Lip products are my weakness from glosses to balms and everything in-between. I tend to gravitate towards nudes, but I do lip an unexpected pop of color and berry tones. I haven’t really counted yet to see what I have. I mean, I took the pictures, but I didn’t actively count them as I was doing so. Let’s start off with the first subcategory.
Overnight Lip Balm: 5
I have 5 overnight lip balms. The Jouer one is almost finished. I’ve been working on it for months now. I like to apply a balm before bed to nourish my lips overnight. I would like to reduce this done to 1 product in this category. I’ve found my dream overnight balm from Aerin. It’s expensive, but so very worth it. A little also goes a long way with it too. I’m also over these EOS balms. They really aren’t that moisturizing.
Lip Balms: 8
Ideally, I want to get rid of EVERYTHING in this category and just not have day balms anymore. I hardly ever reach for chapsticks or lip balms or anything in pot form. I’d much rather put on a gloss or a liquid lipstick. I want some color or shine. Lip balms don’t give enough of either for me. I want to use them all up. I will not purchase a lip balm, but if I get it in a subscription or if a friend buys me one, I will use it. I like it when my friend finds/buys me unique lip balms that I’ve never tried before. I just don’t use these enough to buy them and they aren’t what I’m looking for. I want to replace this category with lip oils. However, if I find a unique chapstick flavor like birthday cake, I will buy it. Those unique flavors are good!
B&BW Lip Glosses: 7
I didn’t realize one was Avon. LOL. I’m into more mature lip glosses now, so I’d like to get rid of this category, too. I really love these glosses, but I’m getting to old for such obvious glitter glosses. I’d rather use my MAC lip glass, which is also pigmented. I want my glosses to have pigment. These really only have high shine, but I still love them. When I use all of these up, I might buy one to keep in my collection. We will see. I’ve been working on the I’ve Been Nice one for a while now. These last forever! Half of the tubes are half to mostly used. It will still take me a while to finish these though.
Lip Glosses: 6
Everything but the MAC is either mostly used or half used up. I don’t think it’ll take me long to have only the MAC in my regular lip glosses category. I would like to add more lip glosses or lip toppers in this category that are high quality. I’m think some really nice iridescent ones from Huda beauty and take a peek at other brands as well. I really want a pretty blue gloss. The MAC one I had my eye on, sold out fast. I need a blue lip color! I think it would look really pretty on me, but a light sky kinda blue. Nothing dark.
I really love most of these lipsticks, but I do want to go through the two lip paints and the brown stick color. I really love nudes, but that bright purple/pink makes me happy wearing it. I can totally pull it off and I love it. I’m going to work on the darker lip paint during the fall and the brown and see if I can use those two up this year.
Well, that is it for the lip collection with a total of 34 products if my counting was correct. I would like to get it done to 25 by January when I do this count again. Hopefully, I can use up 9 lip products by then. I know for sure that 3 will be done soon enough, so I’m really only looking at using up 6 by then. I’m going to concentrate on the ones that are half used up or more to reach my goal.
With Love ❤
