Lipstick a Day Challenge

While at L'Oreal and in New York City I went shopping with what else but cosmetics. We went to Inglot, MAC, and the L'Oreal shop which is basically an employees only discounted store that carries all of the L'Oreal brands (think YSL, Lancome, L'Oreal, Maybelline, etc.). I've been really into lipsticks lately and of course, I was drawn to some of the new colors and bright bold hues. Darian seemed to be under the impression that I had way too many of the same color pink and tried to talk me out of purchasing 4 new pinks to add to my collection. Of course, I was sure that they were in fact different and that I needed them.

Darian may have had a point because when we got back she took out my lipstick drawer and counted. I have a total of 45 lipsticks and of those, 22 are pink. She came up with a challenge for me as she still is yet to be convinced that they are different (even after swatching them all on paper).

For the next 45 days, I will wear a different color lipstick

Since she went in on my pink lipstick obsession, I only thought it fitting to start with one of those. 
Day 1: YSL Rouge Pur Lipstick in 141 Pink Satin 

This color is similar to Viva Glam Gaga but less sheer. It retails for $30. It didn't make it through eating but it lasted about 3 hours before I noticed it was gone. 

So how many of you honestly have a bunch of lipsticks you never wear? Be honest! Join me and wear a new color every day and see just how much you love the colors you own (and maybe how much you don't!)

Bye for now!
