A Lipstick a Day Challenge Part 2

Hey guys!
I’m here today to share with you week two of my lipstick a day challenge!  I’ve made a video about my week and will break it down below the video if you want to read about it instead of watching!

On day 1 I wore MAC Lustre Lipstick in Shy Shine.  I thought this shade was no longer sold because I couldn’t find it on the MAC website, but it is still at Nordstrom.com so I guess it’s still available! Yay!  I really enjoy this lipstick, the finish is good and it is a great everyday color for me.

On day 2 I wore the Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Sandwash Pink.  This smelled very strong and had a thick texture on my lips.  It is pinker than I expected as well because I think I got it in a deluxe sample nude lipstick promotion from Sephora (so I expected it to be more nude).  It is okay, and I actually used it a little the next day to tone down my darker lipstick before an appointment I wanted a lighter color on for and it worked for that.  Definitely not as good as I would expect for the price.
On day 3 I wore one of the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Daydream.  This is a matte x formula, and other ones have done better for me than this one.  It is a bit dry on my lips, but not terrible.  My main complaint with this one is that the product is slightly off from the angle of the packaging so it is awkward to apply.  It is called a “plummy brown”, and I liked the color a lot.  It had good lasting time and very little transfer.
On day 4 I wore the Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Suede Splash.  This is another good everyday color with a satin finish.  I like the “warm chocolate color” and the formula.  My complaint with this one is the packaging.  It is bulky and takes some effort to roll the product up.
On day 5 I wore one of the Colourpop Crème Lippie Stix in Sure Thing.  It has super cute hearts on the cap and I’m a sucker for cute packaging.  I also like the finish of this and the color is another good everyday color.  It is a bit lighter than the suede splash or shy shine colors though, so it does add in some variety.
On day 6 I wore the MAC Retro Matte in Pandemonium that came in a set.  It was super dry and patchy when I applied it, but it did come with a lipliner that I plan to use the next time I wear it to see if it helps.  My lips haven’t been the most moisturized lately, which could have been a factor as well.  I do like the color a lot and when I put a gloss on top it evened it out a bit so I think it’s worth it to keep for now.
On day 7 I wore the MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Origami Orange.  This is a sheer lipstick with a bit of orange.  I like it a lot and the formula is great.  I bought this on sale from the MAC “goodbyes” section so I don’t think it is around anymore… but it is pretty nice! I also snuck in a second lipstick in the form of a liquid lipstick from NYX.  It was the lip lingerie in exotic, and it is one I’ve liked before.  I noticed it did stay slightly sticky on my lips though so I want to play around with my other liquid lipsticks and see if this one is worth keeping or not.
Running breakdown of current lipsticks:
Day 1: Bite Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Léché – Like a lot and would repurchase or try other colors
Day 2: Colourpop x Hello Kitty Konnichiwa – Okay, keep wearing but no repurchase
Day 3: Nars x Sarah Moon Matte Lipstick in Indecent Proposal – Would repurchase immediately and other colors in formula
Day 4: Urban Decay Sheer Liar Sheer Revolution Lipstick – Like a lot and would repurchase, but sad packaging is different now
Day 5: Colourpop x Hello Kitty Let’s Play – Would not repurchase, want to try wearing it again though and see how it looks with different makeup look (I think it was too bold for the minimal makeup I was wearing that day).
Day 6: Colourpop Parker – Would repurchase
Day 7: Colourpop x Alexis Ren Blotted Lip in Deja Vu – Like and will wear but no repurchase
Day 8: MAC Shy Shine – Great! Would repurchase!
Day 9: Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink – Want to try again, but would not repurchase as of now. Don’t think I have a dupe for it though in my current collection.
Day 10: Colourpop Lippie Stix in Daydream – Like a lot and would probably repurchase if I had free shipping or a promo code 🙂
Day 11: Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Suede Splash – Like a lot, would repurchase if packaging was updated (otherwise I’m okay with other everyday lipsticks).
Day 12: Colourpop Creme Lippie Stix in Sure Thing – Would try other shades in same formula.
Day 13: MAC Retro Matte in Pandemonium – Would not repurchase, need to try with liner.
Day 14: MAC Huggable Lipcolor in Origami Orange – Would repurchase if still existed, and will definitely use up.
Day 14.5: NYX Lip Lingerie in Exotic – Want to compare to other liquid lipsticks before getting rid of this one.
