Back again with some more of my favorite nudes!
NYX is a very well known affordable brand, and they always deliver with their lip products. They were one of the first brands to make a liquid lipstick formula! Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade London, $5.99, is one of my all time faves. This formula was their first take on a liquid lipstick and it is very lightweight. It may not be the longest lasting lipstick but it is very comfortable to wear. There is also a matching Suede Matte Lip Liner in the shade London, $3.99, that is very creamy and goes on smoothly. This liner formula is different from the original NYX Slim Lip Pencils, like Peekaboo Neutral which I featured in my last blog. I think their Slim Lip Pencils, $3.49, are similar in formula to MAC Lip Pencils, $17.50. For this suede formula, don’t think MAC, think creamy like Colourpop or a Kylie Lip Kit. Speaking of Kylie Lip Kits, London is a very impressive dupe for her Lip Kit in the shade Exposed, $29. It’s the unique orange undertones in this nude that makes it special. It does not have any pink in the shade, it is a pure beige with an orange undertone and will look fabulous on warm toned complexions. NYX usually has some kind of BOGO sale at Ulta, so definitely check it out!

Continuing on the NYX trend, NYX released a line of only nudes in a liquid lipstick formula. NYX Lip Lingerie, $6.99, is another great lip product and is just slightly thicker and longer lasting than their Soft Matte Lip Creams, $5.99. I own the shade Bedtime Flirt which is a beautiful light pink nude. It is the prettiest pink nude I’ve ever seen and looks very feminine without pulling too pink on my skin. If you are looking for a pink nude that is easy to wear and not “too pink” than definitely try this out! I don’t own any other shades from this collection but I have heard great things about most of them. Stay clear of the three lightest shades: Lace Detail, Baby Doll, and Satin Ribbon. They are patchy and settle into lines in your lips that you didn’t even know you had. I really want to try Exotic, Embelishment and Teddy. I bought my friend Push Up and she loves it!

This last nude is more of a nude enhancer. You may have seen the sparkling images on Instagram of the Skinny Dip Lip Topper, $16, from Jouer. When I saw the swatch of this Lip Topper I was amazed. I ordered it within minutes, knowing I couldn’t live without seeing this gorgeous lip product in person. It is a shimmering, glistening, radiant golden champagne. Think of the most beautiful highlighter with a little more glitter, for your lips. I wear it on top of liquid lipsticks and lip liners. This formula is not quite a lip gloss and was created as a topper for matte liquid lipsticks. It feels like a soft cream that isn’t sticky at all and contains coconut oil which is super hydrating for the lips. This shade is too light and metallic to really wear on its own so make sure to put something underneath it and focus it mainly on the center of the lips for a plump effect. Whenever I wear this I feel like I’m laying out on a tropical island, sipping a Mai Tai. It’s luxurious.
