Recent Favorite Lip Combo!

As my past blog posts have shown, I love and have many lip products. (I feel like I don't have enough though!) Every once in awhile, I like to mix colors and textures to create a color I don't have. 

While cleaning my desk, I rediscovered my e.l.f Matte Lip Color in Praline. It's similar to my lip color and it's the only nude-ish color I have. I used to wear it a lot, but I like bold colors more. While playing with some lip products, I discovered a new combo that I loved instantly! Keep on reading to see what they are and how to create the above lip color!

All The Reds!

One of my favorite lip colors is red. It's so classy and classic. I would wear it every day if I could. 
Since Valentine's Day is coming up next week, I wanted to post all of my reds so that others could see what kind of possible reds to buy/wear. I have a lip product collection post, but it hasn't been updated. One of the lipsticks in this blog is limited edition and I don't think you can buy it anymore, but I still wanted to include it since I wanted to show all of my reds.

L to R: Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural in N48. MAC Viva Glam 1. MAC Fire Sign (Limited Edition). MAC See Sheer. NYX Snow White. Lancome Rouge In Love in 170N (Sequence In Love). Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance Lipstick in Fierce.

L to R: Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Mightiest Maraschino. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Adore. Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss in Hot Mess. Benefit Benetint.

In the same order as presented above.

I'm doing long distance and so I won't be able to smooch my boyfriend next week, but that just means that I can wear red lips without worrying! =)

MAC Viva Glam 1 is very similar to NYX Snow White. NYX Snow White might even be a bit creamier and moisturizing compared to Viva Glam 1.
Tarte Fierce is also very close to Lancome Sequence in Love. Sequence of Love is more shiny. Both of them feel very comfortable on the lips. I personally like Fierce because it's not as shiny, but Sequence in Love contains more product for the price.

I also have three red tinted lip balms (I have a problem). I like to use those alone for some color and moisture, or to top off my red lips during the day so that they dont look/feel so dry.

*MAC Viva Glam 1 was given to me as a gift by my boyfriend.
