Phew! So hurry because these offers aren’t going to last for too long. And I shall continue talking about my favourite lipsticks & top recommendations. ❤
This comes as no surprise, but MAC Ruby Woo is my absolute favourite. It was one of my first lipsticks from MAC, and nothing ever compares to the fierce, fiery look that this one exudes. I will agree that it tends to dry out the lips, but that’s nothing which little exfoliation beforehand cannot resolve. [ Handy Tip: I usually put on my lip balm, when I start putting my primer. This way, by the time I do get to the application of my lipstick, my lips are moisturised enough and hold on better to the lipstick. ]
Now, this shade isn’t available in Canada, but Lakme 9to5 Creaseless in Fuchsia Pink has to be my absolute favourite one. I bought this in India, and the colour is super bold & cheery, and absolutely brightens up the entire face. Very moisturising and super long-lasting- what else can I ask for! B-)
If you like this shade, and cannot get this one, MAC Girl About Town is very, very similar to this shade. Another possibility is not exactly a lipstick, but can easily be used as one- that is Bite Beauty- Grapevine, from Sephora.
I’m still a little apprehensive about going all out and putting on a bright, orange lipstick. However, Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin comes quite close. It’s a beautiful mix of Orange & Red, and fades off as a beautiful Coral shade on my lips. The formulation is quite hydrating & this stays on for a good 4-5 hours.
This isn’t exactly a nude shade, but that’s how MAC Crosswires fares on me. MAC describes it as a clean pinky orange, but it’s quite lighter than how it appears to the eye. It’s of Cremesheen formulation, hence it doesn’t stay beyond 3-4 hours;albeit it does leave my lips quite hydrated.
So these are my current, fave lipsticks. I do have to explore other colours, like bright orange, or even wine for the autumn-winter months. Which lipsticks are your all-time loves? Did you buy any today, in lieu of the SALE? Do let me know, for I’d love to hear your suggestions as well.
