Beauty Tuesday: Current Favourite Lip Combo!


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?

    1. Try patting a translucent powder ontop of your lipstick. Will make it stay much longer!

  19. Hi there! I usually wear darker tones since I have an olive complexion but I'm going to visit the MAC counter to find my version of a nude lip because it looks so pretty! And I love putting a complimentary gloss over my lipsticks...it makes the lips look more pouty I think. Thank you again for another fun post - that last picture made me laugh out loud!

  24. Dear Anna.I love your blogs. We are the same age. I watch everyday and find your vlogs and blogs inspirational and helpful and when I'm having a hard day with work and a toddler and everyday chores I watch your vlogs and often realise that all mums and juggling the same. You are the person who manage to get me back interested in myself after having a baby and also thanks to you I now own far too many nude lipsticks...haha. I love it. Finding your blog and vlogs with Jonathan when my toddler was 8 months and Amelie was about 10 months was the best thing! Keep up the brilliant work and what a wonderful family and person you are.
    I also lost my dad and admire how you are about your loss. X

  31. Hi Anna and Happy New Year! I just wanted to let you know that since the new layout, none of my comments appear which I'm hoping can be fixed. This one, of course, is just to let you know that it has been happening and not to publish of course... Anyway, I have always played nicely with others and just enjoy your posts as well as your vlogs and like the fact that the comments on your blogs are always positive and uplifting as well as informative - just like you!

  36. Hi Anna, you should try Grasshopper gloss from MAC, its green and fades out perfectly with any lipstick you use. My skin is really light and it helps me make the most perfect nudes!
