My lipstick collection + swatches
I did a lip collection post last year, not long after I went cruelty-free. In that post, I decided to add my non cruelty-free products that I had. I now wanted to do an updated kinda lip collection, but with just my cruelty-free products. I went cruelty-free last year and although I haven't bought anything tested on animals, I do still have my non cruelty-free lipsticks.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick | I am obsessed with this lipstick. I think its definitely my favourite that I own. This is in the shade Sandstorm and its a lovely shade, its described as a true nude. It lasts hours and I don't find it to be drying at all. I also like the doe-foot applicator, it bends at the end slightly, which makes applying easier.
Makeup Revolution Salvation Lip Lacquer | I have mixed feelings about this lipstick. This is a Makeup Revolution Salvation Lip Lacquer in the shade Keep Trying For You and its a lovely red lipstick. It dries completely matte, however its very drying after a little while. Although its drying, it lasts a good amount of time on. I like to apply lip balm over this, which prevents it from being so drying. This is probably my least worn lipstick, but I do really love the colour.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | This beige nude lip cream is one of my favourite lip products. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams were one of the first things I wanted to try from NYX. I'd heard more about the lip creams at the time than any of the other liquid lipsticks from NYX. This lip cream has a vanilla scent, that smells amazing. I feel like the lip cream is easy to control due to the wand being smaller. I don't know if anyone else finds that? This isn't drying, however I always wear a lip balm beforehand, otherwise this probably would be. This lasts for a good few hours without eating or drinking.
Barry M Lip Paint | This is my newest lipstick purchase. This is the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Pose and its from the Lip Kit. I love this shade. Its pink and really pretty. I love the formula on this. Its thin and lightweight, but really pigmented. This isn't drying and the consistency is a little runny, however I feel like thats not a bad thing because I only need a small amount of product.
NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick | I love this liquid lipstick, but not as much as my liquid suede cream lipstick. This is in the shade Beauty Mark, which is a dark brown and its the darkest lipstick I own. I think of it as such an Autumnal shade. I have to apply lip balm and prep my lips before applying this lipstick, otherwise it'll be really drying. The applicator is different to others I've tried. Its a thin, flat doe-foot applicator, but it applies well and nicely.
NARS Pure Matte Lipstick | Matte lipsticks are my favourite. This is the only cruelty-free lipstick I own that isn't a liquid lipstick. This is in the shade Montego Bay and its a pinky nude. I love how this looks around the Spring/Summertime. This isn't drying whatsoever and lasts quite a well on.
Barry M Lipliner | I thought I'd add my lipliner into this post as I've only got one cruelty-free lipliner. This is from the Barry M Pose Lip Kit and its such an incredible lipliner. Its a lovely shade, that goes well with some of my lipsticks. It glides on easily and smoothly.
