National Lipstick Day is celebrated on the 29th of July and some retailers such as MAC are giving away free lipsticks!! So if your out and about today go get yourself one!!!
The lipstick is one of the most enduring and iconic pieces in any woman’s (or man’s) makeup kit. A flash of colour be it pink, peach or a vibrant red is all it takes sometimes to make you feel a little more confident in your own skin so in honour of this makeup staple swipe on some colour and be a total badass today!
My favourite Lipstick:
So in honour of National Lipstick Day here is a small collection of my most worn lipsticks
Starting us off from the left is the delectable Chanel Rouge Allure in the shade 104 Passion. This red is one of the nicest I have seen. The finish is smooth and satiny and is a pleasure to wear.
Next up is Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution in the shade Walk of Shame which is a sort of pinkish berry colour. This colour while not red is still a great shade for an evening out.
MAC Matte in the shade Mehr which is a dusky blueish pink and is perhaps the girliest shade out of my high-end lipsticks. Mehr is very wearable and a must have summer colour that would compliment denim cutoffs and any slinky little dress for day or night.
Back to Chanel now with the Rouge Coco collection in 434 Mademoiselle which may just be the most flattering colour ever, I think 99.99% of women (and men) could wear this shade and look flawless. With the name Mademoiselle, it evokes connotations of the young as it literally means Miss in French. So is this lipstick an elixir of youth for the lips, most certainly. Anyone no matter their age can swipe on this lipstick and spritz on some Coco Mademoiselle Perfume (my favourite perfume I own) and become their inner Coco Chanel.
My last two are from the fabulous Charlotte Tilbury which are both delightful nude shades. Firstly there is the Matte Revolution in the shade Very Victoria and then the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in the shade Penelope Pink which is similar but different in the fact that it’s a little lighter than Very Victoria and the fact that it’s more of glossy finish than matte. Both shades work exceptionally with a dramatically bold smokey eye or for a low key no-makeup makeup look.
