A Working Week in Lipstick #1

 week in lipsticks chartlotte tilbury colourpop urban decay revlon nars nyx kevyn aucoin

I’ve seen posts like this crop up on a few blogs now (namely Sally’s) so thought I’d join in and show you what lipstick I’ve been wearing to work this week! Changing my lipstick and blush is something I try and do consciously everyday as they are what I have most of in my makeup collection. I don’t tend to take lipstick with me for touch-ups so I look for something comfortable and that will last me until tea time then I will just apply whatever lip balm I have in my handbag throughout the day!

colourpop lippie stix in crunch

Monday
I went with my ColourPop Lippie Stix in Crunch today as I realised I hadn’t used it in far too long! I actually got put off this because I wore it to an interview I had last year and when I got back into my car I realised I had talked that much it had gathered in the middle of my lips! Not a good look! Happy to report this didn’t happen today and I’ve fallen back in love with the sheer but buildable bright coral colour it gives! See the haul this was included in here!

Tuesday
I used my Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani lipstick in Ex-Girlfriend over the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk for today. I’ve become a little obsessed with this lip liner since I got it, I absolutely love the colour! It comes up as a light dusty mauve on me and is so creamy and easy to fill my lips in with as it doesn’t drag at all. I went over the top with Ex-Girlfriend as I love the neutral colour and shine it gives to the lips! This was limited edition but Urban Decay have brought out Ex-Girlfriend as part of their new Vice lipstick collection though I’m not sure if it’s exactly the same shade!  

revlon ultra hd lipstick in rose

Wednesday
Revlon Ultra HD lipstick in Rose was my pick for today! The packaging of this range of lipsticks is a bit controversial as the bullet is very easily messed up if you hit the side of the lid putting it back in. I haven’t had any major disasters but I’m always careful with this one! The range seems to have a lot of very bright colours but this is the only shade I have and I really like it, it’s creamy, pigmented, feels moisturising and wears off evenly – exactly what I look for in a lipstick!

kevyn aucoin flesh tone lip pencil medium nyx soft matte lip stockholm

Thursday
I went with the Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone lip pencil in Medium today with NYX Soft Matte Lip in Stockholm over the top. I got the Kevyn Aucoin lip pencil as a deluxe free gift with a Beauty Bay order a few weeks ago and I love it! It’s so soft and pigmented despite being more of a traditional pencil and though the colour isn’t something I would have picked myself, it matches perfectly with the NYX Soft Matte lip. I am a lip balm addict so don’t wear matte lipsticks often but I love this formula! It dries quickly and evenly and feels so comfortable on the lips! I do find the lines on my lips become more pronounced when I have this on though the product doesn’t settle in them at all! When I got to work I did put a bit of clear balm over the top to inject a little moisture! This did make it a bit more susceptible to transfer but it’s a price I’m willing to pay!

nars satin lip pencil in rikugien

Friday
I used my NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien today which I got in the Modern Minimalist box I splurged on recently! I love the formula of the satin lip pencils as they glide on so easily and Rikugien has a bit more sheen to it that the other shades I have but is a lovely rose colour that’s very ‘my lips but better’!

I’m heading on holidays for a week on Thursday so might be a little behind on comments! Do you have any of these lipsticks? Let me know if there are any others I might like!

  23. I love this idea.. I also love the idea of mixing it up every day. I'm pretty bad about wearing the same two or three lipsticks most days. And I'm like you, I don't take the lipstick with me for touchups.

  33. I'm the same Danielle, I always try and change up my blush and lip colour whenever I wear make-up. As I seem to create an eye look I love and constantly wear that lol. I am yet to try any ColourPop Lippie Stix, but I heard they're shipping to the UK soon. So I'll obviously be trying all of the nude/pink shades haha. You know I feel the same as you about the CT lip pencil. It is perfect under any pinky shade lipstick or gloss. I really enjoyed this post babe, make sure you share more of what products you wear in a week. Also have a lovely holiday, I'm super jealous lol.:) xx

  34. I find I go through stages when I wear lipsticks loads and then forget about it for like three weeks. This is such a good challenge, I may try it next week but I will need to write a reminder!
