Hey Internet Friends,
I feel like your hearing this more and more within the beauty industry, the search for ‘nude’ colours, Top brands are pushing nude products and the highstreet are obviously following in their elegant footsteps. Im all about using make up to make a statement and frankly couldn’t care less about looking natural or subtle but I must admit even I absolutely LOVE a nude Lip with a statement eye make up. So I want to talk you through my top choices.
I feel like it goes without saying that my nude lip will be different to yours. Finding the right nude for you is important and it depends on your complexion, the make up your putting it with and even your hair colour plays as a factor.
Rimmel Kate Moss 101
“Kate Moss brings colour to a new unique dimension. The gorgeous colour richness and COMFORT of Kate’s lipstick, now in a Velvety MATTE finish. Ruby Powder enriched formula to intensify the colour while keeping a matte finish all day long! Matte is re-invented for the most velvety comfortable colour EVER!” Rimmel Statement
The smell from this lipstick is really gorgeous, its like a melon and vanilla smell. The coverage I would say is medium to full with a semi matte finish, I feel when you compare this to other matte lipsticks it isnt a true matte. It does have good staying power and fades evenly without being over drying.
On Skin Examples
I call this the ‘my lips but better’ colour, because honestly its the perfect match for my complexion with the most beautiful pink undertones. I always have this in my bag and feel its such a wearable colour.
Clinique POP Lip Colour + Primer in NUDE POP
“Luxurious yet weightless formula merges bold, saturated colour with a smoothing primer. Glides on effortlessly to give a modern-velvet finish. Colour stays true and keeps lips comfortably moisturised for 8 hours. Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free”
This is a multi functional product working as both a lip primer and a lip colour as the name would suggest, the primer aspect works to smooth out cracks and lines and is really moisturising and the lip colour is a subtle sheen finish thats really very wearable.
On Skin Examples
This is the colour that you reach for when your in a rush and don’t have time to plan a dramatic look, its also really moisturising so thats a massive benefit and considering its a sheen finish it is fairly long lasting.
Mac Please Me Matte
“Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.”
The lipstick is a matte formulation in a rosy tinted pink colour, I didn’t actually pick this colour for myself but allowed a Mac Make up Artist to do that for me, I find this a great way of choosing Mac products because you really get to find out what an expert thinks will work well for you.
Like most Mac Mattes it does have a slight tug and is drying on the lips but that can be fixed by wearing a balm before hand or doing a quick lip scrub.
On Skin Example
Yes it drying and yes it doesn’t wear evenly, but its a Mac Matte, Ive come to expect it.
This lasts ridiculously long, Im talking 6 plus hours whilst eating and drinking and you really cant complain at those kinds of results. I absolutely love this colour and wear it most days, I feel like it works well with my complexion and with a dark smokey eye.
Just be sure to carry a lip balm for afterwards when your lips need some TLC.
Mac Pink Plaid
This is probably the least like my actual lip colour and is more of a purple pink colour but its nice to accompany with a more subtle eye make up when your still wanting to look fully ‘done’.
This is again a matte formulation so the wearing time is fantastic but it is drying like Please Me.
On Skin Example
As you can see this colour does bleed slightly around the edges and that is obviously not desirable but a lip pencil like Mac’s Applified works well to combat this. I don’t wear this shade as much as please me but when I go for a copper eye or a matte brown shade I find this the perfect accompaniment.
Hope you guys enjoyed looking at my top nude lip choices.
