Following on from yesterday's post about my serious wardrobe downsize, I've also made a big effort to really clear out my beauty stash. One of the things I seem to hoard the most is lipstick; I don't wear anywhere near enough to justify the amount I had, and I seemed to be holding on to some that were far too old. I got rid of anything that was past it's best date-wise, and tried to slim it down to the shades that I actually wear! My collection is now much smaller but I'm pleased with it as it's all shades I wear, so I thought I'd share my favourites!
The Nude: Mac Honeylove
I treated myself to this shade for my graduation, I'd been after the perfect nude for a long time and went on a recommendation from Rosie which turned out to be absolutely perfect! It's a gorgeous warm nude and one I absolutely love!
The Hot Pink: Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu
No collection is complete without a hot pink right? Yu is the perfect bold pink for brightening up a rainy day. I prefer bright pinks over reds so this one is one of my favourites!
The Everyday Pink: Mac Lovelorn
This one is a nudey pink for when you're after a bit of colour but without it being too much. With a nude eye this is a great day-to-day shade!
The Berry: Urban Decay Sheer Revolution in Shame
This one looks super dark in the stick but makes a gorgeous dark berry red on the lips. The formulation is super glossy so is more like a heavily tinted balm. This is the one I always reach for on a night out!
The Dark Nude: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Very Victoria
Possibly my most luxury makeup item, this one is my 'smart' lipstick, one I use when I'm dressing up a bit! It again looks really dark as it is but creates a lovely light brown nude, one I find really compliments my skin tone and warms up my complexion!
The Almost Red: Clinique Pop in Poppy Pop
The latest addition to my collection which is rapidly becoming one of my favourites! I had some boots points saved up and after trying this on a while ago, I decided I needed it in my collection! I'm not really a red kinda girl but this pinkish coral red is a gorgeous shade for when I'm feeling brave with my lip colour!
