20 Days of Lipstick: Week 2 Recap

Yay, here’s Week 2 of my Beauty Dare to wear 20 different lipsticks in a month, in an effort to stay away from the neutrals and MLBBs I always reach for and to keep my lipsticks in a healthy rotation. If you missed the Week 1 Recap, it’s here.

20 Days of Lipstick - MAC Ravishing
DAY SIX feat. MAC Creamsheen Lipstick in Ravishing

I love this color, but I hate this formula, which is probably why I don’t wear this shade that often. It’s just heavy and icky, but the color is just fantastic, I think.

20 Days of Lipstick - Chanel La Favorite
DAY SEVEN feat. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Favorite

I wore this to the farm for my sister’s birthday. This is a pretty great long-wearing matte formula, but it does tend to cling to dry patches when you don’t prep your lips properly.

DAY EIGHT feat. Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait in Orgueil

Orgueil is my favorite red. I don’t wear this out all that often anymore, just because I’ve nested in my comfy neutrals, but I love the shade. It’s a plum-leaning, deeper than usual red and it has transfer issues, but it’s long-wearing and beautiful!

20 Days of Lipstick - THREE Edith's Whisper
DAY NINE feat. THREE Glam Touch Lipstick Color in Edith’s Whisper

I’m not sure why this is so sheer in the photograph, but this is a brown-based sheer dark red. It’s easy to wear and reapply.

20 Days of Lipstick - NARS Niagara
DAY TEN feat. NARS Satin Lipstick in Niagara

A beautiful lip c/o Laala from our swap! This is so easy to wear and brightens up the face real nicely for the summer.

And that’s it for Week 2! My original rules were to wear one shade for each weekday but I overestimated my social calendar (lol), so two of these shades were worn on the weekend. I’m altering my rules to wear a different lip for 5 days of each week, regardless of weekday status.

If you’re doing this challenge too, don’t forget to link me! 🙂 I’m honestly really enjoying it so far, and it lets me really think about what shades I already have in my stash so I currently have the hots for no lipsticks… except maybe NARS Catfight. But I can manage.

    • Hey Tellie! Well, strictly speaking, neutrals are… neutrals. These are pinks, peaches, sheer burgundies. I don’t think any of them are necessarily neutrals, and none of them are MLBBs. Maybe they’re not bold and loud colors—I don’t have many of those to begin with—but they are definitely not neutrals!

      • Oooh good point. Sobrang biased ko pala talaga sa pinks I consider them neutral, but they aren’t (not by a mile!)

  3. Peach is definitely your color. Btw, you inspired me to do a foundation challenge. Crossfingers I follow-through.

  4. Hey, nice post! I’m Cameron and I’m very interested in fashion and style. I think you would enjoy my posts; I would really appreciate a follow back! Thanks!

  5. Niagara looks very nice on you!! BTW, Have you tried Nars’ Dolce Vita lipstick?
