The Nude Lip

You may have seen in my previous posts… I love a bold lip. Nude lips was never something that I’d wear regularly, the furthest I’d go is a ‘my lips but better’ pinky, lilac. I have quite dark lips and wearing nude doesn’t really look right, my lips would never go fully nude. However, I’ve been using this lip product combo increasingly and actually rather like the effect.




I have been using MAC Shy Girl, a peachy nude lipstick with MAC Plushglass in Wildly Lush (an old favourite of mine). The effect is a nude, but a warm nude, lip with the gloss and plumped up effect from the plushglass. The lipstick is a Cremesheen finish, which everyone seems to love but personally I prefer the amplified finish – it’s smoother and lasts longer. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful colour but it needs a gloss over it to work for me. I LOVE the MAC Plushglasses! Such an underrated product: glossy, lip plumping and long lasting. They smell a bit like play dough, but I don’t really mind as the product works so well.

What are your favourite nude lipsticks?
