Ya’ll crazy if you thought i meant actual nudes. Last week i was reading Jenny’s Blog on some of her favorite nude lipsticks and I had so many suggestions for her, I decided to make a post myself. Just like my choice in nail colors, I will always and forever gravitate towards nude and mauvy colors. Its simple, timeless, classic, and you will always look so put together when you have that shit on. I am one of those girls who foreal will buy the same shade in different brands because…i NEEEEEEEED it. My husband thinks it’s annoying. LOL. It was hard narrowing down my Top 5 but by golly, I think I’ve done it. I’ll also share some dupes for yall as well!
Pander Me by MAC Cosmetics $17.00
A matte finish with warm and peachy undertones. Unfortunately this was a LIMITED edition so MAC no longer carries it. Something similar to this is ‘Velvet Teddy’ by MAC cosmetics. Another alternative is ‘Polite Society’ LippieStix by ColourPop $5.00. This is my absolute favorite, i fear the day that i run out.
Bedtime Flirt Lip Lingerie by NYX Cosmetics $7.00
Upon application it is very creamy and it does dry matte. Its a mauve color with a red undertone. A lot of people have mixed feelings with this line, but i have no complaints. I love their formula. This is actually a dupe to the color and lipkit ‘Candy K’ by Kylie Jenner which retails for $29.00. Everytime i put this on, I always feel like, Kylie Who?
Creme in your Coffee by MAC Cosmetics $17.00
I don’t really know how to describe this color. It’s like, a pink, brown, coffee color? LOL. It’s a cream sheen finish which means it adds a soft shine and its softer on your lips upon application. It’s not drying either so its really nice for everyday wear. I’m not gonna lie tho, you will have to reapply this a few times throughout the day, especially after eating or drinking. A perfect dupe for this is ‘Cami’ MatteX LippieStix by ColourPop $5.00
Pure Hollywood Liquid Lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills $20.00
A dusty, rosey, mauve color. Yeah, I think that’s what i can say to best describe this beauty. This shit will last FOR-EV-ER. I am not bullshitting you when i say forever also. Dinner? No problem. Going out drinking? ABH has got you covered. You sweated your makeup off during sex? But you lipstick is still poppin! Her formula has passed the tests of time! A great dupe for this is ‘Lace Detail’ Lip Lingerie by NYX cosmetics $7.00
Corset Lip Lingerie by NYX Costmetics $7.00
A Nude toffee color that dries matte. I like wearing this when I’m feeling a little dark, but not too dark cuz its still only 10am and i got errands to do. LOL
