Kylie Jenner Lip Trend: Three takes on Mauve Lips

Fall is one of my favorite seasons for beauty! The colder weather and changing leaves inspire me to switch gears and try new out looks. One change I've made lately is switching out brighter lips for more rich and neutral hues.

Pinterest has been going crazy lately over Kylie Jenner's makeup. She has been rocking beautiful neutral makeup with a rich mauve lip. Here are three ways to recreate her look:

MAC Lipstick in Faux

This is one of the lipstick colors Kylie is rumored to wear for this look. It is a beautiful mauve with a satin finish. It feels velvety when you run it across your lips. MAC describes this color as "muted mauve-pink". It is long-wearing and leaves a slight stain behind.

Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Inspired

This is more of a rosy mauve. I'd say that this is a satin finish as well. It feels buttery smooth when applied. I think this lipstick line may be being discontinued by Tarte as I can only find a few colors that are on sale on their website and Sephora. Side note, I freaking hate the packaging of these. Its huge and bulky and it only has a standard size lipstick inside that giant tube. Packaging aside, the formula of this lipstick is nice and it is long-wearing (claims to be 12-hours) so hopefully Tarte is just revamping the packing and not discontinuing this line.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Warm Me Up

This color is very comparable to the first two lipsticks but the finish is shiner and slightly glossy. This is a nice option if you aren't into the completely matte look but dig the color. It is also a nice affordable option from the drugstore.

MAC Lip Pencil in Dervish

An important part of this look is the use of a lip liner. It is said that Kylie uses MAC Whirl lip pencil for her matte mauve look. I actually own Whirl but to me it leans more brown and I thought Dervish was more appropriate. MAC describes the color as "pinky-mauve". This lip pencil was actually one of the first products I ever bought from MAC. It is the most universal pink color that can work with just about any nude or pink lipstick. Kylie uses lip liner in her look to overdraw her lips slightly above her lip line to make them appear fuller. I don't particularly like that look on me but I still use a liner to outline my natural lip line and fill them in at the corners to achieve crisp edges and also extend the wear of my lipstick.

All trends aside I really love the mauve lips look. Its daytime appropriate and is great for school, work and transitioning into the colder months.
