I remember when ‘concealer lips’ were a thing. In years 8/9 of high school, I almost always covered my lips in the palest ivory shade of ‘Dream Matte Mousse’ from Maybelline (which I thought looked the biz). Especially when teamed with spidery, crusty eyelashes and my Bench jacket – thumb holes includes.
Finally, after many years of experimenting with makeup – I have at long last found my tone in nude lipstick – with much trial and error I might add. My first ever high-end lipstick ever purchase was ‘Angel’ by MAC, simply because it was rumoured to be one of Kim KW’s favourites! It truly did nothing for me, far too baby pink in tone and if anything, it only exacerbated my natural flush. I still have it now. It lives on in my makeup collection as a warning incase I forget what i’ve learned and decide to dabble with bubblegum pink lips again.
