My Collection of Nude Lip Products & Swatches


Nude lip products are a must have. I don't think any beauty-guru, or (in my case) beauty-obsessed-amateur would disagree with me there. I feel that nude lips have become particularly more popular recently due to the stunning Kylie Jenner and her gorgeous nude-lipped pout storming social media; at least this was what made me, personally, re-visit the nude lip look rather than always opting for the brilliantly bold one that you would always see me sporting. Also, it's rather handy that nude lips are perfect for school, but don't get me wrong, no teacher can come between my precious red lipstick and I for too long!

Sadly I couldn't find links for every single product, as some have been discontinued.


This is my current range of nude lip products; ranging from Gloss to Balm formula...

REVLON COLOURBUST MATTE BLAM IN ELUSIVE (205)

This particular product line from Revlon is by far one of my holy grail products. All the shades are beautiful; they're pigmented, long lasting and moisturising - not to mention they smell and taste wonderfully of mint! I would definitely recommend this shade and the others in the line (Don't tell my bank manager but I own every single one!)





REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN CAPPUCINO (353)

This is again one of my holy grail products - this gives a super pretty shine and lasts for a long while. I always receive compliments when I wear this shade so I would definitely recommend them, and I plan to try other colours in the line in the future too.





L'OREAL PARIS GLAM SHINE NATURAL GLOW IN MAGNETIC ROSE GLOW (403)

Sadly L'Oreal decided to discontinue their Glam Shine range, but they replaced in with the Infalliable Mega Gloss Collection and I'm pretty sure there would be a shade very similar to this in there; there may in fact be some way of finding the exact Glam Shine shades in this collection too, but I'm not sure if that's true or not.





TED BAKER LIPSTICK IN NUDE (PART OF SET)

Again, I don't know if this is still avaliable anymore, but if any Ted Baker sets come out in the future that contain lipsticks, I would definitely recommend them as they're moisturising, pigmented and long lasting too.




THE BODY SHOP LIPSTICK IN 01

This is also a product that I don't think is avaliable anymore; I also don't know the exact name for this lipstick as the only information provided is the shade number. This is, however, a beautiful colour that feels really moisturising when applied. Despite this, the lasting power isn't as strong as I would have liked it to have been.





BOURJOIS ROUGE EDITION LIPSTICK IN ROSE TWEED (04)

I had high expectations of this product as I'd heard fantastic things about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick Collection, but when I tried it, despite the gorgeous colour and creamy formula, the staying power was awful and it smudged very easily too. I do want to persist with using this product though due to it's colour - which I have pretty much fallen in love with. If you have any tips for making lipstick stay put, please leave them in the comments below!

Lastly, to help show them I have swatched each product shown below. I have just labelled each swatch with the product name and shade number as I couldn't fit the shade names on as well - if you have any questions about the swatches or any of the products above, or any recommendations for other nude lip products, please leave them in the comments section!
