Lipstick Addict Tag

I’m Nikki and I’m a lipstick addict (Hi Nikki). Some girls like blushes, some like nail polishes, I like lipstick. I seen the Lipstick Addict Tag on The Black Pearl Blog and knew it’d love taking part. 

Favourite lipbalm/treatment?

Without a doubt Nuxe Reve De Miel. This lip balm hydrates and soothes like no other. I use this every night and wake up to super soft lips.

 Favourite red?

If I’m going for a true red lip colour, Estee Lauder Pure Colour Lip Envy in Envious is perfect. The bright poppy red colour stays on for a good 4-6 hours without needing a touch up and despite the decent staying power it doesn’t feel drying on the lips.

Best luxury lipsticks

I’m a Lauder girl all the way. The Pure Colour Lipsticks have such an amazing formula, the packaging is beautiful and they have a decent colour range. Crystal Pink is one my most used.

Best mac lipstick

I love Mac Plumful, the rosy plum colour perfect for day and night.

Most disappointing lip product

I’m going to have to go for Mac Shy Girl. I was looking for a coral toned neutral lipstick and I’d heard a lot about Shy Girl. Unfortunately, it’s just not for me. The coral beige colour just makes me look like a corpse and I find the formula just looks cakey on my lips. Has anyone else found this?

Do you wear lipliner?

Since I bought Pillow Talk Lip Cheat from Charlotte Tilbury, I’ve found myself using lipliner a lot more. Before I would only really use lipliner if I was wearing a bolder lip colour but now I find that it gives the subtle definition my lips need.

Favourite lipgloss?

I’m not a massive lipgloss fan but I do love Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter. It looks more like a balm on the lips and doesn’t leave a horrible sticky feeling. And it smells wonderful.

Best matte lipstick

I don’t have a lot of matte lipsticks at all. One that I’ve been wearing quite a lot lately is Mac Lady Danger. I’m a bit too scared to go for a full on orange lipstick but I love how this has the coral/orange tones.

Best liquid lipstick

YSL Glossy Stains are a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid so that counts, right? YSL have such a great colour range and the staying power is amazing.

Favourite dramatic lipstick

The only dramatic lipstick that I’ve found myself wearing is Mac Rebel although the deep plum colour is definitely more suited to Autumn/Winter than summer.

Special mention

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy was the colour I wore when I graduated last year, I wore it to Grad Ball and also on my first date with my boyfriend (vom, I know). I wouldn’t say I was a particularly sentimental person, but I do think there’s something a little special about this little lipstick.
