“30 Days Of Lippy”: The Half-Way Point


As promised, I’m back with my “30 Days Of Lippy” challenge half-way point follow up! Going into this, I knew I had a lot of lip products. That was a given. What I didn’t know, was how many lipsticks, lipglosses, lip balms I owned that are literally (yes, literally) collecting dust. Such a shame. I usually spend quite a bit of time on my eye look then grab the nearest neutral “your lips but better” lippy and call it a day. If anything, this challenge has really made me aware of all the options I have. And for that, I am thankful.

Let’s see how I’ve done so far. Do you remember the rules?

I have to tell you, choosing shades for the first 15 days was pretty simple.

The first 7 days are pictured below in order by day (left to right):

Day 1: Avon “Plump Pink”

Day 2: Revlon “Siren”

Day 3: Mac “Viva Glam Gaga 2”

Day 4: Revlon “Fire” (lipgloss)

Day 5: Nyx “Angel” (matte)

Day 6: Revlon “Lovesick” (balm stain)

Day 7: Revlon “Raspberry Pie” (lip butter)

The following 8 days:

Day 8: Nyx “Tea Rose” (matte)

Day 9: Nyx “Sweet Pink” (matte)

Day 10: Maybeline “Fifth Ave Fuschia”

Day 11: Avon “Endless Watermelon” (lipgloss)

Day 12: Nyx “Smoke Look” (lipgloss)

Day 13:  Mac “Offshoot”

Day 14: Topshop “Flush” (blush-cream to powder)

Day 15:  Loreal “Beige”

Pretty good right? I am very much looking forward to the last 15 days. “Bee-Stung,” “Gold,” and “Two-Tone” lips seem a bit more difficult but I’m up for the challenge…BRING IT!

Don’t forget, you can follow along each day via Instagram (RitaMil) using the #30DaysOfLippy tag.

What’s your favorite look so far?
