Lipstick Lovin’ – Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick, Maybelline Moisture Extreme SPF 15 Lipstick & Ulta 3 Lipstick

Hi everyone,

As someone who was late to jump on the lipstick bandwagon, I’m now slowly accumulating a nice collection. As such, today’s post is all about lipsticks! I’ve chosen 3 lipsticks from my collection that I think would each suit a different occasion.



Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick – Crystal Baby Creme – This Estee Lauder lipstick is a beautiful soft, almost tinted balm like lipstick. It’s in a beautiful pinky nude shade that is perfect for everyday. Whether it’s going to work, uni or just popping over to the shops, this is a great daytime lipstick as it not only gives a nice natural almost enhancing of your natural lip colour but also moisturizes the lips at the same time. This is the perfect creme lipstick as it is not thick at all when applied.  I find this lipstick very comfortable to wear as there’s no feeling of wearing anything on your lips because it is so lightweight. As such, there’s no urge to lick your lips or rub them against each other. The lipstick has a pleasant fruit like smell. It may be fig, if I’m correct. It applies so easily because it is creamy and gives just the right amount of shine to the lips. It has a light to medium pigmentation and can last for hours without the need to reapply. However, it is very soft and just from carrying it around in my handbag, it has broken and been dented, however, I’m still able to use it.

Maybelline Moisture Extreme SPF 15 – D160 Cool Watermelon – My choice for a weekend lip would be this Maybelline lipstick in the shade Cool Watermelon. It’s an amazing shade to wear to a small casual party during the week or the weekend without looking too made up. It’s an eye popping bold pink watermelon colour that may scare many but trust me, it looks amazing. It will instantly add some drama and a pop of colour to the face, perfect if you’re going for minimal makeup and a simple eye as these lips will definitely be the centre of attention. Application is both smooth and moisturising and it has even has a watermelon scent. I’m able to wear this lipstick for about 3-4 hours before needing to reapply if I am eating and drinking.

Ulta 3 Lipstick – 046 Prom Night – If you’re looking for that Hollywood, red carpet moment, then this is the lipstick for you! I actually wore this to my Year 12 Formal. As I had my makeup professionally done, I needed a lipstick to use to touchup throughout the night and I quickly purchased this at a nearby chemist for no more than $3 I believe. While this isn’t the bright red lip we’re accustomed to seeing on the celebrities, this slightly darker red lip shade is perfect for a night out, a big function or event. I wore this lipstick for 10 hours that afternoon/night and only needed to reapply once! Even after eating and drinking, this lipstick stayed put. It wasn’t drying and didn’t bleed into the surrounding foundation. It made my lips feel smooth and gave a small amount of shine. The pigmentation of this lipstick is very good.


So there you have it, my picks for what lipsticks to wear to a wide range of occasions. As I build up my lipstick collection, I’ll be sure to share with you all my new finds and future picks.
