Ask Around: When It Comes to Lips… Nude or Color?

Check out the tutorial for this look here.

When it comes to lipstick, the possibilities are endless. Nowadays there are so many shades, textures and finishes on the market, there’s a perfect match for everybody! But often I get asked:

When it comes to lips, are you going for nude or color?

Although I may love busting out the craziest, brightest colors for my videos. On a daily basis I’m a nude at heart. A MAC Lipstick in “Hue” at heart to be exact. No really, in my opinion that’s the most flattering nude for almost all skin tones!

What also contributes to my love for nude lips, is that my natural lip color is very, very pigmented. It’s like I’m wearing a softly blotted, red lipstick day in, day out. So whenever I get the option to go for a lighter feel, I’m more than happy to see my mouth dressed in nude for a bit.

How about you? Are you a nude or colored lip lover? What is your favorite nude lipstick? And what is your favorite colored lipstick? Share in the comments below!

    Color all the way! MAC Heroine, Candy Yum Yum, Russian Red,……..
    For nude I like Nude Delight by Rimmel London :D

  2. Zane says:

    I too am a nude girl! Those coloured lips are too high maintenance for me, and I tend to forget I have it on and when I get home and see myself in the mirror I wonder if this is what I looked like all day. LOL

  3. Hannelie says:

    Ik ga het liefst voor kleur! Soms een hele dag, of soms om mijn look na het werk wat frisser te maken.
    Mijn favoriete lipsticks: Chanel Rouge Coco in Lune Rousse en Chanel Rouge Allure in Pirate. Dekken goed en blijven mooi zitten.

    COLOR! Think nude is always… boring. or maybe is just beacuse of my skin, because im white but im not pale so i feel i look like one of the jersey shore =S

  5. Ziggy Lo says:

    Over time my preference changed – I would always go for nudes because I thought my lips were too full to pull off bright colors. I guess I didn’t want to attract any attention to my mouth or myself in general, because I’m tall, lol -But, now I’m all for ze bright colors, especially during the summer time. I only wear nudes in the professional environment where neon pink is frowned upon, haha- Otherwise, bring on the bright colors and vampy reds.

  6. Tanja says:

    I’m in the coloured fraction- I love a good bright matte lipstick! :D I own exactly one nude (Kinda Sexy by MAC), everything else in my collection is a lot more colourful! I’m really loving the purples right now, so I’m thrilled that MAC’s Heroine was made permanent now! :)

  7. Susi says:

    Colour… of cause…maybe because i’m very light and have purple hair i only like a lot of colour in my face and i hate nude lipsticks on me :)

  8. Joni says:

    After a long time of (almost) only wearing nude lip products, I’m now really into colour! :)

  9. Samantha says:

    I’m more into light, cool toned pinks. I just feel like they look best on me. Also obsessed with lilac lippies.

  10. Dawn says:

    I have to say the nudes look best on me… im very fair with dark hair and i just cant find a bright color that looks good on me… so i stick with nudes and pinks….i love Mac Hue and all the light pink shade glosses by Tanya Burr, such as First Date and Afternoon Tea :)

  11. Isabela Morais says:

    Color, for sure!
    All shades of red, specially hahahahha
    I do have one nude lipstick, but is a national brand, I’m brazilian :D
    And my favorite colored lipstick is also from that brand, but is really similar to MAC’s Russian Red.
    I’m really into Flat out Fabulous and Heroine right now :)

  12. Tinas Lounge says:

    Color for most days like Lancôme Rouge in Love 181N Saint Honoré. I love this color so much.


  13. Lucinda says:

    During the workweek I mostly rock a tinted lipbalm or chubby stick, but when I think about it, they are rarely nude, almost always a hint of purple or red colour. I just love a hint of colour as my skin is very white like yours and I like that pop of colour, how subtle it may be. xxx

  14. Alexis says:

    What are those 2 colors that you have pics of next to the video? That red and pinky one? They’re gorgeous!

  15. Hao says:

    I’m all about colored lipsticks! I do have one or two Nude or MLBB lipsticks, but I only wear those for job interviews or no-makeup makeup days.

  16. Sara says:

    I love wearing a lot of colors on my eyes so I usually go for nude lips.

  17. Anissa Knight says:

    On a day to day basis, i’m definitely a nude girl. My favorite being “Kinda Sexy” by MAC. But after work, I am very much a bright, fun matte girl…Candy Yum Yum/Heroine (MAC) mash up being a personal fav!!!

  18. Judyta says:

    Color. Even when I don’t want to use bright colours, I go for “mine-but-better”, never truly nude.

  19. Julie says:

    A sheer color on the lips (dark pink) is my usual look.

  20. Mulaty says:

    Nooit een nude, rood of coral of mlbb. Waarom zou je de kleur uit je lippen weg halen en vervangen voor iets wat je doods lijkt te maken. Nee ik snap die nude voorkeur niet.

  21. Amirah says:

    I’m usually not a lipstick person so when I do wear lipstick I would go for colour,especially reds!

  22. Sofia says:

    I like color and nude lipsticks. It really depends on how I have my eye make-up. But usually during Summer I tend to use bright colors for my lips. Btw. you look stunning:)

  23. Eileen says:

    When it comes to choose a lipstick there’s no doubt… colour is the way! Here in Italy we have Kiko, and that’s a kinda drug for me :) However, in summer i prefer to rock on my lips brilliant colours as orange, coral, bright fuchsia and so on. That’s just the easiest way to get “the look” when out there sultriness is just like in the Amazon Rainforest!!

  24. Linda says:

    I love wearing colored lips, but when I’m going to work, I love to put on plaid pink by MAC. But if i’m going out, I put on the brightest pink I can find :) So I can’t decide!! :(

  25. Cora Mulhall says:

    I’m more of a girl who would wear no lipstick (except for special occasions) I have very dry lips especially when I wake up in the morning can u Plz recommend a cheap product PLZZZZ nikkie thnx


  26. Joy says:

    I dearly WISH I could get more into colored lipsticks, but I really cannot. Nude all the way.
