5 Lipsticks Worth Trying

The other day I did a poll on Instagram asking which post you would prefer to see next on my blog, it was a close one, but so many of wanted me to share my everyday go-to lip shades. In a similar post previously, I shared about deeper shades that you can wear through Autumn/Winter. Maybe these recommendations could last you through Summer?

With the beginning of endless sunshine and warmer months, how many of you are looking forward to the long awaited vacation? Maybe you can bring along one of these lipsticks with you while on holiday ;)

1. HERA SENSUAL AQUA LIPSTICK | #317 DELICATE LYCHEE

Hera recently released the Sensual Aqua Lipstick, which contains 40% water. When I first swatched the tester on my hand, I noticed how pigmented it was. But apply the product directly on your lips, and you can feel the difference the high water content makes. The lipstick glides over the lips so effortlessly, is moisturising and has a slight cooling sensation.

2. ETUDE HOUSE BETTER LIPS-TALK | #PK003 MOOD UP

This shade is a rosy pink that's rich and pigmented in colour, all you need is just one single swipe. The lightweight formula fills in fine lines/wrinkles leaving your lips feeling soft and gives a velvet finish. The lipstick also features a pale pink and gold packaging with a magnetic cap to prevent it from going missing in your bag.

3. COLOURPOP BLUR LUX | 21 QUESTIONS

21 Questions is a burnt orange-red shade, and applies on like a dream - silky and creamy. The formula creates a soft blurring effect and settles into a velvet finish. Doesn't hold up well though with oily food or drinks, but leaves behind a slight tint. The quality of the lipstick is amazing for the price you're paying!

4. COLOURPOP BLOTTED LIPS | VITAMIN SEA

I'm a sucker when it comes to Colourpop, I admit that. The blotted lip formula gives a soft diffused look, and dries down matte but never too dry or flaky. Vitamin Sea is a orange terracotta shade that I think works well for everyday wear.

My only gripe is that it applies on a little blotchy so you just have to be a little patient to blend it properly. However, once it dries it doesn't budge, which is great so you don't have to worry about touching up throughout the day.

5. MAC POWDER KISS | STAY CURIOUS

According to MAC, the Powder Kiss lipstick is a moisture-matte weightless lipstick that delivers a romantic blur of soft-focus colour. Fancy sentence phrasing aside, I'm so excited for this new formula brands have been releasing! It glides smoothly on the lip, and despite being a matte formula it's not drying or flaky at all. We all know how long-wearing most MAC lipsticks already are, this is no different.
