My Week in Lipsticks #3

My Week in Lipsticks #3

I really want to try to reintroduce my week in lipstick series. It’s such a great way of getting me to try out new products. You can read my last two posts here.  I had a hard time trying to keep track of the products that I was wearing in December and the beginning of January because I’ve been pretty busy with the holidays and work. But I’m going to try my best to try to keep up with these posts on a more regular basis!

This week was mostly spent working and trying to get back into the routine of blogging. I’ve also been trying to apply to a ton of jobs lately so I’m hoping I’ll hear back from something soon!

I tried to spend most of the week testing out all of the products from the new Sephora Favourites Give Me Some Nude Lip set. I’m planning to post a full review of the products over the next few weeks.

Monday – Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Stepping Out

I didn’t really have any plans for my Monday other than to maybe go to the gym and to work on some things for my blog. I was only planning to have a simple makeup look yet I ended up with a full face of makeup… I swear that happens too often.

I really wanted to wear a nude shade that I usually don’t wear often so I went with this Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick. It was a really comfortable lippie and had really good wear time. It lasted through both my lunch and dinner. I also spent the evening watching the Bachelor? Are you a fan of that show? What have you thought of this season?

Tuesday – Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic

I had to work a morning shift on Tuesday so I really wasn’t in the mood to wear intense makeup. I opted for the Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic because it’s a my lips but better colour. It’s not the most long wearing colour but it fades really nicely, is super comfortable and easy to re-apply. Those are all things that I want for a lip colour that I wear to work.

Wednesday – Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Queen B

I ended up going to a dinner with my mom on Wednesday evening and had plans to go to the gym afterwards. I only wanted to wear a simple makeup look but I somehow ended up going full glam again. I swear that happens why more than I would like it to. I received the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip set today so I wanted to give one of the products a shot. I went with the Too Faced Liquified Matte Lipstick. I knew that the formula would last me all the way through dinner and the colour would be perfect for the event I was going to.

Thursday – Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème in 246 Slow Burn

Today was another one of those days where my simple makeup routine turned full glam. I actually wanted to try out a bunch of the products I received in my ipsy bag so I spent most of my afternoon just playing around with everything. I wanted to try out another one of the lip colours from the Sephora Favourites set. I have loved the two Marc Jacobs Lip Cremes that I tried in the past so I knew this was going to be a favourite of mine.

I really didn’t have any plans on my Thursday other than spending the evening with my boyfriend. We ended up going bowling and it was a lot of fun. There was an older couple in the lane beside us and they totally crushed both of our scores.

Friday – Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian

I had an early morning shift at work again so I actually ended up wearing simple makeup. I didn’t have a ton of time to put on makeup so I just decided to go with a gloss. This has a pretty light pink colour to it that just makes your lips look wet. It was great for a busy day at work since I really didn’t have time to reapply the colour. I also went to the gym in the evening so I really didn’t need any type of bold lip colour.

Saturday – Estée Edit The Barest Contour lip Liner in 05 In The Buff

I had another morning shift at work but I decided I wanted some colour on my lips. I really just wanted something matte that was going to last throughout the day. But I didn’t want anything that was going to dry out my lips. I decided to go with a lip liner because I find they last a long time. This colour is super close to my natural lip colour so I think it’s a perfect lip liner for me.

Sunday – Pur Lisse Daily Lip Nourisher

My Sunday shift at work started a bit later than the last couple days, but I still managed to sleep in and rush on my makeup that morning. I decided to just go for a lip balm because my lips were feeling a little chapped. I also spent the evening hanging out with my cousin and her partner since it was her birthday. We played a few board games so it was a fun evening and the lip balm was great for reapplying quite a few times throughout the day.
