When it comes to nudes you all know I love them. I am such a basic person when it comes to makeup lol I love neutral makeup so much but it makes sense as my overall style is very classic and at times plain. I am not going to feel bad about it and have learned to embrace it. I do love bold colors once in a while and adore them on others even more.
Here are some new Nude Lipsticks I am loving. I know with Covid and masks lipstick may be bit obsolete but with zooms and just wanting to feel better all around you won’t regret these! I go back and forth with different shades of nudes that I love. For a while I loved pinky nudes. Then I went into a rich mauve phase but now I love a more light brown/pinky nude.

You all know I love MAC Lipsticks and Fall. So it only seemed right to come up with my most loved MAC Nude Lipsticks that work perfectly for the fall. Please note these shades do vary (even though they look the same LOL!) and nude lipstick is a preference and these are just my preference. For my skin tone I prefer a nude that is not too dark and not too light. I also like a good mix of Pink and Brown tones. Lets just jump right in to the swatches and lipstick details!
Burnt Spice: Creamy Dirty Rose – Matte Retro Liquid Lip
As you can see I have a type! All are in the beige family with a bit of pink and mostly matte. I typically love a good glossy nude lip but there is something special about a Matte Lipstick for the fall. The first three are classic shades that get so much recognition. However spirit was one I found from swatching shades at the MAC Counter. I never hear anyone talk about this. Why? She is such a beauty!!
What lipsticks to you reach for in the Fall?

Who doesn’t love a good Nude Lipstick? We seem to be constantly looking for our perfect match. Sometimes they are too pink, too brown, don’t look right for our skin tone ect but when you find the one or few you love it is worth celebrating lol! I wear nude lipstick a lot and own a ton from multiple brands that I use and do adore. However these 6 are the ones that are the most loved and the most reached for.
For reference I am light / medium in skin tone and my skin runs a bit neutral. I prefer a more brown tone nude lipstick with a bit a of pink at times. That is my personal preference. Like I have said on my Instagram many times, nudes are very personal. Us Makeup lovers take them very seriously lol I also think it also depends on what shade of lipliner you use with it. You can always change the shade up too with adding in a darker/lighter liner. Just play around and have fun with what you have! But if you are looking to buy a new nude or add to your collection you can not go wrong with these 6 below. Especially if you are close to my skin tone and have similar preferences!
Nude Lipstick Favs:
Swatches Top to Bottom – Click on the name to shop!
BLANKETY: Soft Pink Beige (amplified) – $18.50MAC COSMETICS This is the nude I consider my perfect nude. Its not too pink and not too brown. I do prefer a bit more brown these days but I still reach for this over and over. Sometimes pairing it with MAC Stripdown gives it that push of brown I may be looking for depending on my makeup that day.
NUDE KATE: Light Pink Tone Nude (satin) – $34.00Charlotte Tilbury I know her products can be pricey but almost everything I have tried and used is beautiful. I wanted to try her lippies and saw this shade on a wedding tutorial for a perfect nude lip and knew I had to have it. Its perfect!
GOOD TIMES: Warm Beige Nude (velvet matte) – $27.00NARS Cosmetics This came in PR and I was instantly drawn to this shade. Its my most recent nude find and to be honest I have not stopped using it since it arrived. This formula is amazing! Matte yet creamy and lasts!
TIP TOE: Cool Toned Nude (Cream ) – $7.50 Colourpop Cosmetics My affordable wonder!!! This nude is a perfect blend of pink and brown and this formula is to die for. Soooo buttery and creamy. Do not sleep on Colourpop they not only offer so many products at an affordable price but they have tons of NUDES!!!!
STARK NAKED: Light Nude – (comfort matte) – $19.00Urban Decay I received this in PR as well and I knew I wanted to wear it immediately because Melissa Alatorre loves it and her makeup style is so similar to mine. Been using this since I got it over a year ago!
CLOUDS IN MY COFFEE: Dusty Nude Pink (comfortable matte) – $22.00 MAC Cosmetics ON SALE FOR $13.20 (see more Liptensity swatches HERE) Another one Melissa Alatorre made me fall in love with! Kept watching her use it so I bought it! The liptensity line is perfection! The formula is extremely pigmented and so creamy!!! For the first release I received the shades and love sooo many nudes and reds from this line. The 2nd release of shade extensions I did not receive in PR but I knew I needed Clouds In My Coffee and I am as happy as can be with this purchase!
Are any of these nudes in your collection? Any that you want to add in after this post? I truly hope this helps if you are looking for some new nudes. Each and every one of these are loved deeply! Like I said I use tons of different nudes from multiple brands but these 6 are in constant rotation and reliable for many looks. What are some of your top nudes you wear daily? I would love to hear what you are loving so I can try them myself!

Mac Powder Kiss Lipstick: Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft-focus colour, this weightless moisture-matte lipstick was developed to replicate a backstage technique: blending out edges of matte lipstick for a hazy effect. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm – maccosmetics.com
Sometimes matte lipsticks can feel too dry and make our lips looked cracked and old. Meet MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick. The formula feels like you have on a lip balm. I do not know how they did this but WOW. This new lipstick formula is extremely comfortable on the lips. As I was swatching them they went on smooth and easy. Like your lips, when you swatch very matte lipsticks they do not swatch great. The red shades caught my attention right away. Style Shocked reminds me of a subdued Lady Danger. This shade is the perfect shade if you are new to a bold lip. Many of the more “bold” colors are.
As a disclaimer I did go back and forth a couple times for my swatches but they are pigmented and not sheer! I just wanted to get my swatch to look a bit straight and not super messy. On the lips these look exactly how they are described. However they can be worn as a more sheer look and very buildable. So much to love about this formula! I would say as you should with all lip products make sure to scrub your lips and prep them before hand. My lips are a bit chapped and were not prepped and you could see a lot of those lines when I was trying them out.
I highly recommend these as the formula is something I have never seen or experienced before. Hope you enjoy the swatches below and let me know in the comments if you plan to grab 1 or 3 shades lol! Shop the lippies HERE.

Red Lips are classic. They can be worn everyday or can be glam for a night out. Wearing red lips is fairly new to me. I was always afraid of wearing a bold lipstick and now its a must have for me!

This post is going to give you 9 shades with different finishes and tones of red.

“An ultra balmy fluid infused with nourishing ingredients and opalescent microspheres for a youthful glow that looks lit from within. This sheer tinted cream can be used under or over foundation, or to bring a translucent luminosity to skin. The cushiony, smoothing texture glides over skin, diminishing the look of imperfections and fine lines, while moisturizing and protecting skin. Skin looks immediately retouched!” – Ulta Website
I know MAC Next To Nothing Foundation is almost old news now considering the beauty world is always producing new products but I still wanted to get my thoughts out. In addition to making sure swatches are present online as it truly helps me choose what my shade may be! Who else searching for foundation swatches online?? Anywho this foundation is not for those who want full coverage or even medium coverage. You can use it in addition to your full coverage foundation to create a dewy look but if you want a one and done deal this is not for you.
Lets just get to the point, does this give you an instant instagram filter? Yes for me it does! I do have some redness on my skin but other than that I do not need a ton of coverage nor do I want a full coverage look. This foundation is perfect for everyday, for mixing with other foundation or even younger girls just starting to get into makeup.
Benefits Per Ulta’s Website:
Provides instant radiance
Features a comfortable, creamy formula
Immediately improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles
Visibly refines skin texture
Smoothes and softens skin
9 shades available (Swatches from Top To Bottom) – Shop the Line HERE
Light – Pale Ivory
Light Plus – Light Beige
Medium – Warm Beige
Medium Plus – Light Tan Beige
Medium Dark – Carmel Beige
Medium Deep – Rich Golden Tan
Dark – Deep Carmel
Dark Plus – Neutral Tan Beige
Dark Deep – Rich Deep Bronze
There are other products that were released with the Foundation as a MAC Next To Nothing family if you will. Those items were a Foundation Brush, Powder Brush and Pressed Powders to set the foundation. The powder sets your face in a very natural way that is not to cakey and the brushes work well with both products but are not necessary if you want to just purchase this foundation to try! Again this foundation is perfect for everyday or a natural look or if you have a matte foundation you love that you want to add a bit of radiance in it you can mix it to create a dewy look. Have you tried this foundation? Sound off in the comments!!!

I wanted to give you all a run down of the MAC Cosmetics X Macy’s Meet and Greet in case you could not attend or join in on the live demo on Instagram! First and foremost I want to Thank all the amazing and very talented people over at MAC and Macy’s on State Street who gave me this honor. You all were incredibly welcoming and so fun to hang out with! For all my Chicago followers if you are in the area please make sure to check out this location for your MAC Cosmetics and beauty needs!
The guests and I had so much fun just talking about MAC products we love and why we love them, shared tips and talked and talked and talked all night, all things beauty! One guest loved my makeup that night and wanted to know how I get a natural looking makeup application. We grabbed some of my must have MAC Products along with suggestions from the MAC artists for her skin tone and started a live demo on my Instagram Stories where I discussed why I love these products, shared beauty tips and answered questions.
Clarissa created a natural look that had a smokey eye that can be worn during the day with a nude lip but adding a pop of color on the lips gives the look a stamp of glam approval. Not only did Natasha love the way her makeup looked but she loved the way it felt! She doesn’t wear a ton all the time so I felt it was important for her to try some of my fav MAC MVP’s that are fool proof in my opinion. This is what many of the guests talked about, natural looking makeup that gives a “this is me but better than me look” Too many steps and products can be very intimidating and even though I am a “Beauty Blogger” I am an everyday woman who doesn’t have a ton of time to get ready and myself can be intimidated at times with too many steps (insert the perfect smokey eye… gets me everytime lol)
Eye Shadow all over lid was Brown Script and the rest of the eye was created with MAC Warm Palette (Clarissa said she loves it for travel because every shade you can possibly need is there – yep this is added to my MAC wish list)
Fix Plus Spray – This is just a must always. Like I said there and I will say it now, I literally bathe in Fix Plus! LOL!!!!
Before & After Shots:
Thank You so much to all my followers and guests that came to the event and joined in on Instagram Live. Your support and sweet comments in my DM’s means so much and I truly enjoy interacting with you daily on all things beauty! I am testing out some new MAC products and wanted to give you the run down. Please let me know if you have tried these and what you are loving right now from MAC.

Well it is officially Fall to me even though its 90 degrees in Chicago this week. I am very much ready for a pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, 60 degree days and a deep nude or vampy lip! In the recent years I have been changing up my makeup by seasons and have so much fun with it! Whether its a bright orange lipstick for summer or darker toned lips for fall, I love playing with lipstick. When it comes to Fall makeup nothing screams it more than a MAC Vamp Lipstick. They can seem intimidating but berries and deeper purples can look gorgeous with a toned down makeup look. MAC has many more options than these but these are some classic MAC Vamp Lipstick options. Enjoy!!!

Just like a red lip, you have to find a shade that works for you and one you are comfortable with. By just looking at the tube some look so much darker than they are so make sure to swatch and have fun with this trend! The MUA’s at MAC are always helpful with choosing the best shade and don’t forget there are tons of options at the drugstore for those who are just trying out this look or on a budget.
What is your go to look for Fall? Do you like to rock a vampy lip? Let me know in the comments below.
