Simply Lippy Challenge Day 77 | Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Shade, A Short Affair

The shade I wore for Day 77 is a very sheer pink from Wet n Wild’s Silk Finish Lipstick range and is very pink!


Many of you will know that I’m not really a pink girl, I’ve grown accostomed to the odd matte pink throughout my challenge so far which has surprised me, in a good way! But this shade might just be a step too far for me.


When I look at this shade on my lips, I can’t help but think I look ridiculous. It’s very girly, and perhaps a little too 80s teenager for me and my tastes.


That said, the formula is nice enough and overall I do really like the previous Wet n Wild lipsticks I wore on Day 52 and Day 68 of the challenge.


As I mentioned in my earlier post, I have some personal things going on at the moment and therefore need to take some time out but I will post as often as I can and appreciate you guys sticking around to follow my challenge updates.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 36 | Clarins Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick in Shade 32, Pink Cranberry

Happy Sunday everyone! Can you believe the weekend is almost over already? It always goes so fast, especially when you’re busy running around doing things as I was today. But, the best thing about my weekends now, is getting to wear lipstick shades I wouldn’t wear to work.

Today’s lipstick is from Clarins, and is the most beautiful sheer lipstick I’ve worn in a long time. The shade, Pink Cranberry, is exactly what you expect it to be: a soft cranberry shade with a delicious berry scent. One of my favourite things ever in a lipstick is when the shade looks exactly the same on your lips as it does in the stick, so I really love that this Clarins lippy did that today.

The shade, from their Joli Rouge Brilliant range, is super hydrating on the lips and leaves a lovely intense shine on application. The soft texture makes it so easy to apply, and I absolutely loved it from the minute I put it on.

It’s not dissimilar in colour to the Hugs and Hibis-Kisses shade I wore from Catrice on Day 29 which I fell in love with; the only difference being that it was a creamy opaque lipstick and this is sheer. But, I’ve quickly fallen in love with this now too.

Sheer lipsticks wouldn’t usually be my go-to, but I was so impressed with this lippy today. At the beginning of my challenge I didn’t think I would discover so many new lipsticks that I’d end up liking so much, but today made me realised just how many amazing lip products are out there waiting to be discovered!

If you don’t like a sheer finish then this won’t be for you, but if you don’t mind about finish and want good quality, then this gets top marks from me. 

If you’re enjoying my challenge so far, I’d really love for you to please come follow me over on social media too.
