All In The Lips

I wanted to do a blog post on the two lip products that have been rocking my world recently, so here goes. It also happens to be the best and most simple "day to night" look transformation. 



Look #1: Dior Addict lipstick in the colour "Beige Casual" (link)


I had to take an extra photo of it to fully capture its brilliance. It's a real "my lips but better" colour for me because it's sheer and meshes well with my natural lip pigmentation while enhancing them subtle shimmer and a glossy finish. It makes my lips look so much fuller and more plump. Love it!

Look #2: NARS Matte Velvet lip pencil in "Red Square" (link)

I could go on and on about my undying love for these NARS lip pencils but I'll spare you the ramble. If I could own every single one of them, I will be a very happy woman. They're perfect. Matte, lightweight, long-lasting and not as drying as you'd think! Red Square is a stunning bright orange-based red that I will be rocking all spring long. I highly recommend it. I wear it both during the day and night.

All I need!
The rest of the makeup was my usual go-to blend of neutrals. Dior Nude bronzer, a hint of Burberry Earthy blush, and Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow along with a warm brown from Guerlain's Les Fumes eyeshadow quad in the crease. Black liner, mascara, done!

Have you stayed loyal to any lip products in particular this past month?

  1. Damn girl! Both look gorgeous on you. I love how monochromatic the daytime look is too with the color of your top. The Dior Addict formula is one of my favorites, and I actually almost picked up a NARS matte velvet pencil over the weekend....but I didn't :(

  5. I have been surprisingly loyal to MAC's Angel. It's getting to that point where I have to TRY to use other lipsticks, but I just end up wanting Angel.

  11. They both look lovely on you, I love the look of the nars pencil, I always get so distracted by their blushers and bronzers that I never think to look at anything else, I'm definitely starting to think I need a nars lip pencil now :)

  12. Both of these lip colours really suit you. My usual nudey daytime lip favourites are my Nars glosses. I have Sex Machine and Bettina Velvet Matte pencils from Nars but I usually wear them under gloss.
    My bold lip "discovery" this month has been Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte lipstick. I've acquired and been rocking Calypso (a very bright orangey red, Red Carpet (a darker, more neutral but still on the warm end of the spectrum red---more work friendly than Calypso) and Pink Lily, a very bright fuschia. The formula is extremely long wearing and non-drying.

  16. Both of these are absolutely gorgeous! Red Square looks amazing especially- reminds me a bit of NARS Heat Wave, which is another lovely warm red :)
