My Favourite Lipsticks


To start off this blog I’d thought to pay a homage to it’s namesake – lipsticks!
So here are my 3 favourite lipsticks year round, but especially for spring. These are all luxury items because what is better than whipping out some luxe packaging from your bag? Nothing I tell you.


None of my loves are very rare or unheard of but they are each an utter beauty.
Chanel Le Rouge Coco Shine in Boy – the ultimate “my lips but better” shade. Sheer with a hint of sparkle all in a moisturising formulae. A slight hint of a purpley taupe runs through this nude pink IMHO.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Fuchsia in Rage  a Lisa Eldridge recommendation that made everyone go out and hunt this down, boy am I glad I did. Not only is the package gorgeous but so is the shade. A sheer bright pink that pulls a purple-blue this makes your teeth look whiter while other more orange/yellow based fuchsias make them less so. This is awesome blotted on for a light stain or layered on to pack a colourful punch.

Burberry Lip Cover in Ruby – A last minute purchase that I stumbled upon in New York while feeling a bit down that my vacation was coming to an end. A great deep red that’s not too vampy or too bright but rather lands perfectly in the middle. It’s not a matte red lip so it’s a bit more wearable and it feels nice and nourishing (I’m looking at you MAC Ruby-Woo).
