Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk
MAC Syrup Lipstick

While the classic reds and shimmers come out to play for Christmas, it was only a matter of time before I swap them and embrace all things neutral once more.  The latest MLBB contender MAC Lipstick in Syrup is being worn almost daily.  A lustre finish with a sheer, glossy formula.  It reminds me of a more mauve mix of MAC Plumful and Patisserie.  

It is rare that I get excited about lip liners.  I mean a nail polish, a lipstick, new glossy magazines, strong coffee but lip liner?  Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk has become a stash staple.  I have very thin lips and this helps to define them slightly and act as a base for colour.  As I'm a fan of a nude lip, this shade works with a lot of lipsticks in my collection. Okay, most of my collection.

Not one to miss out on jumping on the bandwagon, ahem.  I and everyone else bought MAC Lip Liner in Soar.  A tawny pink shade.  I love the formula.  This is creamy, yet pigmented and stays in place without being too drying.  Also sometimes I skip lipstick altogether as this looks nice blotted all over the lips for a more matte wash of colour.  

A trio of good all rounders, my current favourite more neutral shades.


  1. Ohh that MAC lipstick is so pretty!! I have yet to get my hands on soar :( xx

    1. I've been wearing these non stop! Oh no, hope you track it down soon :)

  2. I've been loving syrup at the minute, I've not tried the lip liners though I'm still a bit in the dark when it comes to lip liners.

    1. It's so nice isn't it? I only wore lip liner before if I was wearing a dark lip colour but I've been loving these everyday shades :)

  3. I love the look of that lipstick shade, Syrup isn't a color I've ever reached for. I haven't tried any lip pencils from Mac, I love the NYX ones though.
