Week in Lipsticks

You have no idea how many times I've tried to do a post like this, and then forgot what products I was using each day.

This week I kept careful track of my lip products so I can finally do a week in lipsticks post! Prepare for lots of nudes.

Sunday: Rimmel 45 (not CF)
I didn't do much this day, I didn't have to go to work so I mostly worked on assignments! My sister went back to school so before she had to leave we went out for lunch and I wore my Project Pan pick, this cool-toned nude in 45. It's very creamy and comfortable, a good lipstick for all year round.

Monday: MAC Matte in Honeylove (not CF)
Mondays and Wednesdays are my longest ones, so I usually go for my favorite lipsticks on these days. Honeylove fits the bill! It's a warm nude, lighter than MAC's Velvet Teddy, in a matte finish that is very comfortable. It's one of my all-time favorites, though unfortunately it's not cruelty-free.

Tuesday: Bareminerals Pop of Passion in Rose Passion
I bought this at TJ Maxx recently and was excited to put it to the test! I had only one class and a meeting this day, so a tinted lip balm was a good match for my minimal makeup. This shade was surprisingly pigmented for a lip balm and left a pretty reddish pink tint to my lips.

Wednesday: Tarte Colorsplash in Salt Lyfe
My Wednesday started off early at 5:45 am, where I got ready for work and worked from 7 am to 11:30. Then I went right to class and had three classes until 9 o'clock at night! For such a long day I went for another favorite, Tarte's mauvey matte lipstick in Salt Lyfe. How gorgeous is this packaging? I love this shade for fall!

Thursday: Colourpop Ultra Satin lip in Aquarius
I'm not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks, even these comfortable satin ones, so I tend to use them on days when I will only wear them for a few hours. I had one class so I went for Aquarius, a nude just a few shades lighter than my lips.

Friday: Rimmel 45 (not CF)
Again, I had one class so I decided to reach for my Project Pan lipstick. I also had a family dinner that I wore this to.

Saturday: Buxom Full-on Lip Cream White Russian
I worked the closing shift on Saturday so I went for a glossy lip! Not exactly on trend, but White Russian is one of my favorite glosses. It has a great scent and gently plumps the lips. If you don't like sticky glosses this might not be for you, but otherwise I definitely recommend it.

And that was my uneventful week in lipsticks! As you can see I'm quite fond of my nudes, especially when I'm just going to class or to work. As we get further into autumn I'm hoping to break out the berry shades.

What lipsticks are you reaching for lately?

  1. I received my Colourpop order recently and I ordered a couple of the Ultra Satin liquid lipsticks and I have to say they are better than other liquid lipsticks I tried and were so dry, these are so nice and the shades are amazing! x


  2. Indeed MAC is not cruel-free :( but after using so many liquid lipsticks you can never go wrong with the classic ones

  3. i'm not related to this but i think its good to organize using the lipsticks :)), i like this idea :)), great post!!

  11. Salt Lyfe and Aquarius are so gorgeous! I have Honeylove and on this picture it seems so much dark than it actually is ahaha. I wear nudes the most of the time, but there are days that I like a pop of color! xx

  14. Rimmel 45 and MAC look the best to me, but I could use them all haha
    great idea. I would probably also forget what I used. I would have to buy separate containers with days written on them haha

  16. Love the idea of wearing a different lipstick every day! I usually stick with the same few. I really like the lovely nudes you picked, but I think that my favourite one has to be Passion! Such a gorgeous shade especially for autumn. <3 Thanks for sharing, lovely! xoxo


  17. Ooo, such pretty shades! I love the look of Salt Lyfe!

  18. Hi all,
    Read my testimony!
    Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
