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

@jozkid I like to tell young designers โ€œoh, you think kerning is a pain now? You have no idea!โ€ 

 

As much as I like our digital advances, I do missโ€”and refuse to let go ofโ€”some analog things. I really miss working in the darkroom (except reeling negatives). I donโ€™t miss the old typesetting days, though. ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Kerning is a pain now? @WinglessOne

Heaven knows it used to be!

 

I have to admit, I kind of hated photography classes. The creative part was OK, but I don't miss fussing with all the chemicals and praying no one turned on a light in the darkroom. I am still old school when it comes to doing illustrations, though. I like all the different traditional media.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Hi @sprocketta,this is a nice shiny red on you ๐Ÿ™‚  As for selfies, you look good. I think its more about the angle of the camera and I was told to keep your hands, I mean camera,  at the level of your eye. The lens can kind of distort if it's not angeled a certain a way, it depends on type of lens you have.

 

Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks for the tip @Buootiful  Hopefully I can improve with this suggestion!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thatโ€™s a lovely color on you @sprocketta

 

Iโ€™m no selfie pro, but Iโ€™ve found if you hold the camera from above, aiming down at your face, photos tend to be more flattering. And at least for me (since my face is actually a smudge crooked), I look better slightly from the side than straight on. And trust me when I tell you I take LOTS before I post one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@jozkid  I'll try that.  I think I need to be a pretzel to move into all the angles I need to get a good photo.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta@sprocketta

 

Once you mess around and get a couple you like, you'll remember where you should be holding the camera. Muscle memory. Also, soft, even lighting helps. I take mine in the morning in front of a west-facing window with a sheer curtain that helps diffuse the light a little.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Ahhh, yes, @sprocketta, anytime I *do* take a selfie I delete it. Somehow I donโ€™t think I look like how I appear in them๐Ÿค”. No pointers here, just letting you know thatโ€™s a great summer lip! Reminds me of Chanelโ€™s โ€˜Mademoiselleโ€™ coral a few years ago๐Ÿ’„-bright and bold!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@eshoe Thanks!  Any time I take one, then look at the picture, I'm thinking, "Gah!  How did that happen?!"  Deleing photo ensues.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Not just another red @sprocketta; another BEAUTIFUL red on you! Great, bold and lovely pop of colorโฃ๏ธ

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @itsfi  You are a doll.  I like this one, though the applicator is not great.  It's got good pigment for a gloss so I keep it.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Took a few days away from BIC due to my life exploding, but I kept to the challenge for the most part. I'm so excited to see more people are in on the challenge! I've already been tempted to repeat a color, but I'm trying to stay strong. Anyway, here is what I wore the last few days:

 

Day 8: Bite High Pigment Pencil in Corvina

 

Spoiler
IMG_20180809_181945625.jpg

I had to take my cat to the vet for an emergency appointment. She developed a pretty intense limp, and I wanted to make sure she didn't break a bone or anything (she didn't but we're not sure what's causing it). My boyfriend and I went straight from the vet to him dropping me off at work. I was lucky I had Corvina in my makeup bag. I should probably put a different lipstick in there for situations like this, or if I forget to grab one for the day on my way out of the house. I really love this color. Some people don't like the way these wear, but I don't mind it. It's not too drying and stays pretty well. This one leaves a little stain, which I don't mind.

 

 

Day 9: MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in #36

 

Spoiler
IMG_20180810_172140509.jpg

This is the lipstick that began my love affair with lipsticks to begin with. It's the only one I've ever purchased a backup of, I love it that much. I'm sad they discontinued this line/color. It stays really well; it leaves a beautiful stain; it's comfortable. I would seriously wear this for the rest of my life if I only had one to choose. It doesn't show well in this photo, but it is such a beautiful hot pink.

 


Day 10: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig

 

Spoiler
IMG_20180811_205059040_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg

This is pretty glossy for a lipstick so the wear-time isn't amazing, but I like how juicy it looks.

 


Day 11: Sephora Collection LipStories in #21 Pineapple Express

 

Spoiler
IMG_20180813_195718984.jpg

This is a really pretty purple-y rose color that is really comfortable to wear. I would definitely get more of the #lipstories lipsticks if I found the colors more unique. I just feel like I have a lot of the colors in my collection already.

 

Sorry for the spam of days, but I have a feeling as the challenge goes on, I may have trouble posting daily. I'll try to be good about it though1

 

 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I love Fig and Corvina on you! @snoflakefaerie. I had to return Corvina, it was not what I was looking for as a lip crayon but the color was sooo good. I thought it was going to be matte but it was so glossy. Glad you could put it to use ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I hope your cat is a lot better now, too ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@snoflakefaerie All of these are lovely.  Especially Fig.  Pineapple Express is vibrant and brightens you up.  Also I am totally struggling today not to repeat a color because of the outfit I'm wearing and what goes with it.


Sorry to hear about your cat.  Hopefully he/she's okay.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Smashbox fig is so nice on you, @snoflakefaerie, but I hear you on the wear time with satins-it gets annoying having to reapply every hour๐Ÿ™„

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@eshoe yeah, I tend to go for satins that leave a stain because I don't have time to reapply at work very often. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@eshoe I will always put up with the shorter wear time on the satins.  Not a matte fan.  My only exceptions are now the Pat McGrath matte trance lipsticks which I discovered are amazing and the Huda liquid lipstick in Trophy Wife.  Otherwise, no thanks!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Iโ€™d wondered what happened to you @snoflakefaerie!  Your selections look beautiful though. Keep us informed on Miss Kittyโ€™s condition. ๐Ÿ˜ž

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

So many pretty lippies @snoflakefaerie! ๐Ÿ’„Love Smashbox Fig on you; too bad it doesnโ€™t have a longer wear time. I hope things are okay with you cat! ๐Ÿ˜บ

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Face spam...I'll go ahead and post here too on top of the All Or One Challenge thread. ๐Ÿ˜‹
