We all have those shades of lipstick that we're drawn towards... mine happen to be cool-toned matte pinks. Not too bright, not too pale or too barbie - I'm very particular. I know it's more helpful, so I'm making an effort to include more swatches as well! The one that kicked off the obsession is one of my all time favourites - MAC pink plaid. This is just a magical little lipstick, and one I wear so often but one I never get tired of. If you haven't tried this one, give it a swatch next time you're at the MAC counter - you can thank me later :)
Another absolute gem is the Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Lovesick. I've mentioned this loads of times before, but know that the formula is gorgeous and the shade is dreamy. Even more exciting - KVD is coming to Debenhams in September! No more ordering from Sephora and shipping it over. The newest one is the Illamasqua matte lipstick in Wanton. It's from the new rose gold collection, and is the rosiest of the bunch, and probably the one that suit every skin tone. I like the formula, it's not as drying as some of the Illamasqua ones but still matte enough for me.
