I was flicking through the selfies I’ve taken this week for Liptember and I realised that I’ve worn a shade of red each day this week. How rad is that? Let’s take a look at my red rainbow of lippies from this past week.
On Sunday I got dressed up to go with my family to Gracebrook winery. I picked a deep wine lippie: Rouge Sinner from Lipstick Queen. I love the Lipstick Queen Sinner lipstick for days out because they don’t budge and you barely need to touch them up.
I swept my hair up into an Elsa-inspired braid. My outfit began fairly simple but I just kept adding accessories until I had the right amount of pizzazz going on.
On Monday I opted for a sheer wash of colour with Lipstick Queen’s Medieval lipstick. It’s the prettiest lip stain with just a little hint of red.
Tuesday was grey and cold. I paired my wiggle dress with a pin-up red lipstick from Savvy. It was nice to have a bit of colour to counteract the yucky weather.
On Wednesday I painted my pout with Lady Bug from M.A.C. This lippie was a gift from Miss Fairchild, who is running her own (wildly successful) liptember campaign.
On Thursday I wore Perfect Russet by Estee Lauder. It’s the perfect lippy for pairing with pretty blush and a coy smile.
This week has been a rough one for me, mental-health wise. Work has been extremely demanding and I’ve had a couple of days where I was ready to throw in the towel. My anxiety has been creeping up and jumping out at me at the most inappropriate moments. I just feel drained and burnt out. I need a break, but none is forthcoming. Oh well. I’m trying really hard to just keep going, to take time and lay some boundaries for myself.
I must say that working on this Liptember campaign has really given me a lift. It’s given me the motivation to put the effort into my appearance each day which is a good thing. It’s helped to spark my creativity and given me a boost.
Also, I made some sales from my esty store, which is awesome because some of those funds will contribute to my Liptember total. It’s looking a bit dire at the moment, and I don’t think I’m going to reach my goal. But if you’ve got a few dollars to spare, it would be awesome if you could help out:
– Firstly, you can donate to my Liptember page. All donations over $2 are tax deductible and every dollar counts. It doesn’t matter if you donate $1 or $100, I’ll appreciate every single donation.
– You can also purchase your official Liptember lipstick for just $4.99. You can buy your lippy at any Chemist Warehouse store. For the first time, Chemist Warehouse are now offering the Liptember lippies on their online store with international shipping available. How exciting!
– If you’re really keen, you can sign up and start fundraising yourself. It’s super easy to set up your fundraising page and begin raising funds for this awesome cause.
– I’ll be donating 10% of every sale from my etsy store to Liptember. I’ve got all kinds of hand-crafted items and e-books available. I’m also happy to create a custom-made to-order item just for you.
Every donation counts, so dig deep and give just a little if you can. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support.
