Top Five: High End Lipsticks

Top Five: High End Lipsticks

A couple of weeks ago, you might have seen me talking about my Top Five Drug Store Lipsticks. Whilst I love an affordable lipstick, I'm also a sucker for a more pricey lippy. Whilst my high end lipstick collection is considerably smaller than my drug store alternatives, I wanted to share with you five of my absolute favourites. 

Top Five: High End Lipsticks

 Clinique Cherry Pop Lipstick

A perfect, post box red is a must for any lipstick collection. This is mine. This lipstick has great colour pay off and is really long lasting. It's also really nourishing to the lips as it has a smoothing primer built into the formula of the lipstick. This is the mini version of the full-size product, so it fits perfectly into even the smallest of bags for a night out. Even with it being a mini, it doesn't seem to be running out in any hurry which is perfect!

Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink
You might have seen from my recent Charlotte Tilbury post that my love for this brand has grown at a rapid pace this year. I bought my first Tilbury lipstick a few months ago, and now I own three. They are absolutely perfect. This shade, Penelope Pink, is the perfect 'your lips but better' nude. I'm not a huge fan of a pinky-nude, but this one is perfect for me. This is part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range, so it's really nourishing and hydrating on the lips. 

MAC Velvet Teddy

Since seeing Velvet Teddy being worn by my best friend (which, if I remember right, she stole from her sister) I had to have it in my collection. I absolutely love this shade and it's my 'go to' shade for any makeup look. It has even been affectionately named 'Velvet Ted' between me and my friends because we wear it so much.

Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry

I first heard of this lipstick from watching Zoella's YouTube videos in the autumn months - she basically lives in this lipstick during the Autumn/Winter. It's the most perfect berry shade that I cannot wait to wear throughout AW17.  This is one of the Matte Revolution lipsticks, so it's not a nourishing on the lips as Penelope Pink, but I definitely don't find it drying or uncomfortable.

MAC Creme D'Nude

Another, albeit more recent, MAC favourite. It's part of the cremesheen range which is really nourishing to the lips. As it says in the name, it's got more of a sheen than a shade like Velvet Teddy, but it's nothing too over the top. The shade is a really lovely pale, peachy-pink, which pretty much compliments any makeup look. I also love to mix this with Velvet Teddy to make a completely different shade.

What are some of your favourite high end lipsticks? I'd love for you to share them with me in the comments, or you can find me on Instagram and Twitter.
Love, Kate xx
