Hello Beauties!

Here is my lipstick collection!

Up until 2 years ago, I didn’t own more than 2-3 lipsticks, but now , thanks to internet/e-bay mostly, I own all these goodies.

I tried to do a collective swatch with numbers. Kinda failed because NYX and the rest both have a 13 number but anyway…

Nyx swatches : Milan and B52 (Guest star : Minimalism)

So here I am , after some days.

I had to babysit my best-friend’s adorable little daughter, and I couldn’t post my swatches, though I really wanted to.

Today I am gonna swatch the best seller of round lipsticks : B52, and (my favorite) Milan.

I also gonna swatch minimalism as asked to compare it with B52.

Excuse my awful nails, I am gonna manicure them later . Also, I want to tell you that I had a really hard time when doing the photos, because the sun in Athens (and yes, its DECEMBER = Winter) is really very-very strong. We have sun almost 350 days out of the 365.

The problem is that some are taken with stronger sun, some with lighter, so there is really not big difference in the colors!

(L – t – R : Milan, B52, Minimalism)

Indoors

( L – t – R : Milan (with a little more light than the others ), B52, Minimalism) .

Here are my bare lips, which I forgot to put in my previous swatches. I just wear a colorless lip balm

So this is Milan . I also put a smiley one to eliminate my lips’ wrinkles.

 

When applying, its really like applying my lips color, just more pigmented.

I love this color. I love this lipstick. Its so natural, its great. Its just my lips but (very) better. Somehow its not as popular as others, but I looooove it .

Here is B52

Okay. I must admit. First time I used it , I have more of a negative opinion. Maybe because I only saw the color in room light, and wasn’t that flattering. Seemed too mauve and brownish. But in daylight, look great. Its a bit more dark than Milan, but still a natural – my lips but better – color, maybe a couple of shades darker.

Minimalism here:

 

Here are some additional photos of Minimalism. I still love it. Out of the 3, its the one which is on the pinky side.

 

Here are all three , with non-daylight .

(L – t – R) Milan, B52 and Minimalism.

Not too different? Yeah, kind of . I have that bad habit of buying ”safe” colors…

Personally, I would recommend all of there 3 colors.

 

Which one you think looks better? Anything to add?

 

Lots of love
