My Week In Lipsticks

Whew! This week is finally over and done with. For the first time in 2017, I feel like time went pretty slow. Nonetheless, I'm happy that it's finally the weekend and I can relax and take time for myself. Today, I'll be recapping my week in lipsticks. I've always seen other beauty bloggers doing this type of post, but I never really had the chance to do it because most of the time I'd be home and would only use a lip balm. This week has been pretty busy and I was able to wear something different every day of the week, so I thought this was the perfect time to finally do my take on this post.

On Monday, nothing really special happened, but I did have work. One of the things I like about my workplace is that makeup has no limit (kinda), so I get to experiment quite a bit. Every time I work, I try to use something different. That day, I pulled out an oldie but a goodie - the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Glace. I like a lipstick that's going to be comfortable throughout my shift, that I don't need to re-apply often, and this fits the description well!

On Tuesday, I attended the Revlon #ColorStay All Day Event (a post on that is coming soon!). It was a pretty cool event and I even got to meet a new friend there - fyi, I'm very anti-social so this is a big thing for me LOL. The beautiful Gigi Gorgeous was also a special guest to that event, so that was fun. Anyways, I decided to opt for my new Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Brownie. It really is such a beautiful lipstick and the formula is just fab!

On Wednesday, we had a little family foodie day. My boyfriend, daughter and I ended up going to the mall (an asian mall - Torontonians know it better as Pacific Mall). At that mall, they sell phone cases for super cheap and my boyfriend wanted to get a new one, but he didn't find one that he liked, so all we did there was try some egg waffles haha. After that, we decided to try a cool ice cream spot. I think it's a Thai place, but it's those ice cream shops where they roll up the ice cream (horrible explanation). After that we got some savoury food which was needed after eating sweets all day, then did some grocery shopping - like I said, a foodie day. Anyways, I pulled out the KVD Bow N Arrow Liquid Lipstick this day to keep it nice and subtle.

Thursday was a rest day for me which means my lips get a break or some TLC - tender loving care. My absolute favourite lip treatment is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. I literally thank the beauty community every time I use this because this is the best thing I've ever tried. Before using this, my lips were always dry and cracked, but after using it my lips have showed a drastic improvement. I also introduced my boyfriend to this earlier this week and we went and bought him a tub for himself on the Wednesday.

Lastly, Friday. Friday was another work day for me so I looked in my makeup drawer and took a long moment before choosing which lipstick to rock. I actually pulled out my Naked Heat palette and created a kinda, but not-so dramatic smokey eye. I ended up pairing it with the Laneige Two Tone Lipstick in Cashmere Nude*. This was a perfect option as the lipstick did not take away from the smokey eye look. 

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.

What have you been wearing this week?
