Lip products collection

Saturday, 25 April 2015







To start, my acrylic drawer is from Muji - if you are looking for a way to store your makeup, I would definitely recommend you check these out as they are really affordable and are of a high quality. I have four drawers in total: one for face products; another for eye products; the third drawer contains palettes plus a few random products that didn't really fit in a category and finally I have my lip drawer. In here, I store lip balms, lip glosses and lipsticks; I don't own any lip liners in case you are wondering!

In terms of lip balms, I don't tend to spend too much money purchasing them. Actually, all of the lip balms in my drawer, at the moment, have been given to me as a present which is really kind. The first two are from the brand Extracts which were in a pack of three from Marks and Spencer's - I have used the other one up, it was really nice and smelt like coconuts! To the right, there is another lip balm that is from Marks and Spencer's and next to that my Snow fairy lip tint. This is so good, the colour lasts and it smells exactly like my beloved shower gel, almost good enough to eat! My final lip balm is from Model's Own, this is my least preferred product as it moisturises your lips only momentarily during application. 

It would be a long post if I went in to all my lipsticks/lip glosses in detail so I will just mention my favourites and list all of them at the bottom. Probably the most vibrant lip product I own is one of Rimmel's Apocalips - on my swatches it is the second one from the right. I love wearing this if I have a simple outfit on to brighten everything up; from experience I would say start with a light layer and build it up because it can get very intense. Another favourite is my Tanya Burr's lip gloss in Afternoon Tea, it smells so nice - almost good enough to eat - with scent of strawberry laces running through it. I like to apply this on its own because it is well pigmented. Finally, my favourite lip product is my Urban Decay  lipstick in Sheer Obsessed. This is my go to lipstick, as I am writing this, I am wearing it. I find that is moisturises my lips very well but has a great staying power!
