Well, here it is another makeup graveyard! This one features all of my lip products, but this is only what I have in storage. It does not include items that I am currently using. I have a stock pile of lip products that I am not using, but will use when I use what I am currently using up or if I am in the mood to switch it up a little. This is not my whole collection. It doesn’t include my MAC lipstick, EM lip balm, and a few others. I like to keep something in each of my purses, my bathroom, and my desk at work.
First up, we have the glosses:
The Snow Berry is the pretty white sparkly “snow” one. I love the everyday pink glosses and the strawberry with gold glitter no matter how impractical. Lip gloss is really hard to swatch and congrats to anyone who can make them look pretty. The only one I am not keeping is the 17 Magazine freebie. It looks like children’s makeup.
My lipsticks are next:
The red Hot Damn and the Nude by Maybelline are the two that I am trashing, since the red looks like something is growing in the tube (yuck!) and the nude is too nude for my skin color. It really looks like I have no lips. As you can see, I gravitate more towards pinks and nudes. I love those tones on my skin, but I have nothing against a flattering red or berry. I just haven’t found the right lipstick yet. Plus, I like easy shades that I don’t have to worry about. I don’t want to worry about feathering and the like. These shades are so easy you (almost) don’t need a mirror.
My Pigmented Lip Glosses/Stains are next:
The first swatch is of the deep berry Cailyn gloss and the next one over is the Red Potion and Mad Splatter. The Pop beauty really smells nasty, so I am getting rid of that one. I am keeping the rest of these. I cannot wait to wear the berry once it is officially fall!
Last but not least, my balms:
As you can see, everything is clear, nude, or a berry. I actually rediscovered some items that I forgot I had like that shocking berry color! It’s just beautiful. I know know what colors I’ll be wearing this fall. I am all about the berries and deep pinks. The colorless balms are good for walks outside and for stashing in your bedside drawer in the colder months. I’ll be rocking my stash for sure. The grapefruit went sour so I got rid of that as well as the mint roll on.
I love “shopping” my stash and discovering something “new” to wear. I will be revisiting this every year or inventory purposes and will be sharing it. I wonder how many of these items will still be here next year? Will some be repurchased? I guess you’ll find out next September. LOL.
