2015 Favourites | Lipsticks

I have been trying to work out how to fit all my 2015 favourites into one post that was an acceptable length for you all to read. It's really been a massive dilemma. In the end I decided to split it up into a weeks worth of post, with each post focusing on my top favourites from each area. Kicking it off is my 2015 lipsticks...

MAC Rebel | If you know me, you know this is my go to lipstick. It is just me. It's one of the only lipsticks that I actually think suits me, and even if it doesn't I think I rock it and I feel killer when I wear it so that's all that matters. This beautiful berry bullet has been one of my favourite lipsticks since I bought it, and I will be repurchasing it every time I run out of it. I can't live without it's berry goodness, and truly incredible formula. After writing this up I seem to have misplaced this lipstick, I am praying I didn't leave it in a hotel over New Year, but it's looking that way... sad face.

MAC Diva | A gorgeous deep burgundy lipstick with the most perfect matte formulation ever. This lipstick does not budge all day long, it's usually what I wear to blog events and through all the cocktails, Diva always stays put. If I had to recommend a dark MAC shade to someone, who owned Rebel already, it would be this one.

Clinique Cherry Pop | If I'm wearing red and it's not the Maybelline pencil, then there is a high chance that this is on my lips. I wear this one the days I don't want such a bright in your face kinda red. It's the perfect deep cherry red shade, I can't quite explain it, it's not too dark and it's not too light. My perfect inbetween. It's so moisturising to apply to the lips, which obviously comes with the wear time being a bit crappy sometimes and reapplication is necessary, but for a colour like this I can put up with that. Liner is your best friend with this lipstick.

Olivia Palermo x Ciate in Praline | I first picked this up on a bit of a whim, I bought it for the packaging, not the lip colour. Never in a million years would I have gone for a brown toned nude, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put this on and I actually kinda made it work. Praline is a rosy brown based nude with a satin finish that lasts on the lips without a liner. If I had to pick a brown toned nude to wear all year, it would definitely be this one, I just seem to make this work like the others don't. Olivia Palermo and Ciate did good.

L'Oreal Julianne's Red | My go to summer red lipstick. This shade was worn constantly throughout the summer months, it's that perfect bright red pop that you want throughout the sunny weather. It looks flawless with a golden glowy makeup look, or if you're me and don't tan it also looks perfect on the palest skin ever. I feel like this is a shade anyone could rock, and with the creamy formula I think it's one every should have in their collection.                                          

MAC Impassioned | I'm not a pink person at all. Especially bright pink. I once had my bedroom decorated with hot pink wallpaper and I'm pretty sure it's put me off pink all together. I bought this lipstick on a whim and at first I really regretted my decision, but it's definitely grown on me. Impassioned is a bright fuchsia toned pink, it's an amplified finish so it's got a creamy, easy to apply formula but it just has that added brightness to it. This isn't a lipstick for the faint hearted, but I absolutely love it, especially during spring and summer.

Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencil in Light It Up | Ever since I bought this a few months ago, it's been on my lips constantly. Throughout December I didn't really wear any other lip product as this was just perfect for every occasion. It's easy to apply and easy to wear, it doesn't require a great deal of touching up and the colour pay off is brilliant. It has a matte finish, but it doesn't drag on the lips or dry them out at all. If you don't own any of the Colour Drama Pencils, I would definitely recommend picking some up, they're top of my list currently.

Burts Bees Lip Crayon in Hawaiian Smolder | Lip pencils seem to be making their way into my collection a lot more this year, and I am so in love with them. This offering from Burts Bees is a traditional deep pink shade, which applies to the lips without dragging at all, and dries to leave a matte finish. I love this for more natural makeup days, when I don't want to feel anything on my lips but I want a little bit of colour there. It does fade throughout the day, but it's what I expect from the thinner formulation. This is the perfect introductory lip crayon in my opinion.
