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

NARS Get It On is a beautiful on you @Krysa13! Your eyes, lip and necklace all complement each other so nicely. <3

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Krysa13 The lipstick looks nice, but I'm more focused on your necklace.  You always have the best accessories.

RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

That is a gorgeous shade on you @Krysa13 !

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Krysa13,

"Get It On" is beautiful, but I LOVE your beads!  What are they called?  Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks, @tsavorite! This is unakite, it's a necklace that I made myself Smiley Happy

Day 35: ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Lychee

Wear test at the laundromat. I like the color a lot, but it's feeling chunky between my lips. I used Ulta lip oil under it, so it doesn't feel as horrible as Be-Dazzled. I'm still not sold on it.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Sorry that the lippie isn’t a keeper for you, because this color looks amazing on you @snoflakefaerie!  I hope you can find a dupe for it because you + this color has got to happen again! 💜

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I love the color on you @snoflakefaerie!  Sorry it’s not feeling comfortable, though. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I’ve missed a couple of days while recovering from an allergy attack. Today I made up for lost time by doing some wear tests. I kinda look like I haven’t slept enough because, um, I haven’t. Smiley Very Happy 

 

Wet n Wild MegaLast in Ravin’ Raisin

This is an old tube. I tried it on today to decide if I want to buy a replacement. It’s also the cheapest lipstick in my collection, excluding freebies. I’m pretty sure I’ll buy another Ravin’ Raisin. 
 
Bonus: MAC Lustre in Spice It Up!

Another old tube on my “replace or not” list. This tube’s old enough that it’s losing pigmentation: oils have begun to seep out, so that’s mostly what wound up on my lips. A decade ago, I wore this shade a lot. Almost as often as Rebel. Not sure why it fell out of rotation. It’s a very standard “conventional” brick red, which isn’t a bad thing, and it’d be more pigmented than this if I’d used a new tube. Hmm. 
Another bonus: Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip in Iced Out

I finally did my latest lip primer test: Bite Line & Define on one side of my lips vs. MAC Prep + Prime Lip on the other side. I didn’t use a lip liner, just the primers. Iced Out will absolutely bleed/feather a lot if I don’t use a primer and lip liner with it—and even then, it still feathers a bit. That’s why I do always use it to test lip primers.

Here’s a closeup, taken right after application:

And here’s another closeup, taken an hour and 15 minutes later: 

A87E96A2-AF97-4B40-9EAC-3E7BDE1B919E.jpegYIKES.

I didn’t eat or drink anything during that 1:15. That’s just how Iced Out wears down, with no encouragement. The MAC primer definitely beat the Bite primer in this test: not only did an overlined barrier of the Bite primer fail to stop Iced Out’s need to bleed, it also didn’t keep the color on my bottom lip quite as well as the MAC primer. Notice there’s also some feathering on the MAC side. Like I said, nothing completely contains Iced Out. It’s a real problem child. 
Looking at these photos, I’m glad my eyes and nose aren’t red anymore. Yesterday I looked like I’d been crying and blowing my nose for 2 weeks straight. Hooray for allergies! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne I commented about Iced Out but totally did not see Spice It Up.  This looks fab on you.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne Spice It Up! is so amazing on you! You rock the “unconventional” colors so well, but “regular” ones are fantastic too! Deffo get a new tube. It’s perfect for you. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @alexasteph! Yeah, I think I need another tube of that one—unless I have another brick red that performs better. But MAC solid lipsticks generally perform really well for me. I see a trip to Ulta (or Nordstrom, or my local MAC standalone store) in my very near future. Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

You look amazing in all these lippies @WinglessOne! So disappointing about the wear time of Iced Out! It’s stunning on initial application!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @itsfi! I should ditch Iced Out. I say that each time I apply it. But then I see that beautiful color on my lips and think “no I can’t possibly let this one go!” 

 

I bought Iced Out as part of a set of Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lipsticks. I think I bought it a year ago. The longer I keep Iced Out, the more goopy and clumpy it gets. I could try thinning it out. But considering how much it bleeds, how sticky it is, and how badly it wears, it’s really not worth the effort—no matter how much I love the color. I think Iced Out is finally going in the declutter box. I’ll have to try on the other Be Legendary liquids to see if any of those are salvageable. 

 

Man, this challenge is gutting some of my longtime favorites. But that’s actually not a bad thing. Smiley Happy It’s forcing me to be more rational: “sure, it looks fantastic, but does it perform well?” And that’s how I need to judge lipsticks from now on. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne Iced Out looks lovely on you, but it's tough to keep the ones around in bad formulas.  I happen to love this line but totally admit the quality varies by shade.  I tried Bad Apple over the weekend.  I've tried it twice because I love the shade, but it's just too messy and all over the place.  I just want to say don't give up on the other colors in that set!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @sprocketta! I think some of these (in my set, anyway) are meant to be toppers or bases. But some are pigmented enough to stand on their own. The day I got the set, I played around with art lip looks for an hour. I’d do that again before tossing any of these, but it’d be far less fun now that some lipsticks have turned too goopy. I’ll still try on the others for final verdicts.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

So true @WinglessOne; if the color ppayoff and formula are not working out, it is hard to keep a color around just for the color; especially if you can find a good dupe that performs better. I hope you have or can find a dupe for Iced Out because that blue really is just so stunning on you!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne you are after my 🧜🏽‍♀️💖 with those colors, lady! 😍💄💋

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @mermadelove

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I don’t know how you manage it @WinglessOne, but you make all these funky colored lippies look like a natural shade. I could never pull off a royal blue like you!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Aw, thanks @jozkid! Smiley Happy
