A Drugstore Pink Nude Lip Combo

Last Friday, I went to the drugstore. I was on a mission. I wanted to find a nude matte lipstick. This time, it had to be one that would actually look good on me. 

Easier said than done. I have a couple in my makeup drawer that look lovely on the tube but not so good on me. This one, for example, is beautiful but looks too pale on. If you have a trick for wearing it, please let me know. I guess I should wear it either on top or underneath another shade. What really happens then, is that I end up not wearing it. Anyway...

After a few minutes of staring at many pink-y brown-y lines on my hand I found the perfect natural/pink/coral/nude lipstick by Rimmel London. And it doesn't wash me out. Hooray!  When I got home I realized it was one of the Lasting Finish ones by Kate Moss. Double Hooray! Aha! moment. As you can see, it took me quite a while to realize it was "that" lipstick. Better late than never.

So here it is...

Later that day (prepare for it) I remembered the lip liner I 
bought a few months ago, that I liked so much, also by Rimmel London. So yes, dear reader, triple Hooray! Lip combo: check.

Lasting Finish lip liner in 049 Natural is, to me, the perfect natural pink nude liner. 

When you pair these two, good things happen. The lipstick is enhanced, and creamier, and it lasts longer on your lips. This is how it looks under direct sunlight. It's very understated but that's the good part of a nude lip right? Great with smokey eyes!

Hello big shades...ha!

Have you tried this combo? What's your go-to lip combo?
