Mac whirl lip liner & brave lipstick

I don't usually like giving in to hype & jumping on a bandwagon straight away so it has taken me a while to decide to make these purchases. Firstly, let me say that I am not into the overdrawn lip thing that Kylie Jenner has going on, or maybe she's had lip fillers, either way I'm not too interested in that aspect of things. However, I do like the colour that she has been wearing on her lips as it is a pinky nude. There have been several lipsticks mentioned and having looked at them, I decided that Velvet Teddy would be too brown for me & decided on Brave. It is a satin finish lipstick, which I find very comfortable to wear & it lasts an average of 3 hours on me, which is pretty normal for most lipsticks. It is a warm, fleshy, pinky nude and I think it would suit all skin tones. I am pretty much in love with it & think it will go with almost all make-up looks. I also love the slightly sweet scent of MAC lipsticks.

To go with the lipstick, I wanted to get Soar lip pencil, but it is currently sold out everywhere so I decided on Whirl. It is slightly darker than the lipstick so it's a very '90s look, but it's not so different that it looks ridiculous. I have tried Spice with it also as I already had that in my collection, and that works too, but I think Soar would be the perfect match. The MAC website says that Soar will be in stock soon, so no doubt I will get it as soon as it lands!

Overall, I am very happy with this combo and can see that I will be wearing it a lot this Spring!

  1. I bought brave on friday and I love it! I'm trying to get dervish lip liner to go with it but it seems to be out of stock everywhere.

  2. Soar actually came back into stock on Thursday so I ordered it - might be worth checking the MAC website again?! Brave is beautiful, isn't it?!

  3. Brave is such a gorgeous shade!! I need Whirl in my life now!

  4. At first glance the colors looks really pretty.

  5. Or Soar! Either would work well! xx

  6. They really are! A nice pink nude suits me better than brown nude!

  7. Beautiful combination. I actually almost picked Brave up the other day. It was sold out. And I didn't realise until afterward that it is the suppose "Kylie Jenner" Lip...which maybe explains why it is sold out.
