Top Nude lip picks
Every girl needs a perfect nude lip combo in her life. A nude lip look is so versatile, timeless and beautiful. I’m not so big on mid-tone lippies, I either go with nude lips or absolutely bold statement lips. You’ll never feel overdone or underdone while wearing a perfect nude lip. It can be Sophisticated and Chic day time appropriate but it can also be fearless and bold night out appropriate. In this blog post I’m sharing my Top nude lip picks, and how I like to wear them, matte, demi-matte or glossy.
Current Favorite Nude lipsticks:
I love brown-based nudes. In fact, I love them more than pinky nudes.
First on my lipstick list is MAC matte lipstick “Taupe”. It’s not such a summery color, at least for my skin tone, it’s more of a dark browy nude lipstick, which will make a perfect summer nude for people with darker skin tones, but it’s just makeup. I don’t believe in following “makeup rules”, and wear whatever I want, whenever I want.In my recent Instagram pictures, the dark browny nude shade is always MAC TAUPE.
I think everyone and their mama knows this next favorite lipstick of mine. It’s one of MACs most selling lipstick, it’s always out of stock and it took me a couple of months to get my hands on this one. Obviously it’s so popular for a reason. It makes an absolute perfect summery nude for my skin tone. And MAC matte lipsticks are not drying at all, they never dry out my lips like other matte lipsticks do. It surprises me when people say MAC matte lipsticks are drying, I’m like honey have you tried matte liquid lipsticks ? The suck the moisture out of your lips. I’ll go with MAC matte lipsticks any day of the week and twice on sunday, Dah!
Around Christmas time last year I got a mini lipstick set from Estee Lauder which was limited edition, but the lipstick I’m going to mention is available in their permanent line. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick “Desirable”. This one is more on the pinky side, it’s a pinky nude, which is just breathtakingly gorgeous. It’s perfect for all year round. I’m so surprised how long this thing has lasted me, few months back I was wearing this lipstick non-stop and there’s still so much product left. This lipstick goes with me everywhere. I keep it inside my little makeup bag in the diaper bag, it’s so tiny and perfect for on the go. It literally melts on the lips and feels very moisturizing.
Next up is Maybelline Tantalizing Taupe, I’ve shared it recently in ” Top 10 Maybelline Products “, I like to wear it with a lip liner. In summer I get SUPER tan, nude lip colors like that tend to blend in with rest of my skin, just to add a little bit of definition to the lips I like to use a little darker lip-liner, which I’ll be mentioning in this blog.
My favorite Nude lip liners are all super affordable and work wayyyyy better than high-end lip pencils. They all can be worn on their own for matte lip look, and they’re not drying at all. Your lips won’t look chapped or cracked at all, of course if you have hydrated, well exfoliated lips.
Essence lip-liners are my most favorite lip-liners ever. I wish they had more shades. I absolutely love the formula. They are so creamy, they literally feel like cream stick lipsticks.
First favorite of mine is “Honey Bun” which I wear with literally every nude lip. If you follow my blog, you must have noticed how many times I mention this lip-liner. I know it’s pretty repetitive on my blog, but I really really love it.
Second favorite nude lip liner of mine is Nyx retractable lip-liner “#10 Nude”
“In the nude” from Essence is another favorite of mine, it’s a slightly lighter version of “honey bun”.
I love glossy nude lips just as much as I love matte nude lips, if not more. I’m not big on glosses, firstly I have long hair, the last thing I want is for my hair to stick onto my lip gloss which annoys me, and secondly I CAN NOT stand sticky glosses. Oh God ! I just hate sticky glosses. and believe it or not every time I try out a new lip gloss it ends up being sticky *yuck* and I hate it. I don’t even try out new lip glosses anymore. If you have any favorite lip gloss that isn’t sticky, then let me know and I’ll give it a go.For now these Estee Lauder ones are my favorite, they’re shimmery, but it’s not the crazy glitter shimmer, that it’ll look like you have crazy glitter chunks on your lips. It just gives a very wet looking and shimmery(in a good way) look. These are not sticky whatsoever, and these’re the most comfortable lip glosses I have ever worn.
The first favorite of mine is, “Magnificent Mauve” It adds a very beautiful pinky-mauve hue to any nude lipstick.
Second one is, “Wired Copper”, as I mentioned earlier in this blog, I prefer brown-nudes over pink nudes, and this on top of a brown-nude looks absolutely stunning. It doesn’t make your lips copper or anything. Or I also like to apply it just in the center of the lips. By the way both these lip glosses are not pigmented at all, they just add a shine to the lips, which I like.
This next product I actually use only in the center of the lips, to create a fuller looking lips, and it also creates a very subtle ombre look and gives an interesting twist to the regular nude lip look. I would n’t suggest wearing this color on it’s own, it looks AWFUL, been there, done that. Total Concealer Lips(lol). Rimmel Apocalips “Nude Eclipse” is perfect to apply in the middle of the lips, whether you’re wearing a matte lip or glossy. It just makes your lips look amazing.
