found at my local Cosmetics Company Outlet late last year. Sadly it was limited edition and google tells me if was from a spring collection in 2010, but I'm hoping it'll get a re-promote at some point because i think it’s an amazing shade! It’s a blue based pink that is perfect for my pale complexion and its chock full of fuchsia glitter. Love! I also love that although it’s full of glitter it’s not at all gritty, as rough lippies are one of my pet peeves. It has great pigmentation, wears really well and makes my teeth look whiter, which is always a plus. I'm just shocked I’ve not heard much on the blogosphere about this shade.

Wet 'n' Wild - Don't Blink Pink
So i love to watch the odd beauty YouTube video and the Wet 'n' Wild Mega Last Lipsticks kept reappearing in favourites and hauls from the USA. So of course i went on the eBay hunt and bagged two for just £3 each, and i am SO glad i did. Don't Blink Pink is probably the brightest colour i own, it really does pack a punch in the colour department. It’s completely opaque with one swipe and leans towards the matte side, which I’m really loving lately. I also find that because it’s a slightly drier formula it wears AMAZINGLY, i feel confident that i don't need touch ups every 10 minutes. And even though it is a drier texture it doesn't really dry my lips out. For a $2 lipstick they are gorgeous and i am really looking forward to picking up a whole load more on holiday.
Mac - Rebel
Now this one gets a lot of love online, and for good reason. Rebel was my favourite shade to wear over the colder months last year. It’s a purplish berry shade that would work well on most skin tones and my lip swatch really does not do it justice. It wears a lot darker on my pale complexion than it appears on camera which is why it’s my winter love. So although it’s not been getting much use over the last few months it really does deserve to be in my top five, it’s a real stunner of a shade.
 Revlon Lip Butter - Peach Parfait
Meet my "lazy" lipstick. This has probably gotten the most use over any lip product in my collection because it is just so easy to wear. Its sheer enough to apply without a mirror without fearing looking like a clown, but adds just enough colour and shimmer to give a sort of "my lips but better" effect. I was a bit bummed at first at the pigmentation of it, but the sheerness of it makes it wearable with nearly anything which is why it has its place constantly in my handbag!

Mac - Costa Chic  
If summer was a lipstick it would be this one. Costa Chic is a gorgeous summery coral colour that i wish I’d purchased sooner. For some time now I’d be avoiding corals like the plague, convinced that on my fair skin it’d give me that tangoed glow that everyone dreads. But how wrong was i? I absolutely love this lipstick! I normally pair it with Nyx's Pinky Lip Pencil, purely because i don't own a coral one yet (not to self, eBay!). My only little niggle is i wish it wasn't a glaze finish, purely because it leaves me on the hunt for matte corals that are just as flattering.

So that’s my Top Five lipsticks!
