One makeup trend that everyone seems to be talking about lately is the perfect nude lip. Today I thought I'd share a slightly different take on a nude lip - a deep nude lip! This is a nice way of accenting a look with a neutral lip, but still having some colour on the face. A lot of these have berry or brown-pink undertones and they can look lovely on nearly any skintone. Here are some of my favourite products to achieve a deep nude lip!
First is the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. This is probably the most pink of the bunch, but it's a beautiful creamy deep rose nude shade. The formula of this lipstick is incredibly smooth and pigmented, and is so comfortable on the lips! I just have a sample tube of this lipstick but I'd love to check out some other full-sized shades!
Next is an incredibly popular shade lately, the Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick in Lolita. Lolita is a midtone dusty rose. This lipstick has a matte finish but is still comfortable on the lips. I also have a sample size of this lipstick but it's one I can definitely see myself finishing! I'd like to try the liquid lipstick version of this shade as well.
The next option is a bit more sheer and easily wearable for anyone. This is Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9. This lipstick has a sheer, glossy finish on the lips but is really beautiful. This is a rose shade with slight warm undertones. I have the sample size that came with the Sephora birthday gift from last year, so many of you might already have this in your collection!
Another favourite of mine is the Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Mulberry Nude. This is a long wearing matte lip crayon that is quite similar to the formula of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. This is also a great budget-friendly option! This one has a slightly more berry undertone than the others.
A great way to wear a deep nude lip is with a lip liner! You can wear them on their own, or underneath another lip colour to help it stick around longer or slightly alter the colour! Two of my picks are the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in 018 Addiction or the Midnight Cool M1617 lip liner* from Born Pretty Store. The Rimmel liner offers a more neutral deep nude colour, and the Midnight Cool shade is more pink. Both of these look great on their own or paired with any of the other lipsticks mentioned above! You can also get 10% off the Midnight Cool lip liner from Born Pretty Store with the code TCH10!
