It’s autumn and everyone’s rejoicing in the return of the berry lip. But the poor, faithful nude is being completely overlooked. The only colour that I reach for each morning before work are the baby pinks – they’re so easy to throw on but can make you look 10x more put together (on the outside at least…).
Since lipstick is one of my least favourite aspects of make up, but has been the thing I’ve been most excited to apply lately, I thought I’d share my 5 favourite nude lipsticks of the moment.
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Kim KW’
The only completely non-matte of the bunch, but equally as pigmented and beautiful as the rest. One of my favourite favourites…can that be a thing?!
Colour: light pinky beige with warm undertones.
Finish: creamy, but with a pigmented, natural sheen
Tip: Try this lipstick over the top of MAC’s Stripdown lipliner
My boyfriend bought me this lipstick for my birthday earlier this year, and it has seen me right through, serving as one of my most faithful lipsticks.
Colour: light-toned rosy beige
Finish: matte, but completely non-drying and creamy
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ‘Child Star’
A new addition to my collection. I honestly hate the vast majority of liquid lipsticks, but this is so good – not drying at all, and not sticky.
Colour: soft, pinky beige with cooler undertones
Finish: completely matte, but without the tight, dry feeling of some liquid lipsticks
Tip: This lipstick also works really nicel over the top of MAC’s Stripdown lipliner
Charlotte Tilbury ‘Nude Kate’
Colour: peach-toned nude pinky/beige
Finish: creamy, but very pigmented and non-glossy
Tip: I love wearing Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Blondie’ lipgloss over the top of this! It turns the colour into even more of a baby pink, and is so easy to wear.
· The Dupe ·
Last, but certainly not least, the best dupe I have ever found for a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick to date…
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte ’26’
Colour: light, pinky nude
Finish: semi matte, and very pigmented
No exaggeration, ’26’ and ‘Nude Kate’ are identical colours, and they have very similar finishes. The only thing I will say, is that ’26’ doesn’t last as long as ‘Nude Kate’, but it’s still amazing. I tend to wear ’26’ every day, so not to waste my beloved rose gold beauty.
