I realise I stopped doing monthly favourites posts a while back...the reason for this was simply because I do not feel like I buy enough beauty products to warrant a blog post every month! But now & then when I do come across something that I like I always do my best to share it with you all. Here is my most recent favourite nude lip combination that I'm absolutely loving recently! The products in question are MAC's Honeylove and NARS Turkish Delight gloss (which I've blogged about before). I bought Honeylove last year after watching a YouTube review describing it as "the perfect Brigitte Bardot nude". I was sold. But when I tried it on myself I found it way too matte, drying and quite honestly thought it made me look like a corpse. I was disappointed and decided it was just one of those shades that didn't work for me.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I was at the Gleam Christmas party and saw Victoria from In the Frow wearing the most beautiful nude lip (though let's be honest - she always looks gorgeous anyway!). Imagine my surprise when she told me it was Honeylove...the lipstick was coming back to haunt me! She suggested I try it with a gloss on top. So I gave it a second chance - and have been loving it ever since! A nude gloss like NARS Turkish Delight really does make all the difference to such a matte lipstick, and I'm so glad I repurchased it! I'll be the first to admit I own about 10-15 nude lipsticks that to some people probably look exactly the same but I can't help it but feel on top of the world when I find another one to add to my collection!
What's your favourite nude lip combo? And have you ever tried MAC's Honeylove?
