2014 was a good year for Lipsticks for me. I found a lot of good ones, and really developed my “taste” for lipsticks. I generally like strong color lipsticks, and slightly matte texture. Colour has to be intense and long lasting – but the most important thing for me in lipstick is “it does not irritate my lips”.
I have such a sensitive lips that I can only wear some lipsticks. So, I guess my recommendation would be safe for sensitive lips out there…
So, here’s my top 5 in 2014 without particular order – they are all equally loved by me.
Tom Ford 15 Wild Ginger
This definitely need to mention first, as I have longest relationship with this lipstick out of all 5. Love at first sight at launch, and still in love with this. It is my go-to red lipstick, amazing colour pay off and long lasting. If I wear more than 8 hours then I might feel little dry towards the end of the day, but it is still there. It fades evenly and nicely, and it survives food and drinks. I can really rely on this. This colour complements lots of skin tones, this is the only lipstick I have to have a back up stock. THEY DON’T SELL THIS IN JAPAN .. what?! I still don’t understand this, but this is something I have to live with. I buy my back ups when I travel to UK.
Strong orange lipstick. It makes my look instantly modern. I’ve reached out for this during this summer. Orange is not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are board of pinks, nudes and reds, then orange will give you a fresh feel. MAC lipstick is very nice colour pay off, but it gets quite dry after 6 hours of wearing it. Still love it though, but no more than 6 hours for me as I get blistered lips for next few days.
Organic Glam Red
Organic Glam is the makeup line of the famous skincare brand “Organic Pharmacy” – love both of their skincares and makeup. This is seriously the best finds this year – lipstick texture is AMAZING! I can wear it for whole day, it gets dry a little but if I re-apply then it’s fine. I never ever experienced any blister or irritation on my lip with this product. Only concern is that the packaging feels little plastic-y and there are very little product in there… I am going through this real quick! Also, I hope they bring out more colour range as I love this so much!
Nars Satin Lip Pencil Yu
This made me go crazy for 2 weeks, non stop. I just HAD TO wear them, everyday. It is a gorgeous blue toned bright pink colour. Although it is satin finish, the colour pay off is great. It has a shiny finish, but the opacity is almost the same as matte lipstick. It is going real quick, I need to get a new one very soon.
Georgio Armani Lip Mastro 504
Effect is instant and your lip gets seriously stained with the colour – I mean I don’t mean it in a negative way, I find it amazing. Your lip really become that colour! Once it’s on, it is never gonna go away, so it is pretty much safe for whole day. It’s deep fuschia red colour, it is definitely more winter pink than bright summer pinks. It does not dry on my lip which I also like about. Only thing you have to remember though…. is you will have some difficulties removing them.
So, these are what I really love currently. As you can see they are all strong coloured lipsticks. Well, they will lift up your style instantly, and it is a easy “cheat” item.
Hope you enjoyed and speak to you soon!
