When I find a lip combo I love, I wear it pretty much everyday, and recently I’ve found my perfect match. If you saw my Pop Of Pink post the other day, you’ll know I’ve been loving a splash of pink at the moment. It’s not a shade I usually go for, but I’ve found some really sophisticated tones and products and I can’t stop using them. Let me tell you about my perfect pair.
First up, it’s not everyday I wear pink lips so this combo must have something quite special about it. I’m usually more of a nude/brown kinda girl, but I’ve bit the bullet and stepped out of my nude-ish zone (and it feels good). The pair of the moment is ColourPop’s Ultra Matte Lipstick in Clueless, a gorgeous dusty mauve with MAC’s Lip Liner in Soar, the perfect dusky pink. These paired together gives the most stunning rosy pink/mauve, which is so nice paired with a golden eye.
Let’s talk about the formula, as I find this the most important part of lip products. ColourPop Ultra Matte lips can be quite drying, but not if you apply a balm underneath. The formula is lightweight and I never buy doxycycline canada feel like I have anything on my lips, and you do only need just one swipe for amazing full coverage. To ensure it doesn’t dry out my lips, I apply the MAC liner all over my lips as this acts as a base and adds a contour effect as the liner is a touch darker.
The wear for this pairing, and the Ultra Matte lipstick alone, is just incredible. I go through the day eating, drinking and it stays on for at least 8 hours. The only bit I ever need to touch up is the middle, which is common for me with any lipsticks. I find the MAC lip liner very long lasting, more so than the lipstick, but it holds the lipstick down well. I just wish the lip liner wasn’t in a wooden pencil as the Pro Longwear Liners from MAC are much creamier, however you get amazing pigmentation with Soar.
I just can’t get enough of this combo and the look I typically go for is glowing skin with a golden eye, here (above) I’ve used the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette.
