How are you all? Spring is in the air and you wouldn’t know it in the UK. But still!!! Anyway, anyone who reads my blog will know that i am a bit of a lipstick fanatic. I own far too many to count and constantly buy more. Its my favourite piece of makeup along with mascara. So, i thought i would do a post on my top 5 most favourite colours.
Setting out, i didn’t realize how hard this post was going to be. The problem is, i love so many shades of lipsticks and some are autumn/winter shades as well as spring/summer ones. So i thought i would break the post down into 4 sections and i am going to start with my five favourite lipsticks for Spring.
I tend to go for brighter shades in the spring and summer and more muted deeper ones in the autumn and winter.
Here they are:
1. Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lipstick in shade 91 Séduisante.
I have done a post on this lipstick already here. Its such a lovely shade of pink with a slightly nude finish to it. Very much a day wear lipstick and gives a very soft feel to the lips without wearing off quickly. The packaging on Rouge Allure lipsticks is probably the nicest and classiest out there. It has a spring action pop top.
2. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 74 Parfait.
I bought this last year. It is a pale pink shade with a lot of gold shimmer. Ideal for wearing over other lipsticks to mute the shade down a bit and also matte lipsticks to add a lot of shine. It can also be worn on its own to add a bit of shine to your lips. Ideal for Spring because the sun will catch the gold shimmer on the lips and it has the nice watery feel to it as Rouge Coco Shines do.
3.Dior Addict Lipstick. DiorKiss 578.
This was the one that Kate Moss wore in the promo picks at the time and is a stunning quite bright pink. I like the Dior addict lipsticks because they remind me a lot of Chanel Rouge Coco Shines, in fact a very lot!! They are soft and have a wet like feel on the lips with a little slip and the colour needs to be reapplied fairly regularly due to the moisturizing finish on them. I loved this shade on Kate Moss, so i had to have it.
4.Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in shade 77 Jersey Rose.
A Gorgeous nude pink/coral shade. I just love this in Spring. It goes with the Chanel Joues Contraste Blusher 65 Espiégle, (they came out together). Rouge Coco lipsticks are not as moisturizing as Rouge Allure; however, they have more staying power and i like the way they feel on my lips.
5. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage.
A very bright, in your face blue-toned fuchsia. Because it is matte, the staying power is amazing. The downside of wearing matte lipsticks is you really have to make sure your lips are not dry in any way or the lipstick will cling to the flakes. I tend to calm the shade down a little with Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Parfait, pictured right.
Yes, i do own more Chanel lipsticks than any other, followed by Dior but these lipsticks are just heavenly and worth the expense.
What are your favourite lipsticks? Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
