Perfect Pair: MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick and Soar Lip Liner

That browny nude lip is what it's about at the moment. Thanks to the one and only Kylie Jenner of course, after picking up Velvet Teddy and loving it I decided to branch out to find the perfect pair to match it. There have been so many claims of different lip liners which are the ones and while both Soar and Whirl are next to impossible to come by I managed to snap up the last Soar Lip Liner and feel like its the one for me.

As much as I think that Kylie's lips look incredible, and now we all know that she had lip fillers so this lipstick isn't entirely accountable for all of that amazingness this lipstick does seem to do incredible things for your lips.
Using Soar lip liner originally to simple outline my lips you can create a very slight ombre lip effect as it is slightly darker, but to create a more long lasting effect I lined and completely filled in my lips and then went over the top with Velvet Teddy.
Currently my ultimate every day lipstick Velvet Teddy looks amazing on its own, but paired with Soar I think it really enhances the colour leaning it slightly more towards a pink undertone while still remaining firmly in the brown toned nude category. Using a lip liner enhances the longevity of the lipstick ensuring it stays in place all day.
What is your ultimate nude lipstick? What's your favourite lip liner and lipstick combo?
