9 Favorite Nude Lipsticks


My most used lipsticks are nude. I can't get enough of them! Not only are they the safest bet when in a hurry, they complement every eye shadow color. I think they beat girly pink lipsticks, in my life.

Here are 9 of my favorite, most used, nude lippies:
  1. Colorbar Velvet Matte Bare
  2. MAC Patisserie
  3. Maybelline Color Sensational My Mahogany
  4. Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gloss Touch of Toffee ~ Not a lipstick, but it's creamy like one & I'd repurchase it all my life!
  5. Inglot Matte Lip Pencil #16 ~ It's not as drying as it looks! I like to wear Touch Of Toffee (above) on top of it.
  6. Lakmé Fantasy Collection Enrich Satin #132
  7. MAC Hug Me (Please excuse the blurry old pic)
  8. Lakmé Lip Love Love Haze
  9. Lakmé Aquashine Old Rose ~ Don't have a good pic of this one

Picking The Right Nude Lipstick:
Some may think nude means pale, concealer-type shades, but those make most people look sick (for me, it's MAC Myth) The most flattering nude lipsticks are almost exactly like your bare/natural lips; or 1-2 shades lighter (depending on how pigmented your lips are). I've learned never to pick anything lighter than my natural lips, and anything darker/browner don't fit in the nude category anymore (on my skin tone). All of these lippies here have a mix of peach, pink, & brown, undertones. For me, I can't go any paler than MAC Patisserie & Maybelline Touch Of Toffee

Which did you like the best out of these?

    1. 1. Patisserie is paler n has a pinker undertone and it has some shimmer. Hug Me is deeper n has more brown undertones.

      2. 129 is lighter n more nude, 132 has more pinkish peach undertones.

      God, I hope u can understand my explanations :D

  18. I follow your blog almost everyday.. I love to watch the make up tutorials that you've in here.. And, all these days, it was really hard for me to select lip shades.. I usually spend so much on lippies and when I see them on me during the day light.. God...you must be knowing how that feels right.. A few days back, when I was browsing thru, I accidentally got to take a look at your blog.. And, yes, this is what I've been waiting for.. And now, I've ordered two of the nude lippies from the above, My Mahoghany and Colorbar's Matte bare.. Am soooo waiting for them to reach me.. (ordered them from Violetbag :), my name is Violet too... :D) So, thank you so very much.. Love your blog <3

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
