The 'ME' Colour

After seeing this post on I immediately decided I had to do a version of it on my blog.

I have collected a fair amount of lipsticks since becoming such a makeup fiend and when I look into my lip product drawer, I find myself looking at a whole bunch of items that kinda look identical.

Let me describe this oh-so loved colour. My 'me' colour is a nudy-pink shade that very closely ressembles my actual lip colour.  It's a shade that goes very well with most makeup looks and works great as an everyday colour.  This is my favourite shade because it works very well for my complexion.

Here is my 'me' colour lip favourites :

L'Oréal Colour Caress Shine Stain in 102 Romy 
I love wearing this glossy stain over a lipstick for an extra little shine and staying power.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Posy Pink
Smashbox lipsticks are some of my favourites and this colour has been an almost daily staple for many many months.  A creamy opaque formula that doesn't dry out or wear off in a weird or unpleasant way.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Please Me
My most-worn, most-loved MAC lippie! This lipstick can do no wrong. It's the absolute perfect everyday pink shade.  This is the product that started the whole 'me' colour obsession.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Fanfare
A nice everyday colour as well. It's darker and more coral than 'Please Me'.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Peach Blossom
An excellent summer coral shade. A very creamy consistency and perfect with a smokey eye.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 101
Rimmel lipsticks are very good quality for the low price.  They are very opaque, smell yummy and wear quite well.

Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Lychee
This brand has climbed to the top of my wish list.  The formula is simply outstanding and feels amazing on the lips.  It's also food grade, which means it's good enough to eat.  Any product that does not contain any harmful ingredients needs more exposure.

Sephora Collection Colour Lip Last in No 07
The Sephora brand doesn't get much love in the beauty lover community, but once in a while there is a real gem that just needs to be mentioned. This lipstick is one of them.  It smells great and stays on ALL DAY!

Let me know if you have a shade of lipstick that you gravitate too and give a few examples in the comments :)



  1. This is the type of colour I love, I think it looks good on everyone. I love the look of MAC fanfare I don't have that colour, I might have to go and pick it up.
