My top 5 natural lippies - Medium skin tone edition

Hi ladies

Today I'll be walking you through my top 5 (read only 5) natural lippies. I was going to a lipstick collection post but figured it'd be better to break it down into categories.

I added Asian/medium skin tone edition because 1) I am Asian 2) they look natural on me 3) they might not be as natural on lighter skin tones and may look concealer nude on darker skin tones. However, they are lovely colours and although they may look different on you, they might still be nice so check them out.

They are mostly muted/browny based pinks. I don't do concealer nudes. I think they look nice on some fairer skin tones but it's definitely a no no for me personally. 

4 out of 5 below are inexpensive too so that's always a bonus :)

ELF moisturising lip tint in Rose, Natural collection moisture shine in Biscuit,  MUA shade 11,  Clinique long last lipstick in Blushing nude & MyFace cosmetics in Gigabite Get ready (?) - 252

From top to bottom:
Natural Collection

How awkward, that they all look the same!

Clinique - Blushing Nude

This is really creamy, pigmented and the brownest based pink of the lot.

MyFace cosmetics - 252

I believe MyFace has been discontinued as I picked this up in a mega sale. It is almost a browny reddy colour which again is quite natural with my lip colouring.

MUA - shade 11

Not really sure what happened with the on lips swatch on the right. It's not glossy, more creamy. I love MUA lippies, fabulous for the bargainous price! It's pinkier than the others.

Natural collection - Biscuit

Sorry for the dodge application, mine has broken so it was hard to apply. This is sheer and quite glossy.

ELF moisturising lip tint - Rose

This is definitely a lot brighter than the rest and a true pink! However, as it's only a lip tint, adding a few swipes gives a nice natural look. You could build it up for lovely rosey lips.

Hope you enjoyed this post. Which category should I go for next?

Till next time...Toodles! :)
