Hello lipstick junkies and a very Happy New Year to you all! (And a new decade!)

So, the point of this 'challenge' for any newbies is to go through your lipstick stash and wear a different colour everyday! Pictures are useful (although not mandatory) although colour descriptions are good too! Definitely post brand and shade name/number please! smile

(So many exclamation marks, can you tell I'm excited? I love this, it's something fun during a dreary month.)

I will begin, I'm wearing L'Oreal matte lipstick in 'Stay the night'. I think it was a Boots exclusive or freebie or something (I got it on eBay.) It's a purple-y wine shade and very comfortable to wear.

I was hoping this thread would pop up! Haven’t done my make up yet as I’ve only left the house for a run so far. Will update soon with today’s lippy.

I so need this. I think I have enough lipsticks to get me through to Easter and I’m terrible at wearing them

Here’s mine. Primark lustre in rosewood mauve. One of my faves. I think it’s supposed to be a MAC dupe but not sure of what shade. Dodgy selfie of hastily applied lipstick!

nice colour @princessbear80
will post mine later - when I work out what it's called (it's a reclining gel one, but the name on the bottom is in tiny letters)
but love this thread. I used to have about two lippies, then I started following this thread, now I definitely have enough to do one for each day of the month grin

I love lipstick and have been better at actually putting it on in recent months as opposed to lining them all up and gazing at them adoringly.
Today I'm wearing Lovecraft by Kat Von D. It's a beautiful dusky pink/almost lavender shade. I love Kat Von D lipsticks, they last really well and the colours are always really opaque.

Wearing Charlotte Tilbury JK Magic around the house. Not my usual colour was quite pale but giving it a go as DH bought it for me.

Fantastic idea. I'll start tomorrow smile

I'm so pleased to see this thread!
I didn't manage the lipstick challenge last year as I had a newborn dc. I've been looking forward to rejoining for 2020!
I wore my standard lippie of choice today, MAC Velvet Teddy. Will be more adventurous tomorrow 😆

I'm going to join you! Starting tomorrow.

Oooo is the Primark lippy any good? Does it have much staying power? I'm going to start wearing lippy from tomorrow but only have two colours!

The primark one last better than some of my more expensive ones eg Bobbi brown.

Today I’m trying out a Christmas gift. Rouge Dior ultra care liquid in 750 blossom. Feels lovely but totally wrong for my colouring unfortunately. As I’m just staying at home with DS it doesn’t really matter.

princessbear80 Thu 02-Jan-20 08:53:40

It actually looks much more orange on me in real life than in the photo.

Lucked Thu 02-Jan-20 08:58:22

Oh goodie. I forgot about this and didn’t wear anything yesterday. Will get on it today.

currentlyavailable Thu 02-Jan-20 09:04:49

I'm wearing it today! Unsure it's my colour but heading to primark to check out theirs!

AlwaysOnAbloodyDiet Thu 02-Jan-20 10:45:39

Primark lipsticks are fantastitic. I have a red that lasts all day/night.

I'm wearing my favourite lipstick today - Inglot Rouge à Lèvres 205 (I hate taking selfies)!

Deathraystare Thu 02-Jan-20 13:00:39

I am afraid I have worn the same colour for a couple of weeks!

Cannot take a photo but it is a mini one - Bare Minerals Moxie Say the Word. A kind of pinkie nude/pinkie beige. Warm anyway. Not normally a beige person as look like death not even warmed up! However this is on the warm side and one of those ok with everything though I prefer corals, warm red and bright but not blue pink normally. It was a mini I got in a set.

Deathraystare Thu 02-Jan-20 13:02:48

Not sure if it looks like this or not!

currentlyavailable Thu 02-Jan-20 13:40:44

Right I've stocked up on Primark lipstick in various colours because I'm not actually good at judging what will suit me!

KnucklesMcGinty Thu 02-Jan-20 13:46:48

May I join? I normally just slap on some Clinique almost lipstick or Burt's bees tinted lip balm as I'm running out the door.
This colour doesn't suit me at all, but it has great staying power. It's Laura Mercier power velour extreme matte lipstick. I think I bought it because it was on offer.

Oooh I remember this last year. Fab! I’m currently obsessed by lisa Eldridge lipsticks but def up for it again to go through my stash.
