For a gal who never ever wore lip products if she could help it, I’ve amassed quite a collection. To be fair, I DO wear lipstick every day I wear makeup now, so they aren’t exactly going to waste. But also, these are another item that subscription boxes tend to dump at us and so I ended up with quite a few that way. Add in the advent calendar from last year and just being somewhat interested in lip products now and my collection has grown quite a lot. I want to tell you I will not be purchasing more lip products until I’ve moved some of these out of my collection, but I’ve got my eye on a couple right now.
Anyhow, let’s get started. First, I am going to post the Nyx advent calendar lip products. I am not going to go into great detail with them, but I’ve sorted them from left to right in order of how likely I am to use them. The first one, the intense butter gloss, is currently in my project pan.
The only products missing from this shot are a barbie pink matte that no one in my house could stand, and the two lip oils, one of which is in Miss Butterfly’s coat pocket and the other in my purse. I think, from left to right, I’ll probably work my way through everything including the dark brown and keep the others around for fun.
Next up, liquid lipsticks. I’ve decided that I am not actually a huge fan of liquid lipsticks. I am not going to purchase much more in that category.
I tried to sort these similar to above, left to right in order of how much I like them.
The smashbox liquid lip is not a dry down matte lipstick. I really love this one and it’s in my project pan. I love that it has amazing staying power and will last all day while still feeling like a lipstick. I will definitely be picking up another one of these once I’ve worked my way through some lip products.
The next two are Ofra. I like this formula quite a lot too. The first is a really orange toned brown and the next is more of a neutral toned brown.
I got another intense butter gloss after trying the purple one from the advent calendar. Since I don’t have much in the way of glosses, I added it here.
To Faced Melted Matte-nice formula and nice color, but I wouldn’t repurchase.
Tarte Tarteist lip paint-so drying, but great color. Won’t repurchase.
L’Oreal infallable paints-I am a sucker for a hot pink and I picked this one up pretty early in my makeup exploration journey last year.
Two Kat VonD liquid lips. I like the colors on both, the formula is drying and odd. When I first put these on they look terrible, but if I just wait it out, they end up looking nice. I’ll wear these and once done I won’t repurchase.
The next two are from subscription boxes and I don’t like them much at all. Pretty intense colors and they don’t feel fantastic on the lips.
Now we’ve got creamier lip products, and of these, I’ve got quite a few. These are the ones I am way more likely to wear from day to day.
These are my favorites. I’ve got an assortment of 4 bite beauty amuse bouche lipsticks. The first one is in my project pan, and I am just going to keep after these in my project pan until they are gone I think.
I’ve got two mac lipsticks. Velvet Teddy and Russian Red. I like them both and wear them both, but I rarely wear a red lip.These are matte formulas and I can see myself repurchasing them sometime when I am finished with a bunch of products.
Make Up For Ever sample I got in a subscription box, this color looks really lovely and I enjoy the formula as well.
The Bobbi Brown crushed lip color-this is one of my all time favorites, I adore the formula and adore how it looks on my lips. Will repurchase when I’ve moved through my lip products.
Hourglass GIRL lip stylo-this one looks fantastic and feels fantastic as well. At some point I caught Miss Butterfly using it and I got downright mad. She’s generally allowed to use what she likes, but I had to put a few of these off limits because I love them TOO much.
A Stila lipstick I really enjoy but haven’t worn much this year. It has a great balm feel and a peppermint scent. I like it and should consider panning it.
Nudestix matte lip and cheek pencil-This is a matte formula I don’t like much. It dries down, it’s pretty orange, and I just don’t love how it wears on me.
TreStique-this is a nice little bright color that I’ll absolutely pan at some point. But more summery, so I am waiting on that.
Two flower beauty lipsticks. One is in a more satin finish, and it’s a very bright coral color, and the other is in a warm nude matte. I like both of these quite well. I chose these specifically because I wanted some lip products and I am glad I still enjoy them after all these lip products entered my collection.
Oryza lipstick from a subscription box. The color is intense, I’ve worn it once. Won’t repurchase.
INMO lipstick-I got this in a December subscription box and haven’t even tried it on yet. At the time I was in the middle of my advent calendar challenge, and since I am not a huge red wearer, I just never put it on.
You’ll notice I really don’t have a ton of gloss in my collection. This is because I am really not a huge fan. I’ve had a few buxom glosses, one I panned and the other two I gave to Miss Butterfly. Every other gloss that has entered my collection in a subscription box since has been handed off to her as well. She wears them a ton, so it’s perfect.
I think I managed to pan 3 lip products last year, two full size and one mini. So, I am really hoping that I’ll be able to easily work my way through the minis I am currently panning. I think I’d like to get my lip product stash down to say-10 lip products total? Maybe less? And each of those would serve a specific purpose. It’ll take more thought, but that’s what I am hoping to see. I am going to start with the minis and then take it from there.
