Hey, everyone! So these are some of the products I've been loving for the month of June.
1. NARS Mini Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
2. NARS Mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
3. HOURGLASS The Indestructible Matte Liquid Lipstick in Canvas
4. Forever 21 Compact Mirror
5. NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Burgundy
6. NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Mahogany
NARS MINI LIP PENCILS
These pencils lasted all day for me! I wore Cruella on my birthday and the day before to work and got multiple compliments on my cute, red makeup look. It doesn't fade at all or wipe of onto things you happen to touch during the day. I only reapplied it because I loved the color so much. And the best part is that it comes off super easy with a simple makeup wipe! I used Rikugien as a sheer cover over my current everyday matte lip look. It adds a slightly shimmer orangey-peach tone layer over whatever your wearing and is subtle enough to wear by itself.
HOURGLASS LIQUID LIPSTICK
I liked this product but I wouldn't wear it on its own, it's a little too light in color for my taste. It forms a nice matte finish over my deep colored lip pencils but again, I don't really like the color.
NYX SLIM LIP PENCILS
I am in love with these lip pencils! I have been wearing both of them together for a matte lip everyday look for the past couple of weeks. They were also super cheap! They don't last as long as the NARS matte lip pencils but that might have something to do with my application (QUICK TIP: It helps to exfoliate your lips before you try a matte lip look). I would definitely recommend these lip pencils. Both colors are a bit similar but the Burgundy has more deep purple tones while Mahogany has a bit of brown. On deeper skin tones these colors will definitely make your smile pop!
Here are some swatches of the products on my skin tone. Let me know your thoughts on these products! :]
