TOP 10 / Budget Lipsticks

IMG_0819Earlier this week I visited Lex in London and since she’s just taken up regular YouTubing we decided to film a couple of videos together. One was a haul – watch here – and having rummaged through her makeup collection I thought lipstick was the obvious next choice. I picked out some of my favourite lip products that we happened to both own.. it’s a bit bizarre how much overlap there was actually and we talked through them all, why we chose them, why we wear them, why we’d recommend them.

IMG_0811These swatches are all over the place, they were just for the video and I decided to post them here as well so apologies that there’s no order and they’re not neater but hopefully you still get the jist.

LEFT TO RIGHT – Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo / Collection Creme Puff in Candy Floss / L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Blake’s Red / Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious (or Unapologetic) / Rimmel Kate Moss 107 / Maybelline Colour Drama Pencil in In With Coral / Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in Eastend Snob / Revlon Lip Butter in Sorbet (or Raspberry Pie) / Topshop Lipstick in Brighton Rock / Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lacquer in Velvet Rebel

I have a really hard time narrowing down lipsticks so this was a great way of doing it and it’s always lovely to have someone to film with too.. although since I’m used to filming solo I am the WORST for talking over people.. hopefully the more I do it the quicker I’ll be to break that habit but it’s worth a watch if for no other reason than to introduce yourself to Lex!

    I have about five colours in the maybelline colour drama and I have to say I love them. Really want to try the Bourjois velvet lips and the collection creme puffs. Subscribed to
