When it comes to my everyday face, one thing I can take or leave is lipstick. Somedays I love to slap it on and other days it just really doesn’t enter my mind. But with the current nude lipstick trend, it’s definitely something I try to do more.
There seems to be a new formula, finish, colour or gimmick coming out every five minutes and as someone who isn’t into getting all of the latest lip products, I wanted to share my classic, fail-safe shades that I go back to time and time again.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
I don’t need to tell you about the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s, there was a point when they were absolutely everywhere! It’s not your average liquid lipstick, the formula has a slightly moisturising quality which means it’s not quite as hardy as others but isn’t at all patchy either. Stockholm is such an easy to wear shade, a soft, peachy nude colour and for £5.50 you really can’t go wrong!
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Adrienne
This is the most recent addition to my current lipstick wardrobe and was inspired by The Anna Edit’s love of it. It literally goes with any makeup look you have going on and is so easy to apply! It’s pigmented but not too pigmented and moisturising without being too sticky.
Smashbox Matte Lipstick in Legendary
Since Smashbox went wild and released 120 different shades of lipstick, I think this shade has been discontinued. But when I used to work in my local branch of Boots this was my everyday lipstick which seems a bit insane to me now because it is so red! It’s still my go-to red though, as a pale person this seems to be just the right shade. I think it’s more blue toned which might not work for some people but I fill in my lips with a red lip liner first and pop this on over the top and it just works.
What are your go-to lipstick colours? Are there any that I’m missing or need to try? Let me know!
