    MAC’s Hug Me.

  2. Carrie

    MAC Buoy-o-buoy!

  3. Terry

    I’m still looking for it :( On my quite pigmented lips all light colours appears corpse-like. I am using NARS Pigalle, its colour actually resembles the natural colour of my lips but I’m not 100% satisfied with it.

    • BabyyCham

      Me too! I haven’t found the right nude lippy either :(

      • Terry

        Just think I’ve tried anything neutral by NARS (Belle de Jour, Blonde Venus, Chelsea Girls, Striptease) but they have all been such a disappointment. The only colour which actually seems to work is the brown-pink of Pigalle and Butterfield 8 (a lip lacquer), but I’d like a proper nude look.

  4. Kirstin

    It’s not a lipstick, but I looove MAC’s C-Thru lipglass.

  5. I’m going to say Brew from Smoke Signals! It’s all time my favorite!

  6. Sonia

    YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in No 7 (Honey)
    Scott Barnes lipslick in ‘Show Off’

  7. Dawn

    I Love Chelsea and Stay in touch, by MAC of course. Lipglass, I love love love Languish and Viva Glam V.

  9. paola

    mac’s creme d’ nude is my fave!!! lipgloss avon classic nude is def my favorite as well

  10. I’m going for Modesty Cremesheen lipstick

  11. Jessika

    Clinique – Angel Spice, its amazing!!
    Its got decent coverage and has a really nice sheen. Its such a shame its been discontinued. MAC’s Jubilee and Hug Me have been my replacements, but not as good as Angel Spice.

  12. MAC’s 1N lip gloss over lip erase
    nude lipstick: MAC -Siss, loreal fairest nude

    • Rebecca

      I have L’Oreal ‘Fairest Nude’ too! I saw it used in an Allure editorial with the ‘Forest’ eye shadow duo on a fair blonde model and had to have the look.

  13. DevilishDoll

  37. My-Linh

    I’m not a lipstick person but I got a full sized lipstick from a Clinique GWP awhile back. Clinique’s Long Last Lipstick in Honeynut looks great on me!

  38. I love MAC’s Peachstock for that peach-nude everyday look (I think this color is only available at select places because I don’t see it at the MAC site).
    However for smokey eyes and all I love the almost-dead looking (on me) Creme d’Nude paired with a sheer pink gloss.

  39. Chloe

    GOSH Lipstick in Darling. It’s stunning!

  40. So I am guessing from the previous replies that you ladies really love the MAC brand!! Guess what I am trying when I get to the States!! I LOVE lipstick and my favorite nudes are Mary Kay TANNED (brought THREE of them to Afghanistan with me) and Artistry Subtle. I am TOTALLY into the nude lip look with the slightly heavier eye. Is a GREAT look for this chick who is now closer to 5-0 than 40!!

  41. Melissa

    HUE! :) it’s a pinky nude.. but i love a nude with SOME color it doesnt make you look so Washed out! :/ BLEH.

  42. NudeLipstickFanatic

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE nude coloring on the lips, maybe that’s why i spend hours and hours searching for the perfect nude lipstick. My lips are VERY pigmented (red), I also have a problem with my lips always being chapped, which also explains my love for chapsticks. (which never really help my lips anyway, i went to a dermotologist and got a medication for it, but thats not what im trying to tell you LOL sry) OK well the best nudes i have found so far are:

    M.A.C’s lipstick in MYTH.
    M.A.C’S Creme’d NUDE
    you can find these on

    Also im purchasing at the moment lipsticks from for 2 dollars, they are the NYX round lipsticks.
    im purchasing these two colors:
    CIRCE &


    DO – NOT – USE – CONCEALER!!! Drys your lips like crazy and shows the fine lines!!!!!!

  43. Flor Marie

  46. Mac Frecklestone

    Since I have pigmented lips, I use Benefit Lip Plumper as a primer, so that I don’t look corps-like 😉
