My Top 5 Lipsticks

 I just love lipsticks and if I think about it those were kinda my first 'beauty/makeup' purchase or addiction really I should say. I would literally buy one or two every payday or every time I went shopping. 

Of course it started off light with Rimmel, Maybeline and then progressed to MAC and then that was is. As my love of them increased my collection just kept multiplying until I got to where I am today. With so many lipsticks i'm forever buying new storage to hold them all in and they have to be organised in a certain way. So whenever I get a new one I have to start over (OCD issues to the max).

Nowadays, i'm obsessed with YSL, Dior, Chanel and Tom Ford just to name a few of my high end luxury make up buys. For lower end and budget effective i'm a sucker for Essence Cosmetics, Nyx Cosmetics and Dose of Colors to name a few. 

I thought i'd list my Top 5 that I seem to be reaching for, at the moment at least. 
You might find that they have something in common! 

I've tried to link them if they're available still as some of them sell out as soon as they go on sale!
Just to note these aren't in a particular order. 

1. Tom Ford's LipsandBoys collection in the shade Cary find here 

These are a limited edition collection and I've managed to get 3 shades but this is one of my favourites. Slightly different for me being a more pinky nude shade. Glides on the lips effortlessly and such an incredible colour. Highly recommend these and they're only £27 and super cute!

2. Dose of Colors in the shade Truffle find here
(This shade actually sells out super fast but i've linked where I purchased it in the UK- You can also get it direct from their website here where it's in stock currently the site is in the US)

I just love this shade I think it's the perfect nudey/brown and looks great with MAC lip liner Whirl. It's a matte liquid lipsticks and it dries great on the lips not too drying at all. It's £14.50 in the UK and $18 from their US official site which I think is around the kinda same price.

3. NYX Lingerie in the shade Bedtime Flirt find here

I literally couldn't wait to get my hands on some of this collection when I seen it had launched and I waited patiently for it to hit the UK and with the range being stocked at Boots online and soon to be stores I just had to get it! The colour is a-maze-ing and it glides on the lips. It's great for £6.50 which I personally think is an absolute steal for a liquid lipstick.

4. Kylie Jenner Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dolce K find here
Now these are currently like gold dust to get and you have to wait until the release which she leaves on her app before you're able to purchase one but if you are interested I posted not so long ago about how I managed to get mine, for some tips click here.

I was quite excited that i'd managed to get my hands on this, in fact I managed to get two as I got one in the shade Candy K too, but I think this shade just beats it slightly. I can't lie as if you've read my review on these already you'll know I was slightly disappointed as they're very drying on the lips and it can end up looking a bit nasty, but i've continued to use it and it's beginning to grow on me. I've personally found it applies a lot better and lasts a little longer if I apply some vaseline to the lips a little while before the product. I like the fact it comes with a matching lip liner as well and I use this quite a lot with other lipsticks.

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Abu Dhabi find here

This was one of the first NYX products I bought and it was recommended by a beauty blogger I follow on Instagram as I seen she had it on in one post. It smells like chocolate I find and it's soo soft on the lips when applied. It dries quite quickly and lasts quite a reasonable amount of time. It's one of my absolute favourites and go to shade on a daily basis. For £5.50 you can't go wrong either.
