Well, you know you have enough lipstick when you can easily go a month of wearing a different one every day without running out of options. Granted a couple of these aren’t my favourite on me (I’m looking at you MAC) but I made it.
Swatches are in order from left to right (i.e. last Wednesdays is on the far left).
Wednesday – No7 Moisture Drench in 55 Pink Crush. This is so easy to wear and comfortable on the lips in cold weather. Love it!
Thursday – NYX Jupiter. Slightly too frosty for me but a fun bright pink nonetheless.
Friday – Clinique Spiced Apple. I love this on but for some reason never reach for it. I think it’s the sickly green tube that puts me off. Shallow but hell, this is a blog about makeup.
Saturday – Estee Lauder Fig. Wow that is some craptacular application right there. Gorgeous deep dark red, vampy and very season appropriate.
Sunday – 17 Peace. It goes on pinker on the lips than it looks in the tube and is surprisingly subtle.
Revlon Colour Burst in Carnation - Again a gorgeous pink but I could have lived without the shimmer.
MAC Lazy Day lipstick (from the To The Beach collection) – This looks awful on me so I always wear a pigmented gloss over it. I love the colour but my lips are too dark to carry it off on its own as you can see here.
L’Oreal Taffeta – A deeper nude so more wearable on me. It is rather cool toned though so again I like layering it with gloss for a more wearable finish.
You can tell from looking at the tubes that these aren’t my most worn colours but there are some gems in there that deserve more love than they have had. And now I’m done with this project I just need to avoid falling back into the trap of grabbing the same few lippies! x
