Review: Lipstick Loves

As the old song goes “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.”  And whats a smile without some colour on those lips?

Below are some lipsticks which are my absolute favourites at the moment.


First up…Max Factor Lipfinity Lipstick in Charming (140).    It’s a liquid lipgloss and comes with a moisturising stick you apply after letting the gloss dry for a minute. It’s really moisturising which is great for me as I suffer with dry lips. Also it does last really really well. It does not come off on glasses or mugs and after eating I usually just reapply some moisturiser which freshens up the colour. They have 25 different shades to choose from, but I personally love this colour. Its so versatile, I wear it to work, to the shops and out for a nice dinner. I highly recommend this product and I cant wait to try it in different shades.
 My second colour is from MAC. I love MAC makeup products, especially their lip stuff. I’m also a huge Kylie Jenner fan and what’s more Kylie Jenner than a Velvet Teddy lipstick and a Spice lipliner. Velvet Teddy is a great natural looking colour but also like the Max Factor one a very girly, pretty colour. IMG_0584IMG_8640IMG_8402

Lastly one which I got for Christmas – Whirl. I’ve been wanting to try it for ages and I absolutely love it. It’s such a gorgeous colour and I feel it gives off a grungey vibe to your look. I also use Spice lip liner or Nice ‘N’ Spicy which it’s similar but a bit more peachy and soft.    As much as I love MAC lipsticks, they dry my lips out really bad so I always keep a tube of Carmex in my handbag and dab it on over my lipstick which I find always helps.

As I mentioned before I am a Kylie Jenner fan – I love her style and how experimental and bold she is with her hair and makeup. So naturally I was desperate to get my hands on one or all of her lip kits but unfortunately I wasnt so lucky, they sold out so fast. I hear there is a relaunch with some new colours in the next month or so, so hopefully I will be more lucky next time. Have any of you got one?
