If theres one thing I have a lot of in my makeup collection, it’s lip products! I haven’t purchased any new ones for quite a while, as I’m trying not to let my collection get too ridiculous. I’m definitely going to try and use the ones I currently have, before I buy any others.

I got the Clinique Nude Pop mini as a free gift in a magazine, and it’s a lovely lightweight nude. Its really moisturising on the lips, but pigmented too. I think its probably one of the most universal nudes thats out there. Maybe because its such a small product it gets lost in my makeup drawer?

Next up, is Tanya Burr Pink Cocoa. It took me an age to get my hands on this as it was sold out everywhere. It’s a bit more matte than I expected, and for that reason I need to make sure my lips are hydrated before applying it. When I wear this I always feel like my lips look a lot bigger and plumper, so I’m all for that! It kind of has the ‘grunge’ vibes that I love, especially teamed with a t-shirt, jeans and some messy hair.

I’m kinda cheating with the next one, the Rosie For Autograph Lip Glossy. As you would expect, this doesn’t last for ages on the lips, but it always looks so natural with a pretty shine that makes me want to wear it more often.

I wanted to include a red into this post, as I literally don’t think I’ve worn one THIS YEAR. How bad is that! The one which suits my skin tone the most (that I have) is definitely this Topshop lipstick in Rio Rio. Its not often I feel brave enough to wear a bold lip, as I think that as soon as I’m in public people are staring at me! On days when I have the confidence, I want to rock this.


Do you have a lipstick you want more wear out of?
