Lipglosses are normally one of the cheapest things in a range, easy to pick up, persuade yourself you 'need' just one more lipgloss... I though I would take a few snaps and show you what I have. I do try to purge my collection every now and again for hygienic reasons (no-one wants to ingest a 5 year old product now, do they!? *shudders*). And no, I never share.
|Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush collection colours: Candy Baby, Slice of Heaven, Juiced Berry, Taffy Go Lucky, Red Delicious, Yummy Berry, Mocktail Hour, Strawberry Fizz. If you want more info on these then I found them on the US VS site (though the packaging is a bit different form my duty free haul). $9 each or 4/$20. Glosses 2, 4, 7 and 8 have shimmer in.|
I also have long hair. Long hair + sticky lipgloss = hair stuck to lips. No. Just. No.
|Ignore the rouge chubby stick! It sneaked in!|
Estee Lauder Pure Pop lipgloss in Pink Cupcake. It's pink and has iridescent glitter in it. I think it has been discontinued, but good old ebay lucked out
Jemma Kidd High Shine lipgloss in Shell. Gorgeous neutral shade with a bit of a thin shimmer (swatch post here)
Barry M Toffee lipgloss (number 10). Standard blogger item. Tastes great. Blue undertone, makes teeth look whiter (Boots link buy 1 get one half price)
Pixi Glow Magic Tink Tint. Pink but reacts to your lip ph to create shade. Previous post where Bagpuss investigates this product link! Similar to the Dior lip glow (also pictured) but slightly different.
Clinique chubby stick (not quite a gloss) and Aveda Nourish-mint lipglaze in cassia (the perfect autumn shade for me.
|Some of my natural balms.|
Apivita Blackcurrant lipbalm. Post to follow on these I think! Vegan, natural, great.
By Terry Baume de Rose. I know I have mentioned this on the blog before. SpaceNK Cult product, worth a look if your wallet is flush!! (link)
Body Shop Cranberry Lip balm. Normally retails at Christmas, smells/tastes great and has a bit of festive gold shimmer. One of only a few jar lip balms I'll buy (and the jars always remind me of being at school where everyone had a jar of dewberry lip balm and dewberry body spray)! STOP PRESS: When looking this up to see if this year's incarnation is available, I saw that it is in a dome packaging!! No need to apply with fingers! This makes me happy- no gooey, messy finger or unsanitary poking of germs onto lips with icky fingers while on the go! It's Christmas in a lip balm for me! (Link)
Carmex (just poking into the picture- yellow tin). This is great when my lips are chapped. Cheaper than By Terry, tingles and gives my lips a hug. Also comes in tubes (hurrah) and mint, strawberry, cherry and original flavours.
So there are *some* of my lip balms and glosses. I think I will have to do a follow up with all the ones I didn't round up. For a girl who doesn't wear them on a daily basis, I have quite a few.
Do you wear lip balms and glosses? Is my collection normal?! Any favourites? Are collection posts interesting and do you want more? Any recommendations?
If you want more info, just ask. Hope you are having a great weekend!
