I don't think I've left the house in the last five years or so without putting on some sort of lip colour. It's so true when they say putting on lipstick is an instant pick-me-up. For me, it completely changes my mood. Without it, I don't feel ready to tackle the day. I don't feel 'ready'. It's funny, I used to avoid lipstick at all costs when I was younger, in fear of drawing attention to myself. But now, I can't live without it. Bright lips and simple eye makeup is pretty much my everyday go-to look. It's easy and it's fun.
Over the years I've become a bit of a lipstick-oholic, trying every new Maybelline shade there is. They're probably one of my go-to brands for a vibrant, long-lasting and non-drying lipstick. Plus they're great value. But don't get me wrong, my YSL lipstick pictured above has to be my all-time love. It's expensive, but trust me it's SO worth it. My collection has certainly grown but the above lipsticks are the shades I reach for the most and keep repurchasing. They're my tried and tested, all-time faves!
I hope you found this post useful and I've inspired you to try some new shades. I'd love to know what your favourites are! Share in the comments below.
