If it hasn't been obvious before this, I love lipstick. I think that that is the finishing touch of a makeup look, just like the icing on a cake. Without it, the look just isn't complete. There are many different brands, colours and finishes out there, so I thought that as a little series, instead of doing one big lipstick collection (which has grown significantly since my last one, which you can see here), I would show you them by brand. Let's kick this off with Ted Baker then shall we?
I got a set of Ted Baker lipsticks from my mum for Christmas, which I very obviously pointed her towards in the shop, which I think is the perfect set. It also comes with nail varnishes that match the lipsticks too, but I don't use them as much.
As you can see, there is one of every colour. There is:
* a brownish nude
* a pinkish nude
* a bright pink
* a bright red
* a berry red
* a berry purple
The lipsticks are a semi matte finish, which is so good as the colour stays on your lips for quite a long time, particularly the darker colours, but they don't dry your lips out. The pigmentation is also incredible as you can see from the swatches on my arm. The packaging is also absolutely beautiful and elegant, and quite unique.
I cannot find any original Ted Baker lipsticks online, but this set is on eBay if you would like to look at it here. It isn't the cheapest of brands, but it is cheaper than MAC and it would be a perfect set for any beginners because of the shades.
Have you got any of these lipsticks?
