Lipstick Collection

I’ve recently bought a few more lipsticks, as I have been having fun expanding my collection. I’m trying not to go too crazy, but I like having some choices! Nudes are still my go to, but I’m slowly expanding my collection to include a few reds, but that’s about it. Nothing too crazy yet.

Anyway, I love doing these collection posts, and now that I have a decent amount of lipsticks, I thought it would be time to share them all with you.

Currently, I have three lipsticks, the other eight are liquid lipsticks.

From left to right, I have a lipstick from Honest Beauty, MAC and Clinique.

Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Lip Crayon in Sheer Chestnut

I got this from a subscription box last year, and it’s still one of my favourites. I’d never seen a lip crayon before, but I prefer it to a lipstick. I can line it quite well without having to use a liner. The formula of this lipstick is really nice. It moisturizes my lips while putting it on, and dries fast. It’s got quite a sheen, but I really like that. It’s an orange/red colour, and one of my go-to’s.

MAC in Kittenish

Mac Kittenish

One of my newer lipsticks. I’d been wanting to try a MAC lipstick, and decided to get one out of my normal range. This one is quite pink, but not too bright. I don’t like the formula as much as Honest Beauty, but the colour comes off really nice after one coat which is cool. Again, with the lip crayon, I don’t feel like I need to add a liner, as I can apply it precisely.  I’m still making up my mind about how much I like this one.

Clinique Pop Lip + Primer in Nude

This is another subscription box lipstick, and has been with me the longest out of my current collection. It’s a mixture between nude and pink. It’s the one I wore at my wedding. The formula is so moisturizing, dries matte and doesn’t smudge. I would be interested to try this lipstick in other colours.

As for my liquid lipsticks, I have eight now.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London

NYX Soft matte

My new favourite nude lipstick. This time, it has more of a brown/nude colour. I really like how it looks with my skin tone. I normally wear this everyday, as it really suits the ‘natural’ look. As I’ve mentioned before, I love the formula of this lipstick! It’s more creamy than liquid, but once you apply it, it dries matte almost immediately. It’s not too long-lasting, and you do have to reapply during the day. Otherwise, it’s perfect!

Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint

Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint

I got this in my Tarte Treasure Box. This is a much darker colour than I normally use. It’s more of a purple/plum colour. I’ve really grown to love it though. Applying it is tricky though. The formula is quite nice, but I do have to moisturize my lips quite a bit otherwise when the lipstick dries, it settles into my cracked lips. Also it’s a darker colour, if I don’t line it correctly, it’s pretty obvious. But the extra effort of putting it on is worth it.

NYX Lip Lingerie Minis

I got six of these little minis on a whim. They’re all nude-ish colours so I figured it’d be fun. I will say though, that I’m not the greatest fan of the formula. Unlike the soft matte, they don’t dry straight away, and my lips feel sticky for a while afterwards. They also smudge like crazy while they’re still wet. That being said, I do like a lot of these colours, but I still prefer my other NYX lipstick.

Lace Detail and Dusk to Dawn

Lace Detail was a bit more of a purple nude, while Dusk to Dawn was more or a orange/brown nude.  I like the Lace Detail, as it seems like more of a laidback version of my Tarte lipstick. Dusk to Dawn was an interesting colour on me. I feel like it didn’t quite suit me, but that could just be personal opinion.

Bedtime Flirt and Satin Ribbon

Bedtime Flirt reminded me of Lace Detail a little, but toned down. I really liked the colour. I’m not a fan of Satin Ribbon though. It was more of a pale pink colour, which I don’t think works on me.

Push Up and Bustier

Push Up was an interesting colour, I couldn’t quite decide what nude colour it was. It’s not too bad though. Finally, Bustier, was a surprise. It’s definitely got a lot more purple undertones than the others, but it grew on me really fast! It’s more of an experimental look than the other ones, but I’m willing to work with it.

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Those are so pretty! I love nudes. They’re my favorite. 🙂 great choices!

    1. Thanks Cassi! I do love a good nude lippie ?

      1. You’re welcome. 🙂 and yeah, who doesn’t?!

  2. You have beautiful features 🙂 I love how you took these photos and I love all the colours, but my favourite has to be the Clinique pop lip. It really makes your eyes stand out.

    1. Aww thanks Laura! ❤
      The Clinique one has been with me the longest for a reason ? I really do love the colour ?

  3. I don’t wear matte lipstick very well, but it looks nice on you.

    1. Thank you so much! ?
      I make sure to moisturize my lips heaps before wearing a matte lipstick. It’s the only way I can get it to look nice ?

  4. Great collection Angela!! Mine is getting bigger too xx

    1. Thanks Anni! My makeup collection in general was tiny before I started blogging, but now I love trying out heaps of different kinds and formulas ?

  5. I don’t wear lipstick, or makeup gasp, I know. :):) But I do love makeup posts, because my sister loves makeup, and it helps me, help her hehehe. My favourite on you, is the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint. It looked, to me, like it made your features stand out. The contours of your lips, and face. Which is nice because you have great structure. The second favourite would have to be the Lace Detail. For the same reasons, although not as pronounced. Having said that they all look great on you, and I don’t see where you could go wrong with any of the ones you shared with us.

    1. Haha, makeup is like any other preference, some people love it, some people don’t wear it, and lots of in between people too! Thank you so much for your kind words! I was pleasantly surprised with the Tarte one, I thought it seemed too dark of a colour at first glance, but I really like how it looks on 😀

      1. Not kind, just being honest. Yes that one the picture was wow. I thought maybe you were more made up make up wise but I scrolled back and forth to the previous picture, and nope, it was just the lipstick bringing out your features.

  6. Love your photos Angela!
    I love the Nyx Lip Lingerie Formula. They do take a while to dry but once they do I find they stay on all day for me 🙂

    1. Thanks Cleia!
      The first time I tried the NYX Lip lingerie was for this post, and so I wasn’t wearing them for long. I think I’m just used to fast drying formulas, but I do love the colours of the lipsticks I have, so I’m definitely planning on giving them another go 😀

  7. I definitely noticed a pattern in your choices and I can’t wait to see you experimenting with some bold colours 😀

    1. Haha, I am a fan of the nudes! I’m a lot more comfortable with them. I do have a few darker colours, but nothing too bold. It’s definitely something I want to experiment with 😀

  8. Love those cute little NYX Lingerie lipsticks, I would totally love those small sizes, because I never used up a lipstick before. xx

    1. They’re really cute! The mini size of them was part of the appeal! I don’t think I’ll ever finish any of my regular sized lipsticks haha!

  9. I like the Clinique Pop Lip + Primer in the shade grape. It’s an amazing formulation.

    1. It does have an amazing formula! I’m keen to try some of the other colours of the Clinique lipsticks 🙂

  10. Bustier looks fabulous on you (:

    1. Thank you! I really like it too! It’s a bit bolder than the other nudes I have, but it works 😀

  11. I really love the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint on you, worth the effort of putting on. You look gorgeous in it 🙂

    1. Thank you Sarah! I really love that one too! The formula is also so amazing and longlasting. I’m keen to try some of the other colours, but the one I have is pretty perfect 😀

  12. I’m going to tell you now, but once you expand the color choices you wear, it’s very easy to get carried away to get more.. That’s how I have nearly 80 lippies LOL.. I plan to declutter a BUNCH and SOON! LOL

    1. That sounds about right haha! I’d be impressed if I ever make it up to 80! 😀

      1. It’s nice to have a lot to choose from because they’re all different formulas (creamy, matte, liquid, etc). It’s also nice to have a huge range of different shades because one day you want a nude, but maybe a pinky undertone, other days you want a red, but not a bright one, etc. LOL

  13. The Clinique lipstick and Bustier from NYX are my favourites on you! 😀

    1. I’m glad you like those ones too! I’m surprised by how much I like the Bustier one 😀

  14. Ahhh I used to be so obsessed with lipstick! I have a huge collection and an entire drawer just for lip products because I’d buy every colour that I thought was remotely pretty. I definitely regret these decisions now because I barely use them anymore XD I have a few nudes and rose-y tones, and one or two bold ones that I use the most frequently, but the rest (sadly) just sits in my drawer, collecting dust!

    I really like the Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint by the way, I think the colour looks so gorgeous on you! I would say I’d buy that one for myself, but my collection is just too big and it’d be a waste XD Thank you for sharing though ahhh I love makeup <3

    1. Haha, I could see myself going down that route, but I’m doing my best to hold back XD
      Thank you so much Jackie! I really love that Tarte lippie, and I’m so happy with the shade 😀

  15. You have such a pretty collection of lipsticks! I am a nude lover myself too haha! That nyx lip lingerie in shade Lace Detail looks really good on you! Love it ? xx

    1. Nude lipsticks for the win! Haha, I am wanting to experiment with bolder colours, but I always find myself going back to nudes in the end 😀
      Thanks Jasmin! <3

  16. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London is a must! It’s one of my favorites. I love the formula as well. Great collection!

    1. It’s such a great lippie! The formula has been my favourite I’ve ever found 😀
