Lipstick swatches just for fun.

So I was chatting with someone about makeup on a forum I frequent and the subject of lip products came up. We talked about how I don’t always use products that were intended for my lips on my lips because the crazy colors I want aren’t always available as lipsticks. So I decided to swatch all the products I use on my lips.

I have way too many different products that I use as lipsticks so I’ve decided to stagger these posts and share a few at a time.

Firs off!! Super important!! I always moisturize and prime my lips. I use eos lip balm and nyx lip primer pencil before I put lipstick on. Some of the products I use weren’t exactly intended to be used on lips (though it’s safe to use them on lips. I do research before I sling anything on there.) so they tend to be a bit drying so if you use any thing I share in these posts, I high suggest applying a lip balm before applying the color. The lip primer just helps with feathering and bleeding. Though if I’m to be honest, I didn’t apply it for every color because I was just putting it on, taking a photo and taking it off.  I didn’t want to waste anything.

Also, my eyebrows are a mess. I need to shape what I have and they don’t naturally grow in full and I had just gone to Sephora to get color matched and buy new foundation so I didn’t fill them in. It’s so stupid. I can color match other people like nobody’s business but I can’t color match myself for some reason. Shout out to the kind patient lady with the bitchin’ purple eyebrows at Sephora in Bakersfield!

I know these aren’t the best applications but I wanted to share my collection with you guys.
