Boosting Your Confidence with Lipstick
I love nude lips - nude gloss, nude lipgloss, even just a tinted balm! But if I want an easy confidence boost then my go to is a bright pop of color! I go for bright oranges, true reds, pops of pink, and in the fall and winter will even reach for deep burgundy shades. When I’m wearing these bright shades I want to be sure it stays where it’s supposed to be and doesn’t end up all over my face, so my go to formula is liquid lipstick. Liquid lipsticks dry down, are completely matte and shouldn’t transfer. The perfect liquid lipstick should be all those things, but also not leave your lips too dry! I’ve found one brand that fits the bill for me - Dose of Colors. Their liquid lipsticks come in a variety of shades (including nudes for all skin tones), don’t dry out the lips, are pigmented, and don’t transfer.

My favorite nude lipstick
Today I am sharing my favorite nude lipstick and the long journey to find it. When I first started wearing lipstick, I didn’t understand why anyone would wear nude shades when you could wear every other color of the rainbow. It wasn’t until my twenties that nude shades became popular and I set out to find the perfect one. I have fair skin and naturally pink lips, so nude shades that are more brown or tan don’t look right on me. I did find an amazing shade almost immediately. It was from the now discontinued Mary Kate and Ashley Makeup line. It was a glossy nude that was just the right mix of pink and tan tones. I went through probably 5 tubes of that one. When they discontinued the line, I bought every tube that was left. It lasted a while, but soon I was on the hunt again. The next one I tried and liked was Maybelline, in the shade Born with It. That one worked for a while. I used up an entire tube and then couldn’t find it anywhere. After a year or so, it was back, but it wasn’t quite the same. I don’t know if they tweaked the formula slightly or if the color of my lips changed slightly, but my just right product was suddenly a little too pink. It was the tiniest difference, but it was a noticeable difference. From there, I set about looking for another perfect shade. I tried just about every drugstore brand and came up empty. I was the Goldilocks of lipstick. This one is too pink, this one is too tan. I didn’t try a lot of prestige brands until recently. I had my makeup professionally done and saw the difference good products make and set about replacing everything in my makeup bag. I purchased MAC Matte Lipstick in Kinda Sexy online. In the photo, the shade looked darker, so I wasn’t expecting this shade at all. But the minute I tried it on, I knew I found my perfect shade once again. It is a matte formula, but not too drying. I like that I can choose between a matte finish or layer on a clear gloss for a glossy finish. I can see myself repurchasing when this tube is gone.

Versatile make up with colour payoff
This has to be one of my new favourite products. It blends beautiful on the face and lasted all day. It wore off my lips after a while but faded into a beautiful coral. I am obsessed. It isn’t drying and feels good on the lips and face! I need them all! What’s you’re favourite nudestix product?

Lips Like Kim K 👄
I think I’ve tried every neutral matte lip ever made & this one knocks them all out of the water. Idk about y’all but I just want a solid Kim K nude and I just don’t love the formula of her products so I’ve been on the hunt and finally found winners. It is borderline maddening to try to find a nude lip that doesn’t wash out my light complexion but these are ITTTT. 📍My Skin: light with warm/pink undertones (aka ya girl is pinky/red always which is so annoying bc a lot of nude lips have rosy hues that don’t play well) 📍Claims: Smashbox claims this lipstick is “ultra-comfortable, non-drying, weightless feel. It’s also waterproof & stays plush for 8 hours & won’t feather.” 📍Dolllas: $24 for a 0.13 tube but I actually have had the color fair game for a year and the formula hasn’t dried out & I wear it pretty often! 📍Recomendation: this is like the only matte lip I’ll wear anymore, sooo good! But you GOT TO prep your lips! Like every matte lip ever made, this product obv dries down and can be drying. I kind of hate that brands say things like “non-drying!!” because we know that’s just not true based on the nature of the product. However, this lipstick does not pill and flake the way others do!! I only have the nude colors (swatched with names in photos) but I have heard the reds or darker pigments are more flakey so I can only speak for the colors I have! It definitely doesn’t feather and the applicator makes it easy to use as liner first & then fill in! The color has solid staying power and as long as you avoid greasy foods (bc nothing can withstand those burgers ok) actually stays on through eating/drinking!!! Color I’m wearing in photo is Stepping Out (deep nude) smashbox - Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick #CherieCreator

HG nude lip for deep skin: NARS powermatte 💄
i was so delighted when i found this brownish rose shade called ‘somebody to love’ by NARS. it is so still difficult to find a perfect nude shade for brown skin - not too chalky, not too pink, not too dark, not too much contrast with my natural lip color. NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigment is a long-wearing product - I’ve had it on for 5 hrs today with no touch-ups. it is neither drying nor moisturizing - just kind of neutral. i usually reapply lip products throughout the day (even if it’s just lip balm), and i love that i don’t really need to think about this one. i purchased this for $26 at sephora and i will definitely repurchase. one of my 2020 goals is to clean out my makeup and get down to less than 10 lip colors, and this will be one of them.
