30 Lipsticks in 30 Days 
September 2017

To celebrate Liptember this month I'm sharing my 30 favourite lip colours for Spring and Summer. 

30 Lipsticks Challenge: To wear a different shade of lipstick everyday for 30 days

Day 21 

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Kissable Pink 

This Revlon shade is a sheer finish so I line and fill in my lips with a pink lipliner and then apply the lipstick over the top for an opaque finish (Wear alone for a light sheer wash of colour). 

Day 22 

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer Sandstone 585 

This peachy nude Revlon Lip Lacquer is super glossy. Wear alone like I have or layer over your favourite Revlon lipstick. 

Available at Priceline $24.95 | Also available at Myer, Target, David Jones

Day 23 

Australis Colour Inject Lipstick Twerk 

This bright fuchsia is my new favourite Australis shade for Summer! This hibiscus pink. If you love hot pink lipsticks this is the shade for you!

Available from Priceline $13.95 |

Day 24 

NYX Butter Gloss Merengue 

This pink lilac shade of NYX Butter Gloss is glossy and pigmented, so it can be worn alone (like I have) or over your favourite lipstick! When I wear this butter gloss I always use a lipliner first, this helps the lipgloss stay in place and prevents the lip gloss bleeding. 

Available from Priceline $9.95 | Also available from NYX Professional Makeup stores

Day 25 

Perfectly Chic by Kate Johnson Cherish

Kate Johnson's Purfectly Chic lip glosses are super glossy, shimmery and this shade is very pigmented. Swipe one layer over your favourite lipstick or apply a few layers like I have for a gorgeous glossy cherry red lip. PETA approved Cruelty Free 

Available at Kate Johnson $14.50 |

Day 26 

Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick Calypso 

This Napoleon Perdis shade is my favourite hot pink lipstick! I have a blog post and video devoted to this lipstick. This shade is a deep fuchsia. I always wear this lipstick with a lipliner. 

Available from Napoleon Perdis stores or online for $38

Day 27 

Australis Colour Inject Lipstick in Mambo 

This Australis shade is a creamy nude that suits all skin tones. A great shade to pair with neutral warm tones or a dark smokey eye. 

Available at Priceline $13.95 

Day 28

Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick Aphrodite

I got that red lip classic thing that you like... Napoleon's classic red is Aphrodite. This is such a great red. I don't wear red lipstick very often - red is just not my colour but when I want to channel my inner Marilyn I rock this red lipstick! I am wearing it here with Cherish lip gloss applied to the centre of my lips. 

Available at Napoleon Perdis
