We all know that the MAC lipstick combo to be wearing right now is Velvet Teddy and Whirl (which I obviously will be investing in at some point!), but after experimenting and making a few cheeky purchases, I have found another combination that will see me nicely through spring.  Step forward lip pencil in Dervish and cream sheen lipstick in Creme Cup!  Both are nude pink colours, and Dervish especially is a great shade that is almost an exact match for my lips and therefore makes it easy to line them and blend in.  

My bottom lip is pretty full, but my top lip is not so much, so I line it to try and create a fuller look without going too over the top.  I've been using this combination for a week or so, and though I still need some more practise with keeping my hand steady and blending the liner in properly, I really like the look and can see myself wearing it non stop!  

I see this as a lighter, more subtle version of the Kylie Jenner lip look, and ideal if you want to try the lined lip trend that is a bit more natural looking.  

What do you think of this look?  Have you tried any of these shades? xx 



  1. You look incredible! I had completely forgotten about Creme Cup and reckon it would suit me better than Velvet Teddy :)

  2. Oooh I do love Creme Cup! They look gorgeous together :) I definitely won't be able to keep my hand still with the lip liner! x

  3. I absolutely love this look! I have creme cup so i really want to try that liner to go with it as it looks great on you - much more subtle than the usual Brave/whirl combo :)

  6. This looks to be a lovely combination, and it's so refreshing to see people wear something other than Velvet Teddy and Whirl!
