After all these years I finally figured my favourite lips colours are rosy/ nude pink. Sounds like everybody’s fav color, right? I’ve tried so many colours, orange, coral, red, bright pink, purple, dark… I found that sweet and girly makeups aren’t for me, and dark/ bright red colours make me look old in pictures. So neutral, darker, warmer pinks have become my go-to favourite. They compromise my skin tone and can go with so many different looks. Just recently I have gotten and played around with some new lip stuff. Let’s see if they’re your cup of tea.:)
First off let’s talk about how beautiful this Hourglass lip stick is. It’s so elegant and unique. The colour I got is no one knows. On the website it says this is a “peachy pink.” It does have a tiny bit of peachy tone in it but only when you compare it to other nudes/ pinks. I really like the colour, however the consistency is not my favourite. Not sure if it’s just this colour, but I found that if I use it on top of some lip balm the colour kind of slides away. Even on its own I feel like it’s a little waxy and doesn’t go on smoothly. If I use my finger to smooth it out a little on my lips it looks perfect, but for this price I’d expect something more than this.
This Charlotte Tilbury lipstick packaging is again so elegant and beautiful. The colour is liv it up in the hot lips line. The colour is so much like no one knows on my lips, but without the peachy undertone. But this lip stick goes on more smoothly and the colour pay off is a tad better. I wish they had a long wear formula for it tho.
So M.A.C came out with this new lip collection last fall, called M.A.C Liptensity. It’s supposed to be limited edition but is still for sale. I have to be honest I was never a fan of M.A.C, not that I didn’t like their products, I just found other brands more appealing. But I regret not getting these lips sticks earlier.
The 2 colours I got were Driftwood and Toast and Butter. The first day I wore Toast and Butter I got so many compliments, even from guys (not my date/ bf/ dad, etc. etc.) which to be honest was totally out of my expectation. It’s a wearable brown and such a beautiful fall colour. Bonus is it’s so long wearing. I’m so in love.
Driftwood is a lighter cool nude pink. It doesn’t look like it in the picture, but it’s actually not that nude and is a little pink on the lips. It doesn’t give a bold statement like Toast and Butter. But you gotta be more careful with the overall look you want to archive and have the right colours for your eyes and cheeks, then you can archive a very cool look. Or else it could may you look a bit tired and sick.
The last product I want to talk about is Tarte’s quick dry matte lip paint. It’s my favourite matte lip product so far- great colour, goes on smoothly, dries fast but gives enough time to blend, but at the same time so comfortable to wear and isn’t drying. The colour I got was rosé, which is my absolute favourite rose nude. It is my go-to lip stick now when I don’t have a particular colour I want to wear.
I’d love to know what your fav lip products are and see if we share the same taste! Comment down below and please follow my new IG: https://www.instagram.com/rebilives/
