My Favourite Nudes | The Lipstick Edit

I feel like it has been FOREVER since I wrote a makeup post on my blog as I lost all inspiration even though I still absolutely love makeup. However, today I am back with something I really really love and that is nudes! ( Nude lipsticks btw. don't get thinking wrongly of me now!) I am particularly loving the browny-pinks and my liquid lipstick collection is growing and growing so I thought I would share a few of my faves. They are all the same kind of tone except one maybe two as I have been loving the shade.

MAC Mehr - By far my absolute favourite! As you can tell it has been worn a lot! I have had it for a round a year and is my most worn lipstick as it just lasts forever on the lips with only one top up needed if its a particularly long day whilst the matte isn't at all drying as it sits comfortably on the lips. At £16.50 its also not the most priciest of lipsticks and I don't think MAC lipsticks can be faulted. The lipstick is mainly a pink nude but does have a slight brown undertone which makes it more of a nude and a gorgeous one at that!

MAC Brave - Keeping with the MAC theme but a relatively new purchase as I only got it back in June, its definitely another favourite and has earned a solid place in my makeup bag. At a first glance it looks exactly like Mehr but as a satin formula it gives a lovely sheen to the lips but without losing any pigmentation. Its also slightly more pink on the lips than Mehr making it a bit more girly opposed to Mehr which is heading more towards the 90's grunge nude lip colours.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Pink Blink - On the more affordable side of around the £5 mark this is another of my favourites and also proves that you don't always have to spend a lot to get a lot. Rimmel has always been my favourite drugstore brand and this doesn't fall short of my expectations the pigmentation is great and lasts on the lips unless eating where I don't expect many lipsticks to stay on perfectly anyway. I would also say the matte formula is comfortable and not sticky or drying.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Nairobi Camellia - Is another of my favourites as it is my go to when I am after a nude even darker than Mehr. This is the perfect autumnal nude for my skin tone as it is a brown nude with a berry undertone. It is also very affordable again at £6 and the pigmentation and longevity cannot be faulted. However I do find this works even better with a lip liner such as Rimmel East End Snob (Another favourite) as it can then last the full day.

Urban Decay Vice Liquid Lipstick Naked - I bought this specifically for prom and expected it to be more expensive than £15.50 as I am aware high end lipsticks can be sky high prices but the colour is my perfect nude and as the name describes is naked on me making it appear a my lips but better colour. This lasts the best out of all of the liquid lipsticks and the pigmentation is great but it takes a while to dry if applied wrong. However, after a couple of wears I got used to the formula and once on is very nice to wear.

Whats your favourite nude lipstick?

  4. I always love nude shades. they are love. I love to use them on regular basis. Especially, lipsticks rather then liquid one. Cause they are really comfortable to use and swipe off!
