Bright Lipsticks of the Moment

I wanted to do a post on my favourite bright lipsticks; i'm a lipstick fanatic, particularly when it comes to bright pinks, corals, reds and other colours from the same family. 

From left to right: L'Oreal Colour Riche "370 Pink Passion", Maybelline Colour Sensational "Coral Tonic", MeMeMe Cosmetics "Tuscan Red", MAC "Costa Chic", MAC "Going Dutch", MAC "Vegas Volt", MAC "Lovelorn", Maybelline Colour Sensational "Coral Pop", L'Oreal Colour Riche "371 Crazy Fuchsia", At the Front: Topshop "Brighton Rock", MAC "Lickable"

Pictures are below of the lipsticks "in the flesh".

MAC "Lovelorn" - This isn't exactly a crazy bright lipstick, but it still stands out. It's a great pastel pink, that looks great on those of us with [freakishly] pale skin!

MAC "Going Dutch" - This is a darker pink, with a slight sheen over the top. It's definitely a medium pink, but again, looks much stronger & more pigmented against my skin.

MAC "Lickable"- This is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks of all time - it's this vibrant magenta that is so pigmented! It looks so good on, and makes your teeth look very white [which is a rare quality in a pink lipstick!]

MeMeMe Cosmetics "Tuscan Red" - this lipstick is divine. It has a touch of gold in it, and is such a creamy consistency. It's insanely moisturising, and has great staying power. Definitely one of my all time favourite red lipsticks, and the only true red I chose for this post!

Maybelline Colour Sensational "Coral Pop" - this is a great drugstore peachy/orange coral lipstick. The colour sensational range is quite moisturising too. Good lasting power too.

Maybelline Colour Sensational "Coral Tonic" - this is my all time favourite coral lipstick. It's a red based coral, but is so vibrant, so bright - it's my favourite party lipstick of choice!

MAC "Costa Chic" - this is a gorgeous peachy coral. It definitely sways more towards the peachy/pink based coral than a red based one. It's one of my favourite summer lipsticks, and lasts for hours.

L'Oreal Colour Riche "370 Pink Passion" - this is another favourite party lipstick. The Colour Riche range smells like Parma Violets [can't go wrong there], and they stay on your lips for hours. 

L'Oreal Colour Riche "371 Crazy Fuchsia" - this is a fiercely bright pink, and again, it's got great staying power. The Colour Riche lipsticks have a lovely shine over them too.

Topshop "Brighton Rock" - this is my other favourite Summer lipstick - it lasts for hours, the colour is seriously vibrant, and the formulation is pretty moisturising. I love Topshop lipsticks - well priced too!

Let me know what you guys think :)
Love Livie xoxo


  1. The colors are all very nice <3
    My favorites is definitely the MAC "Lickable", a very great red. The MAC "Going Dutch" gives a nice contrast to your skin, and I love that color (especially on you!), and the L'Oreal Colour Riche "370 Pink Passion" looks very soft and reminds me of colorful spring-theme make-up :) thanks for sharing!
