It’s nearly the end of March so I thought it was time for my second lipstick of the month post. Last month I chose a liquid lipstick by Gerard Cosmetics (you can read the post here) and I still wear it all the time. As you might have guessed from the photo above the winner this month comes from one of my favourite brands for lipstick, MAC. A few weeks ago I went on a trip to Vienna with a couple of friends and while I was excited for the holiday, I was also excited about duty free shopping! I didn’t go to the MAC counter with any shade in mind, but after swatching
a few lots of shades I decided on Dubonnet. View Full Post
Before this purchase I hadn’t bought a MAC lipstick for a while. I think I convinced myself that they were too popular and I was just buying them because of the hype. However, I have now fallen back in love with MAC. Over the summer I was on the hunt for my perfect peachy nude. I never really found the shade and to be honest I forgot all about it. That was until I saw Shy Girl. I love a good daytime lipstick and Shy Girl is perfect. View Full Post
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.
No points for originality here, but it really is the perfect daytime shade. I have written a full review on Velvet Teddy here.

Last month I wrote about my first MAC purchase, a lipstick in the shade Spirit (here). I really loved it so I knew it wouldn’t be long before I bought another one. I was having a browse on the Debenhams website when I noticed they had 10% off beauty (they seem to do this quite often). How could I resist having a quick look at MAC? I obviously went straight to the lipstick section and after seeing that Velvet Teddy was in stock it took me about 10 seconds to press buy! So I think everyone has heard about this shade because it has been heavily linked with Kylie Jenner and those lips, but I thought I would do my own review and give my opinion on whether it is worth the hype.

This lipstick is actually my first MAC purchase. I had obviously heard loads about MAC by reading other blogs but I’ve always thought that £15.50 for a lipstick was a little expensive. I eventually gave in after reading countless good reviews and I am so glad that I did! The shade I went for was a pinky brown shade called Spirit. I think because I am quite pale it looks more brown on me, but it would look pinker on darker skin tones. View Full Post
