The perfect nude lip colour isn't easy to come by.
Nude lips have made a massive comeback, and as someone who doesn't really suit bold lipsticks, nude is definitely my go-to lip colour. You’ll very rarely – if ever – catch me in a bright or highly-pigmented lipstick, so I'm always on the lookout for the "perfect" nude which I must admit, is hard to find.
You don’t want your lips to completely blend with your skin, you don’t want the nude to dull down your skin (which can easily happen with the wrong shade) and you definitely don't want your nude to make you look zombie-esque by being too light. Honestly, finding the right colour is such a battle!
Because of my skin colour, and the fact that my lips have a very pink undertone, it's difficult to find the colour that I want to achieve, plus, i'm so darn picky so that doesn't help!
I recently stumbled across Maybelline’s Colour Sensational – The Buffs Lip Colour range and decided to test them out to see if I could find the perfect nude lip in this collection.
This diverse range has 8 natural and neutral colour pigments, ranging from a darker browny-red to a pale-peachy nude, meaning that there's a shade to match all skin tones.
