I have been so busy lately that it has actually gotten to the point where I am running out the door each morning and applying my lipstick on the bus. Due to this I have managed to accumulate an unnecessary number of lip products in my makeup bag - all of them pink and sheer. So if you are looking for some easy to wear lip colours, read onward! 

The stash

First up we have the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecter in Rose Shimmer. These are the perfect cross between a gloss and a balm. They make your lips feel well moisturised and glossy for quite a long time after application, which is more than I can say for some lip balms. Rose Shimmer is a milky pink, but to be honest it doesn't give much of a tint. If you don't usually like lipgloss, I think you'd like this.
Next we have a Mirenesse Lipgloss in some sort of coral colour. I got these lipglosses forever ago, and the packaging has since worn off. These are super opaque and long lasting for a lipgloss. They smell amazing too, like fake cookies and cream.
I received this Carmex Moisture Plus Balm in Sheer Pink in a Bellabox some time ago, and it's probably the most used product I ever got from them. For a lipbalm it definitely imparts a decent amount of colour on my lips. I guess it smells kinda of menthol-ish? Either way, an amazing handbag product.
I don't think I can say anything that hasn't already been said about the Revlon Lip Butters. Let me just say, yes I agree they are great every day products, sheer and easy to apply. Peach Parfait is a peach with golden glitters and Pink truffle is a plummy brown.
Essence All About Cupcake was given to me by Jen and it is such a nice lipstick for such a good price. It smells kinda fruity and has great opaque coverage on the lips. I don't feel guilty about carrying this around either as if I lose it it won't hurt my wallet very much!

I also wanted to give a special mention to Chanel Rogue Coco Shine in Boy - which has already been reduced to a nub due to overuse. It is currently missing in action! :( I hope I haven't lost it. Especially considering how much it cost :(

Oh and the bag is by Fossil!

What lip products do you keep in your purse?



  1. Lovely post. And the colors are great! xx

  2. Oh I do the same, accumulating lip products in my handbag! I love how easy it is to whack on the Revlon Lip Butters and they come in such gorgeous shades. The Mirenesse lipgloss looks gorgeous on your lips, I really like the colour! I should get my hands on the Clarins Lip Perfector as I've been reading so much about them :)

  3. I usually have 3-5 lip products rattling around in my purse. The only one that stays in at all times is my Yes to Carrots lip butter. I rotate daily and clean it out on Friday. Right now I only have two: Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, and Vasanti (a Canadian company) lip butter in Cancun.

  4. Somehow lip products are just so easy to stuff into one's bag. All About Cupcake is pretty!

  5. I have the clarins lip perfector and the essence lipstick ^^ love them both!
    I always carry The Body Shop Hemp lip balm in my cosmetic purse + 1 sheer lipstick ( currently Maybelline watershine Blushing berry ) and 1 red lipstick ( currently Kate Moss Rimmel london matte lipstick #111 ). I regularly switch the colored lipsticks but the hemp lip balm always stays. It is the only lip balm that works for my chappy lips..

  6. I love the colours of the Revlon lip butters! I might have to add these to my MLBB collection :)

    and I can totally relate about having to rush out the door, I end up applying lippy on my early morning drive to uni when I'm stuck in traffic...eek, not a very good habit lol.

  7. I love All About Cupcake!
    And they all look nice, kinda from the same color family :)

  8. The Carmex lip balm is one of my favourites! The Essence lip cake looks lovely as well :) x

  9. Love these! I don't tend to carry around too many with me - usually just whatever I've decided to put on that day. Sometimes I'll forget to clean out my bag though and end up with a whole bunch of lip products haha

  10. Your make up bag is lovely and dinky. You really suit a pink lip x

  11. Great post, love all the pretty light pink colours. Nice & easy to chuck on without having to worry too much. My bag doesn't take long to fill up with different lip products! xx

  12. I keep WAY too many lip products in my handbag too haha. I love the look of that Essence lippy. Oh and you will be proud - I finally bought a Revlon Lip Butter (in Tutti Frutti)!! xx

  13. the Clarins one is really pretty:)
