30 Day Lipstick Challenge: Day 17 Pink Daisy

Hi Grimms ❤

Today I will continue to chip away at my 30 Day Lipstick Challenge. Eventually we will make it to 30 Days and when that magical moment happens I promise to start another ridiculous 30 Day Challenge that I will of course never finish in 30 Days. It’s that just something wonderful to look forward to?

I feel like this will become a GrimmGirl tradition!

Today’s lovely shade of lipstick is brought to you by Mally in their shade Pink Daisy as part of their H3 collection. I said lipstick but it would be more accurate to say lip gloss. Can you believe that I’m adding another lip gloss to the list? This does not happen very often but I have to say I’m really digging this look!

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I love a good pink color in spring/summer! I also am really digging the gloss of the whole affair. I kind of think it gives off a bit of a sexy vibe, don’t you? Kat Sade, Seductress at Large… BAHAHAHAHAHA! Something like that at least!

Here’s the thing I love about this color, anyone can pull it off! This shade of pink is a safe bet. It’s going to look good and it’s not a crazy shade that you’re going to be wary of wearing. I mean you just can’t go wrong with a sweet pink! Oh, and once again full disclosure I did use Jeffree Star’s Liquid Velour Matte Lipstick shade Dollparts as a lip liner.

30 Day Lipstick Challenge: Day 16 Deception

As God is my witness…

I will finish this Lipstick Challenge!
We are on “Day” 16 and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Seriously with all of the selfies I take on Instagram you’d think this would be a done deal. However never underestimate my ability to simply put things off. I will always rise to the challenge.

Today’s lipstick is brought to you by Nine Three Beauty! It’s a product that I haven’t reviewed on GrimmGirl yet, but I desperately need too. Not only do I need to add more Nine Three Beauty to the site but this is actually a really cool color!

I’m not sure if this picture does this color justice but it is a chocolate brown with a green/purple sheen to it! Does that sound a little weird? It might but I promise you it is very cool. Once again I can’t speak enough on the gratification you can get makeup wise by thinking a little outside of the box and trying something new.

I really enjoy Nine Three Beauty’s Deception Lip color. It’s uniqueness isn’t completely over the top so it’s one of those cool colors you can wear anywhere. You can be fun will being professional. If you’re someone that is a little too nervous to try something super bold a lipstick like this can be a really great compromise.

I hope you enjoy this color and it gives you something new to look for. You sadly cannot buy this exact color from Nine Three Beauty but I will provide the link below so you can check out some of their other products!

Lipstick Challenge Day 15: Crocodile Tears

Grimms…

It has become apparent to me that I totally suck at challenges, in the sense that I am in no way on the ball and consistent at posting. I know that like with my 30 Day Anime Challenge I will eventually finish but I thought I would just take a moment to say, “Please excuse my life.”

On the brightside look! I’m on “Day” 15, which means I am halfway through this challenge! Huzzah! Thank you all for sticking with me. I’d like to say that I will be more consistent in posting but let’s be real… That’s just a lie.

So here you have it Day 15 is brought to you by Jeffree Star Cosmetics and his shade Crocodile Tears. Get a load of all that green. Isn’t it magnificent? I am honestly in love with this dark green and I wear it out and about all the time. I mean I don’t wear it to work but basically everywhere else is up for grabs.

I know that it can be a little nerve-racking to wear such a bold color but I say if you like it go for it! Honestly I put off wearing bold colors for quite some time because I was more worried about what other people than I was about what I actually like. It is one thing not to want to wear a color of lipstick because it is not your style; it’s a completely different matter to not wear it because you think other people will be judging you.

So if there’s a bold color you’ve always wanted to try I say go for it! Honestly I think you will be surprised at home many people actually dig it, and for the people who don’t… Who cares! Trust me it’s much better to wear and dress the way you want than it is to try to meet other people’s expectations. At least if you always do what you want you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re comfortable in your own skin.

Thanks again for sticking around this challenge with me! If you have any interest in this particular shade of awesome you are out of luck! This was part of the limited edition holiday selection.

Sorry Grimms!

Lipstick Challenge Day 14: Lipstick Queen Time

Grimms….

I think it’s time I picked this Lipstick Challenge back up! Omgoodness what is it with me and challenges? I really do like to take my sweet time with these don’t I? Well at least I’m back on the horse so to speak.

We’re on Day 14 and at least I’m getting close to the half way point. Honestly I haven’t been on my A-Game when it comes to blogging at all lately! I swear the balance between work, life, and blogging is no joke. I thank you all for being so patient and supporting me regardless. You lot are the best!

Alright, for today’s lipstick it is actually a lipgloss, and correct me if I’m wrong but I believe this is the first lip gloss mention ever on GrimmGirl. I am actually not a huge gloss fan on principle. I mean I’ve never come across a “long-wear” gloss. It’s not built to stand up throughout the day. You know when you get a gloss you are going to be reapplying quite few times.

I’m Glossy! I’m the first girl to scream on the track. Hahaha who caught my reference?

So I actually got this gloss by Lipstick Queen on a bit of a whim. I was strolling through my local Ultra when this shade caught my eye. I loved how gold it looked and I just new it would create a sweet shimmer. I have never tried a Lipstick Queen product before so I had to Google to check that it was cruelty-free and since it was I just had to buy it.

I have to say I am pleased with the results. For a gloss it’s pretty cool. It has a good shine to it and it’s nice for quick looks when you’re not looking to create a whole lot of effort. My favorite thing about it is honestly it’s lack of stickiness. It might just be me but another reason I dislike glosses is because they usually feel sticky on my lips.

Gross.

I also have to say for a gloss you can’t beat that color. I mean a lot of glosses I have tried are pretty sheer. If you’re into sheer than that’s cool for you but if you are like me and like that full color this could be a reason you steer clear of gloss. This gloss has a pretty full color!

I mean it’s no Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick but you can tell I’m wearing something. My lips don’t just look shiny, they look colored. It’s a fun color that I think would transition beautiful from day to night looks.

So what do you think of this shade? It’s from Lipstick Queen’s Big Bang line in the shade Time. If you want to check it out on their website feel free to click the link below!

Someday I will actually do a full scale review on this product :p

Lipstick Challenge Day 13: Jeffree Star’s Masochist

Hello Day 13 ❤

I’m back with more Jeffree Star for today’s fabulous lipstick! As you know Jeffree holds my heart when it comes to his liquid matte lipsticks so it should be no surprise that I own a ton of his lipsticks.

You all also know that I’m a sucker for red so this shade shouldn’t be a huge shocker. However like I maintain every shade I own is different! For example, this lovely shade Masochist by Jeffree Star is such a beautiful pink/red.

There is something so delightful about this shade and I think my skin tone brings out much more of its’ pink undertones. I really feel that on lighter skin tones it almost has this cooler purple undertone to it.

Quick Thanksgiving picture ❤ Looking good!

The fact that it shows up as a pinky/red for me makes my day. I wear this shade a lot for more family geared stuff or fancy smancy stuff. For example this picture was taken at my family’s Thanksgiving. I feel like this shade has a way of dressing up my look while keeping things classy.

I rarely wear this shade when “going out” something about it just doesn’t give me that nighttime feel. I’m not sure if this will make sense but for me this shade is to bright and light to work for my nighttime looks. I personally feel it looks much better when meeting with family and doing other engagements like that where I want to dress up a bit.

What do you think? Would you wear this shade for Daytime, Nighttime, or BOTH?

30 Day Lipstick Challenge (Day 12): Sugarpill Cosmetics Trinket

Whelp….

Can we all just accept that I suck at posting challenges? I never keep up! I started out strong with this Lipstick Challenge and then as my scheduled posts ran out I quickly fell off the wagon. Ah, well. At least I tried right? I will continue with my Lipstick Challenge just know that I will be posting sporadically.

Day 12 is here so I am almost halfway through this challenge. Basically I’m a work in progress and I’m okay with that. Day 12 features Sugarpill Cosmetics liquid lipstick Trinket. I waited forever to get my hands on this baby and it is 100% worth it.

I may even like the formula better than Jeffree Star’s and that is saying something. You know how big a fan I am of that brand. Jeffree Star still wins out when it comes to colors and application. I’m not sure what the deal is with the Sugarpill application wand but I am not a fan of the doe foot. It’s too stiff.

The color as you can see though is magical. It’s a neutral color but that gold shimmer rings out shiny and true. Even though it’s more of a nude the gold shimmer makes it more fun. I wear this to a lot of different places out and about. Since the gold simmer isn’t crazy intense you can get away with it for a daytime look.

Decided to sport my Trinket lipstick while working at my second job tending bar (HeeHee… See what I did there?)

That being said I’d admit I’ve never worn this lipstick to my day job. I work with a lot of families for my job and gold shimmer doesn’t exactly scream professional. I have no problem wearing it out and about during the day when I’m not working though. I actually get a fair amount of compliments when I do wear this so it seems like it’s a pretty big hit.

What about you? Are you feeling this gold shimmer?

30 Day Lipstick Challenge (Day 11): Too Faced Bachelorette

*Since the original publication of this post I have learned that Too Faced is owned by Estee Lauder. Estee Lauder is a company that test their beauty products on animals. To learn more about what this means for Too Faced Cosmetics and why I will no longer review their products on GrimmGirl please read Is Too Faced Cruelty Free? Turns Out… Not Exactly 

 

Lipstick Challenge BOOM

It’s Day 11 and I am not messing around people. Two lipstick challenge posts in a row? I’m on fire. No challenge can touch this fire. In honor of being productive I’m bringing you something a little new today.

You will notice from the title that I’m not discussing a Jeffree Star product today. I know gasp in anticipation. While I do own a lot of his lipstick products their not the only lipsticks I have at my disposal. Exhibit A; my fabulous coral pink Bachelorette matte lipstick by Too Faced.

Some of the Grimms reading this may recognize this from my review Too Faced Bachelorette? Take My Money. If you’re not familiar with it you should check it out because I am a pretty big fan of their matte lipsticks. They are my second favorite non-liquid matte lipsticks to date. Sadly for Too Faced Winky Lux maintains the top spot in my heart.

There may be a few people in the audience looking at this shade and thinking Isn’t this just another pink like Sweet Pea on Day 6? And to that kind sir or lady I say bite your tongue with thou blasphemy!

Off to work looking professional because that’s how I roll

Bachelorette is CLEARLY a coral pink in comparison to Sweet Pea’s baby pink. Let’s all remember that I’m a complete and total makeup addict so to me there is a clear and definite difference. One of these days I should swatch them just to prove my point but I digress…

So what do I love about this coral pink?

It’s fun and it makes me think of summer! I wear it and I want to go to the beach and hang out in the sun. It’s a far cry from the changing leaves and comfy sweaters my area is beginning to experience as fall rolls in.

This isn’t a color I normally wear out and about on the town but I do enjoy it for my daytime looks. I like this lipstick when I’m doing family things like having lunch with my madre. Or when I have to meet with other professionals for work. The coral of this pink makes it fun but also keeps me looking professional.

I’m a fan!
