My Top 8 Lipsticks!


Today I'm going to show you my top 8 high-street/drugstore lipsticks because there so affordable and i just loooove them! 

Left to right: 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick - Day-Glo, 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Beehive, MUA lipstick - Shade 11, 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Peace, L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks - Sweet Berry, ELF lipstick - Gipsy, Revlon  Colorburst Lipbutter - Tutti Frutti, Avon Lipstick - Cranberry

17 Supreme Shine Lipstick - Day-glo: This is my favourite pink shade from my lipstick collection, just because its so bright and daring. The pigmentation is absolutely great and they are super creamy. It's actually more brighter in real life than it seems in the picture, because it is so bright I'd normally be afraid of wearing lipsticks like this - but this is so versatile you can defiantly sheer it down.  I would say that the lasting power is ok, you could probably get 2-3 hour wear out of it, 3 hours at the max. Overall it's a lovely lipstick and it's available from boots and they retail for £4.99.

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Beehive: I love love love love love this lipstick. Mine is completely battered to say at least, because its so creamy and glossy mine melted in my bag and I tried to save it but i failed..haha! Mine is defiantly on its last legs! The formula of these lipsticks is so lovely, they glide on you lips and they work as a sheer lipstick/lip gloss, i defiantly agree with the name, they are super shiny! This colour is a lovely peach/pink toned nude..if your any darker than my NC30 skin tone i don't think this wouldn't suit you, i would think it would just wash you out. The only negative thing i have to say about this lipstick, is i absolutely hate the packaging, i think it looks so cheap and tacky but other than that its a great lipstick! These are available from boots and retail for £4.59.

MUA Lipstick - Shade 11: This is by far my favourite and most used lipstick, not forgetting it's the cheapest! MUA is a great affordable brand which is exclusively available at superdrug. Now were do i start with the lipstick, for me this is my perfect colour. This is actually my 2nd one of these and I'm almost out *note to self: must buy a back-up!* The formula is super creamy and these lipsticks glide on like a dream, even though they don't have the best lasting power, you really can't complain for one pound! Its extremely pigmented and i hope MUA never discontinue this shade! MUA lipsticks are available from superdrug and they retail for £1!

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Peace: I'm not going to say to much about this lipstick because its the same as beehive besides this is a pink. Its a lovely shade and i love how glossy it makes your lips appear, not to mention they keep your lips moisturised too, so no lip balm needed! Mirror Shine Lipsticks are available from boots and they retail for £4.59.

L'oreal Caresse Lipstick - Sweet Berry: These lipsticks, i would say are in between a lip balm and a lipstick. They're quite sheer and they are extremely moisturising. According to L'Oreal, Rouge Caresse lipsticks have a lightweight formula and soft texture that glides on the lips and gives them luminous shine, I agree with every one of them. They are really lovely and I love this shade, it defiantly appears more brown in the tube than it does on the lips, i find on the lips it comes out more berry-ish. L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks are available to buy from places such as Boots, Superdrug, Tescos, Asda etc. They retail for £7.99.

ELF Gipsy: I absolutely love this lipstick, they are so ridiculously cheap too. The pigmentation of it for the price is amazing and not to mention they lasting powder is fantastic.  The colour is a gorgeous bright fuchsia. If you’re not a fan of this colour, they have an amazing colour selection. Even though the swatches on the site aren’t brilliant, I’d recommend searching for swatches through the google! My favourite thing about this lipstick is defiantly the price; it’s only bargainous £1.50….crazy! Another thing to mention is the scent, normally cheap lipsticks have a horrible plastic scent but this smell’s beautiful, so fruity. I couldn’t recommend ELF lipsticks enough. The lipsticks are by far my favourite things from ELF. 

Revlon Lip Butter - Tutti Frutti: I am in love with the revlon lip butters, not only are they super moisturising and so nourishing, the glide on my lips. My favourite thing about this lip butter is the pigmentation, its like a balm but its so pigmented and it has a great colour pay off. Lip Butters have a divine consistency that’s really creamy, slick, and easy to apply, but it often comes at the expense of wear..but because it is such a lovely product, I don't mind having to reapply it. I love how bright Tutti Frutti is and when you wear it with a natural face of make-up it defiantly makes all the difference.

Avon Lipstick - Cranberry: This is another lipstick which I love wearing, in the tube I'd never of thought it would be my kind of colour until i tested it out on my lips and I love it so much. This lipstick glides onto my lips and leaves a glossy finish and lasts on the lips for around 2 hours before you need to reapply. Another great thing about this lipstick is you can really sheer it down by applying it with a finger and tapping it into the lips, when you want a more natural and subtle lip. These lipsticks are defiantly worth checking out on the website.
