Hello! Long time no see (again)! First of all I want to apologise for the lack of posts in the last months. It has actually been 3 months since my last post and I can't believe how fast time flies. We are already nearly half way through the year. I have been very unmotivated to blog recently and I decided to stop as I would rather not post anything instead of posts that aren't up to my standards. I will soon be finishing my annual exams so I will hopefully get back to my old blogging routine. Until then I hope that you will bear with me. In today's post I rounded up my current favourite lipsticks. Some I can't stop wearing and others I have fallen in love with.

In Malta there isn't a Kiko store so whenever I go to Sicily the first thing that I do is look for a store and have a little splurge. This is exactly what happened a few months ago. Among other things, I picked up two lipsticks which I both love. I have been wearing the smart lipstick in 925 a lot recently. I had been looking for a light brown lipstick for the longest time and when I saw this I immediately picked it up. The only thing that I don't like is that it is not as long lasting. I also love the smooth temptation lipstick in 04. Until recently I didn't really have any pink lipsticks so I decided to give this one a go. It is a lovely nudish pink shade and really long lasting. It is also easy to apply since it is thin, nearly like a lip liner.
Another favourite of mine is the MAC velvet teddy. This one is a more of your lips but better type of lipstick and it has a deep-beige tone. Despite being a matte it is not drying and applies really smoothly. It is also very long lasting. Usually I stay closer to the nudish side of lipsticks but recently I have been really liking the Essence sheer and shine lipstick in 09. As its name states, it is a sheer lipstick with a glossy finish. When applied lightly it goes on as a nice reddish tint but it can easily be built up and turns into a red shade with purple undertones.
What are your current lip picks?
Thanks for stopping by :)
