I love lipstick. No, I lurve lipstick. Like it's serious. Back in my college days I literally never wore it, which now seems insane to me. I have a really solid collection at this point but mainly rotate between a few tried and trues for my day to day. This combo is my absolute favorite - it's perfectly pink and the lipgloss finish makes my lips look full.
1. MAC Lipliner in Hip 'N' Happy: I got this pencil at the MAC counter at Bloomingdale's a few years ago, and it is my go-to pink lipliner. I will literally be forever indebted to the salesgirl who helped me that day - wherever you are, thank you! I outline my lips slightly outside my lip line (I don't want to look crazy, but let's face it, they need some help sometimes). And then I fill in my entire lip with the pencil. This provides a little bit of a solid base for even color, and I think it helps the lipstick, well, stick.
2. MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup: I then do a couple swipes with this perfectly pink lipstick (not too bright, not too pink, literally just right). Occasionally, if I'm looking for a little bit brighter lip, I'll sub in MAC in Overtime but I kind of think it's discontinued?!? Which is sad, because it's also great.
3. NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight: This lipgloss was on my beauty wish list (literally a mile long list in my notes app - like you can scroll forever on this thing) for so long before I actually purchased it. I'd first read that Kim Kardashian loves it (🙈 I know, but seriously she knows what she is doing). I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy it. It's amazing. I just swipe it on top of everything, and it makes my lips look a little plump and super finished.
