    • Before I answer your question, I love your blog. It’s so cute.

      I’m a sucker for nudes and pinks, so I have a few suggestions.

      I really like the nude shown within my post, JouerMoisturizing Lip Gloss in Nude Glisten.
      You can also try, VIVA GLAM Gaga 2 lipgloss, it’s a creamy light neutral. Here’s the link:
      You can also try Dior Addict high shine in 214- nude silhouette.
      Nars also has some great stuff. I like the following shades, Belize and Chihuahua.
      If you’re looking for a lipstick try, Smashbox in Charming (nude pink).
      Hope this helps.

      • Thank you!!! I love yours too. I love your look of the day – great idea!

        Ohh I need to try some! Thanks for the suggestions. I’m a HUGE fan of NARS at the moment. Anything in Orgasm I am all about. 🙂 But, I need to expand my horizons.

  1. You have given me sooo many ideas and I adore you for it girl lol. I LOVE lip gloss but never are sure which way I should go. I normally just choose MAC Lipglass but I will be trying these other selections. Wonderful post.

  2. Hey Kay,

    Thanks for the comment girl. It’s funny that you mention MAC. They have a shade called “Pretty Please”, it’s my favourite lipstick. I probably own 3 of them. I adore the colour, it’s a light, pale pink. It’s sutble and lovely.

  3. I LOVED this post… I guess I also have a huge love for lipgloss so it makes sense that I would love this post. I am such a pale/nude lip lover.. ahh!
