My Top 5 Nude Lipsticks


Some hoard highlighters or have an endless supply of mascara's, but for me it's lipsticks. I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect nude shade that's easy to throw on and will look good with any makeup look, and these are my favourites from my ever growing collection.

RIMMEL THE ONLY 1 MATTE LIPSTICK: TRENDSETTER - £6.99* -

Not only is this a MAC Velvet Teddy dupe, but finally a true nude lipstick that suits my pale complexsion. The formulation is one of the best I've tried from a more affordable brand, it's matte without being drying on the lips. This is definitely the palest nude I'll go for with a beige undertone, I have tried MAC's Honeylove but it just washes me out. This is already on my repurchase list one I've used it up.

MAC's VELVET TEDDY- £15.50

Talking of Velvet Teddy, I had to include it. Although I have a dupe, Velvet Teddy is ever so slightly darker, teamed with Spice lipliner it creates the perfect 90's lip look for a night out. Like Trendsetter, VT has a matte finish, although the Rimmel lipstick formulation is really good, the MAC matte lipsticks really do glide across the lips without any dragging, so maybe a better option if you have very dry lips. This is the first MAC lipstick I have ever finished too, so that's saying something.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY K.I.S.S.I.N.G LIPSTICK BITCH PERFECT - £23

This is probably the most reached for out of all the lipsticks mentioned. Ideally I need to find a dupe for this considering it's £23 a pop, but for now I'm more than happy to pay a little extra because this shade is stunning. It's a peachy pink nude with some shimmer running through it. This shade is so flattering and the shimmers manage to make my lips look fuller - always a good thing. The formulation is moisturising and feels comfortable, lasting around 5-6 hours when teamed with my favourite Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner pillow talk, two fab picks as an everyday lip option if you don't mind the splurge!

NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM  STOCKHOLM - £5.50

I have so many of the Soft Matte Lip Creams and when I saw Vivianna Does Makeup  The Anna Edit mention Stockholm I knew I needed it! Stockholm is quite light but it has a hint of peachy pink in it, I can just about get away with it at the moment, but it is my go to summer nude when I have a bit more of a tan, lasting a good 5-6 hours during the day. The soft matte lip creams in general are a really good way to get the liquid lipstick/ matte lipstick look without something that is going to leave your lips too dry, some of my other favourite shades are Cannes and Antwerp.

KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK LOLITA - £16

Finally we have the most recent addition to my collection. This is by far the most comfortable and non-drying liquid lipstick I have ever tried. Admittedly after a days wear I am eager to remove it, but for a liquid lipstick it's still pretty good going. The shade Lolita is darker than I expected but still a lovely nude, especially for the colder months.

  1. Lovely post! The shades all look really nice on your swatches. Stockholm is also one of my everyday Nude shades but I agree it looks better with a tan as I'm pretty pale too! I really like the formula of Rimmel lipsticks as well x

  9. I love Bitch Perfect and really need to wear it more often as I photograph it all of the time but rarely wear it! I always dig shades like that out in the Spring/Summer. I have the KVD Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II and it's one of my faves, I'll have to get Lolita too! x

  11. The Rimmel Lipstick looks so beautiful and the perfect nude color! I'm such a huge fan of nude-pinks, so it seems right up my alley. I'm loving Colourpop in Contempo at the moment, which is a great 90s style pink!

  13. Love your picks! I have to be really careful with nude lips as I have really pigmented lips so anything too pale washes me out, I tried on Bitch Perfect but it didn't suit me, I was gutted!! I'm getting Velvet Teddy for xmas, I can't wait to finally try it!

    1. Ahh no way, I'm the opposite and have literally no pigmentation naturally so everything looks very dark on me. Really hope you love Velvet Teddy, it's a classic! x
