A good natural lip shade should be a staple in any woman’s arsenal – sometimes referred to as the MLBB (my lips but better) shade; every person’s idea of the perfect natural shade is different as lip tones vary greatly across the board. I quite like a rosy tone in my natural lip shades as I think that flatters a pale face, but I don’t mind a shot of peach to warm things up either. Here are the 5 newly released naturally nude lip products I’ve recently brought into my collection!
My lip product loyalty doesn't always lie with the luxury brands, I fall in love just as frequently with drugstore product and this natural nude lip line-up is no different. From essence to Chanel, a nice nude lip product is a good thing to keep in your handbag for easy touch ups throughout the day and I often have at least one of these in mine these days. Revlon Lacquer Balm in Ingenue remains the only balm I've bought from the recently released Lacquer Balm + Matte Balm line, and I love that it's a nice shiny finish with the same minty feel that the original balms have.
The Maybelline Colour Elixir in Caramel Infused is something I posted about here, and I've been loving the glossy finish and how well the pink toned nude goes if I am wearing a bronze eye look. I find the essence Metal Glam gloss in 03 Glam-Me is a touch too frosty if you over apply, but it's gorgeous to dab on the centre of your lip to liven up a nude lip or to create some dimension.
Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Cheri had to be included in this list - it's my first shade in the classic formula and the peachy nude shade is seriously beautiful. I definitely didn't begrudge the high price tag as soon as this hit my lips, being pale makes it hard to find flattering nudes but this one is just stunning. I've also seen it look amazing on darker skin tones than mine (Tiffany, holla!)
Last but not least is Maybelline's Tantalizing Taupe from the newly released Colorsensational Nudes collection - the white lace edged design of the display suckered me right in! This is the lip shade I've used the least but for it's definitely the most wearable of all of the nudes they've released - some of them are coffee toned which is great if you are going for Kylie Jenner lips!
