Matte Pink Lips

I have been experimenting with lip colour recently and I am loving pink matte shades. 
I usually avoid matte lipsticks, because they are quite drying, but I want to use my full makeup collection, without neglecting 99% of it :) so I am shopping the stash. I used drugstore lip products for this look- an Accessorize lipstick in shade Besotted and a Look Beauty Lip liner in shade Rock Candy. The lipstick wasn't my cup of tea when I first got it. I only used it after applying loads of lip balm onto my lips for a very sheer coverage, but... I adore it now!  This made me realize that I should swatch all my lipsticks and see if I changed my mind about some of them :)

On my eyes I am wearing Wet'nWild Walking On Eggshells trio, Bourjois Liner Pinceau and Eldora falsies. Oh, and  a nude UNE Skin Glow Pencil in the waterline.  On my face I used my trusty Vichy Dermablend foundation and powder (review coming soon), Tarte Amazonian Clay Blusher in shade Dollface and MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle (review coming soon as well).
