Top 5 Series - Drug Store Lipstick



I've decided to do a few mini series this year starting with top 5's. With work and a baby on the way I thought this may be the best way to get posts up still by scheduling them in advance with a clear posts in mind I can get it all ready! 

2015 was the year I fell in love with lipstick! I have always used them but never stepped outside my comfort zone until last year. I now have a ever growing lipstick collection mainly from the drug store as I am yet to take the plunge into higher end brands 

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick - £2.50 plus shipping 
Colour : 04 Matte Tease - Purchase
I picked this up in the states but it is available in the UK from Amazon. This is a beautiful rosy pink which I have found made the perfect transitional season lipstick shade to wear. Paired with a rosy blush I always get compliments on this shade. It is a bit drying so you do need a good lip balm but the colour pay off is unreal

Maybelline New York Colour Stay 14 Hour Lipstick Mega Watt - £6.99
Colour : 455 Burst of Coral  - Purchase
This is my favourite summer colour! I don't think I used much else last year and waiting for the sun to come out so I can use it again. I have a couple of these lipsticks and they smell so good! They are heavily scented so if you are not into that you may want to steer clear but for me it is an added bonus. This was a big step for me wearing this lipstick as you could see me coming when I am still around the corner. It is a beautiful coral with berry undertones and despite being basically neon it was so comfortable to wear and the staying power is the best I've seen in a long time

Maybelline New York Colorsensational Matte Lipstick - £6.99
Colour : 930 Nude Embrace & 975 Divine Wine  - Purchase
Ok, Ok this is a bit of a cheat as I couldn't decide between the two shades but they are the same brand and formula so classed as one right!? These are from the Colorsensational line in the black packaging, They are the most gorgeous matte shades I've ever seen. There are 6 in the range with a colour to suit basically everyone and these two shades are just my favourite. The Nude Embrace shade is perfect for my skin tone and is a dark nude which reminds me of the 90's or more recently Kylie Jenner. Divine Wine has been my go to evening winter nights lipstick a gorgeous blue toned berry red. It is a creamy formula and the best drug store Matte formula I have tried

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - £7.99
Colour : 720 Fire & Ice - Purchase
Again this took me a while to brave up and wear it,  I have two currently in my collection as I have fallen in love with it! It is a high maintenance lipstick with I need to be careful to conceal all redness on my face when I wear this and need to keep checking it throughout the day but it is beautiful neither the less. I believe this is one of Revlon's most iconic shade released back in the 1950's and was a game changer! It is one of the only reds I have found that will suit cool & warm skin tones and it needs more love! 

Rimmel London Kate Matte Lipstick - £3.99
Colour : 101 Soft Pink - Purchase
Now this is my most worn lipstick of all time so I couldn't not put it in! I think it is also my third tube! This is the most perfect classic pink for me to wear and soft enough for everyday wear. This was the first 'bright' colour lipstick I brought and I just adore it and will always repurchase this. It is my go to lipstick for my put together look when I actually rolled out of bed 5 minutes ago
