Barbie Lip Combo

MAC Saint Germain + NYX Dolly Pink

When I say I've been wearing this lip combination every day, I literally mean every. single. day. I've never even done that with red lipstick, and I consider that my signature color (prepare yourself, Red, you may have to share this title of distinction now!)

PS I've finally followed the advice of my favorite YouTube beauty gurus and started outlining and coloring my lips in with pencil before applying my lipstick, and it's like a miracle! It makes my lipstick last longer and stay in place, especially non-matte formulas, like this MAC Saint Germain, which is an Amplified. Why was I lazy and not bother to try this before?
