LIPSTICK GRAVEYEARD + Lipstick Collection Swatch-a-thon

You can never have to many lipsticks...or so I once thought. The fact is that less than 50% of what I've got on hand actually gets used. So... it's time to DE-STASH (for the full, unedited collection, see here). Today, I'll going over what's in the lipstick collection and what I'll be keeping and throwing out or giving away to family/friends. 

The Thought Process: 
(1) keep items that are almost finished, items that are not yet reviewed, and items that have colours and formulas that you truly enjoy 
(2) don't keep items that have old lady scents (or are just old in general), colours you haven't worn in months and will likely never wear, products with shimmer/glitters/pearly finish

Anything highlighted in pink and an asterisk (*) will remain in my makeup collection. Items denoted with the letter (R) will be kept for future review purposes. EVERYTHING WITH A REVIEW IS LINKED! :)

Toss - 1/57
Give Away - 25/57
Not Reviewed - 6/57
**NOTE - discrepancies between original count and this count of 66 lipsticks due to balm/lipstick/stain hybrids

LIPSTICK Realizations: 
- I love orange/coral lip products
- I like to keep pink lipsticks and never use them
- I enjoy products in crayon form
- I wear sheer lip products more often 
- I prefer minty or unscented formulas
- I never wear anything with shimmer or glitter
- I prefer glossy or satin finishes over matte ones

Some press samples, giveaway prizes won, gifts, and products that I've purchased on my own featured.
