Show Me Your Nudes: Lipstick

I love a good nude lipstick. I would say 95% of the time I wear lipstick, it’s a nude. I have found a few formulations and colors that I absolutely adore so I had to share with all of you. Please tell me in the comments your favorite nude lipstick- I’m always on the hunt for new ones.

L-R: Jouer Hydrating Lipstick, Meredith | Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick, Liar | Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick, Angelic Nude | NYX Butter Lipstick, Root Beer Float | MAC Lipstick, Velvet Teddy

Jouer Hydrating Lipstick, Meredith This lipstick is surprisingly moisturizing so it doesn’t cause your lips to chap and peel (gross, I know, but that is why lipsticks and I don’t get along). I love this formulation so much, I actually own this lipstick in multiple colors. The color Meredith is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ color, with just the right combination of pink and brown.

Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick, Liar  As the name suggests, this is a sheer color which means it can be built up for more intense color. This is a pinky-brown color that looks works well with my coloring, although I think it’s more pink than brown. I also found that this very moisturizing so it doesn’t dry out my lips.

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick, Angelic Nude  This lipstick is the perfect lipstick for someone like me who hates the drying affects of most lipsticks. This is really moisturizing and Angelic Nude is  a great ‘my lips but better’ color, although it tends to look more pink on me.

NYX Butter Lipstick, Root Beer Float  NYX lipsticks are wonderful; not only are they super affordable at  $6 each (and frequently on sale), but they are very moisturizing and lightweight so it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything. Root Beer Float is a gorgeous brown mauve color that really stays put. I’ve heard an alternative way to wear these pigmented lipsticks is to blot the color off to leave your lips stained.

MAC Lipstick, Velvet Teddy  I was very late to jump on the MAC lipstick train. In fact, I only have this lipstick because my makeup artist used this on me on my wedding day. This is a matte lipstick, but it definitely doesn’t feel drying like other matte formulations I’ve used. This color is more brown than the other nudes I wear, but it doesn’t look ’90s.

Tell me in the comments your favorite nude lipsticks!

    I loved this post! Nudes are definitely my favourites! I had the NYX advent calendar this year and so have just tried the NYX butter lipsticks for the first time and OMG they’re amazing!
