The first week of Liptember is nearly over and I’m proud to say that I managed to not only wear lippy but also photograph myself wearing said lippy each day. So far, so good.
How convenient that the new month began on a Monday! I’m a fanatic for detail and order, so I was chuffed that the first day of September began on a Monday. A perfect way to begin a month of raising money for women’s mental health research.
I started off with a nude lip to kick off the month. This is Avon’s classic lipstick in Frozen Rose, which is a pretty neutral shade with a slight gold shimmer.
By Tuesday I was feeling the need for a deeper shade. I went for another Avon classic lipstick in Terracotta. This felt like the perfect shade to team with my snake-print dress.
On Wednesday I listened to a bit of Strawberry Alarm Clock while I got dressed, which resulted in me reaching for this psychedelic-print dress. Needing something a bit more demure to pair with my winged eyeliner, I chose another Avon classic lipstick in Cosy Mauve.
I was feeling pretty in pink on Thursday with another Avon classic lipstick (again! I have a lot of these lippies because they’re awesome and also I used to work for Avon). This time I picked Instant Mocha, which is a soft pinky shade. I also nearly ran out of time to snap a picture before work, hence this grainy pic.
I knew ahead of time that Friday was going to be a massive day at work so I picked a fierce lip shade to give me strength. After a very long day at work, I felt like I had run a marathon, but at least my lippy was still in place! This is Avon’s Extra Lasting Lipstick in Rich Brown.
And finally Saturday. I wasn’t in the mood for a full face of makeup, but I swiped on a little pink lipstick so as not to fall off the Liptember wagon. This is Rimmel’s Vinyl Jelly lipstick in Be a Star. It’s actually much pinker than it looks in this picture.
One week down, three more to go! Let’s see if I can keep this up for the rest of the month.
