I spent years searching for the right nude lipstick, which could magically transform my appearance in 30 seconds from a pale ghost into a lovable lady. I don't have time in the morning for extensive beauty routine (although could benefit from one), because just like anyone else, have to be at my workplace by a certain time.
There one ritual I always stick to-apply a lipstick. There is something magical in this small phallic symbol, transforming my dry lips into well-hydrated gates of wisdom and truth.
This review is not sponsored. First group of lipsticks are my absolute favorite in all categories: amazing color that compliments my skin, smells great, hydrates my lips, color lasts for 2-3 hours, the lipstick is visually pleases my senses.
My absolute favorite #1 Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection "Sure Thing".
The packaging has a tiny golden peach on front, with a logo beautifully written in gold. When you open a lipstick, you notice a divine peachy smell, good enough to eat the lipstick ha-ha! Just three easy swipes on the lips, and voila-lips are hydrated, smell peachy, have a beautiful mate peach color. In two hours lips are still hydrated, look and smell great! I am sold!
My favorite #2 is MAC Cremesheen collection "203-Creme Cup"
It has light texture that goes on very smooth, hydrating lips and visually plumping them up. I love the smell of MAC lipsticks- it promises a good day and it delivers! The color is very complimenting and it stays in place for some time without drying. Lips feel hydrated and plumped.
Favorite #3 is Charlotte Tilbury "Pillow Talk"
It probably shares the second place together with MAC in my heart, but I needed a structure.
The first thing- this shiny object can't go unnoticed. It looks so gorgeous, so expensive and it smells divine!
It actually is very expensive- $39 plus taxes. That is why third place in my hit parade.
Pillow talk has a great color that accentuates the lips, without being too much. It has smooth silky coverage, smells divine. Definitely a must for special occasions, when you want to feel million bucks version of yourself.
My second group of nude lipsticks that made the cut: NARS Bahama Lip Tint, NARS Bahama velvet matte lip pencil, Clinique Chubby Stick Intense A39.
The reason this is second group, as it is lacking presentation and smell. However I still use this group regularly, as it provides good color and hydration.
My favorite #1 Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel provides soft cushiony color, it is made with comforting oils and Vitamin E. It glides very smooth and the coverage depends on how much you apply: it can be sheer or a full coverage. It lasts a while, keeping my lips well-hydrated.
My favorite #2 is NARS, as it looks great! Hydration and nourishment are not great here, but at least the product doesn't dry lips either. Staying power is good. First I apply matte crayon and finish with shiny veil. Lips look amazing!
