I am a full-lipped woman (lol) and often get complimented on the shades of my lipstick which is why I thought I should share the top three shades I always wear.
I can honestly say that these three shades look great on all skin tones and would highly recommend experimenting with them if they are colours that you don’t use!
There only seems to be one brand of lipstick that I like and that is MAC – it’s not intentional, I just find it to be the best for pigment, all day coverage and price.
Rebel is described as a mid-tonal cream plum on the MAC website. I would describe it as a muted purple that still makes your face pop! Rebel has a creamy base which makes it glide on a lot smoother than other lipsticks. I find that one to two swipes makes me have the affect pictured but if you want the purple pigment to look obvious, you should apply a thick layer. I usually wear this shade when I want to wear something a bit different to the popular red currently trending.
This intense reddish – burgundy with a matte finish is my everyday go-to lipstick. I love it because it is great day to night shade, isn’t too bright and loud like other reds and the matte finish screams sophistication. I have found that although the colour looks quite bright on me, it is definitely a stronger burgundy on pale and olive skin tones. I’m usually earing Diva 85% of the time when wearing makeup.
MAC describes this popular shade as a very matte vivid blue red. The matte finish of this shade makes it look gorgeous but it sure does dry your lips out really quick. If wearing this shade, make sure that you carry it around with you all day as you will need to re-apply a couple of times. NOBODY LIKES CRUSTY LIPS! This colour is really popular so I’ll be surprised if you haven’t come across it. In images, I think it looks like it has orange underlying tones but the still shows the vibrancy of the colours.
