August Lipstick Favourites

I feel like it’s been a while since I did a beauty post and since I’m a broke bitch (as per usual) I thought that I’d discuss some of my favourites at the moment. I own quite a few lipsticks (some would say too many) and I find that there’s some I favour more than others.

So this post is about the lipstick’s I’ve been loving at the moment. Some have been favourites for a while whilst others I’ve discovered recently. For each of the lipsticks I have taken a swatch photo and a photo of what it looks like on my lips (sorry some of the lip photos are a bit awkward, always feel a bit self conscious about my lips, I don’t know why. I feel like you get something different from seeing the swatch and on the lip so I’m braving it).


(This is my first attempt at anything flat lay related and I’m actually kind of happy with how this turned out, definitely going to keep practising this).

Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick 893 – Gone GreigeΒ 

This is one of the newer lipsticks I’ve purchased but I’m so in love with it. I’m wearing this most days at the moment as I love the colour and find Maybelline’s formula to be nourishing and not drying to the lips (the reason why you’ll find a lot of Maybelline’s colour sensational lipsticks in my list). My favourite thing about this colour is that it can be used for day or night and that it’s a nudey tone but has much more interesting shades in it. Definitely my number one favourite at the moment. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see I’m wearing this shade in a lot of my recent Instagram posts.

Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick 932 – Clay Crush


I bought this lipstick a couple of months back and fell in love with the shade immediately. It’s such a lovely rich nude colour that you can wear with anything. Again if you follow my Instagram you’ll see this feature in a lot of my posts too.

NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick – Teddy

When I first purchased this lipstick I wasn’t really a fan, It came out way darker on my lips than I had originally thought it was going to be and as I never used to wear really dark lipsticks I was a bit worried It made my skin look even paler BUT the more I used it the more I loved it. I’ve started to really like the colour and how unique it is, I usually wear this one on a night out but I’m really loving it now. (I just hate this photo of my lips so much – there’s something so awkward about taking a photo of just your lips).

Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick 965 – Siren in Scarlet

This is probably the one that I’ve had the longest, I purchased it quite a while back now but I’m still so in love with it. It’s my go-to red lipstick, I absolutely adore the colour and the brightness it adds to any look. There’s not a great deal of this one left but I have got a back up one in the same colour. I find this lipstick stays on when I’m drinking which makes it great for nights out, just love the way it makes my lips pop as well.

Rimmel 610 – Highflyer

I am a big fan of a pink lipstick and have to say this is definitely one of my favourite ones. The colour is more pinky/red than it’s showing on the picture but I love the way it looks on my lips. I find this lipstick stays really well and lasts all day, this is one I love to wear especially in summer as it’s such a nice pop of colour.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte lip colour – Seduction

This lip colour is so creamy and feels so great on the lips. I swear it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing anything on them most of the time but the colour is so beautiful. I’ve had this one for a while and nearly used all of it, it’s one that I find myself reaching for a lot of the time when I don’t want anything too heavy on. Love how it feels and looks when applied.

I actually really enjoyed writing this post and I hope you enjoyed reading this post and that I didn’t waffle on too much. Originally I was going to talk about another 2 lipsticks but I decided against it as these are my top 6 for sure and I feel like I’ve waffled one enough.

I’d love to hear what you think about this post and if there’s any of these lipsticks you’ve tried or would like to try in the future.

    lipstick is actually the only make-up I put on a regular basis so this was a good post for me. I like that you had a swatch on arm and lips. I’m liking the 893.
