How many lipsticks do I really need to carry?♥

August 30, 2011

This is a post for all you lipstick junkies out there like me, I can never have too many! So I went to apply my lipstick after lunch today and found myself searching through my handbag trying to find the right colour, now normally I might carry 1 or 2 lipsticks but I realised for the last week I have been carrying 6 around. A few too many I think. So what colours do I carry around you may ask, well I’m going to show the shades that live in my bag, my ‘go to’ colours if you will.

Lets take a closer look…

Left to right clock wise:
♥New CID i-pout in Dusk
This is my new favourite nude, I haven’t worn a nude lip in quite awhile but the creamy rich pigmentation of this has won me round and I haven’t let it out of my sight since my eyes locked onto this last week. If you want a warm nude that won’t wash you out but sill give you that Kim Kardashian pout then this is one to check out.
♥Estee Lauder -Fuchsia Velvet
Another new(ish) lipstick that I;ve had for maybe 2-3 weeks but love the matte finish that gives you loud pink lipsticks. There will be a full review for this lipstick coming soon so keep an eye out for that.
♥MAC Saint Germain
This is a long standing love of mine it was one of the first MAC shades I picked up. I have been loving my bubble gum pinks alot again and this is a must have for any pink lippie lovers out there.
♥MAC Jazzed
I have had a bit of a love hate relationship with this particular lipstick, I got a friend to track one down but within a couple of months I sold it convinced it just wasn’t right for me. But it has found it’s way back into my vast collection and I’m not sure why but I love it. Perhaps when it first hit the scene I was such a nude lip girl that any colour didn’t look right, now that I am a full on colour lover I think I am more comfortable wearing it. Funny how things change.
♥YSL Rouge Volupte No1
Another nude I’ve come full circle I don’t typically reach for this if I am honset purely as these fade so quickly but the colour and feel is just too lovely to resist so I will always purchase YSL lipsticks. This is a very milky nude on me normally I go for this when I have darker eyes.
♥MAC All Styled Up
I believe this was limited edtion (maybe?) so not 100% sure if you can still buy it but never the less another firm favourite of mine. I have been going for this on an everyday basis recently, I find it so easy to wear no matter what I’m doing with my makeup that day. Perhaps my favourite pink lipstick right now – sorry to my abundance of other pink lipsticks!!
How many lipsticks do you carry around? As many as me? or more do share!

    I carry anywhere from 6-8 different lip products with me. They just keep adding up, I don't know how to keep the number down!

    I have 2 lipsticks and one lipgloss on me, but there's usually another one lurking about in the bottom. Nice collection x
