Stella May I know you favorite lip to wear these days?

Of course you may. This combination was kind of unexpected. Both of the products don't really work for me no matter what I tried, but when I combined them I finally got them to work! Today's At First Blush is all about the lip I have been wearing lately. 
First is this NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick in Tea & Cookies. This was my first foray into the matte lipstick trend and I just could not make it work. It's a light, moussy texture but every time I tried to apply it, it would be super patchy and crumbly. And when I try to apply more to fill the patch it would just lift product off elsewhere. To make it not crumble I needed to remove most of the product by scrapping it along the tube and...
to combat that patchiness problem I line my lips with the Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in Canvas. This was my least favorite liner I have since this one is so dry, but I kept it since I like the color and there is a lip brush on the other end. 
& it's a nice lip brush! But because the liner has that drier texture, it works well combined with the matte lipstick. 
And the colors are pretty close! The lipstick is on the left and liner is on the right. So far this combination does come off a little whenever I eat or drink, but it does it kind of nicely. It also wear for 5 hours. (I don't seem to need to ever wear it for longer.) Oh and it passes the kiss test! 
And lastly my night lip product has been the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm. I know miel means honey, but it's more lemony than honey to me. It's a thick balm that is still there in the morning. (That's the factor that I judge it by.)
