I'm loving doing these top 5/10 products because it's such an easy way for me to tell you what products I'm really loving! If you want to check out my previous ones Top 10 Drugstore Foundations and Top 5 Drugstore Concealers. Even though it's summer I've been reaching for these lipsticks the most for the past however many months.

First up we've got my ultimate favourites. There's two NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks and a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. 

The first Lingerie Liquid Lipstick is in the shade Teddy which is the darkest of my favourite nudes, it's perfect for evenings now and anytime during the winter. I have done a full blog post review on the lipsticks so check that out here for a full review.

The second Lingerie Lipstick is in the shade Corset, I do really love this but it is ever so slightly too light against my skin tone at the moment, in the winter when I'm at my palest this will be even more perfect. You can get these lipsticks from Boots for £6.50.

Lastly there's a Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi, it smells incredible, lasts all day on my lips, is very hydrating and is just incredible. It's such an easy colour to just swipe on your lips when you're in a hurry. Again it's available in Boots for £5.50.

Then we've got actual lipsticks. The first one is one that I just had to include, the infamous MAC Velvet Teddy, I've had this well over a year now and it's still got a fair amount of product left. It's a matte lipstick but isn't too drying, the colour is a perfect your lips but better colour, so it's easy to just sweep across and get a really nice subtle lip look. This lipstick is £15 from MAC/Department stores.

Secondly we have the lipstick I was wearing before I could get my hands on Velvet Teddy. It's Rimmel's Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick in the shade 03. It's slightly orange toned which is nice in this weather and is more of a translucent lipstick than the others, it's so hydrating on the lips and gives a really nice sheen that is almost glossy like, without being sticky like a gloss would be. You can get this lipstick in Boots or Superdrug for £5.49.

I'm loving picking my top 5 favourites at the moment so if you've got any others you want to see let me know!


  1. i love the kate moss lipsticks! xo

  2. I've been wanting to get the NYX soft matte lip cream in Abu Dhabi for a while, but they're always sold out here! And no wonder, because it's really a gorgeous, gorgeous shade.
