My Lipstick Collection & Storage

Lipstick-collection-pic-review

A bit of a higgledy piggledy post on my lipstick collection…. Every month or so I go through my makeup and skincare and set aside items that I don’t use much to pass on to others.  This was one of those occasions - I just took a notion to photograph all of my lipsticks while they were laid out in colour groups and decided to turn it into a blog post. I wish the pics were clearer and prettier, but hopefully you won’t mind the au naturel style this time!

My colours are split into pinks, plums, nudes, reds, peaches and and a handful of lip liners, which I’ll do a separate post on soon. Here are some close ups with the lipstick bullets opened; shade names are listed in order below each pic.  Any links lead to posts I’ve done featuring a particular shade so that you can see it swatched or applied and I’ve marked my favourites in bold.

Lipstick Storage

lipstick-collection-storage

Believe it or not, they all fit into this little drawer, about the size of my hand.

Lipstick-storage-Ikea

The drawer is part of this set of four from Ikea, which currently houses the majority of my day to day make-up. Top right is blusher, bottom left - eye products, bottom right - face products. This was just £9 from the Moppe range at Ikea (I intend to paint it to make it more pretty) - I should really have got the bigger size with one large drawer (£17). This has been sufficient for a while but I do miss things that are buried at the bottom, which I guess is the beauty of the shallow Muji acrylic drawers, which will probably be my next venture.

If there are any colours I haven’t posted on that you’d like to see swatched, just leave me a comment below. Bizarrely I haven’t swatched most of my favourites/ most used (highlighted in bold) so I’ll definitely do a post on those soon!

So does my collection get your seal of approval - any you’re curious to try?

Disclaimer: there may be a few more random lippies stashed in my car, handbags, coat pockets etc. Don’t judge me! ;)
