It's no secret that I absolutely love lipsticks. I'm always expanding my collection and I go through obsessions/phases with different shades each season. Today I thought I'd share with you the lipsticks I reached for the most during 2014. It was so hard to choose these as I have a lot that I love, but I think it's fair to say that these are my ultimate favourites.

I think Pink Blush (far left) was my first ever lipstick. I bought it for my Year 11 prom back in 2011! Although I had an absolutely hideous taste in clothes/make up then, I've been in love with it ever since. It's such a lovely shade of pink and I haven't found a pale pink I like as much as this one since. It's a really pretty, understated shade which just adds that little bit more to a make up look/outfit.
Maxfactor's Heat (second on the left) is a lipstick that I acquired last year from my mum, who has apparently had it for years! It's probably a bit gross that I'm still using it but it's stood the test of time and I absolutely love it. Orange lipsticks are so on trend at the moment and they look great with a really pale eyeshadow look. Think Lucy Watson from made in Chelsea. I wore this a lot last spring, and have been reaching for it quite a bit recently, too.

The Rimmel by Kate Lipsticks are a huge drugstore favourite with loads of bloggers/Youtubers and I can see why. I have quite a few but my favourites are 01 (a classic red) and 04 (a dark purple). I wear the red all year round, and the purple was a huge favourite of mine in October/November time. I've heard loads of good things about shade 107 as well, which seems to be a deeper red and a sort of mixture of the two.
MAC's Sin is my first and only lipstick from the brand, and I absolutely adore it. I wore it pretty much every day from when I got it on Christmas Day right up until the beginning of January, and I'm sure I'll wear it a lot more during the coming winter months. You can read and in-depth review of it here.
