My Favourite Highend Lipsticks | MAC, Urban Decay | Pale and Interesting


At the moment I'm on my midterm and all there is to do is sleep and blog. It's only 10:00 and I'm already on my third post of the day! I think I'll have to increase my number of blogposts a week!

I love drugstore makeup, don't get me wrong, but there's something so special to me about indulging in a highend product. When you put the excitement beforehand of getting the product together with the service you get in the shop and the happy buzz you get, it's just brilliant. Maybe it's just me, though.

In case you hadn't already gathered, today I want to show you my favourite highend lipsticks. My collection of still quite small but it's growing and favourites stand out to me immediately.

This lipstick is all I need in my life. I love brown nude shades and this one is the perfect one for me. I got it when I was in London so it's like a little memento of the trip. The formula is so moisturising and is not dry at all. It is super pigmented and suits so many skin tones. The formula is creamy and has a shiny finish.

I wear this so regularly that I would repurchase it if I ran out. It worth the money without a doubt.

My only problem with this product is that it is very soft and tends to lean if you're not careful. I also found that, unlike many lipsticks, if you twist the lid around while it is on, the lipstick winds up into the lid and smushes into the lid. I found this out the hard way.

MAC always take the bacon when it comes to lipsticks. The quality is amazing and has so many good features. 

When I bought Russian Red I was doubtful that I would wear it enough but I proved myself wrong. I wore this to last Wezz and it stayed on all through the night without having to be reapplied. Everyone was asking "What is that lipstick, it hasn't budged all night". 

I cannot stress enough how longwearing this lipstick is. The colour is a gorgeous bright red. The blue undertone makes your teeth look really white!
This is my perfect red lipstick and from what I've heard, it suits all skin tones. I would recommend exfoliating and priming your lips before you apply this lipstick because it can attract attention to dry parts of your lips.

have yet to suss out why this  lipstick is called Brave because nothing about it suggests anything daring that requires courage. 

Regardless of that, it is a beautiful pinky nude that has been in my makeup bag for a long time now. This is my perfect daytime lipstick and will compliment a simple look or a stronger look. The quality (while not quite as longlasting as Russian Red) is much the same as the other MAC lipstick I discussed.

What's your favourite lipstick?
