Luxury lipstick test

In my previous post about luxury make ups I said that I would dedicate a whole post to luxury lipsticks as I collected quite a few over the past year, so here it is.

Urban Decay – Oblivion ($17)

This lipstick is the BOMB! I love it so much! It’s truly matte, and although it looks like a dark nude colour, on lips it turns into a darker, purple-ish matte lipstick that’s not drying and super long lasting. So make sure you check out some Urban Decay colours here.

MAC Matte Strip Poker – Limited Edition

This lipstick was a part of Kelly Osbourne’s limited collection and I bought it because that time matte lipstick was totally rare and unique. It is a great lipstick although might be a little too bright for my skin, meaning that it makes my lips disappear (yes, at that time I didn’t know how to pick a nude lipstick, I thought the lighter the better…). I usually use it for ombre lips or put on just a little and blend it, because it’s long lasting either way.

MAC Satin Myth – ($17)

I didn’t give up on the nude lipstick hunt, but as you can see I kind of bought almost the same shade over again. LOL I use it the same way I use the other and I have to say it is a great quality lipstick which you can still purchase here.

MAC Cremesheen Coral Bliss – ($17)

Yea, I have a few MAC lipstick, but let’s be honest, they are great. This one is a perfect coral colour for spring and summer. Not too bright, little shimmery and very hydrating. You can still purchase it here.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 42 L’éclatante –  ($37)

This was my first really expensive lipstick I bought and I had mixed feelings about it. The colour is perfection, the perfect shade of pink for the summer. It is a matte lipstick but my only concern is that it’s not that hydrating and it doesn’t cover your lips fully, so after a while I could see my lips getting a little chipped. It can also be on my part that I should have hydrated my lips before, but I kind of thought this lipstick would do all that for me. LOL. Anyways, I love the colour and the packaging as well. You can order it here.

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo 208 Roman – ($37)

This is a very pigmented, hydrating lipstick. The only downside is that it’s not too long lasting, so make sure if you use this, you check your lipstick from time to time and correct it if necessary. Get it here.

Dior Addict 266 Delight, Dior Addict 554 It Pink  ($35)

The Dior Addict lipstick is a gorgeous lipstick, it’s super hydrating and it gives a subtle but beautiful colour to your lips. The packaging is so chic and pretty, doesn’t really have a smell but it’s just so fancy. I recommend it if you want to have a subtle pink shade to your lips in the upcoming spring. You can check out all the colour here.

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour – Flesh Stone ($21)

I saved the best for last! This Mac liquid lip colour is hands down the best I used (except maybe for Sephora’s lip stains). It is super long lasting, very light on the lips and the colour is just perfection. It’s so easy to apply and really stays on even after you eat. The price is affordable, so make sure you get it here.

Let me know what are your favourite lipsticks so I can try them out! 🙂
