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

Thank you so much @curlychiquita

I was pretty shocked to find the PMG lipsticks too. The particular store where I found them is kind of smallish. I found them in the racks on the way to the cashier!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@jozkid I’m glad you found the PMG mini set! I wanted to get it as a gift for someone, but of course it sold out online and I didn’t see it in the local Sephora that sells PMG. Anyway, Flesh 3 looks great on you! 

 

I’m with you on super nudes. They’re usually so nude, I might as well wear clear lip balm instead. And you made me realize I’ve never tried a Givenchy lipstick before. I may need to remedy that. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

What day are we on? Who knows. Today I wore Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. This is my favorite midtoned rose. Marc Jacobs of you ever think about discontinuing the Le Marc Lip Cremes you’re out of your dang mind. Don’t. Do. It. I need Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (and Slowburn, haven’t worn that yet for the challenge) in my life forever. 

 

Ignore the terrible lighting and my zit. Back at work and this is what happens.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@alexasteph This is such a beautiful shade on you!  I swatched it in store and didn't like it but now I'm rethinking it.  I only put it on my hand.  I was also interested in slowburn but I used a spoolie (it was a struggle) to scrape off enough lipstick to try it on my lips but didn't like it.  I've been really enticed by that line and think I'll have to go revisit those colors.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@alexasteph@alexasteph

You look so good in all these nude tones. They're so becoming on you!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@jozkid Oh thank you! It’s defintely what I gravitate toward, but I’ve been trying to reach for reds and berries more.  

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I'm the one who's hopelessly drawn to berries and reds @alexasteph

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I'm loving this shade @alexasteph! I need to add this to my list ☺️💖

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 19. Excited about this one. I've been saving it. Smashbox always on lipstick from the Smashbox Vlada collab. The shade is In Bloom. Hooray for metallics!

Also I've done eye looks the last 4 days as I'm trying to look more polished. Thanks for the encouragement ladies.20180828_095332.jpg

 

 

 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Man, I think metallics are your thing @sprocketta! That looks fantastic on you <3 

I think Smashbox has the best metallics so far. I can't wait to put on some Smashbox liquid lips when I get to them.

You could checkout Ulta they have a box set of Be Legendary 3 creams and 4 metallics gloss/lipstick hybrids. Sometimes it goes on sale for $40 and is worht it for so many full size lippies. Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta I love both the lipstick and your eyeshadow! You look great 😉! By the way I happen to LOVE metallics and shimmers! It just gives you a special look, some extra sparkle! The key is not to go in sparkle overload since you didn’t want to look like a firework! I’m glad that you’re trying new looks, keep it up! You’re doing great 👍!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks! @keana1 I've been exploring the UD Naked palette (yes, I was late to the show) and that eye shadow is from there.  I have a few other metallic lipsticks and love those as well.  As you said, you have to be careful so you don't go overboard.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I love that gold shadow @sprocketta  It's so lovely on you and it goes so well with the lippie! I like that it's metallic but not in a weird robotic way.  

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@michelleshops lol "not in a weird robotic way"  Thanks for the kind words.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta The gold looks great! I love using gold on my eyes. Isn’t it a fantastic feeling when you put on a lippie and you’re just like “Yaaaassssss.” 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@alexasteph Yes, that's how I felt when I put that lipstick on!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Speaking of lipsticks that make you look dead: this is Smashbox Be Legendary cream lipstick in Skinny Jeans. It’s one of the few blues that truly make me look asphyxiated. It’s so grayish blue, my phone camera automatically pulled extremely yellow/warm to compensate—which made me look like an overripe tangerine, so I did lots of color correcting in iOS Photos afterward. 😄 This made the final photo too red/cool toned overall, but at least the lipstick appears true to in-person color. And I refuse to pull this photo into Photoshop CS to fully color correct everything because honestly, this lipstick’s not worth the effort.

I wore it for just one hour today, thinking “maybe I’ll like it now that I haven’t worn it in months.” But nope: it’s still super patchy and not buildable. It doesn’t work well as a topper either (I’ve tried many times). I’ve meant to toss it for a long time... I think I kept it in case I wanna do ghost or zombie makeup for Halloween. But it’s too lousy a performer for that. So now it’s in my declutter box. 

 

Did I mention how much I hate this lipstick? 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne This challenge is totally making me go back and try lipsticks I didn't like.  Just confirms my previous thoughts and decision to get rid of them.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne

I also keep lipsticks for potential Halloween looks, especially the unconventional shades that I really want to like but just cant justify wearing normally. One really saved me recently by assisting me in creating a teal lip to match my shirt. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@peanutpioneer Careful, or you’ll end up with a declutter box full of lipsticks, including the ones you’d saved for Halloween. 😄 Last night I found more “maybe this’ll work for costumes” lipsticks in my collection, and those are now in the box.

 

My new lipstick rule: if it’ll only work for one occasion, then it’s not worth buying/keeping. Try to get more than once-a-year use out of it to justify keeping it. Sticking to that will be hard because it’s fun to stockpile lipsticks for costumer/art looks. But if a special occasion lipstick can’t work outside that occasion—even as a base coat or topper—then it’s time to let it go. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne

You're right. I actually didn't realize how many lippies I had until starting this challenge. Lol. I would feel better parting with them if I knew they were going to get used and not simply tossed, like some of the others had been speaking about.
