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 pretty fun week in my opinion. I didn’t have as many shifts at work but I still managed to keep myself busy. This week I wore quite a few new or rarely used products so it made for a great week in lipstick.

Monday was a fairly relaxing day for me. I spent most of the morning and afternoon getting some work done and playing around with makeup. In the evening my best friend and I went out to dinner at Panera and planned out our summer trip to Chicago. I’ve really been wanting to travel a lot more so I’m really excited about this!
If you read my post last week you would know that I was having an issue with my lip. It was still split and looking a little rough. I decided to wear a darker shade on my lip so it would cover up all of that. The ultra metallic lips are a weird formula and I go through phases where I love it and hate it. I really enjoyed the formula though but the applicator was a hot mess to try to get it to apply properly.
Tuesday – NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair
I slept in on Tuesday morning and worked an afternoon/evening shift. It was a pretty slow shift at work so it made for a long day. After work I helped my boyfriend work on his resume. We both have been applying to a ton of jobs lately so we wanted to make sure that his resume was looking good.
I wanted a really simple makeup look so I went for a natural looking gloss. I haven’t worn the NYX butter glosses in such a long time so I thought today would be a great day to wear one. They have a really nice formula and they aren’t overly sticky. I really love this colour and I think it’s great for a natural look on its own!
Wednesday morning and afternoon was spent in Toronto. My dad is retiring from his current job in the next week so the company he works for threw him a retirement lunch. It was really nice to see how appreciated he was and how everyone was upset that he was leaving. In the evening my boyfriend and I went to the movies to see Beauty and The Beast. It’s such a wonderful movie so you should definitely go out and see it if you haven’t already!
I wanted something a little bold for my lip colour since I was dressed up for the lunch. I adore just about any Maybelline lipstick but the Inti-Matte Nudes are probably my favourite so far! This colour is really deep but still a little understated since it’s a nude. They have such great staying power and lasted for majority of the day. I only had to retouch the colour before I went to the movies in the evening.
Thursday – Laqa & Co Lip Lube in Menatour
Thursday was a pretty lazy day for me. I was feeling a little under the weather so I spent a decent amount of time lounging around in bed. In the evening I was able to get some work done on my blog and with my social media clients.
I went for a super simple makeup look since I wasn’t feeling the greatest. But I wanted wear something a little fun and bold for my lip colour. I haven’t worn a purple toned lip in a long time so I thought this would be a wonderful option. I received this a long time ago in a Birchbox and I really haven’t worn it much since.
Friday – Pacifica Power of Love Natural Lipstick in Nudie Red
I had a full shift at work on Friday. In the evening my best friend and I went to see the movie Logan. I didn’t mind the movie but there was definitely parts of it that I wasn’t into.
I realized that I haven’t worn the Pacifica lipstick before. It’s a really nice shade and had a nice finish. This is marketed as a natural lipstick but I could not handle the scent of this. It disappeared after a short amount of time but it was pretty strong when I first put it on. I received this in an Ipsy bag a while ago and from what I can tell this seems to have been exclusive to Ipsy.
Saturday – Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Aqaurius 2
I had a super productive day on Saturday. I scheduled a lot of social media posts for the clients that I have and I revamped most of my blog. There has been a lot of issues with comments on my blog so I finally decided to bite the bullet and change to a premium theme. I love how it’s looking so far but it’s still a work in progress. Let me know what you think about it in the comments! After getting all of my work done I ended up hanging out with a few friends and going out to a local bar. We haven’t gone out in a while and enjoy spending the night dancing away.
I honestly struggled with what lip colour to wear. I decided to go with Aquarius 2 since I haven’t worn it yet and I wanted something that would be easy to wear. The Ultra Mattes have such a great long-wearing formula. I love how the colour looked on me, it’s a great lighter nude shade.
I spent most of my Sunday at work. I had a full shift and then a longer work meeting after. After our work meeting a few of my coworkers when out to a restaurant at the mall to grab some dinner and drinks. It’s always nice to be able to hang out in a relaxed setting with everyone.
I was trying to bring on the spring vibes with my lip colour. It was a really nice sunny and warmer day so I really wanted a fun colour for that. I really love Maybelline lipsticks but I find the rebel bloom line is a little sheer and I should have worn a lip liner under this. I love the colour though! It’s probably my favourite shade from the line.
Are any of the shades that I wore some of your favourites? I would love to hear in the comments below! Let me know what your favourite lipstick was this past week!
