Temptalia Asks You - What is your go-to lip combo?

What is your go-to lip combo? What lipstick/gloss/whatever combination do you always go-to when you’re in doubt, in a rush, etc.?

For me, it’s gotta be Mari-sheeno lipstick and any gloss really–just has to start with the Mari-sheeno lipstick!

Avon’s Dew Kiss on my lips for moisture with a slick of MAC’s Lustreglass in Flusterose. It’s the perfect understated pink shade and the glossiness lasts for hours.

is it bad that I’ll do all other makeup (foundation, blush, e/s, eyeliner, mascara) but just put on the MAC clear lip conditioner? I have a few lipsticks I like but I always think its a waste b/c when I get a coffee or whatever it comes off. LOL So I barely touch the lippies. πŸ™

For the past few months, the Viva Glam warm holiday palette has been my default mid-tone lip for all occasions. Masque is my default pale lip and Retrofluid is my default darker lip.

Cream O’Spice lipliner, Cafe Matte (Mattene), and C-Thru lipgloss. My go to lipgloss is Lychee Luxe…I love what it does to any lipstick.

Honey Moon l/s with Moonbathe l/g. It’s very neutral on me and I find it goes with pretty much all e/s colours (except maybe pinks). They’re LE but I do have quite a few backups because Honey Moon is my HG. Another one I always seem to grab for is Contessa l/g, unfortunately another LE (MINI too, boo). I’m almost finished it. πŸ™

my go-to is actually Becca Grenadine glossy lip tint. no shimmer, no sparkles, just a sheer red gloss.

as far as MAC, my go to (currently) is Twig-twig lipstick and love nectar lipglass. but i just got Mari-sheeno, and i LOVE it!!! hopefully my Strawbaby lipstick will come in the mail today……….i think i’ll love that one too!

Nouveau Frou l/s and Nico Now l/g – my perfect “donΒ΄t have to think about it” lip

(or any sheer and shimmery gloss I come across)

I like Hug Me. I also love Guerlain’s Kiss Kiss Maxi Shine in Toffee Shine–it is the absolute perfect natural lipcolor for me. A bit rosy, a bit sparkly, very sheer, kind of balmy and it tastes like roses. The price is steep but it is probably the only lipstick tube that will be completely empty when I’m through with it.

For me it’s Snob with any light pink gloss over it like Oyster Girl or my new favorite with it is Viva Glam VI SE lipglass. It’s really all about the pink lips for me.

I usually go with my fav. Chanel lipstick: Sirocco with their Glossimer(lipgloss) in Pagoda over it. Or with MAC I am really into the Viva Glam V l/s with the Viva Glam VI gloss over it.
