    Day 23 

    OXX Studio Lip Gloss 01 Piper 

    OXX Studio Lip Gloss in shade 01 Piper is a peachy pink liquid lip with an opaque and glossy finish. This shade is pigmented enough to wear as a lipstick. Plus it's only $4, so it's very affordable. 

    OXX Studio is a super affordable cosmetic brand exclusive to Kmart Australia stores!

    Day 24

    W7 Cosmetics Lipstick Neon Purple 

    W7 Liptember lipstick in Neon Purple is a deep vibrant purple. This on trend shade is very similar to Pantone's 2018 colour of the year Ultra Violet. Take a walk on the wild side with this W7 Lipstick.

    Day 25

    OXX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick + Lipliner  Pink

    This Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lipliner set from OXX Cosmetics is only $5. This shade is a dusky peachy pink which looks very brown on my lips. The lipliner is a soft pretty pink! This is no Kylie lipkit, but for a cheap drug store brand it's good. My only wish for this product is a shade name! No where on the box or product could I find the shade name - and I looked! I did find this product on the Kmart website, so I think this shade is simply called Pink.

    OXX Cosmetics is available at Kmart Australia 

    Day 26 

    DB Cosmetics Longwear Lipstick Sugar Blossom 

    DB longwear lipstick is a traditional bullet style lipstick with a long wearing matte formula. Sugar Blossom is a pretty dusty pink shade which I love, however I don't love this lipstick's matte finish. When I wear this shade, I always add a lipgloss over the top. Today's gloss is Purfectly Chic by Kate Heussler Lip Gloss in Swiss Alps. It's a clear gloss with lots of shimmer and high shine!

    Day 27 

    Napoleon Perdis DéVine Goddess Lipstick Aphrodite

    NP DéVine Goddess Lipstick in Aphrodite is a classic red. Napoleon's richly pigmented signature lipstick is sophisticated glamour at its best. "When in doubt wear red." This timeless shade is classy and chic.  

    Day 28

    Perfectly Chic Lip Gloss Miami Nights 

    This super glossy lip is thanks to Perfectly Chic Lip Gloss by Kate Heussler in Miami Nights. This pretty peach lip gloss shade is super shimmery and glossy. It's one of my favourite lips glosses because you can wear it alone and it always looks gorgeous.

    Day 29 

    ulta3 Moisturising Lipstick green magic

    Ulta3 moisturising lipstick in the shade green magic looks green but transforms into a pretty pink on the lips! This magical lipstick reacts to the PH level in your skin, so everyone gets a pretty shade unique to them! For me this lipstick is a very vibrant pink and it's super long lasting on the lips! I bought this lipstick for fun, but I was actually surprised how good it was! And it's only $4.25!

    Day 30 

    Ben Nye Lipstick Marilyn Red LS 33

    Ben Nye was a Makeup Director for 20th Century Fox during the old Hollywood film industry and worked as Marilyn's makeup artist on many of her films. Ben Nye Lipstick in Marilyn Red LS33 is his tribute to Marilyn Monroe! This is the perfect lipstick to achieve Marilyn's signature red lips!

    30 Lipsticks in 30 Days 
    June 2018

    30 Lipsticks Challenge: To wear a different lip product everyday for 30 days. 

    Day 11

    Purfectly Chic by Kate Johnson Lip Gloss Cherish

    For days like today (feeling under the weather with a winter cold) I kept my makeup simple and this Cruelty Free Beauty Lip Gloss by Kate Johnson is perfect worn alone like I have today, or over your fave lipstick. This shade Cherish is a gorgeous shimmery cherry colour with super high shine and wearing it always brightens my day!

    Day 12 

    Designer Brands Moisturising Lipstick Cherry Love

    DB Cosmetics moisturising lipstick is very creamy, lightweight and hydrating. This shade Cherry Love is a bold fuchsia and always makes a statement.

    Day 13 

    Australis Colour Inject Lipstick Mash Up

    Australis colour inject mineral lipstick in Mash Up is a bold deep plum purple which is moisturising and long lasting on the lips. This lipstick formula contains Kakadu Plum which is the world's highest known source of Vitamin C.

    Day 14 

    Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip Dream Castle 

    This limited edition Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Dream Castle from the Colourpop x My Little Pony collab is a metallic fuchsia with blue, violet and gold glitter. It's super sparkly on the lips and once the lip gloss fades it leaves the lips with a deep fuchsia stain.

    Day 15 

    Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick Pink Me Love Me 

    Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick is a very smooth, soft formula and slides over the lips for comfortable lightweight feeling all day. Unlike a traditional bullet lipstick, this twist up slim stick makes application a breeze! This shade 100 Pink Me Love Me is a pretty soft pink. The Only 1 lipstick has a floral scent upon application.

    Day 16 

    Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick Hess

    Napoleon Perdis DéVine Goddess Lipstick in Hess is the ideal nude lipstick to pair with a dramatic smokey eye. This lipstick is creamy, luxurious and perfect for creating timeless beauty looks. One of my all time favourite nude lipsticks because it has a light pink undertone and beautiful pearl finish.

    Eyes: Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions palette

    Day 17 

    Lancôme Matte Shaker Kiss Me Cherie 

    Lancôme Matte Shaker is a bold highly pigmented matte liquid lipstick that glides onto the lips with ease and dries matte. I usually avoid matte lipstick, but honestly this is the most comfortable, most perfect matte liquid lipstick. The precise lip cushion applicator makes application easy and the lipstick is so comfortable, light weight and long lasting - it truly feels weightless on the lips! Kiss Me Cherie is a deep red, think Marilyn Monroe. My absolute favourite matte lipstick!

    Day 18 

    Savvy Minerals by Young Living Uptown Girl Lipstick

    Young Living's new range of natural makeup includes this Lipstick in Uptown Girl. A gorgeous mauve shade which is beautiful on the lips. Made with all natural ingredients and moisturising botanicals Savvy Minerals Lipstick is good for you and the planet.

    Day 19 

    Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Asia 077 

    Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Asia (077) is one of my favourite deep nude shades. This is not your average brown lipstick, it has a very pretty mauve undertone and it's perfect for your everyday makeup. I love this shade because I can make it darker with lipliner and lighten it with lipgloss! 

    Day 20 

    M.A.C Lipstick Frost Lipstick Angel

    On Wednesdays we wear PINK! My lipstick today is MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel. This is a soft baby pink shade with a frost finish. MAC Lipstick is very creamy, so it's perfect for winter! If you love millennial pink, this shade is perfect for you.

    HUDA BEAUTY: Smokey Obsessions Palette

    Smokey Obsessions

    Every woman loves a smokey eye, right? 
    Having the right eyeshadows to create the perfect smokey eye is essential. Luckily Huda Beauty have created the Smokey Obsessions palette, to help you master the smokey eye. 

    This palette combines 4 mattes with 5 metallic shimmers and includes an intense black, 4 shades of brown and shimmery shades of champagne, gold and silver. 

    Since purchasing this palette last month from a Sephora store, I have enjoyed using it everyday! What I love about this eyeshadow palette is it's versatility. I can create neutral shimmer eyes, golden smokey eye look, black and silver smokey eyes, a natural brown everyday look. It's also a great eyeshadow palette to create a soft daytime look in the morning and then build it up to a smokey look for night. 

    Gold smokey eye - Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Palette

    I purchased my Smokey Obsessions palette from Sephora for $48. When it comes to getting your hands on Huda Beauty in Australia, it's much easier to purchase her eyeshadow palettes in store at your local Sephora, than order on her website and pay for shipping to Australia. 

    I love the size of this palette. It's mini compared to Huda's rose gold or desert dusk palette but the eyeshadows are the same size, so it's great value and perfect for your purse or beauty bag. 

    Application Tip: 
    The metallic shimmery shades in this palette are very creamy and extremely metallic. The formula of these shadows is very different to any other eyeshadow I have tried before. These shimmery shades are incredible and best applied with your finger tips. Application with an eyeshadow brush is not as affective, and not something I recommend. The colour payoff is much better when applied with your finger. 

    I usually apply the matte shades first with an eyeshadow brush and then dap the metallic shades on top with my fingers. 

    In this review I discuss the eyeshadow shades including swatches, discuss the price and packaging and give my overall thoughts of this palette.
