What's in my handbag - lip products only!

So it's happened again.  I switched handbags early this month and despite promising myself that I'd keep my handbag light and free from millions of lip products, I've managed to amass a ridiculous collection that are threatening to damage my back from the weight and the last thing I want is a bandy back.  But yet I love them all and it pains me when I leave one behind at home.  What if I need it?  It could be the perfect lip product for my look and I could potentially leave it at home, festering, forgotten.  That's not nice now is it?


I know.  I actually know.... And they're all bloody nudes.... FML... RIP...

Bourjois Rouge Edition in shade 04 is a gorgeous dusty pink shade that I love blending into my lips with my finger to give a really natural look.  This is creamy and one of my favourite formulas in lippies.

Maybelline Color Sensational in Tantalizing Taupe is one of my recent purchases and is a wonderful nude lipstick with slight pinky undertones to it.  This feels slippy and moisturising on the lips and is a joy to slather on.

Smashbox lipgloss in Radiant.  This is one of my favourite glosses because it adds a my lips but better colour but with extra sparkle and we do know I like a bit of sparkle.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Shade 04 is a light milky pink gloss that does wonders for my lips and feels like a treatment.  I have it in a more coral shade which is perfect for summer and feel that I need the caramel shade too.

Rimmel Notting Hill Nude is a warm light brown nude which sounds manky but trust me, it's lovely on.  I like to apply it from the bullet and then blend it in with my finger to give a natural finsh.

Dior Addict Extreme in Gri Gri.  This shade is perfect.  It's a light peachy nude that's perfect for spring and feels really moisturising on.

L'Oreal Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick. I can't remember the shade name and it has no label, but stay tuned this week for a review of this and another coral one too.  This is L'Oreal's answer to the YSL Glossy Stain and I'm loving it.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in Nudist.  This is my favourite nudie lip product ever and I'm so close to finishing it and will have to repurchase!  It's thick, not sticky and is pretty dang perfect.

The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Balm was found in the bottom of an old handbag and I rejoyced because I thought I'd lost it!  I love the whole range and the lip balm is thick, smells gorgeous and works wonders on the lips.

NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu is a pigmented, deliciously scented pinky nude that makes me happy and gets me excited that NYX will be available nationwide in Ireland soon.  

Carmex Moisture Plus.  There's no shade on the tube but this is a peachy coral shade that adds colour and hydration to the lips with a bit of a tingle too.  I'm nearly at the end of this and will purchase again because it was my first foray into the world of Carmex and now I want more.

Lanolips in Rhubarb.  If you like the thought of sheep juice on the lips then this is a good option.  Made with lanolin and with a hint of pink to it, this injects moisture into the lips but you need to have a wet wipe handy because it's sticky.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Levres.  I wasn't happy having just one.  No, I needed two.  I must have been worried about one being nearly finished and popped a second into my bag.  If your lips are in anyway bad shape, then this will sort them out promtly.  A must have.

So what lip products are you carrying around with you at the moment?  What do I need to try and what's your absolute favourite nudie?

  1. Yep, thirteen lip things in my bag, two in the door of the car, and I grab whatever one I put on in the bathroom or bedroom and throw that in my pocket "just in case". But it HAS happened, I've wanted to use a Covergirl Trushine and not had it, and had to use a Catrice instead and it was basically the same shade but not the same finish so completely different, to be honest....I take no chances now. They all travel with me.

  2. Have the clarins perfector & clinque chubby stick in the bag at the mo. loving armani lipsticks! Number 600 is next on my wishlist! Would love to get the mac lipstick palette that holds 6 shades-think it would be so handy to have in my handbag.

  3. I really like the look of the L'oreal liquid lipstick. I have read a few reviews on them and they are right up my street. I also have a ridiculous amount of lip products in my handbag

  4. You could be in need of Dr. Lucas' Pawpaw ointment, which is handy for just about everything, and then there's Dior's Glow balms, with an intuitive pink as a permanent part of their lineup, and my fave, coral glow, as part of their spring collection. And while I can't wear one throughout the day without having some sort of a reaction, I'm liking the Marvelous Moxie glosses. Then there's Guerlains lipglosses that are worth every penny - and in Norway it's not that much difference, really between luxury and "budget" prices so it can be justified. But the real treat is Guerlains Rouge Automatiques. Come to think of it, I need another one.

  6. I'm more of an eyes girl myself. I have Sexy Mother Pucker XXL in How Nude and Guerlain Rouge Automatique in 103 which is even more nude - but you can open it with one hand, apply from the bullet without a mirror and keep going, which I love

    1. Well why did I go and google the Rouge Automatique now? That looks gowjus and also very aerodynamic and stuff with the no lid. I've one of them and hold it wrong every single time I use it, always comes out the bottom ;P

    1. I love Nudist so much it hurts... It doesn't hurt actually, just my purse when I repurchase it because I can't be without it!
