Favourite Nude Lip Shades – Collaboration with Cassixmakeup

Hello Beauties!

I am so happy to share with you my first collaboration post today! This post is in collaboration with Cassi, from Cassixmakeup. Cassi has the most beautiful blog where she shares her makeup reviews, MOTD and some amazing lifestyle posts! Cassi is so sweet and is always interacting within our blogging community. She is definitely worth the follow! 

One of my favourite lip shades to wear is hands down “nudes”. I love wearing nude shades as it’s more of a laid back, everyday kind of colour. Of course, you can always dress up a nude lip with some bold lashes and a dramatic cat eye! 

Without further ado, let’s check out my go-to nude shades!


MAC – Whirl

This is one of my favourite MAC lipsticks. The MAC website lists this colour as a dusty rose, but it definitely pulls more browns in my eyes. This long wearing formula is not drying at all and is super easy to apply-no mirror needed!

Essence – Cool Nude

Probably my favourite nude lipstick from the drugstore is this bad boy. This gorgeous pinky-brown with a hint of lustre will be a shade everyone will want once you’re wearing it. 

Essence – Oh so matt! (Can’t seem to find this shade on their website any longer)

Another one from Essence is “oh so matt!”. This colour however pulls more brown and is closer to my actual skintone. I love wearing this shade with a golden lipgloss! Super affordable as well!

Bite Beauty – High Pigment Pencil – Madeira

This lip pencil delivers a matte look and with a very precise tip at the end for easy application. This shade is another nude-pink but is warmer than the Essence “Cool Nude”. This was one of Kathleen Lights favourites for a while!

ColourPop – Lippie Stix – Aquarius

This medium-to-full coverage lipstick that’s ultra creamy and melts onto the lips. These Lippie Stix wear all day and are super comfortable on the lips. Shade: warm pinky-brown.

Liquid Lip/Lip Creme

ColourPop – Ultra Satin Lip – Likely

This product is probably in my top three for my all time favourite nude shades! This formula has the same high percentage of pigments as the Ultra Matte Lip but contains ingredients for added moisture! Shade: nude.

NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream – Stockholm

The texture of this formula is quite moussey but dries down to a matte finish. These are also non drying on the lips! Shade: Mid-tone beige pink.

NYX – Whipped Soufflé – Cocoa Bean

This product is a two-in-one mousse that can be used on your lips and on the apples of your cheeks! Has a pointed applicator for easy application. Shade: brown with a slight pink undertone. Does contain quite a bit of glitter-beware!

Lip Liner

Essence – Lip Liner – In The Nude

These lipliners are super smooth and long lasting. I typically wear these on their own or add a gloss over top. 

ColourPop – Lippie Pencil- Aquarius

As mentioned above the Aquarius Lippie Stix has a matching lip pencil. I always use these two hand in hand as the liner helps prevent feathering.

Lip Gloss

Buxom – Full-On Lip Cream – White Russian & Hot Toddy

Hands down my favourite lip glosses of all time. These glosses are creamy, no-shimmer, with a tingling, plumping effect. White Russian is a nude with a pink undertone while Hot Toddy is a warm nude.

NYX – Butter Gloss – Tiramisu

A creamy sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky, these glosses are always thrown into my purse. Wear alone or add on top of a lipstick, plus these smell like freshly baked cookies! Shade: warm toasty nude.

  1. Great post! I agree, the nudes are so laid back and wearable! You know, I’ve never owned ANY MAC products…but that lipstick in Whirl is calling my name! And I love, love, love Aquarius from ColourPop!! xoxo


  2. I loved this post, but it made me want to go out and buy more lip products lol! I’ve always been interested in Whirl, Stockholm, and White Russian, but always talked myself out of it because “I don’t need any more nude lip products”. I should just go for it!
