I mentioned in my recent Louise Loves post about a lip combination I have been using a lot recently. I wanted a lipstick which would give the 90s style nude/brown effect which are all over the place at the moment and I was lucky enough to find it in Superdrug for under a fiver!
I just picked up a few colours at random to try including the Gosh lip in 001 Nougat Crisp and two MUR lipsticks - The One and the appropriately named, Nude.
I'll start with the lip liner: this is definitely one of the nicest liners I've used, it's so soft and creamy, but not too soft, you can still get good definition with it. Although it is matte, it's not drying - however it's not super moisturising either so if you do have quite dry lips just make sure to exfoliate and use lip balm before - and glides really nicely onto the lips. I'd definitely like to try some other colours of this product. It's £4.99 in Superdrug here but currently down to £2.99!
The Makeup Revolution lipstick is part of their Amazing Lipstick range which are only £1 each! The One is a soft, creamy nude which is semi-matte. It is a little bit lighter than the liner and just brightens up the finish to bring it back to a more nude tone.
It is fairly long lasting but hasn't made it to the end of a meal unfortunately! Luckily because it's very similar to my natural lip colour it fades quite well and doesn't look silly when half of it has gone. Obviously everyone is different - I have quite a lot of colour in my lips naturally so going too pale just makes me look ridiculous so I am really pleased with the finish of this combination.
