What's In My Bag | Lip Products

I was going to do a what's in my bag post but since I just have the normal things in my bag at the moment I thought it would be more interesting to focus on just the lip products. I've been having a bit of a love for these nudey pink lipsticks and it's what i've been wearing all the time. I am going to try and start reaching for some brighter options but for now these have been the main lip products i've been wearing.

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Crayon in Honey - £7.99 - Most of these are new purchases but this is one i've had in my stash and is something I dug out when I started wearing these shades. The balm consistency is very comfortable on and leaves a nice, natural colour to the lips. The wear time isn't the longest but it is so easy to reapply even without a mirror that it just a handy shade to have in my bag. 
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Tea and Cookies - £6.50 - This is a newer purchase and one that I reach for when I want something that is longwearing. This takes a little while to get a good application but when it sets it is waterproof and even stays in place after a few too many coffees. The shade is a really good dusky pink which has a nice brightness to it.
NYX Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul - £5.50 - This is probably my favourite shade at the moment and formula. It is a matte lip that is very comfortable on and this shade looks so nice on. I've been loving these matte lip creams and I keep picking up more shades as the formula is nice with a fairly decent wear time.

L-R Revlon Honey, NYX Tea and Cookies, NYX Istanbul, Rimmel Eastend Snob, Collection Liberty, Essence 07 Natural Beauty. 
Rimmel Lip Liner in EastEnd Snob - £3.99 - The lip liner that started the obsession. I'm now actually onto my second one since i've been wearing it pretty much everyday. I wear it alone and it comfortable but mostly as a base to any of these shades as it makes them last so much longer as well as make it wear evenly. 
Collection Deluxe Lipstick in Liberty - £3.99 - This shade is the most like your traditional nude shade and paired with the lip liner is so nice. For me it is the perfect nude lip and something I wear to work a lot as well as at a wedding recently. It looks natural and put together and it wears nicely. It is easy to top up as well without looking uneven. 
Essence Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty - £2.30 - I feel like the brand Essence has some real stand out products that need more love and this lipstick is definitely one of them. The packaging does feel a little cheap but the formula of the lipstick is so creamy and applies nicely. This shade is beautiful and is very comfortable to wear. I'm yet to pick up another shade but I definitely plan on doing.

All of these are firm favourites and I tend to switch between them all throughout the week. Now it is getting warmer I think I will start reaching for the brighter shades as I love natural makeup with a bright lip in the Summer. Do you find that you have lots of the same shade of lip products in your handbag? What are some of your favourite lip products at the moment?
