Lets talk LIPS

Recently I've become exceedingly more interested in make-up then I have been previously. I'm continuously wanting to try this, that and the next product which is being raved about. It suddenly started to dawn on me that my collection has probably doubled (maybe tripled) in size in just over a month. Ridiculous I know. My lip collection specifically has grown immensely and I wanted to tell you why & what products I keep grabbing for. 

 from left to right: Lancome, Rimmel London 'Asia', Clinique Chubby Stick, Tanya Burr Lipgloss Afternoon Tea, Mac 'Media', Mac 'Twig'

1. MAC 'Media' 'Twig'

I am definitely a designer brand newbie. I never used to want to splash out a lot of money on a make-up product. HOWEVER mac changed my mind. 
I bought my first Mac lipstick on the way to Barcelona (Duty free £12 ish) at the beginning of December 'Twig Lipstick' I instantly fell in love with the colour and it is still my muse. It pains me that this lipstick has nearly ran out. Twig applies like velvet and doesn't dry out my lips, which especially in winter is a make or break for me. I think one of my favourite things about the lipstick is although I would class it as an everyday lipstick, the purply tones give you the ability to wear it day to night. 
There's also another lipstick from Mac I have been adoring and every time I wear it, without fail I receive a compliment. It's Mac Media and it's a deep berry colour - very in right now. I find that this lipstick is great for if I'm in the 'I really don't give a' mood or if I am feeling daring. It looks amazing with cream and grey tonnes and It is in general one of my style must haves for autumn and winter. You NEED a berry lipstick in your collection, no excuses. 

2. Clinique Chubby Stick 'Chunkiest Chilli'

I have had lip crayons before and I have liked them, but I haven't been overly impressed. Out of all of them my favourite is by FAR my clinique chubby stick. The first time I tried the chubby stick was a tester from cosmipolitan magazine. It was in the colour 'strawberry' and I wore it every single day. I don't know why this didn't make me buy one, but it didn't... nevertheless on the way back from NYC my lovely mum bought me one in duty free (I reckon it was so she felt less guilty about what she bought... haha). I have it in the colour 'chunkiest chilli' and it is just such a wearable shade. My boyfriend even made a comment stating that he really liked it. It's a great thing to grab if you just want something that is easily applicable, fades well and won't smear all over your face if you eat. (Girl problems). 

3. Lipgloss? Tanya Burr 'Afternoon Tea'

Now I have never been a lipgloss girl - really I haven't. And I guess I wanted to change that. Recently I bought a Tanya Burr Lipgloss, I know BBlogger predictable, but honestly I was seriously impressed. It applies and stays really well and It smells incredible. It's really nice not to have to worry about the shape you're applying your lips, lining your lips or making them look perfect in general and In that respect Lipgloss really needs to creep into my collection a bit more as I am so bloody busy at the minute. 

4. My collection classic: Rimmel London 'Asia'

I have repurchased this lipstick for a staggering 2 1/2 years... jeez. It is such an everyday wearable purple colour and It's just such good quality. The scent of the lipstick is also really lovely and It's just my comfort lipstick for If I'm having a make-up mare day. 

5. Lancome 'not quite sure oops'

I don't actually know the name of this specific lipstick as I peeled the bottom off it... bad Hannah. I received it in a gift set from my brother for Christmas and It's such a festive shade. The lipstick has a glittery finish running throughout, perfect for the party season and has a really good texture when applying. I wore this lipstick on Christmas day, If you've been watching my Vlogmas videos and are curious. (I also wore Mac Media on Christmas Eve)

SO that is it... for now. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for not being very active. My internet has been absolutely appalling and I've felt like my time has disappeared. BUT that's going to change! 

Lots of love

  3. Mac Twig looks sooo nice!

  4. Ahh I love Asia as a shade so much, I bought it by mistake, and it turned out to be my best mistake buy ever - I really need to invest in a MAC shade, but just can't justify the cost on something that'll eventually ... not be there. (Even with their return policy, return 5/6 items, get a free lippy). Twig looks lovely though.
