Nude Lipstick Guide

April 2, 2013


I've finally taken the plunge and dipped into a little lipstick trying. I've never been one to wear lipstick or even lip gloss. I've been a girl strictly wearing chapstick, even on our wedding day. I'm just not a fan of the sticky residue and the cakey look it can bring.

Recently I've been self tanning and feel like my overall makeup looks good but something just was off. I tried a little gloss one night and realized I need to spice up my lips somehow to keep them from looking blah. I browsed Pinterest for a few days reading reviews and comments on any and every nude lipstick and settled on Revlon Soft Nude. The problem is that it's in such high demand I could only find it on eBay for $30. Ouch, I know. I grit my teeth and made the purchase after seeing all the pros vs. cons on the product and while I waited I found Revlon Skyline Pink at Target. I thought they'd be roughly the same hue but to my surprise, I had two completely different tones. I loved the pink and the shade it offered, it's perfect for going out and you need a little shimmer. When I got Soft Nude in the mail, I wore it constantly. It brings out a much softer nude//coral tone and the finish is glossy.

I was at Target, again and came across Rimmel London's Kate Moss line in the color 113 and was obsessed! It gives a matted finish so it's not glossy and has the same consistency as my chapstick. Talk about amazing! And this little lady only cost me $5. This is the one I'm sold on. I have now purchased a second one so I have one for my purse and one for my makeup bag.

All in all, if you're a newbie to trying out lipsticks and aren't quite ready to smack on some red or hot pink lips, these are great ones to work your way up. I'm pleased with all the products and I'm so happy to say I've found my perfect shade. It's like Christmas morning in my makeup bag now & I love it!

+ n o t e : to get the true color of your lipstick when applying, add a little concealer on your lips before application. this provides a neutral base to show off the fab color your lipstick has to offer!

  2. I'm not the biggest lipstick person either so this is awesome. Thank you so much for these picks! I have a Target gift card so I might head over and pick up the Rimmel London's Kat Moss one.
    Thank you for the post! I will be using it for sure!

  3. I love this! I have the reds and pinks down, but a great neutral color is hard to find. Also, great tip about the concealer first, I can't wait to try it!

  4. Thanks for these suggestions! I have tried a bunch of MAC nude lipsticks and think they wash me out too much. I am going to try one of these. :)

  5. I had previously purchased a matte kate moss lipstick in 103 which is a creamy rose pink. It's actually super close to my natural lipcolor but gives it just a little more color. I love it. I think I'll have to buy the 113 now too. Thanks for sharing!

  6. i'm slowly starting to wear lipstick more often. it's more work than my usual chapstick, but i just look SO much better. it's hard for me to remember to reapply it when i'm out, but getting better at it.

  9. I have Revlon's soft nude and love it! I didn't realize it was in such high demand, makes me glad I only paid $10 last year:)

  10. I've always been a chapstick girl or lipgloss for certain occasions, but I also have the Rimmel London 113 and it is a perfect nude! Sheer with a little shimmer to it and just a lovely color. I think I want to try the other two as well.
