Lovely Ashleigh from Le Beaute Luxe tagged me to do this tag she created about our favourite lipstick+lipgloss combination for different colour categories.

Aren't you jealous you didn't come up with this idea first?? Because I am haha, I love this tag!! :-D

So here are my picks:

Lip Duo Tag

1. Nude
Nyx Summer Love + Barry M Lip Gloss 2
The lipstick has a satin sheen, and the lipgloss has a gorgeous subtle silver shimmer - and I see some pink and green particles too - which helps giving your lips dimension and prevents such a pale nude from sliding into concealer effect territory and wash out your face.
But the reason why this is my favourite nude lipgloss is its scent. It smells like the birthday cake of your dreams like you want to eat it with the entire tube, seriously.

2. Light pink
Mac Angel + Nars Turkish Delight
Kim Kardashian famously said this is her favourite lip combination, and yes, it really is the most beautiful and flattering milky pink.
Nars lipglosses are a little on the pricey side, but they have an incredible mirror shine and are very longlasting.

3. Coral / Orange
Mac Dreaming Dahlia + Mac Star Quality, from their new Fantasy Of Flowers collection.
For these two, words fail me. You can only stare at them in silence, wondering how such a unique shade of a blinding coral-y orange could happen. Just looking at them gives me life.
This is the look I created with this duo My Mac Neon Orange look + dupes

4. Bright pink
Mac Impassioned lipstick + Mac Impassioned Lipglass
This is one of the most iconic shades by Mac, I have an entire post about the lipstick here Mac Impassioned lipstick
The lipstick is part of the permanent collection, the lipgloss was released in limited edition as part of the Fashion Sets collection in spring 2012.

5. Red
Mac Russian Red + Mac Pro Longwear Lipglass in Driven By Love
Once you put on statement lipstick Russian Red (again, I have an entire post about it here (Mac Russian Red vs Ruby Woo), it's not like you feel the need to top it up with another product.
But if there's one thing that can top up Russian Red, that's Driven By Love lipgloss.
This formula is literally real paint. It coats your lips with a dangerously hot patent shine like I have only seen in portraits by David LaChapelle.
One time I wore it, I had girls coming up to me in the street to ask me what I had on my lips!!!!

6. Berry / Purple
This duo is actually a mauve shade. It is Kiko Unlimited Stylo in 13 Cocoa + Kiko Extra Volume Lipgloss in 13 Pearly Peony Pink.
The lipstick is my new favourite lipstick, I am wearing it here My #nofilter #selfiesaturday make up
I love the shade and I love the formula.
The lipgloss looks equally beautiful in the tube (I used it so much that the inner vial containing the gloss came off the outer part of the tube!), but once applied to the lips it's barely visible, so when I first got it I was pretty disappointed.
But now that I have Cocoa Unlimited Stylo, super pigmented and super opaque, just a thin coat of gloss in the same shade with a little shimmer is PERFECTION.
Definitely my most used lip combo.

7. Most unique colour in your collection
Mac Violetta + Mac Revenge Is Sweet Lipglass
My beloved Violetta!! One of my all-time favourite lipsticks and favourite things in the world!!
It is a divine magenta shade with a blueish pearlescence to it, please see it up close here Mac Violetta lipstick
And I course I couldn't pair it with anything else other than Revenge Is Sweet, the lipgloss it was released with in the Venomous Villains collection which took the world by storm in fall 2010.

I hope you liked my picks, thank you again Ashleigh for tagging me, I loved doing your tag!!

Kiko Unlimited Stylo lipstick 13 Cocoa

This is a 5 minute make up I put together just because I wanted to try my new Kiko lipstick from their new Unlimited Stylo line.

I got shade 13 Cocoa. I would describe more as a dark mauve, that your-lips-but-better kind of colour.
To prove my point, the lip pencil I paired it with which is by Kiko Smart Lip Pencil 712 and is in the same shade, is called Rose Mauve ^_^

I am already obsessed with this lipstick, this is my new favourite!!
And I am sooo tempted to say this is my ALL-TIME favourite, but after only wearing it once I guess it's a little too soon for such a statement :-(

The other products I am wearing are:

L'Oreal Lumi Magique (True Match Lumi) foundation in DW3 Gold Linen, applied with my Real Techniques stippling brush

Mac Pro Longwear concealer in NC30 on blemishes and Dior Diorskin Sculpt concealer on my undereye area, both applied with a Topshop Eyes brush

The black from the Kiko Bad Girl Color Fever eyeshadow palette 103, smudged on top and bottom lashline

Kiko Skinny Fit Kajal 06 (black), my new favourite black eye pencil, on my waterline and on the outer part of my upper lashline to elongate my eyes

L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara, another favourite, my current favourite mascara!!

Kiko Mat Tan Essential Bronzer, a dark matte bronzer from a past collection, applied with my Kiko Boulevard Rock Face brush

Below is another Unlimited Stylo shade I got, 14 Natural Beige, a very pretty beige shade ^_^

And I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kiko for sharing these two pictures of me on their social networks, thank you so much Kiko, I am so honoured!! <3 <3

Girls let me know what Unlimited Stylo shades you got!!

Have a beautiful day <3
