Summer is behind the corner and we're all hitching to get our hands on those lipsticks sitting in the back of the closet.. bye bye deep purples and scarlet reds ..hello pinks and oranges! I've actually got many favourites for this season and these are just a little (but the best) part of my selection.. I actually am more a "matte lipsticks person" and I usually tend to avoid shimmery finish lipsticks or glossy stains but these are my successful experiments in the coloumn of "let's give it a try".
SEPHORA-SHINY HONEY PURPLE ($29)
I couldn't find a link for it on the actual Sephora website..It must be cause I got it quite a while ago but you can still find it online here and there..not to mention all the beautiful colours in stock right now on Sephora. By the way this colour may look wintery but it only gives that shiny finish since it's not very pigmented..and it's not particularly sticky to be a lipgloss..love it!
LIME CRIME- CAROUSEL GLOSS CANDY APPLE ($29)
It seems that with the launch of limecrime's new collection it is out of stock ANYWHERE.. I managed to find it on ebay..hoping it's just a temporary sold out situation. Anyway I do really like the carousel theme of this collection..It is probably the stickiest lipgloss I've ever tried but the glass effect on the lips..it's worth it! And is sooo long lasting to be a lipgloss.. after hours when the glitters are gone be sure you'll have a perfect red stain on.
KIKO DOUBLE TOUCH TWO ($12)
Put it on at 8AM live your day and be sure that at night time you'll still have it on like if you had just applied it. I forget to have it on most of the time and I probably got all the colours in stock.. For the day I usually go for the base one only and in the evening I add the gloss for that extra touch .. forget about stickiness or dry lips.. highly highly recommended!
YSL VERNIS A LEVRES GLOSSY STAIN-ROUGE PUR COUTURE ($36)
You can't go wrong with this. From the smell of "classic high class lipstick" to the texture of a shiny lipgloss without it's stickiness and lasting problems..It's just that perfect red lipstick that every woman should carry in her handbag..100% thumbs up.
On the website they don't sell this colour but it should be in every h&m store in the world.. not so hard to find. I've been looking for the perfect dark orange for ages.. I had to explain my ideal browny orange in every shop for the past 5/6 months and still now I'm not sure I found it.. this is something very similar of what I was looking for.. even if from the swatches it looks more like a reddish colour.. Sticky as hell.. actual vinyl effect tho.
