5 Of My Favourite Nude Lips

1// NYX Liquid Suede in 07 + NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cairo
I don’t tend to wear either of these lipsticks on their own. 07 is a little too dark of a brown to suit my skin tone and Cairo is so light that my lips can look a bit dead. Together though, they’re a match made in heaven. They combine to make a super-matte 90s nude that suits my skin tone perfectly.

2 // Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill
This is a great affordable alternative to MAC ‘Kinda Sexy’. It’s a very peachy toned nude. The formula is super creamy, so it doesn’t leave your lips feeling at dry, although I find it doesn't tend to stay on as well as other formulas. 

2 // MAC Velvet Teddy
A classic, MAC ‘Velvet Teddy’ is a tried and tested favourite. The definitive 90s brown shade, this is more wearable than NYX Liquid Suede in 07 and tends to look good on most skin tones. MAC’s matte formulation lipsticks are some of my favourites. They have an amazing suede matte finish but are still really comfortable to wear.

3 // NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in London
This gives a fairly similar effect to Velvet Teddy but with more of a peach, rather than pink, undertone. I think this suits me slightly more, and again I find it really comfortable to wear. It is, however, probably less long lasting than the MAC formulation.

4 // MAC Honeylove
Honeylove is my go-to light nude. It still has the peachy undertones of Maybelline Nude Thrill and Mac Kinda Sexy but is a little less vibrant. I particularly like using this one if I’ve got a heavier eye look, as it’s slightly more subtle but has enough colour to avoid the foundation lips look.



  1. I really want to try some NYX products, I am still to try anything by that brand!
