Lips Lips Lips: NYC Ombré Lip Tutorial

Hello Lovelies, today I have some rather yummy lip colour for you in the form of these new NYC Expert Last shades. Lots of big bold power shades and only £1.49 each. Nice, I'll have ten. I've swatched 6 of the fourteen for you and I've shown you how to create your own ombré lip.

Lots of colours from deep dark purples to peaches and coffees there's even some very fabulous dark browns a la 1990s.

Here's some swatches of the reds and pinks.

I loved Red Rapture and Snow Cone very easy to wear and I used it along with Purple Crush to create an Ombré lip for you. I think the ombré gives you a natural highlight and shading effect so it's well worth a go.

Here's my take on the ombré lip, it was really easy. 
1. Take Snow Cone apply it to the inside of the lips.
2. Put Purple Crush just outside Snow Cone but not to the edges of the lips.
3. Use Red Rapture to fill in the edges and line your lips.
4. To finish press lips together to soften the edges and voila!

Look at me! I'm wearing lipstick! Here I am wearing the ombré lip, looking surly as usual!

So girls what colours are you excited about trying? Do you like a dark brown, a peach, even a dark purple?

Much Love

I like the packaging on these better than their old lipsticks! And what an interesting idea, I'll have to try it out, even though it seems tricky to get the shades in the right place!
