In my dressing table I have three compartments, one for face products, one for eye products, and one for lip products. Recently I noticed the one for lip products was getting a little full, so decided to give it bit of a clear out when I realised why it seemed so full, I own far too many lipsticks. I’m not quite sure when or how this happened,¬†especially¬†as I’m not someone who wears lipstick everyday, so it seems a tad ridiculous that I have around 50 lipsticks!


When I was going through my lipstick compartment I found loads of old favourites that I’d forgotten about, products like lip crayons that I was once upon a time obsessed with, Benefit’s Lollitint which I loved, and the Rimmel Apocalips. How could I forget about all these lipsticks I once loved! Everytime I’ve bought a new lipstick it’s been stuck at the front of the collection, meaning my old favourites have found themselves to the back and have been completely forgotten about. I felt so bad about my poor neglected lipsticks that I’ve given my lipstick collection a good reshuffle to remind myself of some of my older lipsticks. As it’s the new year I’ve given myself a kind of beauty new years resolution to wear more of my lipsticks, and as I’m on my spending ban I won’t be buying anymore at least!

I seriously can’t believe how many lipsticks I’ve got that I’ve just forgotten about, and I dread to think how much money I’ve spent! Are you like me and are bit of a lipstick hoarder? Or have you got your stash under control?
