A Drugstore Lip Trio That Rocks.



I'm not one to wear more than one lip product at once. Maybe a lipstick and gloss if you're lucky, but never liner too. I recently filmed a prom makeup tutorial (which will be up now) where i went all out using a liner, a lipstick AND a lip gloss to create a perfect nude, full pout. Whats even better is that this amazing combo is made up of 3 super affordable products - want to know more?

The lip liner in question is one which i havn't used for yonks, the Rimmel Lasting Finsh lip pencil in Tiramisu. Its a peachy brown toned nude which is perfect for my skintone, and even more perfect for creating a Kylie jenner-esque look. Its a creamy formula but once set it stays put, meaning its easy to use, and also can be used as an all over lipstick if you fancy.

On top of that i slick on the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Notting Hill Nude. Its notoriously difficult to find a nude from the drugstore which isn't too pale with a brown/peach undertone, but this is that. Its definitely not a brown lipstick but it has a warm tone to it meaning that it would suit both pale and darker skintones. The formula of these is great - Opaque in one swipe with a slightly glossy finish. I am slightly weary of wearing the brighter colours in the range for fear of them smudging all over my face, but this one seems to stay put pretty well, especially when paired with the liner.

Finally, a gloss which i've already reviewed, the Maybelline Coloursensational Shine Gloss in Cashmere Rose. This gloss is perfect on its own, it simply gives you a sheer wash of peachy nude colour with a subtle shimmer which helps the lips to look full. The formula is completely non sticky and keeps the lips feeling nice and nourished. This colour on top of the lipstick makes the lips look a lot more full and helps the colour to be more subtle and subdued.

I'm not sure if this will be a combination i'll be wearing day in, day out but whenever i'm fancying a full on nude lip, this is the combination ill be going for hands down.
