Wow I cannot believe I have been tracking my lipstick for four weeks now! I have been wearing a wide variety of lipsticks, glosses, stains, and more. I love finding old favourites in my collection and it has been a lot of fun to try everything so far. As always, here are my seven different lipsticks I wore this past week, and my thoughts/review on each one.
Monday: ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in shade Mama
I was so impressed with this shade. It was the perfect muted orange red that wasn’t too orange or too red. It looked great on and lasted super long, even through meals. It did not feel drying or thick and had the perfect application with one thin coat that was so crisp on my lip lines. This one quickly jumped up to the top of my ColourPop favourites.
Tuesday: L’Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Colour in shade Mad For Matte
I wanted a super bold bright red for Valentine’s Day and this was the perfect choice. This is such a creamy formula and even though it is a matte lipstick it feels smooth and soft and more like a balm to wear. I love this L’Oreal line and every time I wear one I love them even more. The bold colour, great formula, long-lasting power, and creamy feel make this one of my favourite lipstick.
Wednesday: ColourPop Sheer Lippie Stix in shade Whip
This lipstick looks so crazy and bold in the tube but it actually comes out like a lovely medium purple wash of colour when I apply it. I think it has to do with the sheer formula. I love how shiny and smooth this makes me lips and it really feels moisturizing for quite a few hours. It does have a slightly odd scent when I first apply it but luckily that fades quickly and I am only left with the pretty colour.
Thursday: Maybelline New York SuperStay 14HR Lipstick in shade Enduring Ruby
This lipstick was a total surprise to stumble upon because I ddin not even know I had it. I picked it up because I liked the shade and decided to give it a shot, and ended up really falling for it. I loved the deep red hue but I also loved how shiny it was, how long it lasted, and how great it felt to wear. This might be an older Maybelline release but it is still going strong and I was super impressed with it. I can’t say it lasted 14 hours but it definitely lasted strongly through breakfast, coffees, and lunch.
Friday: Maybelline New York Baby Lips in shade Spice it Up
This is one of my consistent go-to balms because it feels awesome to wear and delivers great colour. I love a lot of the Baby Lips shades but this one is one of my top three because it has a nice spicy red/pink shade that is easily build-able for a more opaque look.
Saturday: NYC Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain on shade On Everyone’s Lips
I like this lip stain because it is very light and thin. It ends up looking similar to my regular lip colour but a bit more mauve tinted. It’s easy to work with and lasts me a few hours with a nice colour. It is a browny/mauve hue that can be built up a little with an extra layer.
Sunday: Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in shade Kir Royale
I rarely wear glosses but I picked up this pretty deep red gloss for something different to end the week. I like the shade and consistency, and it feels good to wear. I don’t love the fake cotton candy scent but for such a pretty dark red gloss I was able to forgive that.
Check out the swatches!
So there we go, my fourth week of tracking my lipstick and I have found some serious favourites. I love the Maybelline SuperStay shade, and seem to be repeating ColourPop Ultra Mattes a lot, and have had some great options with tinted balms. Tracking these lipstick weeks has made me really appreciate my collection a lot more and I am enjoying shopping my stash. I can’t wait to see what shades I pick this week!
