Nude Pink Lips, Concoction Style

A few days ago, I was feeling particularly uninspired by the selection of pinks in my stash. It seems like there aren't very many nude pinks in there, and I needed one, just because sometimes a girl needs an amazing nude pink shade.

I found a couple by mixing and layering new and old favorites:

Dior Addict Extremes are actually super pigmented, and leaves quite a stain when I blot it off. For the above, I simply added a layer of Nude Peach (helps that the Lip Mist formula is sheer) over the blotted Plaza and I got myself a nude pink!

 Mixed Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crèmes in Purple Haze, Two Lips, Crème Caramel, and Sweet Crème 

One day soon I will show you my entire lip crème stash and you will understand why I constantly feel the urge to mesh them together. I described this concoction as a pink with just a little peach and iridescent shimmer.

And because this photo set is particularly cheekbone-y...

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Here's to a fantastic next half of the week.


  1. So pretty! I can't believe you're wearing 4 Lip Cremes in that one photo -- it doesn't look heavy at all and the effect you got is beautiful!

  2. Ahem but I think you may have taken some of my cheekbones. It's just not fair to have so much of it!!xD

  3. All of your lip combos are pretty - esp the lip creme one! I also really love your eye makeup. Very spring. Fairy-like. Fairy Wandz! *giggle*

  4. I absolutely love the final pink nude. This was such a great post; I feel like I can never find the right shade of lipstick or gloss. Sometimes I feel that gloss or lip creme can get messy, so what's your take on lip liner? Thanks again!

  5. You're like a brilliant mad scientist mixing up all your glosses and lipsticks--I love it! The looks you came up with are beautiful. I shall try my own little experiment this weekend :)

  6. So lovely! Suits you beautifully!
