A BOLD PUNCH Napoleon Perdis 'Devine Goddess Lipstick in Hara'
Having first purchased this product in the early winter of 2012 for a formal, I never thought it would become my go-to for a bold lip. First lets discuss the colour; wow. I think this is a brilliant colour if you are wanting to make a statement with your make up or outfit. The cool coral undertones of what would normally be a red, really compliments all skin colours. It really brightens the complexion and gives the look a good pop without needing to over-accessorise. Now for the formula, I would put it in the category of a matte to cream finish. It's not my complete cup of tea, however if I lacquer well with lip balm before and after, it transforms the lipstick into more of a cream sheen finish. It's extremely long-lasting and doesn't budge without copious amounts of make up remover! Which I think is perfect, as there's nothing worse than needing to top up a lip product countless times over the day or night.
SOMETHING GLOSSY Estee Lauder 'Pure Color Gloss in Praline Paradise'
I first discovered this product via a gift set, and have honestly fallen head-over-heels in love with this product. It's literally a product that creates the whole "your lips but better" look. What is perfect about this gloss, is firstly, it isn't sticky or tacky on the lips and it keeps the lips moisturised and nourished all day. It's perfect just by itself, or paired with any pink to nude lipstick or tint. This is my most-used coloured lip product in my collection, due to its versatility, formula and colour. It works perfect for day or evening!
THE DAY-TO-DAY MAC 'Frost Finish Lipstick in Angel'
I received this as a wonderful gift from my best friend Maddie at Christmas. It's the perfect shade and formula for any outfit or make up look you are trying to create. The shade is neutral enough that it doesn't over-power other colours or shades used in your outfit or make up, yet it's prominent enough that it compliments and enhances things overall. I think the Frost formula is brilliant, as it's really nourishing on the lips, but still has enough pigment to not fade over time or flake. I really enjoy the versatility of this product, whether it's for during the day at work or out for lunch, or in the evenings for a dinner or night out.
