Well, I had to didn't I? grin Today I'm wearing W7 Viva La Berry in Berry Nice, which is a pinkish toned berry shade.

Yey! New thread! I can't break away from nars audacious 'Greta' at the moment. I'm in love with it. Bright neutral fuscia with a special kick that I can't quite put my finger on.

Thanks for new thread Sapphire grin I was the OP from the January Lipstick Challenge thread. I had stomach bug earlier in the week so no lippy for the past couple of days. Today is actually my last day of the January challenge. Its been fun! I usually pick out the clothes I will be wearing the next day and then choose make up after that so its been good doing it the other way around.

Today I'm wearing MAC Relentlessly Red. How I adore the colour, how I hate the formula- insanely drying! I'm wearing a NYX lipliner underneath though which is nice and creamy, and its behaving so far. I applied at 7am and its now nearly 1pm and the colour has barely faded. I think that RR and Lady Danger are the only two MAC lipsticks I will never be without - the colours are stunning

I'm definitely going to investigate some NARS lipsticks after looking at the lovely colours mentioned on the previous thread

Skipped a few days though I did do yesterday, today is a Bobbi Brown in Brownie. I like the colour but my goodness, it's drying after all my L'oreal and Boots Moisture Drench.

I think I am now all done with all my lipsticks but I may join in going through my cycle of eye makeup if that's OK?
I have vast, vast quantities of nude eyeliner/stick style eye makeup, plus some palettes I never really use.
If you have ever seen that tutorial for making one eye look bigger and one smaller - my eyes are the ones that need to be made to look bigger. In spades.

Fell of the make up band wagon as I was trying too much all at once and looked to much like Coco the Clown.

So back just to lippy to see what works. Bought a Maybelline Colour Elixir in Raspberry Rhapsody. The bees knees!

A lovely new thread. I love my Matte lip fluids but they do cake up a bit. You really need to keep you're eye on them!

waves to everyone

Today's lipstick is a Lipstick Queen crayon in Thriller. Nice red, though I think I have better....

Waves back

Wearing a Soap &Glory lipstick in perfect day. Gorgeous formula but looks quite dated in a russet sparkle. Going to use it up as part of another thread then treat myself to more liquid lipsticks as love the matte look.

BubblesDarling Thu 02-Feb-17 15:09:39

Yay new thread! High fives Sapphire. Waves to all

BubblesDarling Thu 02-Feb-17 15:39:42

I started off wearing CT Sexy Sienna. Wasn't feeling it. Switched to MJ Eat Cake. Bloody love it. Feels moisturising & good colour pay off. Warm pink.

Yesterday I wore Chanel Nude jumbo lip crayon. So easy to apply. Pleased I used my Boots points on it!

No spend 2017 is going well for me.

I'm wearing my new favourite Mac colour - cosmo. A lovely nude, not too dark, not to pale, not shimmery, not matte, not too pink, not too orange grin

I've decided I'm only wearing Mac or Lipstick Queen this year.

Maybe Nars.

Oh what the hell, I will be reading this thread with interest. Thank you January and February OPs grin

<bows to everyone> Thanks Bubbles!

Lippy update, the last Viva La Berries lipstick I wore I didn't like the formula of, it just didn't feel right, although I loved the colour. This one however is lovely. It feels like a lip balm and the colour is gorgeous. Yay!

SapphireSeptember Thu 02-Feb-17 17:45:41

Here's a review of the entire collection.

Dulcimena Thu 02-Feb-17 17:48:06

Very happy this is continuing into February, ty Sapphire

Today is L'oreal JLo's Nude - also called "barely greige" confused. Quite like the colour, not so much the texture or strong fragrance.

SapphireSeptember Thu 02-Feb-17 18:39:59

Urban Decay, Smashbox and Nars lippies are definitely on my 'Must Buy' list this year.

maggiethemagpie Thu 02-Feb-17 18:42:43

I just got the new Chanel lip crayon in Cassis. It's quite a deep plum, quite vampy but it blots to a good stain.

I somehow convinced myself against my better judgement to part with £28 quid for it. Real Devil and Angel on my shoulder moment. Devil won.

It's good, but I'm not sure it's worth £28. Oh well!

Where stocks Marc Jacobs lipsticks? I'm intrigued.

loveslipstick Thu 02-Feb-17 19:56:46

John Lewis sell Marc Jacobs. I have seen it in store.

Today I am wearing Lord & Berry Maxi Matte Lip Crayon in Intimacy

SapphireSeptember Thu 02-Feb-17 20:19:45

I've just put on Catrice Graphic Grace Powdery Lips in Dimensional Design. Wow! It's bright orange, and matte, and has teeny tiny gold shimmers. I just got the parcel today. grin There's pictures of two of the lipsticks here if you don't mind it being all in German. (I got all three...Can't wait to try the rest!)

FrustratedFrugal Thu 02-Feb-17 20:26:36

A shiny new thread! 💄💄💄
I am still wearing Max Factor Chilli hoping that it will be gone in a week!

I've arrived home from a long day at school (options eve) to 'glamorous red' by maybelline (eBay) and I love it star can't wait to see it in daylight...

BeMorePanda Thu 02-Feb-17 21:52:28

oooh hello!

I'm rather reformed these days and wear very little make up but pretty much always lippy. Ive even given up wearing mascara which I never thought would ever happen.

But I really LOVE lipstick.

I'm really in love with these Revlon crayon things these days - Colourburst. I have about 5 of them. I rarely do "formal' lipstick now.

leedy Fri 03-Feb-17 11:53:09

Soap & Glory Berry Kissable today, which I LOVE. It's a beautiful matte berry shade, similar quality/non-dryingness to Charlotte Tilbury at half the price, super pigmented.

Dulcimena Fri 03-Feb-17 11:59:05

Ilia In Paradise - sheer peachy-coral. I do like this one and it'll be lovely in the summer. Doesn't last long though.

I may have ordered another Surratt lipslique blush
