Every week I love playing around with new makeup products. My biggest addiction is lipstick products. I have way more products than I could ever need. Recently I’ve decided that I need to try to get out of my comfort zone and wear more products on a regular basis. Keeping a weekly lip diary has been a really fun way to keep track of everything and holds me accountable for wearing more products.
I didn’t have the most exciting week but I definitely tried to keep busy. I mostly spent time on my blog and worked a decent amount. This week I actually had a lot of fun with lip products though. I wore a lot of products that I haven’t tried before or haven’t worn in a while.
I also included swatches at the bottom of this post. Let me know what you think of them in the comments below!

Wet N Wild – 902C Bare It All
My monday’s are always spent working on my blog. I also managed to fit in a gym class in the morning. I had a great workout and really felt energized after which was exactly what I was hoping for. In the evening I watched the Bachelor, as always. I don’t think I’m emotionally ready for the next episode after the way that Nick had a breakdown. I was definitely not prepared for him to send so many ladies home! What did you think of the last episode?
I haven’t actually worn this Wet N Wild shade before. It was sitting in my drawer with the seal still on it. I decided it was about time to try it on. It has a really great comfortable matte finish. The colour is perfect for a bit of a bolder nude lip.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss – Pure Peach
I had quite a busy Tuesday this week. In the morning I went out for breakfast with my mom and we had some errands to run after that. I spent my afternoon working on a little bit of my blog and social media stuff. In the evening my boyfriend and I went to the gym and we ended the evening going to all you can eat sushi. Probably not the best idea after the gym but at least we didn’t grab fast food or something super unhealthy.
I didn’t wear any makeup today, but I received a shipment from Sephora and one of the points perks I redeemed was the Peach Oil Lip Gloss. I have been wanting to try them since they released but I just couldn’t get past the price point. This was a great way to try it out and I’m addicted now. I might have to pick up another one in a different shade. This has a really light colour to it but it feels super hydrating and the scent is perfect. It smells identical to the other peach collection products.
Colourpop Lippie Pencil – Taurus
Maybelline Matte – 696 Burgundy Blush
I had an early morning shift on Wednesday so I didn’t actually remember to put any lipstick on in the morning. In the evening I played around with makeup so I went a little out of my comfort zone when it came to both eyeshadow and lipstick. After that I had a few errands to run and the rest of my evening was spent working on my blog.
I was watching KathleenLights recent Sephora and Ulta Haul and I was in love with the lip colour she was wearing (J.Cat Lipfinity Liquid Lipsticks in Wandering Eyes). It was a deep brown colour and I was really trying to achieve that colour today. I don’t think I really managed to find anything that looked like it in my collection and mixing together colours didn’t really hit it spot on. But I really liked the colour that I ended up with. It was a deep plum brown colour that I achieved by mixing Taurus and Burgundy Blush.
Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss – Fig
I had a pretty unproductive Thursday. Most of my morning was spent laying in bed and relaxing. I needed a day just to relax though so it was well needed. After breakfast I ran a couple errands with my mom and went shopping a bit in the afternoon with her. I went into the drugstore and was so tempted to buy more makeup but I resisted and felt so proud of myself! In the evening I hung out with my boyfriend and we spent some time just watching TV.
Since I had such a lazy day on Thursday that I didn’t have any makeup on. I did receive my Boxycharm halfway through the day. In the box I was given the Juice Beauty Gloss so I figured I would give it a try. I really enjoyed this and it felt super moisturizing on my lips. The colour did wear down pretty quickly so I had to reapply it a couple times throughout the evening.
Pur Lip Lure Hydrating Lip Lacquer – Graceful
I had a mid shift at work so I had a decent amount of time to apply makeup in the morning. In the evening I went to see Hidden Figures with my best friend and I was in love with it! It was a really interesting movie and I totally left the theater crying and feeling emotional. Which shouldn’t surprise me because every movie I’ve seen lately has somehow caused me to cry.
I received the Pur Lip Lure in a past Boxycharm I believe. It’s another lip product that I haven’t actually used before. I was pleasantly surprised by it. It wore pretty well throughout the day. I really loved the colour and I think it’s perfect for a shift at work.
Colourpop Ultra Satin – Littlestitious
I started working later in the afternoon but I wasn’t feeling that great so I spent most of the morning just laying in bed. After my shift at work I decided to go to Shoppers Drug Mart and cash in all of my Optimum points. I’m currently on a makeup buying system – I have to use up a specific amount of products before I can buy anything new. There’s been a lot of new makeup releases and I’ve been wanting to purchase some of them but just couldn’t. But I broke that a little but and I purchased a whole lot of product with my Optimum points. I only had to pay for the taxes though which was super exciting so I don’t really want to count it as cheating!
I decided that I really wanted to wear a Colourpop Ultra Satin lippie. Littlestitious was my choice for the day because I wanted something light in colour. I completely forgot that this colour changes on me throughout the day. It goes from a super light cool toned colour to a more rosey pink throughout the day. Does this happen with any Colourpop products for you?
Buxom Full On Lip Creme – Berry Blast
I worked in the morning on Sunday. We had a HUGE snowstorm so the mall was completely dead. This meant that both my boyfriend and I were able to leave work a lot earlier than we were expecting. We also were supposed to have a gift exchange and dinner with all of my coworkers, but that had to be rescheduled because of the storm. I ended up hanging out with my boyfriend in the evening. We went out for sushi again and then watched the Grammys. What did you think of the Grammys this year? I don’t know if I was super excited by any of the performances and the whole awards show definitely fell flat for me.
