I wonder how many times I’ve typed “matte” over the past two days…

A lot, methinks. 🙂


Here’s a matte neutral combo I’ve been crushing on: peachy mocha brown MAC Matte Lipstick in Pander Me ($16), with creamy beige MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Etcetera ($20).

Yes, I’m in the midst of a pretty serious matte kick right meow…

The Matte Madness series features some of my favorite matte products as of late

    That looks great! I’ve been looking for a peachy lip liner and Etcetera looks perfect! 😀

      Hi Estefania!

      It is super pretty. It applies very warm on me (my skin seems to bring out the red); I like to wear it with warmer peachy nudes. 🙂

      Have fun with your sister tomorrow at the movies. Is she home yet?

  2. Fancie says:

    I barely wear nudes but I still want this lipstick lol. It’s just so pretty!

    Very nice!! But too warm for me.

    I was not paying any attention to MAC Matte Lip collection until I saw Living Legend. It looks like a cross between Ingrid & Liv from NARS at half the price.

    I know it is matte whereas with NARS there is kind of a satin finish. I could always put some lip gloss over it . .

    I think I’ve talked myself into this one!!

    Pretty lip combo!

    I love the lipstick color and pencil. I’m looking for a color that sort of looks like that so I need to go check it out. Sometimes colors like that don’t look to great on me.

    • Karen says:

      Nudes can be tricky. I find that unless they’re just right they can make me look washed out.

      Happy early t-day to you and Tulip! Will she be getting a special Thanksgiving treat? We have extra gravy for Tabs. 🙂

      • tulipthecat says:

        Yeah, I’m always trying nudes but they just wash me out. That looks great on you so it might work for me too….

        Happy turkey day to you and Tabs! I bought Tulip and Jazmine (my boyfriend’s cat) a can of chunky turkey cat food for Thanksgiving.
        I’m sure my nieces and nephew will be chasing them all over the house on Thanksgiving.

        Are you planning on going shopping on Thursday or Friday?

        • Karen says:

          You might have to do warmer and/or darker nudes then. I find that cool-toned and light beige nudes look a HOT mess on me. LOL.

          It sounds like Tulip and Jazmine will be feasting! What will you guys be having? We’ve got a few sides (green beans, sweet potato mash, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, cranberry sauce, gravy and bread) and crab. Yes, we’re eating Thanksgiving crab!

          As for shopping, I might stop by the Old Navy in Vintage Oaks if we happen to hit up a movie. I need pants!

          How about you?

          • tulipthecat says:

            We are having a fried turkey, honey baked ham, mash potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, bread, and mini pecan pies. Crab sounds yummy!!! Last year when I was in Bodega Bay I saw the fishermen bringing in the crab traps filled with yummy crab. My best friend always has crab for Thanksgiving too.

            I LOVE Old Navy but I go out of control there. I need to make my list of gifts to buy (I have tons of kids stuff to buy for all of my godchildren). I have to try and stay focused and not shop for myself.

          • Karen says:

            Your feast sounds AMAZING! Are you making that all?! From scratch? Go, you.

            I’ve never had crab for Thanksgiving so I’m looking forward to it. It’s my favorite thing in the whole, wide world. I sometimes think about going full-on vegetarian (I’m pescatarian right now) but I don’t think I could because of crab. I LOVE IT!!!! I’m going to try dipping it in gravy. Who knows? It could work.

            Well maybe you can get some of those gifts for the kids at Old Navy tomorrow? The entire store is supposed to be 50% off!

    What a beautiful combination! I have been into lip liners recently!

    • Karen says:

      They make everything SO much easier. Especially matte lipstick. Especially matte red lips! 😀 I usually have a few of them in my purse, but the funny thing is they are all slight variations on the same sort of peachy/pink nude shade.

  7. Sunny says:

    Gorgeous MLBB combination, Karen! I am slowly warming up to mattes. I’ve been crushing hard on both Cruella and Iberico in the NARS Digital World set!

  9. Erin says:

    Those look like an almost exact match! I like the combo, it’s going to be a great look for spring too.

  12. That looks lovely, I have to check it out. MAC lipsticks are my favorite, but I have never tried their mattes.

  13. More mattes, moaaaaaar! What a gorgeous shade this is! I would totally wear this.

  14. Great combo, Karen! I’ve been loving matte lipsticks lately, too. Being that I have extremely dry lips, though, I have to really exfoliate and use a lip balm/treatment before applying one. 😉

  15. Stefi says:

    Oh, this looks so beautiful on you. Pander Me looks great on some type of skin colors but it does noooot look good on me although I really like the color 🙁 The lip liner is one of my faves if I wear a beige/brown lip but it does look really differently on me, I like it way more on you! But I’ll keep this combo in mind for my next makeup appointment, this really looks great on darker skin tones <3
    Love, Stefi

  16. Kristina says:

    So pretty! How does this compare to Mac’s Boldly Bare?

  17. Rozae says:

    I love the name & loves nudes but need to try b4 getting it!

  18. Love love love these shades!! Shared via Twitter 🙂 my next splurge will be a matte lip colour for sure!

    I bought this color and styled in sepia. Its funny because I think both just look ok on my skin tone. Pander me really looks orange on me but I pair it with a brown lipliner.

    Hiiiii Pretty :*
    It’s look gorgouse on you!
    Is this color suit the fair skin color?
