A Rose/Brown/Mauve Lip Obsession

Can't stop won't stop wearing these colours. Strangely enough all 3 of the products I've been obsessed with lately come in the oh-so-handy chubby pencil packaging. This means that no lip liner is required! The less time you have to spend fussing over your lipstick application, the more time you have to fuss over Christmas candy. Here are my top picks:

1. L'Oreal La Laque "Lacque-y Charm"
The warmest of the bunch, with a soft shiny finish that will last you well into your lunch hour.

2. NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil "Bahama"
Bahama is matte mauve brown lips at their best. It's chic, it makes a statement without being too out there, and it makes your teeth look whiter. Win, win, win!

3. NARS Satin Lip Pencil "Rikugien"
Rikigien is a Satin pencil from NARS, meaning that it does impart a bit of a sheen. It also has a slight hint of frost which makes it photograph paler than it appears in real life. It's a gorgeous gown-up nude rose brown colour that you can apply liberally without the need of a mirror. I got a bit too happy with my application and drew over the lines but it's nothing the swipe of a finger can't fix!

Are you aboard the darker rose lip colour train? What lipsticks are you reaching for these days?
