Mini Lipsticks and Lipglosses Collection

I was recently going through my makeup stash and I realised that I have a thing for mini lipsticks and mini lip glosses. I just love to collect them because they are possibly one of the cutest makeup items ever created (along with mini mascaras). I hardly ever finish full size lipsticks so I am beginning to think minis are the way to go. I actually wish more brands would create mini lipsticks that are inexpensive so one can try them out before taking the plunge. I really want to try the Tom Ford Lips and Boys mini but they are super expensive!!! Some of these lip products were free with Magazines, free via a new launch or Gift with Purchase (GWP). One or two were actually bought (The By Terry ones are full size although they look like minis). One theme you would  find in this post is that I love having a nude shade and a bold shade!!  Right, let's get started...

By Terry Rouge Velvet //£30 // Link
I thought I might as well start from the most expensive lip product which is actually a liquid lipstick (one of the best I have tried). I still stagger at how expensive these Rouge Velvets are but I have to say they are absolutely worth it. I purchased two shades I knew I would get the most use out of- A Nude Shade (Pause Cappuccino 02) and A Bold Shade (My Red 09). I used the Pause Cappuccino this morning (btw I use it most mornings) and I realised it is almost on its last legs. I definitely would repurchase (when I rack up Space NK points). It is one of the best shades for my lips and the lasting power is so beautiful. The My Red is also fantastic but I use it more during the weekends because it is quite a bold shade. I already mentioned that the My Red transfers slightly but now I just pat it with some setting powder and that really helps.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipgloss // £15 (full size) // Link
I purchased this duo discounted in the sales from £16.50 to £11 (not a huge discount but it's better than nothing) in Debenhams and I am so pleased I got my little mitts on it. I really like Urban Decay products and I am beginning to expand my collection. Inside this cute lip gloss set, you get two products- Anarchy (the pink shade) and Liar (the nude shade). I had actually never read about this lipglosses so I tried them with an open mind. They have a really lovely formula that sits well on my lips. The lasting power is really impressive and surprisingly, the nude shade (Liar) lasts really well on my lips. I am not a huge fan of sticky lipglosses so I was a little apprehensive about these lipglosses. However, I am quite pleased with the formula. I still feels ever so slightly sticky but it's not very noticeable at all (except you are looking out for it like me).

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss //£23 (full size) //Link 
I got this along with the Estee Lauder Color Portfolio which I picked up in the sales (check out my boxing day sales post here). I have tried Estee Lauder Lipsticks in the past so I was pleased to try out the lipglosses. Inside the kit, I got two shades- Praline Paradise (the nudey one) and Plum Divine (bold shade). These shades are super flattering on my skin tone and I really enjoy wearing them. They do feel sticky on application (well, they are glosses, aren't they?) but the stickiness wears off over time to my delight. The Praline Paradise is perfect for days when I don't want to make an effort but still look put together and amazing for everyday wear. The Plum Divine is very flattering on my complexion and I love it for Winter.

Clinique Pop Lipsticks// £16 (full size)// Link
This was a free gift with the December 2015 Elle Magazine (the Issue with Tanya Burr on the Cover). I love when brands include generous magazine freebies and I am always buying more than one issue of such magazines. There were two shades of these Pop Lipsticks- Nude Pop and Cherry Pop. They have one of the best formulas I have tried and I am seriously considering buying a few full sizes. They glide easily on the lips, last a good while and the packaging is so beautiful. They are really dinky and I love popping them out from my makeup bag for a quick touch up. Cherry Pop is my absolute favourite from the range and I would have to get other bolder shades in full sizes as they look stunning.

Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Lipsticks//£23.50 (full size)// Link
I can't find any cute picture of these lipsticks but they are the ones on the far left. My absolute favourite brand for super generous gifts with purchases has to be Lancome. All the times I have made purchases, I have been gifted with the cutest Gifts with Purchases which are perfect for travelling. I also like that their sizes are generous. I have lost count of how many of these cute L'Absolu Rouge Lipsticks I have but they are one of my faves. The formula is superb and it feels very moisturising on my lips. I forget it is actually on my lips until I catch a glance of my reflection in the lift mirror and I am like ""ooh yeah, look at that cute lipcolour!" (very vain, I know). I have tons of the shade 06 (Rose Nu) but I was delighted to finally get a red shade (can't remember the number) but I love it. I never want this to finish because it is a flattering red for my complexion.

Burberry Kisses Lipstick //£25 (full size) // Link
I believe this is my only Burberry makeup product and I really like it. I remember when it was launched last year and a friend could nominate you to get a free sample. I thought that was an amazing campaign and I wanted to try a darker shade but sadly, they had run out and I received the Nude Pink (05) instead. It has a beautiful formula as you would expect from anything high end like Burberry. It can be used lightly for a sheer wash of colour or built up for a proper colour. I really like it but I don't use it as often as I should. The packaging is also really luxe and I love the effort they put behind the campaign!!

Overall Thoughts
That's pretty much my entire little collection of cute lipsticks and glosses. I forgot to mention my lovely NARS Lip pencils but they have been featured already. I hope you enjoyed this round up and do let me know if you love cute minis like me or prefer the full size. What's your favourite Lipstick or Lipgloss?

    1. I absolutely agree with you and I would always reach for lipsticks over lipglosses because they feel better on my lips. Minis are always cute!!..xx
