A Week in Lipsticks

I’ve seen these posts floating around for a while and I decided to give it ago!  These are the lipsticks that I have worn throughout the day.

NYX | Zurich

After including this in my ‘The Perfect Spring Lip Colours‘, I really wanted to wear it, as I will admit that I had kind of forgotten about it, until it came to doing that post. Zurich is a rosy nude with coral undertones which is absolutely stunning; especially for this time of year! I normally struggle with matte lip products, but this goes on like a dream and it is extremely light, so you forget that you have a lip colour on!

Too Faced | Chocolate Milkshake

I love the Too Faced Melted Lipstick and this one from the chocolate collection is my all time favourite. This is such a beautiful nude shade, as it is a light medium peach with a warm undertone. I do find this settles into lines after a few hours, but other than that it wears really well. It applies evenly and has a creamy finish.

Urban Decay | Backtalk

Another mention in my ‘Perfect Spring Lip Colours‘ post. Backtalk is a mauve nude pink that many people seem to love. It is a comfort matte finish, so think Satin. It is lightly hydrating and wears well. I went out for dinner wearing this, and it lasted really well until I ate a sandwich, but other than the sandwich it did great! It also doesn’t leave that ring around your lips; it fades evenly.

MAC | Twig

I must admit that I was going to wear Angel, but I didn’t want to include another lipstick from the other blog post. Twig is a warm mauve with a satin finish. Twig looks matte, but feels creamy and light weight. This also lasted all day!

ColourPop | Lumiere

This colour is my new favourite, I paired it with the matching lip liner and the finish is gorgeous. Lumiere is a dusty mauve pink with a matte finish. It is such good value for money, as it costs $5, it’s just a shame it’s American and costs an arm and a leg to get here. It doesn’t last very well through eating and drinking, but you can’t complain at $5.

There is my week in lipstick, and yes I have only done five days, as I haven’t worn makeup for seven days in a row! I also need to switch things up a bit, as there is clearly a theme here.

What are your favourite everyday lipsticks?

Thank you for reading!

    I love my NYX in London (such a great shade) and you are right about how light they are too! I also love Mac’s Mehr and one of Stila’s tinted lip balms because they are so moisturising! x


    • 10th April 2017 / 9:00 pm

      I don’t have London, but it looks stunning! They’re so nice aren’t they?! Mehr seems like such a stunning colour! Ah I must look into the Stila lip balms!xx

    All of these are such gorgeous shades. I need to start wearing different shades as I currently just wear the same every day as it’s easy and I know it’ll last me all day! I have some lovely ones in my collection I need to use more.

      Thank you! I’d say switching it up is fun, but it turned out I wore practically the same shade most of the time haha! It’s definitely worth going through your collection and pulling some different ones out!xx

    I love all of the brand of lippies you picked out! I love the staying power of the Too Faced lippies – the colors are so pigmented =)

      Thank you! The Too Faced ones are so good, it is definitely worth spending that little bit extra!xx

    • 12th April 2017 / 2:16 pm

      It’s bad that I didn’t even realise until I swatched them for this post! Definitely going to change it up a lot more now! Backtalk is such a stunning colour!xx

    Nyx Zurich is such a beautiful shade, I think I should go for some shopping very soon, haha. Now I’m waiting to get my first order from Colourpop, so I can finally try the famous Lumiere.

    PS: I love your blog, so I’ve just followed you on BL.

    • 15th April 2017 / 9:10 pm

      It is stunning, but nobody seems to talk about it haha! Ah I love ColourPop, and I’m sure you’ll love Lumiere! They do such gorgeous bits! Thank you lovely, I’ve followed you back!xx

    These are all really pretty! I have the Nyx one in Stockholm and I love it. Also came across the Urban Decay one earlier this week and it seemed very spring-y. 🙂
