MAC’s Cherish, with a little bit of Love Nectar or top. The color is warm enough and doesn’t make me look washed out.

I would have to say… MAC Syrup (with MUFE Aqua Lip No. 2) and top that with Partial to Pink Cremesheen Glass.

MAC’s Bare Venus + C-Thru lipglass. I am fair skinned…I don’t use MAC foundation, but I am “fairly light” in the Bare Escentuals line.

My nude summer lips : MAC Freckletone (nude peach) with Napoleon Perdis in Protege lipgloss on top (a nude corally shade)! I’m NC44

Ok , AM i probably the only person who wears the nude colors and feel like i look like a corse? Just cant pul it off:(

No, Kathy. You’re not the only one! I hate how a true nude l/s looks on me. Lately, I’ve been using MAC Thrills l/s just barely touched on the lips from the tube to give a base. Then top with Stila Kitten gloss in the center. (For ref, I’m an NW 15/20 depending on the season – freckled, hazel eyes, brown hair.)

It’s definitely not just you! I feel like everyone can rock out Myth, Peachstock, and Freckletone EXCEPT me! Everyone has their perfect nude, you just have to find yours. I’m NW20 (fair skin, blue eyes, brown hair) and MAC’s Hug Me and Jubilee are MY perfect nudes. They may not work for everyone, but they work for me because with such fair skin, it’s better to go a little darker so you don’t wash yourself out.

You know, I also can’t wear those lipsticks. They don’t suit my complexation at all! My lips are super pigmented (in a mauvish shade) and I can only wear pinky-nudes. MAC’s Hug me and Jubilee are my perfect nudes as well! I’m NC25 in SFF for reference.

My combos,
hug me / jubilee + mac lipglass (the clear one) / nymphette / love rock / gold rebel or utterly posh.

Yay! Thanks Marjo now I know what to get! I’m NC20-25 and my lips are super pigmented. I look awful in true nudes. I’ll be getting hug me, maybe cherish and jubilee too :3

Nope – i can’t wear beigey nudes but try a more pinkish nude. That’s what i wear when i need a “nude” lip. Th beige nude makes me look like death!

I like to wear Spirit (Mac) – it’s a satin finish & it carries the right amount of color without being a ghostly nude on my skin (I’m a tad lighter than NARS Sheer Glow in Syracuse). It’s really hard for darker girls like myself to find a “nude” lip color – 99% of them simply do not work, so I’m really glad I found this ultra-wearable-on-a-daily-basis color. I top it off w/ a touch of Rosebud Salve for a slight sheen w/o being too lipgloss-y.

recently i’ve been using MAC Myth with Stila’s Starfruit.
Not the greatest, but I love having something good to go with Myth.
Anyone else know any good Myth combos???

Try putting Nymphette (golden pink) or Love Nectar (peachy with a hint of pink) on top. Really pretty. If you want something more nude — try Florabundance on top.

My favorite nude combo is NARS Belle de Jour lipstick top with Shisedo Champagne Sparkle lip gloss. I don’t wear MAC foundations but I’m guessing I’m around a NC43. I use MUFE HD Foundation in #155.

My favorite nude lipstick is MAC Shy Girl, it works really well on my fair skin because it doesn’t wash me out! Then I put MAC Prrr Lipglass on top of that!

MAC Honeylove lipstick with any gloss…been liking NYX Megashine lipgloss in Sweetheart or MAC Boybait cremesheen lipglass or just clear gloss :). BTW I’m around NC25-30/MUFE HD #125/NARS Sheer Glow Punjab

I’m NW30/NARS Barcelona… My FAVE nude lip combo’s are Myth lipstick by MAC with Striptease lipgloss by NARS and Honeylove lipstick by MAC with C-Thru lipgloss also by MAC πŸ™‚

Still searching for a lipstick, currently use Flirty Nude stain from CG w/Smashbox quench moisture rich lip gloss. I’m a MUFE 209.

Urban Decay Naked lipstick :] it’s my HG lipstick for work! Otherwise, I’m a huge fan of MAC Way to Love, which they seriously need to re-release!
