My Top 5: Lipsticks

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 54 Boy, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 34 La Raffinée, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine 13 Pink in Paris, MAC Lustre Cut a Caper, MAC Lustre Fire Sign.

post signature I thought i'd turn 'my top 5' into a bit of a series because it allows me to round up and share my favourite products with you. I am not a huge lipstick wearer but I really think it adds something to a potentially dull, neutral look. I never go for crazy colours and I stick to what suits my skin tone (olive). High end lipsticks are my kryptonite and I cannot resist the beautiful packaging.



Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 54 Boy

This is the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 54 Boy. The staff in Sephora are so persuasive-not that it takes much- and I was convinced that I couldn't live without this lipstick. Its quite sheer with very subtle shimmer. It's the perfect pinky nude!

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 34 La Raffinée

This is the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 34 La Raffinée. The packaging of this lipstick is beyond luxe, and who wouldn't want a lipstick with a James Bond-esque opening system. Its matte but not drying and is a beautiful dusky pink. It doesn't last that long but I'm happy to whip it out of my handbag and reapply at every opportunity. This is my old and rather cringey review of this lipstick if you're interested.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine 13 Pink in Paris

Possibly the most beautiful lipstick ever made is the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine in 13 Pink in Paris. It smells like watermelon and is the only pinky pink lipstick that I feel comfortable wearing. See my more in-depth review here

MAC Lustre Lipsticks Cut a Caper & Fire Sign

MAC are well known for their lipsticks and rightly so. The subtle vanilla scent and the colour longevity makes these very collectible. My two favourite shades are Cut a Caper & Fire Sign and i'm not sure if they are part of the permanent collection *sob*.
