Flavorful Lips for V-day!

—-

Your boyfriend is probably not going to be thrilled with these, but they’re so cute, I had to do a feature on some of my favorite lip pictures.

What lip are you thinking of doing this Valentine’s?

Midnight Iris: Gold and Navy Lip

—-

This is definitely NOT a Valentine’s Day lip! I was having a spot of fun with my wacky-colored Carousel Glosses the other day, and decided to do a “3D Lip” using unlikely colors.

Step 1: I used a navy blue kohl pencil (MAC Blooz) to line the rims of my lips.

Step 2: I applied blue gloss over the outer sections of my lip, avoiding the center and wiping away any smears right there.

Step 3: I applied a golden gloss to the center of the lips, being careful NOT to blend it into the blue.

Step 4: Roll your lips together (inwards only!) to smooth out the gloss and then stick a finger in to remove any excess from the center of the lips. 

Step 5: Reapply blue gloss to the outside areas of your lips as the rolling would have thinned it out by now.

IMPORTANT: 

At Step 4, when you are rolling your lips together, don’t rub your lips side-to-side. Very gently just roll them into your mouth and then back out. Repeat the motion a few times.

NYX Sweet Pink Matte Lipstick

—-

I mentioned this lipstick quite a few times and thought it was about time to do more of a feature. 

NYX Sweet Pink is a deep, matte magenta which is strong and bright, but one shade less neon than shades like Barry M Shocking Pink or MAC Candy Yum Yum. If you want to try a hot pink but are afraid of neon notes, then NYX Sweet Pink is a fabulous, more lady-like alternative.

The texture is creamier than most matte lipsticks are, and the coverage is opaque as you’d expect. There’s a bit of an artificial fruity scent there, but nothing too offensive.

NYX is available at beautyjoint.com, cherryculture.com and nyxcosmetics.com.
