A New Day

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

This Week’s Lips #15

on October 15, 2017

Oh hey… look what’s back!

I finally started tracking my weekly lip shades again. It has been a crazy summer and I feel like I can get back to what really matters…. LIPSTICK. Right? Right!

I have been changing it up a lot lately – high and low, bold and subtle, matte and sheer… it’s been all over the place! This week, I feel like I should title this “a variation on the color mauve.” But, as we all know, just because the colors are similar doesn’t mean they are anything alike!

Monday – Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Fauxmance – I believe this has been discontinued… what a shame. These Benefit glosses are lightweight, and really well pigmented. Fauxmance is a pretty peach shade with just a hint of shimmer.

Tuesday – Bite Amuse Bouche Liquified Lip in Chutney – I wasn’t so sure if Bite could pull of a long-lasting liquid lipstick. The regular Amuse Bouche shades are lovely, but don’t have an exceptionally long wear time. I don’t mind being wrong! Chutney lasted several hours with only touch ups needed throughout the day. Now this transfers a LOT, but not so much that it wears down on your lips.

Wednesday – Pat McGrath MatteTrance Lipstick in 1995 – I felt as though I was immune to Pat McGrath’s seductive marketing ploys. Nope. My cousin purchased a couple and after I made one swatch, I was on the board the mothership. Damn her! This is the best matte lipstick I have ever worn – it applies evenly and is so smooth. This formula is so comfortable and long wearing.

Thursday – Tom Ford Lips and Boys in Guillermo – this is no stranger to my regular routine. Just a lovely pink-brown shade!

Friday – Bite High Pigment Pencil in Rhubarb – this might be the perfect Friday shade. High shine, well pigmented, medium wear time and goes with pretty much everything. I need easy by the end of the week.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have an amazing week!
