New High End Lipstick Purchases

A few weeks ago I went on a shopping trip to Exeter and I ended up hauling way too many beauty goodies. Lip products in particular, which is hardly surprising. I am a lip product junkie and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I have too many to count. To take a look at what else I hauled on my Exeter trip you can take a peek over on my Instagram.

The lip products I bought are all rather luxurious and high end from the likes of Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. No Drugstore lipsticks in sight. I couldn't help myself as I don't have a Debenhams or House of Fraser near me locally which is a shame(not so much a shame for my purse though). 

I bought a total of 6 lipsticks and they are all pretty much fail safe. I daren't go out of my safe zone so I stuck with the usual corals and pinks.

High End Lipstick SwatchesL-R; Hot Tutu, Rose Declamation, Obsessed, Lingerie Pink, Coral Jalouse, Craquante

First up is the Bobbi Brown Lip Color in the shade 'Hot Tutu'. It's the most striking coral-pink shade. It was love at first swatch for me and I think I'll get so much use out of it.

Next is the Rouge Dior lipstick in the shade 'Rose Declamation'. I fell completely in love with this shade when I first swatched it due to how moisturising and pigmented it appeared to be. What completely done it for me was the buy 2 and get a free gift offer. Who can resist that? I bought the most beautiful blush with this offer and I've been non stop using it. I'm pretty sure I'll be featuring it on the blog soon enough.

I'd been hearing so much about the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks lately so when I spotted the Urban Decay counter in Debenhams I had to take a look. I went on a crazy swatch spree and I came across the shade 'Obsessed'. If I'm honest it's quite alike to many lipsticks I have but the difference is the formula. It's super creamy and moisturising. It's something I always look for in a lipstick, although I am partial to a matte lip too.

The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte lipsticks have to be my favourite purchases in terms of the formula, shade and packaging. The packaging is so luxurious. No wonder I couldn't resist. I bought two different shades. The first one is 'Lingerie Pink' which is a light, baby pink shade and the second is 'Corail Jalouse' which is a beautiful coral. I've wanted a YSL lipstick for so long and I'm so happy with these. I can see myself using these a lot.

Lastly is the Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in the shade 'Craquante' which is a stunning coral. It was the first lipstick purchase on my Exeter trip and it's also my first Chanel purchases. I think I'll be saving this lipstick for special occasions rather than using it on a day to day basis due to how small it is. I think I'll be gutted when I run out of this lipstick. It's too pretty.
