If you're not a stranger to my blog and channel, you'll know I'm a sucker for abnormal and bold lip colours, but that doesn't mean I'm not as much of a lover of neutral lips as most other girls on the planet. Today I'm bringing you my five favourites - at least from my collection so far, anyway!

'SATIN MAUVE' BY ESSENCE | LIP LINER

I've gone on and on about the Essence lip liners in the last year, to the point that you're are probably sick of hearing about them - and I don't blame you. This is by far one of my favourite nudes, as it's mauve, grungey tones make me feel like I'm channelling ALL the 90s vibes - it would be rude to not pair it with a tattoo choker. These are available in stores and on Wilko's online for a mere pound a piece, and it's one of the least drying lip pencils I've ever come across. Whilst shades are limited, the majority of them are super soft, pigmented, mostly matte in finish and extremely long wearing - even when you don't slap a lippy over the top, which I never do. Even when they fade, they don't become patchy and uneven, and instead just slowly dilute in colour so you don't look totally ridiculous - bonus!

'#150' BY BARRY M | LIP PAINT

I know a lot of people find the Barry M Lip Paints to be a little on the drying side, but I assure you this one really isn't. It doesn't sacrifice on staying power or pigmentation, either, by being less drying. This is one of those true 'old but gold' shades, as it's probably the only nude lipstick I still own and wear to this day since having it since I was about 17/18! This certainly isn't a matte lippy and has a nice shine to it, without being as slick and short-wearing as the Satin Lip Paints line. It tends to lean towards being an orangey nude but it's more peach than orange, I think, and it has a brownish edge to it that's harder to pick up in photographs. This is a lipstick I'll repurchase again and again, as it has saved me on a hundred mornings where I can't find a lipstick to wear.

'PEACH PARFAIT' BY REVLON | LIP BUTTER

This is another favourite I've had in my make-up collection for quite some time, and is the first Lip Butter I ever bought. No matter how many other gorgeous colours there are in the line, this will always remain my favourite. It's the most stunning peachy-nude shade that has a stunning, subtle gold shimmer to it. My camera really cannot pick up the gold or do this colour justice, but it's noticeable on the lips in real life without making you look like a Christmas tree decoration, and is suitable for everyday wear. I feel like the glossy finish adds a real pout to my lip, which can be emphasised by my favourite lip gloss - NYX's Aqua Luxe Glam Gloss in VIP - and together they make a truly perfect pairing. Whilst it's not the longest wearing, it's lovely to wear as it's not drying, and it's not a tough one to top up on the go as it doesn't require a tediously precise application.

'GEMINI' BY JEFFREE STAR | VELOUR LIQUID LIPSTICK

First off, soz I'm so fucking bleached out in this photo. I don't know why I look extra vampire-like but it happened and I couldn't do much with it in editing without distorting the lip colour. But anyway, here's another line you're probably tired of hearing me talk about. The Velour Liquid Lipsticks by Jeffree Star are well-known and well-loved - and with good reason. These matte-drying babies set quickly and last for days providing you don't come in contact with oily foods. Long-wearing matte lippies aren't anything new - but did I mention how wonderfully non-drying they are? They come in a range of colours to suit everyone's tastes, plenty of nudes and bold statement shades alike. You can catch my full review of my first two of these lovely lipsticks here.

'TWIG' BY MAC | SATIN FINISH LIPSTICK

I've done a whole post on this lipstick which you can read here, but basically this has super quickly become one of my favourite nudes because of how comfortable it is to wear and how beautiful a shade it is. I described it as a brownish pink-nude in my original post, but I feel like it really has a mauve tone to it as well. Like most MAC lipsticks, the formula is extremely comfortable but not the most long-wearing, and for me this is another 'my lips but better' shade. It's definitely an opaque one that doesn't take much work, but I feel like longevity of the colour and the clarity of the lip line would be improved with the help of a matching lip liner - although I'm not in a rush to go out and buy one. It doesn't slide when I'm eating and drinking which is another bonus, so I don't need to be concerned that it's slipped halfway down my face afterwards!
