Click through for all 30 lipsticks in our Editor-in-Chief's assistant's month-long lipstick challenge! From nudes to bold colors, there was no shade left behind in her mission to change up her dailly beauty look. Shop all the lipstick colors here (plus the surprising hue Kristie chose for the last day).
Day 1: Chanel Rouge Coco in Gabrielle
"The most perfect orange in existence."
Day 2: MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Dear Diary

"Matteness + color = a thumbs up!"

Though Kristie's hot pink MAC shade is no longer available, try MAC Pro Longwear Lipstick in Love Forever ($40, maccosmetics.com).

Day 3: Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Showstopper
"As the name states, it's gel-like, but holds up with the use of liner. Feels silky, which is nice for a change!"
Day 4: MAC Lipstick in Morange
"My all-time fave formula—a matte lipstick. It's a more orange version of my fave Lady Danger."
Day 5: MAC Lipstick in Plumful
"I've been really into this color family lately. It's easier to maintain and it's my version of natural."
Day 6: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Satisfaction

"I feel like you'll think I cheated, but I swear a full coat of lipstick is on. Very much a natural lip color."

For a similar sheer pink option, try Chanel Coco Rouge in Parfait ($34, Chanel.com).

Day 7: Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers in #200
"Super hydrating and easy to wear."
Day 8: Jason Wu for Lancome Lipstick in Cocoa Couture

"This color makes my teeth, hair and skin look bright! It has sheen, but it's not at all drying or sticky."

For a similar burgundy option, try Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in Prune Desir, $30, lancome-usa.com.

Day 9: Dolce & Gabbana Shine Lipstick in Fuschia
"It's very pigmented in color and shiny."
Day 10: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Door Red
"A true red and applies like butter."
Day 11: Calvin Klein CK One Lipstick in Wanted
"I love the color. It's more pink than red, which make it different and I like the matte finish."
Day 12: NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow
"Rich, velvety and matte in color, but it applies super easily thanks to the thick shape of the tube. I didn't even have to use liner!"
Day 13: Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Plaza
"It's like a lipstick version of Dior's popular [Dior Addict] gloss. Quite pigmented but not opaque so it's semi-natural looking."
Day 14: Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Raspberry Shimmer
"The only shimmery lipstick I've accepted into my life, [and] I kind of love it."
Day 15: Burberry Lip Mist in Nude Honey
"Only slightly darker than my skin and very hydrating." Try pairing it with a smoky eye like Kristie did!
Day 16: Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Color in Carliana
"So luxurious feeling. Very pigmented, true red that lasted all day and was hydrating."
Day 17: CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

"Feels silky, but still rich. The color is unique!"

For a similar dark berry shade from the line, try CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Tempt ($5.70, target.com).

Day 18: MAC lipstick in Pink Pigeon

"All-time favorite matte lipstick formula and a great color."

This color was limited edition, but for a similar shade, try MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum-Yum ($15, maccosmetics.com).

Day 19: Shiseido Perfect Rouge lipstick in Dragon
"I think this is my favorite shade yet!"
Day 20: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in MAT8

"So so so matte, which is a relief."

For a similar shade, try Make Up For Ever in 46 Satin Bordeaux Red ($20, sephora.com).

Day 21: Nars Sheer Lipstick in Roman Holiday
"Though I'm feeling sad about the lack of correlation between the weather and the lipstick name, this sheer wash of pink is perfect for a pretty daytime look."
Day 22: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Wine Not

"An amazing drugstore find! The color is a bit dramatic, but luckily I work at a fashion magazine. So into a dramatic lip these days."

For a similar drugstore beauty cheapie, try Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in Wine With Everything ($7.99, cvs.com).

Day 23: Le Métier de Beauté Hydra-Creme Lipstick in Mondrian
"Orangey-red is my go-to shade (and I swear it's flattering!) so I was excited to try this one. Haven't had to reapply all day."
Day 24: Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Extatique
"The quintessential Barbie pink. It even has a hint of iridescent shimmer! So fun."
Day 25: Youngblood Lipstick in Tangelo
"The peachy orange color is unique. I like that you can layer thicker coat over thin to make more intense. Perfect idea for day to night."
Day 26: Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Voila
"It was difficult to find liner that matched the unique color but love the "gel" quality and shade!"
Day 27: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Obsessed
Day 28: MAC lipstick in Glamourdaze

"I'm loving the plum family these days. This one has a creamy yet opaque consistency and was darker than expected, so I blotted off a bit for weekend wear."

For a similar shade in the plum family, try MAC Lipstick in Fluid ($16, maccosmetics.com)

Day 29: Dior Addict Extreme lipstick in Bellissima
"The Dior Addict Extreme line has turned out to be one of my faves. Great consistency and color!"
Day 30: Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Smeraldo
"I was so excited to use the infamous lipstick from their Sicilian Jewels Collection. I think it could actually work on darker skin tones but I don't think I'd wear out unless I lived in the Capitol or was auditioning for Wicked."
