    What is your favourite nude lipstick?

    As discussed in the MAC x Mariah Carey thread, everyone tell me your favourite nude. I have two favourites... Pillow Talk (of course) and Oxblood.

    It could be any brand and also any shade of... well... nude.

    Plus, what do you guys think of the nudes released in that collection?

    Urban Decay Strip and MAC Creme Cerise have been long time faves. Too many pretty nudes out there to count lol
    Bite Beauty has many nice nudes.

    Those Mariah lipsticks are just a lot of too-light pinks to me lol
    I prefer rosy/brown/peachy/beige nudes

    Louboutin Zoulou matte
    Louboutin Just Nothing
    Louboutin Me Nude
    Tom Ford Coco Ravish
    Estee Lauder x VB Brazilian Nude (formula is OK but that shade!)
    MAC Touch
    MAC Among the Fireflies
    Marc Jacobs J'Adore
    YSL Beige Promenade
    Chanel Beige Felin
    Chanel Icone

    Chanel Deauville (very subtle, not a favourite formula though)


    The one that takes a little work:
    MAC Cherish with Rimmel Tiramisu liner

    Can taupes be nude?

    Eta
    MAC Stone
    Marc Jacobs Mahogany

    Lots of trial and error with my pigmented lips to find non-ashy nudes :/

    Nudes I like: MAC Tumble Dry, RiRi Nude, Hot Chocolate, dazzleglass (?) You've Got it, EL Covetous Nude, Milani Liquid lip in Adorable, JS liquid lip in Celebrity Skin, KvD ELLL in Bow n Arrow. This is what I can remember off the top of my head. I go for one of these when I want nude lips almost every time. WAIT - I want to add Pillow Talk and Styled in Sepia by MAC!

    I love RiRi Nude, think I may need to wear it tomorrow. Haven't got SiS, heard so much about it though.

    SiS is pretty - I don't wear it enough. If you got the greige-colored creemsheen from the holiday collection the year prior you have something pretty close. SiS looks a lot like that but matte.

    A lot of WOC rec Fresh Brew, but I guess when I tried it I did something wrong (this was years ago), because it seems the kind of nude I would be attracted to. What liner do you use with it?

    I always seem to overlook Fresh Brew, don't know if it's because it's a lustre (?) and the love/hate relationship I have with them or I haven't seen a decent swatch of it.

    I've used it with Cork, NYX Chestnut, Colourpop BFF and a lip liner by Presitige that I can't for the life of me remember the number. Maybe you could try it again with a different liner?

    I can swatch it for you tomorrow. I like Lustres; they're nice when you want just a smidge of color but of course the wear time is pretty short compared to other finishes.

    Please do, I'm in need of a subtle nude. I do now like lustres, depending on the shade and how delicate they can make your look.

    The fact that Freshbrew is a lustre finish is why I never repurchased after finishing it years ago.

    I still haven't found my perfect nude. I use Milani's Color Statement in Teddy Bare and the Milani lip gloss in Bare Secret. Both are nice but I feel there's something better out there.

    I recently saw a YouTube video of someone creating her perfect nude by just using a concealer that's her skin tone, followed by a clear gloss.

    That is a very subtle nude... I'll pick one up while out doing a staple shop,

    Don't know why I am just seeing this but I am so sad that Hodgepodge AND BBQ lip pencil were dc'd. They were staples.

    I'm around NC50 and I wear Bobbi Brown stick foundation in 6.5/6.75. My fave nudes are Taupe (MAC), Among the Fireflies (MAC), Lolita (Kat Von D), and Teddy Bare (Milani).

    hello, girls!
    Have you ever tried Sephora's Lipstains? They have so many colors and some amazin nudes! And I really like the formula!
    Looking forward to know what you think if you tried those ones!

    I really like Burt's Bee's Solar Eclipse Lip Gloss. Most of the time I wear it on it's own and sometimes I put it over a bright red to give it a little tint and shine.
