Drugstore Pinky-Nude Lip Combo

The Details

In partnership with Walmart. All purchases and opinions are my own!

Milani 03 Nude Liner // Covergirl Honeyed Bloom Lipstick // Milani Moonlight Gloss 

While my makeup bag would tell me that I don’t need to buy another lipstick for at least 2 years, my heart is always on the quest for the perfect pinky-nude lip. I can give a firm, “No” to another eyeshadow palette. I’m fine eating the same lunch for the rest of my life. But a drugstore lipstick that is nude in some lights and pink in others? Oh, don’t tempt me with a good time, my friend!

After a little Walmart run for essentials and popping by the lipsticks, I grabbed one that looked like a fabulous dupe to MAC Creme Cup- but in my *humble* opinion it has way more pigment. WAY more pigment! For about $13 less and a whole lot of lip power more, I am obsessed. I pair it with 2 of my drugstore ride or dies: Milani True Instant Color Liner in “03 Nude” and Milani Keep It Full GLoss in “Moonlight.” I’ve had that gloss in plenty of colors and again, it’s just such fabulous pigment for a better price.

A swatch in natural light!

I love a really light gloss to brighten the center of my pout and highlight, but if you love a more pinky-nude gloss, grab the gloss in “07 Almost Natural.”

I line my entire lip with the 03 liner and fill in, then swipe the lipstick over, and dab the gloss in the center of my pout!

If you’re anything like me, a new year {or season…or MONTH 😉 } calls for a new neutral lip. Try this on your next Walmart run and let me know what you think!
