Remember when Avon kicked off the month of May with a 5 for $20 lipstick sale?
With the biggest lipstick color palette in the world and numerous formulas to choose from I was ecstatic! This was a great opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and try new colors without breaking the bank.
See how I did over 10 days ...
Finally I settled on 5 shades, Vamp and four different degrees of nude... Which turned out to be not too far out of my comfort zone after all.
Then I happened to see a post on Twitter about a 30 day lipstick challenge. With all the colors in the Ultra Color Rich line it dawned on me that it could actually be done with just 1 makeup line! So, as I placed my order I decided that I had to get colors other than nude, light nude, dark nude, and nude shimmer.
If I was going to have enough for every day and I really tried to add some variety. When my colors arrived I got to work.
Sadly I found that the hardest part of this challenge wasn't going to be wearing new colors but finding the time during the morning rush to stop and take pictures.
So, my 30 day lipstick challenge has become a 2 week work day lipstick challenge. Below are the results.
I've really been having fun with all the new colors so far!
I've already started blending colors to make new shades, overlaying with different lip liners and wearing two colors in an omber look to mix it up a bit. With just a few shades it's like I have an unlimited color palette. Best of all I've continued to wear bold colors more regularly.
Give it a try for yourself and let me know what you think.
