As good as Nude...


As I've previously stated, I'm a nude addict (no, not that kind of nude!). I just love a lipstick that can go with any colour, any outfit, any day - not to mention one that you don't need a mirror to apply. It makes doing your make-up that much easier when you don't have to think about your eyeshadow clashing with your lip colour, actually, it's probably just me that puts that much thought into a make-up look.

Starting from the left then...

Mac's Patisserie - This is a lustre finish so it's quite sheer to begin with, but it can be built up to the desired intensity. It's a pink with shimmer running through it, so it looks really glossy on the lips. A good call if you tend to wear less eye make-up. 
Retail price: £15.50.

Revlon's Lip Butter in Creme Brulee - I LOVE this! it's one of my favourite nude lipsticks. It gives a really good colour pay off and looks somewhat of a goldey-nude on the lips. It's glossy and feels more like a lip balm than a lipstick as it's so moisturising.
Retail Price: £7.99.

Loreal's Collection Privee in Cheryl's Nude - This one comes from a collection of lipsticks that were designed to be the perfect nude lip colour based on your skintone, there are others in the range such as Eva's (Longoria) Nude and Doutzen's (Kroes) Nude. My colour is based on Cheryl Fernandez-Visini, although in America I think her colour is J-Lo's Nude. I find this to be the perfect combination of pink,beige and brown. It's a beautiful colour with a satin finish. The only niggle I have with it is that it doesn't last particularly long on the lips, and it has quite a potent smell. 
Retail Price: £8.19.

Rimmel's Moisture Renew in Vintage Pink - This is definitely more on the pink side than the nude side when you look at it straight from the bullet, but I don't wear it as a strong colour. I prefer to swipe a little on and then pat it in so it ends up as more of a stain than a full on lip colour. I find that it completes a look and adds a touch of femininity if I've gone for more of a rocky look. 
Retail Price: £6.49.

Mac's Spirit - Now, you're probably sick and tired of me raving about this lipstick but I honestly wear it pretty much every day. It's the colour I gravitate to the most since recently, I've been sporting a 90's inspired look with a darker nude lip. It's a satin finish, though I find it to be quite matte which works well for me but just a word of warning, and is a darkish brown in colour. I find it looks better as a nude on me when I'm tan than when I'm pale. 
Retail Price: £15.50.

Rimmel's Moisture Renew in Nude Delight - The same creamy formula as Vintage Pink, this nude has more of an orange undertone to it's beige colour, so be careful if you're quite pale as it can look a little strange slicked on intensely. I'd recommend patting a little in rather than wearing it as a strong colour. Another good nude for darker skintones. 
Retail Price: £6.49.

If you're looking for a good nude lip, then I hope these recommendations can help you along the way!
