As a beauty blogger, I feel it almost necessary to be wowed and in awe of all the bright lips running rampant in the beauty and fashion world each season. But ultimately I find myself in front of the makeup counter at Saks and what do I reach for? NUDES. Always and forever. That being said, my collection (hoarders always think they are “collectors”, so humor me, would ya?) is never without multiple bold and bright lip options, but boy do I love a neutral lip. So I figured that I would try (it was a struggle) and narrow it down to my favorite (for now……) nude lip colors.
You may think I forgot to include my favorite nude glosses in here, but I typically prefer lipsticks over their glossier counterparts. The colors I have chosen run the gamut from full coverage to sheer, pink to brown based and matte finish to satin finish, but I love them all equally. Starting from the top (in clockwise order): Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Canvas, Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani 102, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita, MAC lipstick in Modesty, Flower Beauty lipstick in Petal Kiss, Burberry Lip Cover in Cameo, and NARS lipstick in Dolce Vita. Below I have swatched them all for your viewing (and possibly purchasing – you are gals after my own heart) pleasure.
