The Brand That's Making Me a Lipstick Convert

In general, I am someone who just cannot get away with wearing lipsticks. It always has seemed like my lips were just not made for them - my lips seem to be perpetually dry, and most lipstick formulas thus far have just not meshed well with my problematic lips. So with that being said, you know that when I say I found a lipstick that works genuinely well for me it's a big deal. But that's exactly the case with the unbelievably stunning lipsticks from the Australian brand Nudus.

I'd been hearing raves about this green brand for some time now, but it's taken me awhile to try it for myself and see what all the fuss was about. After trying out three beautiful shades from the brand for the past few weeks now, I'm seriously kicking myself for not trying them sooner. The formula is perfection, containing a plethora of good for you ingredients such as vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, antioxidants and cold pressed oils (including pomegranate, raspberry and kiwi). Each lipstick is the perfect balance of being super moisturizing while remaining strongly pigmented, and I couldn't be more impressed with the results.

I've been trying out three shades from the line and have found myself rotating through each of them almost daily now. The first shade is Fairy Tales*, a lovely orange-pink coral shade that's perfect for summer (you can see it at the bottom of the above photograph). I really love coral shades during the summer as I find they bring the perfect amount of color while bringing some warmth to your face. This particular coral is a perfect balance of orange and pink and I think it would suit a variety of different skin tones.

Next up is Survivor*, a wonderful hot pink magenta that can be worn either sheer or built up for a seriously pigmented pout. Between this and Kjaer Weis' Rapture* I've been really loving wearing a bit of hot pink these past few months. The color is seriously stunning and the pigmentation payoff is on point - I love wearing this one with a more neutral blush color (or even just a bit of bronzer) and rocking a bold lip. This has been my go-to recently for nights out, where I'll wear a few layers of this bad boy paired with relatively minimal face makeup.

Finally there's 27 Kisses* which is a beautiful mauve nude, a shade that I honestly cannot get enough of and have been wearing daily these past few weeks. I've seen this one written about on dozens of different blogs, touted as the perfect everyday neutral, and I cannot think of a better way to describe it. You know when people (like myself) overuse say that something is "your lip color but better"? Well they're talking about this guy. It's one of those year-round use, neutral shades that even non-lipstick wearers would adore. I've already made a bit of a dent in the lipstick from my daily use, and I know that I will be immediately repurchasing it as soon as I run out.

Have you guys tried any Nudus lipsticks? I'd love to hear any shade recommendations for what to try next!
