Top 5 Luxury Nude Lipsticks

Friday 18 December 2015

When did you last go nude? No, I'm not being over familiar - I'm talking lipstick of course! 

Nude lips are the classic that never dates. At this time of year, with smokey eyes and glitter galore, they're a must to complete a look. 

They're also perfect for busy mummies, so I've found myself reaching for the nude shades in my collection much more frequently lately. 

I'm choosing nude lips over brights and seasonal berries because you can swipe them on one-handed while running out the front door without too much precision.

Every girl needs a nude lip wardrobe. It may seem simple but there's a whole world of different textures, finishes and shades to choose from.

I have more nude lip products than I care to mention but hey, it's a look that never goes out of style.

Here are my top five. Dive in…

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer - Nude Pop

A relative newcomer in my collection, I reach for this lipstick all the time. Probably because it's just so easy to wear. 

This is because of the amazing formula. Tt's as comfortable as a balm to wear and the coverage is smooth, creamy and quite sheer- the perfect thing to chuck on as you’re dashing out the door. 

This shade is quite a rose pink nude, which makes it very easy to wear and also perks up your complexion like a shot of espresso when it's been a long night.

Mac Amplified - Blankety

This is the Hollywood nude, a paled-out light pink  thatreally pops against a tan.

A favoured shade of Kim Kardashian, this shade pairs brilliantly with dramatic eye makeup.

Of all the Mac lipstick formulations, I love the Amplified range as they're super saturated with pigment- a must for strong makeup looks.

YSL Rouge Volupte - 1 Nude Beige

This nude I love because it's so luxurious! One glance at the iconic heavy gold YSL packaging and you know this is something special.

I also love the consistency and the light, cool feel of this- it's like wearing a gloss it's so lightweight and silky.

The shade is polished perfection, and very pretty. The formula leaves a beautiful satin sheen on the lips. An ultra girly nude lip option.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G - Bitch Perfect

For me, this is the ultimate nude, and certainly the most flattering. Something about the coral undertones really pops with my warm/neutral skin and it just looks really rich and expensive on.

Since I bought this, it's been a go-to shade that I don't ever want to be without. 

Nars Satin Lip Pencil - Biscayne Park

A warm, brown toned nude, this gives great dimension to your pout. The glide on smoothness and incredible colour payoff of this handy little crayon are second to none.

The format is absolutely brilliant as it allows you to get a very precise shape and outline as well as filling in with a couple of strokes. The only slight drawback is that I wish it was a twist-up crayon instead of one that needs sharpening, as that wastes product and they also look awful when they get all short and stubby.

Still my love for this is so strong not much can put me off! It looks brilliant on, wears nicely and carries just enough impact to define lips without shouting for attention. Love!

So those are my absolute favourite nude lip shades- one for every occasion. 

What do you recommend? Any I've missed that I need to try? Let me know!
