I have a habit of accumulating lip products in my bag… Although it got batter with time, I still have around three – five by the end of the week.
So, I’ve decided to look inside the makeup bag that I carry with me (and it’s only Wednesday) and see what lip products are there, and here are the results.
1 L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm – review
This is a very good lip balm, and, I think, I have with me pretty much all the time. It is moisturising without being greasy, exactly what I like in a balm.
2 Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily – review
This may be my
This is such a great collection, I’d really love to check out some products. They are perfect for summer. Read the details:
To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!

If you can’t decide if you should or should not use a toner I suggest this post at BeautyMouth.
I personally use a toner and right now I am using two: Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner and Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin.
I know that this Clarins toner is a favourite of many people and I can understand why. It is gentle, doesn’t dry out the skin and leaves it fresh, clean (when used after a cleanser obviously) and ready for the moisturizer.
I also love the camomile scent and the yellow bottle.
The key ingredients are: Bio-Ecolia:
While I did try to write about the beauty products I’ve used up, at some point I’ve got annoyed, as having a huge bag of empty bottles at home was not cool. But I’ve started posting what new products I get to replace some of those I’ve used up over at my Instagram
However, I do want to share my makeup empties. And, considering how many products I actually have, finishing even one is kind of a big deal. And I have five! I did not include any mascaras though, as I do use up several every year.
Dior Addict Lipstick in 561 Baby Rose (review and swatches)
I loved this lipstick so much and I would re-purchase it, however, Dior re-launched this line, so I will have to look for a similar version. Barely there sheer pinks are my version of a nude lip, so I do end up using quite a lot of lip products like this.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose (review and swatches)
Another sheer pink, and another Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector empty. I have finished quite a lot of these during the years, both glosses and
