Fun, Girlie, Lipstick Blog!! :p

It seems that lately my lipstick wish list is adding up, it's the one makeup item that I seem to be reaching for the most, as well as seeing new ones and going 'oooh yes please' :p I've been trying to break out of my comfort zone a little bit and try new colours for Fall/Winter and really got into the trends this year. I'm usually one for pink everything, I've experimented with pale pinks to bright pinks to nude pinks, so when I went to pick up a deep red from my collection the other day, I thought to myself 'when did I suddenly accumulate so many lip products!' :p I thought I would be a bit girlie today and share my small collection with you. Maybe you will see some that you like and would want to try and maybe you have some that you think I might like also! :)

I'm sorry that the pictures aren't the best, I'm really trying to work on that at the moment, but I think you can see the colours pretty well, especially once I swatch them! :)

1) Color your smile lip-gloss: Rose Hill
I was so excited to get this one, as of course I adore Jaclyn Hill, and I have to say I do really love it! The color is so pretty that I usually reach for it on days when I'm not wearing much makeup, just to make me feel girlie, a little brighter and put together. The only thing I don't really like about this is the tackiness. Now I have heard people say that is a good thing because then it lasts longer but I don't know if I care much for that. Not to be negative, as honestly it hasn't stopped me using it, but I think I definitely prefer reapplying to feeling sticky. :) But yay Jaclyn Hill. Her other 3 products from Gerard cosmetics are definitely on the wish list! :)
 
2 )NYX lip-gloss: Apple strudel
3) NYX lip-gloss: Crème Brulee
I'm putting these two together as simply put, I LOVE these glosses. I heard so many great things about them that I couldn't wait to try them and they did not disappoint. They are spot on for the price and are so soft and creamy and moisturizing that you can't go wrong with them. My lips are quite red so I do have to put a little powder or touch of foundation over them if I want to get the full  pigmentation from these glosses but they are gorgeous. :)
 
4) Maybelline lipstick: Shocking Coral
I think I bought this one last summer when I started wanting to experiment a little more and it was my go to when I braved being a bit bolder. It's extremely pigmented and gives you a lovely orangey coral bright lip, with a bit of pink too. It goes on smooth and creamy and is still one of my favourites! :)
 
5) Maybelline whisper lipstick: Pink Possibilities
This one I got around the time I picked up the Shocking Coral one. This one is much more pink, just a sweet, pretty pink, though it is more sheer. It feels more like a balm to me, so I can sometimes just go crazy and keep applying it. It's soft and smooth and the more you put on the brighter it gets! :p
 
6) NYX lipstick: Hippie Chick
I saw this on Pinterest mixed with another color from NYX and I thought it looked so cute and gorgeous, but I have to say that it is my least favourite out of all my lip products. It doesn't have any consistency on my lips and breaks up in every little crease. I even tried putting it over the top of another colour but it didn't work. The only way I can describe it, its like chalk. :( Anyone else have that problem with these lipsticks?
 
7) Milani lipstick: Enchanted Topaz
Eeeek, this one my friend Kacie surprised me with, as a dupe for Jaclyn Hill's 1995. And it's awesome! I love it! It is beautiful and creamy and soft and pigmented and one of my favourites. I don't think it's as dark as 1995 but I think it's just perfect. For me, its just the right amount of nude but warm with taupe/brown. I can wear it with my Mac whirl pencil and just blend them together a little to get a nice Fall look. :) Thank you Kacie!
 
8) Maybelline Matte lipstick: Divine Wine
Now this one I have to admit was my complete obsession after seeing Casey Holmes use it in a tutorial. I just had to get it! :p It just looked stunning. It was out of stock for a good week after she posted her tutorial but I finally found it in my Walgreens. As I mentioned before, I am more of a pink girl, but I liked how this wasn't a bright red and had a deeper look to it, that's why I thought I would try it. I've realized that I have to be in the right mood to wear darker colours as I am simply more of a bright colored person, however, saying that, I do think I can get away with this shade of red and I want to be brave more and wear it because it is just that gorgeous. I honestly adore it! :p And Maybelline really do have a wonderful formula for their lip products as it goes on like a dream! :)
 
9) Mac lipstick: Myth
I went through a phase of loving the look of a really nude lip, in summer it just seemed to fit so I picked up Mac's Myth. I think I have worn it once on it's own and with a light pink blush I kind of like it for a very sweet look. :) I wore it more with Rose Hill over the top and just recently I tried it with Divine Wine. I put Divine Wine on first and then dabbed a little of Myth over the top with my finger and it simply toned it down a little to suit me! :) I think Myth is a great basic to have that you can mix and match with almost anything! :)
 
10) Limecrime lipstick: Geradium
This one Kelly got me for our birthday and it is so cute! I adore this packaging and the whole LimeCrime range, just gorgeous. The formula for this is awesome, it's so bright and pigmented and smooth and creamy and the colour lasts for ever! I have to be in a bold mood for wearing this one as it is a stunningly beautiful bright, bright pink, with a touch of purple in it I think. Id definitely purchase more from LimeCrime! :)
 
11) Bite Beauty lipstick: Musk and Lychee
I bought this one so I could see if the darker colours suited me. I had heard good things about Bite Beauty and I liked that I could try out two colours for only $12. I'm so happy with this purchase, Musk is the darker of the two and works beautifully with my Mac Whirl pencil, it's that nude/taupe/brown shade that is very popular right now. Lychee is slightly more sheer and pinky and is lovely over the top of Musk to brighten it up. They are both creamy and moisturizing! Definitely a thumbs up! :)
 
 
Another look at the colours up close! :)
