I'll forever love lipstick and Nars Audacious is bloody marvellous (I'll do an updated collection soon), so creamy, pigmented and hydrating. You can read all about my love for Nars Audacious | here |
Other than a matte lipstick, the majority of traditional lipsticks are not drying as they're not meant to stay on for hours like a liquid and we're used to reapplying throughout the day.
I have many more nude lipsticks than brights as I always worry that I'll end up with the bright colour all over my face (I don't know how, I don't rub my face, but you know...) and on a daily basis, nude is more wearable.
A hydrating lipstick is always top choice when my lips are particularly chapped and a vibrant colour is essential for the summer months, not that we've had much summer in the UK; so I've added a few vivid shades to my collection this year.

Quick tip: A mirror is essential when applying a bright lipstick as is a lip liner as it gives you a guide to follow.
