Life has been crazy busy with the end of my school semester, various work obligations, the holidays and of course, my personal life. Because I have fallen behind on sharing the progress of my lip challenges, I have decided to combine the last week of my November Lip Challenge with the first week of my December Mini Lip Challenge (I participated in #7lippies7days on instagram). Get ready for a serious lip diary!

I woke up this morning and knew I needed to wear something bright. I remembered picking up Mac Pickled Plum recently and decided to put it on. I always think that’s a silly name for this color. Colors with “plum” in the name should be purple shades, not pink. I also tried out my new T3 Single Pass Flat Iron, thoughts?

Last year, I was discussing my love of red lipstick with a friend of mine. She told me her holy grail is Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Dragon Girl (she also told me that this is the red Taylor Swift swears by). The combination of red lipstick and Taylor Swift was too much for me to avoid. Later that day, I went to Sephora and picked it up. For some reason this color has never looked the same on me twice, and often looks extremely pink. Luckily I love it either way. FYI, this is by far the reddest this color has ever looked on me.

I haven’t left my house in days, but needed to run some errands. I wasn’t interested in putting on any makeup, but at the last minute decided to apply some lipstick. I was really excited to receive some Nars Velvet Matte lip pencils from Sephora for my birthday, but always forget about them. I decided today was the perfect day to put on Cruella!

i can’t believe today is the last day of November. I have decided to participate in an additional lip challenge this week, the #7lippies7days ,so I am double counting this picture. The first prompt for the 7 Lippies challenge is “nude”. I actually don’t have any nudes, and this is the closest I get: Nars Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil. Rikugien was the second part of the Sephora birthday gift and I actually like it much more than I thought I would!

Today’s #7lippies7days prompt was “orange”. While I love the color orange, I do not love wearing orange makeup. After scouring my lip drawer I came across “Barbecue” from Mac’s Toledo collection and thought it was the perfect choice. I don’t know why this collection wasn’t more popular, I love a lot of the colors.

Today’s prompt, “pink”, was a no brainer for me. I have been looking for an excuse to pull out Mac’s Girl About Town lipstick and lipglass. I have a serious soft spot for bright pinks, and although it may not be the most seasonably appropriate color, it is truly one of my favorites.

I love berry lips so I was thrilled with today’s “berry/purple” prompt. I went back and forth between a few colors before landing on Too Faced Melted Berry. This was one of my first liquid lipsticks and I think the color is gorgeous. I had a bit of a feathering issue today, which had never happened before, but I still love how it looked!

As you can imagine, I couldn’t wait for today’s prompt: “red”. Obviously, red lipsticks are my true love and I had a tough choice on my hands. Luckily, I had just received a new one the day before, and I couldn’t wait to try it out: Mary Kay’s True Dimensions Lipstick in Firecracker. This is the first time I have worn any Mary Kay lipsticks. I loved the color, it was a great shade and not one I have. The finish is pretty shiny, which I like, but because of it’s soft texture, it does spread a little bit. The best part about this lipstick is just how moisturizing it is. I love lipsticks that also make my lips feel great.

I had been thinking about this prompt all week “gloss”. I really don’t like to wear glosses on their own, plus I knew I had some holiday infused festivities planned for today, so I didn’t know what to wear. In the end I decided to layer Mac Tenor Voice lipstick and lipglass. I know I say this a lot, but this really is one of my favorite colors. Anytime I want a real standout lip, this is what I go with. Additionally, it is a perfect holiday red! I sort of broke the rules, but oh well, I’m a rebel.
This completes the November Lip Challenge and transitions me into my December Mini Lip Challenge where I will wear different shades each day for the first few weeks of the month! Follow my challenge on my Instagram page @Jessicasgoneviral.
