The Cheap Nude Lip

I feel like I'm about a whole year too late on the the nude lip craze but then, when doesn't a nude lip look good? I feel like it can go with any make up look and it just adds that finishing touch to the face when a bold lip would be one step too far.

For a  l o n g  time I was scared of trying out a nude lip pencil or lipstick because I feared I would look like I had the dreaded foundation lips which I am proud to say, I have never been a fan of and never tried out on myself. But then Kylie Jenner lips became a thing and I caved in and decided it was time to try it out.

When it came to to actually choosing and buying a nude product, I knew I just wanted to get one from Boots or Superdrug as I wasn't sure on how great the look was going to be on me and didn't want to spend too much.  Obviously there is the notoriously known nude by Mac called 'Velvet Teddy' but on a Saturday job budget and postage on top of the lipstick itself, this sadly wasn't a choice for me.

I really like the colour of this lip liner as it is quite a dark shade of nude with mauve pigments, meaning there is no sign of foundation lips.

It also has a very creamy consistency so application is smooth and extremely easy as it glides across the lip instead of dragging like some cheaper products do.

I also love the packaging of the lip liner as it has this cool snake/crocodile effect (??) texture which makes the product look more expensive than it really is.

At only £3.99 per pencil, I highly recommend this product to anyone who loves a neutral lip!

Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments of what nude lip products you recommend!
