Our Editor-In-Chief's Assistant Kristie Dash's 30 Days of Lipsticks

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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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."

"So #30days30lipsticks is officially over. Looking back at the photos, I’m feeling pretty sentimental. It was a fun month of experimentation—it went by so fast! Through the process, I discovered some great lipsticks that have added diversity to my repertoire, but there were a few problems I ran into…

Weekends: On an average weekend, I’m generally going to places where lipstick could be considered aggressive, unwarranted, or even unwanted. Over the 30-day time span, there were definitely a few lazy Sundays that lived up to the 'challenge' aspect of this thing. The commitment of trying a new lip color on a day of running errands around the city kind of stressed me out, but isn't a full life about stepping out of one's comfort zone?

Selfie-taking: I'm usually unamused with those who take selfies every day, but this little project of mine required quite a few of them. Thirty, in fact. I tried to make things more interesting with the use of random props, but no one wants to see that many selfies of anyone. Unless Ryan Gosling had an Instagram account. Or David Beckham.

Being busy: Though the thoroughly-busy Eva Chen practically invented the idea of the artfully-curated post of work essentials (read: macarons), some days in the office were just so chaotic that I wouldn't even think about my post until the end of the day. I'd never truly forget because I was wearing the lipstick all day, but my mother never failed to text me a bunch of lipstick emojis as a reminder. Thanks, Mom!

With the above being said, #30days30lipsticks was a highly enjoyable experience and I'm glad I could share it with you all. Thanks for following along!"
