So I have a bit of a confession to make: I am obsessed with lipstick. I'm not even sure how this started but I am now constantly buying lipsticks! So I stopped by boots and picked up a few inexpensive lip products. Little bit of advice for anyone at university or going to college soon: buying expensive makeup items is not a good move! Eventually, you ARE going to leave it in a club's bathroom or you'll allow your flatmate to borrow it, only for HER to leave it in a club's bathroom. So other than foundation or concealer, don't bother investing in other beauty products, it is not not it worth so just keep your money for going out and having fun with your friends!
First stop: Gemey Maybelline! I'm generally not a huge fan of Maybelline but I've been loving the Colour Sensational lipsticks for over a year now. My favourite shades are Femme Fatale and Coral Tonic and now, I've picked up two new ones from boots: the 916 Neon Red and the 912 Electric Orange. Both of these are from the Vivid collection which I believe came out for spring, so correct me if I'm wrong! These do not have a matte finish, nor are they extremely pigmented - basically perfect for a casual summer day!
Final stop: Rimmel London! More specifically KATE MOSS! The "Lasting finish by Kate Moss" lipsticks have been my favourite lip products ever since they came out and I've managed to get so many of my girlfriends and my new flatmates to jump on the bandwagon so now between us, we basically own every single one of them! The two colours that I picked up today are 111 Kiss of Life (so beautiful!) and 110 which for some unknown-yet-terribly-annoying reason does not have a name. These are so matte and so opaque that I may never purchase a high-end lipstick. Ever.
Hope you all had a lovely easter vacation or spring break!
