So, if you’ve never been here before… every month or so I set myself a challenge to wear a different lipstick everyday of the week. Usually it’s to force me to wear things that are already in my collection and to share my love of things I own… HOWEVER, you may or may not have known that I got a lot of new lipstick in December. Through a combination of Black Friday, my advent calendars and Christmas presents I picked up a few… and so I thought I’d share my first thoughts (and one full review) on them…
And yes, there are 7 days in the week but only 6 lipsticks… but sometimes I don’t wear makeup ok?! haha!
Nudestix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Belle
Ok how have I not tried Nudestix before?! I am obsessed with this lip pencil! Haven’t used it as a blush yet, but it’s so comfortable and easy to wear on the lips and the shade is so pretty! I’d never really considered this brand before, but after these first impressions I really want to try more from them!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Do Me Baby
I’ve always wanted to try these lip pencils, they’ve been on my wishlist and in my shopping baskets WAY to many times! And I’m so excited to have this in my collection. This shade is gorgeous and this is a really comfortable matte ‘lipstick’. I’d say (on first impressions), I’m not as obsessed with the formula of this as I am with the Nudestix pencil…
bareMinerals Mineralist Hydra Smoothing Lipstick in Honey
So this is a true first impressions as I’ve only used this once. But on first impressions? Smells weird, feels super comfortable on the lips. That’s about as first impressions as you can get! The colour is so cute though!
Illamasqua Loaded Lip Pencil in Vogue
So I spoke about this on my Instagram the other day… I’m really not a fan of this lipstick. While the colour is gorgeous and it does look beautiful on the skin… I’m not a lipgloss person because I really don’t like that sticky feeling (you know where your hair gets stuck in you lip product) and that’s what this is! It does dry down after an hour or two… but still!
Charlotte Tilbury KISSING Lipstick in Stoned Rose
I LOVE this formula, but this shade is surprisingly orange toned. The camera does exaggerate it somewhat, but it is still orangey. However, the formula is gorgeous! Hydrating and comfortable and the packaging is so cute
Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipstick in Truffle
I’ve literally only just posted a full review on this lipstick, so this is the fuller review out of this selection. But it’s also the lipstick I’ve had the longest (as I picked it up in the Black Friday sales). This colour is just gorgeous and the formula is also great!
And there you go! What have you been wearing on your lipstick this week?
