Make-Up Collection & Graveyard: Lip Products

Monday, March 14, 2016

Hello ladies, 
I'm bringing you the second to last make-up collection & graveyard edition that is going to be all about lip products.
If you want to read my disclaimer about this series, you can read it here.

These photos were taken back in September, so there are a few new additions to my collection, but the majority is still here. I'll also do my best to name all the products that I either gave or threw away, because I made a mistake of not writing them down.

So let's start with lip liners & lip pencils. I've been a big fan of them even before the whole ''overdraw your lips'' hype happened and I use one almost every time I'm wearing a lipstick & I also like to wear them on their own. Usually I prefer creamier formulas, although I don't mind those that are a bit drying either, since my lips usually aren't extremely dry. 
The majority of the ones that I own are from Essence and I think these are my favourite ones as well. They're cheap, creamy, long-wearing and have a nice variety of different shades. Especially their Longlasting lipliners are top notch, I'm hoping they'll bring out some more shade. The shades that I currently own from the Longlasting lipliners are 03 Yummy Berry, 06 A girl's dream & 05 Lovely Frappucino. I also own the shades 06 Satin mauve, 12 Wish me a rose, 11 In the nude, 07 Cute Pink & 15 Honey Berry of their Lipliners.
I find the Catrice Longlasting Lip Pencils a bit more drying & less creamy than the Essence ones, but I'm still a big fan of them & want to get more shades. For now I have 100 Upper Brown Side, 070 I got you babe! & 130 Prince Cherry.
I think that the E.L.F. Long Wear Lip Liners were the first one that I purchased & the shade Natural blush is the only lip liner that I've purchased more than twice in a row (I currently own 2 of them). I also have the shade Bitter which is a must have for all vampy, red lipsticks. From the ones mentioned so far, these are the creamiest.
Next are two NYX Lipliner pencils in 843 Citrine & 858 Nude Pink*. Citrine is the only shade from the bunch that's not completely matte and has a bit of slightly metallic sheen to it. Here's a review.
Now the creamiest of them all, is definitely the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner in 04 Pink Princess. It's so creamy that the tip just breaks off if you're not careful/gentle enough. And lastly, the Maybelline Color sensational lip liner in 132 Sweet pink, which is probably my favourite shade of them all.

The ones that didn't make the cut were the Basic Beauty one that I bought one time in Limoni in Croatia. I don't remember the shade, but I know that it was extremely hard & dry. And the KIKO Smart lip pencil that was actually nice, but the shade 205 was just completely off (it looks like it might be called 715 Periwinkle Violet now).

And now the lipsticks in their ''true'' form that I'm keeping. I won't go into details about each lipstick otherwise we could be here for a few years & I could turn this post into a novel, so I'll tell you some ongoing trends with my lipsticks: I mainly like nicely pigmented, matte, creamy, semi long-wearing ones (I hardly ever reapply lipsticks during the day) & I prefer neutral pink/muted rose/nude-brown shades. I have some more vibrant & sheerer shades as well, but I tend to stay away from everything that's orange, too peachy or purple, shimmery or glittery. 
Let's start with the Maybelline ones that are in my opinion, one of the best ones in the drugstore. I have the shades: 132 Sweet Pink, 250 Mystic Mauve, 342 Mauve Mania, 175 Pink Punch, 910 Shocking Coral & 902 Fuchsia Flash. Mentioned here and here.
The next bunch is from Revlon. I have their Colorburst lipstick in 010 Plum, 050 Berry Smoothie & 075 Lollipop Lip butters and Ultra HD lipstick in 830 HD Rose.
Caresse lipsticks in 102 Mauve Cherie & 401 Rebel Red and Color Riche Laetitia's pure red are from L'Oreal and I'm one of those that absolutely love the scent of L'Oreal lipsticks. I also have three Catrice lipsticks in 060 Floral Coral (Ultimate stay), 240 Hey nude... (Ultimate colour) & C02 Of Royal Blood (LE Rocking Royals).
Since taking these photos I added another M.A.C. lipstick to my collection, so I now own: Brave (satin), Russian red (matte), Syrup (lustre), Faux (satin) & Patisserie (lustre). A post that includes some of them & some other lipsticks mentioned in this post.
I seem to have the most lipsticks from Essence and although these aren't my favourite ones, they are still very good & have a great shade selection. The ones that grabbed my attention so far are: 01 Coral calling, 09 Wear berries!, 04 On the catwalk!, 13 Love me!, 07 Natural beauty, 02 Waka Waka & 01 Na-rock (both from TE  Tribal Summer), and 02 Live, laugh, love and repeat (TE Happy girls are pretty).
The last two that are from the same brand are from KIKO - Smart lipstick in 911 Watermelon (reviewand Velvet mat-satin lipstick in 602 Natural Rose.
I also own Avon's Honey Flower (1). Ombia Cosmetics 01 Dusty rose (2), p2 012 Kärntnerstrasse*(3, review), Wet n wild 908C Sugar Plum Fairy (4), Yves Rocher 33 Rouge Gourmand* (5), Etude House (doesn't have a shade name, 6), NARS Anita (7, here), Chanel 79 Saga (8), Oriflame Cerise Pink (9) and Max Factor 665 Pomegranate (10).

 And now let's hop to other lip products, liquid lipsticks, lip crayons etc. that I decided to keep when I was re-organising my make-up collection back in September.
I used to love E.L.F. Matte Lip Colors, but now I really neglect them. Need to show the shades Natural & Tea rose some love again. Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquers also used to be all the rage, but I still own only 303 Apocaliptic & 101 Celestial.
L'Oreal Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick (here) are great, even beyond their gorgeous packaging. I currently own 102 Rose finale & 600 Nude vibrato. 
Avon Perfect kiss lip gloss in Succulent Fuchsia is an awesome product and Freedom Pro melts lipgloss in Smooth* is still waiting to be reviewed. 
I only have one L'Occitane lip product - their Pivoine Sublime tinted lip balm in Rose plum, but I sure do have quite a lot of Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's: 07 Nude-ist, 10 Don't pink of it!, 09 Happy nude year, 08 Grand Cru & 02 Frambourjoise. I'll be picking up some more as well.
Another amazing lip products that sadly got discontinued were the Essence Stay matte lip creams. I have the shades 01 Velvet Rose, 03 Soft Nude, 02 Smooth Berry & 01 Mission Flower (TE Guerilla gardening).
The Manhattan Soft mat lipcreams are also really nice, but the shade selection isn't the best. I only have 56K & 54L. I also really like Catrice Wet shine stain long-lasting lip lacquer in C01 Innocent (LE Thrilling me softly and their Smoothing Lip Polishes in 020 Jen & Berry's & 080 What's Your Atti-Nude? that I added since then. These are all very long-lasting, but their Lip smoothers that are a total opposite, are also one of the best drugstore lip products in my opinion. I have the shades 010 Sweet caramel, 030 Cake pop & 020 Apricot dreams.
The other lip products on the photo are: GOSH Forever lip shine in 002 Sweet moments, Essence Mini sheer lipstick in 01 Hit the road, red! (TE Road trip), Maybelline Color Elixir lip lacquer in 725 Caramel Infused, L'Oreal Caresse glossy stain in 102 Romy (mentioned here with a few other ones as well), Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker gloss stick in Nudist, Catrice Pure Shine colour lip balm in 030 Don't think just pink and Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in 005 Crush beguin.

Lastly, the lip products that I decided to pass on, mostly because of my poor colour selection/judgement, but some also because they were very similar to a few that I decided to keep.
The first one is the Oriflame More by Demi lipstick in Princess Pink that was just too light for me & it was time to give it up. The other ones are Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, Catrice Ultimate stay in 020 All that she wears that my mum is enjoying now, Essence Come Naturally, MUA shade 3, KIKO Smart lipstick in 910 Baby pink, M.A.C. Snob (dear Lord, did this one make my teeth look YELLOW), Manhattan lipstick that I don't know the shade off, but it had this weird metallic blue shimmery finish, Makeup Revolutin Reckless*, Alverde lipstick that I also don't know the name off & L'Oreal Radiant Plum that I think was the first hand-me-down from my mum.
The next five were all failed colour choices, starting with the Bourjois Color Boost glossy finish lipstick in Peach on the beach, that worked when I was tanned but it literally melted, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in Cherish Devotion, E.L.F. Matte Lip Color in Coral, Sephora Ultra Vinyl lip pencil in Miami Pink (I seriously made some awful lipstick choices when I was in Paris) and Max Factor Color Elixir giant pen stick in 10 Couture blush that wasn't so awful shade wise, but it kept breaking. Quite a few of them are mentioned here.

I have to say that I'm quite happy with my current stash of lip products, although I do need to have another mini clear out again soon.
Let me know if there's any particular lipstick shade that you think it's missing in my collection. Also let me know if you have any wishes to see more detailed post on some of these lip products (for example: lip swatches of lip liners, M.A.C. collection, Bourjois Velvet's, etc.)

*The products marked with * were given to me. I didn't buy them with my money. But that didn't and won't ever affect my opinion about the products in any way. The review is based on my personal experience with the product.*

  1. Omg, jaz se niti ne upam ozreti proti svoji kolekciji lip izdelkov, ker je huge. :S
    Je pa tudi tvoja zavidljiva. Si me pa s to objavo spomnila, da moram pregledati svojo kolekcijo in dati cel kup stvari stran, I need space. :)

    1. Torej to pomeni, da moja ni tako velika in lahko kupim še par novih, haha ;)
      Jaz morem pri lakih zdaj narediti še eno čistko, samo ko je tako težko :/

  2. Šele zdaj sem videla to serijo objav in mi je zelo všeč ideja, sem šla nazaj vse prečekirat :) In mislim, da sem edina, ki še nima Essence liplinerjev.:P

    1. Me veseli, da ti je všeč. Essence liplinerje pa nujno kupiti, vsaj enega ;)

  3. Zdaj pa sem jaz ponosna lastnica Snob. A+ od mene (čeprav zob raje ne bom niti gledala, hihi).

    1. Tebi tako ali tako ful pašejo taki odtenki ;)
