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...

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'

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.

  5. I know this feeling! I wish I could wear bright, pretty lipstick 24/7 without any hassles! Awesome blog :) I'm your newest follower :)
