3 Pinky-Nude Lipsticks Everyone Needs In Their Life
Kevyn Aucoin Evermore - it never feels like the Kevyn Aucoin brands gets much love, which is a shame as it is AMAZEBALLS! Yes, you can only really find it in store at Space NK, but it's well worth the effort and potentially shit service (or just go online via Cult Beauty instead). Evermore is the lightest of all three shades featured here - a bit of a 'my lips but better'. The formula is rich and creamy, doesn't drag and wears for hours. It's matte in finish but easy to wear and won't need lots of prep in advance. I'll definitely be hunting down other shades in the same formula. £26
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Liv It Up - The Tilbury's new lipstick collection is essentially one that dreams are made of. It features 12 new shades (and 4 re-issues), each inspired by a celeb lady. £1 from each lipstick sale is being donated to Women for Women International, so if you're feeling a bit guilty about spending £23 on a lipstick, this definitely helps to balance that out. It's also a great organisation that supports thousands of the world's most socially-excluded women. Charlotte has collaborated with 12 superstar women to create the new shades. I LOVE the Liv It Up shade, which is inspired by Liv Tyler and comes in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula. It's another nude-pink that's much softer than the NYX one below; you could easily wear it with a pared-down face for a laid back look or with a smokey eye for something more sultry.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Tokyo - I am OBSESSED with NYX liquid lipsticks at the moment. I have about a dozen is different shades and formulas, but Tokyo is definitely the easiest to wear for any time of day. It's quite a pink-toned nude, so *does* make it look like you're wearing lipstick, but the very slight blue undertone makes it super flattering on pretty much all skin tones. It dries down to a matte finish, but thankfully it's one that doesn't need a crap ton of lip prep and it lasts for a good 4 hours (including drinks) before you might need a little top up. The best part is that it costs £5.50, so it's almost as cheap as M&S's current lunchtime meal deal (which FYI is a rip off. The lipstick is not).
Are you a fan of any of these lipsticks? Which is your favourite nude shade?
