Yay it’s the start of the weekend and today is National Lipstick Day (apparently), and here’s my favourite lipstick, well my two favourites as I couldn’t make my mind up! Clearly I have way too many nudes (lipsticks that is!) in my collection as my two favourites are nudes… I think it’s because nudes are so versatile and their the only shades I personally feel comfortable wearing during the day.
Bare – Kylie Cosmetics
This liquid lipstick is the perfect nude for me, for once a nude is light enough and has the right peachy/ pink undertone. Bare ($27) is one of Kylie Cosmetics’ velvet liquid lipsticks which don’t dry down to a full matte, so it’s very comfortable on the lips and wears really nicely. Bare come as a lip kit, so you get a matching lip liner for accurate precision.
Velvet Teddy – MAC Cosmetics
This lipstick doesn’t need any introduction, Velvet Teddy (£17.50) is one of the most iconic lipsticks in the makeup world.- Everyone and their mum has it! It’s so iconic that I have the limited edition packaging as it’s one of the brand’s bestselling products.
The matte nude lipstick is a noticeably darker nude compared to Bare and is flattering on a range of skin tones. It’s one of those shades you could keep in your bag and wear for any occasion. This lipstick is extremely pigmented and long wearing. It’s easy to apply and I don’t tend to need a lip liner as the formula glides on well with crisp lines.
