Nude Lips: Capsule Collection


I call this my capsule collection, but that may be pushing it slightly.  What's bigger than a capsule?  An extensive collection...?  Either way, read on if you want to find out my must-haves for nude lips; an interchangeable collection with something for every budget.

Maybe, just maybe it'd be fair to say I have a problem and that a lot of these colours are very similar to each other.  The beauty of this capsule collection however, is that the liners can be used with any of the lipsticks and it'll create a different look.  My must-have from each category?  J Lo's Nude lipstick, Kiko Pencil Lip Gloss, L'Oreal Erotique, Barry M Lip Liner and L'Oreal Bois de Rose.  Controversial, but skip the Lip Cheat.  Perhaps my natural lip shade is just too similar, but it really does nothing for me and most definitely was not worth the price tag.

Now tell me, what should be next addition be?

  2. I've only just got into nude lip colours. I've had Kate's 03 shade before but it did not suit me at all. I don't think paler shades will.
    I'm loving MAC's Nice n Spicy lip liner, I've just done a post on it.

  3. I've enjoyed your post. It's simple in a way that you list the items but the photos and an example of each lip product is great. Allows me to see what they really look like. I might need to check the Barry M pencil sometime soon. (*says that and heads to superdrug*)
