Kim in particular is a make-up icon of mine, and I love to recreate her red carpet looks. One thing she is famous for, is her perfect nude lip. It's difficult to know what she uses exactly, but I'm very pleased to report that I have found the ultimate nude lipstick from Lippy Girl, combined with a gloss from Smashbox. Let's take a look, shall we?
This nude shade is called Ski Bunny, and it's a stunning nude shade, which is comparable to Creme Cup by MAC, only less pink. It has a matte finish, but it doesn't feel drying on your lips. It glides on creamily and smoothly. I did find that it clung to any dry patches on my lips slightly, so be sure to moisturise your lips well before applying it. It's incredibly pigmented and lasts all day on the lips. What I love about this nude shade is that it has a slight pinkish tone to it, so it avoids the dreaded foundation lip look! It's not a flat matte colour, it has such a beautiful finish.
It's such a versatile colour too - it looks incredible when layered over different lip pencils. I'm currently obsessed with layering it on top of Soar lip liner by MAC!
Lippy Girl's Vegocentric lipsticks include only natural organic ingredients, which is great news too! The Lippy Girl lipsticks cost £12.50 and are available from http://www.botanicalbrands.com/
In order to achieve the perfect Kim K look, I decided to top it off with my current favourite lip gloss from Smashbox in the shade 'Illume'. I've done a full review on this in my Smashbox Try It Kit Review so you can refer to that for more detail.
The Smashbox lipgloss is just the perfect top coat for this lip look - it provides a gorgeous shimmery shine to the lips that is essential for a Kim Kardashian lip. This lip combination looks absolutely beautiful paired with a smoky eye, as it really tones it down and evens out the make-up.
