My Lipstick/Lipgloss collection

First of all I would like to say that I have not chosen this post as a way to brag about what I have or even to moan about what I don't have. I wanted to see just what colours I had in my lip collection and thought I would share it with you. I personally do not think I have a large collection of make up and my lip products are what I have the most of. What you will find is that most of the products in this post are very low end and I probably only have one or two high end products in my collection.

This is my total collection, I hasten to add I am moving house soon and I intend on having a proper vanity table with proper drawers for storage so this is just a temporary measure.

I decided to separate my collection into different colours to see what I have, as quite frankly I tend to go to the same products each time and there are a lot I haven't used for ages. I have picked out my 2 favourite colours from each group to show you!

This group is my clear/very very light lip products. In this I have a couple of 17 minis, 17 lipstick in Shell and a sun protection balm for your lips. My 2 favourites are the Miss Guided Lipsplash and the 17 lipstick in Shell. What I love about the Miss Guided lipsplash, which i totally forgot about, is the smell! It reminds me of the Soap & Glory Mother Pucker lipgloss, it is like a chocolatey orange smell which I adore. I got this lipgloss ages ago free with a magazine. The 17 lipstick is a fab colour, it is a very very light pink, almost white shimmery colour which looks fab with a smokey eye. Unfortunately I couldn't take a photo of the swatch as it wasn't showing up.

This group is my light pinks. If you have read previous posts of mine, you will know that I am obsessed with the colour pink and I love having pink lips. In this group I have a couple of products from ELF, my YSL Pink Diamond and the MUA Out There plumping gloss in Candy Pink.

My 2 favourite light pink products are the Lush! Celebrate Lip Tint and the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Lipstick in 004 Prime Pink. The ColorStay Liquid Lipstick is a gorgeous candy pink colour and I have written a review on these lipsticks here. The Lush! Lip Tint is a gorgeous shimmery colour that gives your lips just a hint of a pinky colour. The tint lasts quite a long time and I would say you need to reapply every couple of hours.

This group is my hot pinks. Unfortunately the colours did not come out as well as I would have hoped in these pictures. In this group I have my Barbie lipbalm in Bubblegum, my GHD lipgloss which I got as a free gift with my straightners and a mini 17 lipgloss.

My 2 favourites here are one in which I have lost the lid therefore it is unidentifiable, I do know the colour is called Cosmo and it is a gorgeous creamy deep pink colour. The other is a mini 17 lipgloss which doesn't have a name or a shade on the tube but it is a gorgeous pink with gold sparkly particles in (always a winner).

This is my group of reds and purples. I have more purples than I first thought, I think this may be an indication that this is my least favourite lip colour. I have more mini 17 lipglosses, a couple of Playboy ones and a Chilli Pepper one. 

My 2 favourites are my trusty Revlon Colorstay Liquid Lipstick in Stellar Sunrise and believe it or not a Playboy one. The ColorStay is pretty self explanatory by now, you can all pretty much guess that I am a HUGE  fan of them. The Playboy lipgloss is surprisingly well pigmented and stay on a long time. The only downside to them is that they are quite sticky.

Finally we get to the browns and nudes! Next to light pinks, these are my favourite colours to wear. In this little lot I have another Revlon ColorStay Liquid Lipstick, MUA Out There plumping gloss and my NYX lipgloss which I have a review for here.

My 2 favourites are my Accessorize lipgloss and my NYX lipgloss. The Accessorize is a gorgeous bronze colour with big pieces of gold shimmer is and the NYX is more of an orangy colour with small silver shimmer in it.

Well there you go my whole lip collection, like I said, I am not doing this to show off what I had, I just wanted to go through my collection and re-introduce products in to my life and take you along with me =D

I hope you enjoyed!
See you soon
