MAC Cork Lip Pencil: This is my second ever MAC Lip Pencil and I love it. I use it most of the time to line my lips because it is a perfect match for my skin tone. It's a medium-dark brown colour which ensures majority of my lipsticks are wearable.
MAC Shy Girl Lipstick: I don't think I have actually featured this properly on this blog and that's such a shame because it's really amazing. I have to say I wasn't wearing it as much because I didn't like how it looked on my lips. I just didn't know how to work with it but now it's much better and I find myself reaching for it more often. It's a warm nude shade with hints of peach but it's really lovely once you learn how to work with it. I always line my lips before using this and its cremesheen finish makes it really easy to apply.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Coffee Kiss: I recently posted a review of this lip gloss and it is definitely one of my current favourites. It's a brownish pink nude lip gloss which is perfect for those days when you want to look simple and natural. It also has a really lovely non-sticky formula.
I start off with priming my lips with the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (the night before) to ensure my lips are smooth and soft. The next morning, I apply my favourite Lip Liner- MAC Cork which is essentially a brown lip liner that does wonders for my lips. Once my lips are lightly lined, I go in with my MAC Shy Girl Lipstick. I go over my lips a few times because sometimes the initial layer looks too light but a second layer does the trick. The last product is the Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Coffee Kiss (630) which is the icing on the cake. I don’t really need to add this but I find that it locks in the lipstick and helps it last much longer.
I wear this lip combination so much and it’s currently my go-to lip combination especially when I have bolder eyeshadows on my eyes. I never really like pairing bold eye colours with bold lips; I choose one and I usually go for bold eyeshadow and keep my lips simple. Sometimes, I substitute MAC Shy Girl with MAC Velvet Teddy (review here) or any Dupes (review here) and it still looks amazing but it’s not as nude. Ignore my tired face in this picture; I had a super long day :-). That's pretty much it. What is your favourite/current lip combination? See you in my next post...xx
