Hello my beautiful people, Thank you so much for the warm response for my previous post!
Today I wish to discuss some lip colour stories with you. People who know me personally know very well that I am a lipstick freak! In fact, I have a vast lipstick collection. In this series I would like to share some of my favourite nude lipsticks (or nudes) – the ones l I love the most, from amongst my collection!
To start with my skin tone shade is MAC NC 42. When it comes to nudes, the shades you choose may vary according to the tone of your skin. This has happened to me – in fact, some shades look quite washed out on my face. So, be careful while you choose your nudes! I would suggest you go try and buy when it comes to nudes – so that you don’t end up making the same mistake, I made! 😊😊
Enough talk – lets move on to the list of our babies! ❤️ I will share hand swatches to show the lipsticks I have.
Here are some nude shades in total from my favourite brands❤️
This glide-on, smooth lipstick gives you an awesome finish, and lasts pretty-good 🙂 It is bit expensive! C’mon its MAC! 😛
MAC Matte Lipstick – Taupe
2. ColourPop Ultra Satin and Ultra Blotted Lip shades.
Everyone close to me knows how crazy I am about ColourPop and their products 🙂 I love their lip colours, their eye- shadows, and their concealers. They do a great job in making these products! (Do let me know if you need a review on their concealers).
The Ultra satin lipstick gives you a satin matte finish, it lasts long on lips but it transfers (i.e. it gets lost when your lips get in contact with other objects). That being said, it is very comfortable on the lips. 🙂
The Ultra blotted lip range gives you that blotted lip look, which is very light on lips, and dries to matte. It is also transfer proof! Which means that, you don’t have to worry about lipstick getting stained on your glass when you drink from it! <3
The shade strip actually looked washed out on my lips 🙁 But you cant waste a lippe like that, can you? 😉 So, what I do is to mix shades to get a different shade. I mix it with another dark shade to achieve a new shade 🙂
Pro-tip: Always play with shades to get new ones thats what artist do 😉
The ColourPop Lip Shades
3. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – creme cup
This is an awesome, budget-friendly lip colour, which is highly pigmented and gives a smooth finish, even though it claims matte – it is more on the creamy side. 🙂
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Creme Cup
I love three shades from their variety of lip range. The three are :
- Nykaa So Matte Lipstick Collection – Naughty Nude
Nykaa Pout Perfect Lip & Cheek Velvet Matte Crayon Lipstick – Spice Spice Baby.
Their advantage is that they are easily available and affordable 🙂 They are also more on the creamy matte side.
Nykaa Cosmetics ( Unfortunately I couldnt find my taupe thrill lipstick) 🙁
They come in small pans. They are highly pigmented and long lasting. However, you need a magnetic pallette to keep them, since they come in single pans. Alternatively, you may actually preserve the plastic cover it comes with – that would be a nifty way to store them. I almost forgot – you would need a brush to apply them . to your lips. 🙂
PAC Lip color PAN – 13
Thats all for my favourite nudes.There are are lot other shades available in the market with different finishes.
I really hope you liked them! 🙂 In fact, there are several other shades, apart from nudes, which I love to wear everyday. I will share about them in my next post! 🙂 I have added links to these products, so that you can try them directly.
I’m reminding you once again, when it comes to nude lipsticks, always try them out with your skin tone, to avoid washout looks!
Here’s a quick tip before saying bye – if you ever get light shade by accident, use a dark shade lip-liner under your lip colour, to blend it. This will help you in achieving a better finish, and save the lovely lippie from being wasted! 🙂
See you next time! 🙂
