I Tried (And Failed) To Wear Red Lipstick Every Day for a Week

Once upon a time, I had an idea for a blog post that I thought would be really easy, at least for me. Wear red lipstick every day for a week? Pfft, easy. I love red lipstick! And I was close! So close! A work week of just red lipstick? Sign me the hell up! And then by day three, I was already #OverIt. It was super limiting. I had to plan my outfits accordingly. I made it through three days and by Wednesday I was losing momentum but pulled through. In my defense, on Thursday, the day I failed, I put red lipstick on and it just wasn't right with what I was wearing. However, I had something really important that day and my outfit and general makeup look were more important that this challenge. Big emphasis on challenge. I finished off the week with four out of five days and I'm not sure I could do it again. Five days of a nude lipstick? Easy. Five days of opaque, bold red with my limited closet? Not quite the easiest.

This was on Monday when I was doe-eyed and didn't know what I was getting myself into. I was wearing a Lancome matte lipstick that I actually don't know the name of and am struggling to find.

Tuesday was much better! I was super cozy in my outfit and pairing red with all black everything was simple. I wore one of my favorite liquid lipsticks and reds, Too Faced's Lady Balls and was thriving.

This was Wednesday, the day I was struggling. I went with my tried and true H&M sweater because, well, it has red on it already and it's my go-to whenever I see it ticking closer and closer to the last possible minute I can leave for work and not be late. I popped on NARS Cruella and called it a morning!

This was my attempt at trying to still kind of complete the challenge on Friday, even though it mostly went to shit on Thursday. In all fairness, I had red lipstick on, I just only had it on for three minutes before I attempted to remove it. I went in with my tried and true NARS Dragon Girl for Friday and even popped on my little red lipstick bag from Saint Laurent for good measure.
