Swatches: Nude Lip Lipsticks (Illamasqua, MAC, Make Up For Ever)
Anyway, now that THAT'S out of the way!
Retails: $19 on Sephora.com
This is a newly acquired item for me. I saw so many swatches on other blogs and it looked gorgeous! It's a satin color, which means it's got a little bit a sheen to it. In swatches and photographs, it does look like it's got a sheen, but on my lips in real life, it looks a little more dry. However, this can be easily fixed by applying a gloss over.
Retails: $22 on Sephora.com
I've also already bought and returned this item. I hated the color (too orange for me) and I wasn't crazy about the consistency either. I had these swatched on my hand (like in the picture in this post) and after a few minutes, the color started to separate... Hmm. For $22, I would expect way better! So I returned this and in the future would rather buy from MUFE or MAC and save a few bucks!
Retails: $14.50 on MACcosmetics.com
My all time favorite nude lip lipstick is MAC's Myth. It's a little pinkier for me and that helps to make me look more alive. Lol! I love to pair it with a pink tinted gloss over top as well, to brighten it up! MAC obviously has great lip products and I feel like they're sold at a reasonable price.
Do you wear nude lips? I'd love to know some other lipstick recommendations! :)
