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.

Thanks @2manyperfumes!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Wow!  I only put one coat on- mine looks more subdued than yours.  The amount of coats does make a difference!  It is also good to know that I can build this colour up. Of course, I'm assuming you put more than 1 coat on. Otherwise woah!  Fantastic colour off on one coat.

@WinglessOne 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@l8totheparty  I usually do 2 coats on my bottom lip and 2 or 3 on my top lip; that’s probably what I did in that photo. I rarely sheer the Lacquers out. They’re formulated specifically to be buildable, though. One coat should give you a sheer or semi-sheer finish. 2-3 will give you full opacity. Don’t do more than 3, though, or they’ll get very clumpy and patchy. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Sage advice,  @WinglessOne ! 

 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Hi @l8totheparty ,

 

This is a really pretty shade on you! 

 

Best Wishes,

Uoma Beauty Black Magic Metallic Shine Lipstick in Mother

 

The description on Ulta isn't super clear as to whether the formula is matte or creamy, so I was a bit hesitant about grabbing one, but I am so glad I did. While I wouldn't really call it creamy per se, it's definitely softer and smoother than anything I'd consider matte. It goes on evenly, no tugging or pulling or patchiness, and while I think you could sheer it out easily with a quick blot or by applying with a brush, it has excellent full coverage with a couple of strokes. I've had it in for not quite four hours now, and I am seriously ready to order more regardless of any overlaps in shades already in my collection (and there may not be many overlaps...I decluttered quite a few metallic bullets that were too dry for me). There is a bit of transfer, but very little for a bullet, and the wear down has been amazingly graceful. My lips aren't dry, and what's left is still just soft enough to smoosh around a bit to redistribute color if needed. No bleeding or feathering. If you like metallics, I highly recommend these!! 💖💖

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Oh, yes, that's pretty!  @RGbrown 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @tsavorite! ❣️

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

I really like this shade on you @RGbrown 🥰 gorgeous shade kind of smoky and definitely a keeper 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@2manyperfumes 

Thanks so much! 💖

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

That shade looks fantastic @RGbrown!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@faeriegirl 

Thanks so much! 💖💖

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

 

ugh I’m so tempted to break my no buy and I’m only five days into my renewed lipstick challenge.  I already caved and bought some Lisa Eldridge lipsticks the other day so I have to behave (plus I have no more lipstick slots in my lippy drawers) @RGbrown   It looks pretty on you!  

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface 

Stay strong! After this round came in, I discovered I had to declutter some to fit the new ones in my containers (or else break out a new bin, which I'm trying to stay strong about not doing), so I'm done buying for a while too! In the end, we both have way more than we can ever use before they go bad anyways...I'm trying to remind myself of that again. It's tough though! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown   Right!! Okay this is exactly what I needed.  A good pep talk and someone to tell me how it is!  I eventually want to get down to one drawer of lipsticks but that’s a pipe dream right now. lol,  I’m on day 5 of 540sh lipsticks.  🤢. This’ll take a while but i’m hoping to also declutter some as I go. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface 

540??? 😮

I'm a little jealous, but couldn't even begin to imagine having that many to go through...it actually gives me a little anxiety. I'm floating around 180ish and don't want to get too many more; that's roughly twice a year per lippie if I'm good about rotating and wear one every day. I try and make that my sobering thought every time a want a new one (but it all goes out the window when Ulta has a 20% and I have points to burn, which is what happened with this haul...I have a hard time turning down "free" even when I have too much as it is lol)

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Nah don’t be jealous.  It’s sobering all right.  Haha, i switch up my lipstick a two or three times a day in reality so it does get used...just not as often as it should.    Yeah there’s no way of rationalizing it.  I need to do a purge and at least get down to two drawers.  I know I can probably off a bunch of liquid lipsticks in a heartbeat and not feel a thing cause I know I have more comfortable dupes.  @RGbrown 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

On the weekends I sometimes do 2 lipsticks in one day Smiley Happy @heartsmyface @RGbrown I have a hard time not buying. Smiley Sad I know I have a lot and when I think of the old lipsticks, I dont want to wear them either. I guess that is a sign to throw it away. But then I dont want to, cuz i did spend the $$ on them and need to finish them Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@heartsmyface 

Ok you're way ahead of me there. I'm doing good if I remember to apply lipstick once...forget changing it up throughout the day lol. 

 

Liquids were the first things I ditched the first time around; mattes make me wanna cry nowadays, and most glosses got dumped too because I just don't wear them often. Pulling a few out yesterday was a bit tougher since I've been through everything and decided I liked what was left...so now I'll have to make myself think long and hard about new purchases and make sure any new lippies are worthy of tossing out something I know I like. 😣

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown   But that’s a good thing that you like everything you have!!!  Isn’t that the ultimate goal? The tricky thing is trying to replace the shopping high with something else.  Ha, I’ve been working out whenever I get the itch to shop. It’s soooorta working but there’s only so much my muscles can take.  It’s not so much the FOMO that’s my problem as it is night boredom.
