Take 5 - Summer lipsticks

As part of a new series for the summer, we're going to give you our top 5 picks for products across the board covering make up and fashion!  As much as I love collecting make up and products (calling myself a collector justifies me buying more don't you know), I do have the ones that I wear and love more than others.  I do feel bad for the products I don't use as much as others and try to use them sometimes so they don't think I've forgotten about them!

So the first of our series is all about lipsticks.  I've been getting braver and trying more colour in the lippie department and what better way to set off a golden glow than a bright lip!  Here are my top 5 summer lipsticks.

1. YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Shade 17 - Rose Dahlia.  I had to start off with a goodie!  You can read my full review here, but in a nutshell, it's beautiful, creamy, delicate and makes me happy.  I can wear it to work or out at night and really compliments my skin tone.  Lahve it dahling.


2. During the summer, I like to wear pretty neutral lip colours too.  All About Cupcake is a blue toned pink lipstick from Essence and only cost a couple of euro.  I can't remember exactly how much because I got it last year and can't remember that far back due to old age.  This feels really light on the lips and is completely office friendly too.


3. Flirty Fuchsia is one of the Colordisiac lipsticks from Avon and is a vivid fuchsia colour funnily enough!  It glides on like a dream and adds a fabulous slick of colour on the lips to brighten up your day.


4. One of Revlon's Lip Butters in Peach Parfait takes it's rightful place in my top 5.  When I first picked it up, I was a bit "meh" about it and it stayed in the bottom of my handbag until recently where I fished it out, slapped it on and was overcome with the guilt from having ignored it for so long!  If Nars Orgasm was a lipstick, it would look like this.  It's a light peach colour with gold shimmer running through it, has a glossy finish and stays put for ages.  I love it and might have to head to Boots to pick up a back up.


5. Rounding out the list is from Lancome's Rouge in Love collection, shade 146B - Miss Coquelicot and to be honest, I remember the number more than the name of it!  This is a vibrant coral lipstick that makes my eyes look even greener and you can read my full review here.
