The perfect drugstore pinky nude lipstick

It’s all about the perfect nude. We may move through cycles during the year from a bright lip in the Summer months through to darker plum tones in the Autumn, but a constant is the Nude lip. It’s classic, feminine, understated and sophisticated.

I have an ever growing collection of nude lipsticks and I always have one in my everyday make bag as my go to lip colour.

I stumbled upon this Soap & Glory Super Mother Pucker Matte Lipstick on a recent drugstore visit and picked up the colour Blush Pink.

IMG_5499For me, this is exactly what I’m looking for in a nude lipstick. It’s a warm mauve nude with lilac undertones and provides a beautiful alluring colour. I’m still tanned from my Winter Sun break at the moment and I think it compliments my colouring beautifully.

The formula is also exactly what I want from a matte lipstick, smooth and moisturising rather than drying and waxy.


IMG_5529 I have sensitive lips that always seem to dry out in record time, especially when I’m wearing a matte lip product, but the formula of the Soap & Glory lipstick is creamy and nourishing and I haven’t had any problems with dried out lips.

IMG_5533IMG_5501IMG_5502Like any beauty product you’re spending money on, the packaging and look and feel of the product is really important and I think Soap & Glory have done a brilliant job with transforming this drugstore product into a luxurious product with sleek packaging that could rival some high end brands.

IMG_5522IMG_5524I’d definitely classed this as a ‘your lips but better’ tone and I think it is a really versatile shade. The range of colours available was also really impressive and I could see myself wearing each and every one of the shades available which is something I’ve never achieved before with brand. I’m excited keep using this and expand my collection of Soap & Glory products.

What is your go-to nude?
