Swatches of MOST My Lipstick Collection

The other night, I decided to take inventory of my lipstick collection and make some swatches for references. I have swatches of nudes, pinks, red, and purples here. I didn’t swatch my “weird” colors (blacks, greens, blues, browns, gold, etc.), though. All-in-all I have approximately 124 lipsticks… yeah, a lot. Next time I think to myself “oh, I need that lipstick,” I should definitely take a second and remind myself that, no, I do not need more lipstick.  In these photos, liquid lipsticks are on the left and bullet lipsticks are on the right.

NUDES

PINKS

REDS

PURPLES

 

Clearly, I have a soft spot for nudes and purples. No surprise there, really. Purple is my favorite color and I think I pull it off well. This totally goes against what I said earlier, but do you think I have any holes in my collection? I have since added two reds from Beauty Bakerie since these photos. My Aromi reds were the first ones I bought and I think they’re getting a little old and might have to be tossed soon. I plan on trying out the new TooFaced liquid latex formula, too, but need to decide on which color exactly. And then I’m promptly going on a lipstick no-buy.

Skull Makeup

I was (clearly) in the Halloween spirit and decided to do some skull makeup, cause why not?!

For the Look: The wig was like $6 from AliExpress. I used BH Cosmetics Modern Matte palette for my eyeshadow and to do the face make up. Then used their Foiled palette to add some grey to my lid and turquoise to inner corner. My eyelashes are the Lashlorette from Esqido. The black lipstick is from Hot Topic and I used some Makeup Monsters liquid lip in Back Lash in the middle of my lips. And finally, some Urban Decay highlighter in Sin.
