Lip of the Day- Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

With Autumn in the air, I’ve been rediscovering lip products that I put away during spring and summer. Today’s lip is an oldie but a goodie, Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.

1

This is one of those cult shades that works across skin tones due to how sheer it is. It works with your own lip colour to build something that’s unique to you. Like a lot of women, my lips are not all one shade so I like to layer most lip products over a lip liner to even them out but this lipstick looks lovely and effortless on its own as well.

I wanted something that would compliment the lipstick so I paired it with Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in Obsession. I really like the texture of this lip liner as it’s really comfortable on the lips. The shade is a very pretty muted red berry shade that look nice on its own or under most red lipsticks.

I really like the end result and how rich the shade looks. You can easily change the look of the lipstick by pairing it with different shades of lip liner. I recommend checking it out if you haven’t yet.

Lip of the Day- Lime Crime Velvetines Lip Gloss in Red Velvet

I have been lusting after this shade for so long but it’s always sold out so I was quick to grab it when the chance came up. Initial thoughts: gorgeous colour and surprisingly comfortable wear for a matte. I have noticed that it tends to bleed slightly around the lips but I have to wear it more to see if this is common. Full review and swatches to come.

I’ve rediscovered my Stila In the Know eyeshadow palettes so paired the lips with a traditional matte pin up eye and some inner corner highlighting with Stila Kitten eyeshadow.

What are you wearing on your lips today?

Lip of the Day- Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Sensuelle

Just a quick post showing my lip of the day from yesterday. Autumn is well and truly here in Melbourne so I’ve been wearing a lot of my rich plums, burgundies and wine shades. I also really love matte shades during this season so I’ve got Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Sensuelle over NYX Plum lipliner.

Lip of the Day- Maybelline Color Sensational Gloss in Mirrored Mauve

I’ve been wearing a lot of drug store brands lately and I’m really impressed with the quality and pigmentation of the products I’ve bought. Today I’m quickly showing you one of my relatively new buys, the Maybelline Color Sensational lip gloss in Mirrored Mauve. It’s everything I like in a gloss, it’s super shiny, not sticky and feels really comfortable on the lips. Full review to come but Maybelline really know their stuff when it comes to lip products!

I’ve also been try more drug store foundations which I usually pass on. My favourite combination at the moment is the Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer (yes I know this one isn’t drug store!) mixed with Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation. I really love both of these products and am wearing this combination in the picture above- full reviews to come on both products.

Lip of the Day- Rimmel Renew Lipstick in Sloane’s Plum

Just a quick post to get back into the swing of things. Today’s lip of the day is NYX lipliner in Deep Purple topped with Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Sloane’s Plum. I picked up the lipstick without knowing what it looked like and it was a pleasant surprise. Full review to come but initial thoughts are that it feels really great on the lips and has great pigmentation.

I haven’t posted because I just haven’t been in the mood and I’ve decided not to force myself to blog when I’m not in the right frame of mind. This year hasn’t been a great one so far and I have a few friends who are going through some really tough times but I’m just so impressed with how they’ve been pushing through despite everything against them. You guys are amazing!

Lip of the Day- Kardashian Beauty En-Joystick Lip Lacquer in Love Hangover

I’ll be posting up a review on the Kardashian Beauty range of lipsticks very soon but here’s a teaser of sorts. I really like this shade, Love Hangover, which is a very wearable metallic nude shade on my lips. I find myself pairing it often with this style of radiant looking makeup.
