Before I moved to Singapore I had to do a huge makeup clear out because it was impossible for me to take all my makeup with me to another continent. It wasn't so hard to get rid of some old products but when it comes to lipsticks that's another story... its super difficult for me to decide and say goodbye to some of them. I'm obsessed with lip products and I've collected a lot over the past year. 
I just got to that point where I want to be able to use what I have. And because I move house and countries quite often maybe it’s time to get rid of some lippies sadly. My idea..I kind of want to build a capsule lipstick wardrobe if that makes sense.

Lipsticks I have to say goodbye to...
Too old lippies basically that have been around for long and they're just not the same

YSL Sheer Candy lipstick 09 Cool Guava and Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Coral are amazing sheer and hydrating balmy lipsticks but they’re quite old and the colours are not so me anymore.

YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil is a very unusual lip gloss-lip treatment oil based so it kind of sinks and hydrate the lips. I like the product but smells quite funky so it has to go..

Nars Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil is a muted rose colour with a frosted finish. I used to be obsessed with this but since I discovered Sex Machine lip pencil also from Nars, I haven't used the other so I'll give it to a friend who can use it more than me.

Marc Jacobs Love Buzz is such a special colour and that's why I don't use it much. It's such a beautiful shade though, rose gold with pearl finish.

Dior Fluid Stick #229. It's a great everyday shade, a very natural pink beige nude. I love the hybrid formula it feels like water when it goes on and doesn't feel sticky. But again this has a bit of smell so I need to let it go.

ABH Dusty Rose Liquid Lipstick is such a gorgeous colour, exactly a matte dusty rose shade. But I have to say I was disappointed with the formula and I barely use it!

Lipsticks that forever stay...
Old time faves and special ones

Chanel Mademoiselle. One of my go-to lipsticks and that I adore. It's a beautiful rose, nude pink colour that goes on smoothly and makes my lips feel moisturised and soft. (Wearing Mademoiselle in the pic above)

Laura Mercier Spiced Rose. It's the perfect natural lip colour. It's a soft mid-tone rose that goes on beautifully on the lips. 

Dior Lip Maximizer. This is a lip plumper/lip gloss. It tingles and has a minty scent but it really plumps your lips and makes my lips fuller. 

Guerlain La Petite Robe Beige Lingerie. It's just the perfect shade, it's a beautiful soft pink-nude colour. It feels very smooth and silky, giving a lovely shine to the lips

Sephora Cream Lip Stain #13. A lipstick I would repurchase over and over again. This is a lovely mauve pink-brown lip cream, very flattering and so easy to wear.

Chanel Boy Coco Shine. It's pretty much the lipstick everyone should own.. It's easy to wear, it's so moisturizing and it goes with any make up look.

L'Oreal Erotique lipstick and Burberry Lip Velvet in Nude Rose are very similar actually. They both are warm soft pink colours with a satin finish. L'Oreal Erotique was the lipstick I used on my first wedding and the Burberry was the lipstick I used on my second wedding!

Mac lipsticks...
You always need a trusty Mac lipstick in your collection. I did a big Mac clear-out before moving to Singapore so I only have three Mac lipsticks in my collection right now

Velvet Teddy, a rosy nude colour; Whirl, a matte rosy brown with a hint of mauve and Syrup, a sheer pink with a bit of mauve in it.

Favourites of the moment...
Currently on rotation 

Fenty Beauty Lip Gloss Universal. It looks like nothing exciting in the tube but this is absolutely gorgeous! It's super creamy and moisturising and gives such beautiful neutral glow to the lips. You need this!

Nars Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. The colour is a beautiful mauve pink which is quite subtle for daily use but definitely more interesting than a regular neutral colour.


Tom Ford Ford Pink Dusk. Tom Ford's lipsticks are simply amazing and this colour is the most perfect natural, neutral pink shade.


Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments
. This product is hydrating and keeps my lips moisturised and soft for hours. Plus all the colour range is so beautiful. I got these three shades: Rose, a sheer rosy tint; Petal, a pinky nude colour; and Bloom, a beautiful warm pink.
