Nude Perfection For Lazy Lip Days

If your a lip product addict I’m sure you’re familiar with those days when you really want to wear a lipstick or something but you just can’t be bothered with the effort. Even if you’re not a lip product addict, you probably know what I’m talking about. Sometimes you just don’t feel like prepping your lips with balm and then carefully line them with a lipliner, then apply your lipstick and maybe if you’re into gloss you might even top it all off with a lip gloss! Sometimes you just want to apply something real quick and be done without having to worry about your lipstick emphasising dry patches or staining or you name it.

While I’m definitely a lover of a bold lip I like to keep it natural a lot as well. Especially on days when I’m not doing much besides maybe attending a lecture or something I’m really into nudes. Now I’ve found the perfect product for my lazy lip days: The Maybelliner Color Drama  in Nude Perfection.

I think the name is pretty  much on point and says it all. The shade is more of a darker nude but I definitely prefer those to the lighter ones as they go better with my complexion, so for me this is definitely a perfect shade of nude. The best thing though is that this is so super easy to apply. It literally takes a few seconds to apply and it’s so long lasting. Plus it feels so nice and moisturizing on the lips! When it comes to lip liners and matte lipstick I’m always a bit worried that they are too drying but this one is not drying at all which is a big plus.

All in all I’m just really loving this product at the moment as it ticks off all the boxes. It’s long lasting, non drying, matte gorgeous nude shade and it’s just perfect for those lazy days when I can’t be bothered with all the other stuff.

A Lip Combo I’ve been Loving

It’s Monday! Most people I know dread Mondays including me. It’s just hard to go back to the serious life after a fun and relaxing weekend. Even though I’m still at home for another week to recover from my hospital incident I definitely feel along with those who have to go back to work, uni or school.

Since it’s Monday I thought I’d share one of my tips with you to be motivated and to get through Monday. One thing that always helps me is to doll myself up a little and here’s a pretty lip combo I’ve been loving lately, that is just perfect for every day.

These are the two products I’ve loved mixing lately. First I apply one of my favorite nude lipsticks: the Maybelline Color Sensational 725 in Tantalizing Taupe. If you ever get one nude lipstick from the drugstore this is the one I would recommend. The shade is just perfect, it’s so creamy and moisturizing, which makes it a dream to apply and it lasts a fair share of time.

Next I apply a bit of my Mac Dreamy lipgloss. I’m usually not too much into lip glosses but this one is an absolute dream. It’s a gorgeous super light pink gloss, that gives your lips a pretty shimmer without being too pink. Plus it’s not sticky and let’s be real sticky glosses are the worst. I hate when my hair gets caught up in those. Luckily this gloss is super moisturising as well and not sticky at all.

What I like about this combo is that the lipstick adds volume to my lips while the gloss gives them a natural shimmer. It’s the perfect combo for every day whether for work, school or uni.
