My Favorite Lipstick and Lip Pencil Pairings

Today I have a follow up to my favorite lipstick and lip gloss pairings post. If you missed that post,  CLICK HERE to read. This time I'm going to display my favorite lipstick and lip pencil pairings.

First let's talk about lip pencils

- Can give the illusion that you have fuller or smaller lips

In my case, lip pencils give the illusion that I have fuller lips rather than my usual medium sized lips.

- Can tone down a lipstick

If MAC's Saint Germain or Blankety (or any bright lipstick) too bright or too bold for your taste, try  using a darker lip pencil to help tone down the lipstick.

- Can be worn alone

Looking to change things up with your lip products? Try wearing a lip pencil shade instead of lipstick and wear a lip gloss on top or wear the lip pencil alone.

Thank you and you're welcome! Creme Cup and Blankety are the type of lipsticks that a lot of lip pencils will go with well. Mauve is a really pretty color!

Pilar said...

Thank you! MAC has so many nice shades of lipstick even though their company dupes a lot of their own lipsticks lol!

These are great lip combos! I really like lip liner too. It can do so much for your lips. I have many of those same Nyx liners, but there are a couple more I need to get -- like Mauve and Nutmeg.

Pilar said...

Thanks! I'm glad find this post helpful! It took some to build up my MAC lipstick collection lol!

Pilar said...

Thanks! I know some lip liners tend to give me fuller lips rather than the medium sized lips I actually have. I remember when I purchased Mauve, that shade was a last minute choice. Now it's one of my favorite lip liners!
