Get Nude! // Five Everyday Lipsticks

If you watched my latest YouTube video, you’ll know that I hoard many lipsticks within the pockets of my handbag, and out of those lipsticks, not one is a bright shade. Now, don’t get me wrong, I adore a bright lip. I am quite fond of a seductive red or a playful pop of purple or pink, but the majority of the lipsticks I reach for on a daily basis are nudes, to some extent anyway. Those shades inspired this blog post, in which I have decided to show you five of my favourite ‘everyday’ lipsticks; those lipsticks that demand little commitment. in fact, these lipstick shades require no lipliner, or even a mirror (a basic level of blind lipstick application required, obvs).

001: Rimmel The One Lipstick in ‘Trendsetter’ - an affordable beige nude that mixes well with your natural lip colour to look a teensy bit rosy. The only downside, every so slightly, is the scent. Deffo your lips but better.

002: GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in ‘Matt Rose’ - probably my most worn as this colour just makes me go weak at the lips. These matte lipsticks are creamy on application, not drying and last a great length of time. This is very similar to ABH Soft Lilac and Jeffree Star Doll Parts if you’re after a liquid alternative.

003: Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in ‘Vintage Rose’ - oh holy mother of lipsticks, aren’t the American brand great? This is such an easy shade to whip out of your bag and apply on the go. It’s a lovely mauve pink hue that you just can’t fault. Super creamy and comfortable to wear and great pigment for one of the neutral shades.

004: MAC Cosmetics Velvet Teddy - everyone’s favourite nude I am sure, but I love this for those ‘nude’ days when I need less pink and more brown. This isn’t as creamy as some I have, but it’s easy and comfortable to wear, which is great. What I like about this is that it feels very autumnal, offering a brick red/orange undertone. I never in my wildest dreams thought this kind of lipstick would suit my paler, but somehow it works. What makes this easy? It fades rather than going patchy.

005: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in ‘Stoned Rose’ - another shade I didn’t think would suit my English rose skin, but how wrong I was. I was so glad to be wrong because this is one of my most used ‘everyday’ lipsticks. This is more on the darker side than some of the others but it’s a lovely warm, almost terracotta rose brown that somehow just works. Let’s all bow down to the Tilbury.
