Nude Lipsticks To Try

Nude Lipsticks to Try I am actually one that loves to break out the nude lipsticks in colder months. Especially ones with warm brown, mauve or rose petal pink undertones. Straight flesh-colored, beige has never suited me with thin lips (want lip filler but I'm a baby) as it all but erases my mouth. Typically, colors like that don't look attractive on most skin and lip types since it tends to make the mouth look lifeless (think corpse bride). Having even a dash of color in the nude looks much rosier, healthier and attractive. 

These are a few of the nude lipsticks I have loved and used again and again for a long time...


If any nude screams fall, this one sure does. Its warm brown undertones look so flattering on all skin types. For a matte color this one is surprisingly creamy in texture and actually wears really comfortably on the lips. 


This is actually the creamiest, best smelling (think mango tropical paradise), most buttery-smooth feeling lipstick of all time. If I could justify the price tag, every single shade in the line would come home with me. The milky pink undertone is so feminine, light and simply beautiful. 


See that nude lipstick in the gold tube towards the bottom? Yea, the one that looks weirdly shaped? The sad one. But seriously, I have used this lipstick SO much and have bought tube after tube for myself and my family/friends. It just looks good on everyone. By good I mean do a double-take good. For a drugstore lipstick, this one is a must-have sort of find and I often choose it over my high-end lip products. It's creamy, comfortable, and a fantastic every day nude lipstick with pink undertones. 


This is a pretty good dupe for the Yves Saint Laurent shade I talked about earlier. It's reminiscent in its creaminess but has a glossier, more sheer finish (but with high pigment!) Like a lip balm, lipstick hybrid, I break this one out when my lips are chapped but I want some day-time appropriate color.  


Technically, I never use this lipstick by itself and more as a "topper" or overcoat as this one is just slightly too flesh-toned for me. I love to use it overtop a lipstick with a bit more color to lighten it or in the center of the lips to create the appearance of a poutier lip. I remember buying this one in Dallas from the flagship Makeup Forever store at the North Park Mall which is so beautiful. 



Tell me some of your holy-grail nude lipsticks!

Winter Wishing

Winter Wishing | Tis' the season to make wish lists and ohhh boyyy do I have some pretty little things I'm drooling over. Spruce up your wish list and take a gander at some of the things I'm wishing for this winter. Oh, and I also might have thrown in a free printable wish list for you too. 

Sonia Kashuk Holiday Limited Edition All That Jazz Brush Set ($34.99)

Like I really need any more brushes--but anything gold, rose gold, or just general gold-ish in color speaks to me. Just $34 bucks for ten gorgeous brushes which look fit for royalty? Yea. the frantic red head stalking the aisles of Target. 

Pocket Posh Coloring Book ($11.92)

I would say don't judge me but honestly...I'm already judging myself. I say YOLO though. I absolutely LOVE this concept of an adult coloring book. It's great for the artsy fartsy, those who love to doodle or if you're just plain overworked and want to take a breather. I can't wait to snatch this baby up and color in all of the different designs on each page. My markers and gel pens are chomping at the bit. 

Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask ($92.00)

Very recently I started a few little anti aging steps in my skincare routine for preventative measures (aka the baby keeps me up at night). This Black Tea Mask is one of the new items at Sephora and looks like the perfect pick me up for tired skin. An intense moisturizing overnight treatment, it "works in sync with the skin's natural nighttime recovery process to achieve a lifted, firmer look by morning." I love that the Sephora website describes it as having a "corset-like" effect. 

Flash Tattoos ($22.00)

I know these aren't exactly a new concept anymore but I'm still dying to try these out. They just got these in at Sephora and I'm so excited to peruse through all the designs and choose some. I love that they have a metallic shine that gives it the look of jewelry all over the body. 

Alex and Ani Mermaid Bangle ($28.00)

I'm not usually one for charm bracelets but I got one as an early Christmas present and now I'm hooked. I love that they are bangle style with one charm on each so you can stack them up your arm. I think its a more adult approach to charm bracelets instead of attaching a zillion charms to one (I'm looking at you Pandora). Of course, to each his own though. I'm itching to collect quite a few, but the next one I'm eyeing is the mermaid bangle. The Little Mermaid (and all mermaid lore for that matter) was my boo thang back in the day so there is a sense of nostalgia there for me. Also I'm biased with my red hair.
