Hands up how many of you completely took this post the wrong way? The naughty way? Well sorry to disappoint (or more likely relieve you) this post is abut a different kind of nude, the good nude, the nude that you throw on in the morning when your in a hurry. The nude that is trustworthy and perfect for the every day world. The nude that you turn to when all else fails.
When it comes to lips I’m a go bold or go home kinda girl and generally find myself opting for a bright pop of colour but sometimes a girl needs a natural look. When a nude lip situation comes calling, these are the products I like best.
Maybelline ColorSens Lipstick in Tantilizing Taupe// (£6.99, Boots) This shimmery, nude lipstick is without a doubt my all time favourite and I regularly find myself reaching for this bad boy. Since they hit the shelves in 2014 I have gone through 2 of these bullets and am well on my way to a third. This barely there lipstick is perfect for a nude or bronzed up look as it’s shimmery consistency adds a little something-something, while remaining wearable, perfect for every day life. This is the dream.
Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Shine in Fuchsia Flash// (£6.19, Boots) When my favourite nude lipstick has somehow managed to disappear in my overly stuffed handbag, a nude-pink lipgloss is my next pick and in my opinion it’s the next best thing. I love this lip shine from Maybelline as it adds the perfect amount of colour and shine and unlike many lip glosses, it manages to avoid being sticky. If your a lipstick-phobe or hate having the dreaded sticky lip, then this is the one for you.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Darling and Honey// (£7.99, Boots) I first bought these crayons when I started dabbling in the lip crayon market and boy did I love them. I find these to be incredibly nourishing and once applied they feel more like tinted lip balms than lipsticks. These two colours are both slightly off nude but are still incredibly subtle and are perfect for a “I need a nude lip” day.
What are your favourite nudes?
