Current Favorite Lip Combo

I love mixing lip colors to make my unique lip shade. With brighter lipsticks, I like to tone them down with a nude lip crayon. With nude lipsticks, I like to line my lips first with neutral brownish-tone crayon  to give my lips some base color so I would not look totally washed-out.



Bite high pigment pencil in Madeira
Too Faced melted liquified long wear stick in Melted Peony

These two are my small haul from Sephora. They are offering a choice of the mini version of lippy with purchase and I have been dying to try the new Too Faced liquified lipstick for the longest time.



Bite Madeira

Madeira is a creamy lip crayon which is a nude pink with some brown undertone. I prefer nude lippies with a hint of brown undertone. True nude lip products are so hard to wear on their own. I still want the neutral nude look but not look sick.



The free gift is of a decent size. Doesn't the picture on the packaging look interesting?


This has a sponge-tip applicator. A little goes a long way and this applicator is perfect to control the amount of product. 


Left: Bite Madeira
Right: Too Faced Melted Peony

The texture of Too Faced liquified stick is very unique. It is not liquid-y, it is not a gloss, it is not a lipstick, not gel-like. It is a stain, gloss and lipstick all-in-one, according to Too Faced. It is not sticky at all and it is very pigmented. You only need a tiny bit and don't go overboard with it. It is a free gift and this is the only shade offered and I am so happy with the color. I will definitely buy the full-sized one once I'm done with this which I think this deluxe-sample sized would last me quite a while.

Do you like to mix lip products and what is your favorite combo?

  5. I like the idea of using two different lippies to achieve better results!
    I don't do this often, but I like to use matte lippy or some stain as a base then top it with balm or gloss. It lasts longer, too. :)

    1. I like to do that too, mix matte lipstick with a gloss. Matte lippies last longer but I like the lip gloss to give moisture and shine.
