LUXURY LIPSTICKS WORTH THE SPLURGE

If you must know, I’m quite a lipstick hoarder. I’m a sucker for all lipsticks, from luxury to drugstore, but I do love a good beauty splurge when I want to treat myself. I don’t purchase them very often and I always do my research before going all out and spending a fortune on just one lipstick, and there’s a certain few in my collection that I think are really worth the money. I’ve chosen these lipsticks on every aspect, from the formula to the packaging. Packaging for me is quite important when I’m spending a lot of money, as I don’t want it to fall apart after a week and it’s nice to have pretty ‘dressing table’ makeup to display. Let’s dive straight in shall we?

Burberry Beauty is fairly new to me, and I only purchased my first ever product from the range at the beginning of the year, which is their Liquid Lipstick in the shade Fawn. The packaging for this has to be one of my favourite ever, as it comes in a frosted matte tube with nothing but the logo on the front. It’s just so effortless and classic. This shade is a really pretty mauve pink that I always wear by itself. The applicator is the perfect size to line your lips with without going over the edges and I never need much of the product as its very pigmented. Its formula is so hydrating and buttery soft so its super easy to wear. Even though its a matte liquid lipstick, it doesn’t dry down like others but stays put for a good 5-6hours. If you prefer something a little more matte for the lips I suggest Burberry’s Long Wear Lasting Matte Lipsticks, mine is the shade Nude Apricot. Again, the formula is really soft and creamy but I find it dries a little more matte than their liquid lipsticks. This to is very pigmented but I usually wear this with a liner as it’s a pale peach nude, so can be quite light for me by itself. Burberry just kill it with the packaging, and this is encased in a gunmetal bullet with a magnetic closure that always make it feel so luxurious and sleek when I use it.

If you love a good accutane online brown lipstick, then you’re in luck as I’ve got two here that are gorgeous. First is the Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick in 104 Brun Cachemere, a really pretty red toned brown. This is probably the most expensive lipstick I’ve purchased for myself, but it was a treat whilst I was in New York and I’m so glad I caved and got it. The formula and pigmentation is like no other. It’s so soft and dries to the perfect semi-matte, which I find really comfortable and flattering as it doesn’t leave those tiny creases some do after a few hours. The super defined tip allows you to apply it and achieve a perfect lip line every time. Its by all means luxurious as it comes in a leather bullet laced with beautiful silver around the edges.

Second is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria, my first ever lipstick purchase from the brand and is still my favourite shade. This is a true brown that I find compliments many skin tones. I’ve made quite a nice collection of these lipsticks now and every time I use one I always think about treating myself to another. These are a true matte that lasts all day with their Lip Cheat liners underneath, and each shade has a matching liner that I recommend to try to. Charlotte Tilbury’s lipstick packaging is so iconic and classic, and the rose gold finish is so stunning.

Last but by no means least is the Marc Jacobs Liquid Lipstick in Fawn Over Me. This is actually the only Marc Jacobs beauty product I own and I must look into getting more. These liquid lipsticks are encased in a sleek black glossy tube with a small transparent circle on the end so you can see the shade through it, which I think is a nice touch. This shade is a gorgeous medium nude and is so easy to apply with its small brush applicator. I find this formula really wearable and comfortable and it does dry super matte so it doesn’t budge or transfer, even when eating!
