My Favorite Nude Lips (MAC, NARS, YSL)

Monday, July 20, 2009

Here are few of my fave lipsticks that I use on daily basis. I didn't put any of my fave MAC LE lipsticks here coz I haven't feel like using them much since they are hard to find (like 3N & St. Germain). All my favorites are in nude and baby pink family. I'm a big fan of pale lips and MAC has large selection of those and they are not overly pricey.

I have pigmented lips and tend to go for the finishes that have more coverage and none drying. MAC Creamsheen and Amplified are my favorite finishes, they're very moisturizing and give the most coverage (I do like Lustre but wish it has more coverage). Angel(frost) and Hue(glaze) are nice coz they are not as dry as other frost and glaze ones, and the prettiest baby pinks compliment almost all skin tones.

Blankety was my first nude lipstick since long time ago and I'm still loving it these days. I found it a little similar to Creme d'nude on my lips, just a tad more brown.

Angel and Cream Cup are almost the same. Angel is very smooth and not drying compare with other frost finishes. They are more pink compare with the rest but still lighter than my own lips.

Hue is a sexy color and it will be a 10 if it's not a Glaze. I do need to scrub my lips really well before I put this on. It's so preeeety on smooth and pouty lips. I'm hoping to find something that has exact color but in different finish... 

I'm also a big fan of NARS Chelsea girls lip lacquer. The color is almost identical to YSL Rouge Volupte #2 Sensual Silk. They are pinky beige, not as beige as Creme d'nude and not as pink as Angel. They are the perfect nude lips for me and they both give really good coverage. YSL has weak staying power but it has yummy melon taste and it's a pleasure to apply! These 2 are my perfect nudes (how many time I'm saying this, haha). I will always stick with them if I don't have so many MACs waiting for me to use :)

So this is it! my favorite nude lips... they are pretty much the same colors but I still want more! If you know something that's worth trying, do let me know ;)

Impressive pale lippies collection! The nude lippies I got are from Revlon, L'oreal, they are kinda nice, but I bet they aren't as creamy and good texture as MAC, YSL or Nars.

Wow, very nice range of nude lippies, I think nude lips suit you :) I can't carry nude lips, I look like I'm sick when I wear them, so I've only got one nude lip that was by Shiseido, which I use as a lip balm now hehe.

The Nars Lip Lacquer look interesting, I might go and check it out next time when I go beauty shopping :)

Thanks for sharing!

I know this is an older post, but I was just wondering if you've found any dupes of 3N. Thanks so much!

I haven't been able to find the dupes of 3N. However, 3N is a bit sheer and MAC Hue actually looks not dupe but a bit similar to 3N on me (Hue is just a bit paler). Some people don't agree with it but I think it depends on your own lip color. HTH!
