Hi!

I know there are MANY great nude lipsticks out there, I use MAC ones (mainly Myth), I usually blend it with other colors or add a colored lip gloss because its too pale on me on its own.

I've been looking for a nude/peachy/orangey one to be worn on its own for a long time now, all of the ones I tried on are on the nude/pinky side.

Advice and suggestions are appreciated!

TIA!

I'm a big fan of NARS Belle du Jour - it is nude but with a [not 'too orange'] peachy kick.

Freckletone seems promising! I wish it was in the satin formula though.. My lips are pretty pigmented and I feel the lustre formula is too sheer for me, do you know of similar color in the satin formula?

Thanks alot!

I mix two-MAC Sheen Supreme Bare Again and MAC Hue. You get a peachy nude result.

Unfortunately, I couldn't give you a MAC Satin suggestion - maybe if you did something like Tanarama (which might be too brown, but it would blank out the lips enough) then top with something like Florabundance gloss; though that would kill the Satin quality. Even something like one of the PRO Lip Erase products with a nude gloss, but even that would kill any satin...

Maybe Fleshpot? It's PRO but it's definately peach-nude and I'm 90% sure it isn't a Glaze, Lustre or Cremesheen

Have you checked out NARS Pure Mattes? I find they go on like MAC Satin's - not nearly as dry as MAC Matte or Revlon's Mattes. Bangkok & Tashkent probably wouldn't have enough peach; BUT they do release Pure Mattes with the collections. Guaranteed, they've probably had a nude peach in the PM formula.

Today I'm wearing MAC "All Revealing" lipstick under MAC's "Richer, Lusher" gloss with MAC "oak" liner. I find that it makes a nice hint-of-orange, nude-ish neutral for my skintone.

I'm fair skinned with light brown hair.

Dior Silhouette is exactly that! It's from their Addict Extreme lipstick line.

Have you seen some of the nudes in the current MAC collection "heavenly Creature"? They have Cut a Caper (repromote), Pleasure Seeker (repromote) and the new one, Cusp of Dawn.

Temptalia has great swatches:

http://www.temptalia.com/mac-heavenl...hotos-swatches

I know I've seen some other great nudes lately too. I'll be back if I remember them! They could be from upcoming collections but I know I've seen some. Possibly in the upcoming MAC Marilyn Monroe one that comes out in October or something,

EDIT: Yes. It's in the upcoming Marilyn Monroe MAC collection and it's described as a "Warm nude" and is called "Pure Zen"

I have a a picture with some swatches on paper. 3rd swatch down. Sorry it's not a great photo but there's not much leaked into the public domain yet, but I believe from what I've heard, it's a gorgeous nude. I never really wear nudes other that MAC Spirit which is similar to my natural lip colour.

Thanks alot for all that great info!

I took a look at temptalia and as usual case, all colors look gorgeous and nice and peachy when swatched but appear more pink when applied.. sigh.. I know this has to do with the natural lip color.. I guess applying concealer before the lipstick would help bring out the real color of it, but that unfortunately dries my lips out...

Edit: I just noticed that Yash is a LE..
