Product Love – Cream Lip Stain & No Bleeding Lips Liner

One of things I receive constant compliments on is my love affair with lip colour. I’ve always been blessed with beautiful, full lips, however it’s only been in the past few years that I’ve been bold enough to embrace them, and show them off with bright, bold colours.

Selfies Wearing Lip Stain

During this time I have been on the hunt for the perfect combination of a lipstick and liner that would give the results I craved – Lasting, high-pigmented colour that wouldn’t bleed!

Through years of trial and error, I finally stumbled upon the dream team – Sephora brand’s cream lip stain and No Cosmetics’ No Bleeding Lips liner. In basically every photo you see of me posted here or on my insta feed, I will no doubt be wearing this stellar combination.

Lipstain and Lip Liner

I’ve amassed a modest collection of 7 shades of this lip colour – Each one as perfect as the next. The colours are high-pigmented and last throughout the day – I find that I only need to reapply a bit after a meal.

As a touch of dry lips is par for the course as far as lip stains are concerned, I make sure to exfoliate my lips, and apply a balm (I prefer Fresh’s Sugar lip treatments) or a lip BB (Bite makes a great one) before application.

The No Bleeding Lips liner is invisible, which is pretty darn wicked. It should also be applied before the stain – I prefer to line the outer edge of my lips. This stuff truly lives up to it’s name – Without it, unfortunately my dream lip stain still runs. However, together, they prove to be one dynamic duo!

Shop the collection below, give the combo a try, and let me know what you think in the comments below!

The (Second) Most Wonderful Time of The Year – For Sephora Addicts

As I’m sure all my fellow make-up addicts know, the second most wonderful time of the year for Sephora shoppers is heading into it’s final day! The Spring Beauty Insider sale is the second best time of the year to stock up on all of your favourites next to the Fall sale (which has a greater discount).

I typically use the Fall sale to do a major stock-up, and as an opportunity to buy fun value sets that come out in time for the Holidays. Because of this, when the Spring sale rolls around, I usually only have to stock up on a few of the things I go through quite regularly throughout the year such as primers, foundation and brow pomade.

With this in mind, I decided to create this post focused on the staples of my morning routine rather than the more fun specialty items! Noticeably absent are my concealer and eyeliner as I still purchase these from the drugstore (Maybelline).

Fortunately, most of these items still last me about a year or more each so right now I only have to place a small order (my bank account is fairly thankful). I will also stock up on Sephora Collection’s Fiber Masks as I’m fairly in love with them right now (watch for another post dedicated to these in the coming weeks).

All of these products are tried and true, since I use them daily, so I can’t recommend them enough – I’m often asked what I use for my daily make-up so, alas, here is the long awaited post in a quick guide format (with links)!
