Beauty Discussion - The "You" Lipstick Shade

The You Lipstick Shade

I'm about to hit you with some real talk...

Like most of my make-up musings, my moments of contemplation came from de-cluttering my stash. Armed with a handful of past their best and whittled down MAC lipsticks ready to trade in for a shiny tube of MAC Angel I realised that when it comes to lip colours, I seldom if ever step out of my comfort zone. When purchasing a lipstick or lip pencil if it isn't a milky, somewhat creamy nude based pink I'm not all that interested.

I know what you are thinking, this is a cry for help? A plea for you to help me break free from this habit? Nope, not even close, rather I am looking for your recommendations based on similar shades. At the moment and for a long time my fail safe nude pinks are: MAC Angel, Tom Ford Spanish Pink, Rimmel East End Snob Lip Liner and Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Native - all very, very similar and all very much me. Sure every now and then I bust out a red lipstick or really push the boat out and slick on a plum or berry hue but my fail safe lip shade is a nude pink and I don't see this changing any time soon. Why should it?

My advice for selecting your "you" shade? It should be a shade you feel utterly comfortable in, a shade that enhances not our your lips but your entire face. Forget the my lips but better theory - (unless that is your comfort blanket of shades) any lip colour goes.I guess when you know, you know!

So tell me what is your go to nude pink: any brand, any price - I want to expand my collection.

  1. My nude pink lipstick/gloss recommendation would be Dior Addict's Fluid Stick in the shade 373 Rieuse, it's my favourite nude to go!

  2. I seem to have the opposite problem, I have such a variety of lipstick colours that the idea of having a staple that's really me, and everyone associates with me, seems nice. Though at the moment my go-to everyday nudes are probably MAC Creme Cup and MAC Pure Zen. :)

  3. I love when a lip colour makes you feel like you can take on the world. Dark nudes defiantly do that for me, i just feel 10 times better when i have it on!

  4. My favourite pink is Rimmel Kate Lipstick in 03 - it is gorgeous and my go to for a nice, "natural" pink.

    As for my signature lip colour, it has to be anything dark.nI do go for natural colours sometimes but largely it's vampy colours. Burgundy, berry, smoky purple and even black - every time a new colour in that shade range appears from a brand, all my friends are sending me links!

  9. I love both 17's Mirror Shine lipsticks in Beehive and Belle for the MBB look, but Belle looks a bit better with my fair skin so I wear it a lot! xx

  14. I actually have very few nude shades but of what I have I love using Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Sex Machine it's just wearable with pretty much any look.

  15. I'm the same for rarely stepping out of my comfort zone when it comes to lipstick, I tend to stick to either nude or pink toned looks x

  16. Oddly enough, I think my face best suits either nothing at all, or a deep, wine/berry red. My go-to is MAC Viva Glam I or Le Metier de Beaute Madaket!

  17. The Charlotte Tilbury one in Bitch Perfect is another lovely nude/pink! I have fairly pigmented lips, so I'm personally partial to a slightly richer, more rosey color, like the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita. x

  19. My 'perfect nude lipstick' is MAC Pure Zen and I use it every day I can't imagine my day without it! Your choices are also amazing, these colours suit my skin pefectly:) However, I own MAC Angel and it doesn't look good with my skin colour:(

  20. I have to say I am not a pink or rose lipstick wearer at all. If a lipstick turns pink on me - that's the end of it. My staple colours are bronze, red, peachy and now I am totally loving the marsala colours of rich burgundy/brown.
    However my daughter in law loves the nude pinks. So if I get a gift with purchase bag, it nearly always has a nude pink in it. The last one I gave away was Clinique's Rosette - a very pretty (for pink nude lovers) rosy nude. Another one I gave her was an Elizabeth Arden lipstick in rose too. Both of them she loved and they really suit her.

  21. You would probably love Chanel Coco Rouge in Mademoiselle - it's a beautiful neutral pink, think 'my lips but better'. Although I have to be honest, my favourite nude-dusty-rose lipstick is actually Rimmel Lasting Finish 077 Asia; it goes perfectly with my skin.

  22. Soap & Glory The Missing Pink - more on the pinky side of nude but it's my go-to!

  23. MAC creme in your coffee/cosmo are very pretty - a little brown based but I think that would look really nice on you! xxx

  24. I've never really been one for nude lipstick to be honest, I'd say my 'colour' would be a dark, berry purple or red xox
