My Six Favourite Lip Colours Right Now

It was only the other month when I was sorting through all my make up that I remembered the love I have for my lipsticks. I've got quite a few in my collection and I thought today I'd share with you the lipsticks that I have been loving recently.

The first three lipsticks I have been loving are by NYX. In my local Boots store we only got a NYX counter last year and as soon as they did these were the first three items I picked up. These lipsticks are the Soft Matte Lip Creams and they feel so amazing on the lips. They aren't drying and they somewhat last as long as a lip cream does. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Addis Ababa bright pink shade and I was quite wary about picking this shade up as it's not what I usually go for. I'm a nude, red or a dark shade kind of girl but this shade really does work on my lips and with my skin colour. You can pick this up in any local drugstore which sells NYX for £6. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Stockholm This is the typical colour I would go for on my lips so of course I picked this up to add to my nude collection and I really do love it. It feels so soft on my lips and glides on so easy. It's the perfect nude for all year round.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Copenhagen I would usually wear this shade in the Autumn and Winter season as it's a pretty dark shade but it is one of my favourites colours to wear. I would say about this being a dark colour that it does seem to wear off easier than the other shades so needs to be topped up more regularly. 

These next three lipsticks are by MAC. I've heard a lot of people say lately that MAC lipsticks are becoming over rated but these 3 nudes are my 'go-to' lipsticks this time of year. Like a lot of people I picked up these shades from the pure fact that EVERYBODY was wearing these this time last year and I don't regret it one bit.

MAC Cosmetics - Whirl I'd been dying to try a brown-toned lipstick for so long but I was worried it going to cast on my teeth, you know when some lipsticks make it look like you've not brushed your teeth in about 5 years? I'm so glad that when I tried this lipstick that all my worries went away! This shade is perfect and it's priced at £16.50.

MAC Cosmetics - Twig This was my first eve MAC Cosmetics purchase and the lady in the shop recommended it to me. I was quite worried about it not being 'my colour' as I didn't pick it myself but as you can see I've worn it so much that the MAC logo has rubbed off! MAC's Satin finish is one of my favourite formulations from the brand because it contains a hint of sheen without it being too much.

MAC Cosmetics - Velvet Teddy Now Velvet Teddy is one of the most popular shades in my opinion and I just had to jump on the band wagon. It's a matte shade so it leaves no stains when having a drink or even kissing someone! Although it is a matte shade it's one of the most hydrating matte lipsticks I've tried. It also doesn't accentuate any dry patches on your lips. Brown lips aren't for everybody but I find that Velvet Teddy is a very unique shade as it has a slight red undertone to it and I think it can work well on everybody.

So that's it for today's post and I hope you enjoyed the read! Happy Sunday and I hope you all have had a fantastic weekend. I definitely have! I've just got back from picking my pumpkins. Let me know in the comments below:

Lots of love, Sami x
