Lips in Nude

On the scale of 1-10 in ‘I love make-up‘, I’m a solid 7. I love dabbling and experimenting with products and color tones but when it comes to my face, I’ll admit, I’m flat out basic. I’m definitely more of an all-natural type, I could get away with just concealer, eyeliner, and mascara and be good. I mean, really, that’s pretty much all I ever use anyways. Did I mention that I was basic?

I do however love a good lippie. Can you guess by my title what my favorite tones are? If you guessed


Then you were right πŸ˜‰

Sure I love reds, mauves, deep dark tones and will use them here and there but for my typical, “everyday look” nudes all the way.

With that said, today I’m sharing my favorites-

1. NYX Liquid Suede



I know many of you have blogged about Liquid Suede and I’m just another lover of this lippie too. I leave Sandstorm on my desk in the office and reach for it as my go to for touch-up’s.

2. Maybelline Matte

Nude Embrace


This is the one I apply first thing in the morning as I’m leaving for work. It’s my favoriteΒ tone to give me that natural lip color

3. Two Faced Lip Injection



This is a more of just a sheer gloss that I use over Sandstorm or Nude Embrace. It does have a very soft nude tone to it rather it being just clear so sometimes I’ll just wear it as is. However my main purpose for this is for the lip injection part.Β Other than Buxom lip glosses, it’s my favorite lip plumper out there.

The first picture is as is, and the second one is over Nude Embrace




This is the one I shared in my Friday Favorites post. It’s not totally nude because it has that pinkish undertone but it’s still light enough that I would wear it daily..

And there they are…


As an added bonus. I just received this NYX Butter Lipstick-Β Ripe BerryΒ  in my Ipsy bag this month and the product is amazing. Although its no nude, I love applying it because it just glides on so nicely andΒ the color is flattering on. I don’t see myself using it often but if I’m feeling a little bold, I’ll be reaching for it.

Because I love how nicely the NYX Butter Lipstick goes on, I’m certain that I’ll be on the prowl for their nude tones.

I also am desperate to try NYX’s Lip Lingerie. Many of you have raved about that lippie and now I’m so eager to get one! Anyone know of a good tone I should look for?

If you have any favorite NUDE toned lip products you like- please share them, I’d love to try some new ones!

xo, JJ

      Yess, everyone raves about Velvet Teddy, I can’t believe I haven’t even tried it yet. And as for Brave, is that also a MAC color? And thanks for your suggestions!! xoxo

    Yass! Sandstorm was my first liquid suede. I would love to try more high end lippies, especially nudes, but very hard to find some that will suit my skin tone. Also, I’m not trying to buy from obvious brands such as MAC (just because they’re not cruelty free).
    But…I have heard mixed reviews about the lip lingerie. Some love the formula others think it’s too dry. I wanna try it too though. Lol.


    • xoJenny says:

      I know what you mean, not all nude tones go with my skin tone either so I’m willing to pay for higher end ones too if they have one that meets all my lip needs lol As for the lingerie, I can’t even ever find them! They’re definitely not at target so I’m guessing maybe ULTA. But I’ve also heard that they are drying from some but others say its perfect.. I just lovee the color tones I’ve been seeing when people mention them!

    I have SOOO much to learn! I love them all but that Ripe Berry is standing out hard core! I love it!! I need to try Too Faced for that lip plump effect. It’s one of those things I have put off for such a long time, but I just need to delve in and get it! Love your makeup posts!

      Oh girl you and me both, I don’t know much about make up but I do love playing around here and there with it. I bet the ripe berry would look so good on you…it’d give you that “Taylor Swift (blonde hair light eyes red lips)” look! You gotta try it!!! And the lip plump is such a good one. They give that perfect little extra pouty plumpness to your lips! They sell it at sephora in a mini size too so you can test it out before committing to the full size! πŸ™‚ xoxox


      • Mackenzie says:

        Ahhhh I definitely wanna try it! Girl, look at you, you lil’ sales woman! I seriously am going to buy that ripe berry asap!!!!!! Love all your makeup tips. I’m so clueless, so I can use all the help I can get!!!!!!


    • xoJenny says:

      Lol aw thanks!! Nude is awesome because it’s basically like “all-natural” which I love. I like the “i dont wear make up” look for my every day and if I don’t wear nude I look like I’m rocking like a light red lip with my natural tone…its weird lol I feel like I know a lot of make up but at the same time I’m like uhhh whats that? how do you apply that haha so much to learn. Knowing the basics gets me by though πŸ™‚

    I love Nude Lips. There is something so simple yet chic about them. I am a lipstick and then gloss person. I love that shine. I am obsessed with Buxom and Bare Minerals. The nudes are so pretty and they have such a wide selection from a more brown tint to pink.
    I love two faced but have never tried their lipstick (their mascara is amazing!) I am definitely putting it on my list! ❀
