'Lipstick of the week'

Hello everyone! I thought I’d publish a post explaining another new series to my blog - this time a weekly one! Since deciding that I won’t be purchasing any more new makeup for the next 8 months, more on that here, it’s now time to figure out the best way to use my large and lovely collection. Now when it comes to lip products I am very much a neutrals girl. I LOVE my pinky,brown toned nudes and they’re the colours that are most in my comfort zone. I recently wrote down every single lip product that I own and around 70% of them are all in the nude/neutral family. However I do have a fair amount of lipsticks which are not ‘me’ at all. Usually this is because I’ve picked them up on special offer or ordered a bunch of things online and not checked the shades properly, very clever I am aware.

I’ve decided to introduce ‘lipstick of the week’ which will serve two functions. Firstly it will force me to work with a lipstick for seven days, which is more than enough time to figure out my opinion of it shade wise as well as consistency and formula. By the end of the week I’ll have a well rounded opinion of the product and hopefully I can write you up a thorough report back! If that lipstick just hasn’t worked out for me, I’ll then pass it on or throw it out. So secondly I’ll be condensing my collection and giving each product a thorough testing. Why keep things if you know you won’t use them? It’s a total waste of space, which could be utilised a lot better.

I’m very excited to push myself out of my comfort zone, something I don’t do at all when it comes to the lips! Also despite not purchasing any new makeup, by systematically going through my collection it’ll feel like I have bought new products because I’m actually using them all for a good amount of time and there is just something so fulfilling about that for me. I really hope you’ll enjoy these posts, starting with Sleek’s Matte Me in Birthday Suit, coming at you very soon!

P.S I’ll also be talking about various lipliners here and there in these posts.

What is your favourite shade of lipstick to wear? Do you own far too many like me??
