They're Real Beyond Purple Lips | Beauty

Hello lovelies! Last week on Instagram I posted this look and said I'd fill you all in on what I'm wearing on my lips. It wasn't just a normal lipstick.. I came up with my own little concoction so here it is!

So it's super easy.. Benefit's They're Real push-up liner in Beyond Purple and Gerard Cosmetic's Buttercup lipstick. The Benefit liner (which I have reviewed here) was used to line my lips and after I lined it, I used a small lip brush to blend the product towards the centre of my lips. I then applied Buttercup (also reviewed here) to the centre of my lips and blended it towards the purple liner.

It became a really beautiful purple-pink lip colour which felt surprisingly comfortable on the lips and stayed really well. I honestly didn't wear it for that long but for the couple of hours that I did, it didn't smudge or anything like that. Because the liner is smudge-proof and very long lasting, I think it acted as a great base for the lipstick.

For my base, I used Mac Cosmetic's Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, Maybelline Fit Me powder in 120, Benefit's Hoola bronzer, Benefit's Watts Up highlighter and a little bit of Soap & Glory's Glow All Out luminizing face powder. On my eyes, I used Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette, Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama gel liner in black and Too Faced's Better Than Sex mascara. I really loved the overall look!

What do you think of this look? Do you like the lip colour? I thought that since it's such a great eye liner that doesn't budge.. Why not try it as a lip liner? And it worked so well. Do you ever use products for something other than intended? I love finding new ways to use things.

I hope you liked this type of post. Would you like to see more makeup looks? Thank you for reading!
