Lip Week Day 1: Nude lipsticks

Welcome to Lip Week! Today I'm showing you my top 5 favourite nude lipsticks. Even though I'm a bright lippy lover, sometimes a girl doesn't want to attract too much attention to her lips so a good quality nude is a must.

The colours, left to right are:

1. Heavy Rotation Milky Colour in 03 - I bought this from a Korean cosmetics store in Taylor Square (Sydney), but I've since seen them at various other Korean stores so if you love the colour I suggest you pop over to your nearest store and see if they have it. It's quite similar to MAC Myth, is a semi-matte milky nude that I wear under glosses.

2. MAC Creme Cup - a pinky nude shade. It's cremesheen formula so it's not the longest lasting lippy, but it's such an easy to wear shade you can see I've almost finished it up.

3. Chi Chi Viva La Diva lipstick in Hollywood Heiress - this one leans quite warm, almost peachy, on my lips. I like to wear this when I have a bit of a tan, otherwise it makes my skin look sallow. The formula is creamy, and coverage is semi-opaque. Similar to Cremesheens.

4. Maybelline lipstick in Warm Latte - this is a frosty shade, it looks fab with a tan but looks great even without one. I like it because the added frostiness lifts this up from a boring nude to something a bit more exciting.

5. Maybelline Matte lipstick in MAT7 - another Maybelline! This is a recent acquisition, it's a very browny nude. It's matte, but not very drying, and I tend to wear this when I'm wearing a bit of colour on the eyes, e.g. with green eyeshadow.

And here are the lip swatches, which have all been taken in natural light. I have not used a lipliner so that you can see the true colour of the lipsticks.
1. Heavy Rotation in 03; 2. MAC in Creme Cup; 3. Chi Chi in Hollywood Heiress; 4. Maybelline in Warm Latte; 5. Maybelline in MAT07

What do you think of my favourite nude lipsticks? Do you have any of them?


  1. I really like the look of Hollywood Heiress! I've since discovered that only warm, peachy-brown nudes look good on me (every other variation looks horrendous), so I may have to check that one out!

  2. Wow these are all beautiful nudes. I especially love #2, #3 and #5.

  3. Looking forward to the entire week Lilit :) great idea ! I love how Hollywood Heiress and Maybelline Matte lipstick in MAT7 looks..

  4. Might have to pick up Creme Cup. Hopefully it's better than Patisserie (sorry if this a double up).

  5. Creme Cup is probably my favorite nude lipstick! x

  6. Love this post! I love nude lipstick shades, especially brown toned ones. x

  7. Creme Cup is one of my faves ! Love the look of Hollywood Heiress as well, I prefer nudes that are more pinky-peach.
