Lipstick | Makeup Declutter 18/19

Lipsticks Before

So it turns out I have a million and one lipsticks! And to go through every single colour with you… I’d probably explode! So I thought I would split into lipsticks, liquid lipsticks and lip glosses/lip toppers. However, super happy with how I managed to declutter this section of my makeup – going from 48 lipsticks to just 30! So we’re not here for years, I’m going to talk through formulas as opposed to specific colours!


L’Oreal Lipsticks | I actually really rate the main lipsticks from L’Oreal, just mine was a little old and so I decided it was probably time to let to go

Soph x Revolution Lipsticks | As cheap lipsticks go, these ones are pretty good, I just have lipsticks I go for far more!

Elizabeth Arden ‘Beautiful Colour’ Lipstick | I LOVED the packaging of this, but I just never found myself reaching for them, so thought it was probably about time I got rid of it

Oryza Warm Nude Lipstick | I never really got a chance to try this formula, because the colour was just WAY to pale for me…

Primark & Revolution Lipstick | I’ve paired these together, because there’s a reason why they’re so cheap… they’re fine, but they’re really nothing amazing! But then again you’re only spending like £1 on them!

Bourjois Rouge Fabuleux Lipsticks | These really are some of the best lipstick out there. I also love their Rouge Velvet lipsticks… but I don’t know where mine have gone… I decluttered down so I didn’t have the whole collection, but I did keep a lot!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks | These are great handbag lipsticks. Pigmented, very matte and great nude lipsticks, plus they’re really long lasting!

TopShop Lipstick | Probably my most worn lipstick, this lipstick in Devotion is GORGEOUS! It’s a pinky/mauvey nude, has a beautiful satin finish, it super creamy on the lips and just looks stunning! Plus I think the packaging is cute!

Elizabeth Arden Lipsticks | I got these in a holiday collection a while back and I’ve been in love with them ever since! Beautiful colour formula, beautiful colour, beautiful lipsticks!

Inglot Lipsatin Lipstick | I mean I’d probably keep this lipstick for smell alone (it smells amazing) but it is also a beautiful lipstick!

Illamasque Lipsticks | I love how luxurious these feel! The formula is one of the best! There was no way I was getting rid of these

Lancôme L’absolu Rouge Lipstick | Every time I use this, I forget how much like parma violets it smells.. but I also couldn’t care less! The colour is gorgeous and it’s so cute!

L’Oreal Color Riche Shine Lipstick | I’ve gone from having the full collection to just one shade – the red one. Because there’s just something about this formula with this colour – it looks gorgeous!

Rimmel The Only One Matte Lipstick | These lipsticks are so long wearing I really can’t get over it! They’re pigmented, easy to apply, super comfortable – Rimmel just knocked it out of the park with these!

Lipstick After

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick | It’s no secret these have been my favourite lipsticks for a long time! They’ve now probably been overtaken by the Rimmel The Only One and the Bourjois lipsticks… however, there still are some super cute shades in this range – mainly Rimmel 107!

Mac Lipsticks | These are a cult classic! I’ve wittled down to 2 lipsticks from 4… mainly because I’ve lost two of them. However, they’re some of my most worn lipsticks and I really don’t think you can beat a Mac lipstick!

GOSH Lipstick | Such an underratted brand, these lipsticks are so nice! If you haven’t tried a GOSH lipstick, I highly recommend it!

NYX Mini Lipsticks | I had 24 of these back in the day (as I had the NYX Advent Calendar a few years back) and I’ve culled them down to these 3 – a nude, a red, and a bright pink. Everything you’ll ever need!

No.7 Stay Perfect Lipstick | These got colour matched to my skin tone! A beautiful copper shade, this really is such a flattering shade!

Stila Color Balm Lipstick | I can’t get over the peppermint scent of these lipsticks, however, it is a great balmy option for those no makeup makeup days!

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick | you really can’t get a better red than this! This is one of my favourite lipsticks of all time! Super glossy, super pigmented and easy to apply, this is a winner!

What’s your favourite lipstick colour/formula?

  1. I’m loving this decluttering series! I have one of the Soph lipsticks with Revolution and love the colour, but agree that it’s not the most unique shade range in the world. Topshop lipsticks are such a throwback too xx

  2. Love a good declutter! I adore the Rimmel The Only One Matte Lipsticks too, but I don’t know if they’re discontinuing them :/ They’re no longer on the Boots or Superdrug website, and the Rimmel website just links to Amazon now! Hope not because the formula is fab for a drugstore matte! x
