Famous Five Lipsticks

Starting From The Left-

I've been using many different shades of lipstick throughout last year and this new year, I thought today I'd share with you all, my famous five hahaha (this is just the start of many top five makeup/beauty items) I use lots of different lipsticks all the time, everything ranging from a nice matte to a very pretty nudey peachy pink, and a vampy red here and there. The lipsticks I've chosen are all drugstore to high end ones that you can get from Boots or Topshop, Superdrug ect (for those of you that aren't from the uk, boots is a massive drugstore shop where you can get anything from lip balms, to nappies, to foot cream, which seems a bit strange as to why they called it boots when they don't infact sell boots). Today I wanted to share with you all my famous five, these are ones that I've used quite a lot or ones that I've really enjoyed using ect. I've add a mixture of highend and high street & drugstore, but these are my favourites and my what I call classics!

Let's kick things of first with Revlon Colourburst Lipstick/Lip-bullet In the shade Sultry - It's a beautiful berry undertoned red, it's gorgeous it's not as intense as my rimmel shade, it's SO creamy and feels beautiful and moisturising on the lips (considering it's a matte), It's super pigmented it's unreal, I don't feel the need to ever re-apply this throughout the day as it last pretty much all day which is fantastic value as it's just over £7

Next up & this will come as no surprise to you that my 2nd famous five is a YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Beige Charnel NO.1 - This is currently my top favourite as I've been using it so much over the past couple of weeks, it's a really neutral nude lip, it's simply stunning and gorgeous, it glides onto your lips like silk and it's so moisturising and just really pretty, I do feel quite special whipping this little beauty out of my handbag, I've received quite a few compliments on this particular shade, I've had lots of people asking me "what lipstick are you wearing it's gorgeous...". I love the quality of YSL lipsticks they are just worth every penny and something that I'd highly recommend. £25+

Rimmel London By Kate Moss in 107 - This is one of my most favourite drugstore lipsticks I own it's this gorgeous deep vampy berry red, it's just stunning I wore this a lot throughout November/ December and it must be one of my favourites as I always seem to be repurchasing it, this has a matte finish to it. I love the consistency and how long it last (again pretty much all day) and the colour pigmentation is just out of this world. If you're after a decent drugstore lipstick I highly suggest you taking a little wander over to the Rimmel Counter as they are good quality, they have an array of colours, high end look without the high end pricetag.

Topshop Petal Lipstick - This is much more of a beigey creamy nude, it's still just as beautiful but a slight milky tea colour, I love topshop lipsticks and their makeup range in general, they are really good quality and again great products at fantastic prices, this one isn't cakey and feels really light, great staying power and at £8 they are bloomin' good for highstreet.

And finally is my teeny tiny Burberry Kisses Lipstick in Nude Beige NO.1* - I use this when I'm wearing more of a natural makeup look, it's really creamy and quite a neutral shade it's ever so slightly like the Topshop Nevada lipstick except this one has more of a heavier price tag much like YSL, It's beautiful and one that I use quite a lot especially in the spring/summer.

And those are my current famous five I will be doing a series of famous fives, let me know in the comments what are your 'famous five' as I love hearing from you guys and love hearing product recommendations!
