Luxury Lipstick Must Haves

By Molly Fallon

There is something about a luxury lipstick that entices me in every time, the buying experience, the heavy luxurious packaging, that moment when you pull it out from your handbag and all heads turn to watch you apply your lipstick. 

It's almost like putting on my very own powersuit every time I reapply my lipstick throughout the day. Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Estee Lauder - you name it, I've probably tried it and it's taken me a long time to narrow down my absolute favourites and prioritise my luxury repurchases.

The luxury lipstick world can be seriously daunting at times, brands shoving this lipstick and that lipgloss in your face at crazy prices and then before you know it, you've got multiple products hidden in the back of your draw all unused and unloved. This is why I've delved deep into my collection and really pinpointed the shades and brands that I think seriously hit the nail on the head when it comes to high end lipsticks.

1. Chanel Rouge Coco in Adrienne 

I feel like Adrienne is a such a classic shade to pick when buying your first ever Chanel lipstick. The shade is so universal and easy to wear that it would suit most skin tones. With or without a lipliner, Adrienne is one of those shades that I wear when I have absolutely no idea what lipstick to pair with the rest of my look and I know I'll be able to reapply it on the go with out worrying about it being uneven.

Another Chanel favourite of mine is the Rouge Allure in Captivante, a more plummy, almost metallic shade with hints of gold running through it. It's perfect if you're going for a deeper lip without fully committing to the full on deep purple lip.

Let's also not forget the unbelievably beautiful packaging - it's what every girls makeup bag needs!

2. Charlotte Tilbury KISSING lipstick in Nude Kate 

Do you remember when I said that Adrienne by Chanel is a shade that would suit multiple skin tones? Well this next luxury pick is one that I feel only really more olive to dark skin tone gals can really pull off. I believe it's the lightest shade in Charlotte Tilbury's KISSING collection and it is definitly my favourite out of them all. It's the perfect peachy nudish shade to complete a bronzy golden makeup look or to wear on its own to add a slight colour to the lips

I love to apply a lipgloss on top to create a really glossy and lusterous look!

3. Ciate X Olivia Palermo in Cashmere 

Ciate is a brand that I never thought would (a) venture into the makeup world and (b) a brand that I would actually ever buy makeup from. However, when I saw that they had created some beautiful lipstick shades in collaboration with Olivia Palermo, an absolute style icon, I knew I had to get my hands on the nudes. At £19 a pop, the lipsticks really are up there next to Chanel and Charlotte Tilbury in price and packaging. The formula is so creamy but finishes slightly more matte than my CT or Chanel faves, which is something I quite like and obviously justifies the reason I bought them - they're completely different to the rest of my nude lipsticks...right?

If Ciate is a brand you haven't ventured much into other than their nail varnishes then the Olivia Palermo collection is something you might want to get your hands on - but be quick, there isn't much left!
