SPOTLIGHT: First Quarter Fave LOTD's, Nudes, Bricks and Bronzes...

At the end of last year I uploaded pics of my favourite LOTD's of 2015. But I figured it would be of more use to you gals if I did a little summary every quarter - that way if you spot a colour you think you'd love or might suit, you can watch out for it to be on special. Also it's almost IMPOSSIBLE for me to narrow down the ones I adore out of a whole 12 month's worth, so these are my picks for the year so far, culled from 80 possibles lol! I wear a pretty wide range of hues and textures, so here's hoping these help you find your HG  I've sort of grouped them into colour families so you can compare - some are very similar with only subtle differences in the shade, and there'll be a mix of mattes, creams, pearls, lipsticks, lip paints and crayons...

Crop Mineral Lipstick - Plum
DB Colour Kisses - Nude
BOE Professional Lipstick - Mousse
Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick - Coffee Craze
LOL Lipstick - Bronze Age
MBA Lip Paint - Chic Brick

DB Moisturising Lipstick - Bronze

L'Oreal ColorRiche Lipstick - Cristal Cappuccino
Revlon SuperLustrous Lipstick - Sandstorm
MBA Lip Paint - Another Brick in the Wall
Milani Lipstick - Cinammon Spice
Nude By Nature Mineral Lipstick - Sassy

You may have gathered I'm not all that big on nudes, preferring bolder hues - the first four are pretty much all-year-rounders for me, whereas the bottom eight are my go-to's for Autumn/Winter 

Any of these take your fancy?...

Take care of you,

  1. Those are all beautiful lipstick colors! :)

    1. Hi Julie - gosh I just love autumn shades, but there'll be plenty more colours in the next few posts. Pink, orange, coral, red, and even...purple ♥

  2. Loving this new quarterly LOTD summary, great idea. My fave out of this bunch is the Crop Mineral Lipstick, it's such a pretty plum shade. You must have quite an impressive lippie collection ♥

    1. Lol Bella, yep I have quite a few, but there was a time (and not that long ago) when I had only 5! Glad you like the LOTD idea - the Crop Mineral lippie is gorgeous, can't believe I've only just discovered this range! xxx

  3. Lovely swatches & my favorite is shade "mousse"..

    1. It's a pretty shade Rams - I really like the BOE Professional lipsticks, and actually the matte Shocking Pink in their $2 range is a beauty ♥

  4. I don't do nudes either, ha ha! There's that LOL Bronze Age again. How's the endurance with that one?

    1. Lol neurotic - hey thanks so much for all the blog love yesterday ♥ The LOL Bronze Age is pretty impressive for the peanut price - not quite as moisturising as I'd like, but it lasts for hours, love it!
