Aisling.. Jenner?

21.7.15





Okay so maybe the title of this blog post is a little misleading, but you'll see where I'm coming from in a minute. I'm never one to jump on the beauty trend bandwagons that come and go, but there was just no getting away from the 'Kylie Jenner pout' that everyone and their mum seems to be rocking. Lipsticks have always been my vice and when I was in MAC recently I decided to treat myself to a gorgeous duo that I hoped would give me the full lips of my dreams.

After swatching many a nude in the Covent Garden store of MAC I finally ended up purchasing a lip liner in 'Spice', and lipstick in 'Velvet Teddy'. Velvet Teddy is described as a 'deep toned beige' and comes in my favourite matte finish, and Spice is described as a 'pink cinnamon' shade that complements the lipstick perfectly. As someone who wasn't accustomed to the whole nude lip fad that's been everywhere I was amazed at how much I loved this pair. The colours really flattered my pale skin (something I was worried about) and I was able to make my lips look full and plump without being obviously drawn on, something I hate. I love MAC's matte lipstick range, as they have amazing colour pay off with just one coat and aren't quite as drying as those from the retro matte collection. (Ruby Woo I'm looking at you.) Both 'Velvet Teddy' and 'Spice' are very long lasting and I rarely have to top up my lippy.

I'm obsessed with this lip-look at the minute. You'll find me wearing it at any given opportunity! I have well and truly hopped on the Jenner bandwagon. Damn you Kylie. Aisling. xo
