So, I have a bit of a confession. I’ve already admitted to being super low maintenance chick (read my post here) but it’s time to CONFESS beauty bloggers that I only own 7 lipsticks.
I know, I know, BUT hear me out. I don’t like waste, clutter or spending money and each of these lip colours has a very specific purpose and place in life. I use all of them. And I love all of them. And honestly, I don’t need anymore.
So here is what has made the cut to join my very exclusive club which is; my lipstick collection:
MY EVERYDAY NUDE
This is a lovely, neutral pinky brown which is really good for everyday/ work or a natural makeup look. I love the consistency because it’s really moisturising and has a fairly decent staying power – although does fade off a bit after a few hours.
MY HOLIDAY LIPSTICK
Ola senorita! This cute coral is perfect for holidays and looks gorge with a bit of a tan (or bronzer). As with all MAC lippys it’s good quality and lasts for ages.
MY BRIDAL LIPSTICK / 2ND CHOICE NUDE
I bought this for my bridal makeup and I’ve fallen in love with it and now alternate it as a second choice for my everyday nude. Although it is so similar in name it’s actually quite different to Angelic; much more pink and girly. I love it.
MY FEELING A BIT JAZZY LIPSTICK
As you can see, this lipstick has been well used and well worn at the bottom of my clutch bag. So well worn in fact the name has rubbed off and I don’t know the same of it! Anyway, it’s a baby pink lipstick which I usually layer up with a bit of gloss when it’s paaaarttyyyy time.
MY FEELING VERY JAZZY LIPSTICK
Only used with caution. This is very bright. I classify it as a lipstick because the colour is so strong but it comes in a sort of gloss format. You apply it and it dries matte and really, really strong. It looks fab when wanting to make a lip statement on a night out.
MY RED ONE
Everyone’s got to have a bright red lippy right?! I don’t wear it much, but I do love this one. It’s a really deep red but the best thing is that it stays put all night and doesn’t smudge at all! Perfect red lips every time.
So, as you can see, they all know their place! And I don’t need too much space in my makeup drawer for them. Generally, I don’t like to have too much choice in term of makeup colours, knowing where I stand with my special few is much more up my street. Plus, they are tried and tested and I love them all – so why deviate?!
How many lipsticks do you own?
