The Best Nude Lip Products : The Perfect Everyday Lip Color

The Best Nude Lip Products : The Perfect Everyday Lip Color

If you were to visit my lipstick collection right now you would think I have a problem. I’m (almost) embarrassed. When it comes to lipsticks, I am a bit of a hoarder. The amount of lip colors I have in my makeup collection is ridiculous. I do have a vast variety of lip colors but the majority, I’m talking a solid 75%, are nude lip products. Take one look at my Instagram and you know I LOVE a nude lip.

Nude Lip Gloss and Lipstick

If you’re a true lipstick connoisseur, as I fancy myself, you know that every nude lip product is special in its way. Matte, shiny, lipsticks pencils, glosses, creams – the possibilities are endless when it comes to shades and finishes!

I love a bold, bright lip now and then but my favorite for every day are different shades of the perfect nude. My favorite part about a nude lip color is its the perfect lip color for every day of the year.

My goal when applying my everyday lipstick is I want my lips to look natural but better. In my opinion, the perfect nude lip color is a heavy brown undertone with a splash of pink. So today, I am sharing my top nude lip products. In this list of favorites, there is a variety of colors and consistencies but they are all wonderful in their way.

Lip products are one of the few makeup items that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a quality product. My lipstick collection is a solid mix of drugstore and high end. But every morning when I am searching for the perfect color I constantly find myself grabbing a NYX product or lately its been a Maybelline lip color.

  Let’s get started with the best nude lip products.

Pro-tip: I never, ever put lipstick on my lips without first lining and filling in my entire lip with a nice lip liner. This is so important to note because these shades that I recommend will look so much different without the lip liner base.

Shiny

Cream

Gloss

No matter where I am shopping at; Nordstrom, TJ MAXX, Target, you name it, I always gravitate towards the makeup section to try and find a new lip product I haven’t yet discovered. I am a bit obsessed! I try hard to talk myself out of buying a new nude lip color but somehow I always manage to find a way to justify it.  “Well, this one is a little more brown than peach.”  I know, I know, I sound like a crazy person.

What does your everyday lip color collection look like? Let me know if the comments below!

Now that Christmas is right around the corner its the perfect time to update your makeup and start getting ready for holiday parties!!!  What better way to update your makeup than with a perfect red lipstick. I freaking love a bold lip!!! There is something so classy about a clean face with a pop of a bright red lip.

Why do I love bold lips? These shades draw attention to your face, make your teeth look whiter and make your makeup look polished.  Give any of these reds a chance and I swear, it will make you a believer in lipstick.

The best thing about lipstick is some of the very best out there come at a price point under $10. Score! I previously posted about the perfect nude lip but now its time to talk all about RED!

Monday Morning Obsessions: The Perfect Summer Nude Lip

Monday Morning Obsessions: The Perfect Summer Nude Lip

I love lipstick. Actually, I love all lip products; matte lipstick, natural lipstick, lipgloss, nude lipstick, glitter lipstick, bold lipstick, you name it and I love it. To be completely honest, I am a bit embarrassed by my lipstick collection, it’s excessive.

My favorite girl, Rhinanna, once said this about her favorite beauty product, “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid–they won’t notice when you’re not.”

Nude Summer Lipstick Products

Let me tell you that quote has stuck by me because boy do I believe it. Lipstick can take a mascara only day into a fully polished look. I love all lipstick looks but this summer I have my favorite everyday, nude lip look. This look is created by three tried and true products that once they are layered together make a long lasting, high shine nude lip.

To achieve this look I start with NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in the color whipped caviar, I line my lips with this liner then I fill in my lips completely with this lip liner. Once that is done I take NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick and layer that on top of my already lined lips. Once that is on I wait a complete minute to allow that to dry on my lips, this minute of waiting is super important for long lasting lips. Once the product is dry I then apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in the color Vintage over my lips. This product is amazing, it’s like nothing I’ve ever used. Its super high shine and long-lasting. $16 for a lip gloss might seem a bit crazy, but it’s SO WORTH IT!

My skin tone is pretty light, even in summer, but this color trio looks great on a variety of skin tones from fair to deep skin tones.

This is my everyday look but when it comes to a night out or a more high glam opportunity I live for a bold lip, I can’t wait to write about my favorite bold lip products. I HAVE A LOT OF FAVORITES! What are your favorite lip products? I am always looking to expand my ridiculous collection!

Happy Monday!
