A nude lip is definitely my favourite lately, loving the simplicity and how easily a nude lip colour goes with any look. I recently shared my MAC nude lipsticks, which I adore, but there's a few more brands which make it into the 'perfect lip product' pile where nudes are concerned.

Bobbi Brown Baby Pink Lip Colour is the only limited edition shade in my picks, from the Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Collection which was released in 2013. A beautiful pinky nude with a creamy formula that glides on effortlessly, I find Bobbi Brown lipsticks to be some of the most comfortable to wear. Light-weight yet highly pigmented, Baby Pink is perfect for those who love a warmer nude. A similar shade available as a permanent shade is Bobbi Brown Blondie Pink (£19)

Lime Crime is one of my favourite brands overall for the amazing pigmentation in their products, but their lipsticks are particularly beautiful with quirky and bold packaging, alongside creamy formulas that glide on giving true opaque and long-lasting colour. Lime Crime Babette (£12.50) is a super pretty pink toned nude, whilst Lime Crime Coquette (£12.50) is more beige in tone and the perfect alternative to Bobbi Brown Baby Pink, just a touch cooler in tone.

MAC Mehr (£15) has made quite a few appearances on the blog since I first added it to my collection, and I think it'll always be a favourite. A lot warmer and deeper in tone than other nudes I own, for me Mehr is the perfect shade for my naturally darker lips.

ModelCo Kitty (£15.50) is one of those shades, and brands, which really surprised me. I'll admit, if I'm paying high-end prices I want high-end packaging, and for me ModelCo doesn't have the same feel as other brands in my stash. But the lipstick itself is absolutely gorgeous with a soft, creamy formula and fantastic colour pay-off. Kitty is a soft nude with pale pink undertones that I would recommend for any skintone, a super everyday wearable shade that has fab longevity.

Tarte Enlightened Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick unfortunately no longer seems available anywhere online (please correct me if I'm wrong!), but it's one of the lovely lip products I picked up in my Sephora haul. Although I'm disappointed with how much product there is for the price, the lipstick itself is truly divine with a formula that from first use, has left me smitten. Enlightened is a stunning peachy nude that I'm become really quite obsessed with!

Urban Decay Fiend Revolution Lipstick (£15) was my first Urban Decay lipstick and alongside MAC, easily one of my favourite lipstick formulas. I have a few in my collection now, but Fiend is my absolute favourite. Similar to MAC Mehr, but lighter, softer and a touch brighter, Fiend is one of those utterly perfect nudes that I turn to time and time again.
