My Favourite Nudes.

Up until recently I had one lipstick that I was pretty much in a committed relationship with. My love of makeup pretty much disappeared after having a baby. I just didn't have the time or the money to keep it up. Lately I have discovered it again, I've started putting more time and energy into my routine and thus my nude collection has grown.

A good nude is all a girl really needs. That one colour that perfectly matches your skin tone and requires minimal effort. A product you can always rely on, the one nude that lives in your handbag and is perfect for all occasions. I would to know what your favourite nude product is, here are mine.

Jeffree Star Mini Velour Liquid Lipstick Nudes

This collection is filled with eight amazing miniature little nude lipsticks, each one a slightly different tone. Meaning there is something for everyone and every occasion. 

You can buy this mini collection on Beauty Bay (UK) but you can also buy the individual colours. I've always loved the Jeffree Star lip products as they apply withe such ease and very little is needed to get a full coverage. The pigmentation is impeccable and I don't think I need to mention the amount of colours available. Literally something for everyone/occasion.  My favourites are: 

Posh Spice: A muted grey toned nude that is great when you're looking to add something a little different but not too out there.

Rose Matter: I have this as an individual full sized lip product as it's so lovely. A pink toned nude that is fabulous for in the spring and summer months. Adding a slight pop of colour to your nude.

Androgyny: My love for this shade is too much. A dark red/purple toned nude that is perfect for nights out, date night and special occasions. It's gorgeous with all skin tones and the ideal nude to have in your collection.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Puker Lipstick

This lipstick was the one product that stayed with me during pregnancy and the newborn stage. I never have to over think this product. The colour is perfect for my skin tone, it applies impeccably and it's my perfect bit of makeup heaven.

I've always loved Soap and Glory Makeup, I think It's overlooked but really amazing quality.

My go-to shade is 5th Avenude, a standard nude colour with a slight hint of pink tones.

Other fabulous colours available are:

Love & Obeige: A nude shade with warm brown tones. Fabulous for an extra oomph to your nude shade. Great for special events and night outs.

Sleek Matte Me

I have always been obsessed with the Matte Me collection by sleek. Not only is it really good value for money but the colour is perfect. My Go-To for Spring/Summer.

My favourite shade from the range is Birthday Suit, the perfect mix between subtle nude and soft blush pink. It stays on for hours on end and doesn't do that weird rubbing off thing in the middle of your lips. The only issue I have is that the wand is a weird long rectangle shape making it a little difficult to apply.

Other shades from the range:

Shabby Chic: A nude with warm purple tones, a good dupe for Jeffree Star Androgyny.

That's So Fetch: A dark red toned nude.

NYX Lingerie

NYX Lingerie is a great nude product that lasted with me all through University. It's perfect for when you're in a rush and wanting to just get something on quick before you go.

The range is full of loads of different shades with something for all skin tones. I really love 'Lace Detail' It's again a silky nude shade that is easy to apply and the pigmentation is full.

Other shades:

Seduction: A dark orange toned nude that is great for those with a paler complexion and would be amazing for the autumnal months.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet

This is a very new edition to my makeup bag and has been something I wear pretty much every day. Although it comes in a smaller applicator, it is the perfect handbag nude. Bourjois Rouge Edition in number 07 has quickly become a favourite product of mine and I am planning on purchasing a lot more shades.

It is so smooth, I find it to be the product that lasts the longest on my lips without reapplication. The shade is stunning and would be paired well with a lot of different skin tones.

So what's your favourite nude?
