Time for the final installment of my 2016 Beauty Favourites! This one was probably the most difficult to pick because I wear a lot of different lipsticks all the time, but low and behold I did it and I’m gonna share them with you today!

I usually find nude lipsticks so hard to wear, it took me a long time to find the right shade but when I finally did I wore it all the time. For me, it was between Velvet Teddy and Honeylove by MAC, but Honeylove is just a much nicer colour on me – Velvet Teddy is quite a dark nude.

Another one from MAC is Diva; I’ve been wearing this a lot throughout the A/W months but I will admit I’ve also worn it through Spring and Summer too. I love a dark, bold lip and I think it belongs in all seasons.

As well as nude/purple tones I’ve also been wearing a LOT of red and orange. They’re pretty much the only colours I wear. The first is a very red red and it’s one of my favourites. I love Rimmel lipsticks, they’re so cheap but some of the best I’ve ever tried.

Another drugstore pick is the Maybelline Vivid Matte liquid lipsticks – this one is the shade Orange Shot. I find matte liquid lipsticks to be a bit of a struggle, it’s hard to find one that’s not too drying. Thankfully this one isn’t drying at all, and I wore it for about 2 months straight before moving onto another lipstick obsession.

Next up is two more liquid lipsticks – NYX is an iconic brand when you think of liquid lipsticks, and for good reason. This was the first liquid lipstick I ever tried and I still stand by the fact that it’s the best. It’s not drying at all, dries matte on the lips very quickly and comes in about 4 million different shades; you’re spoiled for choice. I have about 10 of these, coincidentally all in nude shades. My favourites are Zurich, Stockholm and Cannes. If I’m wearing a matte nude lipstick, odds are it’s one of these babies.

Another iconic name that comes to mind is Kylie’s lip kits. A very new brand but it’s very well loved amongst the blogger (and non-blogger) community. I hadn’t tried one until very recently but I’m obsessed with the formula and the colour that I have (Mary Jo K). This is probably my favourite orange lip product I own, it doesn’t budge all day and doesn’t totally dry out my lips.

I hope you enjoyed my 3 posts on all the different products I’ve been loving over the past year – I really enjoyed getting them all together and photographing them. 2016 was a bit of an odd year but one thing I am thankful for is all the amazing products I’ve found that have changed the way I do my makeup. I hope to find many more in 2017!
