My Lipstick Collection

This is for all you LIPSTICK ADDICTS! My Lipstick Collection revealed!
It was requested many times, and I've actually been meaning to do it for a long time now, but I always thought next week....next week....procrastinate ++++.  Now, I can't delay it anymore, since I'm leaving my home & country (reason here)
*Please Note: This is what we Beauty Bloggers do, and we NEVER call it "showing-off", okay? =)
That's never the intention. I personally enjoy seeing other people's makeup-collections & how they store them. I mean, we buy & review them, so we also need to see how they live too, no? 
Since I put all my lip products in this stack of drawers, you'll see my other lip products too- lipglosses, lip balms, etc.
These are Nayasa drawers I've shown you before. On top there is the Vanity Organizer from Home Stop

3 drawers. Top- Lipsticks, Middle- Assorted/Messy, Bottom: Lakmé

Top Drawer (from back): Kryolan, Rimmel London, NYX, Lotus Herbals, ZA, Essence, IN2IT, L'Oreal, Inglot, Colorbr, Revlon
Bottom Drawer: Only Lakmé lip products.

The middle drawer is full of assorted products & very messy. Let me take out some products, and show you what's under that pile.....

MAC Lipglosses, Nivea Fruity Shines and stuff, Maybelline, Illamasqua, Elle 18, etc....etc

On the side, I put in a Ferrero Rocher container just to keet lip balms and stuff. MAC Tinted Lip Conditioners, My Lipstick Sundae, The Body Shop lip balms, Inglot Lip Paint Duo, NYX Cupcake glosses, Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss,  Lip Liners in the right corner there to save space.

In the Vanity Organizer ~ Left row: Maybelline, MAC permanent, MAC Limited Editions. Right Row: Bourjois, Make Up For Ever, Nice-Packaging-High-End combined

Doesn't this look like a lipstick choir? They are singing: "Tik Tok on the clock, but the party don't stop, no...oh oh oh oh....oh oh oh oh...."

The "Special" section:
  • Jelly Pong Pong Muffin & Meringue Gloss Set from my blogger friend from Netherlands- Witoxicity
  • Shu Uemura Lip Gloss Set ~  Mr.CZ got it for me from Hong Kong many years ago. His 1st make-up present that wasn't on "The List" =) ♥
  • In the front are lippies with the best packaging & Limited Editions: Guerlain Rouge G, Lancome Absolu Nu, Max Factor Elixir, Shu Uemura, Skin Food Honey Pot, Etude House Angel Kiss, YSL Rouge Volupte, MAC Give Me Liberty Of London Collection, The Balm, Etude House, IN2IT, MAC Venomous Villains Collection. Right int he front MAC Hello Kitty Perennial High Style Lipglass 

Hope you enjoyed this post. It was so tedious lining up the opened lipsticks, and I have never felt so nervous, coz I was afraid I'd knock them over like Dominoes =D

By the way, I've decided not to sell any of them at this time [ I WON'T! I CAN'T! Nahiiii! ]

I will keep the ones I'm not taking to England with me in my traincase & ask someone to keep them for me.

I want to be "The Girl With A Collection Of 5000-10000 Lipsticks" someday.

I really do.

  10. I guess you could get rid of the cheaper, easier to find things? Like nivea lip balms and lakme glosses?
    I have moved away for a year twice in my life, and after the first time, the one thing I learnt is, throw away whatever glosses you arent taking with you.. Because glosses are the first to get icky smells and lose texture...
    Also it helps to give some stuff to close friends or people you love.. cuz its KINDA nice to see your things make someone else happy.. KINDA... its not the same as having stuff... but well... :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. You are a lipstick queen! Whenever I look at the pictures of the lipsticks, I think they are your lipstick minions (Despicable Me),lining up for your orders. They are so pretty and pink! If you don't want to give any away, why not create a makeup collection? I love collecting vintage makeup, you can do something like that. Then later, you can have a museum of makeup. Imagine showing ladies of the future, how our time did lipstick, their colours and styles. :) Okay, I'm daydreaming again~

    1. LOL! They are sort of my minions, I guess :P. Collecting them, I am, but don't know if I'll ever have a museum :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. OH MY GOD!!!!!! I can't believe my eyes!!! Dear Cynthia, how on earth do you decide which one to wear? Oh my! I am still amazed, seen the pictures over and over again :)
    The collection is awesome, and I love how neatly everything has been kept, but seriously - how do you decide which lippy to pick when you need one? I have only about 7-10 (and I thought I was hoarding too many ;P) and I feel sad for the ones that are kept in my cupboard as they don't see the light of the day, only the two in my purse keep getting repeated :)
    And again - OH MY GOD!!!!!!
    I can totally understand your not wanting to part with these! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'd be reluctant to sell off my collection too, so I quite see your problem. Hope you enjoy them for a long time. Personally, I find that cream based makeup (including lippies) stay the longest time if they are stored in the fridge. Maybe you can leave them in your family fridge?

    1. They'd have to have a different fridge just for my lippies & cream blushes then hahaha....so it won't be possible. So sad :D

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
