My Lipstick Collection

I was contemplating if I should post this or not, but organizing my makeup yesterday made me realize how happy I am when I saw my lipstick (or in this case, lip products) collection. Note: This is a picture heavy post, be prepared. :)
When I started watching Youtube videos and really get into makeup, I was always wondering why a girl needs too many lip colors, and now I know why. You can always play with your lips. If you wanted it natural, you can always go for nude or a light pink, or probably a lip balm/tint. If you wanted to be fun, go for a hot pink or a purple color. And if you wanted to be bold, go for a bright or deep red one.

So I started collecting and investing on lipsticks. I only got 2 products last December, and now I have a few. I would like to share them with you.

I will not be going in-depth through each and one of them. I'll be sorting it by type and by price, and I'll just include the name, the shade, and swatches on the back of my hand. If you would like me to do a review of any of these products, please let me know by posting a comment below or through Facebook.

And that is all the lip products that I currently have. I will definitely expand this, adding red lipsticks (I am saving up for MAC's Ruby Woo and Russian Red) and also lip pencils. I am also inlove with the Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick, so I will definitely get more shades!

Stay beautiful, inside and out. I will "see" you in my next post. Goodluck!

    I got MAC Unlimited too- such a pretty shade. Love Nichido Rosette as well. BTW, while you're saving up for Ruby Woo, you can use Nichido Blaze lip pencil for your red lip fix :) Also lemming to add some more lip pencils to my stash

      Oh I have been eyeing that lip pencil, haven't got the chance to really look into lip pencils, and to purchase MAC lipsticks. :( I am not sure if I need to update this post, as I have acquired quite a few lippies since Febraury. :D
