When it comes to Lip products I nearly always reach for a nude. I love playing around with different eye looks but always fall back on my trusty nude lip. They go with any eye look and especially my all time fave smokey eye so I guess that one of the reasons my make up collection has more nude toned lip products than any other.
When my gorgeous friend Emily and I were discussing a collaboration post we automatically decided it would have to be a lip product post as we are constantly updating each other on our latest lip loves. Even spending a good hour swatching together in MAC to find the perfect shade. Yet when trying to narrow down my top 3 I must say I really did struggle lol so after much deliberation here are my top 3 lip products (at the moment)
Blankety – Mac
Described as a soft pink beige this is becoming my day to day go to shade. It’s in an amplified creme finish so it’s pigmented but really comfortable on the lips with a slightly glossy look. If you have drier lips this is a fab choice as its really moisturising. that does mean it does needs to be touched up every few hours but that really doesn’t bother me as it’s a beautiful shade. On me it looks like a neutral pink mauve toned nude which is just up my street.
Whisper – L.A girl
This cool toned lip paint is simply gorgeous with a full on glossy finish. If you are fan of a lighter nude this is the one I’d recommend. It’s more creamy and pink toned than the other two. It is one of the lightest nude shade I own but its glossy finish and pink tinge stops the dreaded concealer lip. This is one I team with a dark smokey eye on a night out.
Liar – Urban Decay
The darkest of my favourite nude tones and the brownest of the bunch. I originally found this last year and have it in the original shade which I reviewed here. As well of as the newer sheer version which is a lot lighter and glossier. The original is still my all time fave of the two even though they both get a lot of use. Liar is a pinky nudey brown, which is the perfect ” your lips but better” shade. If I’m looking for a more grown up timeless colour then this is the shade I go for.
This post is in collaboration with the gorgeous Emily from British Beauty Addict. So pop over and have a read of Emily’s top three nude lip products and give her a follow. I can’t wait to see what shades she has picked and will be adding them to my wishlist if they aren’t already in my stash.
