Temptalia Asks You – What’s your favorite lip combination?

What’s your favorite lip combination? What mix of lipstick, gloss, or what-have-you makes your pucker stand out and call for attention? Perhaps tell us your favorite bold combination and favorite everyday combination, if that helps you to narrow it down!

I just love creating combinations, but there aren’t that many I end up revisiting (because I’m too busy finding new ones!). For awhile, I loved Fashionably Fuchsia lipstick + pinkish-purple glosses (Sweetie Cake, Hothouse). My standby combo is Mari-sheeno lipstick + a peachy/coral gloss (like Tartlette, Pink Grapefruit, Lychee Luxe).

I have a few favorites, but i think the ultimate for me is Strawberry Blonde lipstick with any gold or pinky-peach gloss on top (Instant Gold, Love Nectar, Lip 65, Fashion Pack……you name it!)

I gots a few! 🙂

– Brew w/ Underage
– Myth w/ C-Thru
– Freckletone w/ Florabundance

…and throw Love Nectar in there too..somewhere, haha. 😀

I just wore some super dooper red lips to work yesterday and got a flurry of attention! I definitely think this will be one I wear often this season. It’s NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella with NARS Salsa Lip Pencil. To give it a little bit of shine, I finish it with Chanel Glossimer in Spark!


Honey Moon l/s with Moonbathe l/g. 🙂 I want to stab myself in the eye because Honey Moon is LE. I’m gonna miss it when I’ve finished mine. *sniff*

Lovely combo, Skyler! Aww! I am sure you’ll find a new favorite, though – so far I keep finding new favorites all the time that I haven’t gone through any old favorites, lol!

I love mixing Hothouse with any nude or light colored lipstick…I love Soft Lust with Hothouse. Another combination I wore recently was Overrich with Apex 3D glass or with Silly Girl. I just loved the effect on me.

my fav combo is by Clinique:
Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick No.15 All Heart,
with Liquid Lipstick No.09 Pearly Pink.
everytime i wear it,i get lost of compliments.
for everyday it is just a clear gloss for me,any brand,(i never tried lipglass before,but i definitely will),it works well with my always-dramatic smokey eyes 😀

oh,and Helena Rubinstein No.63 Eclectic is also a favourite.
it is scary dark violet in the tube,but if You put on,it turns into a light,but recognisable lilac shine on the lips. my fav color is lilac anyway…

Awesome! I generally just wear chapstick because I don’t wear full makeup everyday anymore, but if I wear eye makeup, you can bet I have lipstick and lipglass on!
