Top 5 bright lipsticks (with vlog)

My top 5 bright lipsticks: YSL, Bobbi Brown, MAC and Guerlain. With vlog!

I adore makeup, before this blog I had a beauty blog I didn’t monetise it and had no clue about SEO or rankings; I just shared my love for pretty things, it was fun and I miss it. I miss the carefree side of blogging the part where I write about my hobbies and interests and hopefully inspire you to try something new. Makeup scores highly on my list of things I love and so this week I wanted to share 5 of my favourite bright lipsticks.

As I explain in the vlog, I do probably have hundreds of lipsticks (collected over a number of years!) it’s my thing, don’t judge me… I have found that with lipstick you really do get what you pay for unlike mascara for example: you are far better off buying a L’oreal one for a tenner than splashing out the big bucks on one for more than twice that.

Here is my vlog and below is a picture round-up of my 5 favourite brights…

  •  Guerlain G L’Extrait ‘Luxure’ A liquid, creamy and ultra-pigmented velvety lip colour. This has quite possibly the sexiest packaging you have ever seen on a lipstick, it’s beautiful silver casing reveals a built-in mirror when it’s popped open. It really is quite something. A really lovely true red shade too.

  •  YSL Rouge Pur ‘202’ is a gorgeous 1940s red with a hint of raspberry. It glides on and has a semi-matte finish, it’s really beautiful. This lipstick has serious staying power. In fact, where I was swatching this on my the back of my hand there is still a hint of this one left after two baths and several hand washes. Amazing!

  •  Mac ‘Show Orchid’ is what I call an 80s disco pink. It is a very vivid pink that is verging on neon. It has a slightly frosted finish and is best worn with just mascara, fresh skin and hair up. It is the sort of colour that can make you look really youthful. I mentioned in the video that I thought it might be a MAC pro product but it isn’t, so if hot pink is for you I highly recommend you try this one.

  •  Bobbi Brown ‘Old Hollywood’ Last up is my new favourite. This is Marilyn Monroe bright cherry red, it really is the most beautiful colour. If I’m wearing a red lip during the day I usually put my hair up in a bun and wear very minimal makeup on the rest of my face. A slick of bright lipstick does an amazing job of helping you look ‘put together’ without you having to try too hard!

    I am terrible at keeping lipstick on my lips, so I tend to use lipstains these days. My current favourite is Maybeline super stay 24/hr in extreame fushia.

    I love lipstick but find with blonde hair I have to be careful of the colours as some make me look a bit trampy rather than elegant. All the colours you show really suit you. #TheList

    I hardly ever wear lipstick and always seem to choose the wrong colors as I opt out of the brighter ones and then choose nude colors that don’t really suit me. I must have wasted a fortune! I like the Bobby Brown one though and it’s a very memorable name ‘Old Hollywood. I may have to treat myself when I’m back on my feet

    I love the Bobbi Brown one :) For everyday wear, I don’t really wear makeup so I tend to just have a slick of gloss but for nights out I love the Avon red one (I think it’s called real ruby or something like that). Thanks for hosting #TheList

    They’re all gorgeous! However I particularly like the MAC Girl about town, the YSL, and the Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood. Not so long ago I didn’t like lipstick at all, but I’ve really got in to the Clinique colour pops – I love Punch Pop, which is a really vibrant red. I’ll take a look at your recommendations! xx

    I like the YSL – I love that 1940s red look! I never wear lipstick though. I think it looks great but lipstick has never stayed on my lips more than 30 seconds, even using all the tips – bases, liners, powders! #thelist

      "Children are the staying power of a nation. They are its long term projection into the future. When a nation does not think of the future, then it has no children and when a nation has no children, then it has no future."This is the brutal truth, no more, no less."

    These are all gorgeous. And you look fab! I don’t tend to wear lipstick as my OH hates it, not the look but the feel, so I try and focus on other areas like eyes and cheeks. Great post and vlog #TheList
