The Nude Lip is a firm favourite of mine and as Autumn draws in, I feel it's a colour i'll be reaching for more often. I love how easy nude lips are to wear and how versatile they really are. I've shopped my make up stash, and after an afternoon of swatching, I've settled on My Top 5 pale skin friendly nude lip products.
So, pushing the boundaries of the word 'nude' the Bourjois Roude Edition velvet in Nude-ist is more so on the pink/rose end of the nude spectrum, but it's scraped into the top 5. I like to wear this shade with a basic eye as it finishes a look perfectly without washing you out too much with a nude on nude look. I'm a massive fan of the wet lipstick application, and I recommend building it up in light layers for an eve coverage.
2. Mac Matte Lipstick - Velvet Teddy £15.50
If you're hunting for that illusive Kylie Jenner lipstick, then look no further as this is the shade for you. Velvet Teddy is a gorgeous nude shade that is the lipstick of the moment and I've jumped on the bandwagon unashamedly. I'm just beginning to experiment with this shade and I love how it looks so far.
The Sexy Mother Pucker Lipgloss 'plumping' lip gloss range are almost like the Marmite of the make up world. Some people love the tingling and plumping sensation, while others can't stand it. I quite like the tingles as you wear this product and the colour pay off is great. However, be prepared for lipgloss hair whilst wearing this product, as they are on the sticky side.
You may have previously seen this one in my Top 5 Everyday Lipsticks for Pale Skin. The Bourjois Shine Edition Nude lipstick is actually the perfect pale skin 'my lips but better' shade and to top it off this range has a great formula which is made up from 1/4 gloss!
I love nude lipsticks and I love a bargain, so the MUA Cosmetics Lipstick in Totally Nude went straight into my basket as soon as I saw it in Superdrug. What I love about this shade as it's a really easy grab and go lipstick by itself, however when paired with a darker nude lipstick such as Velvet Teddy, you can create a beautiful Ombre Nude lip. It's £1.00 well spent and a must have for nude lipstick fans.
So these are my top 5 nude lipsticks from my stash. I'd love to hear which is your favourite, let me know in the comments and I'll try and create a look based on the most popular!
