lip combo

A recent discovery of a lip combo: MAC Viva Glam Gaga lipstick and NYX Megashine lipgloss in Smokey Look. These two have been sitting untouched in my drawer for the longest time. Gaga is too cool-toned to be worn alone, while Smokey Look is too dark of a natural lip color to be worn on my already pigmented lips. Together they work really well and make up for their cons.

The reason I haven't given up on them is because they both have such moisturizing formulas and give off a nice finish. Gaga is a lustre- its fairly pigmented and very creamy. Smokey Look has the best formula for a lipgloss- its extremely pigmented, non-sticky, and very glossy in a nice subtle way (too bad the color didn't work for me!)

I'm glad I can now put them to their use and will be playing with other lip products that have been sitting around. Any lip combos you guys like to do?

I've also been trying to get my hands on Revlon's lip butters or Maybelline's Babylips, but not sure if they are worth getting. There are so many colors to choose from. Any thoughts on them?


  1. What a great combo! <3
    I'm also trying to get a hold of Revlon lip butters. :)
    I have one Maybelline baby lips in grape but I don't really care for it.

  2. I agree, Gaga hardly looks good on anyone worn alone, but this combo is gorgeous. Looks great on you! You should def pick up the Revlon lip butters, I honestly haven't touched any other lip product since buying almost two months ago!

  3. Pretty! Try the baby lips, they're only like $3 at Walmart and I'm slightly over the lip butters

  4. I have been pairing my Viva Glam with Mac's boybait and its definitely showing up more nude than pink. I really love the light pink lip on you! I need to try it!!


  5. Great combo, i love viva glam gaga


I love reading all of your comments!
