My Collection

31-Day Lipstick Challenge

I’m not really one for New Year’s resolutions, but I do like to try new things – even if it’s actually an old thing. I decided to start off this year with a lipstick challenge – 31 days of lipstick with no repeats, forcing me to “shop my stash” and evaluate what I already own. When you wear makeup pretty much every day, especially if you’re wearing it in a professional environment with… more conservative views on makeup than you’d prefer, it’s pretty easy to get stuck in a rut with the same quick and easy looks. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but I love lipstick and I own a lot of them so I wanted to challenge myself to play with my existing collection a bit more.

I don’t actually wear makeup every single day, especially if I’m not at work or going out, so it took me a little bit longer than the original January plan of 31 consecutive days, but I did it and I’m so pleased with this little project.

Unfortunately, I am a bad blogger and didn’t take a photo of myself every single day, but I did keep a list of everything I wore. Here’s my 31 days of lipstick, with product photos for any day that I didn’t actually snap a picture of my face.

The first number is the lipstick and the second number is the date of the month. The first product listed is lip liner and the second item is the lipstick. If only one item is listed, I didn’t wear lip liner that day. I did allow myself to repeat lip liner usage, mostly because I don’t own that many and don’t think it’s necessary.

    The Lipstick Challenge… continues? 💄 Yesterday I wore @doseofcolors Los Anjealous to celebrate the last day of my January lipstick challenge, and then I realized I'd only worn lipstick for 23 days. My challenge wasn't actually to wear lipstick every day, it was to "shop my stash" and not repeat any of my lip product choices for the month, but you guys overwhelmingly voted for me to keep the challenge going until I hit 31 (seriously, like 90% of you)! So, here we are. My January challenge continues and will likely be done next Friday (I don't usually wear makeup both weekend days). I didn't snag a good pic this morning, but today is day 24 and I'm wearing @limecrimemakeup True Love 💋 . . . #makeup #makeupnerdery #lipstick #january #beauty #nofilter #beautyblogger #bblogger #motd #fotd #marcjacobs #doseofcolors #limecrime #katvond #lipstickchallenge #lips #girlswithglasses #foureyedmua #makeupoftheday #faceoftheday #xxfotd #glasses #thursday #friday #keepgoing #day24
