Hey everyone, Kaelin here! Erika thought it would be a really fun idea for Kaela & I to start contributing some posts to the blog every now and then so today I have my very first guest post for you. I thought I would start off with something makeup related as it’s one of my favourite topics to chat about. Something I get most frequently asked about over on my Instagram are the lip products I wear. Especially nude colours specifically. So, today I wanted to share some of my personal favourites with you and why I love them! I hope you find these recommendations helpful :)
MY HOLY GRAILS
One of my nudest lipsticks in my collection and also one of my favourites. In my opinion, you definitely need to pair this shade with a slightly darker liner underneath to give it a bit of definition. However, I love the look you can achieve with it & the formula wears really well too.
I LOVEEE the MAC liquid lipstick formula so much. It wears so well and I never find it too drying. ‘Lady be good’ is my favourite out of the nude shades. It’s a gorgeous peachy nude. I know from my time working on counter that it suits almost everyone who tries it on. Definitely add it to your list!
My most affordable go-to and probably the lipstick I’ve worn the most in the last six months. It’s also one of the most non-drying liquid lipsticks I’ve picked up and the perfect warm nude. You won’t regret buying this.
Another one of my go-to’s. Pure Hollywood is more of a pinky nude. I will forever re-purchase this. I love the formula so much and it stays on forever. I also really love this lipstick in the shade ‘Milkshake’. It’s a lighter and less pink colour but so so nice paired with either of the lipliners I chat about a little later in this post.
This one is the latest addition to my favourite nude lip products and I’m happy to say it’s from an Irish brand called SoSu which was created by Suzanne Jackson. This creamy formula stood out to me in particular and was so nice to wear after a very cold winter. It’s also super affordable!
THE ONLY LIPLINERS I WEAR
The only brown lipliner you need in your life! If you are going to buy anything on this list, buy this. It’s the perfect cool tone brown that enhances any nude shade you have in the perfect way. Honestly such a nice product!
My 2nd most used MAC lipliner is called Soar. This is more of a mauvey pink but again goes so well with all nude shades. Kylie Jenner actually made this one famous a few years ago but I can definitely see why.
THE ONES I’M DYING TO TRY
I’ve heard so many great things about this Charlotte tilbury shade and apparently the formula is pretty lush too so it’s definitely on my wishlist. It’s a little on the pricier side so I’m interested to see if it will live up to the hype.
Erika has used this shade a few times in the past and always tells me I need to try it so I’m intrigued. I’m always slow to try lipliners from brands other than MAC but I think I’ll have to make an exception for this.
I hope you enjoyed my first guest post and hopefully got some recommendations. Erika & I are still over in Australia and really enjoying our time here so be sure to follow along on Instagram if you aren’t already.
Talk to you all soon,
