What to Pack: Remember the Nudes

A good nude lipstick is the ultimate travel companion. Find out what we (and therefore you) are loving right now.

From day to night, a nude lipstick goes with every smokey eye, boardroom look and dazzling outfit. Many say that it is a splash of red lipstick that adds the heat, but we believe there is nothing fresher, more endearing and simply divine than the right shade of nude. When travelling, there is nothing easier than a smattering of a lighter lipstick. Gone is the stress of checking your make up every 5 minutes, or worried it's all over your face after you've eaten. You'll look perfect and pristine all summer long. No matter the skin tone, there is a nude to suit everyone. From peach to blush to peony the possibilities are endless. We've picked the products that are making us want to strip down to our nudes right now. 

Estée Lauder, Pure Color Love Lipstick

This new 27 piece collection is beautiful. The tones are just right and the consistency isn't too dry on the lips. With an angled edge, it is even possible to apply without need to use a liner. With three striking finishes (ultra mattes, shimmer pearls and edgy cremes) it is possible to mix lipsticks to get the look you want. Though the range of colours expands well beyond just nudes, the lighter hues are just beautiful. This is the nicest lipstick we have seen in a while. From the application, longevity and comfortable feel on the lips, it is ideal for holidays, all day wear and even brides to be. If you want to buy online click here.

MAC, Fruity Juicy


A vibrant addittion to the repertoire, MAC's whole Fruity Juicy collection is a beautiful range of products to get you excited for the summer. From coconut scented primers to dazzling eye palettes, the colours are mesmerising. But back to the lipsticks, two of the three they have released are in delectable shades of nude. The first, a beauty cult classic, 'Shy Girl' that comes in a creamy neutral coral-beige like colour and 'Calm Heat' which is more of a mid-tone nude. We would reccomend 'Calm Heat' for a darker skin tone and 'Shy Girl' for the fairer girls. After all, you don't want your lips to end up looking like the same colour as the rest of your face...we know you know what we mean!
