As you might be able to tell from the title of today’s blog post I’ll be sharing my go-to nude lipsticks with you today. Now this isn’t supposed to be a favorites posts because my lipstick collection is gigantic, so I have tons of favorites, especially neutral lipsticks. Today’s post is about the lipsticks I truly reach for the most. The lipsticks I put on when I’m in a rush or when I need it to stay looking good all day. These lipsticks are the ones I trust the most. They have never disappointed me so far and I wear them whenever I want to play it safe. But before I ramble on even more let’s get straight into the post.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks In Pure Hollywood & Crush
I currently own four ABH liquid lipsticks. Two I’m obsessed with and two I despise (not even exaggerating, I swear). But today let’s focus on the ones I do love and reach for all the time. Pure Hollywood is a classic nude beige lipstick shade and it’s literally perfect for any occasion and it will work with just about any makeup look, which is definitely a plus in my books. It has full opaque coverage, minimal to no transfer and is very long-lasting. What more could you wish for? In fact, Pure Hollywood is the only lipstick I’ve ever had to repurchase because I finished it. I have an unnecessary way too excessive amount of lipsticks, so I usually never finish one. Hence the fact that I repurchased Pure Hollywood is saying a lot.
All of the just mentioned benefits about Pure Hollywood also apply to the shade Crush. Crush is a beautiful beige, slightly dusty rose kind of color if you know what I mean. Well, even if you don’t it’s a beautiful shade and one I reach for when I want a neutral lipstick, that still has a hint of color to it. I’ve owned both of these for about a year now and still wear them all the time. They’re especially great for work because I know they will stay looking perfect throughout my 9 hour work day without me having to touch up.
Too Faced Melted Matte in Child Star
Child Star is another one of those lipsticks I wear to work all the time because it’s not drying, lasts forever and stays looking pretty on my lips throughout my entire work day. Child Star is also one of those classic beige nudes but it is a little lighter than Pure Hollywood. This shade also goes with literally any outfit or any makeup look. It’s such a low maintenance lipstick it’s just perfect for whenever you’re in a rush or on the go or just can’t decide what lipstick you feel like wearing that day, because you certainly can’t go wrong with this one.
Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Sonic Truth
In the past one to two years liquid lipsticks have taken over my life and I rarely buy a basic regular old-fashioned lipstick anymore. But from time to time I do still fall in love with one and this was the case with this beauty by Marc Jacobs. First off the sleek packaging is stunning! I love carrying this around in my bag because it’s pretty and who doesn’t like pretty things, especially when they come in the form of a lipstick? Sonic Truth is another one of those nude lipsticks that has a slight dusty rose tint to it, which I personally really like because sometimes you want to go neutral but not necessarily super beige. Sonic Truth is relatively matte but not completely. It has a nice creamy formula, which feels very hydrating and lightweight on the lips. Out of all the lipsticks mentioned in this post this one has the shortest staying power but it still is quite long-lasting. I usually re-apply this within my lunch break and then I’m good to go for another five hours.

Of course here I have some swatches for you, which already completes today’s blog post. I genuinely love all four of these lipsticks and have worn them so many times I’ll probably have to repurchase all of them soon. If I had to choose a favorite I couldn’t because they all have a special place in my heart.
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
