Of course I don’t need new lipsticks!  That’s me hallucinating, haha! Reality check, yes I don’t need ’em but want ’em. See it’s neck-to-neck…the battle of the grandest packaging, the most value for money, best pigmentation. So many choices, not much moolah. Marketing solution? give them the minis! 

Mini lipsticks a.k.a travel or deluxe-sizes are the best way to sample a new brand or formula. And let’s get real zilla, have you ever finished a tube before it expires (usually two years)? I don’t so that’s money down the drain for ‘ya. So without further adieu, here’s my curated list of must-try’s:

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Set ($39, a $126 value). Despite reading mixed reviews (bold yet super drying on lips), I am still intrigued to try this set which features nine mini-lipsticks. I am most excited to try Motorhead (matte black cherry), Sexer (fluorescent pink) and Wonderchilde (neon lilac). This old woman is still high on out-of-this-shade no?

Too Faced Melted Kisses ($25, a 40$ value). These lippies have gotten mostly rave reviews and I’m so embarassed to admit that I haven’t tried anything, like ever! A holiday limited edition, this set has 4 shades you and I can rock year-round: nude, berry, peony, hot pink. 

Buxom Lip Gloss Roulette ($59, a $135 value). Truth: sting and shine create an illusion of fuller lips. This set includes 15 shades which suit Jane’s every mood. I have tried this lippy before and if the formula has not changed, I’m quick to tell you that it does sting but not as bad (or worse) as Duwop Lip Venom.

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash Set ($39). Before your green mind takes you elsewhere, this set features six teeny weeny Revolution lipsticks and a full-size 24/7 Glide on lip pencil. I own two of the shades featured and they’re both phenomenal (Liar, pinky nude and F bomb, classic red).

Fresh Sugar Cravings Kissing Trio ($28, a $34 value). I have tried a gamut of lip balms but Fresh  Sugar continue to be my uber favorite because they are very hydrating, plus they are tinted and have SPF 15!

What about you? what’s on your radar?

    I would like to obtain the UD lippie set. I haven't tried the Revolution lipstick, yet.

    I can't remember when I last went through an entire lipstick. I used to, back when I owned one or two. Now? ***snort***

    Yeah, I remember having gone through a couple of lipsticks when they were all I had. No way is that ever happening again, likely. I am interested in the UD set, but I heard they are tinier than minis, like doll-sized. I don't want to feel like I'm going to use it all in a couple of swipes!}

      Yes they're tiny but I think it may last me quite a while because I have a lot to rotate, lol

    I used to NEVER be a lipstick lover and now thanks to you I cant get enough. <3 I want that UD lippie set they look amazing. I have to for sure grab that Fresh set since that berry shade has been calling my name each time I walk into Sephora and it can join its other sisters (Honey, Petal, Original) I have. Great roundup of goodies!!

    You know, I don't usually go for minis – but I never finish full tubes of lipstick, either! Maybe I should switch to minis!

    I'm obsessed with little sets like this myself!! I've heard negative reviews on the kat von d set too but still want it for some reason! I also want the Urban Decay lip set by I LOVE the Revolution lipstick formula!

    Have you seen Sephoras give me more lip set? I snagged that myself and have been super happy with it!!

    • October 16, 2014 / 5:20 am

      I like that lip set, it's a great gift idea actually…. for myself, haha!

  6. October 3, 2014 / 5:42 pm
