I was on the hunt for a great nude that would suit my (Asian) skin and I haven’t really been satisfied with the colours I had found. Maybe I was looking at the wrong colours! I realise now that I was looking for a pink rather than a pale brown. I was under the impression that a pale pink would not suit my skin, but I was obviously wrong.
I came across Faryal Makhdoom (aka Mrs Amir Khan; the famous British boxer’s wife), a recent blogger and YouTuber. I basically love the lipstick that she wears.
She wears both Velvet Teddy and Honey Love and I went to my local Mac counter on a hunt for them. I thought that Velvet Teddy would suit me, but when I was enquiring at the till, this lovely lady said that Honey Love would look better on my skin than Velvet Teddy and she was right. I wore it with Beurre lipliner and it looked great! So I snapped it up.
Keeping with the nudes, I also took the opportunity to purchase the most coveted lipliner – Whirl, a Kyley Jenner favourite.
As I am blogging about Mac purchases, I thought it is only apt to mention that I also made a cheeky previous purchase. I recently bought Viva Glam II, which is a great alternative to a blood red, as it is more darker. Plus I think bright red doesn’t particularly suit me. It is a lovely colour and I would highly recommend it.
Here are some swatches of the lipsticks:
The first is the Whirl Lipliner, second is the lipliner plus Honey Love and lastly Viva Glam II.
I love these – Let me know what your favourite nude lipstick is?
