The Best Nude Lipstick


I’ve been searching SO LONG for the perfect nude lipstick shade and I now I’ve finally found it! It’s MAC’s Jubilee in Lustre which is flawless. The colour is a peachy brown which is quite subtle so you can build it up.


The colour totally suits my colourings which is dark hair, blue eyes, pale skin and freckles


December MAC purchases


You know what it’s like; you have a favourite shade of lipstick, eyeshadow or blusher and once it’s used up you really struggle to replace it. I’ve been searching for a nice pink eyeshadow to replace a small pink eyeshadow bought for me years ago in a make up set. I’m still endeavouring to buy toxin free make up so this made the search even harder- an eyeshadow from Illamasqua was pretty much bang on but a look at the ingredients revealed that it contained parabens so it was not to be! I finally settled on this beautiful MAC shade Sweet Acting which is a Pressed Pigment and is lovely and sparkly. I’m also pretty happy that it’s MAC as it’s my favourite make up brand!


The lady in the shop demonstrated that the eyeshadow works a lot better over an eye primer as it gave the colour something to hold onto. I had previously just used ysl’s touche eclat as an eyeshadow primer but after trying a real primer I’ve noticed a huge difference; eye make up is so much easier to apply, including liquid eyeliner on top of eyeshadow, there’s no smudged and it lasts all day without disappearing into the creases- I’m definitely sold! I bought MAC’s painterly Pro longwear paint pot which is the lightest shade and works under all eyeshadows.
