Make way for my new holy grail nude lipstick! I’m usually a berry/plum lip kinda gal but I’ve been on the hunt for a good nude lipstick for a while. I have now entered the real world and most days at work I can’t be bothered to maintain a bright lip! When I received this lipstick from The Balm in the shade Mai Billsbepaid* I was intrigued thinking this may answer my nude lipstick prayers!
I can happily say that I love this – the shade, formula and staying power are amazing! I pair this with their Pretty Smart lipgloss in BAM!* as they go together really well. Once the lipgloss wares off (it takes a while) the lipstick looks great and I find it doesn’t need topping up until after you’ve eaten lunch, sometimes even longer. The lipstick is definitely my favourite of the two, it applies really nicely, last for ages and is really moisturising on the lips.
Price-wise it isn’t the cheapest, but if you are used to buying Mac, this is slightly cheaper at £12. I’d definitely recommend them, of course I can only speak for this shade, but I’m lusting after a couple of others! Lipgloss-wise, I like this! I don’t often wear a lipgloss, mainly due to being lazy! But if you are into lipgloss, I’d definitely say give this a whirl!
