Hello dolls,

Ok so I know I just had a huge rant about MAC lipsticks but I would now like to introduce you to my LOVE for MAC lip pencils. I’ve always been a lip pencil kind of girl and although I hate hate hate to admit it (and I will deny it if asked in public), I was one of those girls who would wear nude lipstick and accompany it with a dark brown/maroon lip pencil. Urghhhh. It still makes me shudder, but hey we’ve all been there! (Well that’s what I tell myself to make me feel better lol).

When I first purchased a Honey Love lipstick (MAC Matte finish) about two years ago, I started to experiment with what I could do with it when mixed with different lip pencils. I think that was the time when ‘ombre’ was trending and everywhere you turned everything was ombre (nails, hair and eventually the trend turned to lips). I decided to try it out and I am so glad I did because I quickly but slowly fell in love. (I know that doesn’t make sense but my mind is a complex thing lol).

Honey Love is the PERFECT base for creating ombre lips, it’s like the perfect nude (I’ll be doing a post on nude lipsticks soon). And I adore the combinations I’ve made when mixed with other lip pencils.

I love ombre lips because sometimes I find that wearing too much colour on lips like mine can be quite striking, so mixing a nude with a strong colour can make the overall effect a bit less harsh. I have to admit that I no longer apply full on ombre technique, but instead I just leave a touch of nude visible in the centre of my lips. I like having different colours on my lips when I wear lipstick on a day to day basis, while saving the striking full on blocks of colour for more glammed up occasions.

Also, I really like the variety of colours in the MAC Lip Pencil range. I find that using lip pencils as a lipstick gives me more of a choice when deciding what lip colour to wear.

Here are a few of my favourite combinations..

1) Honey Love & Ablaze Lip Pencil

Now I absolutely ADORE this combination. When I first bought the Ablaze Lip Pencil (it was part of a limited edition range), I fell so in love I had to buy two! It was the colour I was looking for for so long! And to be honest I prefer it to the Ablaze Lipstick (which I will feature in one of my future posts).

This combination of Honey Love and Ablaze Lip Pencil comes out as a orange-coral tone, which unfortunately isn’t completely clear in the picture. I would say overall the combination looks slightly darker than the picture above, but it is definitely one of my most favourite combinations ever! I think I wore it almost everyday for about 6 months, that’s how obsessed I was!

2) Honey Love & High Energy Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

This has become a new favourite, I tried this combination out a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it almost everyday since! The combination comes out as a deep orange-red shade and I love how bold it looks. I feel like it’s a colour I can wear everyday without having the drama of say the RiRi Woo Lip liner (which I will feature on my post on the RiRi Hearts Collection – one to watch out for!)

3) Honey Love & Embrace Me Lip liner

Honey Love Lipstick with Embrace Me Lip Pencil

This is a another limited edition Lip Pencil that was gifted to me from America. It was sold in the MAC UK stores but it sold out before I could get my hands on it, so I was super happy when my sister got it for me from America! I went through a phase in my life when all I wore was pink lipstick and lip pencils. But I always had the problem of my lips looking more purple, as opposed to bright pink. The lip pencils I had been using included the likes of ‘More to Love’ and ‘Process Magenta’ (both by MAC, the latter only being available in the MAC Pro Stores). Don’t get me wrong I love both colours, but for a girl with my natural shade of lips, they weren’t ideal for creating a bright pink shade. Embrace Me on the other hand was perfect! I was so surprised by how it came out, when I compared it initially with Process Magenta, they looked almost IDENTICAL. But after application, I was sold. And let’s just say my Process Magenta Lip Pencil hasn’t seen the light of day in a long time! Embrace Me is the perfect bright pink, and mixing it with Honey Love gives the wearer the ability to make the shade as light or bright as they want! I wear it as quite a pale pink (by using more Honey Love) to Uni, but on days where I want to be a bit more glam I can make it a gorgeous bright fuchsia, which I feel is quite similar to but much much more wearable than Candy Yum Yum (another MAC Matte Lipstick which will feature on my blog soon).

4) Honey Love & Beet Lip liner

Now I have to say I was getting really frustrated when I was taking the pictures for this combination, the photo’s are not a 100% clear representation of what this duo look like together. The reason why I love Beet so much is because it gives me such a gorgeous vampy colour which is perfect for the Winter. The two mixed together make a beautiful rich deep beetroot colour (funny that?)

Now I was never one to wear much purple on my lips, but I feel that this shade is perfect for girls like me who aren’t quite ready to brave it out and wear full on purple. This combination is amazing because it has the full on effect of being vampy but with pink undertones and a ‘girly’ feel to it. I can’t quite explain it, but once you try it out you will know what I’m talking about. I’m gutted you dolls can’t get the complete feel of the duo, but next time you’re in a MAC store I would definitely recommend that you experiment with the two, it’s perfect for the winter!

5) Honey Love & Trust in Red Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

Honey Love Lipstick with Trust in Red Pro Longwear Lip Pencil

Another Pro Longwear Lip Pencil that I adore! Now I have to say that usually I prefer standard lip pencils to the Pro Longwear range, my reasons being that the latter are usually quite difficult to blend in to a lipstick the way I have described. Pro Longwear Lip Pencils are designed to give you a more saturated and rich colour, and that they do very well. However I find that when ‘colouring in’ for an ombre effect like I do, this can make the consistency of the lip quite lumpy and the colour quite blotchy. Trust in Red however, (and High Energy which I showed you above) doesn’t seem to have that problem! Both of these lip pencils are part of the newer additions to the Pro Longwear range and as result I feel that their consistencies and overall feel on your lips after application are much much better than those that I’ve tried before. For you dolls out there that have had the same problems as I’ve described with the older Pro Longwear Pencils (and have been put off from purchasing anymore as a result) I would advise you ladies to definitely take the risk, it will be worth it! I was pleasantly surprised and I love this shade! It’s a dark pink that verges close to the side of purple without crossing it completely, just how I like it!

So there you have it dolls, my favourite ‘Ombre-effect’ Lip Pencils! I hope it’s inspired some of you dolls to get experimenting, be it with Lip Pencils or any other products you may have lying around. It’s always good to play around with what you have, I’ve discovered some beautiful colour combinations just by mixing products together that I already have at home! And the best perk of that is, you’ll always be the one with the unique shade of lipstick wherever you go 😉 I always get asked about what colour lipstick I’m wearing, but it can be quite long to explain, especially when you’re using 4-5 different shades lol. But start off slow & be sure to let me know if you come across any beaut combinations while experimenting!

IMac More To Love Lip Pencil love my MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks. I have this little ritual where I buy myself a new lipstick, everytime I finish a new semester with good grades in law school. Because I recently finished my bachelor of laws, I wanted to spoil myself with two (!) new MAC lipsticks. I’m going to review them both, and this time I’m starting with MAC Mehr – a beautiful color which already became my new fave lippie. I honestly don’t know why I don’t hear more people about this lovely shade. Can’t wait to show you the swatches!

Let’s start with the outside first. MAC Cosmetics’ original packaging is always black, sleek and chic. I love how they look on my vanity, especially displayed in those cute lipstick holders. Only annoying thing is I can’t see which lipstick is which, but I’ve already kind of memorized their places, so I don’t struggle with that anymore.

Time for swatches! MAC Cosmetics describes this color as a matte dirty blue pink. I definitely see the blue undertones, but there’s also a bit of warmth in this color. As you can see, MAC Mehr has great, opaque pigmentation. It has a matte finish, but isn’t drying at all. It’s actually one of the softest (if not the softest) matte MAC lipstick I own. Also, I love pairing my lipsticks with a matching lipliner. MAC Mehr lipstick goes perfectly with the MAC Soar lip pencil. Definitely a must have combo!

And this is how the color looks on my lips. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t get MAC Mehr earlier. This color is BEAUTIFUL. It’s a pinkish, mauve-ish color, which will look good on a lot of different skintones. I feel like this is a darker, more daring version of the beloved your-lips-but-better lip colors. It’s still neutral enough to wear with a prominent eye, while still adding a good bit of color to your face. The perfect, not too overpowering lippie if you ask me!

In this photo you can see me wearing MAC Mehr with a bit of MAC Soar lip pencil to clean up the edged and overdraw my lips a bit (love doing that). I think this combination looks SO stunning. I’ve always hear everybody talk about the Kylie Jenner combo, which is MAC Brave and MAC Soar, but this one is even prettier if you ask me. The colors look perfectly together and I love how this color is neutral, mauve-ish, but still fresh.

Without a doubt, this lipstick is a big fat yay. It’s definitely my new favorite MAC lipstick and I can’t recommend it enough. If you don’t have MAC Mehr lipstick yet, go out and get (yes, even if you’re chilling in your sweats atm), that’s how much I love it. And get MAC Soar lip pencil as well, as it is the perfect combination. Your lips will be on fleek with those two, I promise ya!
