Beauty Post - Cetuem Lipsticks

(Image Source:

So I just realised that I have become a bit of a lipstick collector hoarder. I just can't help myself, every time I MAC releases a new collection or every time I walk past a cosmetic counter, I just have to try out the new colours. Lipstick is one of those beauty essentials that you can wear alone and look drop dead gorgeous, no matter what type of lipstick you prefer, you will instantly feel more beautiful.

I recently found out about this brand called Cetuem and I recently purchased some of their lipsticks, their lipsticks are so rich with Vitamin E, so it is incredibly moisturising on the lips, the colour payoff is ok, you will need a few slicks to get a good colour payoff but it come in a huge range of gorgeous colours  which I love.

Beauty - Nude

(Natural Light)

I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for so long and and so I decided to share with you guys what I have accumulated over time and tell you what I think about them. To be honest I am still on the hunt for the prefect nude lipstick. 

1. Sleek - Liqeur
Lovely nude colour, it has a slight sheen to it that I don't like though

2. Mac - Viva Glam II (Satin)
One of my favourite of all my nude lipsticks, it has a satin finish so it is not drying at all. 

3. Mac - Nude (Matte)
This was part of the Riri Hearts Mac collection, I love the matte texture but I am not so keen on this colour. 

4. Mac - Modesty (Cremesheen)
This is my newest nude lipstick and my favourite in terms of colour, it is a shame that it is a creme sheen though because the colour payoff and lasting power is not great.I wish it has a satin finish. 

5. Mac - Hug Me (Lustre)
Hug me is such a classic nude that suits every skin tone. 

6. Mac - Touch (Lustre)
This was the first nude lipstick I ever bought and I actually only just dug this out for this post as I never use it anymore. The colour is great for dark skin tones but it is not for me. 

7. Mac - Pink Plaid (Matte)
Ok this isn't strictly a nude, its more of a pinky nude but it is my everyday go to lipstick. 

8. Mac - Snob (Satin)
Again, another pinky colour. Snob is too light for my skin tone but it is a great blending colour. I wear it with my Inglot nude lipliner and my Estee Lauder nude lipgloss. Makes a gorgeous colour. 

9. Revlon - Mauve it Over (003)
This is another gorgeous nude lipstick, nice colour but the finish is amazing, you will need quite a few slicks to get a good look though.
