Those of you who’ve been following my blog since the early days might remember my love for two MAC products: MAC spice lipliner & MAC honeylove lipstick. For the longest time this has been my daily lip combo and I used to get many questions upon what I was wearing.

“When I went cruelty free, I had to say goodbye to my once so beloved MAC lip combo.”

But as you also might remember about two years ago I went cruelty free and therefore I had to say goodbye to all of my once so beloved MAC products. Never since had did I manage to find a good equivalent for my MAC lip combo. I once simply gave it up and switched to liquid lipsticks. Although I now am a huge liquid lipstick lover (read about my favorites here and here), I’d still like to switch things up with an ‘old school’ lipliner and lipstick combo. Well, I wouldn’t be writing this article if I didn’t find it: after two freaking years the search is finally over!I found the perfect MAC spice lipliner equivalent at a store in my hometown called MECO Cosmetics. The lipliner is called ‘Au Natural’ and it immediately reminded me of MAC spice. The big difference though is that MECO cosmetics is 100% cruelty free! Next to that their products are hypoallergenic and don’t contain any parabens and perfume. Unfortunately it’s not that easy to get your hands on it if you don’t live in Leeuwarden though. They do have a webshop, but for some kind of reason I couldn’t find this exact shade. They’ll probably be able to get it for you if you send them an email though.

But as I said I found the perfect lip COMBO, which means that I also found a nice lipstick to go with the lip pencil. I actually already found the lipstick quite a while ago, but since I never ever wear lipsticks without lipliner I never actually wore it. I’m talking about Etos Kylie’s Fave. It’s a perfect match with the Meco Cosmetics Au Natural lip pencil. Etos is a Dutch drugstore and I really love their own label!

“Meco Au Natural lipliner and Etos Kylie’s Fave is the perfect lip combo for me!”

So that’s it: my new favorite lip combo! What’s your favorite lip product?
