Three Confidence Boosting Lipsticks

I have a confession to make; I am a serious worrier. I worry about all of life's little problems instead of taking things as they come, I panic at the first obstacle, and I tend to get into a massive fuss about situations which will realistically never happen. I panic if I miss the train for work or submit an essay with a small spelling mistake, I feel constantly anxious for my family and friends if something bad has happened to them and interviews and public speaking terrify me. I find myself constantly thinking of what to say during conversations with large groups of people I don't know particularly well, and for most of those who know me well it would probably surprise you that I refer to myself as a social introvert. I despise people who embarrass you in front of large groups of people or make you the centre of attention when you don't want it at all. However, that doesn't mean I'm shy or that I can't be outgoing and bubbly in comfortable situations. Its just that certain things unnerve me, and when these situations occur I like to use make up to boost my confidence and project a bit of my personality...

Mac Lady Danger is an amazing shade. It really is the brightest pillar box red and will make any boring matte make up look just come to life instantly. I think this suits my personality too as I'm a bit kooky and I like to do things a bit differently from everyone else. This is probably not for everyone, but if you want a really bright colour that makes the lips pop then I really recommend this ultra bright shade. It will get you noticed and add bags of style to the simplest of little back dresses. Also everyone knows what's up with Mac products in terms of being super long lasting and having incredible colour pay off. This is a great variation on the traditional red lip and is a great addition to any red lip stick collection.

Secondly, I am IN LOVE with my YSL Rouge Volupte in 34 which I believe is called Rose Asarine both for its gorgeous packaging and amazing formula. These lipsticks are needed for anyone who loves the YSL gold packaging and likes to display make up proudly on their dresser. Its so long lasting and smells delicious; a bit like watermelon. I also love how this has a lovely sheen to it so its just that bit different to anything else I have in my collection. I'll admit that these are pricey products but they make me feel so glamorous and are worth every penny in my opinion!

Last but not least I recently received the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Revlon Red as a birthday gift but only started wearing it recently. This is the most classic of classic red shades and looks absolutely amazing with black winged eye liner and some seriously defined cheekbones. I love when I wear this with just black jeans and a white shirt it just adds a much needed touch of femininity and glamour without being over the top . I like that this is neither matte or glossy so it can be worn with a range of different make up looks and it looks great during the day and at night.

I would love to know if anyone else has any confidence boosting tips? What are your thoughts on these lip products?
