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 super productive week but pretty boring in terms of blogging about it. I did get a lot of TV watching done this week! When it comes to lip colours I used a few favourites and a couple new products. Keep reading to find out exactly what I was up to this week and what lip colour I was wearing!

Monday – Bite Beauty Multistick in Papaya
I really didn’t get much done on Monday other than go to work. I had a fairly slow day at work but lots of things were changing in our store so we spent a decent amount of time working on that. After work I watched a bit of Netflix. I caught up on Riverdale and started 13 Reasons Why. I loved the book when I read it a long time ago so I was really excited to watch the show. I only watched the first episode but it definitely caught my attention! What are some of your favourite tv shows right now?
I opened this sample of the Bite Beauty Multistick a few weeks ago so I wanted to try to get more use out of it before it completely dries up. I was heavier on the exfoliation this time I wore it and I think that made a huge difference! This was a whole lot more comfortable and looked nicer than it did before!
Tuesday – Nivea Sun Soleil Lip Balm SPF 30
I had a morning shift at work that was super slow. Like so slow that I probably could have closed the store down and no one would have noticed. But I didn’t do that even though I totally wanted to. In the evening I had some family over for dinner which was nice. My Aunt and Uncle were there who I haven’t seen in quite some time.
I actually forgot to put any lipstick on Tuesday! I was originally planning to wear a Nudestix product but I left it on my bed when I went to work and just forgot to put it on after. It wasn’t too bad though because I felt like my lips needed some extra moisture and a break from drying lipsticks so sticking to a lip balm all day was ideal.
Wednesday – MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick in 211 and Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer
I had a fairly lazy morning and really wasn’t as productive as I would have wanted to be. In the evening I went out for dinner with one of my dad’s coworkers, my family and my boyfriend’s family. It was my dad’s official last day at work so we were out celebrating! In the evening I was actually super productive. I worked on some blog stuff and decorated my planner a lot, which I haven’t done in a while!
I ended up wearing the Makeup Forever lipstick that I received as a free sample from sephora a while ago. After putting it on I realized that it was a little too shiny of a lipstick and I wished I was wearing something with a matte finish. I usually always forget about the Smashbox transformer so I thought this would be a good time to wear it. I loved the colour of this and the transformer gave it the perfect finish that I was looking for!
On Thursday morning I spent a whole lot of time playing around with makeup. I ended up with a pretty bold eye look that I was inspired to do based on a recent Jaclyn Hill video. I also dyed my mom’s hair because she was complaining that her roots were growing in and her greys were starting to show. I went out for dinner with my mom and a few family friends. After dinner I was super productive and got a lot of work done. My boyfriend and I are going away for a few days and I wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t have to worry about anything when I was on vacation.
I’ve also heard Jaclyn Hill talk a lot about wearing bow and arrow lately so I figured I should bust that out because I thought it looked amazing on her! I loved how it looked and the formula was fairly long lasting. I tried a different shade of the Kat Von D lipstick a few weeks ago and I found that the formula wasn’t that great. This one was a pleasant surprise because it worked way better for me.
Friday was a pretty uneventful day. I slept in a little bit and worked in the evening. After work I relaxed and caught up with a few shows – Big Brother Canada and Are You The One: Second Chances. I’ve been really enjoying both of these so far!
One of my best friends gave me a wonderful goodie bag of nyx products for my birthday. I really love the NYX Lip Lingerie products and I found this had a really nice colour to it! It wore so well throughout the day and still looked solid by the end of the evening!
I woke up pretty early on Saturday morning for absolutely no reason. This ended up being great because I actually had a productive morning and afternoon working on my blog. In the evening I hung out with my boyfriend. We both had been craving Dairy Queen for quite some time so we finally planned to go!
I was in the mood for something nude and matte – surprised? probably not because that’s all I ever end up wearing haha. I really like the Smashbox liquid lips but you 100% have to exfoliate a bunch before applying this. It brings attention to any dry patch you might not even realize you have on your lip.
I had a morning shift on Sunday. Nothing super eventful happened at work. In the evening I went to see Power Rangers with my best friend. We both were pretty excited to see the movie and it was amazing! I recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet. After the movies I was up pretty late packing and trying to get everything in order. My boyfriend and I were leaving the next day for a vacation to Quebec City! I clearly left everything until the last minute so I had a lot of work to do with that.
I really wasn’t looking for something spectacular when it came to my lip colour. The juicy shakers are nice but they really aren’t long lasting at all. Luckily this is a pretty sheer colour which makes it easy to apply a bunch of times throughout the day. After all of the drying lip colours I was wearing this week I knew I needed something a little more moisturizing.
