Beauty | In the Nude...

...My Seven Favourite Nude Lipsticks

I know, I know! Why seven? Such a random number! I mean where do I even have to go these days where I can wear these seven nude lipsticks?! I guess I just went through my make-up bag(s) and handbag(s) and these are the seven nude lipsticks I like to slick on the most! You may think they all pretty much look the same, but believe me they are all different and I love them all! Swatches and deets below...

From the top:
1. MAC Patisserie, £15.50 | The ultimate my-lips-but-better (MLBB) nude - love the name and the fact that it's a bit pink, with a touch of brown with a really nourishing texture on the lips. I find it looks different on everyone!
2. Rimmel Moisture Renew in Notting Hill Nude, £6.49 | Love the really moisture drenched formula, as well as the name (hate lipsticks that just have numbers - boring)! This is more on the brown side of nude, but it's still the perfect everyday nude to slick on and make you look polished, plus it's budget friendly!
3. Chanel Rouge Coco in Adrienne, £26 | Probably my favourite of the lot! It's currently in my handbag makeup bag, and it's the one I'm reaching for the most right now. It's a peachy-pink, creamy, dreamy nude and it's the perfect marriage of lip balm and colour, whilst still being a lipstick. These were recently all reformulated and I'm loving the texture of them - so comfortable to wear!
4. L'Oreal Colour Riche in Eva's Nude, £6.99 | Another budget friendly drugstore option that's part of the Exclusive Nudes Collection. Eva's shade is 'Barely Golden' and features a hint of golden sheen. It's another contender for perfect MLBB nude, wrapped up in a moisturising, long-lasting formula. I think the pink to brown ratio is spot on!
5. Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, £23 | The rose gold packaging, the name, the formula - arghhhh! The rosier side of MLBB nude, in a super pigmented, luxurious and creamy formula, perfect paired with a smoky eye. Works equally well in the daytime as it does in the evening.
6. Rouge Dior Baume in Escapade, £23.40 | This is more of a lip balm with a serious amount of tint and I love this shade, which almost borders on nude with berry. It really does the job as a lip balm but at the same time it packs a punch with the colour. Another star of my makeup bag, it's so easy to slick this on and look chic and polished.
7. Tom Ford Lip Colour in Indian Rose, £37 | I swear I didn't just buy this because of the name! The most expensive of the bunch (duh - it's Tom Ford!) but also the pinkest. It's the perfect nudey pink - enough nude, enough pinkiness. It's especially lovely as a spring/summer nude and I love the rich, moisturising formula, plus who can resist that packaging (and that very satisfying click!). This is my special occasion nude...
