4 Lipsticks, 1 Shade

It´s just one of those stereotypes: Women hoard things. I´d so like to prove everyone wrong that says that but funnily enough, I haven´t met one woman that doesn´t hoard something. Whether it´s something typical like shoes or bags or something a little different like cute kitchen utensils or books. For me, that thing is makeup or to specify it a little more: lipsticks. Lip products alone make up about 1/3 of my entire makeup collection - I wish I was kidding! Yet I keep buying more and more. Something I´ve realized recently is that I just keep on buying more lipsticks of the same mauve nude shade because I constantly fall head over heels in love with it. So here are 4 of my favourite lipsticks that are actually almost the same shade - but we´re going to pretend they aren´t!

One of my favourite lipsticks of all time is the Kylie Cosmetics Lipkit in Candy K. I think it has been featured on this blog many times and I always recount the story of how it survived me watching Finding Dory with an oncoming cold. It survived about 3 hours of constantly blowing my nose and eating popcorn without as much as a smudged corner. This is a dream come true - although it does dry out my lips a little bit! It´s also the lipstick that started my obsession with this colour as I get complimented on it quite regularly and I think it might be my favourite nude shade on me!

The next kind of inadvertent addition to my collection was Urban Decay´s Comfort Matte Vice Lipstick in Backtalk. It´s also been mentioned on this blog more than once but what can I do when I love this lipstick so dearly?! I reviewed it fully back when the Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks were first released. Let´s just say it´s definitely worth its money and will last me for hours on end even with eating and drinking in between. It´s just one of those lipsticks that I´ll put on and then not have to think about for the rest of the day. That´s my kind of lipstick!

As mentioned before I just adore this colour and am always drawn to it. Maybe that´s how the last two lipsticks got into my possession. I bought both of them on a whim because I just loved their colours so much! The PS Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon was something that I wanted to pick up solely for the purpose of seeing it was any good. Of course I was immediately drawn to the shade Uncovered. It holds up surprisingly well for its price tag! It does leave my lips kind of dry and needs reapplying after 2-3 hours but it has a great pigmentation. In general, it´s just amazing value for money and you definitely can´t go wrong here!

The newest addition to this collection was the NYX Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar. Guess what happened.. NYX was released in my local drugstore, I went to pick out a few things and absolutely fell in love with this shade - what a surprise! If you´re looking for something in this exact mauve nude shade but don´t want to spend a lot of money this is the one lipstick you should definitely check out! Directly compared to the pricier options the quality is a little bit lower but for a drugstore lipsticks it´s pretty amazing! I can leave it on for about 4 hours without worrying about it, it´ll survive drinking with only minor smudging and is just generally very comfortable to wear. Food is the only thing that seems to be its enemy and that´s so okay with me. I just love this lipstick and its quality very much.

The real question here is if my obsession with this shade is still within reason or if I should really, really stop myself now. What am I talking about? I definitely won´t be able to stop myself if I see a shade like this and absolutely fall in love - I´m sorry, bank balance. We all need backups of our favourite shade though, right? Right?! Anyway, as the true lipstick hoarder I am I will now go back to claiming that these are all slightly different shades and that I need every single one. Maybe that´ll make me look more sane in front of other people (or it might have the opposite effect.. you never know).

What is your favourite shade of lipstick right now? Is there something you hoard?
