I'm not very adventurous when it comes to lip colours. I always end up buying a new variation of a nude, peach or neutral pink - and of my vast collection, these are my favourite; a matte finish, a sheer balm and one with a glossy shine.
Mac Matte Lipstick in Honey Love
Mac offer their fair share of gorgeous nude lipsticks, some of my favourites being Creme d'Nude and Peach Blossom, but my absolute favourite is Honey Love. It's a good, lighter, alternative to Velvet Teddy for those of us of a paler skin tone. It's a light beige tone with a velvety matte finish.
This tinted lip balm is infused with oils, so it's really moisturising whilst being comfortable and lightweight to wear. 'Nude Passion' is a brownish pink that just adds a touch of colour and subtle sheen to the lips.
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park
This is the perfect peachy pink tone with a wet-look shine. It's got a silky smooth texture that's comfortable and hydrating and, like all NARS Lip Pencils, the colour is long lasting. I find the Satin finish doesn't last as long as the matte pencils, but it's pretty good.
The downside, is the roughness left around the nib after sharpening - despite doing it with the proper NARS lip pencil sharpener. This makes application a little scratchy, but the beautiful colour is totally worth it.
