The Kylie Jenner Lip
Ok, I am about to admit to the world that I have had a secret crush on Kylie Jenner's makeup ever since she stepped out with that lip for her sisters wedding last year. I think you'll know which I'm talking about.
Kylie's makeup is perfectly contoured with the right amount of everything - brows defined check, highlighter on top of cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid's bow check, smokey brown eyes check, lashings of mascara check, bronzer check, and pouty lips check.
Whilst surfing the net to find out what lip products Kylie uses, I found out that MAC 'Soar' lip pencil was used to achieve her statement pouty lip. I was excited to come across this information because it was one that I had in my collection and has been a favourite of mine for some time now.
However trying to source more of the said lip pencil has been tricky! In my recent trip to the US, Soar had been sold out of all the MAC stores I visited as well as online. So whilst I've been anxiously waiting for new stock to arrive of this very in demand lip pencil I've had to look for alternative products that will achieve the same effect.
Good thing is that I didn't have to go too far! In a recent NARS haul I bought the Audacious Lipstick in 'Anita' only because it had my name on it - seriously! Having said that though, this lipstick...are you ready...is Soar lip pencil in a bullet! No lip pencil required you just slap it right on from the bullet and hey presto you have the Kylie Jenner lip.
This is the first lipstick from the collection I've tried and I am really impressed - the texture is creamy on application but gives you a matte finish and lasts through eating, drinking, chatting you name it.
Now I'm off to buy me some more of 'Anita' before I hear "sorry, it's out of stock".
