It’s not a secret that I have a #womencrusheveryday on Kylie Jenner. I’ve already made a couple of posts about her (for example, check out this make-up, hair & outfit video tutorial that I made), but I still can’t get over her awesome big ass lips, haha. I think they look so good on her and I don’t care if they’re real or fake (pleaz peeps, get a life and start discussing more important subjects that happen instead of the fakeness of her lips, thankyou). In today’s review I’m going to show you my newest Kylie Jenner lip combo and that’s the MAC lipliner in Whirl paired with the MAC lipstick in Honeylove. I have to say, this is, again, a very close match to the real deal and I’m totally loving it. Maybe it’s even my favourite combination I’ve discovered so far, but shht, don’t tell ;). So yeah, if you wanna see why this lip combination is so amazing, keep reading!
So let’s start with the packaging. I think you all know now how the packaging of MAC lipproducts looks like, but I like to mention it anyways. I think they have a very professional and classy vibe and I love displaying my MAC products on my vanity. The lip pencil & lipstick also have a very nice, vanilla smell to them. It’s not too overpowering (I hate it when lip products smell too strong), it’s just a very nice and feminine smell.
It’s swatch time! On the left you can see the MAC lipstick Honeylove and on the right you can see a swatch of the MAC lipliner Whirl. Honeylove has a satin finish, which means that it’s not matte, but also not shiny/shimmery. It has a very natural finish on the lips and leaves your lips feeling moisturized. As you can see, Whirl has a total matte finish. They are both very pigmented colours, this was only one swipe! I’m definitely liking what I see :).
I always like to show my bare lips before I show you my lip products on. I have pink/red lips and my lipline isn’t that even (it looks not that bad in real life though, I just have to overdraw a bit of my lip to make them look even, haha).
MAC LIP PENCIL IN WHIRL
Let’s start of with the lip pencil Whirl. What can I say. I. Freaking. Love. It (be prepared to read a lot of ‘loves’ and ‘obsessed’ in this blogpost, haha). Despite the fact lip liners can be a bit drying on my lips (I have dry lips in general), this one isn’t too bad. The plus side to a more ‘drying’ lip product is the staying power tho. This baby will sit on your lips looking pretty even after a big dinner. Not joking. And because the colour is so natural, it looks good even if it’s a bit faded away. I also think Whirl is a very good colour to (learn to) overdraw your lips with. So yeah, I’m definitely loving it and it’s a great addition to my other Kylie lip liner Soar (Soar is a bit more pink than Whirl by the way).
Full face time! Although I like wearing lipsticks over my lipliners, it’s totally fine to wear them on their own too! I usually do this when I’m in a hurry or if I really want to go for that ultimate matte lip look. It’s also more kissing proof, because it doesn’t smudges like lipstick does, if you know what I mean ;).
MAC LIPSTICK IN HONEYLOVE
Now onto Honeylove! Honeylove adds a bit more softness to my lips. It’s a bit more toned down now and the finish is also more satin-y instead of matte. I love it! I do think it’s hard to describe this colour. A brown plumy pink? Yeah, makes sense, I know. This lipstick doesn’t make my lips look dry, so it’s perfect to wear if you have a chapped-lips-kind-of-day. It’s also very soft to apply (but not too soft that it will melt).
And this is the full face with the lip combo! I think it looks sooo pretty on my lips. It’s a close call to the real Kylie Jenner lip colour if you ask me. I just love these plum/pink/brown/nudish lip colours lately. They’re like the more sophisticated and edgy version of the nude lip. Because this colour is pretty natural, it fades very nicely during the day. It won’t last a whole meal, but hey, which lipstick does right? It also doesn’t dry out your lips, because of the satin finish. I’m definitely recommending Honeylove if you want a bit more of a brownish nude, that isn’t too brown. Okay, hope you understand me haha. I think Whirl & Honeylove are two amazing and unique colours and as always, MAC didn’t disappoint me this time as well. Definitely musthaves! Oh and yes, you recognized this picture from my sidebar, haha.
Well well well, I think I hit the jackpot. If this isn’t a perfect dupe, I don’t know what is!
So that’s it for today’s review! I hope I don’t bore you with my Kylie Jenner obsession yet, because I promise you, I’m planning to make another blogpost about her in the future as well. Anyways, I’m totally obsessed with this lipcombo and I can’t wait to try the MAC lipliner Soar with Honeylove and Whirl with the MAC lipstick Faux. I’ll keep you posted! I hope you have a wonderful day and I will talk to you soon.

I loved your post, but I have one correction: YOU are much better and a million times more beautiful than Kylie Jenner. She should be obsessed with you and not viceversa.
Aw this is such a sweet comment, thank you! xo
Hi! I’m thinking about buying a mac lip liner but i can’t decide which color I should go for. I’ve been thinking of maybe Spice or Whirl but I really can’t choose on of them. I have blonde hair and blue/grey/green eyes. Can you help me?
I love them both, but Spice is my fave! xo
I’m like reaal confused right now. MAC Honeylove IS Matte finish, not Satin. Look it up on their website it’s matte. And literally 2 days ago I bought it at Mac counter in airport and packaging says it’s matte everywhere.
officially it’s a matte finish but it looks like a satin on the lips.
