In case you girls haven't noticed, I like pinky-nude lipstick...a lot! While going through my collection today, I realized that not only do I have a lot of lippies that are variations of the same color, but I also have a lot of MAC lipsticks. I can't really explain my little obsession, nor can I completely justify it either. I just love them! I think the main reason is that I love nudes, but I need some pink in order to avoid looking washed out or chalky. I'm secretly envious of all the girls out there who can pull off a truly pale lip. Kim Kardashian immediately comes to mind. With her beautiful tan skin and dark features, she can do a nude lip like no other! I personally am a bit on the lighter side of the complexion spectrum, especially during the winter months (Is it Summer yet?) A pinky-nude is a perfect solution to my problem. A bit pink, a bit nude. Extremely wearable. It looks great with smokey eyes, or with more natural looks. In a word, Perfection.

See, they all look sort of similar. But different enough I guess =)

  3. I have always been a bold lip girl but lately I've been wearing a lot of pinky nudes. They seem to go with whatever eye makeup I'm wearing!

    I was worried about doing it on myself too especially putting it in as highlights but it turned out ok, plus I new it was going to be gone after a few washes in case I screwed it up. ;-)

    If you think your friend might like any of the shades you should enter for her. :-)

  10. Thanks for the comment hun! I would love to see your set up/storage as well, so whenever you do post it, I'll be on top of that!
    I really liked this post too as I am also quite pale (whether I want to believe it or not) but I love the nude lip a la kim kardashian. So in the winter times, it's more the pinky tones than the lighter beige-y whites (like Close to Real or Darling). I like the looks of Myself... I should try it out.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
