Kylie Jenners lip kits have taken the world by storm. But they are pricey (especially if you live in the UK) and I don't actually like her liquid lipstick formula. The drugstore have cottoned on to this craze and have started to bring out lip kits at a super cheap price. Although I do find liquid lipsticks hit and miss at the best times and budget ones tend to be more miss. So today I thought I'd share my favourite lipsticks and lipliner that matches them...
ColourPop Echo Park | $6 | POST and La Girl Liner | £3
ColourPops Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks have to be one of my favourite formulas. Although they are not the most long lasting they are so comfortable and affordable. Echo Park is a really nice Peachy everyday, nude shade. I like to pair it with LA Girls Semi permanent lip liner in the shade Natural. Which is a true nude - it's not too Pink or too Brown. The formula is nice, easy to apply, pigmented and comfortable. This actually goes really well with any nude shade.
Jeffree Star Androgyny | £16 | POST and Maybelline Lip Liner | £3.99
My love for Jeffree Stars Velour Liquid Lips is well documented on this blog. The formula really is spot on - they're easy to apply, well pigmented, non drying and so long lasting! They reapply well and don't sit in any fine lines or exaggerate lines in the lips. The shade Androgyny has to be one of my most worn shades from my collection. It's a Mauve Purple colour, that can still be worn everyday but it's something a bit more than a nude. I like to pair this with Maybellines lip liner in the shade Velvet Beige. Which is a Pink Brown colour. I have read that this has Silver shimmer in it, but I've not ever noticed it! The pencil is super creamy and pigmented. It's so easy to outline and fill in the lips. The shade doesn't compliment Androgyny perfectly but it doesn't alter the colour and makes the perfect base.
ColourPop Calypso | $6 | POST and New Look Lip Liner Toffee | £2.50
Another ColourPop Ultra Satin lip, this time in the shade Calypso. Which is a dusky Purple nude colour. It's slightly more Brown than Androgyny though. It's another great everyday shade in the trusty ColourPop formula. I like to pair with New Looks Toffee Liner. The shade is more of a nude Brown. But this compliments the Brown undertones in Calypso. I also find that this helps the liquid lipstick last a little bit longer. The formula is creamy and doesn't drag in the lips, it's well pigmented and easy to use. This is one of my most reached for combinations.
Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin | £16 | POST and Makeup Revolution Lip Kit | £6 (as part of a set)
Another combination that I love is Celebrity Skin and Makeup Revolutions Lip Liner (this is part of their lip kit set but I can't find it to link individually). Celebrity Skin is a pale nude colour and Makeup Revolution liner in the shade Noble is more of a warm Brown. Celebrity Skin is a great natural everyday shade, but I like my nudes a bit more bold, which is why I pair it with Noble . Although Celebrity Skin is very pigmented it doesn't make too much of a difference - just a subtle change. The formula of the lip pencil is so good. One of the best I've come across in the drugstore. It's very creamy and really pigmented. It some how makes my lips look a bit more plump. It's also very long lasting and matte without being drying.
Lottie London Slay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Werk it | £5.95 and Lottie London Lip Liner in Fleek | £3.50
Lottie London actually have their own affordable lip kits which are brilliant for there price (see this post for more details) But I picked Werk It as a single. The shade is a beautiful Pinky Brown nude. The formula is well pigmented, long-lasting and not drying at all. It's actually one of the best affordable one I've tried. I like to pair this with the Lottie London lip pencil in Fleek. Which is a warm Brown nude colour. This is actually from one of their lip kits. The formula of this pencil is so creamy - I've had to sharpen it every time I've used it. It's also very pigmented and sits really nice on the lips and under liquid lipsticks. Werk it and Fleek make a really nice warm Pinky, Brown colour.
There are some of my favourite lipsticks and lip pencil combinations.
