Winter Nude Lips

While the autumnal berry tones are in full swing in the lip department at the moment, I'm already preparing my lips for the winter months.  I'm a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to bold lips, wearing purples and reds on a daily basis terrifies me.  I feel like people are staring at me and thinking 'who does she think she is?' silly I know as no one probably cares what colour my lips are!  More subtle colours like nudes and pinks are my safe haven, I feel they suit my skin tone better too, so when I saw this Maybelline Colour Show Lipstick in Nude Perfection (£4.99) I just knew I had to get it. 

The lipstick is different to a regular lipstick in the sense it comes as a thick pencil as opposed to a tube.  It is very easy to apply and really pigmented.  I just run it over my lips a few times and they are full of colour.  The colour itself is very non-offensive and a classic nude tone, it can be easily worn everyday but also dressed up with smoky eyes for a night out.  It looks quite matte when applied and while this may work on some, I have quite dry lips, so I just swipe a little bit of Vaseline over the top and make it a bit more moisturised. 

Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture that truly did the shade justice, but in my opinion this is a top contender for being a classic winter nude.  The colour is really complementary to my skin and lasts for a good while throughout the day.  Even more, with it being only only £4.99, it's very purse friendly!  

What lip look will you be wearing this winter?  


  1. I love this colour! These pencils are just so good. I'm going to be doing a review of the shades I have next week sometime, if you fancy taking a look :) xxx

    1. They're lovey aren't they! This is the first one I've bought. Oh yeah I'll definitely keep my eyes out for it :) xxx
