Lipsticks were one of the beauty products I got into last, I never used to wear them, now I've become slightly obsessed. These are the lipsticks I've been enjoying the most over the past couple of months, starting from left to right;

Topshop Lips - Nevada £8: I've been wearing this lipstick pretty much every day since I bought it, I love it. It's a really nice every day nude lipstick. I prefer to wear this when I have a bit fake tan on as sometimes can look like concealer lips as it's quite pale but normally it's fine and leaves a nice natural looking sheen. It feels very smooth and moisturising but can make your lips look dry which I don't understand (this only happens every now and again).

Sleek - Peaches & Cream £4.99: I've been wearing this lipstick more recently as it's a very summer lipstick. It's a lovely vivid peach shade and it's very pigmented so I normally dab it on my lips. It's very smooth and creamy which makes applying it really easy.

Maybelline Color Sensational - Coral Tonic £7.19: This is the newest addition to my lipstick collection and it's what I've wearing most for nights out. It's a very bright orange toned coral and is very easy to apply unlike some bright lipsticks I've tried, this one doesn't go everywhere! It feels really moisturising and smooth and lasts for hours.

Fashionista - Raspberry £7: As the name suggests, this lipstick is a really lovely raspberry shade. It's very smooth and creamy and doesn't tend to bleed. I sometimes apply this over Topshop Nevada Lips if I feel like it looks too pale to create a nice pale pink shade. One thing I dislike about this is the packaging, it's terrible. It looks pretty but it takes so long to twist the lipstick up. It can also be hard to apply as it comes really flat and not like the typical lipstick shape. But it's not something that would stop me from purchasing it again, overall I really like it!

Helen-E - Caribbean £8: I received this in a Glossybox a while a go and didn't have much hope for it when I first seen it but when I tried it I was really surprised. It's one of the creamiest lipsticks I've ever tried, my lips feel so soft and moisturised and it doesn't cling to dry bits at all. The shade is also really nice, a brown-orange toned red which looks really nice with a tan. Would definitely recommend these lipsticks, I'm looking at buying a few more shades.
