A month of lipsticks, January 31st 2013.

Hello lovelies, for the final post on my month of lipsticks I thought it would be nice to get  others involved and let them share with you all there favorite lipsticks! Here are the lovely girls that got involved.

The lovely Amy who I am always chatting away to on Twitter who owns this gorgeous blog who I have become very close friends with. She is an amazing woman.
Astor102 Catwalk Fuschia


This is probably a brand that many people haven't heard of but after trawling the Fragrance Direct website; I came across Astor lipsticks for 99p. This is from their Rogue Couture collection and is a gorgeous pinky purple colour, which is perfect for Autumn/Winter. It lasts for a good few hours and I find it doesn't smudge like alot of lipsticks. The lipstick itself is quite silky and highly pigmented, which I'm so pleased with. The colours are really bold, and you don't need to keep reapplying.

I love the shimmery effect that this lipstick has, it really helps to bring out the shine of the lips. As I have pale skin I think purple/pink lipsticks really help to bring colour to the face, especially the cheeks. I bought a few of the Astor lipsticks and they are great quality, especially for 99p.

 Have you ever tried Astor lispticks?

Russian Red is MAC Cosmetics No1 best selling red lipstick. Described as an intense blue toned red Russian Red is rich and striking in colour and luxurious in texture. The deep, classic hue of the red and the matte formula makes it the most flattering colour to wear and suits everyone whatever age or skin tone. 
So why I hear you say, is Russian Red my favourite lipstick in the whole wide world out of the many thousands or so I own? What I love most about Russian Red is how timeless and elegant it is, yet it's so easy to wear in day to day life. The fact it fits like a glove with every skin tone imaginable not to mention it being a basic necessity in practically every girl's make up bag. If you're yet to try this gift from above, what is it you're waiting for? The pigmentation is to die for, as is the wonderful non drying matte formula. All of these reasons whipped up together is what gives Russian Red the name of My Favourite Lipstick in my make up bag!

Although the majority of my lipsticks are made by MAC, the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in number 54 is my favourite lipstick because it has the most soft, gloss like texture without any sticky feeling. 

It’s easy to apply, with the most amazing glossy finish. It’s also the perfect ‘my lips but better’ colour and would be suitable for anyone. Although it’s expensive, I’ve owned this for well over 3 years and love it so much.

Much love,

I must admit, I'm totally in love with pinky, peachy lipsticks. My favourite lippy has got to be my Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Honky Tonk, which is a really pretty fruity peach colour. It works well as a day-to-day lipstick, and looks lush on a night out. It's so soft and creamy, and very buildable, and is definitely my number one go-to lipstick.

I am obsessed with lip products! The bolder the colour the better!
As we are approaching Spring, I wanted to try and move away from my typical red/purple lip colours and go a little more fresher!
On a shopping trip recently I spotted the Lasting lip stains by Collection. I was spoilt for choice on colour and ended up purchasing 'Flirt 3', which is a Rosy matte stain.
 I loved this colour however I wanted it a little bit more glossy!
I decided to experiment a little and applied Benefit's Cha Cha tint over it.
The results where amazing! It ended up working really well and being just the colour I was after!
I find the tints and stains last so much longer the lipsticks and think this is my 'go to' technique for the season!

Hii! It's @nikmakeupjunkie. 

My current favorite lipstick is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Showy.
I actually have a review of it on my blog here


Then lastly but defiantly not least the lovely Julie who owns this lovely blog
With a name like LippyLikes it will be no surprise to anyone that I love my lippy, so when I was asked to contribute to a Lipstick post , how could I say no? Deciding to say yes was no problem at all. The only problem for me was what lipstick to choose. I have a real penchant for bright, bold lipsticks. Readers of my blog, LippyLikes know that I love a strong lip and my love for Mac Rebel, So Chaud and Flat Out Fabulous is known to all. But when I was asked to pick a favourite, I quite controversially chose Mac's Honey Love. 

Why? Because it is my perfect nude, goes with anything and lasts all day! Whats not to love about Honey Love x

Also some lovely tweeters took part when I asked what there favorite lipsticks where...

Hope you enjoyed my month of lipsticks lovelies and you didn't find it too boring, I can't actually believe I didn't fail! Hope you all had a lovely start to the year in January and have many more happier months and adventures xxx
