Re: Lipstick Playground

I got a bit busy so I haven't been posting. I just kept using my Besame and Marc Jacobs from my previous post, unless some particular other lipstick or gloss from my collection was "required", so they all got quite a bit of use!

 

Oct 17: This time I will be using my YSL lipsticks and balms, as well as all of the YSL lip samples that I have never gotten around to trying. I don't know how long I will keep these out before moving on to NARS. Probably through next weekend. The names are in the spoiler below.

Re: Lipstick Playground

@gingerleigh I love YSL lippies! Thanks for sharing Smiley Happy

RE: Lipstick Playground

I bought the new Huda Power Bullet In wedding day (which I LOVE). Could anyone suggest a liner to go with it?

Re: RE: Lipstick Playground

Hi @shansbury,

 

I agree with @melissabt! That is the perfect lip liner to go with it Smiley Happy

 

Best,

Re: Lipstick Playground

Oct 4: I'm starting to feel like I took over this thread. Smiley Sad But this method of going through my lipsticks is really working for me. I don't feel like I have a ton of unused lipsticks sitting around, anymore. Now I feel like I am really using, or going to use, all of them, eventually! Smiley Happy

 

I only have three Besame lipsticks and no samples, so this post will take me through the weekend.

From left to right, Red Velvet 1946, Dusty Rose 1969, Portrait Pink 1963.


After this I am going to do YSL because I have a lot of samples, then Marc Jacobs because some of them are bordering on retirement age, then Nars for the same reason, but I have a lot of Nars and it is going to take a long time to get through them compared to the other brands.

 

Oct 8 Edit: I'm keeping Besame out and adding Marc Jacobs, and I will keep these two brands in use for a week or so. I just ordered a new YSL lipstick so I want to wait on that brand. With Marc Jacobs, I have two lipsticks and 3 glosses.

Re: Lipstick Playground

You’re right, it’s been a bit quiet on this thread. However, I like your idea of going through lipsticks of one brand at a time to get more uses out of them. Are you planning on wearing each Bésame shade once from today till Sunday or would you be rotating them throughout the week? @gingerleigh 

Re: Lipstick Playground

I'm just going to wear whichever one I want whenever, and try to use them all at least once. Not going to be a problem with this brand. Right now I'm going shopping and I'm going to wear the Portrait Pink, but tonight I will switch to the red. @Guessgal 

Re: Lipstick Playground

Sept 22: This time around I am focusing on the brand Lipstick Queen, because I just bought a new one from them right before starting this lipstick project. Not pictured: a lot of well-loved shades that are retired. All of the shades on the tray here are in the Spoiler below.

From left to right: mini Frog Prince, mini Hello Sailor, mini Medieval, Black Lace Rabbit, Bright Natural Sinner, Blue By You, Mornin' Sunshine, Girls Will Be Boys, Venetian Masquerade, Saint Berry

(If I manage to keep up with this project, at the end I'll gather up all the photos and make a post in the Show Me Your Collection thread.)

Re: Lipstick Playground

These are all really easy to wear, even Bright Natural Sinner, the most opaque of them. I found myself going back for Girls Will Be Boys (in the silver tube) the most, not sure if that was because it was the new one I had just purchased, or because it was a novelty for me to have a mattifying shade in this brand, or because I just enjoyed it. All three statements are true.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Sept 14: I am gonna pick a brand and gather up all the lip products and samples I have from it. Then set a time frame for using only this brand as much as I can.

 

First, Guerlain. Looks like I have 7 Guerlain lipsticks, 1 mini, and 5 samples. So, I will give this brand about...until the official start of fall, Sept 23.

Re: Lipstick Playground

Trip Report: Gathering up my Guerlain lipsticks really helped me focus on making use of them. I enjoyed wearing them, comparing them, and taking stock of the various shades and finishes I own in this brand. I wore all of them at least once, except the mini of Rouge Kiss, because it is pretty old, to be honest. I usually put lipsticks away after they've been open a couple years. I also tried some of the Guerlain lipstick samples I pulled from my stash for this self-challenge/experiment. I tried the matte Crazy Nude, which I loved the color of, and I tried Pink Tie from La Petite Robe Noire, but the scent in the sample was too strong. Strange because the full size lipstick I have from that line does not have such an overwhelming scent.

 

My favorite of my Guerlain lipsticks is still my Rouge G!
