#30DayLipChallenge | Week 1 Overview

You must know by now that I am trying to challenge myself by wearing a lip product (often along with a full face of make up - but definitely not every day) for 30 days! It was quite a big challenge, especially with the heatwave that bothered us folks in West-Europe, which was pretty killing. Luckily, I started right away, which meant I had some less sweaty looks too! Take a look.

You will notice a funny decrease in prettiness or quality of my face and photos throughout this challenge, because I am wearing less and less foundation, ha! Especially in this heat. What was I thinking?! It was becoming too much for my face and too bothersome for me to wear several make up products every day, so.... be prepared for the coming weeks, I say! For now, though, you can check out my first - might I say - successful week! 

DAY 1: I was excited about putting on make up on this day, because I combined it with a photo shoot of a summery but classy outfit. I was wearing a long black dress, so I decided to keep my eyes smokey grey and my lips cool red! This is definitely one of my favorite truly red lipsticks: Mon Rouge by Lolita Lempicka
DAY 2: another favorite lipstick is Von Dutch by MDMflow! If you want unique and handmade lipsticks then you should be reading up on this brand. I wore the orange quite softly (by not over-applying) and I paired it up with golden eyes and lots of eyeliner. 
DAY 3: This lipstick has not been mentioned on my blog yet, but I have had it for a while now. It is a soft but cool pink shade called Rouge Dior by Dior! Not sure what I was thinking with my clothing. As I was taking the picture for this day I started to get really hot. At least I got one good shot before my face started melting off! 
DAY 4: The Rouge Edition Velvet collection by Bourjois Paris is one I am really enjoying. I have actually tried a new lippie from this collection during this challenge and now want it (oh-oh, that was not the idea behind the challenge). This shade is called Grand Cru (#08). It is a deep and classy red color that I love. 
DAY 5: Can you notice I am feeling hot on this picture? Well, I certainly was. Despite the heat I tried to wear some simple make up. I wanted a bit of a change from my regular black eyeliner, so I went for purple eyeliner from my Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2 24/7 eye liner set! A simple and soft change. I wore Purple Dream (#11) a Cien lipstick found at the Lidl supermarket, because I liked the different shades of purple!
DAY 6: Speaking of a soft change... I also wanted to wear a softer lip color on my lips, so I wore my Jordana Twist & Shine Rouge (lip crayon) in #07 Rock n Rouge. I got this lip balm from my New York Beauty Swap with my cousin.. and will publish my review... you know, someday soon :-)
DAY 7: I have already noticed that I have a tendency to wear bright colors, so I wanted to finish the last day of my week with a nude lip product. I am wearing a Radiant Crayon Lips in Sablé Doré by Yves Rocher. My review is coming up in a couple of weeks! Pinky promise. 

What have I noticed from my first week in the #30DayLipChallenge? Well, I am wearing loads of bright or pigmented colors. Three of my lip looks are in a red shade, one in orange, one in pink and one in brown! I have been mainly using lipstick, but on day 6 and day 7 I used lip crayons instead of a lipstick! The textures I have chosen were usually shiny, though there are one or two matte/creamy ones in there too. I am excited to see what the following weeks will bring.. and how badly I will deal with the heat! Oh-oh. Did you join the challenge too? Have you noticed some of your own tendencies? On to week 2 and 3! In the mean time... check out how Jana and Marjolein are doing?! I'm so curious :-)



  1. Wow de lippenstift van dag 4 is mijn favoriet! Hij lijkt fel op Pirate van Chanell!

  2. I didnt ge around to join, but the concept is great. There is a similar challenge with eyeshadows I have seen on Instagram, I guess shopping your stash is in fashion right now.
    These bold lips look great on you, no surprise you are drawn towards them.

    1. Thanks! I've been trying some softer colors lately. It's not the wearing of lipsticks that's really challenging, though... More the taking of pictures everyday. Such a hassle :p

  3. Oeh, da's al een mooie eerste week van de challenge! Tof om te zien dat je zo graag felle lipstick draagt. Kleurtje/look 2 staat je zó leuk!

    1. Dank je wel! Het motiveert me eend minder felle kleuren te dragen :p

  4. oooeh leuk zeg!
    mijn favoriete kleurtje van deze week is de tweede
    felle lipstick staat je goed


  5. Ha, bij mij is het net omgekeerd, ik ging deze week voor heel veel neutrale kleurtjes. Het kleurtje van dag 6 staat je echt super!

    1. Dank je! Ik ben al benieuwd hoe de andere weken eruit zien bij jou!

  6. Oh super mooie kleurtjes allemaal. Ik heb het allemaal wat lichter gehouden, maar zo'n felle kleurtjes staan jou echt geweldig! Ik geloof dat Dag 6 mijn favo is ;)

    1. Dank je, Marlies! Bij jou zaten er gave roze kleurtjes tussen!
