Everyone needs a nude lipstick right? Like clean knickers, the right nude lipstick just feels good on.
I personally am a fan on beige toned nudes, although I have so many that I am on a total beige-nude-no-no-no buy for quite a while.
Here are 5 I do like, for your consideration:
Laura Mercier Discretion. I got this because they say that Angelina Jolie uses this nude. But then again I hear that a lot – on make up counters, in hairdressers, in Asda…”Don’t you know Angelina uses this?”. Hmmmm.
Although this is a real staple nude, I don’t like the funny smell it has and ever so slightly dry texture.
Nars Honolulu Honey – this is quite yellowy based. Beware cool toned ladies!
This is a nice colour, quite light and yellow though and not always that easy to wear. Nars lipsticks (the older ones) I find a tad drying on my lips.
Another warm nude, this has the creamiest texture of the lipsticks mentioned so far and gives quite a full coverage finish. I like!
Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Charming:
This is quite sheer and glossy – a natural look with some shine.
MAQUillage lipstick in BE281:
The sheerest of the lost but very comfortable to wear, hydrating and gives a plumped look effect.
They look more similar on the lips than then do on the hand! My favourite colour is Nars Honolulu Honey, favourite texture is the MAC underplay but the easiest to wear is MAQUillage. If only I invented a magic lipstick squisher than pushes all your favourite lipsticks together to make an amazing one!
What are your favourite nude lipsticks?
