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.

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

Day 1

Covergirl Colourlicious Lipstick Spellbound 325 

This medium pink has a vibrant fuchsia hue with a long lasting formula that feels weightless on the lips. Very comfortable on the lips all day and this shade Spellbound is pigmented which means less reapplying throughout the day.

Day 2

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Pink Blush 

This milkshake pink has a pastel hue and a rich, creamy texture. Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipsticks are affordable, long wearing and one of my favourite drug store lipsticks. This is my favourite light pink shade from the #Rimmel range.

Day 3

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip Ponyland 

Ponyland is a metallic lavender lip colour which is pigmented like a lipstick with a glossy finish like a lip gloss. Very comfortable on the lips, this wearable shimmery purple shade is magical and fun to wear.

Day 4

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Kate Moss 45

This pretty nude shade is part of the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick collection. 45 is my favourite shade from Kate's nude lipstick collection. The perfect shade to pair with a smokey eye.

Day 5

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Vintage Pink 

Rimmel's moisture renew formula is very hydrating on the lips and has SPF 20, so it's perfect for winter! The finish is very glossy for a lipstick. This shade Vintage Pink is a dusty mauve. 

Day 6

Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick Social Butterfly

Chi Chi Viva La Diva lipstick is creamy and soft on the lips. This lipstick formula is one of my all time favourites! This shade Social Butterfly is a soft baby pink which is perfect for a pretty natural makeup look.

Day 7

Younique Moonstruck Opulence Lipstick Loaded 

Younique lipstick is rich, highly pigmented and long lasting. Make a statement wearing Loaded a deep burgundy mauve shade. 

Day 8

DB Cosmetics Moisturising Lipstick Perfect Pink 

Designer Brands moisturising lipstick is very creamy, lightweight and comfortable on the lips. I prefer this formula over their matte long wear formula, because it contains Vitamin E and aloe vera which is great for dry lips during winter. Perfect Pink is my favourite shade.

Day 9 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Kate Moss 20 

This collection of Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss features intense bold colours with 8 hour long wear. This shade "20" is a deep fuchsia shade with looks pretty on fair, medium and deep skin.
