A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

This Week’s Lips #2

on September 3, 2016

Hello again!

I feel like I’ve been a blogging machine lately! I went from 2-3 posts a month to 3 posts in a week. Not sure what happened, but apparently I have a bit more to say these days!

So here is the second installment of my weekly review of the shades I wore over the last several days. The last post featured Monday-Friday – I really only used a lip balm over the weekend. I was home sick Monday and didn’t leave my couch much less put on lipstick… which is why we start with:

Tuesday – Perricone MD No Lipgloss Lipgloss – it says it is not a lipgloss, yet it is. So sneaky. It actually is a lightweight, hydrating, neutral pink gloss. The color does not fade or feather and it keeps my lips feeling great for hours.

Wednesday – NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm – I just revisited this for the first time in months. The formula is a bit heavy, but it stays on for hours. It is a peachy, orangy pink with a lot of shimmer – it seems like a lot of shine at first but wears beautifully throughout the day.

Thursday – NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien and Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain – these NARS pencils last forever… I have barely made a dent in this one and just sharpened it for the first time in the year that I’ve had it.. This is (yet another) light pink color – very much a my lips but better shade. This might be one of my favorite formulas out there – really smooth and stays on for 4-5 hours. I wanted to test out this Manna Kadar gloss sample so added a light coat on top. The colors match perfectly, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the formula – it is a bit dry. I will try it again as a base.

Friday Day – Tom Ford Lip Color in Nude Vanille – Tom Ford nailed nude lipstick shades. This is a very pigmented peachy-nude. A couple swipes provides full-coverage for 4-5 hours. This does tend to settle in lip lines, so it helps to freshen it up with a clear gloss or balm after morning coffee. 🙂

Friday Night – Tarteist Lip Paint in Rave – this is hands down the boldest color I’ve ever worn! I wanted to give this a true test and wear out for some drinks with friends. I applied one coat, cleaned up the edges and then filled in a couple more spots. After two glasses of wine and lots of talking, Rave hardly faded and had zero feathering. There was one light spot from using a straw, but it overall didn’t budge in 4 hours – it was actually really hard to remove! The swatch is a bit deceiving – it looked very charcoal grey on my lips. But I have to say that I LOVE this color and formula.


Saturday – Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche in Thistle – Bite lists this as a “mauve infused taupe” but this leans a bit more taupe-grey on me. Much like the Tarte Rave, this is another shade that I wouldn’t typically wear but really, really like! In typical Amuse Bouche fashion, this is super hydrating and lasts for hours. The pigmentation is excellent and a little goes a long way!
