My New Favourite Coral Lip Combo: Mouth Off lip pencil and Fresh Salmon lipstick ♥

This is a super-late upload of a post I made a few weeks ago! I hope its not too late though :)

As I mentioned in one of my posts earlier, I was really underwhelmed by the MAC Spring Colour Forecast collection, while I loved the Too Fabulous collection, released the same day. Too Fabulous unleashed beautiful mineralized blushes, lip liners and lipglosses, and while Spring Colour Forecast released colours I felt I've seen before. When I first saw Spring Colour Forecast, I swatched the eyeshadows and blushes, and didn't bother with the lip products. I went back to the MAC store a week later, curious about the lip products this time as I missed them previously. Of the lip products, only Bubblegum and Fresh Salmon stood out to me. And when I tried on Fresh Salmon on my lips, I was in-love! The MA's complimented me on my lip choice and told me that they only had 1 tube left of Fresh Salmon, so I took it! The MA suggested I try Mouth Off lip pencil as well. At first I was skeptical, as I didn't feel as though I needed a lip pencil for this one. When I tried it on however, I was surprised the difference it made to the whole look so I took that as well!

Corals are in this season, and I'm happy I've found an amazing coral combo! Keep reading for more photos, reviews and swatches! ♥

Fresh Salmon lipstick is a medium-toned coral colour, with a gold sheen. It's a lustre finish so its moisturising on the lips and the colour is buildable. It is from the MAC Spring Colour Forecast collection.

Mouth Off lip pencil is a bright coral colour that's perfect for coral lipsticks. It is one of the new lip pencils from Too Fabulous, which are pigmented and soft to apply! I just love this one. ♥

  9. @Imo- Nope, no gloss at all. Just a lip liner and the lipstick &hearts

    @Kelly - Ever Hip will look so pretty on you! I stay away from corals like Ever Hip, because I just don't think bright corals look good on me :(

    @tris1978ton- Salmon pink is a colour though :) Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

    @MW - The lipstick is a lustre so its pretty sheer. You could at least try it though :)
