Share Your Nudes...

Best Nude Lipsticks UK

Lipsticks that is.

Nothing like a little click bait to see you through Thursday and into the weekend huh? All jokes aside, I am seriously stuck in a rut - a nude lipstick rut no less. You see I am very much a nude lipstick kinda gal and yet all my usual go to shades suddenly don't seem all that flattering: MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick is suddenly too pink toned, MAC Whirl Lip Liner is too deep and MAC Honeylove Lipstick is now too yellow. I know what you are thinking, maybe step away from MAC lipsticks for a while? I fully concur.

Other relied upon nudes in my collection include: Charlotte Tilbury Nude Kate Lipstick - too pale, Tom Ford Nude Vanille Lipstick - really too light and a poor choice on my part, Tom Ford Sable Smoke Lipstick- maybe when I'm tanned this will be a great shade but at the moment it just looks off, and I can't quite put my finger on it. I'm also partial to YSL Rouge Volumpte Lipstick in Nude Beige which is a great pinky-nude that looks great when I'm really blonde, but at the moment it is just a little meh! As is Urban Decay Liar Lipstick, another pinky nude that is usually very flattering and yet I'm currently finding it difficult to get excited about.

The budget choices that I have at home are no less helpful nor flattering: Rimmel Nude Delight Lipstick - too yellow toned and NYX Nude Matte Lipstick is so pale that I may as well just apply concealer to my lips and call it a day.

So where next? I really don't know, I know what I want: a creamy, non-matte, medium toned  nude lipstick that leans slightly pink. I don't care if it is budget or high end, I just want a shade that I can slick on any time, anywhere and know it looks great.

Do you have any recommendations? And generally speaking what is your go to nude lipstick of choice?

  1. I have Blankety from Mac which is a very nude shade with an ever so slight pink undertone to it. But my favourite is Darling by Gosh as it's a gorgeous medium - toned nude pink. I like to pair this up with East End Snob by Rimmel. X

  5. L'oreal Fairest Nude is my go-to nude lipstick. I buy two or three at a time and use it like Chapstick. It's inexpensive and is very natural looking for a blonde.

  6. I think try Mac's Mehr lipstick, but it's matte and a little on the pinky side, so I don't really know.

  9. Kiko Milano's Smooth Temptation lippie stick in 05 Peony is my favourite pink-toned nude that isn't matte, it just looks healthy and hydrated and is surprisingly long-lasting!

  10. Charlotte Tilbury's Very Victoria is a great nude!

  11. One of my favourite nudes of all times is Marc Jacobs Role Play and I think it fits your description ;)

  12. I really like MAC 'Faux,' Laura Mercier 'Stoned Rose,' and NARS Audacious Lipstick in 'Barbara.' I bought Charlotte Tilbury 'Nude Kate' a couple months ago and realized it didn't suit me at all when I wore it for the first time. I have really pale skin and on me, the colour looked almost orange! I ended up giving it to my sister (she's much darker than I am).

  13. Marc Jacobs New Nudes in Anais or Role Play for a high-end choice, and Milani Nude Creme for a budget option.

  14. I love the Topshop lipstick in Devotion, my perfect nude x

  15. Chanel Rouge Coco in Adrienne is a beaut and I think fits the brief!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybelline have a really nice range of nude lipsticks. My all time favourite nude lipstick is pure zen by Mac because it has pink undertones in it so it doesnt wash me out. I also love the too faced melted nude lipstick.

  20. I also have lots of trouble finding nude shades that suit me! I had the same issue with MAC 'Honeylove' - I thought it was too yellow toned however I now wear MAC 'Dervish' lip liner underneath with 'Honeylove' on top and I think it adds just the right amount of base colour so that 'Honeylove' doesn't come off too yellow! xx

  23. Estee Lauder colour envy in Desirable! My go to lipstick in general since it's subtle but also has enough coverage and colour to make your lips look great.

  29. Illamasqua rosepout. It is the ONE. I tend to wear it with illamasqua naked but it is just as beautiful on its own!

  30. Nyx high voltage lipstick in flutter kiss is a perfect pinky brown or Barry m truffle shuffle is a great shiny mauve nude

    ReplyDelete
  31. My fave is Mac Kinda Sexy its matte but not too drying or flat

    ReplyDelete
  32. Urban Decay x Gwen Staffarni 'Ex-Girlfriend' is a nude I actually love. I got a sample and just fell in love with it. I'm not a massive fan of nudes as a rule, but it's a very flattering sheer that you can build and feels lovely on the lips.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It sounds like you need MAC Brave, its a nude that leans more pink. I personally love MAC Taupe but its more of Brown nude. Let us know when you find the one :) xx

  34. Rimmel Apocolips in 201 Solstice or MAC Patisserie x

  35. I've slowly gone off Velvet Teddy, as I feel it gives me a bit of a 'The Only Way Is Essex' look which I'm not too fond of, ha! I almost bought Honeylove the other day, but stopped myself when I realised that NYX matte lipstick in 'butter' is a total budget dupe for it! I'm definitely buying that instead. My favourite nude right now is NYX liquid suede in 'sandstorm' because it looks completely different if you use a little to when you build it up xx

  37. Have you tried the Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Amaretto Swirl, it's one of my most favourite nudes. I have a blog post if you want to see a swatch (it's called Nude Obsession) but it's a goodun and I love the formula too! I hope you find a new nude soon!

  39. Hi! I just tried NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 02 Stockholm and find it a lovely shade of nudey pink. Do give it a try if you havent! It's not a bullet lipstick but is easy to apply and dries to a lovely matte finish :)

    1. I have the Nyx one in Stockholm too and love it as I find it to be very similar to my favourite nude as I mentioned earlier which is Mac Kinda Sexy. Pinterest has loads of pictures of swatches of these colours.

  40. I use Modesty by MAC, it's really lovely I just wish it would stay on better but maybe that's down to me applying it in a better way. :)

  41. Right now I'm loving the new Kate Moss for Rimmel nude collection as well as my Jouer lip cream in Noisette (more brown than nude, but that's my kinda nude)

  49. I hate it when I go off my favourite lipsticks!!! My go to nude at the moment is MAC stripdown lip liner all over the lip and MAC myth on top. I find myth a bit too light on its own so stripdown makes it slightly darker xx

  50. I love nude lipsticks!!! These look great!!
