A Working Week in Lipstick #3

week in lipstick urban decay too faced nars charlotte tilbury mac

It’s been ages since I did one of these so I thought I’d try to get back into it starting now! Lipstick is one of my favourite makeup items and I love changing what I’ve got on each day although some of my lipsticks are more similar to each other than I sometimes think they are!

Monday
I went with Urban Decay Vice Comfort Matte lipstick in Backtalk today and this has to be one of the most comfortable matte formulations I’ve tried and I suppose the clue is in the name! It’s a beautiful mauve shade that isn’t drying at all and wears off evenly, I love it!

Tuesday
I wasn’t working today so went with something a little more daring than my usual nude pinks with this Too Faced Melted lipstick in Fig! I absolutely love the shade; it’s so rich and vibrant! This isn’t a lipstick I would wear to work though because I find myself checking my lips/teeth in the mirror quite a lot with this as it doesn’t completely dry down and has a tendency to move about a little! I got my mini in a set last Christmas and I don’t wear it nearly enough! It’s worth the extra effort though as it feels good on my lips and wears off slowly leaving a gorgeous stain behind.

Wednesday
I picked up this NARS Audacious lipstick in Anita last year and it’s another one I don’t reach for enough. I was a bit unsure of the colour when I first saw it in the flesh after buying as it seems to lean a little warm on me but I’ve grown to really like it (especially when I’ve got tan on). Again, it’s a comfortable creamy formula that lasts a good few hours on my lips before it starts to feel a little drier – but a bit of clear balm extends it a while longer!

Thursday
After falling in love with the K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula of Bitch Perfect, I picked up Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Liv it Up. Like NARS Anita, the colour wasn’t quite what I was expecting – it’s very pink! This might be something to do with my lips though and not the actual colour of the lipsticks! Anyway, once I got over the pinkness, this is a beautiful lipstick and the K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula is probably my favourite lipstick formula ever! It’s so long-lasting and hydrating and I love it!

Friday
Just before Christmas, MAC had 20% off so while I was getting my mum a foundation I treated myself to my second MAC lipstick in Brave, a satin formula. Again, and I didn’t mean this post to be about initial disappointment in lipstick but I was shocked at how pink this turns up on my lips! It settles down after a while though and a little more mauve shows through which I prefer but overall although it’s comfortable, it’s not the longest lasting and overall I don’t get the hype for MAC lipsticks! This also looks quite similar in the swatch to Liv it Up but I find Liv it Up shinier and brighter overall!

So that’s another working week in lipstick! Let me know if you have tried any of these shades or what you’d recommend for a mauve lipstick lover like me!

  13. Fig is a beautiful colour, I wish it dried down, I know I'd make a big mess with it. I like brave, but when I got it, I didn't notice how pink it is, it must be the store light :) I think I'll make a lot use of it in spring&summer.

  18. Fig looks like my kind of colour! Unfortunately I find Too Faced Melted formula gives me that gross white ring in the middle of my lips. :-(
