Lipstick Week: Nude

Hey Dolls :)

Today it's the turn of the nudes on lipstick week. I've never really felt that I've found a nude that I like and suits me before - 17's mirror shine in bee-hive comes close but I feel that's cheating a little as it comes out pretty much as a gloss. I decided to break out Gosh Darling again...

During lipstick week, I've tried to not wear much eye make up but felt I'd look a little dead with both naked lips and eyes so swirled on some Urban Decay's Ecstasy...

I actually quite like it, it is a bit paler than I normally like but it isn't terrible!! What are your favorite nudes?

Also, you only have until midnight tonight to enter my giveaway - click here to win some Illamasqua, Cath Kidston and Accessorize goodies (and some extra special SILLY and SNOWY surprises cough cough...)

Love Nic



  1. That looks so gorgeous on you! I got Gosh Darling ages ago...but it doesn't look right on me. Makes me look half dead! :/ I just use it as a base lippie for bright colours now! :)


  2. you total babe, you!! Your skin looks LUSH! My skin has improved dramatically since using witch hazel ;D All fanks to your blog post <3 weeewooo! nudes look great on you, they always look strange on me n__n'' YAY for UD Ecstasy + your adorable little purple hair flower! Much love xxxxx

  3. I think it looks lovely on you! I struggle with nudes too, I think it's because you see nude lips done wrong everywhere you turn on young girls, orange or concealer lips, and I just wish they didn't make themselves look so dead :/

  4. gosh darling looks great on you, you have nothing to worry about! what are you wearing on your cheeks? looks fabby xoxo

  5. love ur makeup ,, gorgeous as always ,,
