in the nude

Everyone at one time has tried nude lips. A huge trend during the summer, the nude lip's fairly recent debut into common, daily makeup routines set me with the challenge any beauty-obsessed girl would be happy to do - try some nude lipsticks out!

The two I have are Avon's Sparkling Nude and Revlon's 001 Nude Attitude. Sparkling Nude is pretty much in the name - it's a sparkly, pretty, slightly dark nude. It cost around £4 and in my opinion is mediocre. Buttery and thick in application, Sparkling Nude sits on the lips well and for a long time. My problem with it is that it's slightly too sparkly for my taste. I sometimes feel as if I have fallout surrounding my lips and chin, or wonder if my lips have gone from neat to messy. Saying this, it doesn't dry out the lips too much so for the price is good value for money.

Revlon's Nude Attitude is by far the more popular and coveted lipstick, with many reviews of it online. From the matte collection, it's a slightly peach in colour, reassuring me that it doesn't look 'infamously ghostly' on the lips. Being matte it can be drying, but not ridiculously so. It's definitely wearable and when comparing the two lipsticks, this is the one I much prefer!

as soon as I thought to myself  'I much prefer the other lipstick' this one broke. Karma!
 Looking forward to this week - birthday on Thursday so expect a few posts about it! Hopefully going shopping in Westfields Stratford on Sunday, so am hoping to do a haul post. Look out for them!

How and when do you rock nude lips?!
