5(0) shades of Nudes – my top 5 Nude lipsticks

Hello my lovely Fashionistas! It is Make Up Monday time!


Apologies for the title, it is a tad tacky but thought it might just get your attention.


Finding a nice nude lipstick with my complexion isn’t easy. Most often nudes are actually lighter than my lips or skin colour and that makes me look a little odd.

So here are the ones I found that have a slight tinge of either mauve or pink, to give me that better than bare lips look and still seem nude enough to pair up with dark smokey eyes.

  1. I love MAC viva glam. Nudes are a tough one because they change in different lights. I always end up buying one with too much pink but think I might look at a few of these. Thanks Barbe x

    1. Very hard to photograph Jenni, even though i took those lipsticks within 15 minutes in the same position, they all look very similar. I have been told Bodyshop has some nice ones too. x

  2. I agree, I like nudes with a tinge of mauve. The Australis one looks awesome on you though 🙂
