Meant to Last

 I've been looking for a type of lipstick that is long lasting to wear. I mean, when I put it on, it will stay on my lips for more than 8 hours and that I don't need to re-apply.  I've spotted few shades that I love at Clinique and M.A.C.

Mac Lip Pencil and Lipstick

Mac Plumful Lipstick

Mac Soar Lip Pencil

I ended up with M.A.C Plumful Lustre Lipstick and M.A.C Soar Lip Pencil. Since I want a long-lasting lipstick, I decided to get both. I follow few steps in applying my lipstick. 
  1. In order to remove the dry skin cells on my lips, I clean my lips with wet wipes.
  2. I apply lip balm of my choice or petroleum jelly. Remove any excess using a tissue.
  3. I will then apply the lip liner all around my lip and blend it using my finger tip. 
  4. For a precise application, I use a pointed and thin brush in applying lipstick. This also prevents clumps. 
  5. Blot off the excess lipstick using a tissue then put over a single ply of tissue over the lips and apply a thin coat of loose or pressed powder. This will make your lipstick stay longer on your lips.
  6. Finally put a thin layer of lipstick for a glossy finish. 
These two products of M.A.C are amazing. The colors that I got match my complexion. They are so easy to apply too. I can actually use the lip pencil to all shades of lipstick that I have. 

One thing that we should remember in buying cosmetics is that fake products exist. Buy your cosmetics in shops you trusted and in authorized sellers only. You certainly do not want to spend your money on something that's not going to give you the satisfaction you're looking for. 

I bought mine in one of M.A.C seller in Dublin called BT2 (Brown Thomas 2). The lipstick is €18.00 and the the lip pencil is €15.50. I'm happy with that. Besides, I'm going to use it for a year.
