My Top 5 Nude Lipstick's

Hi Guys,

I am in love with Nude Lipstick's, they're so versatile as they go with so many different looks, especially when I like to wear a lot of colour on my eyes. I thought I'd share my Top 5 Nude Lipstick's as they've all I've been wearing recently, I haven't even been near my bright pink lipstick... which is a big thing for me!
I actually thought I had a lot more nude lipsticks than I do, but I've realised that I actually love these five so much, that I don't actually go near any others!
The newest edition to the family is Illamasqua Born, part of the new Dusk Collection and a matte lipstick. Which I'm always a big fan of a matte lipstick! Between the two shades, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference in the tube. It's more of a warm, almost tea rose type of shade, despite it being matte too, the formulation of this doesn't seem to dry my lips as much as other matte lipsticks, which is always a bonus!

Probably my all time favourite nude lipstick is Illamasqua Rosepout, its a beautiful pale pink nude shade. It belongs to the Glamore range, so although its insanely pigmented, its not drying on the lips and glides on effortlessly. I also hardly have to touch it up throughout the day, as it stays put even through eating and drinking most of the time.
My last three are all from MAC, including my first two ever proper lipstick purchases from MAC. After seeing them pop up in so many of Fleur De Force's videos, I went for Creme Cup and Hue! They have been trusty friends ever since, both are a cremation formula, which I love from MAC as they're so comfortable to wear and a dream to apply. They're almost no fuss lipsticks as you don't have to be too precise with them, but they do need a few more top ups than the Illamasqua ones.

Creme Cup is my most used, its creamy candy baby pink shade, it goes with almost anything and if you're pale like me, it won't wash you out. Hue is a more of a peachy sister to Creme Cup, its a lot more brown based, but still has a hint of pink so again it won't wash you out.

Finally more of a recent MAC lipstick love, is the famous Velvet Teddy. I had this sat in my drawer for so long and never tried it as I thought its pretty much everywhere with the Kylie Jenner craze, how I wish I'd used it sooner. Its the darkest nude that I own and a lot more brown based compared to the other four. Its another Matte formulation, which I again love as they don't tug when being applied and are long lasting.

If you have any nude lipstick recommendations, let me know! I'm ridiculously obsessed just now and although I probably don't "need" anymore lipsticks, another few won't hurt.... right?

  1. I really fancy picking up Rosepout, you should try MAC Syrup, its a lightly more berry nude but it is lovely.

  9. I prefer pinking nudes, at the moment I am really liking Tanya Burr's lipgloss in Afternoon Tea because I am really liking the look of glosses in the summer. Thanks for sending over your link of the #bbloggers chat tonight have really enjoyed reading!

  10. I'm always looking for new nude lipsticks to try! I've never bought one from Illamasqua so I'll have to look at those. My favourite nude at the minute is MACs Peach Blossom! Such a pretty pink.

  14. I love Velvet Teddy! It was actually my very first nude lipstick, from any brand! As my skin tone is much warmer than yours it translates a little bit light on me, but I love it regardless.

    Great post!
