So this is the second one in a new mini series on my blog - you can read my top 5 nail polishes here. Today's post is all about the 5 lipsticks I would own if I couldn't have any others. This was probably just as hard as picking the nail polishes as I own so many lipsticks and they all having something that makes me love them. In all honesty I mainly wear nudes and could do this as my top 5 nudes but I have thrown in some brighter shades for variation.

I have been using this lipstick all the time since I got it so it was an obvious choice for this post. Nude Kate is a creamy biscuit beige, I find thats is the perfect brown nude that isn't too pale or dark and suits my skin tone perfectly. The formula of these lipsticks is also so comfortable to wear and feels like a balm on your lips but with an amazing colour pay off. The lipstick also has a square tip which I find makes it easy to apply to the edge of your lips.

This was my go to every day shade last autumn/winter as its just something a little different to a normal nude so. Brave is described as a pink-beige with white pearl, however, I would say its more of a mauve pink. This is a satin finish so has a slight sheen and is still really moisturising.

Obviously a red shade had to be included in my top 5. I don't actually wear red very often as I'm more of a pink/nude gal, however, if I was to go for red it would be this one! This Estee Lauder collaboration with Kendall Jenner was released last year and I don't think its available any more but there are similar shades on the above link. This shade is a true red with blue undertones and I find it suits me both when I'm tanned and pale. It has a matte finish but I find the formula to be creamy and glides on with ease.

This is probably more of a summer shade but its one of my favourites so I had to include it. This is from the new range of lipsticks by UD and I love the comfort matte formula, it's creamy and moisturising but with a matte finish. Unicorn is a peachy nude shade.

Of course I had to include another MAC shade, who can resist all their pretty shades and formulas?! This was one of my favourite shades last autumn and I wore it quite a lot, its one of those perfect wintery berry shades. MAC describe it as midtonal creamy plum shade and that is pretty true to watch the shade is. Its a satin finish like Brave so moisturising with a slight sheen to the finish.

What would you top 5 lipsticks be?!
