Lipstick Obsession Part 6 – more duds 

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this weeks edition of my Lipstick Obsession. This week we’re working on a new batch of duds! If you’re interested in reading my other posts click below:

Part 5 – More love

Part 4 – Hates

Part 3 – Loves


I do have to say as we progress in this journey I am pleased that my dud pile is smaller than my love, although I have been rather picky about my colors so far, let’s just say there may be a whole host of duds as we get closer to the bottom of the pile.  This batch aside from the bottom color (Subtle Peony)  I just didn’t think the payout was there from the color itself…….

Nudestix – Flesh/Soul – this is a dual sided lip and cheek color pencil.  The colors swatch so beautifully and if you were in the market for an easy to pack travel duo this might be what you would reach for.  Even more so if you’re in the mood for a very natual look (which we know I’m not really the best with that) you might find this duo the best thing ever!  For me, iw was a little too nude and not enough bang for my buck.

Tarte – Park Ave Princess – I am on a Tarte kick at the moment, they’re new lippie stick collection is to die for.  Needless to say I was really excited when this came in a sample box from Sephora, alas it was not to be, the color is minimal on my lips at best, and even though the formula is nice and hydrating, I think I might actually get more of a glossy payout from my Burt’s bee’s Mango balm.

Sephora – Rouge Balm – Subtle Peony – This was the second of those impulse buys from Frannie’s prom look.  I really loved the swatch in the store, but when it oxidizes on my skin it’s just not pretty.  Don’t get me wrong there’s 10 more colors in the collection that I plan on at least looking at, but sadly, this color will go into the donate to the kiddo’s box.

have you tried any of these lippies? how did you fell about them?

Lipstick Obsession – Part 4 – hate it’s 

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m currently on a lot of antihistamines, and I started writing this post as a Move trailer – In the battle of good and evil, one woman stands apart!  On her quest to find the perfect lippie she must battle……….

If you don’t know by know from my blog how much of a goofball and geek I really am, I apologize and understand if you stop following me.

Now on to the fun stuff, I’m cleaning out my lipstick drawer – and what a drawer it is!  My husband and daughter tell me on a regular basis I’m not allowed to buy any more until I pare down, so that’s what we’re doing, really, in hopes I’ll be able to buy more soon 🙂 If you’re interested in reading my previous post click here

This weeks edition are my batch of hate it’s and my one “eh”. I know hate it is a strong word – let’s just say they didn’t work well for me.

From Top to Bottom:

Nyx – Ombré lip duo in Poppy and Lily – I was taken by the packaging but when I actually swatched the color in the car I knew it wasn’t going to be a great color for my skin tone.  

Nyx – Butter lipstick in Afternoon Heat – I’m always on the search for the perfect red – let’s just say this one did nothing for me.

Nyx – OK I know this sounds like a Nyx bashing but I have a lot of colors I love from them, I’m always pulled to their displays, and they’re always buy one get one, so you can pick up more.  This is their Creme matte in Istanbul – I feel it’s a  little 80’s pink on my

Revlon – Juicy Stick in Ruby Twist – it just doens’t stay on for anything, and the color is a little off putting on me

Lastly – Clinique’s Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry – I just feel like you have to do a lot of work for very sheer payout and you have to reapply constantly – and who’s got time for that.

Here’s my one “eh” – so far – it’s from Juice Beauty – Satin Lip Cream in Blush – it’s ok – the color is fine, the finish is ok, it needs to be reapplied often but not too much.  I have nothing good or bad to say about it, so I’m putting it in a pile and I’ll check back on it later.

So that’s 12 down only 52 more to go – lol
