AKA the lip colour that drove me crazy as a teenager, why? Because back in the 90’s it was impossible to get your hands on an actual nude colour lipstick that wasn’t some shade of Brown in the drugstore.

As I was a tween from the countryside and had yet to discover the delights of the MAC lipstick stand (you should have seen how fast the shade ‘Blankety’ was in my kung fu grip when I did!) It felt like I was forever on the hunt for my perfect creamy pale nude.

Nowadays we are lucky enough to have an abundance of nude shades available.From Tom Ford to Tesco. So finally, I can make my peace with the 90’s nude lip and admit that it actually is a look that I am loving at the moment!

In particular this combination, essence lip liner- ‘in the nude’ (top swatch) for the price (less than £3.)

I’m really impressed with the creamy formula and longevity of this lip liner. That aside and back to the 90’s, this is the perfect tawny brown liner for a 90’s nude either worn all over the lips or paired up with my recent love (bottom swatch)


 Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet ‘Nude-ist’    

 Ahhhh if ever there was a time I was happy to be a bandwagon hopper then it’s every time I see my reflection and this perfect pinky-brown nude beauty is on my lips!

Quick hats off to the formula, a liquid lipstick with a matte finish that packs some serious pigment and sticks around for hours!

I won’t go too much more into detail but if you haven’t tried one of these then let me give you a gentle nudge towards your local Boots 😉

This is definitely my most worn lip combination of late and can see it continuing to be a favourite for the remaining winter months!
