How to Hack the Nude (Lipstick)

I only really got into the nude lipstick fad in the last year, and can I just say? Total game-changer. I never really liked them on other people (mostly thinking of YouTubers who always point out their lipstick) because I didn’t think it really added anything to the look. I was the type of person that wore lipstick mostly as a statement, and used one or two pink colours for everyday wear. My favourite thing about nude lipsticks NOW is that it doesn’t make an obvious statement or add a ton to the look. Instead… it just ~works~ no matter what’s going on with the rest of my face. Lipstick seriously helps frame your face, and 9 times out of 10 I’m wearing really minimal, natural makeup intended to do just that – highlight my features and frame my face. Back in the old days, I used t just put on a lip balm that would be gone in a matter of minute. Now, I addd a nude lip and it raises the look up a few notches, giving the look a more professional and put together tone.
When it comes to nude lipsticks I have some MAJOR favs and some I use just to mix it up. I have different shades to go with different outfits and different ~vibes~. Here are my top five favourites, and what I like to wear them with.

Full Disclosure: These products were sent to me free for review. All opinions remain to be my own.

I was SO flattered to receive these lipsticks in the mail! I have never received any products completely out of the blue like this before so I was really surprised and of course excited to try these. I wasn’t sure what to expect – I’m always a little hesitant when I receive a product for free. Mostly I’m thinking along the lines of ‘if they’re sending it to ME for free with no strings attached how good can it really be?!’ And that’s really just my own self-doubt kicking in, isn’t it? A lot of my favourite products are by Maybelline, but I have to say I’ve never been overly impressed by any drugstore lip products recently – enter the Maybelline Stay Matte Ink, Un-Nude style.

Maybelline Total Temptations | Review

Maybelline JUST announced that they’re launching a whole new collection called ‘total temptation‘ and I managed to get my hands on it so I could get you all the lowdown before it drops! There are three products in the release: a shadow/highlight palette, a brow pencil, and a mascara. The whole line is pink and sparkly, and is infused with coconut extract (aka smells awesome). Safe to say, I was super thrilled to see this in my mailbox….
