My Top 5.....lip products

I was always more of a dramatic eye kind of girl so my lip collection isn't anything major but these are my current favourites which I find myself reaching for.

From L-R: Dainty Doll Lipstick in 001 Couture, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 477 Black Cherry, Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 03, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 05 Antwerp, 2True Cheek 'n' Lip Tint in Blush Pink

Dainty Doll - 001 Couture
I find this lipstick looks a lot darker in the tube. It applies as a shade or two darker than a true red on me.

Revlon - 477 Black Cherry
I think I saw this on one of SuperBeautyNerd's videos and had to have it. Again, I think it applies lighter than the stick looks and it seems more of a reddish purple on the lips as opposed to a blackish purple. I also find that this needs a few coats as it can be fairly streaky.

Kate Moss for Rimmel - 03
I am so pale that I find it really hard to find a nude that doesn't look ridiculous against my skin colour. This is the best nude I've found that works for me. I like that the undertones are pink and not yellow.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Antwerp
This is my first NYX product and I've fallen in love with it. It applies like a dream and I only need one coat. I bite my lips so they're naturally quite chapped but I don't find this drying which I was surprised about. I love it so much that I've ordered a few more.

2True Cheek 'n' Lip Tint in Blush Pink
I always feel like a ginger barbie in this colour. I bought it aa few years ago when I heard it was a dupe for Benefit but the colour scared me and it sat in my room at home when I went off to university. I wouldn't dream of putting this on my cheeks but I absolutely love it on my lips.
