The lips add an extra dimension to your face and complete every makeup look. So I am all for a good lip look! 😍
For an everyday look, I’m more of just a nude lip liner and lick of nude-pink lipstick kinda girl, I don’t tend to carry the lipstick on me for touch ups as I just let it naturally fade off.
For a more glam look, I love me a matte red lip, but most of the time I can’t go past a perfect nude lip. Day, night, weekend; doesn’t matter, a nude lip will always work.
I love a good lip liner, but at the same time, I go through them SO FAST, as I use them everyday – That I will not spend a tonne of money on them unless they are amazing or they go perfectly with a particular lipstick/liquid lip colour.
My fave cheapies are definitely the Essence Lip Liners from Priceline. No shit, they are $2 !!! Who has even heard of a good lip liner being $2! And they are amazing, the formula is so pigmented, smooth & easy to sharpen. They aren’t chalky and they don’t just break apart as soon as you sharpen them. Amazing!
Even though I love a cheapie, I will admit that a perfect pair of lip liner/lipstick is a little weakness of mine; and the sales girls’ at the makeup counter can smell it on me I swear. They always talk me into the ‘perfect pair’ – For some it actually is the perfect pair, for others its just them trying to force a sale on me (well bitch it doesn’t always work lol).
I do love me a MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, I don’t like the regular ones, they are scratchy and not a great formula. The Pro Longwear ones are so creamy and pigmented they make me lips happy.
With lipsticks, I cannot go past a good nude. A nude pink, a nude peach, a nude-nude. Nude everything !! It is definitely my obsession and probably the only shade I lean towards when looking at the regular ‘stick’ lipstick.
I don’t have a preferred brand, formula or finish for my nude lipstick. It’s all about the colour. And I don’t discriminate either, I love every shade of nude from dark to light; They all work for different makeup looks and I love every single one of them.
As you would have read in my ‘Latest Obsession’ blog post last week; Liquid Lips is my latest go-to for my lip look. They are amazing, they are so versatile, and I’m totally obsessed.
Since venturing into the Liquid Lipstick world, I’ve definitely become more bold; rocking some colours that aren’t nude (which is so not like me) and I’m really enjoying it.
Even though I am shit at taking care of my lips, I love the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks.
I have yet to find one that lasts all day but you know what, unicorns aren’t real either, even though I wish they were – And I’m okay with that. I’m willing to touch up my lips a couple times a day to keep my Liquid Lip obsession going.
I’m sure one day, my obsession with liquid lipsticks will end, and I will return to the world of hydrated glossy lips – But until that day, please send your Liquid Lipstick recommendations my way, cause mumma needs to grow her collection! 😘😘😘
I pretty much only have 2 products in my ‘Lip Care’ collection; because:
- they both smell amazing!; and
- they work!
