I would like to quickly apologise for the lack of posts last week, with a combination of the flu and the beginning of uni I was either in bed or in class. But I will be back to normal from now on!
Who doesn’t love a good old fail safe lip combo? Something that goes with a smokey eye, something that looks casual when you don’t want to look too done up, something that you can just slap on and know you’ve made the right choice. For me this is definitely the combo that always saves my life. First I start by lining my lips with the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob – This is the perfect pinky nude shad that I just love, its kind of a my lips but better, the great thing about his lip liner is that it is completely opaque so it gives a great cover on the lips and also means I can overdraw them without it looking totally noticeable which for my upper lip is an absolute godsend. On top of that I use the NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey – Now if you have ever read my blog before this lipstick will not be new to you at all! I absolutely adore this colour and formulation of this lipstick, its matte which is my favourite kind of lippy plus the colour is my perfect pinky nude shade. I am getting a lot better with wearing proper nudes but this kind of pinky dusty nude I think definitely compliments my skin tone a lot more than a regular brown nude. As I said previously this lip combo goes with absolutely any look, I challenge you to find a look it doesn’t go with! As well as it looking fab with anything it also lasts the distance, with the combo of the lip liner and the matte formulation of the lipstick it really grabs to the lips with out moving. Earlier in the year I wore this combo to a wedding in the wine region of the Hunter Valley, it was hot out there and I mean HOT so as you may have guessed I was drinking a lot and I tell you what, this did not budge! It lasted all day with just a little touch up after dinner. This was the final hint that this lip combo was the one for me, something that looks fantastic as well as having a very long wear time. And I mean both of these products being of the drugstore variety is even more of a bonus!
Have you go a fail safe lip combo? Have you tried either of these product?
