My Five Favorite Nude Lipsticks.

Nude lipsticks

Nude lipsticks are definitely having a moment right now, and I know that they still get a bit of a mixed response, as we know if you don't find the right one for you it can make you look a bit wishy washy or dead.
So hopefully some of my favorites might give you the confidence to go nude, ooer!

YSL Beige Tribute 10

YSL Beige Tribute 10, look at the packaging! Its so glam and suave and most likely the only thing that I will ever own from YSL. This is a really pigmented, creamy pink beige colour, and it has the typical YSL trademark scent as well, which i'm very fond of, but if you don't like highly perfumed lipsticks then this isn't going to be for you. The only downfall that I find with this nude lipstick is that on me it doesn't last very long, but on the plus side it does wear off very naturally. Its swings and roundabouts.

Illamasqua Tease

I love this shade from illamasqua, its more of a lip blocker then a nude lippie, almost like that shade that you get when  you put foundation over your lips but not as ghastly. Its got a pink undertone to it though, so you don't look completely dead. I tend to pat this one on so as not to get the stuck on lips effect. It also just helps to mute it down and blend it out. This is a very comfortable wearing satin finish. 

MAC Japanese Maple

MAC Japanese Maple my favorite MAC nude lipstick. MAC describe this as a frosted light beige, I describe this as a creamy wash of beige warmth. I don't think there is anything about this lipstick that I don't like. It has a lovely satin like finish, it lasts a good few hours and it has the classic MAC vanillary lipstick scent. 

Laura Mercier Velour Lips Lovers Sensual

Laura Mercier Velour Lip lovers Embrace

I thought I would put the blurb of these two lipsticks together as they are both from the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers range. These lipsticks are a semi matte finish, so you get the longevity and look of a matte lipstick, but the wearability of a satin finish. The top lipstick is Sensual, which is a lovely neutral nude and the bottom is Embrace, a pink nude that is absolutely divine. The staying power of these lipsticks are fantastic, I get about six hours wear out of them before I have to touch up!

So there we have it, What are your favorite nudes lipsticks?
