Nars Cruising/Sara Happ Ballet Slipper

The NUDE Lip

A nude lip doesn’t usually work for me, but I love it anyway.  In an effort to pump up the natural pout I turn to this gloss and lipstick combo.  Bridgette Bardot is my nude lip icon.

Here is my current Favorite (Lipstick and Gloss) for that undone lip look.  (I have a different favorite for a Matte nude).  I am a huge fan on NARS, and their lipsticks do not disappoint.


My current favorite is Nars Cruising. For me it is the perfect colorless color.  It evens out the tone of my lips, and is a comfortable and wearable texture.  It is opaque but still provides a nice sheen.

Below is natural.


With Nars “Cruising”

It is just a touch darker than my natural lip and creates even appearance.



With Sara Happ “The Ballet Slip”

Compliments the lipstick adding shine and depth.


Sara Happ “The Ballet Slip” is thick, and stays on as well as other glosses in the “Prestige” category.  The wand in an unusual shape (Sort of bulbus on the end) which allows for quick application.

I am usually a colored lipstick woman, but every now and then I go with a nude lip to feel a bit more Bardot.

Do you have a nude lip that works best for you?

Please share!

Sending love to you and yours,
