You've heard of the crazy cat lady, well say hello to the crazy lipstick lady who can't stop carrying a handful of lipsticks in my handbag on a daily basis. To justify this extra baggage I like to carry around, I keep in mind those days when you have last minute change of plans, an impromptu dinner out or you just fancy a pop of colour to get you through the food shop.
For this post I just dived into my bag and these were the culprits that were filling up my make up bag. All five lipsticks I feel will be my most used this winter.
1: Charlotte Tilbury 'Red Carpet Red' has featured on the blog already and with that you can tell it's a good egg. Long lasting, easy to apply (but requires a mirror), and is such a nice classic red that looks great against pale skin.
2: Lipstick Queen "Medieval' is sheer and more of a tint than a lipstick really. This is definitely my go to quick slap something on my face colour and no need for a mirror and is super creamy and just awakens your face instantly.
3: Mac 'Dark side' granted is a hard one to apply but boy is this the perfect berry colour. Its great as you can just dab it into the lips and smudge out to get a light colour and can layer it up to get a more intense colour. Because its matte its very long lasting and is so perfect for the berry, vampy look that is everywhere right now.
4: Mac 'Heroine' is one of my newest lipstick purchases and one of my craziest shades. Some just wear a purple for Halloween but for me this can be worn whenever and for whoever. Being a matte again (can you see a pattern) its long lasting and perfect for dinner dates and lots of drinking and eating.
5: Maybelline 'Coffee Craze' was a reject from my mums last Boots trip. This has fast become my no make up make up look partner, mostly used at work. It's really creamy and just nudes out the redness in my lips. Not being that much of a long lasting lipstick its a nice one to have in your bag for emergency quite fixes.
Are you a lipstick carrier, lover, or own any of these?
