What?!? How did this happen!? Why me?? I thought I was being really careful! So it all started when I got this email telling me that my name had popped up on some dodgy site…
Wait you didn’t think I actually meant… Hahaha well if you clicked on this you either care for my safety or you’re a little bit of a perv, either way, I guess I’m flattered. But you my friend have just fallen for some click bait.
I meant these nudes of course! (Also I’m wearing NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome in the main picture)
So I guess you could say I love a nude lip, 11 different ones to be specific.
I’ve sorted them into lipsticks, liquid lipsticks and crayons.
Seventeen Mirror Shine lipstick in Beehive– This is a barely-there nude, which gives a really glossy moisturising finish. It’s a perfect for everyday wear or with a heavy eye look.
Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick in Lovecraft- This is more of a purple-y toned matte nude without it being too drying. It also smells quite sweet. I love pairing it with a pink or gold toned eye. I’ve mentioned it before here.
MAC lipstick in Velvet Teddy- This is the newest addition to my collection after seeing Tanya Burr wear it pretty much everyday during vlogmas. I love the vanilla scent that MAC lipsticks. This nude goes really well with pretty much any eye look and I describe it as a kinda a matte ‘my lips but better shade’.
MAC lipstick in Persistence- Unsurprisingly another matte shade, this is definitely a darker nude-y brown that goes really well with a bronze or gold eye. This is also one of my go-to nudes when I want a darker lip.
Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in 02 Beige Trench- This nude is very grey toned and I can only really wear it with a very dark smokey eye otherwise, being pasty, it tends to leave me looking quite dead or washed out. I haven’t worn it that much but it has a light scent and a nice creamy texture.
Next up liquid lipsticks!
Smashbox Always On Liquid lipstick in Stepping Out- This is for sure the most brown-y nude that I have and I’d only ever wear it with just black winged liner. But it goes on really smoothly and has amazing lasting power.
Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear lipstick in Chihuahua- The colour definitely comes out more brown than the one shown on the packaging and I’m not the biggest fan of the applicator on it but again it goes on really smoothly and is a nice balance between pink and brown.
Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Shabby Chic- I love the packaging of this one, the formula goes on very wet but is easy to apply and the colour is a sort of pink-mauve-purple shade.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Rome- First off I love the vanilla birthday cake scent that the NYX lip creams have! This shade is more of a red toned brown-y nude, a bit like a muted red wine colour. I love pairing this with the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On And On Bronze/Bad To The Bronze.
And last but not least crayons!
Soap&Glory Gloss Stick in Nudist- This is my third repurchase of nudist, I love wearing it on nights out as you don’t have to worry about it smudging and going everywhere but it gives you a subtle gloss and a slight plumping effect and I’m all for having bigger looking lips. It also smells like delicious vanilla birthday cake.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien– This came in a set with a few other lip products from Sephora and is actually the first ever Nars product I’ve tried. I can’t say that I’m that impressed with it, though, I find the colour way too similar to my natural lip colour just with a very slight iridescent purple sheen. However, it is quite moisturising.
So that’s my collection of nudes, maybe not what you expected when you first read the title but if you believed that I doubt you’ve made it this far through the post!
What’s your favourite nude lip?
Lots of love
