Ghenet Actually || 4 Favorite Lipsticks

I’m a big lover of lipstick. I don’t wear a massive amount of make-up, but lipsticks are the one thing I will always love. I’m trying to branch out and try new colors and things. A few weeks ago, I popped into MAC, and was talked into trying a cool slightly purple lipstick. I’m not going to lie, I liked it a lot! I’ve not quite worked up the courage to buy it, so for now I’m sticking to the old reliables! I’ve got four favorite lipsticks that I’m totally loving at the moment. I wear them as much as I can, especially now the weather is getting cooler (I don’t wear much make up in the summer, even less than I wear normally!)

My 4 Favorite Lipsticks

MAC Satin in MAC Red
It’s difficult to argue with a classic red lip. It’s perfect for any occasion and I love throwing it on even when I’m feeling a bit casual. The color is so rich and I think it’s the perfect shade of red! The thing I love about MAC lipsticks as well is how long they last. This one doesn’t take much reapplication to stay put… once it’s on, it’s on!

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color in Rosy
This lipstick is the perfect shade of pink for when you want to wear a bit of color, but don’t want lipsticks that screams, “hey I’m a crazy bright lipstick!” Did you follow that train of thought? Cool. It’s pink and orange undertones are super flattering and because it’s sheer, it’s not too overpowering. It’s a hint of color on an otherwise casual look!

Lancome Rouge in Love in Rendez-Vous
This is the closest thing I’ve ever found to a nude lipstick. I struggle with nude lipsticks because my top lip is a bit darker than my bottom lip so colors always look a bit funny. Which is why I normally go for bolder more opaque colors that cover both lips adequately. I found this gorgeous color from Lancomé after a bit of trial and error of actually trying to find a nude color. Once I found this one, it was head over heels in love, all the way!

MAC Cremesheen in Hang-Up
I bought this shade of lipstick on a whim a few years ago, because I wanted a nice change to my usual red. It’s also the perfect autumnal shade for this time of year. Just like the other MAC lipsticks, A little bit goes a long way, but if I’m in a vampier mood, I’ll layer it on for a richer color!

There you have it. My four favorite lipsticks! I love them all and though I don’t wear them all the time, I’m definitely content with this little collection! I would like to be a bit more adventurous with my lipsticks (nothing too crazy though…) but if it ain’t broke, as they say…

Pin it for later!
