Intimidating Lip Coloursđź’•

Every season, I change up my makeup. In terms of lipsticks, I tend to go for brighter colours in the Spring and Summer, and keep my dark, vampy colours for Autumn and Winter. A few years ago, I went mad buying different lipsticks - almost every time I went shopping I bought something new - so now I'm left with a collection, full of some whacky colours, which I am quite afraid of. My aim for Summer this year is to experiment more with bright, bold colours, and make them work.

Lancome Matte Shaker in Yummy Pink || £20 || Read more here - You might recall the craze over these little lip colours. First, it was their original juicy shakers. Then, they launched their matte shakers. To say the least, I was right on that bandwagon. And I'm glad I did. Their matte shakers, in my opinion, are by far better than the juicy shakers. The pigment is much bolder, the colour selection is better and the formulation works better. I own two; a red one, and a pink one (as photographed). It's quite a bright, bubblegum pink, which I am intimidated by. As I'm so pale, I'm afraid that it won't compliment my skintone, and that it would wash me out a bit. 

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lipstick in Heroine || £9.99 || Read more here - When Maybelline sent over their matte ink range, I think they purposely chose all of their "out there" shades for me. Out of the four, I do think this one scares me most. Not only because it's orange, but because of it's vibrancy. I'd say these are liquid lipsticks, and I find them tricky to work with purely because I haven't a lot of experience in wearing them. The pigmentation is uber strong, so I find I need to be very precise in applying them. Orange isn't a colour I ever really wear, but to me, it's a beautiful colour and just signifies Summer to me.

Maybelline Vivids Color Sensation in Hot Plum || Discontinued || Read more here - I used to love this lipstick, and now I don't ever reach for it. Purple lipstick I used to love, I alternated between this one and an MUA one. Now, you're lucky if I even wear a nude lipstick some days. I remember being obsessed with how easy these are to apply, they just glide on because they're so creamy, and no need to worry about them smudging. It does have the tendency to fade whilst eating or drinking, but what lipstick doesn't? Sometimes, I used to walk about the place with this being the only makeup on. It was truly loved, and I need to remember how much I adored it to get me back into using it again.

Makeup Revolution Lipstick in  || £1 - I love the variety of lipsticks that Makeup Revolution (MUR) sell, and because of their cheap price tags, it means you can experiment to your hearts content, and won't have splashed the cash out on something you might hate. I have some absolute die-hard favourites from MUR, then others are just random shades I fancied trying, which is exactly what the above lipstick is. It's a coral shade, with a hint of pink and a bit of red, unusual and different to the Maybelline lipstick from earlier. This lipstick is really creamy, so could possibly melt in the tube and smudge a bit whilst on your lips. To me, this is a holiday lipstick. I don't know what it is, but I think of abroad when I look at it. With the current heatwave here in Scotland, I think now might be an ideal time to give it a bash.

Those four are my main scares when it comes to lipstick. Trust me, I do have more, but these ones top the charts. 



  1. Love the colours and tones of these lipsticks, they're all so summer appropriate!

  2. I've really been experimenting with bold lip colours recently. I've been loving the Jeffree Star Cosmetics liquid lip in Cherry Wet- it's such a gorgeous summery shade! That Maybelline lipstick is screaming my name mind:)
