MAC Lip Erase ($16) A flesh-toned balm that visually neutralizes and erases natural colour from the lip. Shine- and texture-free. Available in a choice of two shades for use on light to medium skin tones.
This is a product everyone must have. It does what it claims to do: erases lips. No more using foundation or concealer to minimize the natural color of your lips. By “erasing” your natural lip color, it allows for lipgloss or lipstick to show up true to color. Finally! No more wondering whether the lipcolor you just bought will appear the same on your lips. Also, if you want that perfect nude lip color, all you have to do is apply Lip Erase and some clear gloss and you’ve got the perfect nude lip color. Lip erase is a balm-like texture that can be a tad bit drying, but that problem can easily be solved by exfoliating and moisturizing beforehand. It is a MAC Pro product so you can only get it off the MAC Pro site if you have their card. If you don’t have their card, you can still get it by visiting a MAC Pro store. It is available in two colors: Dim and Pale. I suggest you get it in “Dim” unless you are really truly pale then get it in “Pale.”
MAC Magic, Mirth, and Mischief Put a Spell On You Pink Lip Bag ($36) Pink puts a spell on you, and with its trio of Dream Lipstick, Dervish Lip Pencil and Baby Sparks Dazzleglass, this lip kit is no different. Comes in a small, stylish rectangular makeup bag of polished silvery-pewter vinyl, the zip adorned with a round bead and grosgrain ribbon detail. Limited edition.
I love pink lip color. The lipstick, Dream, is a glaze lipstick. The color is more of a sheer, color and it provides a sheen/shine. It reminds me of dark, dusty rose color. Baby Sparks Dazzleglass has a lot of sparkle. A lot. It certainly gave my lips a lot of “bling” and gave the illusion of fuller lips. I love the sheer pink color. It’s perfect for all year round use. Dervish lip pencil is a pink mauve color that gave my lips a perk of color. It’s like a YLBB (Your Lips But Better) color. Out of the 2 lip bags, this is the one I got, because this is goes perfectly with a smoky eye.
MAC Magic, Mirth, and Mischief House of Mirth Deep Lip Bag ($36) Deep and mirthfully rich, this lip kit features Fantasia Lipstick, Cedar Lip Pencil and Get Rich Quick Dazzleglass. Comes in a small, stylish rectangular makeup bag of polished silvery-pewter vinyl, the zip adorned with a round bead and grosgrain ribbon detail. Limited edition.
I actually didn’t get this because I tend to shy away from dark lip colors. I’m not bold enough to rock dark lips even though I want to. When I tried it, it wasn’t as dark as I expected. Fantasia, the lipstick, was a deep rosy color. I felt this lipstick was more pigmented and not as sheer as the lipstick in the Put a Spell On You Pink Lip Bag. If I wasn’t so scared of dark lip colors, I would have gotten this too.

Smashbox Wicked Lovely Doubletake Lip Color ($22) is a double-ended lip pencil and creamy lip color in a new soft pink nude shade that perfectly complements a sensual smoky eye. The vitamin-packed formula has caffeine and nourishing wheat glycerides to moisturize and protect lips.
Wicked Lovely Doubletake Lip Color comes in one color, Gossamer. It is a light pink lip color. It’s a perfect match for a smokey eye look. Be sure to moisturize and buff your lips before using the doubletake lip color because it can accentuate dryness. I don’t use this when I’m tan because it can make me look a little washed-out since it is a light pink color. If I do use this when I am tanned, I make sure to use a lip gloss with a little color to bring color to my lips.

I have this in Hazel, and the Smoothing Lip Pencil glides on effortlessly. These lip pencil colors go hand-in-hand with Shiseido Perfect Rouge. The brush on the end of the lip pencil is great for blending and applying lipcolor.
