Nude lipsticks are always popular. I do have the occasional flirt with colour, but nude is just so wearable isn’t it. Im sure theres not a woman in the country that dosent have at least one nude hue in their make up bag. I blooming love a nude, (no, not like that, filthy) but find getting the shade right can be trial and error. Im a pale, over 40 blonde, with a pink undertone to my skin, so have to get the shade right. If not, you can get the yellow teeth, concealer lips, all-blend-into- one kinda look, and although Im sure thats a strong look for some, not quite what I had in mind.
I thought I would share with you my 5 favourites Iv found so far in my quest for the perfect nude lip. Hope its helpful!
One of my clients recommended this colour to me, and Im glad she did. Its a really creamy, beige nude. This is my absolute favourite when I have a bit of a tan on my face. I use this loads in the summer months.
I purchased this one a couple of months ago, and blooming love it! Its a slightly darker nude, so I tend to wear this one when I want a little stronger colour. The texture is lovely too, despite this colour being in their Matte Revolution range, (matte lippys, as we know, can be more drying) Love, love, love.
This is probably my only pinky nude that I own. You can probably see Im definately more of a browny-nude gal. I was drawn to this one as a nice colour for spring, and blooming love it!
NYX Plush Gel lip colour – Nude Beach
I only purchased this one recently, and this late entry has kicked Mac Patisserie out of the top 5. NYX was a brand recommended to me by the gorgeous lady that writes the Highstreet Beauty blog. Its a fab blog for affordable brands. (You can visit her here.) I really love the texture, it feels balmy and hydrating. A soft nude that Iv been using daily since I bought it 2 weeks ago.
This was my first Mac lipstick that I bought, and re buy every time it runs low, and I still love it. Its the perfect nude for my colouring, and my go to lippy.
So there you have it. My current favourites. I am sure I will buy many more barely there colours. I just cant resist! What are your favourite nudes, any recommendations?
