What’s your current favorite bold lip color combination?

I actually played with ColourPop’s Cloudy Pressed Glitter patted on top of It’s Faux Lux Lipstick, and I loved how it looked (though the texture of it all took some getting used to).

I’m not the person who does lip combination, I actually don’t own / use lip liners or glosses, only lipstick. My bold lip color go-to is definitively a deep burgundy, like MAC Diva or Studded Kiss.

Oh, I’ve had a few I’ve loved this past month or so!
1.) MAC Starstruck lipstick with Star Memoir Lipglass when I’m in a purplish mood
2.)YSL x Zoe Kravitz Scout’s Red with just a smidge of Fenty Gloss Bomb in Cheeky for a gorgeous warmer red lip,

Bold lips to me generally means a red. I love red lipstick and have tons of them. I love Elizabeth Arden Red Door, Fenty Stunna Uncensured, PMGL Major Red and Ilia 99 Red Balloons. Oh, and Nars Cruella. Love me some reds!! I use the MAC Night Moth lip pencil under some reds to make them deeper and more vampy. That lip pencil is so versatile and you wouldn’t think so given how dark it is but it really changes the look of lipsticks and gives you so many options. Good reason why it is my favorite lip pencil.

My favourite lip combination involves a bronzey brown/red shade with Sephora’s Festival Lights or Hong Kong by Night on top for that extra metallic gleam.

I don’t have a current favorite, as I haven’t worn much this last month. The last one I wore was Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Black Truffle with NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Subversive Socialite. SS is a great match for Black Truffle.

1) MAC Diva + MAC Viva Glam I = A stunning matte brick red.
2) ColourPop Bichette Lippie Pencil + Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red = A ridiculously gorgeous blue red.
