Nude Lipsticks for Pale Girls
As a pale, 'English Rose' type, I have always found it really hard to find the perfect nude lipstick for me. I have very pale skin, blue/green eyes and very rosy hued lips. I think the thing for me that I had to break through to find the perfect nude lip is that I wasn't necessarily looking for a nude nude. Think foundation lips and you'll get what I mean. The first foray into nude lips I tried was MAC's Hue. A beautiful colour, but absolutely not on me, I looked like a dead person, and it was blocking out my natural lip colour entirely making me look like I'd just used a concealer as lipstick and put a clear gloss on top, just so not my nude. Late last year when Burberry were promoting their 'Kisses' lipstick range they were sending out super cute mini lipsticks as samples and this is when I struck nude gold, if you will. It was the shade 'Nude Pink' (featured in this post), a stony rose nude with a sheer balm like finish. Still to this day this is my perfect nude. When looking for a nude lipstick pay attention to the tone of your actual lips, this is the lesson I needed to learn to find my perfect nude. I've put together a rundown of 5 nudes that work for pale girl 'English Rose' types like myself or even if you have rosy lips!

Lancome Shine Lover 212: This lipstick has a shine finish as the name would suggest - but goes on like a gloss/balm hybrid. This means the colour last a lot longer and its really moisturising throughout the day. I have previously done a review on this lipstick here if you want a more in depth run down of this particular one.

MAC Modesty:
 If you are going to buy one MAC lipstick, this should be it. It goes with absolutely any make up look and looks amazing on most skin tones. Its a cremesheen finish, which means its a creamy/balmy finish so not completely matte.

NARS Rikugien: This is newer to my collection but I've used it so much already. It has a satin finish which looks like the natural finish of bare lips. Its more pink toned that the others on this list but I like that because it makes the lips look more full and awakens the rest of your face. This can be sheer but also built up.

Rimmel Kate Moss 45: This is pretty much the exact same colour as MAC Modest but it has a matte finish. This is the one I reach for when I'm wearing a heavy eye look and don't want any shine at all on my lips. It's not typically drying like most matte lipsticks which makes this a wonderful nude lipstick. More in depth review here.

Burberry Kisses Nude Rose: This is the first nude lipstick I owned and still my favourite. The finish is sheer & balm like meaning its moisturising throughout the day and can be built up as desired.

Whats your favourite nude lipstick?
