Lip Stash by Hue: The Nudes

Hi, everyone! For those who have been reading my Lip Stash by Hue posts so far (thank you!), you might be wondering "does this girl wear any lip colours that aren't neon bright?" It's true, I'm all about a vibrant lip, but even I crave a more muted shade now and again. So here they are, the nude lipsticks in my stash! As you'll see, none are your typical matte, concealer-lips sorts of formulas. Instead, most have a satin or glossy finish that renders the nude hue more wearable. Matte nudes tend to really wash me out, so I need a bit of shine! The shades range from soft milky pink to tawny browns with some super soft corals and plums in between. Check 'em out! 



Here are the lighter, more classic nudes in my stash:


Julep Lip Vernis in Camellia (discontinued)
Annabelle Twist Up Metal Mix in Nude of Fame
Hourglass High Shine Lip Gloss in Child
Hard Candy Painted Lady Lip Colour in Perfect 10 (discontinued)
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy
YSL Glossy Stain in Beige Anarchist

And the darker, more coral and brown nudes in my collection:


MAC Lustre Lipstick in Viva Glam V
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Modesty
NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso (limited edition)
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Memento
Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic
Revlon ColourBurst Lipstick in Rosy Nude (discontinued)


And here are the lip colours all lined up, followed by swatches of each in the same order:

And each of the lipsticks in the context of an entire makeup look:

Julep Lip Vernis in Camellia

Annabelle Twist Up Metal Mix in Nude of Fame

Hourglass High Shine Lip Gloss in Child

Hard Candy Painted Lady Lip Colour in Perfect 10

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy

YSL Glossy Shine in Beige Anarchist

MAC Lustre Lipstick in Viva Glam V

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Modesty

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso

OCC Lip Tar in Memento

NudeStix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Mystic

Revlon ColourBurst Lipstick in Rosy Nude

So there we have it! Proof that even the most vibrant of girls can go nude. It's true that I don't reach for these shades all the time, but many of them do hold a special place in my heart. Viva Glam V was my first-ever MAC lipstick (this is my second tube), Hard Candy Perfect 10 may be my favourite nude lipstick of all-time (and is sadly discontinued), Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy never fails to make me feel ultra sophisticated, and YSL Beige Anarchist goes with any makeup look. Literally. I'm glad this post jogged my memory about how fab some of these nudes really are!

Am I tempting you with any of these? What are your go-to nude lipsticks?

Thanks for dropping by! xo

  6. I only recently discovered Annabelle and have two shades of the twist up lipsticks and I've been loving both. Love that Nude of Fame shade on you, will need to pick that up next.

  7. I really like Viva Glam V. It looks super nice on you! :) I remember I tried it out but it washed me out a bit. Maybe I should head to MAC and swatch it again.

  11. NARS Descanso was the first one that caught my eye in the swatches, so I immediately scrolled down to see what it looks like on. AND WOW. Yeah, I'm usually in love with your bright colours, but this one in particular is so lovely on you.

  14. Oh I love how Descanso looks on you WAY more than it looks on me! On me it's just an uninteresting pale shade that I can't seem to love. On you it's SOOO pretty!
