Get the perfect nude lipstick
I never really used to understand nude lipsticks, I always thought if you wanted to look completely ‘done’ you’d have to wear a coloured lipstick… Needless to say I’ve learnt a lot since then.
Rimmel | Lasting finish by Kate | 45
YSL | Rouge volupte | 1
Mac | Amplified | Blankety
Rimmel | Lasting finish by Kate | 40
Essence | Nude Love | 11
As you can see all the nudes have slightly different undertones. Blankety is a brown nude, and YSL 1 is a pinky nude etc.

This lipstick lives in my handbag and is my favourite lipstick at the moment (this changes quite regularly) but for the past few weeks this is what I use most days. It was a few pounds, I bought this in Ireland last year and haven’t seen it in shops since! I’ll definitely buy more when I find it. Totally recommend! It goes with any make up look!
YSL | No.1
This was my first ever expensive lipstick purchase, and I’m on my 3rd one because I love it so much! This is one people compliment me regularly on, 9/10 times I wear it someone will ask what it is. It’s more than just a nude, it’s got that pinky tone which looks great with any make up look too!

If you’re a regular on my blog and Instagram you’ll know I recently bought the two Kate nudes. This nude is a little tricky to wear, as it can look like those dreaded concealer lips, but when you want attention on your lips and don’t want I faff with a red this could be a great one for you. It reminds me of Myth by Mac cosmetics and it you’re looking for something a bit different…
Mac | Blankety
Next is my newest Mac purchase, I absolutely loved Mac Hue as a nude, and it’s great but it wore off quite easily and I was getting through it so quickly I decided I wanted a change, and Blankety is that change. It’s a browny nude and I really love this lipstick, not just because of the super cute name. If you’ve tried pinky nudes and they weren’t for you this could be a great option.
Rimmel | Kate | 45
Last up is Rimmel’s Kate nudes in 45. I’ve recommended this lipstick to a few people and all have raved about it. If you’re slightly older or are just looking for a colour that isn’t over the top, and just gives a nice subtle bit of colour, this is for you! This is another browny lipstick and for around £5 you can’t go wrong!
I’ve got a new white background for my photos and I think it makes such a difference and will improve my pictures in my blogs and on Instagram – yay!
