5 Comfortable Nudes

During the Summer months a matte bright lip is my worst nightmare. Because I tend to wear more of a BB Cream rather than a foundation, harsh and intense lipsticks can look very weird, so instead I like to wear something comfortable, sheer yet still with some pigment. So here's a quick rundown on a couple of pretty comfortable nudes to wear in the Summer time. 

L'Oreal Paris Privee Color Riche Lipstick in J-Lo's Nude  I'm a big fan of the L'Oreal Color Riche collections, they are so hydrating, comfortable and the staying power is pretty incredible. I definitely think these not only look but feel luxurious for a drugstore lipstick.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution 'Pillow Talk'  is a lipstick I'm pretty sure you're all sick of hearing about - I have a full review here  so I won't harp on too much. Now I know I said that I hate matte formulas during the Summer, but this is far from matte in my opinion. It's incredibly creamy and makes my lips look fuller and a better version of themselves.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G 'Bitch Perfect' - Another lipstick that I never stop talking about on this blog - full review here. Much sheerer in formula than Pillow Talk, Bitch Perfect is a beautiful classic peach shade perfect when you have a bit more of a tan and to pair with a bronze/glowey makeup look. 

Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color 'Naked'  - Now my sincere apologies for the horrific swatch here but there's a very good reason. I don't own a lot of lip pencils so sharpening them is a little frustrating. I purchased a sharpener specifically for this lip pencil but I can't find it anywhere and it's such a specific size lip pencil, I can't just use any - how annoying. Lip pencils aren't a product I tend to pick up but I don't know why could be the sharpener debacle. If I need a quick lipstick fix during the day/have forgotten my lipstick this is perfect for a shimmery gloss/like lip colour. I adore the colour, it's shiny and although the wear time isn't the longest, you get a lot of product in a lip pencil so you don't feel so bad re-applying. 

Lastly is the beautiful Clinique Pop Lipstick 'Nude Pop' - mine is still only a mini (I gave my full sized one away) but this product lives in my on-the-go makeup bag. If someone decides on a spontaneous after works drink, or I've forgotten my lipstick to touch up on the day, I know that I can always rely on this to save the day. It's very hydrating, smooth to apply and is so glossy and vibrant that it gives you an effortless look. 

Let me know in the comments below what some of your favourite comfortable wearing lipsticks are!

  13. I have a couple Revlon ones (a lip butter and another generic) I always forget to wear lippy! I also hate pencils that you have to sharpen, I always look for the twister ones, they're handy.
