My week in lipstick series has been such a fun was to keep my own personal weekly diary while bringing that together with my huge love for lipstick. It seems like such a fitting series based on the title of my blog! After receiving so many great comments on my last week in lipstick post I definitely wanted to try to keep this up. This was a fun week for me where I was fairly busy almost every single day.
Monday was probably one of my most relaxed days. That’s usually how my Monday’s have been recently. I spent it by going to the gym in the morning, blogging in the afternoon and then watching the Bachelor with my boyfriend in the evening. I’m honestly obsessed with the Bachelor this season but I definitely was not feeling the episode – the two on one date with Corinne and Taylor just seemed beyond awkward and the haunted house date was painful to watch because of how staged it all was. What did you think about that episode? I would love to hear your comments down below!
I decided to play around with Tootsi from Colourpop. It’s honestly such an amazing colour and I’m surprised I haven’t used it very much before. Tootsi is a cool toned nude lip that’s perfect for the winter months. I still wanted it to feel comfortable throughout the day so I decided to pair it with my Buxom White Russian Lip Creme.
Colourpop Kiddo Sheer Lippie Stix
Tuesday was probably the most exciting day of my whole week. I spent the whole day in downtown Toronto. After spending so much time downtown last year when I was in school I seriously miss spending a day in the big city! I actually had a job interview in the morning – it was both extremely nerve wracking while also being super exciting! In the afternoon I roamed around the city with my boyfriend and had dinner and drinks. In the evening we went to the Raptors game. It was a super exciting game which made for an awesome evening. It was a Christmas present for my boyfriend so I’m glad it turned out to be a great game!
I went for a more sheer lip colour today. I didn’t want anything super bold for my interview. Kiddo is such a great moisturizing and glossy colour! It’s really a great nude shade for an everyday look. I’m super bummed that they discontinued this shade recently. I know it’s because they are releasing the blotted lip. Were any of your favourite colourpop products recently discontinued?
Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment (http://bit.ly/2kBa3LY)*
I spent the morning and afternoon at work. It wasn’t too busy of a shift at work which was both good and bad. It felt like my shift was never going to end! I finished the day off by going to my two favourite classes at the gym. I went to a Newbody workout and stayed for a yoga class after. It was the perfect end to my Wednesday minus the fact that I was pretty hungry during the yoga class. I spent most of the time daydreaming about what food I was going to pick up after the class.
It was fairly early when I woke up so I was not in the mood to put on a lot of makeup in the morning. I basically just slapped on some tinted moisturizer, filled in my brows and put on some lip balm. I really have been loving the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. It has such a great scent and it really helps to moisturize my lips. I have the driest lips ever, they honestly feel as dry as the desert most days. I’ve tried a ton of lip balms and this is really one of my favourites for the winter time.
Pur Lisse Lip Nourisher (http://bit.ly/2jpGbAI)*
I don’t know what happened on Thursday but I just had such a hard time rolling out of bed in the morning. I didn’t start work until 1 which meant that I should have had more than enough time to get ready. Somehow I was still rushing around the house right before I had to leave for work. My shift at work was ridiculously slow. The escalator outside our store was broken which meant that it was pretty difficult for everyone to get to our store. In the evening I went out for dinner with my best friend. She’s been recovering from a bit of an injury lately so it was nice to be able to catch up with her.
Since I spent the morning rushing around I actually forgot to put on any lipstick at home. I was stuck wearing something that I was carrying around in my purse. Luckily though I guess I must have thrown in my Purlisse Lip Nourisher at some point so I decided to wear that throughout the day. This is a really great product to give your lips a boost of hydration without them feeling too sticky. The Lip Nourisher sinks into your lips almost instantly.
Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip – Nonsense (http://bit.ly/2kGWxZB)
On Friday I spent the morning and afternoon helping my mom out with a couple errands she needed to get done. In the evening I took a gym class with my boyfriend. I dragged him to a tai chi/yoga/pilates class. I’m pretty excited that he didn’t completely hate the class because it’s always fun to have someone to go to the gym with. After the gym we ended up going out for dinner, which was great minus the fact that we didn’t have the best service at the restaurant.
I really wanted to wear something fun on my lips. I wasn’t wearing any makeup though so I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t a super bold or intense colour. The colourpop lip gloss formula is amazing so I decided I wanted to wear one of their glosses. I went for Nonsense because it’s basically a clear gloss with a really unique lavender/pink/silver shift to it. It’s such an easy colour to apply quickly and easily throughout the day as well. This is another colour that colourpop is planning to discontinue. I recommend picking it up if you haven’t already it looks great on it’s own but also is such a pretty topper for a lot of different colours!
Maybelline Color Whisper – Lust For Blush (http://amzn.to/2klc1BF)*
I had an early morning shift at work so I didn’t really spend too much time on my makeup. In the afternoon I spent a bit of time working on my blog. During the evening I went out driving with my boyfriend. He’s teaching me how to drive manual and it’s both fun and terrifying at the same time. We went out driving on actual streets this time rather than just in the parking lot we’ve been practicing. I think I did alright other than panicking when there was a car behind us at a light we stopped at. The car ended up stalling a couple times.
I realized that I haven’t worn any of the Color Whisper lippies that I own in a really long time. These have a really nice sheer wash of colour and are great if you want something that you can easily reapply throughout the day. These seem to have been discontinued? I couldn’t find them online easily and they are not listed on the Maybelline website when I did a quick search. I swear I didn’t plan to wear so many discontinued lippies this week!
NYC Intense Lip Color – Brooklyn Brown Stone (http://amzn.to/2kiWTCs)*
My Sunday morning and afternoon was spent at work. It was a fairly busy shift because we had a bunch of promotions ending and we were short staff. In the evening I ended watching some of the Superbowl with my parents and then worked on some social media stuff for my blog. After that I went to a late night movie with my best friend. We have a whole lot of movies that we want to see over the next couple months. We missed seeing Hacksaw Ridge when it originally released so it was a must see for us when we found out that it was back in a theater near us. I don’t know why we constantly see movies where people get injured or die, I left the theater crying. It was a really great movie though, if you haven’t seen it I would definitely check it out!
I honestly just reached into one of my lipstick drawers and decided I was going to wear whatever I pulled out the morning. I have a couple of the NYC Intense Lip Colors and I honestly never wear them anymore. The colours I have just aren’t that intense in pigmentation. This wasn’t too bad since I didn’t want any type of super bold colour for work.
