Operation Lippies

Diane from Orange to L.A. started a very interesting beauty project called Operation Blush, where she will use a different blush from her collection everyday for this month, with no repeats.

I thought this is such a fun project to do. But since I don't think I have 30 different blushes in my collection yet, I decided to do an Operation Lippies instead. I have a lot of lipsticks and lip glosses in my makeup drawer that I have been neglecting, so this would be a great way for me to re-discover perhaps some of my old favorites.


I started this project on Monday, July 12th. For the next 30 days, I will try to wear a different lip products from my stash everyday, without repeating.

I took swatches of all the lippies and will show them to you weekly. Here are all my lippies lined up on my vanity, ready for me to grab for everyday!


And my bare lips for pigmentation reference once I do my swatches:


Please join us in Operation Lippies/Blushes, or come support us! :)

  1. Ha ha that sounds so much fun! You can always combine it too - if you want it to be more complicated.

  5. Sounds like fun. I don't think I have 30+ of one item. I will gchat/ email you my findings.

    However, I do have 30+ nail polishes, but the removal + painting will be TOO time consuming in my part...

  9. This sounds fun! I would do it if I had 30 lippies. Hmmm, should I do it with eyeshadows? Haha, I think that would be too much. But good luck! Can't wait to see your weekly swatches. :)

  15. Oh goodness. Is this going to hard, esp since you like using one tube up before using another. This will be very interesting. Maybe I should do it now, since clinicals are over and I can actually wear lippies and not look out of place. Ha.

  18. Good luck with your Operation Lippies! I have over 30 lip products myself and this is very difficult for me to do this since I stick with a gloss that I'll be wearing everyday and then use it all up. I nominated you for a Blogger Award!
