The nude lips // one for every occasion + video!


Nude lips are something that I have started to appreciate more with the years. I guess it shows some level of class and elegance to be able to rock a look with nude lips. Somehow it's the simplest and it looks effortless, but to be honest I think it's quite a task to find the perfect nude to suit you. I have a couple of shades in my possession and I'm showing them off to you in this post + video!



My favourite true nude must be MAC Honeylove. It's a matte, which I think makes the whole look very classy and clean. The shade is not too light and could mostly be described as beige with a tiny tone of rose. I like to wear it when I'm dressed all black, because then it brings out the beige tones in my hair and complexion.

For a little bit more of the pink nude, I go for my Clinique Pop lipstick in the shade Beige Pop. I love to use the Clinique Pop lipsticks because they are both a primer and a lip colour. The substance is very long lasting and feels really good and smooth on your lips. It's so comfortable because they really also have a moisturizing function. This shade is really a winner, it's so girly with the pink touch yet really elegant because of the matte-ish structure.



The one I got from The Body Shop is less of an elegant one and more of a young and girly, shimmering hint of nude that I wear to just leave the house for a moment or as a touch up on a Summer day with barely any make-up. What I love about The Body Shop is how cute their products smell; such a plus!

The most daring one in this list must be my limited edition MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga nude. I have to admit I've never worn it like that to leave the house. I have mixed it with other nudes or pinks to create something different, but if I would wear it just like it is I think I wouldn't really feel comfortable. It's a very daring shade because it's super light and doesn't have any hint of pink, rose or true brown in it. It looks great for pictures though, for real.

More of a brown than a nude, but my favourite neutral of all times: MAC Spirit. It's really my holy grail: it looks good with everything and just suits my skintone, hair colour and other features so well. As it's my favourite finish, the satin, I feel like it's really an everyday shade that just gives you that extra 'bohemian babe'-touch on the lips.


Because I think written reviews are sometimes not enough, especially not with a tricky product like lipstick, I decided to make a video for you in which I apply all of these featured nudes. Hit the subscribe button on my YouTube channel because there will be many more videos coming!
