Lipstick Week Day 2 — Nudes!

I’m continuing Lipstick Week with my three MAC nudes — Freckletone, Shy Girl (review) and Velvet Teddy (review). I’m not really a nude lipstick girl. I think that if I had to wear nude, I might as well just slap on some lip balm and not wear any lipstick at all. Add to that my fear of looking like a brought-back-to-life Walking dead character. All this changed when I got Velvet Teddy, my first encounter of the nude lip. Its swatches online looked convincingly non-concealer-like which was what I was scared of. Thankfully, Velvet Teddy lived up to my expectations. It’s a touch darker than what nude normally looks like and is the darkest of the three nudes I own — Shy Girl and Freckletone are the other two. Check out my comparison swatches on the three shades I’ve accumulated below. SWATCHES I arranged the shades in order of lightest to darkest. I actually imagined Freckletone to be the lightest at first but being of Lustre formulation, it appears slightly darker when applied on my pigmented lips. Shy Girl, on the other hand, is of Cremesheen formula and much peachier than Freckletone which leans more orange. Shy Girl is the ‘truest nude‘ on my lips but the formula really disagrees with me — emphasizing dryness and not the least bit moisturizing. Velvet Teddy is of Matte formula but unlike the creamy matte formula of Mehr. But because I love the shade so much, I’m willing to prep my lips and moisturize prior to application so I could decently wear it. If I were to pick a TOP nude shade — well, it wouldn’t be easy. The perfect shade of real nude for my skintone would be Shy Girl as Velvet Teddy could actually pass off as an MLBB shade for me. But I like the Lustre formula which is much more forgiving and doesn’t emphasize my poor lip condition. Hmmm, a combination of Shy Girl‘s color and Freckletone‘s formula would be my perfect nude then. Although I do love Freckletone too even if I actually didn’t plan on getting it in the first place (only because it’s a Year of the Snake product and I’m a Snake baby). It’s just that the color and formula of this particular shade together act as a gloss that makes my lips shiny orangey instead of nude. That ends my NUDE lipstick picks — what is YOUR PERFECT NUDE LIPSTICK? Do share!

    How funny – nude lipsticks are my personal favourites so they make up the bulk of my collection! I love MAC Shy Girl the most, but also Hug Me and Razzledazzler.

    My fave shade is she girl! I like the pink undertone in it! I love velvet teddy but I think its too similar to my natural lip shade!

    They all look so gorgeous on you!! Velvet Teddy is the darkest nude I own but I love it because it never makes me look washed out. It’s MLBB shade xx
