Since the rise of Kylie Jenner (and her lips) nude lips have been everywhere. I have never been a huge fan of bright lips on myself anyway, but I’ve also never been huge on wearing lipstick as my lips are always in desperate need of moisture. However, 2014 for me was the year of the lipsticks as my lipstick collection expanded out of nowhere.
I use to spend a lot of time in Standsted airport as I travelled to and from Porto quite a lot, so the Mac counter there was the real instigator of the problem. And then I started to go to Boston with work, and Mac is so much cheaper in the US so I could buy so many more lipsticks…. Ahh I’m getting excited just thinking about it!
Here are my top 5 nude Mac lipsticks:
5) Half ‘n’ Half
This was my first delve into the nude world and I was so in love with it… until I left it in my handbag next to the heating on a train journey from Nottingham to London. As it is now a weird shape and difficult to manoeuvre I rarely use this lipstick anymore but it is such a pretty colour. It’s the perfect pinky nude for my skin tone and thanks to its texture, it covers all imperfections on the lips.
4) Ramblin’ Rose
This was a major impulse buy that I do not regret! It’s more on the pink side and a frost so might not be considered a nude
to everyone, but I think it adds a cute little pop of colour and is a nice addition to my nude family.
I was absolutely obsessed with this colour and until very recently (before meeting my soul mate Mocha
) it was a staple in my makeup bag. It’s a lustre so it looks so glossy, and my favourite way to wear it is to darken it up with Plum lipliner (See picture here
2) Velvet Teddy
This colour is the s***.
I am such a fan of this matte little number by itself or to get Kylie Jenner-fied I’ll use Whirl lipliner to really get the party started (see video here
This is my absolute favourite lipstick at the moment it just looks so sexy, no need for any liner for this one, I just rock it solo. Mocha is a bit on the terracotta side and a satin so it goes on so easily and is oh so kissable. I feel like such a spice when I wear this colour.What are your favourite Mac nude lipsticks?
