Nude Lips

I love the internet! It brings information to me at a moment’s notice. The internet has helped my wardrobe immensely by bringing fashion to me that I wouldn’t have had access to in Oklahoma otherwise. It is also gives me the ability to have Everyday K! It can also make me feel utterly annoyed, like when I’m trying to get a post uploaded and my wifi connection is gone! It’s my fault that I waited until the last minute and now it’s Thursday night at midnight and I can’t go anywhere else to get internet. So I apologize for this post going up late!

This is a post I never thought I would be writing. I have always been someone that loved a bold lip color! You can see from this post and this post that I loved bold reds and hot pinks. It doesn’t take much for me to pull out a bright color. Some people may be scared of the reds and pinks, but that is how I’ve felt about nude lip colors.


The problem I had with nude lip colors was that I never found one that seemed to not make me look washed out or pasty. Bright colors flatter my skin tone and I expect a nude lip color to do the same. After trying a few colors I gave up and decided nude lip colors just weren’t for me.

After seeing it recommended online, I was tempted to try Maybelline’s Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks. Instead of going for my first pick, a matte red, I went for Nude Thrill. It was love at first swipe! It’s a ‘your lip color but better’ color. It adds some definition with a barely there look. It will flatter most skin tones. If you need a bit more pink/blush tones to your color the other nude in the collection, Nude Flush, is your ticket.

Now onto the formula. First of all, it is matte! Matte lip colors have become my favorite lately. Also, the formula feels so good. Normally, I find any matte formulas drying and tight feeling. Maybelline isn’t lying when they call this formula velvet. It feels amazing! I would recommend any of the colors in this line.

My only con to the liquid lipstick is the wear. It will last about 4 hours really well. After that you will need another application. I don’t mind this too much because I love the feel of it so much.

Do you have any nude lip colors that you like?

  1. I had not purchased a matte lipstick in years. About 11... until I saw the trend back, just two weeks ago I picked up one from a cheap brand, just to give it a try. The shade is really bright... I like it but would be happier with something more like yours.
