I think that as most of the beauty bloggers out there, I have a serious obsession with lipsticks. I never have enough and I like to collect them. Any occasion is good to get a new one; having a bad day, having a good day, buying a lipstick for a friend and suddenly realizing that I need a new red one. Anyway, I am not gonna take you through my entire collection. First a part of it is now in France and I only brought my ... I don't know 30-40 favourites one here? Not kidding though. But here is a very small selection compiling my favourite ones.
My newest addition - Well thank you Santa Clause! Or should I say, thanks to my amazing best friend who gifted me the most perfect Chanel lipstick I have ever seen. It is the Chanel Lipstick in La Raffinée. The shade is absolutely perfect for both a day and an evening look. In fact if you are still not brave enough to rock red lipstick at night, this is the kind of pinky mauve lipstick that can also make a good statement. I won't talk for ages about the amazing packaging, those lipsticks scream luxury! I was blown away when I saw that she got me something Chanel. I couldn't expect less from my best friend. That's what happen when you know someone for more than 20 years.
My favourite packaging - Sorry for the drugstore girls but here is once again a high end one. I have to be honest, my favourite lipsticks are almost always high end. I love me some drugstore products but I feel like there is nothing like applying good old luxurious lipstick. Well this one is I think the favourite packaging of a lot of you, the YSL Rouge Volupte. I own 5 of them, and my favourite color still Pink in Paris, such a pretty pink that will suit so many skin tones.
My favourite red - That might not be a red for some of you but I do wear it as a red lipstick. It is MAC All Fired Up. It is quite a dry lipstick but I don't feel like it is uncomfortable and the big plus is that it actually stay on your lips for hours and hours. It is a vibrant pinky red and it suits my ghost like skin really nicely. You can find it as a special edition in the MAC Winter collection but no worries, it is a permanent color.
My all time favourite color - I got this lipstick only a few months ago and I am already terrified to run out of it. I use it almost every single day and I absolutely don't get tired of it. It is the NARS Audacious lipstick in Anita. It is my favourite everyday color, I absolutely love the formula of this NARS Audacious range and I would recommend anyone to pick one of these lipstick up if you want to invest in some luxury products.
My most sentimental one - It is maybe cheating but, it is the exact same, the NARS Anita, because my dad got it for me just before I came to Japan this year, and everytime I wear it I remember when we went to Sephora to buy it together. My dad looking at me swatching a bunch of lipsticks is weirdly a very warming memory.
