My Perfect Nude Lipstick and Glosses

These 4 beauties live in my handbag, they are the ones that I can apply and chop and change any time as they will pretty much suit any make up that I am wearing.

As much I love to experiment with bright colours on my lips, most of the time I tend to apply nude shades as they are just so easy to wear and work for both day and evening. However, I have to say these four are definitely my go to shades and the ones I wear the most often.

Yes To Carrots C Me Shine Lip Gloss in Playful Nude - £5.99

I absolutely love this nude gloss, it is thick and creamy in texture, smells of mint choc chip ice cream and makes my lips look full, glossy and luscious. It is 95% organic, paraben free and has ingredients such as jojoba and shea butter to keep lips moisturised.

I like to wear this alone or on top of the No7 Lipstick shown in the picture above - Nude Rebel.

Flawless You Forever Couture Pout Mineral Lip Gloss in Adelina - $18

This is just gorgeous, the applicator is a long stick with a foam wand and the gloss is non sticky and applies evenly. It is sheer and has reflective tints which really do make my lips look fuller for that 'A' list pout. It has a beautiful gold shimmer that is incredibly flattering on the lips and I often get asked what I am wearing when I have this on.

Lord & Berry 20100 Shining Lipstick in Intimacy - £8

I am a great fan of the Lord & Berry Shining Lipsticks, which are really giant pencils. They are so soft to apply and well pigmented that you only need one application to achieve full coverage. Intimacy is one of my darker nude shades and leans to being pinky/brown in tone, which you can see in this FOTD post.

No7 Soft Matte Finish Lipstick in Nude Rebel - £9.75 (limited edition)

My all time favourite nude lipstick, it feels lovely on the lips and has a very soft sheen to it. Sadly it is limited edition from back in 2010 so very soon I will be hunting for a dupe!

Swatches of all four nudes in the order they are listed.
