I’ve never counted how many tubes of lipstick I own, but it’s a number that truly qualifies as a collection, not just “a lot”. As a collector of all things makeup, I think that’s pretty rad. However, I do find that for the most part I tend to stick to the same handful of lipstick shades most of the time which leaves a whole boatload of lipstick unworn and under appreciated. Sad, sad stuff man. So this week I got a bee in my bonnet to make a point of wearing every lipstick that I own at least once (yes, there are sad lonely tubes of lipstick in my drawer that I have never worn, I have no excuse). This project will serve three main purposes:
Actually wear the things I’ve purchased. Weird right?
Give me an opportunity to rediscover some old loves that I haven’t worn in a while.
Weed out my collection and toss things that are too old or uncomfortable or just plain bad products.
Now that I have rambled a bit, let’s take a look at what lipsticks I tried out this week!
The best part of my lipstick picks for this week, is that not a single product in the bunch was drying! I would even venture to say that some of these were slightly moisturizing (which I almost NEVER believe to be true of lipstick). If you’re prone to really dry lips, first, I totally feel your pain, but second, check out the Revlon Super Lustrous line. At the very least, they won’t leave your lips more dry than when you started.
I hope this was actually interesting. I enjoyed wearing some products that I hadn’t actually worn before. Do you have lip products that you’ve never actually worn out of the house? Hopefully I’m not the only one!

That seems like a fun project! And maybe a bit scary… I don’t think I have any truly unwearable shades, but for example Bh cosmetics Vixen can be difficult to pull off. Plum perfect is gorgeous btw!
It is fun, I highly recommend it! I do have a few shades that I’m kind of giving the side eye to though. I have a sparkly blue lip gloss that I’m really frightened of but maybe I can figure out a way to use it?
Plum Perfect IS gorgeous! And cheap!
