The Lipstick Game - Week 6

On March 27, 2014 by Kate

Here we are again for TBM weekly feature of The Lipstick Game. Attempting to use all my lipsticks/glosses/balms/what-have-you in my collection has been a great experience, but I am noticing that I am avoiding some parts of my collection. There are a couple that I think I need to remove from my collection because I simply CRINGE when I think about putting them on. I will let you know which ones when I eventually wear them…if I wear them.

Day 34 - Rimmel London Cherry Kiss Lip Liner w/ Revlon Moon Drops Lip Conditioner

I loved this look. I wanted to try the lip liner on it’s own (essentially) before using it to beef up my plum liners, and I am super impressed! Love the shade and the longevity.

Day 35 - MAC Morange Amplified Finish

Morange has a cult following, and for good reason! It’s a really wearable orange shade, isn’t drying and screams for attention. It also looks amazing on all skin tones, from pale ivory through to espresso, and all in between.

Day 36 - Fantasy Makers Black Lipstick, with Revlon Black Cherry on top

I wanted to use the black lipstick in my collection while still making it more wearable. The Gothic Sprite (you can find her on Instagram or YouTube) is my latest muse and this is her go-to lip combo. I freaking love it. She’s amazing.

Day 37 - Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Striking

This was actually Saturday night but as you all know I am likely to miss a day during the week, so this is another way to beef out the post. I have been coveting the matte balms since their release in the UK. They FINALLY came to my little town and I snatched this one up.

Day 38 - L’Oreal Caresse Shine Stain in Lolita

This is a great glossy stain, similar to the YSL Glossy Stains I’ve heard, and is a beautiful neutral colour. Think My Lips But Glossier/Better. I was feeling the AHS Coven look today in my sweet hat.

Day 39 - Nyx Jumbo Lip Pencil in Honey Nectar

One of the first times I’ve used this one, and it’s pretty nice! I am not a huge fan of Nyx lipsticks/glosses because they taste/feel a little artificial, but I like this, and I think I will definitely wear it again!

Hope you enjoyed this week’s lipstick game! I think I am going to have to put all my lip products in a pile and take a photo at the end of it!

Stay Minty!

    I love the L’oreal Lolita color on you, and that black w/ black cherry combo is great! Wish I had the confidence to try so many new and different things :)

    Why do you think you initially bought those shades if they now make you cringe.. impulse? lol. Hues of red are always timeless choices ;D

      A couple of them I bought online and they just didn’t look how I thought they would. Like way overly frosty or just don’t suit my skin tone. :( Serves me right for not looking up swatches like I do now!

    I can’t believe how much lipstick you own!
