EVERY DAY NUDE AND PINK LIPSTICKS


There is nothing more that I love than a good lipstick. I think a lipstick can make all the difference by changing your face from being flat to being vibrant and awake (which is what I need most mornings). To be honest with you most days I'm rushing out the door, so lipstick is always my saving grace so I don't look like a zombie in front of the world. 

I work full time in a corporate environment, so experimenting with wacky vibrant colours is generally a no no and I keep that for my days off.  I've come to realise that most of my lipstick collection now is filled with lovely nudes and darling pink and I wanted to share with you some of my favourite every day lipsticks. 


Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate (05) - I'm a big fan of Rimmel, I think it is one of the best drugstore affordable brands and the formula of their lipstick is fantastic. This lipstick lasts all day on the lips as the name would suggest and unlike most long lasting lipsticks this feels amazing on and is super moisturising. Plus, the colour is just too cute, it's the perfect medium tone pink that is leaning on the dusty rose side. If you look at it on my hand it's actually very similar to the YSL Rouge Pur Couture. Hello dupe!

Nars Roman Holiday - First and foremost let's take a moment to admire the name. All I can think about is the lovely Audrey Hepburn.   This colour is the perfect pink for my medium skin tones. I can never pull off a super pale pink because it always washes me out, but this is a perfect barbie pink for me. I normally pair this with a super smokey eye or with a cat eye. 

Face of Australia (Peaches & Cream) - This is the most adorable apricot colour. It's a perfect and wearable peach nude that looks great with a smokey eye. A must buy and super affordable for you Australian beauty lovers. Not only is it affordable, but the formula is fantastic, it feels like butter on the lips. 

Mac Cosmo - This is by far my favourite lipsticks of all time. I use this almost on a daily basis, once my lipstick choice of the day wears off I normally top up with Mac Cosmo. It's just so easy to wear, it's that whole your lips but better colour. I've always adored the Mac amplified lipstick formulas, they feel like heaven on the lips and are opaque central! 

Stila Color Balm Olivia - I love these lipsticks, I normally apply this with a brush because I feel this is what gives the product a better application vs. straight from the tube. I also adore the smell of these, it's exactly like peppermint and leaves a little tingle on the lips, but don't worry it doesn't plump your lips like a bee has stung them! 

YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE (09) - Let's all take a second to admire the beautiful YSL packaging, I can't get over how stunning high end cosmetics package their products and it's always what lures me into buying them. This is a perfect midtone pink and I think is a very closely matched by the Rimmel Lasting Colour in 05. 


Let me know what your every day must have lipsticks are!

  2. I love wearing nude lipsticks that are quite close to the natural colour of my lips as an everyday colour, although i do like to wear a bright lip now and then. I love the MAC and YSL ones!
