2013 Favourites: Lips!


Another really difficult category for me being as I have so many lipsticks which I love and adore.  They may look a little similar in the photographs below but I assure you they are different!!



Sleek’s Barely There Lipstick: I’ve mentioned this lipstick so many times on my blog and YouTube channel before because it’s my favourite lipstick of all time.  It’s peachy, pink, nude tones compliment my skintone, giving me enough colour for daily wear.  This retails at under £5 as well which is so affordable. I hope they never, ever discontinue this.

MAC’s Sushi Kiss Lipstick: I own way too many orangey peach lipsticks but this is my favourite. It was released in the Orange MAC collection early in the year and my good friend Emma picked it up for me as it sold out so quickly!  This is a vibrant shade and doesn’t go with all outfits so when I wear it I tend to dab it on lightly over lipbalm!

MAC’s Morange Lipstick: This has been my go-to red lipstick for the past two years; If I EVER want to wear a red it’ll be this.  Again, it’s a super vibrant orange based red but it’s super pigmented and smells delicious.

Kiko Glow Touch in Ginger Twist: This is practically the same as Sleek’s Barely There but in pot form which can be used on either lips or cheeks for a healthy glow.  Again, this smells delicious and is really pigmented for a balm so I suspect it’ll last me forever.

Rimmel Apocalips in Luna: Rimmel launched their Apocalips’ in 2012 and they have carried on being a joy to wear throughout 2013.  Luna is my favourite of the original bunch (they have just added 4 new shades to the range – blog post coming soon) and that’s right, you guessed it, it’s another peach!  Full review with swatches here – link.

There we have it for lips - stay tuned for the final post of my 2013 favourites, coming up tomorrow: eyes!

What was your favourite lipstick of 2013?

  4. All very orange-based, huh, pretty :-) My favorite of 2013? Tough one... Maybe the Lollipops lipstick in Jolie Poupee, a pretty raspberry pink.

  5. Mine was Ruby Woo or Revlon's Mauve it over

    Can't believe how creamy Revlon's is and it's the perfect coral/nude.

    Ruby Woo is fantastic and my go to red, also it's so drying so if I'm not wearing that, then I wear Revlon's Really Red.

  12. Hi Katie :)

    I really like the Mac Sushi Kiss lipstick, I have a very similar colour and loved wearing it this summer. As for the Apocalips, wow, I must've been blinded by all other lipsticks because this is the first one I've seen or heard about. It looks really interesting though so might have to pick one up!
    Really love all of your blog posts and I'm on your blog daily because I love it so much! xxx

  23. I definitely have to say my favorite lipstick of 2013 was the Kate Moss line for Rimmel in number 10. The color is a gorgeous red, the lipstick is creamy, pigmented, and long lasting. It also smells super, super delicious (musky and cinnamon-y, rather than fruity like most of the other Rimmel lipsticks currently).

    Love your blog! I just found it recently and I've been really enjoying reading and watching your youtube videos! :)

  24. It looks like you have a thing for orange lip products! I love the Apocalips from Rimmel they are great. I have it in the colour Out of This World and I love it! I also love my Nyx Round Lipstick in Pumpkin Pie which is a great everyday nude colour. They are so creamy and last quite a good time before you need to reapply them.

  33. I really think I'm going to end up buying MAC Morange soon! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it so much in 2013! I think my favorite has just been MAC lipsticks in general (I've bought 4 this year).

  38. They are all so pretty, I know what you mean by saying theirs a slight difference to these lipsticks and that they're not all the same haha. I own about 3 red lipsticks and I always find a difference in all of them.x

  44. Im not much of a peachy fan myself but these shades look lovely, I tend to stick with pinks as I know they suit my skin tone I feel as if peachy shades wash me out, but my new years resolution is to say yes more and be more adventurous, so I may give these ago!

    Lovely post!

  45. I'm dying to see you a dark red or a pillarbox red. Lipstick is the only makeup item I can really wear so I have about 20 of them. I do like the idea of your staple though, I go for colours rather than nudes so I will check out a selection of those

    ReplyDelete
  46. Anything by MAC, I always switch up the color but that light vanilla scent MAC lipsticks have, TO DIE FOR! take a look at my blog www.madglamxo.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. Mac Lipsticks are beautiful and very pigmented so they always last longer then most other lipsticks. I must say though a highstreet brand i love is MUA, i brought a ruby red lipstick of theirs and i thought it lasted ages on, and smelt gorgeous too.

  48. I've heard only good things about the Apocalips range! Many people have said that it doesn't stay on your lips for very long, which is what has made me avoid it. Have you found this?

  49. I've really wanted to try Morange for ages, it's exactly the kind of thing I'd love! I'm not too keen on Apocalips though! This is such a good collection =) xx
