The Top Three: Lipsticks

Maybelline Coral Crush, MAC Viva Glam Cyndi, Elianto Baby Nude
After an unfortunate incident involving my brother and two smooshed lipsticks (BYS and MAC Lollipop Lovin' for those playing at home...and my brother is a 30 y.o imbecile, obvs) I got to thinking about what lippies I'd miss most if they were to leave my collection. Though I change up my lippy almost every day,the 3 shades above are the ones I always return to with a smile.
 I would say Coral Crush would take out the top spot between these, and I wear it more than any other lipstick shade. It glides on effortlessly, I adore the packaging, and it brightens up my whole face with just one swipe. Lipstick perfection! The only negative I can find for this baby is that it never shows up in photos as beautiful as in reality. <3

MAC Viva Glam Cyndi was purchased on a whim when I found out that Gaga's first shade looked terrible on me. It's the perfect beginners red, as it's easy to apply and not shockingly bright/dramatic. I pretty much always choose this as my red, and if the need for a bright comes along I simply build it up over a red stain. Cyndi Lauper, you gun you!

Elianto's Baby Nude has one of the cutest lipstick names ever, and smells delicious. I fell in love with Elianto last year when I visited Malaysia, and this lippy is my 'lazy day' shade. Moisturising and soft, this pale nude shade doesn't wash me out, and acts as a great base if I wear a pigmented gloss. Only downfall is it's flimsy packaging, as gorgeous as it may be it must be noted that the lid isn't fond of staying put in a make-up bag.

  1. I loooooooooooooove Coral Crush!! I agree though it never shows up as well in pics.

    I also love Viva Glam Cyndi :)

  2. Oh I like the look of baby nude!
    My top 3 ( of the moment) are all MAC- Loverlorn, Lady Danger and Freckletone :)

  3. Anita- I know,right!? Never looks as nice, it's so much better in real life. Cyndi is rad, do you wear it often? x

    Gillian- It's such a nice nude, they are normally hard to find because I'm super pale but this one is perfect. I've not tried any of your favourites, will swatch them next time I'm at MAC. x

  4. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is a pretty shade isn't it! Is this lipstick limited edition?

  5. I'm pretty sure it was limited edition, have not seen it since the new Viva Glam Gaga came out. They'd be crazy not to repromote, though. I'm sure Cyndi will be back=)
