Favourite Nude Lipsticks

Monday, 13 July 2015

Finding the perfect nude lipstick can be tricky because what looks good on someone may look too pale or too dark for you. You probably have to try out a lot of them before you know what looks good on you and what you're comfortable with. Once you're past that, you won't have trouble deciding what works for you just by swatching testers on your hand (I NEVER use testers on my face, they are so unsanitary), or by researching for swatches online. Now everyone has their own preferences... Like how Kylie Jenner prefers darker, 90s nude and how I prefer nudes that are never lighter than my skintone, but still light enough to brighten me up, and (apparently) seeing from my favourites line-up, I prefer nude lipsticks that are not matte. Matte nude lipsticks can be stark and heavy looking, especially those in a liquid lipstick formula, plus they always seem to emphasize the lines of my lips. My picks are more low maintenance and 'easy' to wear. Here are my favourite nude lipsticks...

Favourite nude lipsticks: Clinique Pop Lip Nude Pop 01, Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Penelope Pink, MAC Jubilee, Soap and Glory Motherpucker Gloss Stick in Nudist

 Clinique Pop Lip Nude Pop 01

This one needs no introduction. I wrote about the Clinique Pop Lip lipsticks not long ago here and it got quite a lot of attention (thank you!). It is a very creamy light pinky nude that has sparkles in it. The only thing I don't like about this is I can't wear it on days when my lips are dry.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick Penelope Pink

I haven't talked about this yet, but I love this so so so much. The formula makes your lips look plumped, luscious and expensive without making them look heavy. When you put it on it actually feels luxurious. It is creamy but as not creamy as the Clinique or MAC one. This lipstick can be too light for days when I wear very minimal, bare makeup, but with darker eye look or a more intense blush this is divine!

MAC Jubilee

I have also written a separate post about this here. I treasure this lipstick so much I think I'm going to have to stock up! It is the darkest (although still light) and the most brown out of the four. It is so flattering.

Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Stick in Nudist

This is one of those 'easy' shades that goes with every makeup look. It's one of those reliable makeup products, you know? It is a balmy, sheer peachy nude gloss that feels like a tinted balm but more glossy.

After I swatched everything, I went to dinner at a fancy hotel with my family and in the end I chose to wear my Soap and Glory gloss stick....

What do you think? What are your favourite nude lipsticks?

Much love, x
