November Lip Challenge — Week 2
I can’t believe I have already completed the second week of my November Lip Challenge (if you missed week one of the challenge, just click here)! I will admit it is getting harder for me to pick out my daily lip look. I am definitely taking more time picking out my outfits so I can make sure I have an unused color to coordinate with. This week I used a variety of bolds and neutrals, a few I forgot I even had!!

This summer I was browsing in Nordstrom’s beauty department and a salesperson from Smashbox offered to give me a makeover. I was killing time so decided to let her. I’m not a huge fan of their products (aside from their primers) but loved the lip stain she used on me, Beet It. I love this color on me, and am always surprised by just how much I love it. It has fantastic staying power but tends to feather on me, even if I use a reverse liner.

I was really in the mood for a soft look this morning so I didn’t think twice about my lip choice! I combined Mac’s Creme de la Femme lipstick with Nymphette lipglass. I discovered this look last year when I had my makeup done before the Jay Z and Beyoncé On The Run tour and it has remained part of my regular rotation ever since.

I love wearing bold lips with black dresses. I realized that I haven’t really worn any berry lip colors this fall so I decided to pull one out. In February, Make Up For Ever released a limited edition lip set to coincide with the release of the 50 Shades of Grey movie. The set included a lip liner, lip stain, clear gloss and berry colored gloss. For this look I used the liner, stain and clear gloss. FYI, this product has a funny “taste” to it. I don’t typically taste my lip products but it is kind of hard to miss sometimes!

Earlier this year I became fixated on finding the right “neutral pink.” I spent way more time than I am proud to admit looking at various swatches and adding them to my wish list. Quickly I moved on to another color obsession but when Mac announced their Some Enchanted Eve holiday collection, I instantly recognized Please Me from my wish list. I obviously picked it up and realized I needed a lip liner to go with it so I also grabbed Rosy Rim. I still don’t think this is the right color for me, but it’ll do until I find it!

I don’t know how I made it ten days into this challenge without wearing my favorite lip color: Too Faced Melted Ruby. Those of you who read my very first blog know that this is where my love of makeup started. I love this color and I have a soft spot for it. It wears beautifully as long as I wear a lip primer and reverse liner!
That completes the second week of my November Lip Challenge. My container of used products is filling up and there are some I will definitely miss during the next few weeks. Follow my challenge daily on my Instagram: @Jessicasgoneviral and share your own looks with the hashtag: #NovemberLipChallenge
