SPOTLIGHT: Favourite April LOTD's...

Unless I'm ill or on hols, I swatch at least 20 lip products every month, and it's SO hard to choose faves in each colour family when there are so many on the list, so I've decided to post a collage of LOTD's every month instead of quarterly - these are from the April assortment. Hope you enjoy seeing some of these shades and brands, and perhaps even be inspired to try something new ...


Of course, some of these may not be your cup of tea, but I wear just about every colour imaginable, so hopefully, there's something to suit all tastes, and so it's on with the deets...


1. I'm always hesitant to include lippies that are discontinued, but I just couldn't leave out this stunner from Milani - Chilled Brandy. It's beyond me why they canned this shade...
2. Love Burt's Bees lipsticks - they include so much goodness and the intensity of this Russet River is fabulous...
3. And what's an Autumn without Unicorn's Blood from Jeffree Star Cosmetics - one of the few matte liquids out there that I can wear all day with minimal lip withering...



4. Raved about the Covergirl Katy Kat Matte range HERE - this is Crimson Cat, an exceptionally comfortable stunner...
5. Another Covergirl winner is this one from their Colorlicious range, Succulent Cherry - love that its light and bright and full of cheer, and the shea butter content keeps my lips soft and supple from morning till night...
6. Ahh, Bourjois - their Rouge Edition Lipsticks sont magnifiques, this is Brun Boheme, another Autumn essential...



7. I'm really quite impressed with these MUD Full Colour Lip Lacquers - for the price (around $6) they're hard to beat, this is Vintage Pink...
8. An oldie but a goodie - Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate #48. One of the Nude collection, quite a deep mauve in the tube, but for some reason, it turns out mushroom on me lol, love it...
9. My only Shanghai Suzy lipstick (must do something about that) - Miss Georgina Pink Plum, plumtastic!...



10. Another of my Bourjois loves, Rouge Edition Velvet in Plum Plum Girl  - this is literally velvet in a tube, adore!...
11. So glad I revisited these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lippies - I have quite a few, crazy about the formula. This is Electric Pink, it's actually even brighter IRL...
12. And lucky last is one of my most recent acquisitions - Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink in Creator - I wasn't going to buy any of these, but I caved for this wowser purple. So glad I did - if you're after a long-wearing formula, this is the go...

Any faves here?

Take care of  you,

  1. Im like you and love to wear all different shades of lip colour and eye shadows. Im always saying that life is way too short to live muted.
    Im rather enticed by #9 but then 10,11 and 12 draw me in also. I can never just pick one :D

    1. Bring on the colour hey Fawn! I agree entirely - colours energise me somehow, each one has a different effect, but they all contribute to my wellbeing xxx

  2. The Milani in Chilled Brandy, the Shanghai Suzy (I haven’t heard of that brand), and the Bourjois in Plum Plum Girl. I like how you are including the lipstick at the bottom of each photo.

    1. Nice choices Okatko - I started including the lipstick case in my Instagram swatches a while back so that gals know what to look for. Sometimes I get to the stand and there's so many to go through, I often can't find the one I want! xxx

  3. I've just gone & purchased a Burts Bees lippie recently (I bought Brimming Berry), but haven't really road-tested it yet (aside from wearing it around my house today over lip balm). I like the Shanghai Suzy colour + the Covergirl Succulent Cherry.

    1. Hiya Shell - the BB lippies are gorgeous, they get a little soft in the hot weather, but I don't mind as they have so many nutrients in them ♥x♥

  4. You honestly can just about wear all of them well. I forgot about the Rimmel Kate nude 48. I love that colour. Will wear it tomorrow x

    1. Aww Barbe, that's so lovely of you to say - #48 had slipped my mind too, a problem when you have lots of lippies. On the other hand I love rediscovering something I've loved before ♥♥♥
