A Perfect Nude

Ahem, no I don't mean the perfect nude pic. It was probably only me who thought of that when coming up with the title (it took hours... ). Okay so I've probably said this a million times but I am more of a nude lipstick girl than any other shade. This means that I am very fussy about which nude lipsticks I wear, also because I don't like to have too many lipsticks so I actually only have a few. The lipstick I'm currently obsessed with is the Maybelline Coloursens Nude Lipstick in 'Tantalizing Taupe', which I saw Barbara wearing in a video + I decided I needed it A$AP. I got it on a 3 for 2 deal at Boots - I needed/wanted a dark purple lipstick for Halloween so it was the perfect opportunity to pick this up along with my favorite under eye concealer which will be featured in the next post (although I'm sure y'all can guess if it's Maybelline...).

To be honest, when I first looked at the lipstick in Boots I thought it wouldn't look that great on because I had thought it was a pinky nude but in the tube it looked kind of brown. However, when you put it on it is the perfect pale brown nude with pink tones. I know that sounds almost as ridiculous as 'oh my god this is the perfect reddy coral nude with berry undertones but it is also the perfect dusty pink' but it is the only way I can describe it. In terms of the texture + finish, it is very comfortable to wear + it's neither too glossy nor too matte. I think the lasting power isn't too shabby either but I do wear it with a lip liner. I just love that it is quite pale but not so pale that it looks like concealer lips, because I often find nude lipsticks to look a bit dark on me because I'm pretty pale. Obsessed.

  1. This is beautiful on you! I actually think Maybelline do some really nice lipsticks although I always feel in the minority when I state this, they're not often spoken about. By the way your make up in this picture is gorgeous.

  2. This looks lovely! It's so hard to find a good nude lipstick that doesn't make me look dead since I'm so pale, so I'll have to try this one!

  3. This is such a stunning colour. I find it so hard to find a flattering nude, so I'll have to keep my eye out for this.

  4. Oh this looks gorgeous! Really flattered as I find true nudes often leave people looking washed out.
    My favourite nude is currently Kate Moss by Rimmel in 03.

  5. What a gorgeous shade, it looks so beautiful on you! We've got a similar skintone so I'll have to check this out next time I pop into Boots.

  6. I love this range of lipstick but I've always overlooked this shade because I never think it would look good on a pale skin tone - you've just proved me totally wrong so I'll have to have a closer look soon! xx

  7. Barbara is always the enabler, haha! This looks so amazing on you and can I just take a minute to admire and stare into your eyes because they are bloomin' gorg... Okay, done. x

  8. This shade looks beautiful on you! I have yet to find a nude that suits me but I'm on the hunt and will have to take a look at this one. xx

  9. It looks gorgeous on you! I really think the brown tones flatter you. We have this range, but I don't think any of the nudes really suit me. I have been getting a bit more into nuder lips though!
