Brown Girl’s Guide To Brown Lips: Mid-Range

Kiran gives BritAsia TV viewers an insight into her favourite mid-range lipstick! This is the second of a three part series.

Mid-Range: Giorgio Armani & MAC-

I recently uploaded a post on Instagram about this combination, so it is only fair I mention it in my favourite lipstick combinations right? Not as pricey as the Christian Louboutin combo, but not exactly a ‘drug-store’ combination either, this sits perfectly in the mid-range of my budget.

Yes, you’ve got it! I am talking about my adored Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge Ecstasy’ lipstick in the shade ‘202’ paired with my new favourite lip liner of all times – MAC’s ‘Pro-longwear’ lip pencil in the shade ‘Morning Coffee’. Again, like the Christian Louboutin combination, I like to line and fill my lips with the lip pencil, before dabbing my shade of lipstick gently over my lips.

I, personally, love the shade the Mac lip liner, again, it’s a little darker than the lipstick but I feel like blending the two shades together gives me the most perfect autumnal brown lip, which again I have working for the last couple of months.

The finish of the ‘Rouge Ecstasy’ lipstick is simply divine, it’s rich and creamy, leaving a very satin finish; which again works perfect with the Mac lip liner, as I often find that the lip liner tends to dry my lips a little. The lipstick again is very long lasting, and I don’t find myself topping my lips up much over the course of the day. I am the sort of person that puts my make up on in the morning, and expects it to last, with minimal touch up’s required!

Again, I adore the packaging of the lipstick the most. I love the vibrant red bottle, but what I enjoy the most is the magnetic click – the little touches matter the most to me clearly! I hate loosing lids in my bag, whether that be lipstick lids or pen lids (believe me it’s happened way to many times, for me to not learn from my mistake), I just cannot afford to ruin the inside lining of my bags! Therefore the magnetic click works perfectly for me, as I know for a fact that the lid will not fall off in my bag and cause a big mess!
