100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Hi BIC!

 

A lot of us have talked about our huge lipstick collections, and with the passing of another National Lipstick Day, I took stock of mine. I have about 200 lipsticks and glosses and realized, I only wear about 20 of them! So I'm challenging myself (and whoever else wants to join) to use more of them. I'm going to try to wear a different lipstick every day for the next 100 days.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I wound up being up way earlier than normal for some reason, so it's two-fer Wednesday 😁

 

First up, I did a somewhat silly little experiment with two of my pH adjusters...LQ Frog Prince vs Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker, applying one to each side of my lips. LQ on your left, PF on your right. This is after somewhere near an hour of wear. I was surprised that side by side, the LQ looks almost as dark as the PF...I've long said LQ doesn't do much on me, and while the PF did get a bit brighter, LQ wasn't nearly as far behind it as I thought it would be. That said, I do still like the PF better...it's a gloss with shimmer in it, and just looks plumper and shinier in my mind, plus the LQ left a few stripes on the outer corner of my lip if you look closely. IMG_20190123_100359642.jpg

 

 

I tried to follow those up with LQ Hello Sailor, but both left such a vivid pink stain that trying to see it was downright impossible...then UPS ran and I got a new goodie that covers the stain way better than I ever imagined it would 😋

 

Kevin Aucoin The Molten Lip Color in Carbon

I knew this was going to be a deep purple, but I was still surprised at just how deep and dark it actually is. This is one thin coat; I was vaguely hopeful I'd be able to sheer it out a bit, but no dice there. Coverage is thankfully even; I had no issues with patchiness or streaks, which can be a problem with the darkest shades. Nearly black isn't exactly my wheelhouse...this is most definitely the darkest shade in my collection, so I'm not sure exactly what to do with this quite yet or how to incorporate into a full look, but I am looking forward to playing some more and expanding my horizons a bit (assuming it wears well...fingers crossed it doesn't bleed or otherwise annoy me lol).IMG_20190123_151236158.jpg

 

 

 

 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Carbon looks great, @RGbrown! I’d say that even if I didn’t have a bias toward black/near-black shades. 🖤 I almost bought this and Bronze, but held off—and now I might have to change my mind. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on how it performed! 

 

About the transformers: The PF is definitely more noticeable, but both look good to me. It’s always interesting to see how these kinds of lipsticks look on different people. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne

The bad news...Carbon is a bleeder Smiley Sad I know that's not nearly as big an objection for you as it is me, but I checked it somewhere around 20-30 minutes after application, and I had little spider legs radiating out from both top and bottom lips. The good news though...it wears down exceptionally well and stays soft so you can smoosh it back around a bit when the center gets lighter.

 

I'm not a fan of bleeders in general, but I'm actually going to keep this for now and try again. I tried to apply a clear lip liner after cleaning up some of the feathering, but that was less than successful (as is normal for me), but I'm going to give it a whirl another day with a primer and/or liner underneath it...I think this shade might be worthwhile enough to live with the extra effort Smiley Very Happy

 

I'm debating going back for Daphne now that I've seen your pic...I ordered Ovid, but passed on any others. Sigh. This thread is horrible for my wallet Smiley Tongue

(I don't think I can get anywhere near enough stuff to make free shipping again though, so hopefully the "want want want" will pass Smiley Tongue )

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown Bleeding is actually what I worried about with Carbon. I tolerate bleeding/feathering only if I can stop it with a liner/primer (which I guess isn’t really tolerating it at all 🤣), or if the feathering’s so minimal it can’t be seen unless you’re standing right in front of me with a magnifying glass. Sounds like this might be a problem child, but maybe not with a black or dark purple liner + some lip primer insurance. Good to know it stays soft; it might be worth the extra effort to stop the bleed. 🙂 

 

And I hear you: I’m tempted to go back to get Eros, which I avoided because I probably (okay, definitely) don’t need another fuchsia. But seeing how my lip color(s) affect Daphne, I can kinda picture how Eros might look on me, and it might be different enough to justify another purchase. I’m also not sure I can meet the shipping minimum this time. But that won’t stop me from trying. 😂 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne

Ah, yeah, I worded that poorly...you're more willing to mess with a liner/primer than I am...any lippie that *requires* two steps is pretty much immediately destashed around here. I am l-a-z-y when it comes to that Smiley Tongue 

RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 43: AERIN x Johanna Cortiz in Cartagena Sunsets. I’m in LOVE with this one! I wanted to try the other collars she did since I tried the first a few months ago and I am not disappointed! Beautiful, bright orange but not too bold, it’s just right! Very comfortable even without balm underneath, due to the moisturizing skincare they have in it. Semi matte finish. I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the desk mirror! Definitely a keeper!

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Yessss girl @SnugglePuggle94 love how you’re pulling off this orange shade! The day has redeemed itself 😂

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@SnugglePuggle94 Love this color on you! Wish I could pull off orange, but the few times I’ve tried everyone keeps asking me if I’m getting sick (the color completely washes out my face LOL) 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 86. Inching closer to the finish line with Givenchy Gloss Interdidt Revelateur in 12 Rouge Thriller. Whoa. Hot stuff. This gloss is gorgeous and looks super sexy. Need to see how it wears though. I really hope this doesn't smear as it seems like it could.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta What a perfect shade of red! Love it!

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @RebeccaBT

RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

So this is a bit of a botched lippie that I wasn’t expecting, and I’m a bit upset that it was this bad so I think I won’t be adding this to the daily challenge but just wanted to show you all. Huda Beauty Holiday Contour and Strobe Lip Set In Heartbreaker and Shameless. First the lip liner started off streaky which took a few tries to get my whole lips good enough and covered. Then the liquid lip was WAY too liquidy and applied horribly, smearing and hard to apply well to look good- and completely ruined my Cupid’s bow and outline of my top lip I had worked on with the liner. And when I tried to clean the smeared edges up they just smeared red stains everywhere. Ugh. Best part was probably the strobe gloss-very pretty, mostly pink sparkle but dries down so you don’t see much unless under a flash light. And then to add even more fun, I dropped the liquid lip with it OPEN and it got on my brand new shirt! Ugh. I dabbed a makeup wipe on it and then stood at the work sink dabbing soap on it then rubbing the shirt together to get it out. I got most of it out and I bet the rest will with some stain remover when I get home later. So far- not impressed and I don’t think this is worth the money right now. Not sure if I want to try again later either and I don’t know if I want to waste most of the 25 bucks just to keep the strobe gloss as well. I’m almost out of my return window so I have to decide fast. And after I post this I’m immediately taking it off LOL. I will do my daily one in a bit ✌️

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@SnugglePuggle94 omg nooooo I’m so sorry it ended up like this!! Definitely a return - there are so many other products that you don’t have to work nearly as hard for to get it to work. I have one Huda lip product, which is a lip strobe. I picked it up in a SF set. While I do like the effect it has, not sure I’d purchase it on its own. Do you find the tube was actually full? Mine looked full but a few Swipes around the tube and you can tell it’s fairly empty 😒 sorry Huda but thank u, next 💁🏽‍♀️

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Oh my @SnugglePuggle94  Not clean edges at all.  I'm sorry it was such a disappointment.  I have a similar set from last year with Trophy Wife and Shameless and never had an issue with it.  I have, however, read that Huda liquid lipstick quality is different in some sets than the regular full size.  Either way, I'm sorry you were left unhappy.

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta Yeah I'm not happy with it. I couldn't get any clean edges and it just smears when I tried to use my LASHFOOD - Chamomile Makeup Eraser Penon it which usually works fine with most lipsticks so I gave up after wiping a bit with my finger. 

 

 I'm not sure if I knew this when I bought it in December but Huda has a bit of a scandal going on with copying/stealing beauty products from Beauty Bakery so I'm not sure I want to support a company that does that either, no matter how much I like the strobe gloss. 

 

I think it's best I return it and use my money on something else like ColourPop or Givenchy. 

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@SnugglePuggle94 It’s really Beauty Bakerie’s overall bakery/food/sweets theme that Huda seems to have copied for some of their products. A friend asked me about it last month, knowing I usually ignore beauty gossip/drama/whatever—but this one’s such an obvious case... I mean, I was browsing upcoming release content online one day and came across Huda’s kitchen/bakery themed promo photos, and immediately thought “oh hi there, Beauty Bakerie imposter!” Smiley Very Happy I know a few folks who are done with Huda over this, and I respect anyone’s personal choice to boycott brands for reasons like this. 

 

Whether or not you boycott the brand, I’d definitely boycott that lip set! That’s really too bad because the resulting ruby color is gorgeous on you. The only way I’ve found to stop chronic bleeders like that is to use both a lip liner and a perimeter of lip primer as a barrier. And even then, some glosses will still feather or bleed. Smiley Sad Hope you find something better to replace this with. 

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne That's what it was, the bakery sweets theme. I couldn't remember at the time lol. But yeah I think that's not cool and Huda will not be receiving anymore of my business.

 

I think I might just look for a nice ruby color to replace this set with then! It is pretty I'll give it that!
