My Week In Lipsticks #6

My Week In Lipsticks #6

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 wore a ton of nude lipsticks this week. I also managed to keep myself fairly busy throughout the week. Tuesday was Valentine’s Day which meant that I played around with lipstick a bit more to get a fun romantic look!

Monday
Maybelline New York Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Naked Coral

I had a ton of outings on Monday – by outings I mean that I went out for food a bunch haha. At lunchtime my friend Diana and I were craving East Side Mario’s so we made a last minute plan to grab some food there. I spent the afternoon working on my blog. In the evening I went out for dinner with Diana again and our friend Caitlin. Monday’s are half priced apps night at a local restaurant. We haven’t gone in a while but it’s always such a great deal for a ton of food! I also watched the Bachelor on Monday. How has Corinne made it so far? Why did the announce the Bachelorette while she’s still on the show? I have so many questions!

I purchased a few of the new Maybelline Matte lipsticks and I’ve been so excited to try them. I found the formula on these ones to be better than some of the previous matte lipsticks. They seem super creamy and they look great on the lips. I really liked this colour, I found it was a really nice my lips but better type of colour!

Tuesday
Colourpop Ultra Matte in Mama

I spent Tuesday morning at work. It wasn’t a super busy shift so it felt like the day was moving so slowly! I spent the evening with my boyfriend. It was both Valentine’s Day and our Anniversary. He made dinner for me which was delicious and we spent the rest of the evening catching up on How To Get Away With Murder. I’m still so upset over how this season is going, I was not ready for the producers to kill off a main character.

I wanted a more romantic and long lasting colour. I love the Colourpop Ultra Mattes because they can make it through just about anything and still look great. I love the colour Mama and I thought it was perfect for a Valentine’s Day look.

Wednesday
Covergirl Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm in Caramel

I had another early morning shift at work. We had a seriously slow day at work again which meant that it felt like my shift was never going to end. I went skiing at a local ski hill with my boyfriend in the evening. We are planning a trip to Mont Tremblant next week and just wanted to make sure that all of the ski equipment would work for me.

My lips were feeling a little bit dry from wearing the Ultra Matte the previous day. I wanted something that had a decent amount of moisture while still having a little bit of colour to it. The Covergirl Lip Balms have such a nice tint to them while still being fairly moisturizing. I don’t think these are the most moisturizing products but I seriously love the scent that they have! It’s got a really nice citrus scent.

Thursday
Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach

I had an interview in downtown Toronto in the morning so I spent a decent amount of time getting ready and driving to that. It went really well and I’m excited that I’m hearing back from some of the jobs that I’ve been applying to. After my interview my mom and I decided to go out for lunch together. We went to a local restaurant that’s one of my favourite places to go to. After that my boyfriend and I went and did some ski clothes shopping. I’ve still been wearing clothes that I bought in highschool and it’s just not fitting me very well anymore. After that my friends and I decided to treat ourselves to a movie and some desserts at Demetres. We saw Fifty Shades Darker and it was exactly the kind of movie I was expecting it to be haha.

I really just wanted a comfortable long lasting lipstick so I went with Laguna Beach from Ofra. I actually thought I lost this but I found it in my ski jacket which I hadn’t worn since last year. It’s a really great nude shade and lasts such a long time without being drying.

Friday
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Trail Blazer

Discontinued Shade

My Friday wasn’t super jam packed. I had a closing shift at work that was busy and spent the rest of the evening after work hanging out with my boyfriend.

I really wasn’t sure what colour I wanted to wear on my lips so I decided to just reach into my nude lipstick drawer and grab something. I was pretty happy with the colour of the gloss. It was a nice lighter nude shade. It was pretty long lasting and and didn’t feel super sticky on my lips. There was a slight tingling sensation as soon as you apply this but it wasn’t anything uncomfortable.

Saturday
L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Colour Riche Le Matte-Lip Pen in She’s So Matte

(http://amzn.to/2mv8yPq) *

I had another opening shift at work which was great. I love working in the morning because it means that I can be a lot more productive after I’m done working. I did a little bit of yoga after work and then spent some time working on my blog. In the evening my boyfriend and I spent a whole lot of time watching say yes to the dress. It’s one of my guilty pleasure tv shows.

I haven’t worn any of the Le Matte products in such a long time. Without realizing it until after I took all of my pictures for this weeks post, this is basically a dupe for the Maybelline Naked Coral lipstick that I wore on Monday. I like the Maybelline formula a lot more than the L’Oreal one. Plus I just don’t enjoy the scent of any L’Oreal lipstick. I’ll probably declutter these soon because it’s just not something I’m going to wear all of the time.

Sunday
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Soft-Spoken

(http://bit.ly/2kCcG3u) *

I had a seriously relaxing Sunday! I spent most of the morning in bed just catching up on social media and watching YouTube videos. I used the L’Oreal colorista dye in soft pink to change up the colour of my hair. It’s a really cool looking product and is supposed to wash out after a few washes. It tinted the ends of my hair a light pink colour and looks really subtle. With all the jobs that I’ve been applying to I didn’t want to go drastic with any hair colour. In the evening I went to Dave & Buster’s with all of my friends. It was seriously busy but we were still about to play a whole bunch of games and eat way more food than we needed to.

I had a pretty fun week and tried out a lot of lip products that I don’t usually wear. What lip products have you been loving lately? I would love to find out if they are similar to any of the ones that I’ve been loving lately!

      Thanks so much! I’ve really wanted to try out some of the Jouer products!

  • This is such an amazing idea for a blog post! I should totally do this to force myself to use more of my lipstick collection rather than always relying on my tried and true favs. Great post!
