"30 Days Of Lippy": The Finale - Chitown Fashionista

“30 Days Of Lippy”: The Finale


We have come to the end of the “30 Days Of Lippy” challenge and I have to admit, the last 15 days proved to be much more difficult than initially anticipated. As I previously stated at the half-way point, I knew I owned a ridiculous amount of quite a few lip products. One would think a challenge like this would curb the need to purchase any more. However, I’ve discovered that I don’t own any true berry shades of lipstick nor do I own anything in gold. The fact that these are my thoughts at the conclusion of this challenge is a problem. It’s okay, you can judge me.

Just as a reminder, here were the rules:

I have to admit, I struggled a bit during the last half of the challenge (as you will see below, I used one lip product for two days). However, attempting my first ever two-toned lip and rocking a bold dark lip was so fun I’ve already tried other daring lip choices since ending the challenge. The options are endless!

Days 16 through 22 (left to right):

Day 16: Nyx (lip liner) “Hot Red” & Revlon “Siren”

Day 17: Wet N Wild “919B”

Day 18: Chanel “Cavaliere”

Day 19: Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss “Crystal Lilac”

Day 20: Rimmel by Kate “Rossetto”

Day 21: Jordana (lip liner) “Petal”

Day 22: Wet N Wild “919B”

I wrapped up the last 8 days with some favorites and discovered a new, never used lippy which has now become my go-to lipstick. It’s beautiful! That alone made this whole challenge worth it.

Days 23 through 30 (left to right):

Day 23: Elf plumping lipgloss “Mocha Ice”

Day 24: Smashbox “Melondrama”

Day 25: Nyx “Sweet Pink” (also used as my “Hot Pink”)

Day 26: Avon Lip Juice “Ripe Melon”

Day 27: Revlon “Black Cherry”

Day 28: Jouer Lip Enhancer Conditioning Treatment

Day 29: FAIL (As you can see, I’m in the market for a gold lippy…any suggestions??)

Day 30: Avon “Instant Mocha” (which looks nothing like it sounds!)

So there you have it. 30 days, 30 shades. All things considered, I think I did pretty well. Looking back on the month, I have to say day 4 was my favorite…I’ve always been partial to a bold red lip.

What was your favorite look from the challenge?

    Hi Nikia,

    Great blog. Love the lipstick challenge. My colors seem a bit ho-hum now. Think I will refresh my collection.

    • Nikia Jefferson says:

      Yes! Rita did a great job with this challenge. She put my sorry little 4-piece lipstick collection to shame! lol.

  3. I have to say I love the look of that Instant Mocha! Haha Avon with your funny names! You definitely had a pair of the juiciest lips in the challenge! (Wait, does that sound kinda R rated?!) Sorry! But its true! 🙂

    Thanks for bringing it to Chi-Town! 😉

    • Rita Milton says:

      HAHA, thank you! The challenge really helped me to discover some very neglected lipsticks so thank YOU for the challenge! 🙂

  4. Hey my middle name is your name & it’s spelled the same! lol anyway this is such a cool idea. Maybe I’ll try 5 or 7. No way I could do a month. I normally play up my eyes & do a nude lip until my friend gave me some MAC gloss she never wore in a mulberry tone. I felt so out my comfort zone but I like.

    • Rita Milton says:

      At least you tried it 🙂 If you want to get more comfortable wearing different lip colors, try wearing a bold lip around the house for a few hours, or just out running errands to help get you used to it. You’ll be rocking daring lips in no time! Thanks for reading! xo
