Kylie Jenner's Lips // My Interpretation!

Is there a bandwagon I don't jump on?  Yup... that's right... there isn't.  The whole shallow world of Kardashian obsessives (and I'm one of the main ones out there, trust me) have had a whole boat load of questions and theories based on Kylie Jenner's ever growing lips.  I don't see how she hasn't had work done personally but if you tell me it's JUST make-up artist tricks then of course I'm going to try it out for myself!

The consensus out in the beauty world is that she uses MAC Soar lip pencil teamed with MAC Brave lipstick.  Now, I've had Brave for a little while and everywhere I turned Soar is sold out so I just opted for a high street staple in Rimmel's Eastend Snob (which is btw, according to the gorge Amelia a perfect dupe for Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk).  

You can see the two shades are very similar (outline is Eastend Snob, inner is Brave).

And here is me with a slight over lined lip and the products in question.  I must admit it is love BUT you've got to get the right make-up look to make this pairing.  When I first tried it, I had my usually shimmer smoky eye and a lot of highlight (the more shimmer, the more the inner glitter ball me is satisfied) but alas it looked odd.  However, matte everything down and it works.  Another reason I love this combo is the longevity - matte lasts.  Who doesn't love a long lasting lip?

What do you think of this look?  Are you a fan?  Have you tried it and if so, what products have you used?

Elemis QVC UK TSV // 16th November 2014

Hi peeps!!  Long time no speak I know but I thought I best update you on the upcoming Christmas TSV from Elemis!

It has the following items:

Skin Nourishing Shower Cream 300ml
Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 200ml
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream 30ml
Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail Cream 20ml
Jasmine and Rose Milk Bath 125ml
Skin Nourishing Body Cream 50ml

If you're a PCMC user then it is a no brainer to be honest as it'll be the £40 ish mark and on full 4 easy pays.  The Christmas TSVs are always good but I don't know... I think they've done better.  Some small sizes are creeping in and usually the do more full sized items.  Last year and the year's before were definitely better value for money in my opinion.  But it's still Elemis, it's still good value, I'll probably still buy 4!

Happy shopping!
