My favourite Mauve/Blush lip; Budget Friendly!

by - December 13, 2015

I am so glad to finally post on one of my absolute favourite lip combos, which is super budget friendly, and highly pigmented! Every time I wear this lip I'm always asked the name, and looked at in shock when I reveal the price! Essence's lip liners in "Soft Berry" (My #1 Fav) and "Satin Mauve" are responsible for this mauve/blush tone lip. Sold at Shoppers (Canada) for only $1.99 ($1.19 when they have a sale!) are these two beauties, with no shortage of colours that suit all skin tones. I found that when I purchased Mac's "whirl" lip liner in hopes it would create this look, it did not serve what I craved for and I returned it. However I am a fan of the Whirl lipstick- I digress!                   

Application: I will post a video in the coming days, but I apply my fav lip balm prior just to moisturize my lips, and then I start with Soft Better outlined and applied throughout my lips completely, and I add satin mauve on top to give it that mauve element as a pop.  Both on their own are gorgeous and last all day or at least with no need for more than one re apply, and they are perfect. At the sale price of $1.19 I purchased their entire stock, which is less or about half the price of my fav high end cosmetic brands.

What do you think? Let me know and send me photos of your recreated look!
