I have been loving this combo for my perfect nude lip for a couple of years now. Don’t get me wrong I have a few nude Lipsticks but none of them even compare – I guess I am trying to search for that one lipstick that does it all, think I must admit I am a bit rubbish at picking a nude lipstick for myself, they always appear different in the shop. 😦
As I have a darker skin tone I find that the rose/pink/beige tones suit me more. So to get to the point my perfect nude lip combo is the Milani Colour Statement Lipstick in Nude Crème (26) and the Urban Decay Glide on Lip Pencil in Manic.
I only own one Milani lipstick as living in the UK these are hard to find, although I think Beauty Bay now stock some of their products. The first time I got this lipstick was when I was in Florida and I used and loved it to death, my friends then went to New York and kindly got me another! (Total heros) It is such a creamy formula and feels so moisturising, and the shade is a pink/rose, and it smells like watermelon, I belive these lipsticks are around $5.00 so a real bargain.
The Urban Decay Lip Pencil is more of a dusky rose colour, and is very pigmented and creamy, is applies really well. These pencils retail at £13.50. I got mine from Debenhams.
I generally apply the lipliner first by outlining as normal, I then fill in the outer corners with the lip pencil to give a sort of ombre effect, filling in the lip with the lipstick. I love this nude lip combo, it lasts as well. Just hoping that these products are never discontinued and someone I know is viting the US again soon! 🙂
