My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

2009 Favourites 1: Lipsticks

I know I am very late on the whole '2009 Favourites' thing but I thought as its still January I could still get away with it.
I thought I would start with one of my favourite makeup items...Lip products, especially lipsticks.

Firstly I will talk my 2 favourite brands for lipsticks. I have one highend and one lowend brand.

Just to save any confusion when I say Highend / Lowend i'm not talking about the quality. This just means that the lowend products are more affordable and quite often found in drugstores. A lot of people prefer this type of product because they are not able to afford the more expensive or 'highend' products.
For the highend lipsticks my favourite is Mac. Granted I haven't tried any other highend. I may do one day but for now i'm happy with Mac. These are sold for £12.50 on the uk site however they are normally a bit more expensive in store. I will do a seperate review on these in general and go into a lot more detail.
For the Drugstore I like the Maybelline Colour Sensationals. These are a lot cheaper than Mac but they are very good quality. I think the price may vary depending on where you buy but I would say If you are on a budget get these. I have also heard good things about rimmel but I have never tried thier lipsticks so I can't comment there.
I have narrowed it down to 8 favourite lipsticks. 2 Maybelline 6 Mac. Bare in mind I own 8 Maybelline and a lot more Mac. There were a lot more of each I could have chosen but I decided to try and keep it to 10 products. I used to find it funny when girls struggled to pick thier favourite lip products. But I had exactly the same problem. There were a lot more I could have chosen but I didnt want this post to be too long...(Like it will be anyway....but oh well lol.)

My two favourite Maybelline Colour Sensationals are Ambre Rose (a light pink) and Crispy Cookie (a beige nude.)

Now for the Mac Favourites.

Lollipop Loving Naked ParisNude Rose
Up The Amp
London Life

Oh and I think I might add a special mention as I feel everyone needs a nice bright Pink in thier collection.

Mine will be Milan Mode
(Picture to follow, This was a last minute choice so I need to take a photo before I can upload so it might take a while)

Well that is it for my Favourite lipsticks.

Hope you enjoyed this post and feel free to comment.,....What are your favourite lipsticks?
