My Week in Lipsticks | Week 1

This is a new blog series that I am hoping to do on a regular basis. I have seen a few variations of this floating around so I am starting my version of it as I thought it was a cute idea so wanted to give it a go. The challenge will be getting a photo every day with my lipstick on before I race out the door. Fingers crossed!

Monday

Maybelline Vivid Matte in  45 – Possesed Plum

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Possessed Plum

Monday for me means back to routine. Organising the kids, making lunches and getting them to school and me to work. But the weather was overcast, drizzling with rain and cold so I reached for this Possesed Plum colour from Maybelline.  I love the formula of these lipsticks and the colour was perfect for the winter vibe I was feeling. I can not survive without a lip liner so I teamed this baby up with my Mac Burgandy lip liner, the perfect combo. These lipsticks do need touching up during the day, but the formula is worth it.

Tuesday

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen

The sun is shinning this morning. YAY! Work again for me today. I was awake at 4.00 as my hubby was up getting ready for work due to this week being a shut down and long hours for him. So that was the end of my sleep. It is still cold so I am loving the dark colours. Today was NYX soft matte lip cream in Copenhagen. Not sure how I feel about this one. It is a little patchy to apply, (I think it looks a little patchy in the photo too) but it feels nice on the lips and is comfortable to wear. (end of day update:  I actually felt quite self conscious all day with this one due to the patchy look of it. Not sure I would use this again)

Wednesday

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Conspiracy

Wednesday is normally my day off, but today I needed to go into work for the morning. This lipstick is on my wishlist as I don’t own it as yet but I do have a sample of it. It is my favourite colour at the moment so I will be buying it when my sample runs out. The pictures above don’t really do it justice as it is more of a metallic like finish and runs more brown than plum. My natural lighting just wasn’t the best today. I think I need to invest in a ring light on a stand to give me more consistent lighting. If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Thursday

NYX Liquid Suede in Sandstorm

This week is a pretty boring one really. I am off to work again, but the count down is on as school holidays are just around the corner! It was wear PJ’s day at school but I chickened out as I thought it wasn’t really office attire. Some of the teachers and students had fun wearing theirs though and it was all for a good cause.

Today I went a little out of my comfort zone with a lipstick a little more cool toned than I would normally wear. The colour is Sandstorm from the Nyx Liquid Suede range.  This is the only colour I have from this range as they are hard to get. I am still a little unsure of the texture of this as it feels, well, sticky is probably the best way to describe it. It is a little like it hasn’t set yet. I do like the colour even though its probably not the best colour on me as it tends to wash me out a little, but it was nice for a change. The lipstick lasted well through the day, but I couldn’t wait to get it off when I got home, as I didn’t enjoy the feel and texture. I think I will stick to the Lingerie range in future.

Friday

Emily Wilson Cosmetics Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Unbutton

Yay its Friday!!! Who else loves Friday? I am working again today, my house is crazy messy and needs a little love but I just keep telling myself the holidays are coming. Tonight is my youngest son’s AFL game so I am looking forward to that.

I received in the mail my Emily Wilson Cosmetics order yesterday so I needed to try one of these lipsticks today. I have said it before but I am going to say it again, I am in love with these lipsticks! The formula on these are amazing, hang on just let me say it again…….AMAZING!! They are so comfortable to wear (Velvet is the perfect name), dry to a nice matte finish, the colours are not patchy and they last all day. Everything I want in a lipstick! I even had compliments today on this colour. I highly recommend these!

  1. Clever! I liked how you kept the same eyeshadows throughout the week. I am currently doing a personal challenge of sticking to the same eyeshadows/colours for 2 months and blogging about it. I hope you can check out my Make up your mind Part 1 and Part 2 of my personal challenge posted so far and let me know what you think.

  2. What a great idea for a post, Michelle. I love Wednesday the most. Such a lovely colour. I also liked the fact that you threw in some infos about your day. The Liquid Suede are not my favs either.
    Lots of love, Desi (stunnydesi_loves on IG)

  3. Enjoyed that read.. I am not a fan of the liquid suede either, lingerie formula is much nicer, love the maybelline matte and nyx soft mattes too.. I don’t have a dark nyx soft matte, I’ve not experienced patchy with my nudes. But I have with my butter gloss lippy by nyx
