Nude Lips

I've been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for a very long time! It's hard to find a nude lipsticks that flatters your skin tone and doesn't wash out your face or make you look like you've been eating powdered donuts!

Recently I've hit the jackpot in my search.

Tip: Lip liner makes the colors transition better with your skin and helps you customize the color.
I pair my lipsticks with mauve and brown lip pencils to obtain the perfect nude lip.

Peep my nude favs below:

 (Left to Right)

Lipsticks: Maybelline "Touchable Taupe", MAC "Freckle Tone", MAC "Hug Me", Revlon "Mink" & Revlon Colorburst "Coy"
Liners: "Nutmeg", "Nude Truffle" & "Medium Brown" (All by NYX)

My favorite of these so far is MAC "Hug Me"! It's an everyday, creamy nude and I can't get enough of it.

  • MAC Velvet Teddy
  • MAC Twig
  • MAC Snob
  • MAC Shy Girl
  • MAC Myth
  • MAC Jubilee
  • MAC High Tea
  • All of the Maybelline "The Bluffs" Lipsticks
Oh yeah, I bought MAC Mocha and returned it the very next day, it was too orange for my skin.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to leave me some lipstick suggestions below!

Food Adventures | Twist

I decided to go on another food adventure (when I eat somewhere that's not one of my routine favorite spots). One of the things I love about Atlanta is the variety of restaurants!

We went to Twist in Phipps Plaza and the food was different and yummy. We ate outside, which I love to do, it was a great experience.

 I had crab cakes and Twist macaroni and cheese. I loved the crab cakes, the macaroni and cheese...not so much.

Babe had duck breast and of course I ate his food and mine! I can't wait to go back and try some of the other dishes they have.
