Too Many Lipsticks for one Holiday?

Hello there,

I recently went on holiday to North East Scotland and one of the most serious questions I asked myself when packing was how many lipsticks are too many for a week long holiday. If I asked my family they'd have said I didn't need make up...which is just silly talk. I then decided to take a range of colours so that every eventuality was covered.

So I took a couple of nudes, two reds and a pink option. Like I said every base was covered. Starting with the two nudes I picked Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect and MAC Modesty. The reason for two nudes is that they have different tones to them...Bitch Perfect leans more peachy pink and Modesty leans a lot more brown.

I only took one pink lip colour, which was MAC Speak Louder. I bought this lipstick a while back and it wasn't until I started filming my MAC Lipstick collection that I actually swatched it, It's a hard colour to describe colour it is it's a fuschia pink that's getting bright but it's not quite there... if that makes sense.

Then finally the two red picks. I took both of these because I couldn't choose. We have Clinique Poppy Pop, which reminds me of MAC Lady Danger but in more of a creamy formula. I also took the Maybelline Colour Drama pencil in Light It Up too for good measure. 

Seen as though I was away for 7 days, I didn't think 5 lipsticks was too bad. How many lipsticks are too many for one holiday? What do you think?

Lots of Love,


  1. I'm very much a nude lipstick only wearer, but sometimes I like to chop and change and have a couple of other options. I think as long as all bases are covered, you're good. I'm going away for 3 weeks at the end of the month, and I'll start with a couple of nudes, a red and pink (probably, not certain yet). But I'll be shopping whilst away and probably pick up a few more.

  3. I guess it depends how long you're away for but this seems about right for a week :) I love the look of Modesty xx

  4. I'm so terrible at packing make up - I end up packing more make up than clothes!!! I'd have taken a daytime and an evening lippie for every day hahaha. This post made me feel a lot more normal!!
