Lipstick Update

Hi there my lovelies,

Just a quick update on my quest to fall in love with lipsticks. I was sooo good this week and wore a lipstick every single day which I am delighted about and over the week have found at lease one lipstick I am in love with. So here is how I got on.

Sunday 17 - I started strong and wore MAC Up the Amp which for me is quite a bold colour but it went well with what I was wearing. I really liked the consistency of this it was real creamy on my lips and there was even a nice taste off it so I really like this colour. I got this when I did a back to MAC a few weeks ago as up to now I would never pay that much for a lipstick. I loved the texture of this so much that I am gonna invest in a nice nudey colour this week.

Monday 18 - I used Lacura (Aldi) Lippie in 431 which is a toned down version of Up the Amp. I find these lippies to be really good quality they application is quite similar to MAC if I am honest the only problem is that a lot of the shades are mostly browns which I am not so into.

Tuesday 19 - I wore the lipstick that I have the longest, Rimmels Asia. It is that old I have no idea what kind of lipstick it is :) It is a really nice nude/pink with a hint of brown. I do like this lipstick and have worn it down quite a bit and to be honest when it is gone I probably will be re-purchasing it. It's got a great consistency and colour pay off.

Wednesday 20 - Wednesday's choice was ELF's regular line lipstick in Fantasy. I would never have picked this colour in a shop but on the website it didn't look as brown as when it arrived. When it arrived it was sooo disappointed with the shade but when I tried it on it really suited my skin tone so I decided to give it a whirl and I really liked the colour pay off etc as well.

Thursday 21 - I went to work wearing Rimmels Asia again but when I came home at lunch time there was a lovely little parcel waiting for me which had some goodies that I got in Charli...'s blogsale and one of the items was ELF's Mineral Lipstick in Ripe Rose. This has to be my new favourite lipstick. It is the perfect shade of red for daytime. I love it and the consistency, application and pay off from this lipstick and will def be investing in more of these. I went down town on Thursday evening and made the most of Boots 3 for 2 and invested in a 17 lipstick in Beehive.

Friday 22 - Excited by my new purchase I wore my new Beehive to work in the morning but I don't think I am getting on too well with this lipstick and thankfully I had my Urban Decay Buzzkill in my bag so I ended up changing lippies by about 12.00 and wore Buzzkill for the rest of the day.

Saturday 23 - I had to pop into town in the morning so I decided to wear ELF's regular lipstick in Classy as I had quite a colourful eye going on and this just toned it down a bit. I wore classy for the rest of the day. I do think I will be getting a few more of ELFs regular line lippies as they are so good.

Sunday 24 - Today was my other half's birthday so I got all dolled up in case we ended up going somewhere nice and was wearing a moss coloured eye so I went with ELF's mineral in Ripe Rose again. As the day went on we decided to get a Chinese for dinner with his folks so I made a quick dash home to change my clothes and swapped my lip from Ripe Rose to 17 Beehive to make my make up more neutral for my new jeans and sweater combo :).

MAC Up the Amp, Lacura, ELF Fantasy, ELF Classy, ELF Mineral Ripe Rose, 17 Beehive, Rimmel Asia

So for the rest of this week I am on my holidays and have a little spending spree planned for Tuesday. I am hoping to get a nice new nude from MAC as I don't think I really like Beehive. Hopefully one of the MAC ladies will help me out.

So my lovely ladies, if you know of any lippies you think I should be trying please let me know because I really really want to have a nice selection of lippies.

Thanks honeys
