Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

Nude lipsticks are honestly pretty much the only lipsticks I buy. As I've gotten slightly older I've become more certain of my tastes in makeup and fashion, and try to only buy the things which I know I'll wear a lot of. I still have lots of pinks, bright reds and purples from my days of experimentation, so if there ever was a need for a particular colour I can pretty much guarantee I've got it, making it a lot easier to only buy the colours that I wear on an everyday basis. With that said, I've become pretty good at picking out a nude lipstick which will work on my fair skin in to time at all, so today I thought I'd share with you my favourite four. 

MAC Peach Blossom - Peach Blossom is my all time favourite lipstick, and it's the one I wear almost everyday for work and at the weekends, which is why there's so little left. It's a beautiful creamy peachy/pink nude which complements my skin beautifully, and makes my lips look that little bit plumper. I could honestly rave about how great this lipstick is for days, and I tell all of my friends to go out and buy it whenever we're near a MAC counter. Honestly, if you buy one thing this month, make it this lipstick. 

MAC Without Your Love - Unfortunately 'Without Your Love' was a limited edition lipstick so I umm-ed and ahh-ed about including this, but it's such a pretty colour I couldn't leave it out. Without Your Love is a beautiful peachy-pink nude which works so well with my fair skin tone and love for pink blush. It's slightly lighter and more pink-toned that peach blossom so if you found that a little too peachy then this may be the one for you. Although this was limited edition, I know some MAC counters do still have it in stock (particularly the ones in Duty Free stores) and if not, I'm sure you can find it on blog sales or eBay/depop - just be careful it's not fake. 

YSL Nude Beige - Nude Beige was my first YSL lipstick and I can already tell it won't be the last. The formula is ultra moisturising and creamy, and the colour is so opaque, which I wouldn't necessarily expect from something so moisturising and shiny. The shade is a little more warm-toned than the rest of the nudes so can sometimes be a little hard to pull off, but when I've gone ultra simple on my eyes and blush, this is the perfect nude for the occasion. 

Clinique Sugar Pop - Sugar Pop is the latest addition to my lipstick collection, and a very welcome one at that. Edging more towards the 'Kylie Jenner Nude', Sugar Pop is slightly darker and more mauve toned than the others and works excellently with my fair skin. I often find that the more mauve-toned nudes don't work so well with my skin, but the lightness of sugar pop works so well. This is definitely more of an autumn-winter nude for myself, as I like to go lighter for the summer, but it's definitely one to watch. 

What are your favourite nude shades? I'm always looking to add more to my collection!

Lots of Love,
