THINGS I LIKE #001 | Pinky Nude LipsticksMonday, January 25, 2016
It's time to introduce something a bit new to the CM post roster (it is the New Year and all that...) I'm calling it 'Things I Like'; I know, it's not a very original name, but I want to keep it broad and open so I can share whatever I might be liking at that particular moment in time. For number one in the series I wanna talk about nude lipsticks, specifically the pinky nude kind - they're my go-to on a daily basis and I always gravitate towards them. So here are a few lipsticks I like.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita*
This beautiful liquid lipstick is a very recent addition to my makeup collection as I chose it as part of my Sephora NZ collaboration (read the haul here). The first moment I swatched it and then put it on my lips I knew I was going to be a huge fan of it. The formula is so on point for a matte liquid lipstick - it isn't drying, or flaky like others, instead it almost feels like you haven't got it on. The colour is on the deeper side of nude, and a bit more red in the undertone. It's gorgeous though and I can see it suiting so many different skin tones.
Chi Chi Viva La Diva Matte Lipstick in Sex Bomb
It took me far too long to jump onto the Chi Chi Lipstick bandwagon and I'm glad Sex Bomb was my first choice. This is an amazing nude lipstick, and the matte finish is non-drying but still long lasting. The colour I absolutely adore and I find it really flattering on my skin tone.
M.A.C Satin Lipstick in Faux
This is my most recent M.A.C lipstick purchase and a welcomed addition to my lipstick family. I haven't heard anything about Faux before and I'm surprised more people don't talk about it - I mean look at that gorgeous shade! I really like the satin finishes from M,A,C, as they wear a bit longer, but still have a slight sheen to them so they aren't at all drying. This lipstick nails the pinky-nude lip thing I like.
L'Oreal Color Riche Matte Lipstick in 640 Erotique*
Erotique definitely gravitates towards the more pink side of things but it does have that slight nude/brown undertone to it. This dries to a satin/matte finish on the lips and I love the opacity you get with just one swipe. If you prefer more pink tones, I'd check this shade out.
What pinky-nude lipsticks do you like? Are there any from my selection you want to try?
