There we go! Pretty similar colours actually but they all wear differently. 

If you would like reviews/fotd's with any of them please let me know, not that I need an excuse to play with them :)


  1. lipsticks are one of my fave things ever!
    i love the barry m magic one, was a staple for me a couple of years ago wore it all the time!

  2. I really like the 17 mirror shine one, might have to pick it up next time im in boots :) xx

  3. whoah! awesome colors {; im not a lipstick person though. i mostly focus on eyeliners, shadows, and mascara :]


  4. Oh I love Pink Power, I have it and its among my faves too! And Ruby Woo, oh wow, so pretty! xx

  5. They're all such pretty colours, I wish I could pull off bright pinks and reds but I always end up looking ridiculous and resort to more neutral pinks xxx

  6. abby  I've only recently started getting in to eye makeup, for years I just wore liquid eyeliner & mascara on my eyes and then a bright lippy! 

  7. @google-ab4715dd1d1e3ed12ae6f7c286b57527:disqus They are really nice, I've got 3 of them I think :)

  8. @177d894491b3b81f168e3b828f9a900f The Barry M magic one was a recent rediscovery for me, I used to wear it all the time when I was younger - I'd forgotten all about it until I saw it mentioned on someone's blog and then had to go buy it! I love that it stains your lips and lasts for hours! 

  9. I am a red lipstick lover. My boyfriend rolls his eyes every time I buy a new one, but you are so right! They do wear differently! Loving the YSL one, my fave is Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Coromandel. Postbox red with amazing depth, and super long wearing.
