My favourite lip combo...Tuesday, August 09, 2011
Hope you're all okay and safe where ever you are.
I've never really ever been experimental with my lipstick, I feel that my teeth stops me from wearing 'out there' colours, strange I know. I have always, always been a nude lipstick kind of girl, I find that this is the colour that suits me the most and if it ain't broke then don't fix it eh?
I'm going to tell you about my favourite lip combo, a mixture of high end and high street products. The two lip products that I am never without these days is MAC's Creme D' Nude lipstick and The Body Shop's Watermelon lip balm.
A funny concoction I know but it totally works. I finally bit the bullet and bought Creme D'nude from MAC after trying what seemed like every possible nude shade of lipstick on the high street. I always thought, I don't need a high end lipstick but you seriously notice the difference when you do make that purchase.
My Creme D'nude smells gorgeous, almost a vanilla scent that smells so yummy you could eat it up. I've also found that Creme D'nude is a natural nude that doesn't look like you've slathered concealer on your lips. I find the formula lasts a hour or so without eating or drinking which isn't too bad I spose.
I pair Creme D'nude with The Body Shop's watermelon lip balm. When we were younger my Mum used to be a Body Shop party representative. This meant that the house was always full of Body Shop products and some products remind myself and my sister of our childhood. The fruit scented lip balms is one of these products. We both decided to pick up the watermelon version as it's the most natural colour of the lip balms and smells gorgeous. This is like a gloss but not as sticky, it adds another dimension to your lipstick without being gloopy. The scent also lingers for ages which in my eyes is a good thing.
I noticed the other day that my Creme D'nude lipstick is getting lower and lower, I'm thinking of maybe getting Shy Girl next which is described as a peachy nude and I think this might be quite nice for my holiday, have you tried it? What's your favourite lip products?
Hope you all have a lovely evening and stay safe. x
