this post will be another one in my "spring favourites" series (nails post here), but today it will be about lips! I'm not really a lip gloss/stick/stain kinda gal but recently i have been wearing them a lot more often! these are the ones i have been loving recently in spring..
L-R: bourjois lipstick in rose requinique | avon lipstick in can't resist | maybelline colour sensational lipstain in shy red | natural collection lipstick in apple blossom | ELF moisturising lip tint in pink |
unfortunately i can't find this on the boots/superdrug website, they may have discontinued it but you may still be able to buy it in store, but i have found it on ebay for a bargain price of just £1.80 (here)! I think this was around £5/6 from boots. it is such a gorgeous pale pink colour, bordering quite a nude shade, however it doesn't wash you out, even with my vampire-like pale skin.
avon lipstick in can't resist
if you have been following me for a while you may have already seen this lipstick in an avon collection post (here) but anyway it is a gorgeous corally-red shade. it looks quite scary and bright in the bullet, and can be if you want to build it up, but i prefer to sheer it out my dabbing it on the lips, which creates a soft corally-red colour which is gorgeous! avon products are really affordable but amazing quality, the only downside is that they aren't really too readily available, and have to be ordered either online or from your local representative.
maybelline colour sensational lipstain in shy red
this lipstain is a beautiful pinky-red shade, and unlike other lipstains i've tried, this doesn't dry you lips out at all! it's not exactly moisturising but it doesn't make your lips any drier, and i would advise putting a lip balm on and prepping your lips before wearing this! this lasts pretty much all day on the lips, and you barely ever need to touch up! this is available from boots for £5.99 (here)
natural collection lipstick in apple blossom
i bought this a while ago and didn't really like it so i just tossed it to the back of my make up drawer, but i rediscovered this a few weeks ago and i've really been enjoying it! i think the problem i had with this was that i was apply quite thickly straight from the bullet and it was washing me out and made me seem as if i'd put a load of concealer on my lips (not a good look!) but if you pat this on to your lips and then blend it in, it is the most gorgeous nude! it has a slight pinky colour to it in real life, than on the photo. this is an absolute steal at just £1.99 from boot!
ELF moisturising lip tint in pink
this is basically just a tinted balm, but the colour is so pretty, although the name is a bit misleading as i find it to be more peachy-brown than a pink, other than that it's lovely! i actually got this free with an order i made a while ago, and although this is a favourite of mine, once it runs out i don't think i would repurchase it in this particular colour, as they now have similar ones of these in boots, so no shipping/postage fees! nevertheless i will continue to use this through out the spring/summer months! this is available on the ELF website here and it only £3.50!
thank you for reading, i hope you enjoyed! i'd love to know what lip products you're liking too!
