Pretty Nude Lips – Rimmel’s Coral Britannia

It’s great to get back into the blogging groove. I honestly think I’ve got my beauty mojo back. I’ve got loads of video and blog post ideas swirling round my head and I even made myself a weekly blog planner where I plan to post on samloves.com at least once a week.  Woohoo, get me trying to get my blog act together!

On to the lipstick….!

This little gem has become my go-to, easy to wear and just slap on during the day lippie. I love the creamy moisturising formula and I love how the peachy coral tone gives a really healthy brightening effect to the face. One of my favourite high street lipsticks for sure. I picked mine up at Boots.

Lip Lover’s Heaven – Nars Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret

NARS DIGITAL WORLD LIP COLLECTION IBERICO DESCANSO YU CRUELLA TORRES DEL PLAINE SAM LOVES

NARS DIGITAL WORLD LIP COLLECTION IBERICO DESCANSO YU CRUELLA TORRES DEL PLAINE SAM LOVESOn a random pit stop to Spacenk, I spied this absolute gem at the Christmas counter. First of all, Nars’ Lip Pencils have been on my radar for a while, but they never quite made it in to my basket- until now. The eye pencils on their own cost £18 each but the joy of this set is that you get 5 for £32. So that’s 5 pencils for the price of less than 2. That’s good economics – I had to have it.

Say hello to the Digital World Lip Pencil Confrette.

Who could resist these 5 shades?

  • Satin Lip Pencil Torres Del Paine
  • Satin Lip Pencil Descanso
  • Satin Lip Pencil Yu
  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Iberico
  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Cruella

Now my love for a bold lip is well documented and I am so impressed with the range of colours – from everyday nudes to sumptuous reds. The pencils are so versatile. The colour intensity on the first swipe on to the lips is insane and they all have really good staying power – even after eating.

A lip colour for every occasion:

MAC Lady Danger

MAC LADY DANGER SAM LOVES

MAC Lady Danger – a phenomenal matte lipstick.

I just can’t get enough of this – it’s a bright, vivid, orangey red that adds a perfect pop of colour. I’ve been wearing this look a lot during the day – with a bit of eyeliner, usual lashings of mascara and blush.

I’m happy to report it also wears off really nicely leaving a slight stain on the lips. I’d also recommend prepping the lips beforehand with lip balm to prevent lips from drying out.

Tip– orange based red lipsticks like Lady Danger look best with a peach blush and for this look I used NARS Orgasm on my cheeks.

I must add that the lipstick is slightly more orangey than my camera has managed to capture.

Yep, a total show stopper!

Lips: MAC Lady Danger – available at MAC and Debenhams
Foundation: Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation – Boots
Blush: NARS Orgasm – Sephora and Nars
Mascara: Maybelline The Falsies – Boots
Eyeliner: Maybelline Gel Eyeliner – Boots
