Gen Nude by Bare Minerals, £18

Barry M Matte Me Up, £4.99

If you’ve been desperate to get your hands on a Kylie Lip Kit but can’t justify the shipping charges – Barry M might have the answer.  The three shade options in the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit range wouldn’t look out of place on a Kardashian shelf and we are LOVING their creamy formula and staying power. Best of all, they’re only £4.99. Kylie who?

Sleek Matte Me Lip Gloss in Birthday Suit, £4.99

Want a liquid lipstick with serious staying power? Look no further than the Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream. It dries quickly, lasts forever and doesn’t have the stickiness of other brands. We’re obsessed.

 Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in Nude No. 3, £24

Your lips but definitely better. Seriously, this is no-makeup-makeup at it’s best. We are hooked on the peachy undertones of this sexy shade and can’t believe how ultra-moisturising it feels on our lips.  Wear alone or pair it with smokey eyes for extra sexiness. Bridgette Bardot eat your heart out.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, £23

Darlings! All your nude lip wishes have come true thanks to fashion’s fairy godmother, Charlotte Tilbury. This must-have lippy was created for fans after they demanded a lipstick to match her sell-out Pillow Talk lip-liner. We’ve tried this lippy with the liner and we can confirm it’s AH-MAZING. This universally flattering shade was made to suit every skin tone and give us the pillow plump lips we’ve always wanted. Get yours before they go – people are already flogging them on Ebay for 40 quid!


Nars Het Loo Satin Lip Pencil, £20

You know what is even better than a great nude lipstick? A great nude lip pencil. This one from Nars is our fave. It’s the perfect ‘90s colour and looks great whether you are going full on glam or nice and natural. Vamp up the volume by applying it all over your lips or dab it on with lip balm for a sheer ‘n’ natural look.

Mac Velvet Teddy, £15.50

This cult classic is never far from out makeup bags. Why? Because the ultra creamy formula lasts all day and has just the right amount of pink to give your lips a subtle pop of colour. We’re hooked.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Autograph, Look of Love, £14

Not only does the packing rival designer brands, Rosie’s M&S lipsticks are full of nourishing ingredients and ultra pigmented colour. The finish is slightly pink and mega-nourishing – we can’t believe it’s only 14 quid. We’re stock-piling now.
