Your prayers have been answered. I am now releasing my favorite lip duo out to the world for all to see (and copy). Who said this blog was just pure, frivolous fun?
Seriously, who said that? (Thank you.)
Anyway, last fall I received my very first Lip Factory box, and inside there were these two products:
A very gorgeous wine colored lipstick from Palladio (in the shade Wine Shine, aptly) and a beautifully pigmented lipgloss from Medusa’s Makeup called Smooch. Ermagawd. Lovely on their own, but layered together it performs a magic-like situation upon the lips that’s just heaven.
First of all, the lipstick is a perfect fall color. And personally, I think my skin tone looks best with wine or plum lips. Red is too prostitutey, pink is too shazam! I’ve got pink lips!, and nudes just disappear into the abyss of nothingness. But wine. Wine is divine.
Now that I’ve explained all that, I know you’re saying to yourself that it’s not fall. I know this. Trust me, I keep track of how quickly fall and winter can just go to Hell and get me right back to spring where I belong. So I am well aware that the season for dark, sultry lips is behind us right now. However! I love what I love and that’s the end of that. Can’t argue with that kind of logic, now can you?
Here is a selfie:
I know, my photo skills are seriously on point. If this blogging thing doesn’t pan out, I can take selfies for a living. Or just continue doing what I already do on an everyday basis … which is take selfies. Have you seen my Instagram? No? Well, clearly something is wrong with you.
Back to my point.
The Medusa’s Makeup lipgloss is fabulous. It also smells like grapes. And it’s not sticky in the slightest. When this tube runs out, it will be the only lipgloss I own that I will actually miss. That’s not even an exaggeration cuz I just love using up and throwing out products. But not this one. This one has to last FOREVER.
So there you have it. My favorite lip duo revealed in all it’s glory. What’s your favorite duo? Comment and let me know. I’d love to try it out.
