My Week In Lipsticks #11

My Week In Lipsticks #11

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 a jam packed week because my boyfriend and I went to Quebec City and stopped in Ottawa for a night on our way back. I went to University in Ottawa and my best friend still lives there so it was an awesome pit stop. We spent a lot of time in the car over the week but I still tried to play around and switch up my lipstick as much as I could. I ended up bringing 20 different lip options for only 5 days of vacation, so I was definitely prepared to wear different lipsticks.

Monday – Lancome Juicy Shaker in 313 Boom-Meringue

On Monday we spent most of the day in the car. It was about an 8 hour drive for us to get to Quebec City. In the evening we mostly just relaxed and went to a fancy restaurant close to our hotel.

I wasn’t wearing any makeup because we woke up early to get a head start on the drive. I still had the Juicy Shaker in my purse from the previous day so I applied it quite a few times throughout the day. I don’t necessarily think that this is the best product but it is super moisturizing and great for when you don’t need any intense long wearing colour on your lips. (Unfortunately I lost this lip product somehow in the last week. I’ve ripped my whole room apart and I think I must have misplaced it somewhere on my trip. I did write about this last week so if you want a swatch you can check out this post to see it!)

Tuesday – NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Bedtime Flirt

On Tuesday my boyfriend and I went out for brunch at a really nice restaurant and then attempted to walk around the city. We didn’t get very far though because the weather was super rainy and windy. We ended up going to a water park that wasn’t too far of a drive in the evening which was tons of fun! After the water park we were both starving and went to a restaurant close to our hotel again that served amazing pizza.

I tried to wear something a little fun on my lips today. I wanted something that would fade pretty well throughout the day since I was doing a lot of eating and being active. I really enjoy the Lip Lingerie formula. It lasts fairly well throughout the day and is decently comfortable for being a matte liquid lip.

Wednesday – Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Aquarius

On Wednesday my boyfriend and I went to the aquarium in the morning. It was a lot cooler than I expected. They even had an outdoor section with polar bears, walruses, seals and an owl. In the afternoon we went for lunch at super nice restaurant a bit of a walk away from our hotel. This might have been one of my favourite restaurants because they gave you a whole jar of pickles to eat during your meal. After lunch we walked around the city again a little bit and then relaxed a bit in the room. We decided to go out for a late night dessert since I hadn’t had a crepe the whole time I was there. My crepe was huge and delicious and all I could have asked for from a dessert.

I really just wanted a simple and glossy look. I was wearing pretty minimal makeup since I wasn’t in the mood to put a lot on so this was a great colour choice. If you follow my blog you know I’m a huge fan of everything colourpop! Their glossy lips really changed my opinion on lip glosses and helped me to embrace a natural lip look!

Bedtime Flirt, Aquarius, White Russian, Fig, Touch of Spice

Thursday – L’Occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm Stick

My boyfriend and I decided to end our time off in Quebec City in the best way possible. We went to a super yummy poutine restaurant. I was able to create my own poutine which was delicious! After our brunch we started our drive to Ottawa. It took a little bit longer than we were expecting it to. After we arrived in Ottawa we met up with my best friend and did a little bit of bar hopping. It was so nice to catch up and I miss being able to see her all the time.

I really wasn’t in the mood to apply any makeup so I stuck with a lip balm for the day. I received this in a travel size set for christmas this past year and I’m really enjoying it. It’s really moisturizing and helps to keep my lips feeling rather soft.

Friday – Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian

Friday was a holiday so there were not a lot of place open or things to do in Ottawa. We did manage to go to Kettleman’s for brunch. They have really delicious bagel sandwiches and I love going there when I’m in Ottawa. In the afternoon we found out that a mall was open in Quebec so we crossed the river and did a little bit of shopping. After relaxing at my friends house for about an hour after shopping, my boyfriend and I decided to start our journey home. We ended up getting back into town pretty late and I was more than ready to crash in my bed!

I really just wanted a glossy look again for the day so I went with Buxom’s White Russian Lip Cream. This is such a gorgeous product both on its own and on top of a nude lip colour! It has a tingling sensation when you apply it but it’s not too intense or a lot to handle in my opinion.

Saturday – Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Fig

I spent Saturday morning relaxing a bit after my busy vacation. In the afternoon I went to work and I was there fairly late. I really didn’t do much other than work because I was still in vacation mode.

I spent a little more time on my makeup and played around with some fun products. I have had the Bite Beauty lip duo for a little while now and I just never wear it as much as I should. I love both of the shades that are included in this. It’s a really great duo for travel, but I don’t think these colours are sold anymore. You can still purchase the colours on their own though and I think they are worth it!

Sunday – MAYBELLINE CREAMY MATTES LIP COLOR in Touch Of Spice

On Sunday we had my boyfriend and grandfather over for dinner. It’s always nice to get together and spend the holidays together. It was Easter Sunday so we had a really great meal! In the evening I went to the movies to see the Fate of the Furious. It was a lot better than I was expecting it to be!

I haven’t worn Touch Of Spice in quite some time but I think it’s probably my favourite lip shade of all time! I honestly used to wear this every single day and I need to pull it out more often! If you had to choose, what is your favourite lip colour?

I had a really fun week with my vacation! I really don’t know why I brought so many crazy lip colours because I usually just wear a basic nude lip most of the time haha. Did you do anything fun this past week? I would love to hear about it in the comments below!

    Great post and love the lip shades♡

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      Thank so much!

  • I have that exactly NYX one. I love the color and how it comes out matte. I have to put a little balm under it though or it feels too dry to me.

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      I really have to exfoliate my lips before wearing it or else it’s not completely comfortable! But the colour is gorgeous so I always love wearing it!

  • Amanda Appiagyei

    Ooo I love the Bite Beauty one in fig, what a gorgeous colour. I do like NYX ones though.

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      Fig is one of those shades that I forget about all the time, but every time I use it I fall back in love with it!

  • kiki

    I really like the Buxom (I have it in a different shade but it’s close to this one) I like the product a lot. i’m really liking that Aquarius colour,too!

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      I really can’t get enough of the Aquarius shade! It’s been a colour I’ve gravitated to with the start of spring.

  • Can we talk about the Buxom?? I have it in the color Sandy, which is also a very similar nude. I am super obsessed, and I enjoy the tingling feeling. It definitely makes my lips even more plump. I will have to try the White Russian!

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      Yes! I really am loving Buxom lately! I only recently started trying their products but they definitely make my lips look nice and plump! I really want to try more shades so I’ll have to check out Sandy!

    • Stephanie Ehmke

      I can’t get enough of poutine sometimes and this one was perfection! I saw so many people trying it as well that I needed to get my hands on it!

  • I love white russian!! I went through one. I need to order it again!
