5 Barely There Lip Shades

The lipsticks we never talk about... 

There is a time and a place for every type of lipstick, and as much as I love a matte, pigmented shade... I must admit I find myself reaching for a quick wash of colour on my busiest days; the days where I run out the door with no makeup on... or the days I opt to not wear it (like the 12-hour shifts in the Hospital). 

These are the shades I reach for when I need to feel a little more human, a little brighter, a little less corpse-like. Along with adding some colour - I love them to hydrate too, dual purpose, perfect for placement.  

This one is the boldest shade of my non-lipsticky lipsticks. a sheer, shimmery plum shade which seems to just make my lips look full and healthy. Plus the packaging is completely extra and OTT, but I love it. 

I use this constantly, the scent is so nice, and it adds a pink shade without being too much. This is one which will also hydrate your lips while looking pretty too. A definite go-to on the days where my lips are wrecked. 

The classic colour changing lipstick. Green to a pink. This shade is pinker than I would typically like, but as it is sheer it is easier for me to wear and still feel comfortable. 

This one is definitely the prefered colour changing, not only is it yellow, it is more coral or warmer in tone once it is applied onto the lips. I find it more flattering on me, and I wear this all the time now. 

My sweet Mum actually bought me this at Stobo Castle. So it has good memories alongside it being really nice to wear. This one actually stays in my car now, which means it is used constantly. Such a beautiful shade - and the scent is fab too. 

please ignore my sore wrist/hands...

I think subtle lipstick or tints are definitely underrated. They deserve more love. Which ones are your favourites?
