Lip Product Stash

The other day I went to put away a lip gloss. As I opened the bag I store them in, I realized that I have a lot of lip gloss, lip colours, etc. Some of them, barely used.

That is missing another Blistex that is actually almost done and in my purse, another Sephora Fresh Gloss and a Buxom Diamond gloss in April, which I just found today in the bag that I keep my Nikon DSLR in (oops!)

So here's a better close up of the items along with what they are.

From top to bottom:
Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in 07 Gorgeous Peach
Sephora Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in 02 Fancy Red
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) in Hush
OCC in Reverb
Fresh Sugar in Rosé (not shown is the original one as well which I keep at my desk at work)
Mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Frilly Froufrou
Tarte for True Blood LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint
GOSH Lip Gloss in 0073
Philosophy Lip Shine in Berry Christmas
Philosophy Lip Shine in Pomegranate Bubbly
Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Lip Line Perfector (Colorless Anti-Feathering Lip Pencil)
GOSH Velvet Touch Lipliner in Simpy Red
Bliss Fabulips Instant Lip Plumper

Sephora Fresh Gloss
Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked
Sephora Glossy Gloss
MUFE Lab Shine Metal Collection  M16
MUFE Lab Shine Diamond Collection D16
MUFE Lab Shine Diamond Collection D14
MUFE Lab Shine Star Collection S2 (this is the mini one)
Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF15 in Fireberry
Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Glitzy
BareMinerals Pretty Amazing in Courage
BareMinerals Pretty Amazing in Strenght
BareMinerals Pretty Amazing in Panache (mini)
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Sugar
Lise Watier Rouge Gourmand Lipstick in Soufflé
The Body Shop Hi-Shine lip Treatment

Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw
Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Berlin
Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Adora
Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Forever & Never

These guys only made it to the garbage. Blistex Lip Conditioner was empty. Gosh I actually have 2 of, the Urban Decay is supposed to smell like crème brulé, but it's just gross, and the Philosophy Kiss Me lip scrub didn't do much for me and was almost done.

So, in my attempt to de-clutter things, I'll be spending a few months re-evaluating them.

Over the course of a month, I will be selecting five lip products and using only them to decide if I should keep them, toss them, or if it'd be something worth purchasing again in the future (this doesn't include chap stick). Should a special occasion come up, then I may have to use an item that isn't originally part of the line-up.

For the last 2 weeks of August, these are the ones I'm using:

Figured I'd keep it simple since I only have 2 weeks. I've already decided on a tosser and a possible re-buy, but those are for another post!

At the end of each month, I'll post my thoughts on each lip product and which product I'll be trying for the next month.

Just a quick Update

Hey guys,

Just wanted to update everyone. I know I haven't been around here for a while, but I'm hoping to be able to change that.

I already got a few things in the works (BB Cream comparisons for example)

If you've got a request, please PLEASE let me know!  I'd love to touch topics that you have questions about or do/re-create a look that you'd suggest. I'm open to suggestions!

New Covergirl

Alright, so it goes without saying that my 365 days of makeup = Fail!

For the most part, I've been staying pretty neutral lately. Well, neutral with a bit of a cut crease & winged liner. I'll be sure to take a picture tomorrow.

Something has caught my attention recently, and that's the new CoverGirl - P!nk   !! I absolutely love her. She's a great singer, performer (think of her performance of at the Grammy's on the silks), she has great style, very unique and a true individual. I think she'll be a great addition to CoverGirl.

Looking forward to seeing her ads!

What do you think of P!nk as the latest CoverGirl?
