A few months back I read a blog post on The Makeup Directory that was My Week in Lipsticks. I really enjoyed how Sally documented which lipsticks she used that week and a little insight on each colour and why she chose it. I decided that I wanted to start this as a way of keeping track of the colours I love most but also as a way of trying different products that might go unloved in my collection. I want to try to post my own week in lipstick as much as I possibly can.
This week was a fairly relaxed week for me. It’s the first week since I’ve been done school that I don’t have every day completely jam packed. I had a makeup free day on Monday since I spent the day lounging around and having some family over for a holiday dinner for Labour Day.
Tuesday: NYX Lipliner in Mauve and Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in Finder’s Keepers
I had a bunch of running around to do today and I went out for dinner with a friend. I really wanted a simple lip colour that would look alright as it faded with dinner. I’ve really been loving pairing these two products together, they both have a similar purpley-pink vibe to them. The lipliner is super long lasting. I’m not a huge fan of glosses but I find the Colourpop glosses to be super comfortable and feel almost like a regular lipstick.
Wednesday: L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in Rose Elixir
I had an early morning shift at work today so I was aiming for a simple lip product. I don’t usually like wearing anything bold to work. I chose the Colour Riche Lip Balm. I find this to be a really subtle colour and super comfortable on the lips. It’s also really easy to apply since it’s close enough to my natural lip colour. I don’t need a mirror to apply it which is exactly what I like for work.
Thursday: Tartiest Lip Paint in TBT
I didn’t have a lot of plans for today other than last minute I went out for lunch with a friend. I went with super minimal makeup since I found out about lunch last minute, but I still wanted a bit of a bolder lip. I love the formula of the Tartiest Lip Paints, it’s a bit of a moussey and creamy consistency which makes it super comfortable on the lips. I also love the colour, it’s definitely my go to colour for fall.
Friday: Jersey Shore Sun Lip Conditioner in Vanilla Coconut
I had a long shift at work today and my lips were feeling fairly chapped so I decided to just go with a regular balm today. I have chronic dry lips, no matter how much I exfoliate or how much lip balm I put on they never seem to stop being dry and flakey. This product helped my lips temporarily but it didn’t seem to have any long term benefits that I noticed. I just received this in a recent Ipsy bag which you can read about here.
Saturday: Maybelline Color Jolt in Stripped Down
I had another simple day of working today but I also had plans to go to the movies with a friend after work. I wanted to wear something with a little bit of colour, that would fade nicely throughout the day and still be comfortable. I’ve been enjoying the Color Jolts a lot more than I was expecting to. I find they give you a great wash of colour while still being comfortable. They remind me a lot of the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks. This specific colour is also very close to the natural pigment of my lips so it’s a great your lips but better kind of colour.
I hope you like these kinds of posts. Let me know if you want this to be a regular series on my blog!
