lipstick, liquid lipstick, lip liner and balms collection 2017, pink lipsticks, brown lipsticks, nude lipsticks, berry lipsticks, red lipsticks

Yesterday, over on Instagram I asked if anybody would be interested in seeing my lipstick collection and many said yes, so here it is. You should follow me on @whatsarahwrites if you haven’t already for updates, sneak peeks and other general stuff (shameless promotion right there I know).

This is quite a long post as I included all of my lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, lip liners and balms. Please bear in mind that some of the shades came out a different colour in the photos than real life. You may either think that this is too many to own or too little but to me it’s just right, ok maybe I have a few too many!

Pinks

Left to right: 

Essence Lipgloss Babydoll's Favourite // This was one of the first makeup items that I bought and I don't wear it as much today. It is a very sheer colour and perfect for someone who just want a hint of coral and shimmer on their lips.

Jelly Flower Lipstick 2 Cherry* // This beautiful lipstick has an actual flower encased in it that unfortunetly did not come out ion these photos but you can check it out in this review. It is a lovely sheer pink that is more of a stain.

Essence Matt Longlasting lipgloss 03 Girl of Today // I purchased this last summer and it has been one of my favourites. Although it states that it's matte I feel like it has a more of a satin finish as it never really dries down. This doesn't really bother me as I love the pink colour (that is much lighter than the photo suggests) and it also smells delicious.

Kiko Creamy Colour Comfort Lip Liner 303 // Another recent addition that you might have already seen on my instagram. It's nice and creamy and it makes it easier to fill in the lips within the line.

Kiko Smart Lipstick 903 // I used to wear this so much a long time ago but now I feel like it's a bit *too* pink for my liking.

Kiko Smooth Temptation Lipstick 04 // I reach for this quite a lot as it's very creamy, sits well on the lips and I love that the end is smaller as it makes application much easier. 


Nudes

Left to Right:

Essence Longlasting Lipstick 11 Nude Love //  I don't usually wear this on it's own as I'm not too fond of the barley there lips. On the other hand I love to blend it with darker shades or on top of other lipsticks to create that 3D effect.

Gosh Velvet Touch 122 Nougat // This one is unfortunately running out as it is a very loved lipstick in my collection. It's very creamy and has a glossy finish.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream 436 Birthday Suit // This is definitely my favourite out of all the lipsticks that I own. It's a gorgeous colour, easy to apply and most importantly it doesn't dry out my lips.

Mac Matte Lipstick Velvet Teddy // Another favourite of mine has to be this lipstick. Again it's matte without being drying and the perfect shade of my lips but better.

After 90 Charming Lipstick 19* // Not really something that I reach out for a lot but it's a lovely matte shade.

Browns

Kiko Smart Lipstick 925 // This is such a lovely warm shade that I love to wear during Autumn. I admit that it's not as long lasting but the affordability makes up for it.

Popfeel Lipstick B16* // This is a lovely matte brown lipstick that I reviewed in the Rosegal makeup haul last January.  

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Liner Capuccino // This lipstick doesn't look as good on it's own but it's great for using as a liner underneath darker lipsticks or to blend it in with other shades. It's very creamy and doesn't drag the lips.

Berries

Essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick 09 I Feel Pretty // This is a lovely build-able sheer lipstick that is great for when you want a toned down berry lip look.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 084 Amethyst Shimmer // I used to reach out for this a lot more than I do now. It's a lovely berry shade with a hint of shimmer as the name suggests.

Makeup Revolution Lipstick Rebel with Cause // This has a more purple tone rather than a red one so it's a bit different to the other berry lipsticks that I own.

Kiko Milano Matte Liquid Lip Colour 05 Brick Red // I recently bought this while I was in Syracuse, Sicily. It's a gorgeous deep berry shade that I'm in love with, although it is a bit on the drying side.

Golden Rose Lipstick 124 // My go-to every festive season is this dark lipstick. I love the shade and it also smells like roses!


Reds

(I misplaced the Kiko lipstick so ignore it in the photo above)

Catrice Infinite Shine Lipgloss 120 Little Red Dress // I prefer to wear this on top of another lipstick like I did in this look as it's not as opaque on it's own.

Essence Longlasting Lipstick 02 All You Need is Red // As I mentioned in my previous post, I had forgotten this lipstick bu t I'm hoping to bring it back out this Christmas.

Revlon Creme Lipstick 225 Rosewine // I usually prefer this red lipstick as it is not as out there as the other one but still gives off the same vibe.


I hope that you enjoyed this post and now have a few suggestions for new lipsticks to pick up!
