My Favourite Lipsticks

Rimmel Pink Blush

Anyone that you ask, they know I am a big fan of lipstick. I probably own more than I should but I still continue to buy lipsticks that catch my eye. So I wanted to let you into my beauty case to see what some of my favourite lipstick brands and colours are, who knows, you may just find your new favourite!

Rimmel Colour Show Off – I cannot rave about this line of Rimmel lipsticks enough. Long lasting, moisturising and such beautiful colours! My favourite are Shocking Pink (sometimes it can look like a red but it’s a nice deep pink) and Red Fever. Available from Priceline, Target, Big W, Kmart and selected chemists.

Rimmel Pink Blush

Rimmel Lasting Finish – I have this one in Pink Blush, it is the perfect pastel pink shade. Available from Priceline, Target, Big W, Kmart and selected chemists.


Lime Crime – For those of you who just read that and thought “What on Earth is Lime Crime?”, well you are in for a treat. Lime Crime is a make up brand based in America that is all about pushing the limits of beauty with some out there (and a few not so out there) lipstick and eyeshadow colours.

The Lindy Charm School – A long wearing, red lipstick that doesn’t bleed or smudge when eating or drinking, now isn’t that what we are all looking for in the perfect red? Available from

The Lindy Charm School Russian Red

 Lindy Charm School – Russian Red


Chi Chi Viva La Diva – I love matte lipsticks so when I bought this one, I was very happy to see it was matte but didn’t dry out my lips.

Chi Chi have a wide variety of lipsticks to choose from also. Available from Myer and Target.

NYX Round Lipsticks – Glides on smooth and makes your lips feel moisturised, these lipsticks come in a very large variety of colours.

The two in my collection are Circe (a nude colour for all skin types) and Narcissus (a Barbie pastel pink).

Make up is all about having fun so if you tend to stick to a certain colour, branch out and try something outrageous and fun, you might be surprised.
