Why I Cheated On My Favourite Lipstick

I would say that I am quite loyal but I tend to go overboard with that loyalty when it comes to my beauty regimes. If I find a product I love, I will use that and only that for all of eternity. However, I reflected on this and thought what if my loyalty is now turning into pure laziness. There are a million fish in the sea, so, why commit to just one shade of lipstick when you can experiment with a host of different brands and colours. The result was me scouring the market for a new beauty partner-in-crime!

My Favourite Shade: NARS

So I discovered the NARS Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, around 4 years ago and it’s been my go-to tint for pretty much any occasion. Breakfast date, work meetings, night outs…you name it, my lip pencil was my most loyal companion.

P.S: It will always be my first true love!

The Experiment: Nykaa

One day at work as I was perusing through various websites I stumbled upon an ad by Nykaa. A delicious wine tinted lip pencil tempted me to click on it. That is when I entered Narnia.

My New Obsession: Pout Perfect Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

On Other Days: CLINIQUE

On days where I really want to run wild and free I opt for a light, fun option, usually it’s the CLINIQUE Chunky Cherry Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm. I would definitely recommend this one, its super creamy and easy to apply.
