There is nothing worse than buying a 'nude' lipstick which makes your lips look like you've gone through 3 sets of winters without moisturising. Unfortunately, I have seen many girls walking around with that 'ashy' lip look, probably thinking they have secured themselves the most amazing nude lip. I personally sympathise with these girls because there is a great difficulty in finding nude lipstick for darker skin tones and hence why I have kept away from them.
However, I realised that I really needed something neutral for work, especially on those days where I have to be in Court. For office days, I have been experimenting with either a subtle pink or even Spice It Up by MAC (mixed with the subtle pink, so it's not so 'out there') but lately I have been feeling like I really need to get my hands on something that screams effort, but without the effort.
After some research via Youtube, I compiled a list of colours I thought would suit me. After a quick consultation with the MUA, I decided on ' Fresh Brew', which has a lustre finish. I would describe the colour as coffee for the lips.
As you can see, it gives my lips a glazed look, with a little bit of colour. Nothing too extreme or too out there.
I shall be making a video showcasing my favourite MAC lipsticks and it will feature Fresh Brew. What's your favourite nude lipstick?
Just so you know, I got this item because I backed to MAC some old and empty products. In the UK, if you return 6, full sized empty or old products to MAC, you will receive a free lipstick - hurrah!
