Being a self-confessed beauty addict, my biggest weak spot is lipstick. I'm a sucker for different lipsticks because no two shades of red are the same, right? Some days are a nude lipstick day, some are pink, some are red - every day, however, is a lipstick day.

Anyway, it has recently came to my attention that I have finally filled my lipstick stand, so I thought I'd share the shades I have with you. To some of you, this may seem like a lot, and to others, it may seem like hardly any - I am in no way bragging, just sharing some thoughts on my lipstick collection with you.

I am not going to swatch any of the colours as there are quite a few but if you wish to see swatches of any or more detailed blog posts feel free to request that in the comments, and I will link any previous blog post that featuring any of the lipsticks mentioned here.

I'm going to tell you the shades starting with the back row and working forwards.

The back row is high street lipsticks, most of which I don't often reach for. Here are all the shades in the back row working from left to right:
  • Rimmel 230 Red Fever - it's a high street blue toned classic red shade. I really like the smell of these lipsticks,  however, they do feel quite 'cheap' on your lips.
  • Maxfactor  715 Ruby Tuesday - I've hardly used this lipstick since having it, however, I do love the shade, I just always forget I have it, but I am definitely going to try to start using this a bit more. Once again this is just a classic red shade, but slightly brighter than the previous lipstick.
  • Seventeen lipstick, I'm not sure of the shade as it's rubbed off - However, it's a pink-toned red.
  • Rimmel Kate Moss  31 - one of my more used high street lipsticks, it's in a muted berry colour and also smells delicious
  • Rimmel another one I'm unsure of the shade name, sorry! - this is a pretty pastel pink colour with a small amount of glitter in it, this is one of the first lipsticks I ever fell in love with, and the colour is perfect if you're just beginning to wear makeup as it is still fairly natural-looking.
  • Rimmel Provocalips Kiss me you fool - firstly how cute is the shade name of this lipstick? This is my most recent lip purchase and I've got to say I love this, it's super long-lasting and the bright red colour is perfect for the Christmas season, the only downside is it is slightly drying. I'm planning to write an entire blog post on this product soon so keep an eye out for that!
The next row is a mixture of both high end and high street lipsticks. Working from left to right we have:
  • Clinique high impact lipstick 'red-y to wear' (I think, the writing has rubbed off but looks the same on the website) -  I love this lipstick, for a very long time this was my go-to red lipstick and has almost run out now. The shade is a shimmery red colour with a slight pink tone.
  • Illamasqua Liable - to be honest, I was slightly disappointed with the product as I find it really drying, and it does not apply very smoothly, however, I like the package and it's is fairly long-lasting. This is a matt, orange-toned red.
  • Nars Heatwave - This is another orange toned red, however, I really love this one. I wrote a whole blog post on this one a fair while ago, which you can find here.
  • Calvin Klein Eros - A muted berry colour, this lipstick featured in my September Favourites which you can find here.
  • Soap and Glory Pom soap Pom - Yet another muted berry shade. This is one of my current favourites. This lipstick featured in an Autumn lips post I did not so long ago which you can find here.
  • Rimmel Apocalips Gloss Apocalyptic - This is another one I don't wear much, I think more because it's a lipgloss rather than a lipstick and I don't often find myself reaching for a lipgloss. The shade, however, is beautiful and super pigmented. It's a bright pinky-red colour.
The second row of my lipstick stand is high-end lipsticks (and a high street gloss on the end). The shades from left to right are as follows:
  • Laura Mercier Sienna - This one is quite new so I've only worn it a few times before. It's a deep purple toned berry colour which I think is perfect for this time of year. I also think the packaging is beautiful
  • MAC Ruby Woo - I am sure most of you have heard of this one before. It's a classic matt red. I find this one quite drying, so I don't use it all that much.
  • MAC Lady Danger - Another one I'm sure most of you have heard of. This is a bright orange toned red which I love. I have done an entire blog post on this one which you can find here.
  • MAC Girl About Town - One of my all-time favourite pink shades. It's a deep blue-toned pink, I have written a blog post on this (a very long time ago now!) which you can find here.
  • MAC Pink Nouveau - This is a pale pink with a purple/blue tone to it. I love this colour, however, I don't often wear this one as I don't think it suits my skin tone all that much. It looks wonderful on my sister though!
  • Barry M Lip Gloss (I'm not sure of the shade, unfortunately) - I never really use this. It's just a simple pink gloss which is handy to have, just in case.
Lastly, we have the front row, which naturally is a lot of my more loved lipsticks. The shades from left to right are:
  • Chanel 21 Rivoli - This is a dark deep berry colour, perfect for Autumn lips.
  • Chanel 38 La Fascinante - This is a classic, matt red shade. 
  • Chanel 37 L'Exuberante - This is a bright pink shade that I get out a lot during the summer months.
    • Chanel 136 Melodieuse - This is a coral shade (you might be able to tell I like Chanel lipstick a lot - they just feel so luxurious and I love the packaging too.
    • Estee Lauder Venetian Rose - This is the only nude lipstick I have ever found which actually suits me. It's a beautiful peachy nude colour.
    • Tanya Burr Picnic in the Park - This is the only lipgloss I ever really wear. I have written an entire blog post on this which you can find here.

    Last but not least, we have the one by the side (which annoying does not fit in the lipstick stand), this is Lancome L'absolu Rouge which is a bright shimmery red colour, which also smells delicious. This does bleed around the lips slightly so I would recommend a lip liner with this one.

    What's your all-time favourite lipstick?
