Remember how I mentioned I love getting things in sets? It's not like I have to have all of something, but it's more appropriate or soothing to my OCD little heart to get things in multiples, like threes. Perfect example, lip products! I feel more 'complete' if I have a liner, lipstick, and gloss. This compulsion has had me on a MAC-hunt to drum up some matching lip trios that go beautifully together.
My first bright combo is a fave- coral. Oh man, Vegas Volt, Crosswires, Ever Hip, Costa Chic....on and on....but no one mentions CB96. What color is that? By MAC? Yep, it's mentioned as being an orange, but I think it's a gorgeous, shimmery almost frosted coral that gives your lips a pop. Add Lasting Sensation lip pencil and a nice golden pink of Posh It Up Plushglass and I fell in love.
Take a look!
Lasting Sensation is described as 'bright coral' and it is. It's a perfectly vivid coral-orange. I lurves it. It glides on smoothly, holds its color and doesn't bleed, even with lipstick on top. $15.00 1.45g
CB96 is described as 'bright pinky orange with pearl'...to me pinky orange = coral. It's a Frost lipstick by MAC and it doesn't conjure up Palm Beach 1985. It's a nice, shimmering color where the pearl lends a plumping visual effect that keeps your lips from looking flat. $16.00 3g
|I love how this is no where near the actual lipstick color...|
oh MAC your online swatches amuse me!
Posh It Up- it's like Nymphette but more pink, a bit deeper pink if you will. It's barely noticeable and in the jar you'd swear they're twins. But they're not, Posh It Up is a more rosy version. I'll do a comparison post soon so you can see what I mean. $20.00 4.2 mL
Here are all three, in matching heaven- I was really happy with how coordinated these three look together.
I can see myself wearing this combo in the Spring when I want it to be warm outside- what do you think? Would you wear this trio?
Have a great day,
