My 100 Day Lipstick Challenge | Week 1

A couple of weeks ago, Urban Decay got in touch with me to ask if I wanted to run an online competition to give one of you the chance to win 100 lipsticks, which obviously I did! More than 4000 of you entered and trust me I wish I could have given on to each and every one of you! As a thank you for running the competition, Urban Decay kindly sent me my very own 100 lipsticks. 100! It’s the probably the most excited I’ve ever been on a day that isn’t my birthday or Christmas.

When I looked through the shades I realised that I had never worn hardly any of the shades, and I didn’t want to just have it in my room collecting just as I loathe clutter so I decided to set myself a 100 day lipstick challenge. I’m not going to lie, as I’m self-employed a lot of my days are spent writing or DJ’ing at home and I don’t put any makeup on and feel disgusting all day so I thought it could help my self-esteem too.

And so that’s what inspired my #100DayLipstickChallenge. I’m currently on day 9, and I have to say I’ve loved it as it’s pushed me to wear colours that I wouldn’t usually consider wearing. A lot of you have been asking me for links so thought I’d share each day with you so far.

It’s worth saying, I pretty much use the same base makeup for everything and just mix up my lips and eyes, click on any of the images below to see more:
