I love nude lips, and this is very obvious from the fact that the majority of my lipstick collection is some kind of nude colors. I used to love pale nude lips, but now I try to stay away from colors that make me look sick. Instead, I enjoy nude colors with a hint of flesh. My new favorite lip products combination gives me a radiant bare finish without the sickly pale look.
MAC Honeylove Lipstick ($14): Honeylove is a matte nude color with a pink undertone. I was a bit wary at first that the matte formula would be drying on my lips. However, it glides on smoothly and is not drying as some matte lipsticks tend to do.
MAC Baby Blooms Lipglass (From Graphic Garden Collection Lip Bags $34.50): Baby Blooms is a bronzy lipgloss with a frost finish and tons of golden shimmer. The color in the tube looks a bit too much for a nude look. However, when applied on lips, the bronzyness and golden shimmer is not over powering, but add a hint of warmth to the finish.
