Top 5 | Drugstore Lipsticks

Today I thought I'd do another post in my 'Top 5' series, and it's going to be my top 5 favourite drugstore lipsticks. I really love all these lipsticks and I'll tell you why more in depth when I talk about them individually. I'll also include my favourite shades and swatches of them so you know what colour they are and what they look like.

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche exclusive Reds / Nudes
I think I can honestly say that these lipsticks are my all-time favourite drugstore lipsticks, I love the consistency, the colours, the packaging, everything about these lipsticks I love. They last so long on my lips, especially the red ones, and you literally only have to touch up a couple of times a day if you're out and about. My favourite shade from the Red collection is Blake's Red, I've actually done a blog post specifically on this lipstick which you can find here. I love the colour I think it's the perfect red for me. My favourite shade from the Nude collection is Julianne's Nude, I don't know why I love this one out of all of them but it's the one I've been reaching for most.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick
I really like this lipstick because it goes on so smooth and does not dry your lips out at all, in fact it feels quite moisturising. The only thing about this lipstick is that it's not very long-lasting and you have to reapply it multiple times throughout the day. My favourite shade is Kiss Me Coral and it's a really beautiful orange shade which I can't wait to wear in the spring time. I only have a few of these but I am in need of some different colours because they are amazing!

Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick / Matte Lipstick
These lipsticks are very highly pigmented and one swipe over the lips is enough, although I usually do more because that's what I like to do. I also think these lipsticks smell really nice, it's not fragrance-y but it's subtle and lovely. They don't dry your lips, they're very comfortable to wear and feel very silky. My favourite shades are the 107 because well, it's a beautiful wine red colour and it's amazing for autumn/winter, although I will wear it all year round because I love it. Another favourite of mine is the 08, it's a muted rosy-brown and it looks so nice on, it sort of makes my lips look bigger which I am kind of liking right now.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick
I love the creaminess of the formula and it does not dry my lips out at all, especially in the winter months. Tantilizing Taupe is my favourite go-to lipstick shades, it's a gorgeous nude with pink tones running through it. On me it lasts about 2-3 hours so it's definitely not long lasting and you have to reapply it throughout the day but that's not a bad thing because you get that with so many lipsticks nowadays that it's not a surprise when you look in a mirror and see that your lipstick has rubbed off!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick
This lipstick is a nice and soft creamy lipstick, it's not as creamy as some but I like using it as it kind of acts like a lip balm but adds a bit of colour also. Choosing my favourite shade of this was so hard but at the moment it's Rose Tweed which is a pink that is quite subtle and not too bright. The staying power could be better but it does not settle into any cracks on dry lips. I'm not sure about the packaging because it looks sort of cheap but a lot of people loved this lipstick so I just bought it and I'm glad I did because it is amazing.

    The Color Palette

  2. I have Julianne's nude and I love it. I've been eyeing up Blake's red for a while but wasn't sure if I would suit such a bright red as I usually stick to darker/more burgundy shades. I have Kate Moss 107 but haven't seen 08 before. It looks so pretty!
