If I Could Only Wear 5 Lip Colours


I saw Chanelle Hayley's post 'If I Could Only Wear 5 Lip Colours' and found it to be a very interesting post, so much so I thought I'd do my own. I love experimenting with new lipsticks, whether it be liquid, lipstick, crayon or stains. I have quite a collection of different shades and types so it was quite a challenge deciding if I could literally only wear 5! But I did end up choosing 5! So let's read forward and see what I chose...

NYX Liquid Suede - Kitten Heels
I had to include a red lippy in this as it's such a classic statement and this is one of my absolute favourites. It's bright and beautiful and extremely pigmented and long lasting. A true winner.

Sleek - Shabby Chic
I'm always on about Shabby Chic, but it's such a wearable colour and works day or night. It's a gorgeous pale pink shade, which works as a pink nude. I absolutely adore it and Sleek's matte me liquid lipsticks are brilliant.

NYX Lip Lingerie - Embellishment
I've expressed my love for this liquid lipstick a few times here on the blog. It's a very distinctive shade and is set apart from the other ones I own. I think it's absolutely gorgeous and is a brown toned nude shade with a bit of a lilac look about it. I still need to collect more of these.

L'oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paint - Wuthering Purple
I had to include a purple shade as purple is my favourite colour and this particular liquid lipstick has been good to me and proved it's long lasting as well as being a gorgeous colour.

MAC - Honeylove
I was really struggling between a few for the final colour, I knew it had to be a nude shade but I couldn't quite pick one. It was probably between this and Sleek's Birthday Suit, but as I realised the rest of the ones I'd chosen were liquid lipsticks, I chose to pick MAC's Honeylove because even though it's a matte lipstick, it changes it up a bit! It's a gorgeous nude shade and so wearable.

So there we have it. My 5 shades/lipsticks I'd wear if I could only wear 5!
It was extremely tricky picking 5 as like I said, there's quite a few different liquid lipsticks that I love wearing. And thank you Chanelle for inspiring me to do this post!

Thank you for reading!

Love & hugs,

  1. You made some great picks! I used to love Sleek Shabby Chic but it's too drying for my lips now so I can't wear it anymore! I wish I could pull off a red lip but it never looks good on me if I'm going for a bold lip I always choose a purple toned one! If I were to do this I'd probably pick all liquid lipsticks as they're my favourite type of products but I do love my MAC lippie in 'Really Me!' Great post hun!

    1. Aw thank you for the comment and thank you for inspiring the post!! The purple is so good, I applied it before a night out, drank then lost it in my bag so couldn't reapply before leaving and it lasted the whole night from one application! It's so good! xxx
