On the Lips // ft. Burberry, Chanel, MAC +

I came across this post on Get Lippie and thought it would be a good idea to share with you the lip colours I've been wearing this past week or so.
 Without thinking, this week I have been wearing very autumn/winter appropriate lip colours. Looking at the swatches, I noticed I have been wearing juicier/glossier lip looks, perhaps subconsciously trying to keep my lips hydrated in this moisture-sucking weather. I have mixed up the brands but leant towards mid to high end without realising it. More swatches at the end of the post!
Natural lighting.
I dabble in lip gloss but always come back to lipstick, and these are the chosen ones this week. Natural Compatibles Berry* is probably my second favourite lipstick EVER (second to Viva Glam Cyndi) and I have no idea why I haven't blogged about it before. It makes me feel like I can take on the world, best feeling ever. Chanel's Rouge Coco Shine in Boy  leans quite mauve on me so I find it nice for this sort of weather. I've been wearing this to work quite a bit in an effort to use it up, I just know how great the feeling will be when I finish the first Chanel product I ever bought, and I'm gunning for it!
Taken with flash!
MAC's Plumful is, funnily enough, a plum lipstick which is so flattering on my pale skin. I find it so easy to wear and it makes my lips look so smooth and flake free. The final lipstick I've been reaching for a ton this week is my Burberry Lip Mist in Copper, which was a GWP in this haul. So glossy and even though it is a colour I never would have chosen for myself, I feel like it is a nude shade that really does suit me.
Smashbox's lipgloss in Tease is a raspberry shade that was applied on me during a makeover and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make it mine. I bought this mini size and adore the formulation, and this week I wore this over Plumful when we had an early Fathers Day dinner at home. Chanel's Troublant is nothing short of amazing, I cannot fault the shade or formulation as it is out of this world. Review and FOTD is here. The final lip product is the new Sally Hansen Vita-E Lip Soother in Vanilla. The scent is delicious and it is such a juicy formulation, plus the packaging is really cute.
Which shade stands out to you most?
What has been on your lips?
*Sent for consideration, but as I said it is one of my favourites and it is awesome! Honesty, always.


  1. Ohh I love Tease! It is so pretty~

  2. Guess I am in a berry sort of mood because that one instantly catches my eye! Nice collection. :)

  3. Love this post! I might steal the idea for myself if you don't mind ;)

  4. I love these 7 days of lipstick type posts! Plumful's one of my old MAC faves and you've reminded me why :) xo
