Kylie Jenner and her nude lips. She definitely brought back a trend that took the beauty world by storm. I myself have never been a fan of true nudes on me, because they simply don’t suit me, but I’ve definitely grown to love slightly darker neutral shades as of recently. I’m not sure if these can be even classified as nudes, but they’re my version of nude, so this is what I’m going to call them.

Essence ‘Natural Beauty’ Longlasting Lipstick: This one is my old favourite. I’ve repurchased it two times already and I feel like I’ll be repurchasing it until I die. It’s the perfect on-the-go shade with a slight pink undertone that seems to go great together with every single makeup look I wear. It has a permanent place in my handbag, not only because of its ‘my lips but better’ shade, but also because it’s extremely comfortable to wear due to its creaminess.
Milani ‘Nude’ Color Statement Lip Liner: Telling you that I’m obsessed with this product right now is probably an understatement. I’ve been wearing it ALL THE TIME during the past month. It’s just perfect and I’m so glad I have it in my possesion. I almost gave up on the search for the perfect nude lip liner, as I could never find the shade I was looking for. I hate how pretty much all of them are either full on pink or brown, but this one is right there in the middle. Love! So, we’ve established that the shade is awsome. How about the formula, you ask? It’s flippin’ amazing as well. It feels creamy but looks matte, so you get the best of both worlds – comfort and staying power.
NYX ‘Tack’ Color Lip Balm: I wasn’t sure about this one when I first got it (I won it in a giveaway), because it looked burgundy in the tube, but once I applied it on my lips, I knew that it was a keeper straight away. A lip balm consistency makes sure your lips are nice and moisturized during the cold months, while the pigmentation leaves you with a nice dark pop of neutral colour. You can apply one coat if you want it to look suble or layer it up for a stronger effect. I personally also love wearing it over the Milani lip liner. Match made in heaven!
