Trend Alert: Mauve-Nude Lip

10/12/15


The latest lip trend, involves a brownish-mauve with a hint of grey. Since most of these options are either expensive, hard to find or difficult to wear, I wanted to show you my latest lip combo obsession which is drugstore pricing, easy to find and easy to wear! 
NYX is such a great brand when it comes to trying trend for less or even just getting products that work for less. I was really interested in getting a brown nude with a pink undertone, originally, I was going to pick up NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes but it looked too dark for my skintone to be a proper nude. So I looked into purchasing Abu Dhabi, which turned out to be a nice beige-brown nude with pink undertones. I also picked up the NYX Lip Liner in Mauve to put underneath Abu Dhabi. 


Lips filled in with NYX Lip Liner in Mauve and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi on top.
This combo gives me a great mauve-brown nude lip that I can wear day or night. I've worn it to work and on dates. At first, it's a little darker than your usual nude but it's not as vampy as Cannes or Copenhagen by the same NYX line. 

To be honest, you could even just use Mauve on its own if you wanted a muted mauve-colored lip and none of the additional brown tones. I've used mauve on it's own before and it's a perfect, and very versatile color. I recommend purchasing it even if you don't want to combine it with anything else. At $3.49USD a pop for the lip liner and $5.99USD for the Soft matte lip creams, these are both a steal! 

What's your favorite Fall nude? Have you tried either of these products?
