4 Affordable Nude Lipsticks

Nude lipsticks for me are the most wearable and versatile lipsticks. Majority of the time they will go great with any look. Whenever I get a new lipstick it's only two minutes later until I'm bored and back at the store watching new ones, obviously this can become a seriously expensive hobby, so I decided to throw together some of my favourite affordable nude lipsticks. 

My husband made a rule that for every piece of make up or nail polish I buy I have to throw one away...yet all bathroom draws are literally about to burst.

This is by far one of my favourite drugstore nude lipsticks. It's the perfect nude.. probably nothing to do with the fact that it is JLo's nude... I have tried a couple of lipsticks from the L'oreal Nude lipstick range and this is by far my favourite it's not to light or dark, and not too pink.

I'm also a huge fan of the formula, this range of lipsticks are very hydrating and give just a slight sheen. They aren't the longest lasting, but I can live with that.

We will just keep reapplying like Beyonce, although I'm pretty sure she hires someone to do that for her. 

L'oreal Jennifer's Nude.

This was actually the first 'Matte' Lipstick I bought, and *Newsflash* it ain't that Matte. But the colour makes up for that! It's more of a semi matte but I'm not complaining because it's still a great nude lipstick, this is more of a peachy tone and I feel that this would look flattering on a variety of skin tones.

Katy Kat Matte Lipstick - Sphynx

If you want a large choice of nude lipsticks then head to the Maybelline section of the drugstore. They have a variety of shades to choose from not only nudes but reds, pinks, etc. We will stick to nudes for now. I have tried a a few of Maybelline's lipsticks and I guess you could say I'm fan! I especially love this shade as it is more of a browny nude which I think is perfect for a more sophisticated evening look. I would say the formula is pretty similar to the L'oreal lipstick.

Maybelline The Nudes - Truffle Tease

This one is probably the cheapest of them all, and yes it is not as long lasting as the others but I was surprisingly a huge fan of the shade, I feel like it's more of a fun nude, it's on the pink side. No the formula isn't the best but I'm not going to complain when it was only around $3. Sometimes I want a very light nude, however not like the foundation we used to cover our lips with in high school...

Essence - Nude Love

Swatches on the skin L-R, Katy Kat Matte, Essence, Maybelline, L'oreal.

What are you favourite affordable lipsticks? What are some higher end lipsticks that are worth the price tag?
