These Are The Only Nudes I Want

Lipstick Queen Nothing But The Nudes

When it comes to nude lipsticks we’re all on the search for the perfect one. The One. Often referred to when girls talk about finding their life partner, but trust me, it’s also relevant to finding the perfect nude lipstick. If you’re a make up lover then you’ll know what I’m talking about: the search for that ultimate nude shade. The one that outdoes all the others, pushes aside the rest of your collection and gets worn religiously. Maybe it’s because the perfect nude lipstick is supposed to be such a staple, like the little black dress of your make up: every girl wants the perfect one. Because when you do find it, you wear it to death. That’s how iconic a good nude lipstick is – it becomes unanimous to you. It looks just right, compliments your skin tone perfectly and adds that tiny hint of colour. The perfect nude lipstick is the one we all want to find.

The great thing about nudes is that there’s actually so many tones within the category. You may not think it but there is. You’ve got brown tone nudes, pinks, mauves, neutrals and pales. There’s literally a huge range to work through to find the perfect one. Looking for the right undertone is the best place to start, and looking at the make up styles you wear each day is a great follow up. For me, it’s always been the pink nudes. I do have a few brown/neutral tones, but the ones I reach for consistently are the pinks.

Lipstick Queen Nothing But The Nudes Review and Swatches

The

 Collection has been my latest obsession with finding the perfect nude lipstick. There’s nine different nude shades and they’ve all been created with a different idea of what the perfect nude should look like, which means they’ve got a pretty good grasp on what you’ll be looking for. I was really pleased to see three very perfect looking pink nudes in the range, as for me that’s the ultimate colour I wear on my lips. I struggle to find nudes that mix well with a rosy pink because usually too much pink removes any nude element. But Lipstick Queen have it nailed.

The three I found to be the best for rosey-toned pink nudes are:

Sweet As Honey – the prettiest pink with almost a baby-pink element to it. Perfection.

Naked Truth – a tiny hint or orange/coral in the pink.

Blooming Blush – the darkest of my collection, more brown in it’s colour

I probably reach for Sweet as Honey the most, it’s got this gorgeous and flattering pink tone to it. It’s bang on for the type of blush I wear and as a fair skinned person, I like the English Rose look to my lips and cheeks, and this shade delivers that perfectly. But between these three I feel like I’ve got a good range of those pink nudes I love to wear and have been reaching for these non-stop since I got them. I can’t believe I hadn’t tried them earlier and if you’re looking for the perfect nude lipstick, I highly recommend looking here.

The finish of the Nothing But The Nudes collection is creamy, which is another reason I’m all heart-eye-emoji over it. I love a creamy finish, mattes are nice but I’d pick a cream or metallic lip over it any day. The colour payoff is lovely too: a few coats and you’re all done. They’re so creamy there’s no need for a gloss or topper and I think the finish is really complimentary of the colours. I’ve had so many compliments on the lipstick I’m wearing when I have these on, and I think that’s a good measure of success.

If you’re looking for the perfect nudes, Lipstick Queen have got them.

    I still haven’t found a nude that suits me. I’ve bought so many but I haven’t thought any of them really suited me. These look really lovely though. 😀
