Back In Time with N Collection

Do you ever like to go through your stash and rediscover old favorites? Since I wasn’t wearing makeup (to help clear up my acne) for so long, I was really itching for *some* makeup to play with… which meant lips! I didn’t want to go too bold with my lip choices, because without more makeup to complement the bold lips, it would make my face look incomplete (at least to me).

This leads us to 3N Lipstick paired with 2N Lipglass! Think of 3N as one of those “my lips but better” (MLBB), with a little extra pink to give lips a natural flush. 2N Lipglass adds the sparkle and the shimmer, complementing the pink hues with some beigey-pink. Add in multi-colored shimmer and you’ve got an easy, oh-so-wearable combination perfect for a neutral look or on its own.

If you can’t get your hands on 3N Lipstick, try Hug Me lipstick instead. If 2N Lipglass eludes you, try Luminary lustreglass (it’ll work well with this combination in particular).

    I was just looking at my 3N lipglass in hopes of pairing it with a neutral lipstick but it’s gone bad now…..has a funny smell :-(.

    The N collection is soooo wonderful. Why couldn’t they have been perm!?

    I love 2N and 4N Lippies. I think High Tea is similar to 2N if memory serves me.

    I love going through my stash for new combinations. I’ll def try this!

    BTW.. I love these ‘retro’ posts. Do some Lure/Bait!!

    I love 3N lipstick, but on me, 3N is more similar to Blankety. In fact I don’t even think I need the two they’re so alike!
    2N is my favourite lipglass of all time so far.. it’s the perfect nude lippie that looks great alone or paired over almost any lipstick! I wish it was still available to buy new.

    Love it! Do you ever wear lipstick without the lipgloss LOL I wish MAC would bring out the N Collection again. Thats one collection I think I would have went crazy getting. Now Im sad lol
