My Lipstick Collection..


Like many people I own a lot of lipsticks. Most of mine have gone unused at the bottom of my makeup bag whereas others are really starting to get past their time! I've seen a lot of lipstick posts so today I dug them all up and though I'd share them with you and show you my favourites.

Rimmel Lasting Finish in 014 - Sweetie and 004 - Indulgence.
Indulgence (right) is one of my favourite lipsticks, it comes out a soft Barbie pink colour and I usually wear it in the evening as it's a bit too bright for daytime. I haven't worn Sweetie as much but it is a nice fuschia colour suitable for nights out. I mainly stick to pink lips because of my hair and pale skin!

Revlon Super Lustrous in 720 - Fire & Ice
 A lot of people have said rep lipsticks look good on blonde hair so I tried to convince myself they would suit me but I'm still yet to find one that does! Blondes are meant to suit shades that have a blue undertone but this more of an orangey coral red. This is one that has sat in my makeup bag unused as I'm not brave enough to wear red on a night out.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in 020- Lovesick Passionee
These balm stains are a cheaper alternative to Clinique Chubby Sticks. They are super moisturising and leave behind a hint of colour. I love this fuschia shade, it is subtle enough for daytime, and I'll be buying more of the pinky shades!
Rimmel Moisture Renew in 620 - Coral Queen
 I got this lipstick in  a gift set a while ago for subscribing to a magazine. The moisture renew range isn't as drying on the lips as some others however it isn't moisturising like a balm. I don't often wear this coral colour but I might be adventurous and try it out soon.

Rimmel Colour Show Off in 020- Shake Up Pink & 220 - Shocking Pink
(Starting to notice a theme that most of my lipsticks are Rimmel?) As you can see, Shake Up Pink is one of my favourites and has seen a lot of wear! I love this for day and night wear, it is a really soft colour. Shocking Pink is more of a bright fuschia that I sometimes wear in the evening.

Barry M in 121
Another lipstick I got when trying to convince myself that red would look good on me! This one is more of a pillar box red and unfortunately doesn't do anything for my skin tone! Have any blondes found a good red lipstick that suits them? I'd love to know as I struggle with it!

Another of my favourites! Last year Topshop released a limited edition range of makeup and this lip tint in 'Crystal' was amongst it. This is a pinky lip tint that adapts your to own lip colour (to be honest I wasn't sure whether it did actually change colour or not and wasn't too fussed as I loved the colour anyway!). I was gutted when they stopped selling it and have been trying to hunt it down on Ebay or look for alternatives. I think I may have finally found an alternative - Loreal's Universal Lip Glow!
