My NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Collection

Image

My love for the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils knows no bounds and has paved the way for an almost obsessive “gotta catch them all” mentality. These pencils are the ultimate in matte, long wearing lip product goodness. In the beauty community, their cult status has been engrained and for very, very good reason. I cannot stop raving about these but enough with that and let’s get on with the swatches!

The Liebster Award #2

So I have definitely been feeling the love around here. I have been awarded, a second time, the Liebster Award by Natalie at beauty and the eyeliner. This tag by Natalie is composed of sharing 11 Random Facts About Me and a Questionnaire. Check out her blog here for some awesomely written makeup posts on some really fantastic products (I assume her makeup collection is insane in the best way possible). I especially love her thorough reviews! Thanks again, Natalie!

I tried to think along a colour spectrum so all the shades would vary but I was seeing through some literal pink-coloured glasses (I do love my pinks). No doubt, these would be the 5 lipsticks I would recommend to those wanting to get into MAC Lipsticks. However, these are obviously some more colourful picks so they may not be for everyone. But I like to look at the different shade categories as guidelines for colours to pick. Of course, I am missing shades like the perfect orange or purple or coral or soft pink or red orange but I had to draw the line somewhere or else I would just be finding ways to just show my whole MAC Lipstick collection, haha. I have included arm and lip swatches as I find that both can be very useful.
