I actually went to Selfridges to get a nude lipstick from MAC, a lighter pigmented creamy sheen . BUT, as ever I and many people experience, the service is S*#T!! They offer so many colours and so many stuck up sales assistants to offer some help. As soon as I walked around the corner to NARS and Bobby Brown, I was greated and offered assistance instantly. Which helped me pick these two colours.
NARS - Napoli (£18) , Bobby Brown - Soft Coral 7 (£18)
They both are 'Rouge a Levres' finish, which is a creamy moisturising result, a lipstick with high pigments and a moisturising factor.
Starting with the NARS, this one is a gorgeous colour, it really compliments my olive skin tone. It looks browny but it is a nude lip colour, which assents the origional colour of your lips. It has pinky undertones so it doesn't come out brown, but more of a fleshy gloss. This is a nice lipstick for someone who doesn't wear glosses and doesn't want the harsh look of a lipstick. It's very subtle and looks great as a day or evening lipstick.
The Bobby Brown has the same finish and is very pigmented ! It is less glossy but more creamy, so when you're wearing it , it feels like you have a lip balm on.. The high pigments make it a perfect summery lipstick as it is in a very fresh colour. I wear this to brighten my face up as it's not a harsh on the lips. I wear it in the day or on a night out - it works really well for both. It is also SPF12 which is even better for a day lipstick !
The swatch of them doesn't do them much justice, I'll do a picture on my lips at some point.
