The Nude Obsessive

(not sure what's going on with the lighting- sorry!)

2016/2017 have certainly been the years I became obsessed with nude lipsticks. Last week when I was in London I embarked on some retail therapy and treated myself to two new nude lip products, both of which had been on my 'list' for some time, and I knew I needed to buy them in person rather than just ordering them online.

Firstly I got my hands on Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. I feel like it has taken me forever to buy this lipliner and I have no idea why. You can read my quick review on the matching lipstick here, and the pair together is heavenly. On my skin tone it creates a slightly darker neutral rose shade, and I adore it.

I have been desperate to try some of the Too Faced Melted lipsticks since I first properly discovered the brand last year. I was in the Debenhams in Westfield White City and the sales assistant who served me was the nicest girl ever. I had watched Doughnut and was unsure as to whether it would suit my skin tone or not, as it is what I call 'pinky/milky peach' nude which has the tendency to wash me out, however I went with my gut and imagined it with a darker lipliner (Pillow Talk obviously!) and managed to get my hands on the last one in store! (It was even better when I realised I had a £5 rewards on my Debenhams card along with a gift card to spend!) I really like the formula of this liquid lipstick, its incredibly long-lasting for a non-matte formula and doesn't feel remotely drying on my lips in the slightest.

I've secretly decided that these two shades combined are my new 'secret weapon/lucky charm'- I wore this lip combination in my last university audition last week and it must have worked since I got in!

Brace yourselves for another new post regarding nude lips in the next couple of days, I may have made a naughty online MAC order a couple of days ago...
