I am moving house in a few months so decide to get knee deep amongst my grossly huge blogger hoard of makeup and skincare in the run up to moving. Apart from this being a surprisingly cleansing and calming exercise I also discovered I own a bazillion cleansers, 17 lip balms (all opened and used) 11 different toners and that I may have a slightly unhealthy addicted to buying nude lipsticks.
I usually find myself buying lipstick when I’m either in a really great mood (celebratory, high on life purchase) or when I’m in a not so great mood (cheer myself up, silver lining purchase). It turns out that I’ve been sourcing the same sort of colours and repurchasing again and again..oops.
Startwith the Bobbi Brown lipstick top right and moving round in a clockwork fashion:
Revlon – discontinued
Models Own in Nude
Topshop in Mink – discontinued
After throwing out quite a few old ones and some yellow based nudes that were not suited to my skintone I decided to keep these.
After much deliberation and swatching these are my favourite most worn nudes.
Elizabeth Arden in Pale Petal – my perfect wash out, nude 60’s style lipstick
Rimmel London Kate Moss Spring Collection in 19 – the perfect pretty but natural pink nude
Bobbi Brown in Brownie – my favourite brown-pink nude, totally natural and no too much yellow
What lipsticks shade do you own the most of? Do you prefer nudes in summer, winter or all year round?
