Left to right! - 40, 42, 43, 45, 48 (Shop!)

Honestly, nude lipsticks have never been my thing. I am just naturally drawn to bright and vibrant
colours, however now that I am getting older and my style is going through a major change (E.g My
home decor has gone from pink everything to neutral tones of black, white, grey & silver) I have
come to realise that wearing brights when it comes to lipstick all of the time probably isn't always

I am delighted to have had the opportunity to try out this range by a makeup brand I know well and
love as I probably wouldn't have gone out and purchased these myself. However now that I have had
a good play around with these I am completely addicted to them and love the natural statement look
they give. Plus the range of shades are perfect for every occasion and there really is something for

The shades are designed to suit fair, medium & dark skin tones. Let me explain a little of each one.

Swatches! :)

Shade #40
This is the lightest shade and designed to suit fair skin tones. Having naturally light skin myself 
although not fair I have found this shade to suit me quite well. It doesn't look too light or make me
appear washed out which I did fear at first.

Shade #42
This shade along with #43 & #45 are suited to medium skin tones which I feel like is more where I fit into and what would be most popular as it is in the middle. This colour is much more pink 
toned than the nude #40 which is almost skin colour which could almost match a very light 
foundation shade. Out of all, this is my favourite pick of the bunch.

Shade #43
Also suited to medium skin tones this more browner toned lipstick I feel like is great for contoured,
bronzy looks win a slight tan kiss to the skin. I feel like this shade really suits my dark brown hair's
roots I have going on at the moment! Reminds me of Kylie Jenner's lips for some reason!

Shade #45
The third shade for the medium toned skin type is my other favourite. This with it's pink with
purple under tones is completely my style. I love how subtle this is from my usual shocking hot pink
I usually reach for. It is just enough to make me look put together and grown up to go about my day 
do day life. This shade is really gorgeous!

Shade #48
This last shade for dark skin tones is really dark when it comes to lipsticks and I never wear this
colour as it's a little too extreme for me. However I can see myself wearing this for one of my 
Youtube videos as I like to keep my looks different and interesting for each one so this would be a
fun one to wear in an upcoming one just to see how it looks on camera. Who knows, it is kinda 
growing on me and again reminds me of another member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, this time
Khloe! (I hardly ever watch the show btw, how many do they have now anyway? Yet somehow I 
know all the lip colours they wear...?) #makeupgeek This is a lovely chocolate brown with deep red 
under tones. For the bold & beautiful ones! 

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Transparent Lip Liner #001 (Shop!)
Here is a new and innovative product which I have had an interesting time playing with and
trying to figure out! This product is completely new to me, I have never before seen another
transparent lip liner. Am I the only one? It can be used to line your lips when you wear any
lipstick shade which I think is a great idea so you're not having to search around for the perfect
match! It helps keep lipstick from bleeding around the lips and onto the skin, contains shea butter
for added moisture unlike a lot of lip liners I have used in the past which can be quite drying. 
Lasts up the seven hours! RRP $12.50

How often do you go nude? ;)
