In the Nude
Firstly, I can not write this post without mentioning my newest love, which is the Bare Minerals Gen Nude lipgloss in ‘Groovy’. I am aware that this is not a lipstick, but I am generally not a fan of lipglosses and this one is a complete exception. Absolutely not sticky, smells great, and the perfect amount of pigmentation. It is literally my one and only lip gloss formula, and I suppose I will have to buy the whole range!
A very affordable love of mine is Milani in the shade Bahama Beige. A favorite both last year and this year, it works so well with a bit of a tan and has a lovely yellow-brown hue for an ultra-chic look. On the other end of the price spectrum, also with a nice yellow undertone, is Charlotte Tilbury ‘Hepburn Honey” in that irresistible rose gold packaging. Although pricey, the formula is excellent and I am always reaching for it.
My all-time favorite and the shade I am wearing in this post is the mother of all nudes; the most divine mix of warm and neutral cream shades, and a dream for fair-skinned girls like me: Bite Beauty’s ‘Honeycomb’. When I purchased this in Sephora, an associate said that it was her most favorite shade of all time. I thought that was quite bold, but as of now, I do not have any other nude lipsticks that top the ease of use, excellent formula, shade, and price point. It is faintly lemon scented, and I generally do not like that ‘flavor’ so to speak, but in this formula, it somehow enhances the experience. It is so lovely in the summer, and I am sure it can work with skin tones deeper than mine since there is a dash of pink mixed in with the brown tones.
Let me know what your must-have neutral shades are, and what your summer go-to shades have been in the comments! I am always looking to expand my already-overflowing collection. Here’s to too many lipsticks!
