Nude lips are trending. I don’t know if Kylie Jenner started it or is just banking on it but I’m pissed that I still haven’t been able to get my hands on one of her lip kits.

Nude lips have been killing it extra hard for at least the past year, and even though I’m a Russian Red girl myself, I’m in love. I splurge on a new matte lipstick every time I’m at target. It’s a problem (but it looks so good!)

Motherhood by Francisco Zúñiga wearing NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Stone Fox or Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipsticks in Stark Naked

Obvi a gray statue needs a gray lipstick. However, assuming the statue came to life and was kinda tan (like me), then the gray would no longer be nude and she’d have to switch to the Urban Decay color. I’m covering all my bases.

Nude Woman in a Red Armchair by Pablo Picasso wearing NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Embellishment

It’s hard to tell but this lipstick has some super purple undertones. Unfortunately there aren’t nude lipsticks for everyone and I had too hard a time finding a periwinkle color still available. But I guess that speaks more to the short-lived pastel trend than anything else.
