Everyone needs a nude lip option in the makeup stash and up until recently I didn’t really have many. But as usual once I get a taste of one I want them all! Originally my ideal nude lip was quite a pink one, I never really thought I suited a vert nude lip so I really tended towards the pinky kind. However, since discovering a few true nudes I can now say I am a nudeaholic! How scandalous!
My first favourite has to be the one that started it all; the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Nude Perfection – this is a very true nude and I was quite scared at first but after the whole Kylie Jenner 90’s revival I know I needed to give it a go. I think what I like about this one is it a little darker than the average nude so It doesn’t wash me out plus these lip pencils are divine! They are so creamy and non drying that they are comfortable on the lips all day. The next true nude I have literally just purchased in the last couple of week but boy oh boy do I love it! It’s the Clinique Pop in Nude Pop – This is quite a sheer nude colour which is bloody brilliant for everyday wear, I think it looks best with a lip liner underneath to make it last longer as well as add an extra oomph to it. Another nudie rudie is the Essence Long-lasting Lipstick in Natural Beauty – This is the perfect slap on and go nude, its got a great amount of pigment that you can easily see it on your lips plus it’s a lovely formula that nice and creamy. I’m not quite sure of their long lasting claims but it’s easy enough to reapply without a mirror.
Now it’s time to talk about the pinky nudes that I still use on a daily basis. Let’s start on one that has continuously reappeared on my blog it’s the NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey – I adore this and I tell you what I think it has been blog at least once a month since I started. It just goes with absolutely any look imaginable and I know that when this does eventually run out it will be an immediate repurchase. Finally, the last pinky nude I adore is the Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick in Melted Peony- This is actually quite similar to the NYX lipstick however, it does last a tad longer, and is possible a little bit paler. Again this goes with any look and is super duper easy to apply with the sponge applicator.
So there you go, my favourite nude lipstick. I hope there are a few options for everyone and for those who like me don’t suit every nude out there.
