When it comes to makeup, I am really not adventurous. I tend to gravitate towards the shades that I like, and end up being in a makeup rut. I love it though. Especially when it comes to lipsticks, I grab my favourites on a daily basis. They’ve all been mentioned so many times before but sometimes the classics still need some attention. So, these are The Lipsticks I Always Go Back To. ps Sorry they all look exactly the same…
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk
I’m ready to just be on commission for pillow talk at this point. I talk about it and recommend it so often because it’s truly beautiful. I wear it all the time, I’ve almost finished it and I just absolutely adore the shade. Exactly like my own lip colour, but a little deeper and therefore a little more interesting. I also love the matte formula which has good longevity but isn’t too drying. If you’re looking for your dream everyday lipstick and haven’t found it yet, then you need to try pillow talk.
Is peige a word? A little bit of pink and a little bit of beige muddled together. If not, I’ve just invented it… If that sounds like your kind of thing, Nars Anita is well worth investigating. The almost coral tones in it manage to brighten the complexion nicely without being too bright to stop you wearing it daily. The audacious lipstick formula is one of my favourites as it’s so creamy and comfortable whilst being a satin finish. Gotta love the snazzy gold packaging, too.
Something a little bit pinker. Marginally pinker. Not necessarily pink enough to shout about, but it has a really my lips but better vibe going on. Easy to throw on with any sort of makeup situation. I find myself wearing this a lot when I have meetings or work things because it manages to make you look polished and somewhat put-together. So, the smart black trousers of the lipstick world essentially. Pair with this with a sweep of pink blush, some liquid liner and you’re onto a winner.
What are the lipsticks you always go back to?
