I've been in Hong Kong for over a week now and these are the lipsticks that I have been reaching for. I have been consuming a lot of food and have been reapplying my lipsticks a lot. See my most reached for lippies below.

Starting with the most affordable lipstick, I have kept this in my sister's bag since there isn't really a need for me to carry a bag when I have a card wallet. This lipstick is from Wet n' Wild and is so affordable, I have the shade Bare It All and it is a muted rose pink colour which looks really natural on the lips. Scent wise it reminds me of honey but it doesn't cause any nauseousness. It is a matte finish but it does not dry my lips out. I would recommend to prep your lips with a balm beforehand if you have chapped lips. I really want to pick up a few more shades.

An Asian lipstick that I have been reaching for is from Etude House, I remember picking this up when I went to South Korea a couple of years ago. This is called the Lips Talk Chiffon Lipstick in the shade #109, it is a beautiful peachy nude colour which can sometimes look a little bit more orange on me as I have pigmented lips. It is a matte finish and has a slight fruity scent which does not linger.

Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite lipstick brands, this last week I have been reaching for English Beauty which is a light nude pink. This is a matte finish and I do think that this one is more drying than my other matte ones from the range but it still wears really nice. This colour on me looks like a powdery pink colour and has a gorgeous vanilla scent.

What do you class Lippie Stix as? A lipstick or a lip crayon? This is my second tube of Aquarius which is a Kathleen Light collaboration with Colourpop. It is extremely affordable and is a creme finish. It is such a beautiful light nude pink and glides over my lips. It has more of a vanilla pineapple scent which I love. My Aquarius is in a constant state of melting since the weather is so hot and humid.

Lastly, a lipliner which I have mentioned numerous times is from Revolution. The shade I have is called Chauffeur and is a brow nude pink colour which I love to use all over my lips since it gives me fuller lips (not that I need it haha) It does slightly tug onto my lips when I apply but it is so opaque and looks beautiful with a gloss on top.


That is all for my most reached for lipsticks. What's yours?

Until next time!

  6. Aquarius looks stunning! I have an Etude House Lipstick I forgot about, I definitely need to pull it out again!

  7. I love Bare It All! I do have super dry lips, though, and you are 100% right about grabbing some lip balm, but after that it is smooth living!
