Introducing… Lipstick Week!

lipstick week placeholder

Two days ago, Tellie of Beauty by Tellie tagged me to do Lipstick Week, which she’d been doing. For her version of Lipstick Week, she showcased 7 lipsticks from her collection. As you can probably tell, I am primarily an eyeshadow fiend. However, I won’t say ‘no’ to a good tube of rouge!

Her mechanics are as follows:

  • Make seven blog posts about Lipstick Week. #LipstickWeek it if you’re on Twitter!
  • Post full reviews or quick swatches of your favorite shades. Heck I’d be fine reading about you waxing poetic over a lemming.
  • You can follow my schedule, pick your own or combine my ideas with yours. It’d be nice to know what other people use for caramels, mauves and corals which I never took up! You need 7 posts but I did mine over a three-week span, harhar.
  • Please post your first link in a comment on this post so I can follow your series 🙂
  • (ADDITIONAL) Tag 7 more when you’re done to keep Lipstick Week alive!


  • If you don’t want to go through all seven days, pleeeease just post a virtual tour of your lipstick collection. I’d still love that!!!

Anyway, I thought it fitting to announce this on my 199th post! Can you believe I’ve already reached this number? A little background on this blog:

  • My name is Carina and I live in Manila, Philippines.
  • I started it on the 21st of October, 2012.
  • The name, Softly Sometimes, is from a song by the Psychedelic Furs called “Pretty in Pink.”
  • I think I’m getting better at makeup.

Thank you for being a part of Softly Sometimes. 🙂 I’ll be using this post as a placeholder for lipstick week posts.
