I’m pretty picky when it comes to my lip colors. It needs to last for hours, doesn’t dry out my lips and the color needs to be flattering. I’ve tested a lot of colors through the years, but these are my favorite shades and formulas! I tend to lean toward matte colors, but surprise surprise, I’ve got one with a bit of shine in this list!

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner
You have to start with a good base and this liner is hands down my favorite. The formula is so creamy and the color iconic nude is perfect under any lip color. I love how you can wear it on its own with just lip balm or layer under your favorite lipstick!
Too Faced Melted Matte
If I had to choose one nude pink lipstick to wear for the rest of my life, it would be this one. I can apply this in the morning and in the evening, my lip color would still be intact. This is through lunch, drinking tons of water and more! The formula glides on smoothly, doesn’t make my lips peel and the color is opaque. My favorite shades are Cool Girl (what I’m wearing in these photos), My Type, Child Star, Queen B and Sellout. Can you tell I love this lipstick!?
Chanel Rouge Duo
A newer addition to my lip lineup, this is a luxurious liquid lip formula. It glides on beautifully and the shade Tender Beige is simply stunning. It is sticky without the gloss on top, so you’ll need to apply a thin layer.
