Kiss worthy lipsticks for Valentines Day

Valentines day is fast approaching so I'm dedicating a post to the mushiest day of the year. Whether you're off out on a date or having a girls night I have raided my lipstick collection and found the shades to give you that perfect, smooch worthy pout.

The Pinks

Mac 'Impassioned' is a hot, hot Barbie style pink. It's an Amplified finish which means it really pigmented and moisturising on the lips, it also last ages and doesn't need loads of reapplication. I personally wear this lipstick with a more simple eye look but you could definitely rock this with a cat flick.

Nyx Mega Shine Lipgloss in 'Beige' is a pretty pink (despite the name) and I have to say this is my favourite lipgloss of all time. It smells like sweets which is always a bonus!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme in 'Milan', the formula of these are so light on the lips- almost mousse like. Again, this product smells so sweet, Nyx really know how to make a good smelling lippie.

Mac 'Speed Dial' is a more natural looking, baby pink but it still has enough colour to it that'll be just perfect for a Valentines day look. I'd wear this with a soft, smokey grey eye and loads of fluttery eyelashes.

The Reds

Mac 'All Fired Up' is a bright, matte, in your face red. This a retro matte finish which means its super, super matte but I quite like that because it literally does not budge- perfect for all that Valentines kissing ;)

Clinique Cherry Pop is a 'Cherry' red exactly as the name would suggest, I really like the Clinique Lip Pops, they smooth and moisturise lips amazingly. This is a miniature version but once I've used this I will definitely be getting the full size.

Maybelline Colour Drama 'Red Essential' is more of a classic red with a matte finish. This would look perfect with a vintage style look, I can just imagine this with a prom dress and pin curls. Chanel that inner Marilyn! 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Hot Pepper' is a bright, orange red. I find you need two layers with this to really get the colour out but I can literally wear this all day without it fading. A low maintenance red lip is a rare find!

The Berries

Too Faced Melted Berries is a vibrant pink, berry shade. Love it, you need it. If you haven't tried these Melted lippies then you really need to.

Charlotte Tilbury 'Love Liberty' is just gorgeous from the packaging, to the colour, to the finish. This would make a perfect gift so time to start throwing the hints now ladies...
