{Beauty} My Week in Lipsticks


Let’s take a quick look into what lipsticks I’ve been loving recently!

This week I tended to stick with darker pink shades, and preferred pinks and nudes over pale or red options. I think these are some lovely shades to transition into the cooler weather with.



Monday: On Monday, we took a trip down to the country to visit my mum. It was her birthday over the weekend so we treated her to a delicious lunch and cider tasting at The Cidery. I chose to wear my ever-faithful MAC Lipstick in Brave for this occasion.

Tuesday: Still down south I toured the little country town in my no fuss Maybelline Colour Drama Lipstick in Nude Perfection. It was the perfect choice for a classically ‘finished’ look, without appearing ‘overdone’.

Wednesday: I wore Maybelline’s Colour Drama Lipstick in Nude Perfection again today as it is such an easy product to wear, requiring little to no touch ups.

Thursday: Thursday was a busy day, full of running around with errands. We had to take the pups for their first vet check, as well as buying supplies from the shops and having family over for dinner. I chose to wear my trusty Maybelline Lipstick in Wooden Brown, which is actually one of my favourite shades!

Friday: Friday I had a few more errands, an appointment at uni, another vet trip, and I also took a little time out to get my nails done. On this day, I chose to wear the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour in Passion for a pop of colour and a confidence boost. Just remember to wear lip liner with this one!

Saturday: Work, work, work! Feeling a bit of a light shade for work I chose to wear my Peony Cosmetics Highlighter in Pink Glow from my June Lip Monthly Box. I wore a little on my lips, but mostly applied it to my cheek bone as a pink and glowing highlighter.

Sunday: Sunday we went out for the evening to the Yak Ales Barbecue Festival and I wore my Rimmel Lipstick in Asia, which I got in a Kris Kringle gift from Jac and the Wolf, it matched perfectly with my outfit, but ultimately it couldn’t contend with all the sweet and sticky barbecue sauce I was eating!

    MAC Velvet Teddy is probably my most worn (and loved) lipstick. I’ve seen swatches of Maybelline’s Wooden Brown offering before and absolutely loved how it looked! How is the formula? I know Maybelline can be a little hit-or-miss when it comes to wear-time..

      Everyone raves about Velvet Teddy, I really want to add it to my collection!
      Wooden Brown is probably one of my favourite Maybelline lippys, and it’s not just the colour, the formula is also great and it lasts a fairly decent time too! Xx

      Thanks Mica, it was fun to compile too!
      I’m sorry, I just can’t comprehend that you only have one lipstick girl! I think it might be time to treat yourself to a few new shades! Xx

    I really enjoyed this post, it’s always good to see what makeup other girls wear! I haven’t tried any of these shades. The Maybelline Nude Perfection sounds like a great everyday shade!
