Your New Favourite Shade: Slate

My collection of lip products is rather extensive to say the least, but more recently I’ve been buying a totally new shade to what I used to. Right now I’m addicted to slate coloured lippies, anything grey/stone/purple. Here are my top 5 slate shades that I have right now:


  1. NYX Lip Lingerie – Honeymoon

This was the first NYX product I ever tried and I’m in love with the creaminess of this product. This one is the lightest of the products, it’s a light stone shade and it’s a more warm tone than the rest. It fits nicely in the middle of ‘nudes’ and ‘darks’ so is a great every-day, goes-with-anything wearable lip colour.


  1. Mac Lipstick – Stone

I brought this back in November at the airport en route to Paris and it’s been one of my most worn lipsticks since. It’s super matte and applies like a dream. Where liquid lip products can get a little drying when worn all day, lipsticks don’t have this problem. I will always be in love with Mac lipsticks.


  1. Mac Liquid Lip Colour – Simply Smoked

I’m usually pretty fussy when it comes to picking a lip shade. I see a good lip product as an investment. When my Aunty said she was going to pick me up a present from duty-free on Saturday, I was a little nervous; however I’m so happy with the shade she chose! It’s a more deep-cement grey, and is the darkest of the ones in this blog post. I’ve not tried Mac’s liquid lip colours before now, but so far I’m loving it. I’m wearing it right now actually.


  1. NYX Lip Lingerie – Embellishment

I loved ‘Honeymoon’ so much I needed another, so after swatching all the purpley shades on my arm it was a toss-up between ‘French Maid’ and ‘Embellishment’, I went for the deeper of the two with Embellishment, however I may still consider picking up French Maid because it’s lovely! The whole range of Lip Lingerie is beautiful and I wish I could just get them all.


  1. Mac Lip Liner – Stone

Every good lippy needs to be twinned with an equally good lip liner. When I purchased my Mac lipstick in Stone I also brought the matching lip liner, also called Stone. It matches really nicely with Stone, Honeymoon and Simply Smoked; it just doesn’t suit Embellishment unfortunately. This is great to line your lips or just to wear on its own if you fill in your lips.


I’m always looking out for more shades like these, so if you have any recommendations, let me know!
