Lipstick of the Week – Aug 21 2011

Another Sunday, another look at what has been rattling about at the bottom of my bag this week!  It’s been an exceptionally neutral week, as we shall see.  Here we have:

 L-R 

Laura Mercier Pink Cocoa
Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle
Laura Geller lipstick in Berry Banana
Clinique Moisture Surge in Tender Mauve
Dolce & Gabanna in Orchid
Serge Lutens in 03
and at the bottom, Lipstick Queen gloss in Jean Queen

Here are the swatches:

As you can see, the Laura Geller is very, very yellow in my stick, which makes it borderline unwearable.

Oh, and yes, the Serge Lutens is black.  I didn’t wear it to the office, that’s all I have to say about that one!  It’s really a stain, and it’s very good underneath reds to deepen the shade.

Oh, and a little more storage porn for you, this is how I keep my lipsticks for the week when they’re not in my bag:

Every day, I give myself a lucky dip out of the selection at hand, and arrange my makeup around whatever I pick out.  Once every couple of weeks, I change all the lipsticks in the box.  I have too many lip products …

    I do like a neutral lip and these are a great range within this spectrum, sadly I cannot bear Laura Mercier lipstick – it has some sort of burnt caramel/rubber scent to me, such a disappointment because she does do some fab colours. Thanks for these, something to whet my whistle (I am seeing if I can leave particularly old turns of phrase in my comments!) Jan x

    Oh, those pictures are fantastic. I want to reach out and grab things out of your storage box. You know I'm serious too 😉
