Lipstick Week: Current Top 3 and a Wish List

To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.

I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.

Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!

5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)

I have been loving this lipstick recently,  it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it gives

Rock Berry Lips This AW: Affordable and Luxury Options

It seems that I have written quite a few features about berry & plum lips. Including this and this but I don’t think I’ve ever shared my affordable and luxury picks.

Berry lips are my favourite actually. And, although they are super hot for AW, I can wear them at any time. And so should you, don’t limit yourself by anything…  By the way, have you see the gorgeous look from Dolce & Gabbana SS15 show that Pat McGrath created (check out the photos below)?

Berry Lips for AW Affordable and Luxury Options Tom Ford and Rimmel

I think every girl should own a nice berry/plum lipstick. Which one? It only depends on the shade that you prefer and your budget.

So here are two options: very different price point but are utterly divine anyway.

Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum (review and lip swatches)

Tom Ford beauty started with lipsticks, and they are still the most covetable item from his line. Luxurious packaging, TF logo, beautiful texture and flattering shades. If £37/$50 price point is  something you would consider – it is an amazing “investment”. My friends are

Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian. Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Remember this photo with the most gorgeous plummy shades? I’ve decided to write about the lip product in more details, as it is truly wonderful.

And it is Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian and I have been wearing it a lot!

Lips and Nails of the day Rimmel and Bourjous makeup4all

On the photo above it is actually used rather lightly but you can easily build up the shade and make it more intense which is perfect for the Winter season.

I like the fact that the formula is glossy and it feels light and moisturizing on the lips, even when I have some dry patches, they are not horribly enhanced, as with some lip products.

Here is how it looks like swatched on the skin. Glossy Finish is a
