All About My Lipsticks: Lipstick collection, favorite lipsticks and lipstick tag!

I’m not a lipstick person, in fact, I can definitely go out without wearing one. However, due to my journey of finding “THE ONE” for me, I ended up having more than what I needed in my life! Hahaha!

So far, I have 44 lipsticks (lipglosses, lipbalm, lip palette not included in the counting, except for Careline Lipglosses since I consider them liquid lipstick rather than Lipglosses).

Avon Lip Duo in Pink Bouquet Avon Lipstick in Island Glow Avon Lipstick in Pinktabulous Avon Lipstick in Tangerine Careline lipgloss in 101 Careline lipgloss in 104 Careline lipgloss in 109 Careline lipgloss in 111 Clinique Glow Bronze Covergirl Lip Perfection in Heavenly Estee Lauder in Gold Bronze Etude House in Chic Beige Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Pink Flame Loreal Lipstick in Decadent Mac Cosmo Mac Pink Nouveau Mac Ravishing Mac Shy Girl Mac Viva Glam Nicki Maybelline Colorsensational (ASIA) in Angel Maybelline Colorsensational (ASIA) in Coral Pink Maybelline Colorsensational (USA) in Autumn Rush Maybelline Colorsensational (USA) in Park Avenue Peach Maybelline Colorsensational (USA) in Pink Please Maybelline Moisture Extreme in Born with It Maybelline Watershine Lipstick in BM31 NYC in 407B NYC in 481A Nyx Lips in Indian Pink Nyx Lips in Thalia NYX Matte Soft Matte Lip cream in Addis Ababa Nyx Rls in Eros Nyx Rls in Heredes Nyx Rls in Tea Rose Nyx Rls in Thalia Revlon Matte Lipstick in Smoked Peach Rimmel Renew Moisturizing in Pink Chic San San lipstick in 03 Sophie Martin Lipstick Sleek in Barely There Venus and Mars Lip Butter in Wine Pearl Wet n Wild 900B (Pink Sugar)

If you found a lipstick that you’re interested in the list and you want me to review it, just comment below. But please, I need more time to do so (since I'm so busy with my review  for board exam).

I know other bloggers have more lipsticks than I have, however, I feel like this is already too much for me. Believe me; I’m trying my best not to purchase another lipstick/s until I’m done with my favorite lipsticks.

From 44 lipsticks, I will show you my top 10 favorites
Nyx Rls in Tea Rose | Rimmel Moisture Renew in Pink Chic | Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa |  Maybelline Colorsensational in Park Peach Avenue  |  Covergirl Lip Perfection in Heavenly  | Ever Bilena Matte Lpstck in Pink Flame | Mac Lpstck in Ravishing | Mac Pink Nouveau | Mac Lipstick in Cosmo | Etude House Lipstick in Chic Beige

NOTE: 
LIP SWATCHES PROVIDED ARE LITTLE LIGHTER THAN IN REAL LIFE DUE TO THE LIGHTING CONDITION. I TOOK THE LIP SWATCHES AROUND 7-8:00am

TAG QUESTIONS: LIPSTICK TAG

(1) When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Yes, I use my mom’s and sisters’ lipsticks when I was a child.
Trivia: I never had my “own” lipstick until I was in college. I started collecting my “own” lipsticks just few months before I started blogging (fyi, I started blogging on October 2010).

(2) How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
I was 18 years old when I purchased my very own lipstick. Before, I just borrow lipsticks from my sisters.  However, I use (my very own) lipglosses when I was in highschool to early college years.

(3)    Pink or red lipstick?
I don’t wear Red lipsticks so it’s definitely Pink

(4) The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
MAC lipsticks --- would probably the most expensive lipsticks I purchased so far using my own money.

(5) And the cheapest?
Careline Lipglosses --- I consider them as lipsticks, not lipglosses. These were just Php 60/tube, amazing for the price.

(6) What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
None? I can’t think of any. Hahaha! I just use lipstick on my lips and cheeks(sometimes).Haven’t tried anything weird with lipsticks.

(7) If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

If you’re looking for wide range colors:
Splurge: I would definitely recommend Mac Lipsticks!
Save: Nyx Roundlipsticks .I like how creamy their lipsticks are and Nyx has amazing range of shades for round lipsticks. However, these are not long lasting on lips plus very cheap packaging!

Formulation-wise:
I highly recommend Mac Lipstick, Covergirl Lip Perfection and Maybelline Colorsensational (USA version).

Long-wearing:
Nyx Soft MATTE lip cream stays on amazingly on my lips! (However, very limited colors)

(8) Favorite Pink Lipstick
For bright lipstick: Mac Pink Nouveau
For wearable pink: Nyx Lipstick in Tea Rose

(9) Favorite Nude:
Mac Lipstick in Cherish, Careline Lipgloss in 101 and Etude House Lipstick in Chic Beige

(10) Favorite Red:
Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in Park Peach Avenue;p

(11) Favorite Unsual Shade:
Mac Pink Nouveau and Rimmel Lipstick in Pink Chic

  17. Hi Pau,
    I dunno if this Maybelline colorsensational (in a color tube) is still available. Kasi yung isang version na nakikita ko sa department store (park peach ave)
    In response to your request on the authenticity, sorry dear, I don't know na my fake rin plang gnito?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hehe, okay lang po :) May nakita po ako from other blogs na fake na mga ganyan, so beware po tayo.

    xo,
    Pauline

  21. Hi everyone! I'm just a newbie when it comes to putting make up and using lipstick, Where did you buy your lipsticks? I bought my Sophie lipstick at goods.ph for an affordable price. Do you have any advice on using lipstick the proper way? Thank you very much!
