I had seen other blogs do a "What's in my bag" post and thought it would be fun to do. So I had a look and was a bit surprised with my cosmetics was Barbie's make up bag!

I owned about 879 pink lip glosses!!! I know pinks and berries look nicer on me than other colours, but I didnt realise how much of a rut I was in.

So here is my "Barbie" cosmetics bag (actually its a Bert's Bees bag)...

*Lady Jane Bobby Pins
*Almay Truly Lasting Colour Pressed Powder
*Pink Travalo Refillable Perfume Spray (I have JLo's "Glow" in my spray)
*Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream
*Bloom Powder Brush (this is supposed to be a double ended brush with a concealer brush, but it fell off, so i use this as a travel one)
*Natio Paw Paw Lip Balm
*Lanolips Lemonaid 
*Bonnebell Lip Care in "Mixed Berries" (a pink lip balm!)
*Sportsgirl Mini Lipgloss in a pale pink shimmer
*Lancome Mini Juicy Tubes (this is the one we got in our LHI box)
*Australis Lip Gloss in "Juicey" (in my defense it is more purple than pink!)
*Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Balm in "Pink Crystal"
*Burts Bees Lip Balm (yep its goes on pink!)
*Grown "Vanilla and Orange Peel" hand cream
*ModelCo Lip Gloss in "Berry Pink"
*Diva Lip Gloss (its pink!!!)

So, as you can tell I am a pink lipped addict! This week I'll be on the hunt for non pink lipsticks and lip glosses. And next week I will do a 7 week "No Pink Lips" Dare.

Do you have any no pink lip products you think I should try out? Leave a comment and I'll check out the shops on Thursday with your suggestions.


  1. This is such a cool idea. I have a Travalo too but mine is gold:)

    In terms of lippies I think you could pull of a nice red - just ask someone at the counter for assistance (I got mine from Revlon and she did a fab job). Mulberry shades are also gorgeous! Let me know what you find xx

  2. The new Marcel Wanders collection from Mac has 2 nude colour lipsticks....and the packaging is so nice you'd probably want to keep it forever and never use it haha

    I love your blog! It's so good to read an aussie blog.


  3. Great post!
    Hope you will check out my blog & website

    I’m currently selling gorgeous lip balms which are very nicely packaged, with a Swarovski crystal !
    Thanks !

  4. Check out Centrefold by Chi. It's a muted nude so it will give you a completely different look!

  5. I completely forgot to add coral - it would look great on you:) X
