I don’t normally buy a lot of make-up (although I think my family would disagree) but with December being home to both my birthday and Christmas I ended up with a lot more lip colours than usual. With so many different colours and brands I thought a lipstick haul would be a good way to show them all off. I don’t usually wear make-up when I’m at work, and I don’t really wear it much at weekends, but with all the new little bits and bobs I’ve got I think I might have to start wearing it more often.

If you need two arms to try and show all the different colours then it might be a good sign to stop buying in one month.

The first little bit I got was in a Soap and Glory make-up box from my sister as a birthday present. I love the Soap and Glory make-up sets and I am so glad I got this! I love the lip lacquer that comes with it.
|You can tell I’ve used this a few times|
It doesn’t have a matte finish, which is the only real issue I have with it, but the colour is so pigmented and you don’t need a lot to make it look good. I do advise a bit of blotting though, and to check it doesn’t get on your teeth! Never a good look.
The next thing I bought was this little set from Morrison’s. Honestly, I bought it because the £2 price tag was too tempting and I’m really glad I did. I don’t have any colours like this and it is really matte in it’s finish. You just have to make sure that it dries before you drink anything! I like that it came with its own lip pencil as well to match perfectly. I don’t know how often I will use this though, as I am rubbish with lip pencils.
|If any of you have heard of this before, let me know!|
I think it might be the most versatile colour that I have. It goes with so many different looks, it’s such a nice and neutral shade.
This little crayon I got in a No7 Cosmetics Christmas bauble is similar in that I would wear it with nearly anything! The deep wine colour is beautiful and I have to say it may become a new favourite. I love the way that lip crayons glide on so easily and they don’t feel tacky or sticky. This one also doesn’t make my lips feel dry after applying it, which is always a bonus in my books.
|It’s so beautifu!|
I think it’s one that definitely suits me. It’s not too bright to make me look washed out and pale but just the right deepness to make my lips look that little bit better.
|Definitely think this shade suits me really well|
This little Soap and Glory travel cases with lip glosses was a little treat to myself. It was in the 3 for 2 selection at boots and I needed an extra little something for the offer. It’s always good to be able to spoil yourself without feeling too guilty about it. I do love the colours in this but I don’t think they are pigmented enough for my taste.
|At least I have somewhere to store all my lip colours now!|
I like bold block colours and these are definitely not that. They are good in their own way though. Now to find somewhere to use them without the wind sticking my hair to my lips!
|They are so cute and tiny!!!|
The last thing I got was another gift from my sister but this time for Christmas. I’d been looking at this Superdry set when I’d gone to buy Christmas presents in November, the colours themselves look exactly like the sort of things that I could use regularly. But unfortunately the two more nude shades are so pale you can barely tell that you’ve been wearing them. They give a bit of a sheen and shimmer to your lips but it’s not very bright. The fluorescent pink, however, does have some good pigment. I know I will use these, the fluorescent pink still colours my lips great. But I’m not sure about the Angel Pink.
|I love the packaging for this|
As I said before, I think the only way I am going to get through this lot is if I start wearing make-up every day. I’m not sure that will ever happen but I might have to try and do it a few more days in the week to get through it all.
