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.

@faeriegirl @alexasteph 

Thanks so much, ladies! Smiley Very Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown  Not sheer at all! Very nice color regardless. 

RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 3. Every morning and night I use the transparent grande lip plumper.Typically in the morning I wipe off the excess after 20 minutes then puton whatever color or balm I settled on for the day. I bought that Grande lips set that included two non translucent ones. And today I’m testingthe Cranberry Crush one. The transfer is real. I’m not sure how long I’m going to last before wiping it off and putting on another red. Update: After 5 hours I couldn’t deal and finally took it off. Over the time it slowly became more and more pink. I added a couple photos. The last is when it was a smear and I have up. This is why I avoid glossy stuff.

Re: RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

They both look very nice @Weetart 

Re: RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Weetart Looks like it left a pretty pink stain as it wore down. But I know what you mean about glosses wearing away too quickly. 

 

I feel obligated to mention my favorite line of glosses, Lancôme’s L’Absolu Lacquers, because of their fantastic staying power. They don’t behave like liquid mattes, of course, but they outperform (in every way) every other lip gloss I’ve ever tried. They’re not lip plumpers, though. 

Re: RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Ooh. I’m never tried those. I’ll have to give one a go.

Re: RE: Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Both colors look great @Weetart!

I love both shades @Weetart ❤️

I love both shades @Weetart ❤️

RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

So I’m here for day 27? Maybe? 🤷🏾‍♀️ 🤔🙄 Anyway, this is Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Metal in Space Case with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Cuff. Interesting. I’ll probably put a top coat of something soft over it, but overall I totally stretched out of my comfort zone with this one. My daughter liked it and said I looked like the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz - complete with robot-like movements. 🤣 I really love my child. What can I say? We’re both nuts to our families. We just don’t conform. Speaking of that, check out my twists. I’m surprised they didn’t tell me at work not to come in until I fixed my hair. I love it. At least I’m not running around here looking like Albert Einstein anymore. 🤣

your hair is cute like this @divaknits awesome shade!

Re: your hair is cute like this @divaknits awesome shade!

@lmaster Thanks! Glad you like them. 

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I think your twists are adorable! Very pretty look. I love the tin man comment lol! Kids are awesome! The color is fun and works on you.

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @Weetart! The more I look at this color the more I think I may like it. The formula has hella transfer, but since it’s not supposed to since it’a a liquid metal. It met my fiancé’s seal of approval. 😳 As for my twists, there are people who get penalized for the way they wear there hair. I’ve heard many stories - braids, dreads, twists, Bantu knots, you name it. I know some people get in trouble for color. Hair is a way of expressing yourself. I got hired at my new job  with my wild Afro. I’ll be in twists and one of my more sedate (blue, orange, purple? Nah maybe I need to work my way up to those. 🤣) But who knows? My manager has a nose ring and platinum hair.

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

It's terrible! I've heard stories of people getting in trouble because of their hair too. I'm glad your workplace encourages individuality.

Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@divaknits I actually like that lipstick on you! Also love your twists! Anyone who tells you to fix your hair while you’re wearing those twists deserves some serious side eye, at a minimum. 

 

When I was transitioning from relaxer to natural, I never big-chopped (wasn’t willing to sacrifice my shoulder length hair, despite damaged ends) and usually kept my hair in twist-outs and braid-outs. I don’t remember how long it took my natural regrowth to reach my shoulders, but I do remember cutting my ends once a month until finally there were no relaxed ends left. Twists helped me see exactly where I needed to cut. 😂 That was 15 years ago. It’s a memory your twists just brought back to me. Smiley Happy

RE: Re: RE: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne I big-chopped my hair nearly 20 years ago before growing it back out for dreadlocks. They were down to my bra strap. When they got too heavy for my head when I washed them and a couple fell out I knew it was time to let go. So I BC’d again. My hair grows slowly now so I never get longer hair. It grows, just not as fast as it used to. I’m impressed that you had the perseverance to wait for your hair to grow out. I’m too impatient. 🤣 Thanks by the way. This lippie is actually comfortable, but the transfer is real. The fiancé said absolutely nothing when I picked him up. Guess he’s gotten used to what he’s getting.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 98, lipstick 115: Fenty Mattemoiselle in Turks & Caicos, with an ombré of MAC Liptensity in Stallion. When I saw a promo photo of T&C, I thought “oh, I’ll definitely put that teal to the test” and, well, it’s bolder and brighter than I expected! 😂 Today’s my first wear test and I chose to temper the brightness with a little black ombré at the corners. Feels as comfy as other Mattemoisells so no complaints there.

Edit: Curiosity made me swatch T&C against my other 2 teal bullets to see just how much brighter/lighter it is. So...

Spoiler
EDB265CC-3B4D-4DCD-95A8-67F8CF5DE4C7.jpegT-B: Fenty Turks & Caicos, ColourPop Getty, MUFE C603. L is indoor lighting, R is beauty lighting.
C603 is really supposed to be midnight blue. On me, it sometimes reads very teal. Other times, in certain lighting, it does read closer to a dark blue. Getty is definitely teal. If forced to limit myself to just one teal bullet, I’d choose Getty over T&C. But I don’t intend to ditch T&C. Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Omg my fiancé HATES T&C! Sooooo...that means I must buy it. 🤣 I do try to buy something he likes at the same time I get something I like. Two lipsticks. Yeah!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@divaknits Smiley Very Happy At least it’s a good excuse for double the lipstick purchases!

so pretty @WinglessOne it reminds me of something magical 😄
