Favorite Products for Nude Lips! ♥

Hello and happy March everyone! I am so, so happy to be sharing my thoughts on my favorite nude lipsticks today - because all I’ve been wearing for the past month are nudes! As ridiculous as this may sound, before this month, I didn't really have a nude lipstick that I considered my "everyday" lipstick let alone a collection of easy-to-wear nude shades. I love trying out new lipsticks so much that I never really settle on one shade before I find another one that I like better Recently, however, I've found that while I can cycle through bright lipsticks on the weekends, they're not always practical when it comes to the workweek! Plus, if I’m being honest with myself, wearing a nude lipstick simplifies things so much more - way less worrying about lipstick on my teeth or eating with lipstick on! So without further ado, my favorite nude lip products!

Lord and Berry Lipliner in 3035 Nude: I’ve mentioned this product in a previous post before, but it still holds true - this lipliner by Lord & Berry is one of my all-time favorite lipliners! It’s a wonderful warm brown lipliner that adds a little bit of warm color to the lips but still looks incredibly natural. My only gripe is that I wish it would last longer! Since I use it all over the lips (instead of actually lining the lips) and it’s a product that requires sharpening, a lot of times the product gets used up way too quickly. 

Milani Color Statement Lipliner in Spice: Since the Lord & Berry lipliner I just mentioned above runs at around $18 per liner, I’ve been on the hunt for a more affordable dupe! The closest liner I have found is the Milani Color Statement Lipliner in Spice. It typically runs between $3-$4 which is a much more affordable price point for a comparable product! Although this shade is not an exact dupe for the 3035 Lord & Berry liner (I think it’s a tad more cool toned), for the way lower price, I’m happy 😃

Elf Matte Lipstick in Praline: This lipstick from Elf has been my favorite on-the-go lipstick! It’s extremely affordable ($3 whoo!) and is a pretty close match for my natural lip color so it’s been so nice to have this lipstick handy for long days when I need a refresh or just floating around in my bag in case I have a lipstick emergency! Plus, since it’s so affordable, I have quite a few on hand just in case I lose one!

TheBalm Meet Matte Hughes in Committed: I actually received this in an ipsy bag way long ago (Ipsy: October 2015) but didn’t fully appreciate until now (almost a year and a half later!). I love this shade because it’s a little on the pink side of things, but not so pink that it doesn’t still count as a nude shade. It’s extremely wearable but gives off those just-came-inside-after-a-frolick-in-the-snow kind of pinky vibes 😃

Colour Pop Ultra Satin Lip in Magic Wand ♥ 

Last but certainly not least, this color pop ultra satin lip shade has lived in every single purse I own for the past month!  During the holidays, I purchased the Colour Pop On a Whim mini ultra satin lip set (Review: Here) and fell in love with the Magic Wand shade! While I'd originally gone on a Colour Pop binge with the intention of trying out the ultra matte formula, I actually ended up loving the formula of the satin lipsticks much more than the mattes. I loved this particular shade so much that I now have not one, not two, but three of this lipstick because obviously, I need one for each of my purses, too 😛 

What I love about this shade is that it’s very muted and evens out the lips nicely - which makes the whole look feel more put together and allows the focus of the look to be on the eyes. Nothing too crazy or fancy - just a more put together, neutral look! I want to say that this shade is a "my lips but better" kind of shade but if I’m being honest with myself, my lips look nothing like this shade (my lips are naturally a more purple-y tone). The reason this shade falls into that category is because it looks like a shade that could naturally go with my face but actually goes with my face a lot better than my actual lips do. Whew, that was a mouthful!

The thing I love about all of these lip products is that while they are all nudes, there is still a lot of variety in the color and tone of each product! They are all extremely wearable and have made my everyday make-up routine much simpler! While these nude lip products have been amazing for me, however, a tip I have for buying nude lip products is that if you’re looking for a good nude shade, look for suggestions from bloggers who have skin tones similar to yours. I cannot stress this enough! I have made this mistake time and time again by buying a nude lip product that looks beautiful on someone else only to find that it looks absolutely atrocious on my skin tone! 😛

Have you tried any of these nude lip products? Which ones are your favorites? Are there any other nude lipsticks you think I should try? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
