6 Lipsticks To Get You Kissing

Have you ever made out with someone while wearing a bold red lip and all of a sudden realised,  Stolen Cherry looks a lot like Slaughterhouse Red?

I have and it’s not pretty.

But with Valentine’s Day around the corner and boys everywhere ready to lean in for the kiss, what’s a girl to do?

Sure, you could go for a light peck and save your good graces, but what if it’s like, someone you really fancy?

If closed mouth kisses are kept strictly for friends and family (as they should be), there’s only two ways to go:  steer clear and risk being friend-zoned or go in for the kill, in full lip-smacking, tonsil hockey glory. You already know which one I’d recommend. 

So, having tried out almost every combination of gloss, stick and stain in my bid to find a girl’s best wingwoman, I’m here to help guide you through 6 of my favourite lipsticks to get you kissing!



– Understated and fresh, this is the perfect colour if you have gone for a dark or smokey eye.
– Super moisturising – unlike other nude lipsticks I’ve tried, this one doesn’t dry out or crack on the lips.
– Not quite sheer, this nude has a depth of colour that gives really even coverage
– Easy to apply, no lipliner needed!

– Game changer- who wears orange lipstick?
– the kind of girl who is bold and audacious yet fun and playful
– she likes to try new things (including her men)
– orange is the new red.

This lipstick is quite sheer so depending on how adventurous you’re feeling you can layer it and go for a darker richer orange or go for a subtler touch if you want to play it cool.
