Nothing says sophisticated to me more than a nude lip. Think Brigitte Bardot circa 1950 to Kim Kardashian, dare I say, gasp!, circa 2010. OK, well you may not want to be the sex kitten staring in a film, but you may want the perfect pout to pair with a smokey eye at night, or something nude for day. Here are some of my favorite nudes for all occasions.
I can't tell you how much I love Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, and Belle De Jour is one of my absolute favorite colors. This light nude beige pencil is great as a liner, and lipstick, but even perfect as a primer. The sticks are so pigment-rich that application will be kept to a minimum all day!
Not to fond of lipsticks but still want the perfect nude pout? Try Yves Saint Laurent's Golden Gloss in Golden Nude. This gloss isn't just any old gloss, it's a luxury gloss. What's so luxurious that makes this gloss hard penny to swallow? Well, it leaves your lips sparkling, with real 24-carat-gold flecks to give you a high shine mirror-effect. Okay well if you are not already sold, I must say the scent is heavenly!
