The Inexpensive Pinky Nude Lip

I have never been the type to splurge on makeup... until celebrities like Kylie Jenner came along with the MAC lipstick obsession and I thought that I just had to have some! Well, I didn't. I just can't bring myself to buy products that are expensive. I knew I could find a colour that is a similar pinky nude shade for so much cheaper. Months later, I have succeeded! The perfect subtle lip colour that doesn't break my student sized bank.

Starting with lip liner... this is the Primark PS Lip Liner Pencil in the shade 01. It appears quite pink at first glance but has some subtle brown tones running through it, especially when applied on the lips. The consistency of these pencils are actually really well formulated, very much comparable to The Body Shop liners - which I personally love! At only £1, you really can't go wrong!

For the main lip colour, I used the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes. The perfect nude, brown, pink shade that is fab for everyday. It's almost the most closest shade to a 'my lips but better' colour. The formula isn't drying and is very comfortable to wear. I really love the finish of this product as it is more of a satin rather than a full on matte.

I'm sure you've heard a lot about these NYX lip colours as they have just launched in many Boots stores in the UK. Plus, liquid lipstick formulas are really having a moment in the blogosphere right now! Everyone can't seem to get enough of this trend and I most definitely see the hype.

This pink nude lip combination is only £6.50 (!!!!) I am so glad I didn't invest in a high end lipstick and lip liner duo and stuck to my guns with finding a cheaper alternative. So chuffed with this look!

What are your favourite pinky nude lip products?
