The hunt for a good nude lipstick can take a lifetime. Sure, we might find one we love but there is always a better one just around the corner. From the 80’s frosted nudes to the brown nudes in the nineties to Kylie’s Jenner’s famous nude lip kits, the nude lip is ever changing and a look that virtually every woman can pull off. I have a whole collection of nude lipsticks that I swear are all different…errr I have a problem I know.
My go-to nude shades for the past year have all been from Tarte as I won the whole Rainforest of the Sea lipstick collection and each time I look through the box I find a new favourite. Seeing as every women has a nude lipstick in her collection I thought it would be fun to put together a post on my favourites!
Here’s some of my favourite nudes in current rotation.
Pink Lemonade. This is a milky apricot shade and pairs perfectly with a heavy eye makeup look. I like wearing this shade at night as I find it slightly too light for the daytime.
Rum Punch. This is probably the most used lipstick of the bunch and the one I always rely on without fail. It’s a beautiful berry/brown based nude and adds just the right colour to my lips. It also makes my lips look plump which I love.
Salt Lyfe. This is on par with Rum Punch and I always find myself reaching for it. It’s quite similar to Rum Punch but is less berry toned. It gives the perfect nude lipstick look and because it is a similar shade to my lip colour it looks really natural on. I will most likely repurchase this one as it’s just so versatile.
Siesta. This shade is similar to Salt Lyfe but is a touch more brown based. It’s a great lipstick for everyday, especially for work and always makes me look polished.
Beach Waves. A new favourite of mine which I have been wearing non stop recently. Beach Waves is a beautiful creamy cocoa colour and gives the ultimate 90’s girl vibe. It’s a shade that is out of my comfort zone as I tend to stick to softer, lighter shades but I am really enjoying wearing it.
