My lipstick collection- with swatches of all colours :)

Hi everyone!

Remember when I asked on twitter what post I should prepare at the weekend?  Well... Most of you said- lipstick collection, so here it is :) It took me ages to prepare it, but it was worth it. I am glad I did it, as some of my lipsticks were old, so I binned them and I only kept the ones I can still use - a total of 36 lipsticks (I think). I actually thought that the number will be higher, but I think that under 50 is a reasonable amount :)
I could probably live with just 10, but let's face it- I love makeup too much :)

I picked my favourite shades and I reviewed most of them already so I will link all the reviews just in case you want to have a look. Most of the shades are recent purchases, like the AMAZING YSL Rouge Volupte in Sensual Silk. I adore this shade- it is the perfect nude/beige, very hydrating and creamy and I will be reviewing it soon. The next one is the beautiful Vegas Volt by MAC and you can find the full review here.

MAC Fanfare was my first ever lipstick- a giveaway prize from Kimmi (thank you lovely!) review here. The Lancome lipstick is my most worn colour and I will probably need a new one soon. If you would like me to review it, let me know :) Clarins Joli Rouge in shade 710 is my recent bargain purchase- it was £3.99. It is gorgeous!

The Lily Lolo lipsticks are amazing- I got one as a sample and ordered another shade the same day, because I fell in love with the formula. You can find my review here. Next, we have L'Occitane Pivoine Delicate (review here). It is a perfect sheer peachy shade.

I also love MUA lipsticks and shades 15 and 16 are my favorites. I wasn't in love with the first one at the beginning, but I kept reaching for it and I really like it now :) Review of shade 15 here. Another new addition to my collection I seriously love is the Youngblood lipstick in shade Tangelo- it is a gorgeous orange colour, creamy and moisturising. You can see how it looks like on the lips here. The last one in my favourites is the DuWop Private Red lipstick and you can read the full review here.


THE REST:

Trying to take photos with a very nosy toddler around isn't easy :)
