And the last week of 20 Days of Lipstick is late and ends on a Tuesday. Mostly because I didn’t want to extend it for another week (i.e. prolong the recap and post next Sunday), just because I ran out of days for lipstick-wearing. Anyway, ahem.
I got this in the first Le Métier de Beauté Beauty Vault VIP box, when they had yet to launch the Hydra-Crème line, and I would never have picked this for myself. Mostly because I don’t believe that reds look all that good on me. I’m glad I got this, though, because I think it might be my favorite “real” red (in case Guerlain’s Orgueil is too purple to count for all y’all. The formula is fantastic, too, if anyone was wondering. Especially for a matte lipstick! I forgot how much I loved this one, to be honest.
Not technically mine, but it’s beautiful! I didn’t think I could wear this color when I saw it in the tube, for some reason? This is a picture after I’ve worn it for like two hours or something, so the color and finish are a little fade-y. It’s definitely more creamy when freshly applied. I love that this stains your lips.
This was a real pain to wear since I hadn’t touched it in a while and the formula went all watery. It’s a much deeper brick red (supposedly), so I’ll just have to remember to wear it more often from now on.
P.S. I don’t understand why people keep saying that OCC Lip Tars “stay put” on your lips through meals and the apocalypse. I find them to fade/wear off so quickly for me.
This one, I have ignored for a while. I don’t know why… For a person who confesses not to like dark/bright pinks, I sure have a lot of them! This is an excellent kind of shocking reddish pinky coral. Something like that. I love this formula and how easy it is to apply when you get the hang of it, especially when it comes with its own mirror.
Another pink! This is technically wearable, but it’s a lip that doesn’t get put on too often. I love how it looks, though. I think I just need to get used to seeing myself wear pinky shades. These Apocalips Lip Lacquers (I have 2) are great, though. They last long and stain your lips pretty well.
I think I’m warming up to oranges. 🙂 Though this is not technically a straight-up orange, but a kind of pinky coral-y one. I really like the formula of this and the plasticky scent I hated when I first got it seems to have faded when I depotted it into a pillbox. YAY. I shall wear this more often, despite the added hassle of a lip brush. I don’t know if I’ve been eating something that makes me hanker for more oranges or if it’s just a natural effect of summer!
Anyway, there you have it! 20 Days of Lipstick donez. On to the next challenge!
