My Capsule Makeup Collection: Lips

There are a couple of facts worth knowing about me... One is that I have moved a LOT. From Essex, to Cambridge, to Suffolk, back to Essex, to Chichester, back to Cambridge then back to Chichester - it's all been very stressful. Currently am down South waiting for the boyfriend's lease to finish on his student house so we can move out into our first proper home. Because of this, my stuff is literally everywhere - mums, dads, sisters so I have had to be very selective about what I have down here for the moment.

The other thing to know about me (which is not helped by fact one) is I am terrible at losing things. Made worse by alcohol and being busy and not having a real home for anything, things are all over the place and I rarely manage to make it to the end of any product without losing it first.

Both of these facts combined have culminated in me having a very small capsule makeup collection. After starting my new job I'm slowly in the process of upgrading my collection to more high end brands but I thought I'd show you my makeup 'wireframe' that I'm living off of whilst I am waiting to move.

Today is LIPS! I am usually more of a gloss girl, because I prefer going heavy on the eyes (and I'm mostly a believer in eyes or lips!) but since I've been blonde, I've been a bit more adventurous especially with my reds.

(Clockwise Edges then centre) 1. Soap & Glory - Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Plump in 'Clear'
2. L'Oreal - Colour Riche in 461 'Scarlet Creme'
3. L'Oreal - Colour Riche in 245 'Heavenly Gold'
4. Rimmel - Kate Moss Lasting Matte Finish in 111 'Kiss of Life'
5. Rimmel - Vinyl Gloss in 'Cosmic'
6. Rimmel - Kate Moss Lasting Finish in '15'
7. Sleek - True Colour in 'Vamp'
8. Sleek - True Colour in 'Barely There'
9.Sleek - True Colour in 'Cherry'
10. Lancome - Juicy Tubes in 95 'Marshmallow Electro'
11. L'Oreal - Colour Riche in 297 'Red Passion' (Cheryl Cole edition)
12. MUA Lipstick (I'm sorry I can't remember what shade it's so old!)
13. Bourjois - 3d Effect Lip Gloss in 'Rouge Democratic'
14.  Rimmel - Kate Moss Lasting Finish in 107 

Do you have any of these shades? If so what are your favourites? I think my favourites are obviously Kate's 107 (same as so many) and the Cheryl Cole special edition L'Oreal because it feels so silky and it's a really rich classy colour but my newest purchase - Sleek's 'Barely There' is being reached for daily so it's definitely up there. The one I was really disappointed with was Kate Moss in 15, its just not as luxurious feeling as the others I've tried in the collection and colour is actually pretty weird once it's on.
