The Nude Lip Edit

by - Saturday, August 24, 2019

Despite me loving the occasional red lip, I often reach for a nude lip because it's so much easier to maintain, and it's also less of a faff as nobody will notice if a nude lipstick has slid off your lips. I have several favorites on hand, split up into categories...

The classic lipsticks
Aah, the classic bullet-style lipstick, aka my favorite as they're simply just a swipe-and-go matter.

The budget option:
Two of my favorite budget nude lipsticks come from Milani's Color Statement Lipstick line with those two being Naturally Chic, which used to be my most used pink nude, and Dolce Caramello, a slightly more brown toned pink nude.

The luxe options: 
If I seriously need a pick-me-up or if I'm just feeling a bit fancy, I'll use either my YSL Rouge Voluptes or my Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks. For the Rouge Voluptes, I have two perfect nude shades: Nude Lavalliere, which is a perfect pinky nude, and Pink Blouson, which is more pink, but still another perfect nude pink. For the CT lipsticks, I have Pillow Talk, which is the shade that everyone and their mother has as it's the ultimate pink nude, and Very Victoria, which is a stony rose.

The liquid lipsticks/lipglosses/crayon

The crayon:
I know it's technically more of a lipstick shaped like a pencil, but the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in the shade Glace is my favorite lip crayon. It's essentially a MLBB color for me as it's the perfect neutral pink-a perfect balance of pink and mauve.

The liquid lipstick:
When I want a nude liquid lipstick, I look for something that's not too terribly drying, and my best choices for this category were the Jouer Lip Creams and the Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint. The Jouer Lip Cream shades I chose were Tawny Rose, a rosy pink, and Lychee, which is slightly brighter but still is a pretty pink nude. For the Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint, I chose Birthday Suit, which is only available at Sephora and it's a MLBB mauvey pink.

The budget option: 
For your budget liquid lipstick, I have everyone's new favorite budget brand: Colourpop. My favorite nude from Colourpop is Dopey, which comes from their Ultra Satin Lips Range and is a slightly purple-toned mauve.

The luxe lipgloss: 
I love a good lipgloss, and the slightly pricier nude lipgloss I have is the BareMinerals Buttercream Gloss in the shade Snarky, which is a lovely nude rose. Another nude lipgloss favorite from Bareminerals i Fancy, which shows like a true pink in the tube but applies as a subtle, bright nude pink.

The budget lipgloss:
The budget lipgloss I love the most is sadly discontinued, and it's the Essence XXXL Lipgloss in the shade Nude Kiss, a pretty pinky nude with a lot of sparkle.
