my favorite lip products of 2011

Hey dolls
so before 2011 i never ever used to wear lipstick as i wasn't to keen on makeup. but at the the start of last year i come across the rimmel section in boots, and this one lipstick caught my eye. ever since, i've become obsessed with lip products, and i honestly dont think i could now live without some of my favorites.

i think the elf products are my overall favorites. probably because of the price, but i also love their huge colour range. the matte lip pencils are amazing, ive fallen in love with every single colour and they have been a staple throughout 2011. they only cost £3.50 so i ordered more than one! and elf are always having offers on and free posting, so they usually come in even cheaper. i have natural, tea rose and praline.

i also have a few lipsticks from their mineral range, and my favorites are party pink, runway pink and cheerful cherry. these are also £3.50 and i think they're amazing for the price!

when ASOS we're having a huge sale, i ordered a few NARS products. one being a 'velvet gloss lip pencil' in club mix. this is a really dark purpley colour which is really lovely for the winter. this is the only nars lip product i own, so i'll be looking into purchasing more in the future!

i bought 'infrared' from topshop after all the hype on youtube, and it really is a lovely colour which i loved throughout autumn of 2011. topshop lipsticks are £8, which is quite expensive but i think it was worth it as this colour is really different to others that i own.

when i was in paris in the summer, i went into sephora for the first time. i picked up a maniac mat lipstick in mat 07; it's a lovely matte lipstick which has orangey peach tones which was really lovely in the summer, and i love the smell!

at the beginning of 2011 i really loved a rimmel lipstick in spotlight beige. i wore it everyday to school, and couldn't get enough of it. and when i went to repurchase the lipstick, i couldn't find it anywhere and they were sold out online, so i went without it for about 5 months. but recently i found it in my local superdrug so i stocked back up and i still love it :)

I came across the brand sleek in the summer. i love a lot of their products, especially the lipsticks. i own quite a few as they're really reasonably priced. the one pictured is 'bare all' which is a matte lipstick, and it's an everyday peachy-colour. 

pictures are taken and edited on my iPhone, hence why they're not amazing quality! hope you've had an amazing weekend!

love ellie. xo
