2015 has been an interesting year. I’ve started embracing new interests.
For example, I’ve stopped reading celebrity goss mags and I’ve started reading Better Homes & Gardens magazine! And I love it! Who am I??? My mother??
And I’ve stopped favouring bold ‘in-yer-face’ lippy colours and I have been embracing nudes! Who am?? J-Lo??
Anywayyyyzzzz, let me introduce you to this trio of nude lipsticks I have been wearing recently…
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Royal Orchid
This is a GORGEOUS (yes, CAPS are needed!) pink-toned nude. It just glides on beautifully and wears so well on my lips without it drying out. It’s cooler than the usual pinks I go for but I seriously love it. I’m not sure if you can tell in the photos but it’s well-worn by my pout 🙂 You can see it in action amongst other pinks in this video I filmed a few weeks ago.
Verdict : A tad expensive at $35 but it’s luxe and luscious so head to your nearest Laura Mercier counter NOW!
Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 01 Wearing A Smile
This is a peach-toned nude lippy which is really hard to pull off if you have yellow-toned skin like me. I can’t wear this lipstick on its own without looking like I’m seriously ill BUT it is awesome as a lipstick primer and make colours on top pop. For under $5, this range is definitely worth checking out!
Verdict : Not the best nude colour for Asians like me, but great as a lippy base. It’s less than $5 – BARGAIN!
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Notting Hill Nude
This brown-toned nude is a beauty! I didn’t even know I could pull off caramel lips until I tried this. Fantastic creamy formula too! In fact, I’ve been wearing the above mentioned Essence lippy as a base and applying this on top and it makes a lovely nude lip combo. This one is under $15 so another budget-friendly lippy!
Verdict : Get that caramel nude lips look at under $15! Sweet!
