My Favourite Nude(ish) LipsticksTuesday, May 22, 2012
Anyways, time for me to talk about something I have never ever talked about: lipsticks.
There's two things I told myself that I would never wear on my face: blush and lipstick. You all know my story about blushes. A lot of girls at my school overdo their blush and ever since then, I had blushophobia. But no one ever knew my story about lipstick. It's simple, I always got scared that it might get in my teeth. But yeah, that's the story. But now I guess I have a good collection of lipsticks and here I am showing you some of my favourite nude lipsticks.
First is the L'oreal Colour Riche Le Balm in Caramel Comfort. I just recently got this if you saw my haul post. I have been trying this everyday since I got it. First I must say, it's not my FAVOURITE but I still like it. I wish I got a different colour though. I need to stop just sticking with my nude colours. The colour is just like my lip colour but better. It is pretty moisturising and even more moisturising than some of my lip balms. But the thing that really bugs me is the stay power. I notice myself all day constantly reapplying this. I guess it would be okay if you're just going out for a little bit but still want to look nice. Again, not really my favourite but I still like it.
Next up is NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. This is just a cream, what else can I say? It's not sticky and it applies very well. It doesn't even feel like you're wearing anything on your lips. And I absolutely love the matte finish it has. Just make sure you don't apply too much. But I don't really like to wear this on colder weathers because it tends to dry. Also it does kinda emphasize the lines in your lips but that hasn't been showing up lately on me because I exfoliate my lips. so make sure if you have this, use a good lip exfoliator.
This lipstick is the first nudeish lipstick I have ever bought and it is Kate Moss for Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in 14. The Lasting Finish lipsticks are actually my favourite lipsticks ever. They're very opaque and apply very smoothly and is still hydrating. It does have this plastic kinda scent to it but I don't really mind it. I feel like this colour looks great but it may not match a lot of people. I think this lipstick would look good on olive skin tones. If you don't have an olive skin tone, it might make you look like a ghost.
Last but not least is my favourite nude lipstick ever ever ever: Wet N Wild's Bare It All. This is a very opaque and matte nude lipstick (something I just LOVE). This just goes great with my skin colour and just brightens up my face when I wear this even though it's a nude. Although it's a bit drying, I can deal with it. I just make sure to always wear a lip balm under (which you should do anyways).
