Lip Products - My Makeup Collection

I've never shown my complete makeup collection before, so I thought I could make it a little series as if I did it in all one post it would go on for days. Today I am going to show you my lip products as I have a large quantity of them. Some of these lip products you've heard you rave about them before and others I have really ever shown.


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink In The Afternoon
This was one of the first lipsticks I ever bought. It's a nice nude pink lipstick that can be worn the whole year round, in the brighter months just by itself or in the colder months a nude lip liner. The staying power isn't great due to it not being a liquid lipstick but it is comfortable on the lips and doesn't dry them out.

Sleek Lip VIP in Backstage
A bright coral that has a hint of chocolate is the only way to describe this Lip VIP. It has better staying power than the majority of lipstick, so I think it's a lipstick-liquid lipstick hybrid that have the comfort of a lipstick and the staying power of a liquid lipstick. There is also a lip gloss in the bottom of the tube but I personally don't really like lip gloss.

Benefit Benebalm
I've had this for ages too and reminds me of a more moisturising Maybelline Baby Lips. It is the first high end lip product I got and this was before I decided to try to go cruelty-free with my makeup. It's a nice lip balm and does the trick to add a little colour to your lips on a natural makeup sort of day.

Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Raspberry
I don't know why I even still have this as I've grown out of this shade. When I first started getting into makeup I wore more pinks, baby and girly pinks which I wouldn't go near now. The packaging is awful to say the least but it only cost like €3.30 so I couldn't complain.

Flormar Watermelon Balm
Another tinted lip balm and I much prefer this over Benebalm as it smells like watermelon, it has a nicer tint and is much cheaper. It isn't very moisturising but it has SPF 15. I suppose you win some you lose some.

Seventeen Lip Lustre Pink
I'm not really a lip gloss gal and I sometimes like putting this over another lipstick to add something. It is a very pale pink and contains a little shimmer that's quite cute.


Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Obsession
I like pairing this with my Revlon Pink in the Afternoon lipstick as it darkens it a little. I have noticed with these lip liners that you need to prep your lips before you use it as it makes your lips more dry looking. It is a whiny nude which goes with nearly every lipstick.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Birthday Suit
I talked about this in My Top 10 Under €10 post a couple weeks ago. This is a natural nude on me and has a great lasting power. Since it is a liquid lipstick it does go into the cracks of my lips.

Revlon Color Burst Balm Stain in Honey
This is another lipstick I have had since I started this blog. This is a pinky nude that contains a little shimmer which I like. I used to wear this the whole time when I purchased it but now I don't as often anymore.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam
Another cult favourite, I feel nearly everyone has one from the range. It is a nice bright red, not very bold but can gradually become more intense if you layer it. This was also in my Top 10 Makeup Products Under €10.

Kiko Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in 117
This is not as bright as the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream but paired with the lip liner it looks very bright. I love the packaging as it is so luxe for a drugstore lipstick. This is a lipstick-liquid lipstick hybrid and the majority of the lipstick lasted while I had dinner recently which I was surprised about.

Seventeen Lip Lustre Red
Another lip gloss, I don't think I've ever used this, so I can't really tell you my opinion on it. It has a nice red pigmentation though.

Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Red Diva
This has some long-lasting power and I usually only put this under a lipstick if I know I won't get to touch up for a couple of hours. Same formula as Obsession and has a strong red-pink vibe to it.

Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in On Fire
This has a very glossy texture and look to it, that might explain why it's called Colour Rush Balm. It is very similar to the Seventeen Lip Lustre but isn't a lip gloss. This lipstick has a really nice subtle red but the staying power isn't there at all. It can't survive eating or drinking.

Kiko Creamy Colour Lip Liner in 306
This is the matching lip liner for my Kiko lipstick, and they both work so well together as I already said when I use this liner it lasts much longer than the lipstick by itself. I haven't used it with any other lipstick yet but I will definitely start experimenting.


MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Kooky
My only bold lipstick, I was always afraid of bold lips but when I saw this in Edinburgh Airport for £3 I thought I might as well try it out. Firstly, the smell reminds me of Kool-Aid. I find that if I wear this and keep the rest of my look natural it washes me out but I feel that since it's nearing winter I might get a chance to wear this more often.

What lipsticks do you have?

Thanks for being awesome,


  1. What a gorgeous and varied collection you have! I love the different red shades x

    1. Thanks for commenting Amber! I have definitely delved more into the red lip products than pink at the moment.
