#ALipADay Challenge – Week 26…and a Gwennie moment…

Can I just take a moment here?  26 weeks…. That’s six months…. half a year….. 182 days!

I never thought I get this far, but indeed I have and it’s been a pleasure everyday. Yes, there have been days when I didn’t really want to put on any makeup, days when the lipstick I chose just didn’t look right and days when, gloriously, it all came together. But most of all, each and every day has made me realise how just a slick of lipstick can change your mood. A bright lipstick and suddenly, the world seems a little less hostile. People smile as they pass you in the street, ask you what shade you’re wearing and new conversations are struck up.  All because of a lipstick. An inconsequential, finger-sized, bullet-shaped little pack of possibilities.

Before I get all gushy and emotional on you, here are the little beauties that made up Week 26, from top right, anti-clockwise:

Day 176: Vita Liberata Lip Gloss 
Day 177: ckOne Lip Shine in high #201
Day 178: Smooch Lipstick in Sweetness
Day 179: Daniel Sandler Lipstick in Cherub
Day 180: Lancôme Rouge in Love in Jolis Matins #106M
Day 181: Guerlain Gloss D’Enfer in Prune Zip
Day 182: Chanel Rouge Allure in La Favorite

Until next week….

    Hi. I love your blog and this challenge! You should try Elaine Lancaster’s Pusswah pink gloss. It is super pigmented and glossy. She is a drag queen on a television show on Bravo. Might be fun to throw in a gloss made by a drag queen!

    OMG!!! Those lippies are all so pretty. But among those lippies, I prefer the Chanel one. I so love the shade. Great choices indeed!
