Lip Combo I Love | Taupe Mauve

Lip Combo I Love | Taupe Mauve

Sometimes I get a makeup look stuck in my head that I need to execute as soon as I get home. That’s how this look was. I was going for a simple complexion, smokey purplish warm eye, and ABH Veronica lipstick. Here are the products I used to achieve this makeup look:


Nivea aftershave primer

Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation

MAC Strobe Cream

Nyx Lavender Concealer

Ben Nye Pink powder under eyes

Hourglass Dim Light to set face

It Cosmetics Face Disk to contour

Becca Wild Honey Blush

NARS Hot Sand highlight – so amazing!!


Tartelette in Bloom Palette-  Rebel & Leader in the crease

Dose of Colors Hidden Treasure palette- Gemstone lid, Pearl inner corner

NYC liquid liner

L’Oréal Miss Manga Rock mascara

Christina 605 lashes


Anastasia Beverly Hills Auburn pencil

MAC Beurre liner

ABH liquid lipstick in Veronica

This lip combination was inspired by one of my friends- she was wearing Kylie Cosmetics Love Bite lip kit and it looked amazing! I went on a hunt to find a good dupe of Love Bite because I’m not in love with the Kylie formula. I haven’t swatched them side by side, but I think Anastasia Beverly Hills Veronica is a pretty close shade.  If you have both please let me know if they’re similar!  I almost picked up MAC Verve lipstick as another option, but I wear my dark lipsticks more often when they are matte, and Verve is a shiny satin. Anastasia lipsticks are great at not transferring.  Love Bite is a pretty unique color surprisingly and I had a hard time finding the right shade.  Kudos to Kylie Cosmetics for creating a great color.


ABH Veronica is described as a taupe mauve on That is the perfect description of this shade. It came off a little bit purple berry toned to me too.  MAC Beurre matched it perfectly and I love the formula of MAC’s liners.  Unfortunately, I guess MAC discontinued this lip liner which is a major bummer because it is a great color. A good dupe is Maybelline’s plum liner.


As soon as I finished doing this makeup I went out for a brisk walk and didn’t have time to wash my face first. It held up perfectly! I will definitely be doing this look again for a night out.
