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!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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?

    Woah that sushi kiss mac lipstick looks lush :))


  5. January 12, 2014 / 12:59 pm

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

  6. January 12, 2014 / 1:24 pm

    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.

    I love Luna too, such a pretty everyday colour! x

    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


  13. January 12, 2014 / 2:23 pm

    Luna is a beautiful shade, one of my favourites too! Not tried many of the others though but they look great x

    I've always wanted to buy Morange but I can never bring myself to because it just feels too bright! Maybe I'll bite the bullet and actually have it for this summer..


  15. January 12, 2014 / 2:27 pm

    The sleek lipstick looks amazing, i love these "mylipsbutbetter" colors

  16. January 12, 2014 / 2:50 pm

    Lovely shades! I'm a big fan of Rimmel Apcoalips, and Luna is definitely one of my favourites (:


  19. January 12, 2014 / 3:21 pm

    sushi kiss looks so pretty! luna has been forever on my wishlist, if only i could get my hands on them here in hong kong…! my favorite lipstick of 2013 would have to be origin's liquid lip color in "hot date," it's my first ever red lipstick 🙂

    Probably Wet n Wild Within These Adobe Walls. I wasn't too crazy about Apocalips/Show Off Lip Lacquer.

    I loved the Rimmel Apocalips & have treated myself to a few shades. I like their glossy finish
    The Kiko Glow Touch in Ginger Twist sounds lovely. I really love dual purpose products

  22. January 12, 2014 / 3:35 pm

    PEACH-tastic! All over the orange shades aren't you gal!

    I've wanted Mac's sushi kiss for ages, fingers crossed it isn't still sold out, I completely forgot about it, I love your taste in lip colours so much Katie :p x


  24. January 12, 2014 / 4:09 pm

    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! 🙂


  25. January 12, 2014 / 4:46 pm

    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.


  26. January 12, 2014 / 4:49 pm

    I'm actually so gutted that Sushi Kiss was limited edition, it looks perfect 🙁 Love this post as I'm really into orange lipsticks & I don't really see many blogposts that make specific posts for them, so thank you 🙂 Have a good sunday evening xx

  27. January 12, 2014 / 4:54 pm

    Definitely going to try a few of these! Mine were Mac fanfare and natural collection raspberry

  28. January 12, 2014 / 5:08 pm

    Love your blog Katie, its so pretty 🙂

  29. January 12, 2014 / 5:17 pm

    Love all of these especially sushi kiss!


  30. January 12, 2014 / 5:55 pm

    MAC’s Sushi Kiss Lipstick looks lovely!

    I love the Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks xx

  32. January 12, 2014 / 7:00 pm

    That one from Sleek looks amazing!
    My favorite one would be Revlon Dark Cherry. xx

  33. January 12, 2014 / 7:11 pm

    ah as soon as I saw the colours of these lipsticks I was instantly intrigued. they are like my all time favourite colours.

    Jess x

  34. January 12, 2014 / 9:32 pm

    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).
    Lovely Notions

  35. January 12, 2014 / 9:41 pm

    I also loved the Barely There lipstick, but I really liked MACs Syrup as well ^^

  36. January 12, 2014 / 9:46 pm

    I really wanna try the Kiko Glow! Lip products are definitely one of my guilty pleasures 🙂 x

  37. January 12, 2014 / 10:09 pm

    I love MAC's Sushi Kiss, it's so gorgeous and a bit different compared to your usual lipstick. Great picks xxx

    Might give 'barely there' a go 🙂


  39. January 12, 2014 / 11:09 pm

    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

  40. January 13, 2014 / 12:19 am

    I've been wanting to try MAC's Morange and the Rimmel Apocalips for months.. that reminds me I should finally get them. Great post, and love your background! 🙂


  41. January 13, 2014 / 1:10 am

    I heard so many great things about the Rimmel Acpocalips! I want to try soooo bad! I just need my paycheck! Love your blog! (so many !!)


  42. January 13, 2014 / 1:12 am

    The Sleek Barely There is gorge! You would never think that was just a drugstore product!

    My favourite lipstick this year was defintiely Mac's Dark Side 🙂


  43. January 13, 2014 / 6:08 am

    Hey we was just viewing your post on my Samsung Phone and I was wondering how well it will work on the new ipad coming out . Fleeting thought. Anyway thanks!

    would love it if there were pictures of you wearing them to see the difference in the different shades, or some swatches! they do look lovely in the tube tho and i am excited to try out the apocalypse range (i haven't yet!), since I have heard such good things 🙂


  45. January 13, 2014 / 8:56 am

    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!


  46. January 13, 2014 / 9:02 am

    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

  47. January 13, 2014 / 1:59 pm

    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

  48. January 13, 2014 / 2:00 pm

    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.


  49. January 13, 2014 / 3:43 pm

    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?

  50. January 14, 2014 / 11:32 am

    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
