The Nude Lip

Saturday, July 11, 2015

What better way to start this blog off than with a post about lipsticks. I remember when I was younger and just getting myself into makeup I was in absolute awe over M.A.C lipsticks. They were so luxe and there was something so badass about the tampon like packaging. At present I own 17 different shades, and I have to admit to myself this is probably more due to an obsession with buying makeup than actually wearing makeup. Nonetheless I have recently discovered a new love, one which I have been gravitating towards for the past few months and has been a staple in my makeup bag. It is my perfect nude. You know that "your lips but better" look.

The perfect winter nude combination.

I was introduced to Modesty by the lovely lady at the M.A.C store whilst I was actually looking for another shade. And boy am I glad she did! Modesty is a pinky nude colour, which would probably compliment many skin tones. I have light/medium skin with yellow undertones and most nude lip colours tend to wash me out. Modesty provides a lovely pop of pink to the lips for everyday wear whilst providing a lovely neutral put together and sophisticated look for the evening (think bold eyes). It is a part of the cremesheen range and as such feels very moisturising on the lips. For a little more of a glossy look I pop a little bit of Lanolips lip ointment in the shade Rose on top. Seeing as it is currently winter here in the southern hemisphere, the lanolin helps keep the lips moisturised.

I highly recommend checking this shade out the next time you are perusing the M.A.C counter, you won't be disappointed!

  1. This looks like a lovely shade! I don't own any Mac lipsticks and I think I need to fix that!

    1. What a beautiful colour that YSL number is. Gone are the days when Lindsay Lohan first brought out the flesh nude look! xo
