My Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks

I am a massive lipstick fan. I get more excited about buying a lipstick than I do any other beauty product. There are just so many different formulas and shades out there that I need to try! This does come with a problem though- I’m terrible at finishing a lipstick (I don’t think I’ve ever done it). I’ll use one a few times, put it in a bag and completely forget that I have it. I do however have a small collection that I wear regularly. These are the more neutral, daytime friendly shades and I’ll give you a rundown of my top 5 most used lipsticks. I have tried to represent the colour of the lipsticks accurately in the photos, but I would say they all look a tiny bit darker on the lips than the picture shows.

MAC Velvet Teddy (£15.50)

Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks- Mac Velvet Teddy Swatch and On Lips

No points for originality here, but it really is the perfect daytime shade. I have written a full review on Velvet Teddy here.

Lord And Berry Twistick in Must Have (£13)

Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks- Lord And Berry Twistick in Must Have Swatch and On Lips

This is the newest addition to my collection. It’s a combination of a lipstick and a lipgloss and the brown shade is perfect for daytime. It applies quite sheer but can be built up. For a glossy finish the wear time is pretty good and it’s comfortable to wear- it feels like wearing a lipbalm.

MAC Spirit (£15.50)

Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks- Mac Spirit Lipstick Swatch and On Lips

If you want to really go for the 90’s trend this shade is great. On me it’s quite a dark brown colour. I have a full review of Spirit here.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend (£15.50)

Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks- Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend Swatch and On Lips

I don’t wear many pink lipsticks, but if I do I always turn to this one. It’s not too bright but it is a bit pink to be a “my lips but better” shade. The formula is moisturising and creamy and feels lovely to wear.

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Minx (£19.50)

Top 5 Most Used Lipsticks- Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Minx Swatch and On Lips

The most expensive lipstick on this list and it’s also my favourite. The formula and the colour are gorgeous. It’s described as a warm satin rose shade and although it’s the darkest shade in my top 5, it’s still very wearable.

So those are my top 5 most used lipsticks. Have you ever tried any of these? Which lipsticks would make your list? I’d love to know!

  • I love the colour of ‘Minx’! It’s such a lovely shade, and it looks great on you! I also really like Velvet Teddy. I don’t tend to like nudes, but that one really is lovely! I should have expected that, though, everyone seems to love it!
