Top 5 Monday: Lipstick

Hi lovelies,

I can't believe I haven't been on the blog for a week, I've been really busy with work experience and hospital visits so sorry for that.

Anyways onto the usual Monday post which is the top 5 and today I'm doing lipsticks, now this one was very hard to do probably harder than the nail varnish post because I have so many gorgeous colours I wanted to feature but couldn't.

Here are my top five anyways I wanted to try and mix brands as much as I could so hope you enjoy:

1. Revlon Amethyst Shell

I've been religiously wearing this colour all week, I love this. I find a lot of the time I go for the lighter colours when it comes to everyday lipstick but I've been loving this of lately. I find even though it looks bright it isn't as bright on the lips, and is long lasting.

This is a gorgeous pink on the lips and is subtle enough to wear everyday but then can be worn on a night out. I love Revlon lipsticks I find when I apply this my lips feel great and creamy.

2. Revlon Skyline Pink

A second favourite Revlon lipstick, I was a big fan of Jade from BINTM and I couldn't wait for her collection to be released. When I first got this I wasn't 100% sure if a lighter lipstick would suit me but found it really does.

I love wearing this colour this is my main go to for a natural everyday lip and I find even though it's pale it will last a while. This colour is a very frosted pink so it does need a few coats but once they're on they do stay. I'm not going to say if you constantly drink or eat to expect it to stay but if you have a little drink through the day expect it to still be there.

3. Estee Lauder Crystal Baby

I got this on my birthday last year and I must say I have fallen in love with this lipstick. When I looked at the colour at the bottom of the case I wasn't 100% sure but after reading blog reviews I knew I had to get it.

This lipstick is on the pricer side of brands but it really is worth it, I love the formula of this lipstick and makes my lips feel lush. Second of all the packaging is gorgeous I really do love it and it's probably my favourite packaging of a lipstick.

The colour has a blue tint in it which I love and no matter how many coats you put on it looks great. I find it has a really glossy finish which means I don't have to put gloss on, and I adore the smell of this polish - yum!

4. Mac Bombshell

This is probably my favourite Mac shade, I find this great for any time of the year and with the frost finish I find it not only looks great but also feels great. I love the hints of gold within this polish and is another colour I've found that can be used for both day and night looks.

My favourite lipstick for lasting finish, it might be because of the darker colour it appears to last longer, but I find it really does. I like how this colour can be built upon as a couple of coats can give a pale pink look whereas a couple of coats give a darker girlie pink.

This is probably my go-to girly colour.

5. Avon Pink Freeze

Now this lipstick is different to any of my others, this is a mint tasting lipstick from Avon which I love. The colour of this is another light shade of pink which a gorgeous shimmer, and I find this is another colour which I love for everyday looks.

My lips do burn a little when I put this on because of the mint within the lipstick but I do love how it feels with the mint on makes me feel all refreshed. I find this colour a little bit lighter than Estee Lauder's Crystal baby but is still really gorgeous.

I could literally sit and smell this all day it smells that nice, this has a frosted finish which means the colour application is really smooth and soft. Bargain price also which makes it an added bonus.

Here are swatches of the colours:
