The lip products I have on my desk and in my bag

I've done posts like this before and love hearing what others have on their desk and in their bag!  I have the exact same circle of lippie life in that I wonder why I'm having shoulder pain, decide to go through my bag, find eleven million lip products in there, take them all out, put on bag, wonder why it feels so weird, feel like I've constantly left my wallet somewhere due to lightness of bag, start plopping more lip products in each day, usually one or two due to testing out and feeling bad for leaving them at home.

So this is what I currently have in my bag and what I keep on my desk in terms of lip products.  And if you think I'm weird, please note that in the past I've had a good 18-20 products in there, so make of that what you will.  (I agree, I'm a lunatic)

I'm a lip balm addict and panic if I only have one in my bag, so I have a good three to four on rotation at any given time.  I'm still in denial that Space NK have discontinued their Life lip balm because it was seriously brilliant.  So I'm squeezing every last drop out of this tube.  A similar lip balm is the Glam Balm Lip from Rodial which has the same gel texture but the packaging makes for messy application each time I use it.  I always squirt too much out, but it's really lovely and I'll finish the tube.  I always have a tube of Cicaplast Lips from La Roche-Posay on the go and it's melt on your lips texture gives a hit of hydration and nourishment.  Finally we have the Lanolips 101 Ointment which can be used as a lip balm or on cuticles.  I was only sent this the other day but already know it's love and I'll be purchasing it myself.  It doesn't matter that it's made of sheep juice.

My bag and desk is never without a bit of Clarins and the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is a winner, adding a lovely glossy finish to the lips while feeling like I'm giving them a treatment.  The Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Rose feels so comfortable on the lips and gives a wash of milky pink colour which is perfect for spring.  Yes, when I go on my holidays I'm going to buy the coral and orange shade and possibly the rosewood one too.  Love these so much and I'm nearing the end of mine!

Shiseido sent me one of their Veiled Rouge lipsticks in shade PK304, or as I like to call it, the most gorgeous peach shade ever.  I'll be talking about this in more detail in an upcoming blog post, but this semi-sheer, glossy lipstick is absolutely beautiful and I want to check out more shades.  It glides over the lips like buttah and again, like every other lip product on this list, gives my lips moisture and nourishment.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Made it Mauve is the perfect "my lips but better" shade and at the time of writing this, I've also added Pin Up Peach into my bag.  I really hope Maybelline brings these here because they knock Revlon's Lip Butters out of the water in terms of formula and lasting power.  I'll do a full review on them in the hopes that Maybelline decide just on that review alone to bring them here!

Ah my beloved Burberry lipstick in Golden Peach.  I've done a full blog post on this and it's the brightest of the three I picked up and keep it handy for when I'm heading out after work and want to add a little somethin' somethin' to my exhausted mush!

So now it's over to you, what's in your bag or on your desk?



  1. Ah love the look of the Clarins. Didn't know La Roche Posay did a cici for the lips. Top of my purchase list!

  2. I don't have any of these! There's not a single lip product in my bag at the minute because I organised them but on the window beside me there's a Vichy lip balm, a LRP lip balm, a Blistex lip repair thing, MAC Hue, and I am leaving the house tomorrow so no doubt will be bringing a few friends in the bag - just remembered there's probably a lip crayon in my bag, I like the NYC and Wet n Wild balm crayon stain things!
