#lippyaday Challenge – Weeks 7, 8, 9 and 10

Day 43 – Fyrinnae lip lustre in Amplifier {these are discontinued by Fyrinnae which is a shame. They’re great as they have a liquid lipstick finish and Fyrinnae had some unique colours}

Day 44 – MAC cremesheen glass in Deelight {MAC’s cremesheen glasses are my favourite formula for gloss. Deelight is a nice nude with slight brown tones making it good for a MLBB}

Day 45 – Revlon lip butter in Macaroon {Purchased this in Asia and it’s become one of my favourite lip butters!}

Day 46 – MAC mattene lipstick in Classic Dame {Intense red-pink matte finish lipstick. Had to blot to make it wearable during the day time for me..}

Day 47 – Australis moisture intense lipstick in Coral Pink {Used to like this…not so much anymore. I find it too frosty for my liking now}

Day 48 – Covergirl TruShine lipstick in Watermelon Shine {Used to love this beautiful muted hot pink shade until I discovered other lipsticks}

Day 49 – Chanel glossimer in #09 {Pretty peachy glosss. I’m not sure if I understand the hype about these Glossimers though}

Day 50 – MAC cremesheen glass in Boy Bait {Great nude gloss if the occasion ever calls for one!}

Day 51 – Australis pout paste in Love Bites {Review coming soon on these pout pastes}

Day 52 – Revlon colorburst lipstick in Blush {Yet another MLBB shade; a bit on the nude side though}

Day 53 – MAC lipstick in Strawbaby

Day 54 – MAC lipstick in Rebel {Intense, beautiful plummy colour. Perfect vampy shade for winter!}

Day 70 – MAC cremesheen glass in Double Dare

#lippyaday Challenge – Week 2

Hi, my name is Julie and I am addicted to purchasing too many of the same shades of lip products.

Week 2 of #lippyaday, I unconsciously used a lot of rosy-berry shades. Whoops!

From left to right, top to bottom:
Day 8 – Revlon Red Velvet lip butter {I love my lip butters but they’ve been neglected so this was a good excuse to bring them out to play}
Days 9 and 10 – Arbonne Raisin and Brown Sugar lip polishes*
Day 11 – Revlon Lollipop lip butter
Day 12 – Avon Suede (?) {Found this in my samples stash. It’s a brown-cinnamon shade so not really my shade but the texture was nice}
Day 13 – MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick {One of my favourites. It’s a nice soft coral-red, perfect for those too scared to wear red!}
Day 14 – Burt’s Bees Rhubarb lip shimmer {Love the shade but not the scent. I hate anything peppermint and this had a peppermint scent and had a cooling sensation on the lips}

#lippyaday Challenge – Week 1

One of my favourite bloggers, Norlin, came up with a lipstick a day challenge after she was organising her stash and realised how much lip products she had. Sound familiar?If so, get on this challenge! She’s even got a great giveaway going on for the most creative picture (ends 30 March 2013).

I’ve been a bit late in joining the challenge but have completed 2 weeks of it already. Here’s a summary of week 1 (if you follow me on Instagram -@beauty_snippets – you may have already seen these):
