So for me, there’s nothing quite like a nude lip. It’s definitely my comfort zone, but on Monday mornings, the possibility of me picking a more daring colour are definitely about zero. But don’t get me wrong, choosing the perfect shade of nude is a serious task – I want something that will give my face a bit of colour, keep me looking polished but not look too try hard.
I’ve already talked about how much I love the formula of Burberry’s new Full Kisses formula here, but if you’ve never tried them before, you’re really missing out. First off, the packaging is all sorts of chic. The sleek gunmetal grey tube is etched with a subtle Burberry check, and it slots nicely into my makeup bag. The formulas are just as dreamy. They feel rich and moisturising on the lips, but not too heavy or sticky. They just glide on, and stay there for a good four hours or so.
I’m just obsessed with the chi sled shape of the lipstick bullet. It makes applying it on-the-go so easy, and you don’t need to have to faff around with a lip brush. Blush Nude is a beautiful my-lips-but-better shade, that’s just perfect if you’re looking for something that’s both low key but chic. It’s the perfect pairing to a dramatic smoky eye, but I’ve been wearing it to complement my more subtle everyday looks.
