Lipstick Collection

As you may or may not know right now... I love lipstick. There's just something about wearing lipstick and having lipstick that I absolutely love and enjoy.  

More recently, in my ipsy glam bag that I get monthly, I've been getting a lot of lipstick samples but I've also been buying my own lipstick. Over time, I've increased my collection by a lot, and I wanted to do a post on the lipsticks that I have and which ones I love and which ones could be better. 

So if you like lipstick, stick around!

(I did my best to round up the links and prices, but not all of the colors I have are still available in stores/online.)

The most recent additions to my lipstick collection are these 6 Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip shades. I've heard so many good things about them, several of those things being from youtubers that I know and love, so I decided to treat myself and get some of them for myself to try! I have to say, I absolutely love them! The color payoff is amazing, they dry perfectly matte, and they don't smudge or wear off. I drank a can of soda and none of it came off onto the can or smeared around on my mouth. This is a date lipstick, for sure - if you're going on a dinner date or any other kind of date where lips are involved, this is the type of lipstick I would recommend because it's not moving after it drys on your face!

($6.00 for each one)

The Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks were the very first lipsticks that I purchased for myself. It's no surprise that I love Zoe (Zoella), and one of her most worn lipsticks is Rimmel Kate Moss 107. I don't have that particular color because I didn't think it looked the best on me, but I did get several other shades that I really love. These are some really good quality lipsticks for the price, but they do wear off after several hours, and they do smear. Although if I want a lip color for a job interview or to wear to school, these are the lipsticks that I'll go for.

(I was unable to find the other shades online, I'm not sure if they were discontinued or not...)
(All are around $5.00 each depending on which drug store you prefer)

Out of this bunch of lipsticks, the ones that I like the best and wear the most often are the first three. Centerfold from Buxom, Passion from Revlon, and Pin Up from Ciate. They're really easy to apply, the color payoff is amazing, and I don't find myself having to top them up very often. I also think that I'm a little bit partial to them because they're liquid to matte lipsticks. With the Katy Kat Matte lipstick, this particular on is in the shade Cat Call, it's a really beautiful color but it's kind of hard to wear because it is such a bright orange tones pink. It also has the tendency to smear. The two Revlon Colorburst lipsticks that I have are really great when it comes to being able to apply them quickly, but they do smear and transfer really easily.

Centerfold (Buxom) ($21.00 for the full size)
Passion (Revlon Ultra HD Matte) (around $8.00 each)
Pin Up (Ciate Liquid Velvet) ($19.00 for the full size)
Elusive (Revlon Colorburst) ($6.00-$9.00 depending on the store)
Standout (Revlon Colorburst) ($6.00-$9.00 depending on the store)

These lipsticks are all really good, they just aren't ones that I find myself reaching for very often. NYX as a great selection of colors when it comes to their liquid suede lipsticks, and they're all a really good price, I just find them to be a little hard to apply. To me personally, they also feel kind of like a layer of plastic on my lips when I wear them. The two Tarte lipstick samples that I have are amazing quality, but because they're typically really expensive I choose not to wear them very often because they're too magical to wear every day! The Pacifica lipstick that I have was one that I used to reach for all the time because the color looks really good on me and it lasts a really long time. The only downside is the shape of the lipstick making it hard to apply, and the smell/taste is really not good. When it comes to the Pixi lipstick it is very similar to the Pacifica lipstick except the smell/taste is better. 

I have to confess that I haven't actually worn the Mellow lipstick for more than a little while on my own because it's such an orange shade. Orange can look great on some people, but I do now think I am one of those people... Haha

Rose Naturelle (Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick) ($12.00 for the full size)

If you have any of these lipsticks, or have any lipsticks that you love and think I should try I would love to  know! I'll see you on Tuesday!
