6 Lipstick Lovin' Bloggers #BloggersRecommend ❤

Hello my lovelies
Happy Valentine's Day! Today's post is something that has been in the works for a little while now and came as a result of me wanting to diversify my blog in 2016. I'm such a huge fan of the blogger community and regardless of any ups and downs, I still love to empower other bloggers and to show off their amazing work. I love writing on my blog, but sometimes I just want to share the love a bit more and what better way to do that than talk about some gorgeous lipsticks with five phenomenal bloggers! I'm also going to be giving my two cents on one of my all time favourite lipsticks and I've been so excited to put this post together to see what we have all chosen. It would mean the world if you stopped by and checked out all of these fabulous bloggers and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below!
NARS Satin Pencil - Rikugien
I chose the Nars satin lip pencil in Rikugien because it’s one of the easiest products to throw in your purse and apply on the go. I could be on the bus, or the train, and just a quick little swipe will give life to my complexion. I like the colour because it’s not too bold but it doesn’t wash you out, which can happen often with nudes. The consistency is great as well since it doesn’t emphasise dry lips – something I suffer from especially around this time of the year. I have no idea why this little gem is not more hyped about!

MAC - Viva Glam II
Lipsticks are my weakness. I always remember playing with my Mum’s vast collection when I was little and how all the different packaging used to fascinate me. I didn’t often smudge them all over my face like a lot of little girls do, I just liked to pop the lids on and off and look at the pretty colours (Can you tell I was easily amused… lol). I was so excited when India asked me to write about my favourite lipstick for her #BloggersRecommend series, but I admit it was hard to narrow it down to just one. After much deliberation I went with MAC Viva Glam II. This warm nude shade has a satin to matte finish that can be worn with so many different looks. My boyfriend bought this for me this Christmas and I have worn it nearly every day. I especially like it for work because it’s neutral enough to not cause offence, but you still look like you’ve made an effort. It’s become my handbag staple.

MAC Faux has grown to be one of my all time favourite lipsticks and it is definitely one I would recommend to anyone! This is a full proof shade that I absolutely adore wearing alone or paired with my beloved MAC Whirl lip liner. It offers a pinky mauvy shade to the lips and has a satin finish so it applies to your lips like a dream with a slight glossy finish.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick - Fairest
When India asked me to take part in her #BloggersRecommend series and recommend a lipstick to you lovelies which I absolutely love, it didn’t take me long to decide which one to choose. I have a slight obsession with Estee Lauder lipsticks, and I thought I would share with you the latest addition to my lipstick collection, which is the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Shine Sculpting Lipstick in the shade Fairest. This is a lovely warm nude lipstick that feels comfortable and hydrating on the lips. It has a balm like texture and a high shine finish. Fairest is the kind of nude colour that doesn’t wash you out or give you the dreaded foundation lips haha! It’s long wearing, pigmented and packaged in an elegant dark navy magnetic case. India and I seem to have quite a similar taste in lipsticks, and if you haven’t tried the Estee Lauder Pure Colour range yet, do check it out, you’ll be in for a treat. After all, if Estee Lauder lipsticks are good enough for Kendall Jenner they are good enough for us haha!

My go to lipstick from Charlotte’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. This gorgeous brown rose shade is easily worn as an everyday nude but is also versatile to glam up for an edgy look due to its deep undertones. For me, Stoned Rose is a ‘your lips but better’ type of shade for those of us with naturally pigmented lips, especially as paler nude shades can often wash you out. The formula glides on easily, moisturising the lips as well as having amazing pigmentation. It’s longevity is also pretty impressive, meaning you will only need to top up a couple of times throughout the day.

When I think of a WOW lipstick I instantly think of Lana! There are so many lipstick brands that I love, but I feel like NARS really hit it out the park with their Audacious range. I wasn't a huge fan of their previous formula, but after trying my first Audacious lipstick during a make-over I was instantly hooked. LANA is a wearable orange toned Red that instantly brightens up your complexion and makes you feel ready to conquer the day! The formulation is long lasting and very comfortable and has left me wanting a million more shades from the line.

I just want to say a huge thank you to all these amazing bloggers that got involved in my first ever #BloggersRecommend post!
