Lip Inventory 4: Nudes

This post has been the longest time coming! But here we are for the 4th installment of my lipstick collection, nude lipsticks. As this has been a while in the making I may have bought a few new ones since I've put together these pictures. I think my lip colour will be forever growing so it would be impossible to keep this properly updated.

Here are all my current nude lipsticks. Most of them look very similar and some are varying shades of nude that probably push the boundaries, but what the hey.



L-R. MAC Hue, MAC Myth, Nyx Black Label Lipstick in Nude, Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle, Revlon Matte Lipstick in Smoked Peach, Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude, MUG Shy, BYS Champagne Rain, Nyx Round Lipstick Summer Rain, Nyx Round Lipstick Iris


Hue is a pink based nude, very creamy and can go on quite sheer if you prefer that look.

A light beige colour that is also extremely creamy, can you see the digs on the side of the bullet? It happens a lot to heaps of my lipsticks it is so frustrating. I find it sits on top of my lips so I have to use my fingers otherwise it settles in the lines but sits on top elsewhere, does that make sense? I also need to use a slightly darker blended lip liner otherwise it makes my lips look too stark or something.
This lipstick is so similar to Myth, however it is probably a bit more peachy, but it could still be a dupe. Still very creamy & opaque, but I find it doesn't last too long.

 A sheer & moisturizing formula, this is a milky-pink nude.

 This is not a typical nude but it is a matte formula and as the name suggests is peach toned & perfect for smoky eyes. I haven't noticed this being extremely drying.
 A matte true nude lip colour that is extremely opaque & perfect if you're after a muted lip colour.
 A MLBB with mauve undertones, nice with a light pink lipgloss over the top.
 This is the first nude lip colour I have ever bought (that is the end of the bullet right there) and I even bought a backup ages ago but took that out and lost it (typically it had to be the new one -.-). But I always thought this was similar to Hue, it is a pinky nude that is so creamy so I should swatch them side by side to have a closer look.

 Summer love is brown toned which in turn makes me look a little bit corpsy, similar to MAC's Honeylove which is another post. So not a fave, will probably swap away.

Iris is a frosty light peachy-nude colour that I am not a fan of on it's own but it is pretty over the top of a matte nude colour such as Nude Attitude.

My favourites out of all of these nude colours would probably be Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle, MAC Hue & Revlon Matte Nude Attitude for the perfect nude lips. However I don't think I have found my HG nude lipstick yet.

Stay tuned for my Berry/ Purple inventory coming up which will still probably be far away yet as I have to force myself to do lip swatch after lip swatch.

  5. I'm curious about MUG lipsticks, Shy seems like a pretty unique shade. I like Hue & Champagne Rain the best :) My fav nudes are MAC Shy Girl, Revlon Soft Nude and Rimmel Nude Delight.

    1. It's my only MUG lipstick, and honestly I don't wear it enough to have much of an opinion. Champagne rain is so pretty and really cheap! I really want to try soft nude too, it looks like a really wearable nude. xx

  9. Myth is a bit too creamy for my taste sometimes, so I do need a lip pencil sometimes. I really really want Smoked Peach! My nudes are MAC Myth and MAC Pillowtalk (the sheerest one - it's a cremesheen!)- funnily I'm into browns these days as well :) LIPSTICK LOVERS UNITE <3 xx

  18. Very nice post! I was thinking of doing a bunch of posts on my lipsticks too. Hue is so nice and one of the only lipsticks I've ever finished! I really want Smoked Peach too but I feel like I have something similar already... My favorite nude lipsticks are: Buxom Big'n'Healthy lipstick in Sydney, and MAC Peachstock. Hands down my all time favorites!

    1. I'd love to see your lipstick collection! Smoked peach does look like the kind of colour you'd have already, lol. Can't ever have too many lipsticks. They both look like nice colours, I googled the Buxom one and a bunch of your pics popped up hehe. xx

  21. great nude lippies hun! i wish i have more nudes, but that colour doesn't really compliments me at all, only a few looks good on me. Revlon have the best nude lippies in my opinion, they don't make you look washed out and suits alot of complexions :) thanks for the swatches! xx

    I hope you're having a beautiful day ~ XO

    1. I agree Revlon have a lot of really nice colours that can suit just about everybody, it's a shame most nudes don't work on you but I'm sure there's plenty out there that do!
