My Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks

I used to be a lipstick fiend. I would buy lipsticks left and right even though I only had one pair of lips ha ha ha! It’s one of the easiest cosmetics to wear and it instantly transforms you from drab to fab, sweet to sultry, virginal to vamp in seconds!

Over the years, I have stopped hoarding lipsticks like there’s no tomorrow – primarily because I can’t for the life of me fathom how to finish all of these before they expire. That and the fact that other beauty products caught my attention ha ha ha!

Let me share with you my Top 5 Favorite lipsticks.

NYX Round Lipstick in Perfect
This is my perfect brown nude. The shade is really pretty and the formulation is bomb! The price is amazing too – I think I got this for less than PHP250. I love it so much that I finished more than half of it – which is a feat in my book since I don’t often get to finish a tube of lipstick. I like wearing this with a brown smokey eye.

Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick in Wood Rose Cream
I have a confession. I actually stole this from my little sister. My mom gave this to her, while I got a pink shade. HAHA! I am a mean mean sister, I know but it was just love at first swipe! I used to not like nude shades, because they weren’t too exciting, but this changed my mind for sure! I love the colour, the consistency and the packaging. An all-around win for me.

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Chatterbox
I find this shade just universally flattering. I use this a lot on my brides and clients – this instantly makes you look younger and fresher! Chatterbox was actually my first MAC lipstick (thanks B) and I have since repurchased this because it is just so darn beautiful.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb
I wrote about this lipstick here. The Urban Decay lipstick in F-BOMB managed to inch my Russian Red out of the top spot of favorite red lipsticks. Its just as pigmented as Russian Red without the drying feeling. All in all it is just absolutely gorgeous and definitely well worth the price. (Thanks A for this!)

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Rebel
Rebel is the kind of shade that when you wear it, you instantly feel badass. This was given to me by a another friend M, because she knew I had a tough time finding it here. I was so ecstatic when I got this shade! It’s a beautiful plum shade that instantly gives you a mysterious and vampy vibe. I wear this a lot on night outs coupled with smudged “lived in” eyeliner.

Writing this post, I find it funny that 4 out of 5 of my favorite lipsticks were gifted to me hahaha! I love my enabler friends and family! 😛 If I could add one more, I would add Revlon’s Fuchsia Fusion – that one is a sexy hot pink shade. Haha, I am cheating on this by adding this but hey – it’s not easy to whittle down your favorites! LOL! Anyway, what are your favorites? Do you prefer reds, pinks, plums or nudes? Let me know what your favorites are – I just might get it! Come on, let’s enable each other LOL!

    huhu chatterbox and rebel looks bad on mee.. im gonna try chatterbox nga again since you said its universally flattering 🙂 im also concerned that i cant finish my lipsticks before they expiiiire. how long is their shelf life nina? (please say about 5 years lol)

      Oh my gosh, Rebel is my go to “i wanna look badass today” lipstick. It takes getting used to though! And yeah Chatterbox, I use this a lot on my clients 🙂 As far as shelf life – 2 years lang, but I think if you take care of your lippies and store them in a clean, dry, not too hot place, you can extend the shelf life! Kaloka we better use and abuse our lipsticks na.
