MAC Lip Combo | Brave Lipstick & Staunchly Stylish Lip Pencil...

Whether your a big fan of the Kardashian-Jenner family or you absolutely loathe them and their reality TV show, I can almost guarantee the majority of the female population are still lusting after Kylie's nude lip combo! Since the debut of her latest look, showing fuller looking lips, some have speculated that the youngest K has had work done, while others think it's simply down to the art of makeup, either way, MAC have sold out of plenty of nude lipsticks and lip pencils along the way, after her makeup artist revealed that he loves using Mac lip Pencils on Kylie.

I initially went into MAC to purchase the Soar Pencil but as I had anticipated, they had already sold out, the lovely assistant suggested Staunchly Stylish Lip Pencil to go with the Brave Lipstick I had already chosen and trusting her judgement, these are the two items I happily walked away with.

Now it's not the exact combo that Kylie Jenner uses, to be honest, I'm not even sure of the actual combo, some suggest it's Velvet Teddy Lipstick with Whirl Lip Pencil while others say it's Brave lipstick and Soar lip Pencil, whatever the true combination is, it's a nude lip for sure! I love pink toned nudes, which is why I went for this lip combo and I actually really like it! As with any new craze, you experiment and try it with the risk of it not actually suiting you, but I think this is the perfect combo for me ! The tone if these colours really warm my complexion and after years of hating how thin my own lips are, I have been able to make my own lips look much fuller with this pairing! 

Once you buy one MAC lipstick, expect to become instantly addicted! The formula of each lipstick I have tried is so perfect, be in a satin, matte or cremesheen lipstick, I have always loved the formula, they glide on so easily, the matte are a little tougher to work with, and the creamy vanilla scent is so addictive too! Brave is described as a 'pink beige with white pearl' which pretty much sums it up but I would also say it has some brown undertones, perfect paired with a bold eye!

I've never tried a MAC lip pencil and I have to say I'm already in love, the pro longwear lip pencils are slightly different to regular lip pencils with the formula of this being a lot creamier, making it easier to apply. The nib on these are slightly different too, rather than being a sharp point like a regular pencil, these are slightly rounded, I found that I was able to line my lips with ease, even though I have the unsteadiest hand. Staunchly Stylish is described as a 'pinky beige' and again I would say this also has brown undertones and a tad darker than the lipstick.

I love this lip combo and wear it most days, I haven't tried either product separate yet, the combo is just too good, however the lasting power of this combo together is amazing! I actually had to wipe these off at the end of the day! 

Here's the lip combo on me...

Have you tried either of these products from MAC? What do you think to the Kylie Jenner lip combo? Are you still loving it or are you sick of seeing it?
