Feeling lippy

L-R Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in Fiery c/o, Flori Roberts lipstick in Fierce c/o, Chanel Rouge Allure in Incandescente, Topshop Lipstick in All About Me

I'm a real lipstick fiend. I don't wear it all the time but I always carry around two or three on my bag to whip on at any moment. I find it really helps to lift an outfit even if you just have your slob clothes on! Since it's began to heat up i've found myself drawn to these four beauties. Red and pinks are clearly my thing.

I don't own very many lipglosses as I find them a bit too sheer. This one is the opposite and comes up quite opaque. It's great when you don't want something too heavy on your lips. The only downside to the gloss is the fact it bleeds so you have to constantly keep an eye on it. Not one you can forget about once you've had a few drinks. I always make sure I have a few cotton buds in my bag to help keep it looking tidy.

I was very kindly given this gorgeous deep pink from Flori Roberts and it's a welcomed addition to my collection. I've only worn it a few times as it's such a statement with just one swipe. It has quite good staying power and is even better if you pop lipcote in the mix.

I love the orange tone of the Chanel number - it really makes it ideal for the summer. It's so vibrant and again stays put even after eating. I do have such a soft spot for Chanel.

Finally I can't rave enough about Topshop lipsticks. They have such a brilliant creamy formula and so pigmented. The colour in the bullet is literally the same shade that will transfer on your lips. Nothing worse than a missleading bullet!

What's your favourite lipstick colour for the summer?


  1. I still need to brave a red lip more often. I have a MUA lip velvet that is a beautiful shade of red but I only wear it a handful of times as I am not used to seeing myself rocking such a bold lip!

  2. Oh my gosh Sophie, I can't take my eyes off that Topshop one! I think I need to add it to my collection... my favourites at the moment are Impassioned by MAC (always a fave) and also Shocking Coral from Maybelline, would highly recommend! xx

  3. awesome! I like your blog ❤
    I would be happy if we could follow each other??
    Let me know :)




  4. Hi Sophie!
    I'm a little scared of lipsticks- I have a few but rarely wear them! I have a nice Agnes B one which I like to wear but I'd like a simple nude one!x

  5. That Chanel one is such a lovely shade! I wish I had bigger lips so I could rock reds...
