Nude LOTD ~ Mac Honeylove, By Terry & Collection 2000

148

I hadn’t planned to blog about this - just happened to be wearing these colours and liked them so decided to take some pics… this is the combination I use the most to create a natural looking ‘nude’ lip, using Mac, Collection 2000 and By Terry.

The products applied in shade and direct sunlight: liner, lipstick, then gloss.

These are the products I used: 

  • Mac Honeylove
  • Collection 2000 Lip Definer in #02 Cappuccino
  • By Terry Lip Expert Gloss

When I first got Mac Honeylove (in a blog sale) I was really unsure about it - I’d never worn such a pale nude and felt like it washed me out. It’s a matte lipstick, and I personally only feel comfortable wearing it defined with liner and a slick of gloss.

You could use any lipliner but I love the Collection 2000 as it has no orange/red tones and is cheap as chips!

I’ve had this By Terry gloss for a couple of years (I know but I love it!)… it’s a lip plumping formula which I bought on sale in Sephora in Paris.  I’ve just found a link to it (reduced) at Space NK - I think it’s the Crazy Nude shade, but am honestly not sure as it’s worn off my tube, but any peachy gloss would work - I just wanted to add a bit of warmth and shine.

Here is the look in the context of my face… I wasn’t wearing much other makeup as hadn’t planned to take pics that day, so it’s just Liz Earle Skin Tint, Daniel Sandler Watercolour blush in Goddess and a slick of mascara.

I recently posted about a Bobbi Brown darker ‘nude’ lip {link here} and will soon share some pics and swatches of my favourite pink toned nude lipsticks.

I can’t find the Collection 2000 lip definer on Boots or Superdrug websites, but you can get it in both places - I got mine in Superdrug and it’s about £3-4.  Mac Honeylove lipstick is £13.50 at mac online. By Terry Lip Expert Gloss is reduced to half price, 12 euro at byterry.com and a similar price at Space NK.

What’s your favourite nude lip colour?
