The Lipsessions



A weird thing has happened to me recently. I’ve been preferring lip products over any other type of makeup. There’s something about lips that can be so powerful (see Kylie Jenner for evidence). I’ve lately not only become obsessed with MAC soar but also Spice, and now after years of obsessing over nudes and sheer colours I’m settling in for a Winter full of punchier and matter lip shades. Take today for example, a rainy Wednesday to most, but to me it’s the perfect weather to wear my new mini Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.

Since doing more fashion posts, obviously having good skin in photos is a must, and a good liner will always be in my makeup stocks, but nothing makes an outfit pop more than the right lip shade. I haven’t worn a pinky nude in nearly a whole month, instead of opting for brownier, more sultry tones when I do go neutral. Dior Rouge Lipstick in Brun Samarcande is fantastic, and works beautifully layered on top of either Soar or Spice. I love that I can fill my lips out without having to go anywhere near a syringe, and that I can play up a feature that I never considered to be my best.

I’m currently buying a new lip product a week – an obsession? Maybe. But does it give me vast amounts of pleasure and help pep up old outfits – 100%.

What’s your makeup weakness?

    I have always been all about the lips….I have full lips, but I wear glasses so no-one sees the intricacies of my eye makeup. I never thought anyone’d ressurect Mac Spice after the 90’s though….

    I am a lip product living girl as well! I’m pretty obsessed! Similarly I love a good nude shade to plump my lips but I discovered Nars Velvet Matte pencil in Cruella and I have once again fallen back in love with reds… I must get my hands on Soar though, your recommendations are tempting me! xx

    Definitely lip products too! But I’m also always on the hunt for new foundations!! But lip products are just so easy and every color is for a different occasion so you eventually buy more :). I also love Mac dervish (liner)

    My weakness has always been lipsticks! I’ve been in love with MAC Diva and the Bourjois rouge edition velvets!x

    I feel the same way. I am a complete lip color addict. I don’t even want to begin counting all the lipsticks/liners/glosses.
    Especially working at MAC, I’m surrounded by lip colors all day so how can I resist!
