Lipstick Loving

First of all, this lovely image is an artwork titled Lipstick Painting by Jean Hildebrant and very appropriate for this post!

Taking inspiration from the post on Get Lippie’s blog and thinking about one of my favourite topics (lipstick), I decided to have a root in my handbag this week and see how many lip products I actually carry around! More than I thought let me tell you… and such an eclectic mix!



From Left in the bottom pic; MAC Phlox, MAC Rebel, No. 7 Grace, MAC Cockney, NYX Lipgloss in Tea Rose, Chanel Lipgloss no.407 and good ol’ Nivea Lip Balm. How many lip products can a girl possibly need? A lot obviously.
On top of this, and the many other bullets in my collection, I have been looking for the perfect pink lippy this week. I spent a very pleasant an hour or so browsing in Boots at the Bourjois stand and settled on the very juicy 57 Fuschia Class. A luscious deep creamy pink. Fabulous!

Later on in the day I don’t know what happened but I found myself at the Dior stand staring at the Dior Addict Lipstick range, some of which I have already so I really don’t need any more.

As I said, it was all so sudden, I don’t know how I got there. ..the shop assistant was so very persuasive (not really) and I ended up falling truly madly deeply in love with no.669. A sheer shimmery pink. I also love the packaging for both this range and the relaunched range which is out in the UK now but not here, no surprise there.

I think that will put an end to my lipstick shopping for a little while, apart from the Poppy King for No. 7 lipsticks that I ordered online a few days ago….

    >Ooh lovely – the shop assistant was so very persuasive (not really) haha, I love your posts, you definitely have a talent for writing.

    I usually have to have a good empty out when my make up bag starts getting difficult to zip up, it's so easy to just keep adding lippies in & is so hard to remove any! Girl never knows what she might fancy!?!

    Looking forward to seeing your new No7 lippies.

    >Have a fancy for a pink lipstick myself, having recently recovered from a close brush with nude lips! Will have to add the Bourjois ones to my list to check on Saturday. And will have to make sure I avoid the Dior counter like the plague!
