...Current Favourite Lipsticks and Glosses

1. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick, Sugar Plum/2. Rimmel London Kate Moss Collection Lipstick in 03/ 3. 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick, Barely Blush/ 4. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick Matte, Asia/ 5. Rimmel London Stay Glossy in 120.
The first lipstick is the Rimmel London in the colour Sugar Plum which is one of my newer ones. I'm really glad I bought it because the colour immediately brightens up my face as it looks quite bright on my skin tone. I usually wear quite neutral lipsticks which blend in as I don't really like bright lipsticks very much, but I really wanted a nice colour for when I go out clubbing and things in the evening as I think the neutral ones look too plain. Like the name on the packaging, it literally is a lovely plum colour but it's not dull which is how I imagined it to look, it's bright and looks so gorgeous! It's really easy and nice to apply as it's smooth, I only apply it lightly so it's not too garish and then I maybe add a reaaaally light lipgloss over the top just to add a bit of glamour.
The second is again the brand Rimmel London and as you can see, it's getting pretty worn out. This is my oldest lipstick which I've had for over a year now and it's nearly gone! It's definitely my favourite lipstick out of all of them, I love it! The colour matches my skin tone perfectly because it's more of a neutral pink/brown and it's suitable for all occasions, why is why it's nearly gone! It's really easy to apply and I can put as much on as I want without it looking too bold, and same with above, I add a light pink lipgloss over the top as I prefer it looking more glossy rather than matte and it's perfect for a day and evening look.
The third lipstick is the newest one I only bought about a month ago with the boots voucher my boyfriends Nan bought me for Christmas. The brand is 17, which I'd never even heard of until I saw it in the shop and I have to say I'm really impressed :) they have such a selection of different colours and shades and I was literally there for ages trying out the samples on my hand to see which one I wanted. In the end I decided on this shade, called Barely Blush (really cute name too). I use it for all occassions and it's the colour that I've been searching for, for ages! It's looks lighter in person than on the picture, as it's a really nice light pink colour which is SO soft and feminine. I wear it mainly during the day when I'm going shopping or anything like that. It's too good for work I think so I save it for different occassions! It's definitely my lipstick of the month at the moment and reccommend it to all :)
The fourth one is another Rimmel lipstick surprise surprise haha. The colour is called Asia which is a really dark pink, maybe a bit brown too,  and to be honest, the only reason why I actually bought this one was to replace the one that was running out (the Kate Moss one) but clever me, I bought the wrong colour and it's slighly darker than I imagined. I still really like it and it adds variety to my make-up bag but I wish it was a slightly bit lighter as I feel as though it slightly washes me out. I don't really wear it during the day anymore as I wear my 17 lipstick instead. But for going out in the evening for dinner and things like that it's always good because it's not too garish or neutral, it's bascially in the middle!
Lastly, it's my favourite lipgloss EVER, Rimmel London Stay Glossy. I wear this basically everyday, constantly keep it in my handbag so I can quickly apply it over any lipstick whenever I like as it literally suits all the colours of lipstick I own which is amazing :) it's quite bad really because this is the only lipgloss I've basically ever worn. Whenever it runs out, I literally go out and buy the exact same one to replace it which is quite bad haha. I think I need to try a new one now, by a new brand too so I'll keep you girls updated! :)
