Don't we all love a nude lip? It is safe to say that it's my favourite lip shade to wear, most days I reach for a nude, they seem to go with any makeup look and are easy to wear. As you can probably see from the swatches, I am a sucker for nudes with brown undertones, although I have snuck in a slightly pinky nude. It certainly wasn't hard for me to pick these lipsticks, they are al firm favourites that I reach for everyday, so with 2 budget and 3 luxury, from the left swatch, what are we waiting for?
Lipstick Queen Glossy Pencil in Catalina: The first one up for the nude lipstick award and a spot well earned too. These pencils are so beautiful, a little different to a usual lip pencil as they are more like a glossy balm but so so beautiful. The pinky brown is a perfect everyday shade, enhancing your lips but keeping them natural. This is my 'lips but better' shade and it's one that I reach for a lot.
MAC Velvet Teddy: Now, we have all gone a little crazy for the whole 90's nude lips but we have all gone completely crazy for Velvet Teddy. Being the most hyped up, spoken about and highly demanded lipstick possibly ever in the beauty world, I couldn't resist and girls, this one lives up to the hype. This a perfect matte, brown-nude which plumps up my lips, making it a must have nude for ones collection... This has got to be my favourite out of the 5. MAC have done good with this one.
Maybelline Colour Drama in Nude Perfection: So here we have a smaller, chubby and cheaper version of the NARS pencils. With a colour not far off in shade from Velvet Teddy, these are ultra intense and matte with a incredibly long lasting finish. For just £4.99 these are full of pigmentation and leave a really solid lip colour.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama: Fellow makeup mavericks, if you're going to get any lip pencil, this is the one to get and if you're after a nude pencil then this is definitely the shade to get. Every time NARS release a lip product, or any product in fact, they smash it, always an amazing colour collection and always beautiful consitency's. The lip pencils are a must have product, with the power of a liner and a lipstick all in pencil form, with a matte finish but still hydrating, I can safely say they are a firm favourite.
Topshop Lipstick in Naturist: Finding this lipstick was a transformation for me, it is the perfect pink nude with a beautiful satin finish. If you're looking for a new nude lipstick or are wanting to try out some nudes but don't want to go straight in with the browns, then this is a great, affordable option.
