Top 5 All-Time Favorite Nude Lipsticks

Today we are talking all about nudes – shades of lipstick that is!

I don’t think I can leave the house without putting on one of these. I love how it transforms any dull look into looking like you actually took some time to do your makeup.

I’ll be honest though, I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup for work. Mainly because it’s not worth it, but also because I like giving my skin a chance to breath. I say that “it’s not worth it” because who are we really trying to impress at work? Really, I don’t understand office politics, so I like to be a rebel and not wear makeup because I am beautiful with or without it. 🙂

Although I don’t wear makeup, I do make sure I put on one of these lipsticks to give me some color to my face. It also looks very natural and down-to-earth. Nudes are my favorite shades because it’s so easy to wear everyday.

Too bad we can’t all be Rihanna and wear crazy lipsticks all the time. Wait, actually, no that goes against everything I believe. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU PLEASE. Do whatever makes your little heart happy and makes you feel the most confident. Taking care of yourself and making sure you look your best everyday is part of a self-love and self-care routine. When you look your best, you feel the most confident and can accomplish so much more. That saying “Fake it ‘till you make it” usually works when you feel and look your best; which the meaning can differ for everyone!

Okay, I’ll stop rambling. Here are my top 5 nudes with swatches:

1. Faux – MAC


This is such a nice mauve tone and looks amazing on a lot of skin tones. I wear this one when I’m running late, and know I can depend on it looking good no matter what. This is my ride or die lipstick. If you think MAC lipsticks are a bit expensive, I would say that they are worth it because they last forever and are such great quality.

2) Cherish – MAC


I go back and forth with this one and Faux. They’re both my constant go-to everyday lipsticks. They just never fail me. They’re both such beautiful colors. I love this one because it’s a little more wearable than a mauve tone. It’s not too nude, just the perfect shade for everyday wear. No matter what type of eye makeup I’m wearing or not wearing, it looks great. It’s a nice neutral nude.

3) Raquel – Nars


I love the formula in this. It’s applies so smoothly and is very moisturizing. This collection is so amazing, you can’t go wrong with any shades from Nars, but this one in particular is such a unique color and a great nude. It has a more of an orange undertone, but it’s beautiful. I wear this when I want to spice up my nude lip look.

4) Lip Tensity Driftwood – MAC


This one’s another nice mauve color. I like how this one feels and is a bit more moisturizing. This is a newer one from their collection. I think it came out this past winter. It’s more of a darker mauve than Faux – which gives you a different variety.

5) Naked 2 – Urban Decay


This is a nudey-nude. What I mean by that is that this is a pale nude. Looks great for when you have smokey eyes or wearing heavier makeup on your eyes. This one’s also very moisturizing which is a plus.

Okay that is all. This was pretty hard to only choose only 5, but at the end of the day, these are the 5 I wear the most often. I didn’t list my current favorite, which is the MUFE I mentioned in my previous post, which you can check out here.

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone has a nice weekend. Don’t forget to come back Sunday for Self-Care Series # 2!
