Lil Miss Lippy: My lip combo of the day :)

Hi guys! I've been sporting all sorts of lip colours lately - nudes, reds, corals and pinks.

Today, I couldn't make up my mind! I started off by wearing 'Tea Rose' by Nyx (my favourite 'Drug Store' lipstick) and then decided that it didn't complement my makeup.

I then put 'Max Factor's Pink Brandy' lipstick on and created this pinky-corally look:


  Nyx Tea Rose - I would describe it as a medium pink with mauve-ish undertones on my lips.

Max Factor Pink Brandy Lipstick -I would describe it as a dark coral with hints of pink on my lips.


 Tea Rose + Pink Brandy =

Note: My Mac Shade is C4 (I'm very yellow toned). I think that this a nice colour for the day time. It's not over the top.. and not too pale either. Blue toned lippies don't really suit me - so this is a nice alternative.

I love mixing lip colours to make a gorgeous new shade! Does anybody else do this?

Love from Roshas xxx

*Sorry about the rubbish photos.. I didn't use flash and then the photos ended up looking real dull. I ended up adding light to the background.. and it's completely washing out the colours.  I tried to take swatch photos but they looked horrible!
