Lipsticks were a beauty product that only started to become an essential in my life about three years ago. Since then I seem to have somehow built a pretty big collection so today I thought I would share my lipstick collection with you all.
I have a total of 7 high-end lipsticks from a mix of brands. My absolute favourite has to be my Chanel Rouge Coco hydrating creme lip colour lipstick in the shade Orchidee (the Italian shade name). It is a gorgeous deep redy-pink shade that immediately completes a makeup look and still keeps my lips relatively moisturised.
My first high-end lipstick purchase was from Bobbi Brown, the Bobbi Brown Lip Color in the shade Blondie Pink – the most perfect neutral lipstick ever. I also have a lipstick from Illamasqua’s Glamore Lipstick Collection in the shade Cherub. My first and so far only lipstick from MAC is from the Cremesheen selection; an amazing red shade (Brave Red).
Last year I picked up a Clinique Chubby Stick lipstick in the shade 07 Super Strawberry. I love the formula of this one way too much; it is incredibly moisturising and still adds colour to my lips. This year I picked up two more lipsticks from their Pop Lip Lipstick collection. I have the shades Melon Pop and Cherry Pop.
Working at The Body Shop previously definitely gave me a soft spot for their lipsticks – I love them all and would love to own every single shade from The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick collection.
I have the shades 110, 125, 130, 330, two 18’s (my favourite of the bunch) and 03. I also have 06 from the older design packaging.
As to the drugstore, Boots and Superdrug, I have a few lipsticks in my collection from quite a few brands.
First up is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm lipstick in the most amazing orange shade – Audacious. It is the only orange lipstick I own but the colour is stunning, definitely one you need to try if you haven’t already. I also have one of their Colorburst Lip Butters in the shade Candy Apple.
I have two of the Maybelline Colour Elixirs in the shades Petal Plush and Blush Essence. These are perfect if you are having a dry lip day but still want some colour on your lips.
Rimmel-wise I have two of their Lasting Finish Lipsticks. I have the shade 170 Alarm – a pure red lipstick. I also have the shade 107 from the Kate Moss Collection.
Two lip products that surprised me came from L’Oreal – the Infallible Lip Colours. I have the shades 110 Timeless Rose and 121 Flawless Fuschia.
From L’Oreal I also have two more products, one a firm favourite of mine, from the Colour Riche collection. I have the shade Eva’s Nude and can safely say this lipstick is one of the best formulas from the drugstore. Lastly I have one of their Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick but I can’t tell you the shade as it has rubbed off, oops. It is however a gorgeous mauve pink colour.
Ah, it is time for the last few lipsticks in my collection.
The Bourjois Color Boost lipstick in the shade 05 Red Island is a lush red lipstick with a very shiny finish, it is a lipstick I really don’t wear enough. The Artdeco Hydra Lip Booster is technically a lipgloss but the colour is so pigmented it had to be included in my lipstick collection – I have the shade 39. Another pigmented lipgloss is the Bourjois Effet 3D in the shade 23, this time a bright pink glittery shade perfect for parties. The last lipgloss I own is the Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss, a nude lightly glittery shade.
The final two products in my lipstick collection are very recent purchases but ones I have been beyond impressed with, they are simply amazing. They are Makeup Revolution’s Lip Lavas in the shades Forgiven and Tremor – definitely worth picking up. As to the shades Forgiven is a pure neutral shade, and Tremor is on the soft pink side of things.
Wow, well that’s my complete lipstick collection, 32 lipsticks! How many lipsticks do you have in your collection? What is your favourite lipstick?
