My Favourite Nudes!

The last few days I have had to start organising my makeup and other things as we are decorating and moving a lot of stuff around. I have been trying to organise things into categories and this morning I has doing lipstick so I thought I would share the nudes in my collection. Nudes are always so popular and an essential for a makeup collection. They can be matched with any makeup look and suit any occasion, so these are the ones I wear most regular. 

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Pencil in Thrilled -  I love this lip pencil as it goes with all my nude lipsticks, I also wear this also on its own. Its really creamy and not drying at all, its long lasting too. I do find it hard sometimes as its a twist up one so you cant sharpen it but overall I really like it and its the only nude pencil I use at the moment.

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Crème Brulee - This one is the palest nude I have. I love these lip butters as they are really hydrating, these are more of a sheer lipstick so these are nice for day time, then you can use a lip pencil under it to make it more pigmented. These have a glossy finish to them and they are really comfortable to wear. I also like to wear this over the top of my more darker nudes in the centre of the lips to add definition.

MAC Velvet Teddy - Quite a popular nude, and one of my more darkest ones. This is probably as dark as I could go with my skin tone. Its matte so you can really create a defined nude lip. I wear this mainly for nights out, and I don't find it to be too drying for a matte lipstick either. It lasts really well and it doesn't move around.

MAC Fleur D'Coral - This is my go to peachy nude. I love this for day time as its a lustre lipstick so it has more of a sheen to it and its more sheer. This looks really nice over the top of other nude or pink lipsticks too.

Urban Decay Lipstick in Liar - I love the formulation of these lipsticks they are so moisturising you feel like your not wearing any. It is really pigmented and stays on well. This isn't matte however I just use translucent powder over it to make it matte. Its a more darker nude also and I like that I can wear it with different finishes to it for day and night. This is the most comfortable out of all of the to wear.

L'Oreal Liquid Lipstick in Nude Ballet - This is like a very highly pigmented lip gloss, and I like to wear this either on its own or over the top of the other nudes. I choose this if I want something a little more glossy if I am going on a night out or for day time if I am not wearing much makeup. It doesn't have the best staying power but as it a liquid lipstick the pigmentation is great and its not sticky and uncomfortable.

So there are my favourite nudes that I like to wear, please share yours below too.

  2. I'm such a fan of all of the Revlon Lip Butters, too. So creamy and moisturising in the winter weather! I really want to get my hands on 'Velvet Teddy' and you've only made me want it more! My all-time favourite nude is the Dior Rouge Dior Nude Lip Blush in 'Grege', which is definitely a holy-grail product of mine :)
