The Waiting Game

Confession: I am a lip product hoarder. But it gets worse, I have so many that have never been used! How does this happen? I blame sales, my attraction to pretty colours and of course, my love of lipstick. Here's a peek at just a few of the ones that are sitting around, waiting for their turn...

 L-R
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 'Back to the Fuschia'
Essence Long Last Lipstick in 'Wear Berries!'
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 'Sloane's Plum'
Revlon Lip Butter in 'Sorbet'

L-R
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in 'Whimsical'
Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream in 'Ma-Li-Boo'
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Sultry'
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 'Adorned'
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Ole flamingo'

Sadly, that's not the end of it. Theres a few more lipsticks floating around waiting for love, but I think you get the idea! I suppose the main reasons for not having used these is the fact that I haven't had any 'bright lipstick' occasions to go to lately. I'm more inclined to have a few casual drinks at a bar than hit up the clubs, so a less dramatic lip usually is enough. Also, some of the formulations (such as the moisture ones) may not have the lasting power I desire to survive a night of drinks. And if I'm with the boyfriend, I avoid sticky or transferable glosses for obvious reasons. 

First world problems.

Do you find yourself in this situation too?

  1. I love the look of the rimmel plum and revlon's whimsical!! I really want some more berry/purple toned lip colors!

  2. I actually used whimsical the other night and it was really pretty! Quite glittery though.

  3. I do, though I tend to use my brighter lipsticks by dabbing them on so the colour is a little more muted!

  4. I'm the same! Because I'm still in high school, I only ever wear lipstick when I go out on weekends and during the holidays which isn't even that often! As a result, majority of my collection goes unworn, and some I've only worn once!

    1. I'm the same - I don't really wear lippy to uni/work so basically only for social events! Thats why I have so many unused ones.
