BEAUTY, Beauty Articles, Featured | by — January 14, 2013

Usually when someone asks me what the best lipsticks are, I’d first ask them what’s their budget & occasion.  But in actual fact, I have a personal top 10 favourite list at any given time.  My favourites are driven by what I think is unique, comfortable & easy to wear with a beautiful finish that will guarantee people asking you what’s on your lips.  Here are my personal favourite top 10 lippies of 2012.

1. BOBBI BROWN Creamy Matte Lip Color – the one that raised the bar for all other creamy matte lipsticks out there. Makes lips look like they’re dressed in soft fabric.

2. CLINIQUE Chubby Stick – balm-like in formula, and buildable in coverage, it’s convenience packed in a jumbo sized crayon.

3. CHANEL Rouge Allure – the new formula is absolutely flawless & sophisticated. Concentrated colour with no accentuation of lip lines, and lips feel and look “dressed up” in just a few sweeps.

4. LANCOME Rouge in Love – the only lipstick range I’ve collected 4 shades.  Long-wearing yet featherlight, and melts on application, providing lips with long-lasting moisturising comfort and juicy shine.

5. HOURGLASS Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick  – so creamy & snug on lips, and stays comfortable on lips for hours.

6. BURBERRY Lip Mist – it’s THE lipstick for minimalists. Weightless & coats lips with a moist luminous veil.  Copper is now my new favourite nude.

7. TOM FORD Lipstick – the new & improved formula ticks all the boxes: sophisticated pigment, luxurious formula, moisturising, and incredibly plush.

8. GUERLAIN Rouge G de Guerlain L’Extrait decadent velvet lip that looks matte but is actually quite soft.  Guaranteed to attract compliments left right and centre.

9. ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Gloss Sequins seriously seductive 3D sequin finish that makes my lips look almost unrecognisable.  The swatch even made it to the Estee Lauder Australia Facebook page!

10. BLOOM Super Glossy Lips – sculpts lips with a vinyl finish that creates the illusion of a fuller pout minus the tingle.  Also the most affordable lippie in this list.

Which lippie was your favourite in 2012?

    I love my Clinique Chubby Stick in Heaping Hazelnut but I lost it last week. I guess I’ll have to stop by the mall and get myself another one… and maybe a couple other colors :).

    5 of these aren’t even available in Croatia booo 🙁

    Anyway, my aunt will b coming this Summer from US so I’ll definitely order some beauties 😀
    I’d like to try Burberry, Bobbi Brown and Tom Ford. The last one looks so amazing (I want TF blush as well!)! <3

    My favorite lipsticks, for now, are Illamasqua and MAC probably. 🙂
