My Top 5 Lipsticks

I just felt like doing one of these favourites type posts, as you can probably tell because thats kind of all Ive been blogging about this past week, but hey ho! I havent got a huuuuge lipstick collection, maybe about 15ish, so this isnt like "the best MAC lipsticks EVER" or anything, but these are just my favourite lippies out of my collection....

L-R: Avon Pro To Go in Provocative Plum; MAC Shy Girl; MAC Bombshell; MAC Viva Glam Gaga; Rimmel Lasting Finish in Sugar Plum

Swatches below and lip swatches....

In the same order as above :)...how creepy does my hand look haha. These swatches are quite true to real life for once!

Please excuse the hideous lips below, I had no other makeup on my face, and I haaaate the shape of my lips, theyre kind fo wierdly scarred from when I was little and got coldsores a lot. But anyway...

Mac - Viva Glam Gaga
Everyone knows this one, it was my first ever MAC purchase because I loved Gaga and had to have it, I dont wear it often because I dont want to run out but I love this, and get compliments on it whenever I wear it.

Mac - Shy Girl
The colouring of this photo is so wierd, this lipstick is not orange at all in real life! Its more of a nice nudey peach, its a cremesheen so its really soft and moisturising and I love this for through the day, its probably my most used lipstick.

Mac - Bombshell
I loved the colour of this as soon as I seen it, and I love frost lipsticks so this was a good all rounder! This is bright enough for nights out but also not too in your face for through the day so I really get good use out of this, I think it suits my skin tone nicely.

Avon Pro To Go - Provocative Plum
These lipsticks are unbelievably smooth and glossy! I love the push up lid on it, so handy for nights out so you dont drop your lid, you can hold a drink and apply lippie all at once haha. This is much more plumy in real life but still has th nice pinky colour and gloss to it that shows in this picture, I want to get some more of these in more everyday shades because theyre so silky smooth and lovely.

Rimmel Lasting Finish - Sugar Plum
This is my favourite night time lipstick, this photo is really crappy its so gorgeous and this just doesnt do it justice but I took about 20 and my camera is just dying :(. Again its another plumy shade, but its more shimmery (in a nice way) and long lasting. Also these lipsticks are more affordable than the others and they smell amazing!!

Sorry for the rubbish photos! I want a new camera so badly.
