#NoBareLips30 Day 1-10

#NoBareLips30 Day 1-10

Normally, I don't do Instagram challenges or if I do, I can barely make it past 3 days. But that was until the #NoBareLips30 challenge came across my timeline. It was easy enough to follow and I've been wanting to add to the brown girl swatches online. (I've previously mentioned, how I only buy beauty products I've seen on WOC). So this challenged seemed perfect! Shoutout to Keiko Kaveri for starting this challenge and everyone who has been participating! I am loving seeing so many beautiful smiles ladies! Especially from my fellow women of color.

Here are my pictures from the first ten days of the challenge, along with the product info! For my ombre lip lovers, I use either Ellarie's tutorial or Glam by Meli's tutorial.

To keep up with me during this challenge, follow me on twitter and Instagram!

Day one:

I hate gloss, but these MAC lipglosses make for a pretty picture no?

Day Seven: Cream Formula

I don't normally wear cream lipsticks, but this YSL lipstick in Fuschia is so pretty! Lined with MAC's Nightmoth.

Day Eight: Purple

I loved this day, because purple is my favorite color! And Colourpop's Zipper is def my go to purple lippie. It's bold without being ridiculous.

Day Nine: Free Day

My free day pick was my favorite red lip of all time! The Sephora Collection lip stain in Always Red. Ombred out with Colourpop's Ellarie Liner.

Day Ten: Makeup Bag

The pink bag I got from my best friend's wedding and it holds my most used products. Inside it has 5-7 smaller bags, mostly gift with purchases. I (try to atleast) keep them organized by category. Lipstick, eyes, cheeks, etc. And I have another HUGE NYX bag full of special occasion and gifted items that I should probably giveaway and a small box for my high end products.
