My Week In Lipsticks #8

My Week In Lipsticks #8

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 it holds me accountable for wearing more lip products.

I had another jam packed week this week since Wednesday was my Birthday! I had a ton of different birthday celebrations and I tried to keep everything fun with all of the lip products I ended up wearing.

Monday – Make Up For Ever Plexi Gloss in 202 * and Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Aquarius

I spent most of Monday morning working on my blog. I really wanted to try to get ahead of my blogging schedule since I had such a busy week ahead of me. I also ended up getting new glasses in the afternoon which was pretty exciting for me since I’ve had the same pair of glasses for quite some time. My boyfriend and I went out for food in the evening. I ordered a lot more food than I actually needed which was totally normal for me haha.

Halfway through the day I received a Colourpop package so I actually changed my lip colour. Originally I was wearing the Makeup Forever lip gloss. This was a really nice colour but I felt like the formula was a little too sticky for my liking. I switched to Colourpop’s Aquarius lip gloss because I had been wanting to try the colour for so long and I couldn’t manage to wait any longer to try it. I was 100% in love with it and I know this is going to be a favourite of mine for a while!

Tuesday – Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius

In the morning I had a meeting for my social media job and then I spent the evening in my retail job. I had a really rough closing shift because nothing seemed to be going right for me. Overall it was a pretty boring day for me.

I had enough time in the morning to put on some basic makeup. I wanted a more natural coloured lipstick so I went for Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius. I love the Ultra Satin formula and I was super excited to give this colour a try. It was a perfect nude shade for me!

Wednesday – Urban Decay Lipstick in Trance (Metallized) *

On Wednesday I celebrated my birthday! It was a really fun day for me because my mom and I went to the L’Oreal warehouse sale in Toronto. I purchased a whole lot of product at a really good price! Most of it was hair care which I feel like I can never have enough of. In the evening I went out for dinner with my family and my boyfriend’s family so it was a really great evening.

I wanted to wear something a little fun since it was my birthday. I went with the Urban Decay metallized shade because I wanted something that would give my lips a bit of a glow while still looking alright while it wore off during dinner. This really has a great formula and was super comfortable while I wore it throughout the day.

Thursday – Blistex Lip Medex *

I had a morning shift at work that was fairly busy. In the evening I had a bunch of family over for another birthday dinner! I honestly love having my birthday because it works out to being a much longer celebration than just a day. I haven’t seen some of my family in a while though so it was nice to catch up and get together with everyone.

I was having some really bad chapped lips on Thursday and I was hoping wearing some intense lip chap would help with my lip. Unfortunately it didn’t fix it and I ended the day looking I got into a fight with someone. My lip was all split. I love this lip product during the winter when I have intensly chapped lips but it didn’t seem to work for me completely this time.

Friday – Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Sunset *

I had a pretty relaxing Friday morning. I spent most of the morning getting some work done. In the afternoon I discovered that someone had tried to break into my dad’s car when he was in downtown Toronto that day. It was pretty crazy that someone tried to break in because he doesn’t really have a fancy car, but they didn’t even do enough damage to actually get into the car. In the evening I went out for a birthday dinner with my friends and then spent the evening after with my boyfriend.

I really was looking for a moisturizing type lip product since my lip still wasn’t 100%. I have a few Clinique Glosswear products but I haven’t actually worn them before. I really liked the formula and found that it wasn’t too sticky or uncomfortable. The colour was really nice and I didn’t think that it overemphasized my lip.

Saturday – Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Playback

On Saturday I slept in a bit more than I probably should have, but I had a later shift at work so I didn’t really need to be up early. After work I ended up going to a local Coffee Culture and I got a bunch of work done for my blog and social media job.

Again my lip wasn’t looking the greatest so I decided I should probably go for a gloss again. I think that the Colourpop Glosses are some of my favourite and they feel super moisturizing and comfortable on the lips throughout the whole day!

Sunday – Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy

On Sunday morning I had a rather relaxing morning again. I had the day off and originally wanted to go to a gym class in the morning but that didn’t end up happening. In the evening I was volunteering at the Ukrainian Community Hall that my family is a part of. It was a busy evening but I haven’t worked there in a while so I forgot how fast paced/fun it is.

I realized that I probably should avoid lip products since my lip wasn’t looking any better. Instead I reapplied the Fresh Lip Serum throughout the day. I swear this is the only thing that 100% makes my lips look better if I have any dryness or cracking. It did help it quite a bit but by the end of the evening it still hadn’t completely healed.

 

Overall I think I had a decent lipstick week. I did feel somewhat limited since I didn’t want to make my lip any worse than it already was. I think I really leaned towards more neutral tones this week. What was your favourite lip product from the past week? I would love to know in the comments below!
