TOP FIVE | Bold Lips for Pale Skin.

NARS Timanfaya, Rimmel In Love With Ginger, Maybelline Hot Plum, Urban Decay Bang, MAC Impassioned.

NARS Timanfaya
For my final May Ball at university I knew I wanted to do graphic liner and a true orange lip. After coming across Timanfaya on ASOS I was sold and put it in my basket immediately! The shade is a bit more red than I had initially imagined - my own fault for online shopping for make up on a whim! - but it definitely has a distinct orange hue to it! It's really bold and beautiful, plus, because it is far the Satin Lip Pencil line it is super pigmented and comfortable on the lips! Winner!

Maybelline Hot Plum
One of the standout colours of my entire lipstick collection right here! I mentioned this in my TOP THREE Pinks post a little while ago so I'll link that here for you to get to know more of my opinion of this! Even the swatch makes me want to rock it, it's just beautiful! And, I can't believe that it's from a drugstore line given how unique and pigmented it is! 10's all around.

Urban Decay Bang
Everybody needs a good pillar-box red shade in their collection and because the formula to the Revolution lipsticks is so moisturising, crazy pigmented and long lasting I really do think this is one of the best out there! The undertones make it classic and it makes your teeth look beautifully white! I think it'll look great on a range of skin tones and in my opinion it works particularly well on pale skin!

Rimmel In Love With Ginger
Again, I've spoken about this recently in my TOP THREE series so I'll link that up here so that you can get more of a feel for it! Its a very standout red and one of my absolute favourites!

MAC Impassioned
This one is perhaps the black sheep of this post because it's a lot more of a girly pretty colour rather than edgy! I would call this a romantic bold, it looks stunning against pale skin, is opaque as anything and wears really well because it is an Amplified finish! I bought this because I saw a Chelsea Wears GRWM ages ago (can't seem to find it now) and I was overwhelmed by how pretty it is! So glad to have this in my collection, I don't think I have another shade similar!

So there are my favourite bolds, any recommendations ladies?
