Valentines Lip Picks πŸ’„

As it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I thought I would share with you my top lipstick picks for the occasion, both high end and drug store.

Whether you’re having a romantic evening, galentines drinks with your besties, a casual day time date or something in between I’ve rounded up the colours I would reach for.


For Valentines Day I like to opt for either a classic red or a deep pink or rose. So I have chosen Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Sectet Salma, Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick in Red Carpet, Seventeen Mega Matte in Roses are Red and Too Faced La Creme Lip Colour in Razzle Dazzle Rose.

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Secret Salma is a beautiful deep rose plum and the perfect altnerative to red. The collection name “hot lips” rings true to a perfect valentines lip choice too. It has a matte finish which means it will stay put after dinner and drinks and is one of the most comfortable matte offerings out there, albeit with a high end price tag!


The classic red in the form of Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick in Red Carpet is a sheer finish lipstick so is comfortable to wear. The Β£3 price tag makes it so affordable you can’t go wrong!

Another gorgeous sheer option is the Too Faced La Creme Colour in Razzle Dazzle RoseΒ which is a light rose colour and another comfortable option as it boasts such a creamy texture.


The Seventeen Mega Matte Lipstick in Roses are Red has the name that just screams Valentines ready! This choice is more of an orange toned red which isn’t as daringly dark as the MR Red Carpet. The matte finish means it has staying power and the rounded tip allows for an easy application and neat edges, perfect for topping up on the go. Another inexpensive drug store option.

What are your plans this Valentines and what lip colour are you opting for? Jay and I are going to eat our body weight in food at our favourite local Indian restaurant, because we’re romantic like that πŸ˜‰ I think I’ll opt for Secret Salma as knowing me I will get a darker colour all over my face! I’d love to know your plans in the comments below!

    Secret Salma is so pretty! I think I’ve ummed and arrhed over what shades of CT to get for too long now – I need to just bite the bullet and get one. I’d been thinking of getting one for wedding day (as I have rose gold shoes/jewellery/bag), and it will purely co-ordinate well ha, Secret Salma might be the perfect shade! xxx

    That Too Faced one is bloody beaut! They all are to be fair, but I’m absolutely smitten with that one in particular. I went for a bold pink for my Galentines night at the cinema – Chatterbox by MAC 😍 One of my all time faves.

    I really want a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick but I am trying to hold back on spending. Still, that Makeup revolution one sounds right up my street.
