Despite being a complete liquid lipstick obsessive (proof here) I do love lipsticks as well but only tend to use them for subtle shades/ general normal day to day to wear which is why nude’s are some of my favourites. If I’m just looking for a little swipe on my lips, something nourishing and I’m not worried about it wearing down there are a few options which are my go to’s such as:
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Super Nude
The soap and glory lipstick is probably my favourite part of the collection and one of the absolute best formula’s I’ve come across. As I have so many lipsticks I rarely run out of a shade but with this, I’ve not only run out of it but I’ve rebought it which doesn’t happen often with me and makeup. The Mother Pucker Lipsticks are hydrating, glide on easily, provide enough colour to show you’re wearing something but this one, in particular, is the absolute perfect nude on me. Sometimes nude’s show off how pale I am but this doesn’t and gives me the perfect amount of colour coverage.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Stoned Rose
The main reason I love this particular lipstick is because of how moisturizing and nourishing it is, it’s almost like a lip balm with the most beautiful light rose colour which sits perfectly on the lip. If I’m just looking for the tiniest amount of colour this is absolutely perfect and gives my lips the kind of sheen you never really get with a liquid lipstick. The coverage is almost opaque but it’s so lightweight you can’t really feel it on the lips. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G range from Charlotte Tilbury are the classic go-to shades from her collection so there’s a reason why Stoned Rose is a part of this, although I don’t hear enough people champion how great it is.
Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
The cult classic mac shade is popular for a reason as it is super subtle in colour but suits almost every skin tone. Mac themselves describe the matte finish lipstick as a deep tone beige and on me, it glides on as a near perfect nude shade. Despite it being a matte finish it is really comfortable and not drying with plenty of staying power. One of the best things about these lipsticks is that they don’t accentuate the fine lines on the lips and Velvet Teddy provides a great base to work with.
