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

@heartsmyface  Daylight’s usually best, for sure. Sometimes I go to a window, or wait til I’m outside to take selfies. Once upon a time, I lived in a true Chicago loft and set up part of my space as a mini photo studio. This was back in the pre-smartphone days, so there was no instant checking of photos—which meant I was constantly tweaking the lighting and angles a bit to ensure at least one photo of a series was what I wanted. Those were the days! Smiley Very Happy I do kinda miss it sometimes, but modern day digital 35mms and smartphone cameras are wonderfully convenient.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne ,

I love Rose Rouge on you (in the kitchen lighting!)

The difference in camera resolution!  Wow!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @tsavorite ! That’s the iPhone XS rear camera vs. front camera. I think it’s good to take selfies with a higher res camera sometimes, to remind folks what skin actually looks like in real life. Smiley Very Happy It’s a lot more convenient to use the front camera though; kinda hard to line up a good selfie with the rear camera sometimes. 

 

Edit: To be fair, though, that rear camera sees much more sharply than my eyes do. I swear that camera picks up and accentuates EVERYthing. Some folks fear 10x mirrors because “oh no, I can see EVERY bump and pore!” Haha, that’s nothing compared to a newer phone’s rear facing camera. Smiley Very Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Ha, but if you do your makeup in a 10x mirror it tends to look flawless if you manage to resist the urge to keep adding more to cover the imperfections you can’t normally see! @WinglessOne 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface  😂 As I’ve told many a friend and younger relative, “whenever you think you need to add more, check a 1x mirror first. Do not be fooled by the 10x!” 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne  And never ever ever sit in front of a 20x mirror with a pair of tweezers.  Just don’t.  

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

NARS Velvet lip glide in Burning Love, no lipliner.
I hate to say it but not as good as Lancome Labsolue Lacquer. But, when you put it on top of NARS powermatte, it makes the color brighter and shinier without losing the staying power of the power matte Smiley Happy It doesnt dissolve like glosses20190326_193528.jpgNars velvet lip glide

 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Oh, good to know it pairs well with the powermatte! I’ve seen the velvet lip glide a couple times, but never swatched it myself! It looks marvellous on you! @Buootiful 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thank you! You are too kind Smiley Happy @Guessgal  <3

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Very pretty strawberry shade on you @Buootiful perfect compliment to the blue 👍 you wear the bright shades beautifully. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thank you so much! I thought it was going to be more red than pink based on the bottle color but it works *High five! @2manyperfumes 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

That color looks so pretty on you @Buootiful!❤️

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Buootiful It’s gorgeous!  And you’re looking especially nice today.  New skincare?  Your glow is wonderful! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thank you so much but the glow is coming from the outside light Smiley Happy ! In a way, It is new skincare @heartsmyface . I hadnt done a chemical exfoliation mask in a while cuz this one is extremely uncomfortable. Its from Little barn apothecary -Passion Fruit + Rose Enzymatic Exfoliant. Very interesting but I cant tell results because the tingling scares me so I dont do it 1x a wk, but the red goes away by the time I wake up.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Buootiful ,

Burning Love is great on you!  You should never let this one go!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Ahh, thank you! Hopefully I can pan it this year since it;s a mini Smiley Happy @tsavorite 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@Buootiful  I’m convinced the Velvet Lip Glides and Powermattes were made to work together, because everything else I’ve worn under any Velvet Lip Glide gums/gunks/balls up. This one’s beautiful on you! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thank you! Now I am going to test with all the lipliners I have Smiley Happy @WinglessOne 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Definitely not feeling the too faced peach puff diffused matte lip color in velvet rope.   It’s not that it isn’t any of those things.  It’s exactly that it is all of those things.   I can see wanting to wear them under other lipsticks as an insurance policy but I can’t help but feel like this just looks like I need to reapply. Maybe the four I bought will grow on me.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface Thank you for your feedback on this! This color is great! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface  It takes a while to get used to those soft diffused finishes. (I’m going through the same thing with a different diffused finish lipstick.) I do like this one on you, though, as a lip stain look. 

 

I played with a couple of the Peach Puffs in store. I didn’t buy one mostly because I knew the applicator would frustrate me. But now I wonder how they sit under gloss. I bet a clear or pink/peach tinted gloss would make Velvet Rope pop. Smiley Happy
