I’m not a fan of the Kardashians, but it’s undeniable that those girls can start a trend! Obviously Kylie’s lips are a big deal these days, but I’m more interested in what she has on them. Initially I didn’t think the muted mauves and dusty rose tones she wears would look great on me, but the more I experimented, the more I fell in love with the casual simplicity of this look!
I didn’t realize I was forming a pattern but after a few purchases, I have a nice range of shades from different brands that I keep in constant rotation. And of course, matte is where it’s at.
One of my favorites because of how effortless the formula glides on and sits comfortably on the lips. It is a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil that makes for easy application, but I do find that I go through these pencils pretty quickly because you have to sharpen them to get precision. They aren’t insanely pigmented but I appreciate that about them.
This is also a very creamy and comfortable matte texture lipstick; I would actually almost consider this a satin because it has a bit of a sheen. I also like the precision I get with the angled applicator and it has really great pigmentation. The color is more pink but stays on trend and is easily manipulated with cool tone lip liners.
The darkest of my rose collection, but I like it because it’s still very feminine and girly with that 90s brown tone that keeps it from looking dated. MAC matte lipsticks are comfortable and very pigmented so you get your money’s worth.
A product I keep around for those “No Makeup” makeup days. Sometimes all you need is a flush of color to keep your look polished and that’s what you can expect from this matte lip tint. Very light texture and the formula is made with peppermint oil so the scent is refreshing. This is my substitute when I don’t want to reach for my typical lip moisturizer or gloss.
Can’t say enough about how I live for the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks and I’ve given my Beso a break as I’m currently obsessed with this beautiful dusty rose. Why is it the perfect shade for every occasion? The matte formula stays put all day and is the most comfortable liquid lipstick I have tried.
When wearing these shades, I almost always am wearing either Whirl or Cork lip pencils by MAC. They offer a subtle transition from my natural lip color and compliments all of these lipsticks perfectly.
Have you experimented with any trends lately?
