Summer Nudes

Nude lipsticks lip gloss

As Summer is fast approaching I thought I’d gather together my current favourite nude lip products for Summer!  I’ve quite a few products, I did try and restrict myself to 10, but I’ve ended up grouping a few products that I either use together or interchangeable products.

Let’s start with the lip balm and lip gloss type products.  I have two Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque* in 08 (bottom left swatch) and 01 (next swatch up).  These are lovely on my lips, they leave them glossy and a bit hydrated.  Plus they’re easy to reapply.  The next swatches are the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector* in 01 and the No7 BB Lips in Blink Pink.  These are both hydrating and keep my lips soft throughout the day, again both are easy to reapply without a mirror. I’ve done a comparison post on these if you want more information.

The middle swatches are a few traditional style glosses.  The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL* in Pinkwell (bottom middle swatch), is super glossy although be warned it can be gloopy.  From Model Co I have an Shine Ultra Lip Gloss* in Fairy Floss, this is a great sheer gloss that adds just a nice touch of pink.  I’ve included the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner* in EastEnd Snob as an example, I like to grab a lip liner in the summer and pop a gloss over the top.  The top middle swatch is the Rimmel Oh My Gloss* in Snog.  I’m loving this at the minute, it does wonders for my lips and is just a joy to wear.  None of the glosses I’ve mentioned are sticky, so no hair getting stuck to your lips on a windy day!  The bottom right swatch is a cult favourites, the NYX Butter Gloss in Vanilla Cream Pie, it’s a creamy pink shade and adds a nice wash of colour, it’s great for muting more vibrant lips.  Another product from No7 is the High Shine Lip Crayon* in Delicate Pink.  It’s nice on the lips, it does have a wee bit of shimmer through it, so it’s handy to pop in my bag on evenings out.

Now onto more lipstick nudes.  I’ll start with two from mac, they’re both cremesheen in Fanfare (bottom left swatch) and Hot Gossip (left middle swatch).  These are both lovely on the lips and I wear these when I’ve something dramatic on my eyes but want something a bit more nude on my lips.  The top swatch is the Dior Addict Lipstick in 571 Windrose, this is an absolute favourite, it is quite sheer but it adds a lovely pink softness to my lips and it’s a joy to apply.

The last two products are lip crayons.  The first is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm* in Sultry, this is the darkest nude I’d wear and often I’ll pop a gloss over the top.  Lastly I have the Jordana Twist & Shine* in Honey Love, this is a “my lips but better” sort of colour, plus it’s moisturising on my lips.

So that’s it!  I hope you’ll forgive the length of this post, but there are so many great products I wanted to share!  You can check out the video below if you want a bit more about each product.  What nudes are you loving at the minute?  I’d love to know, not that I need an excuse to buy more makeup…
