Save, Spend or Splurge Sunday: Nude Lipstick

Hi lovelies,

So this week for my new Save, Spend or Splurge posts I wanted to look at nude lipsticks. I normally find that in the summer I prefer to go for the nude lip as opposed to those bright and vibrant colours. So I've picked three of my favourite nudes and different price tags so that there is one to fit every budget.

LtoR: Elf Runway Pink, Topshop Secret Admirer, Mac Creme Cup


So for the save option I have gone for ELF's Runway Pink, what I really love about this when applied to the lips looks very similar to Mac's Creme Cup and is a gorgeous pink kind of matte shade. The packaging of ELF products is great, the lipsticks come in a simple yet stylish black matte case which makes the lipstick look more than expensive than what it actually is. This is a great shade for everyday looks and can even be used for a night look with the addition of gloss. 

If you are on a budget this is a great lipstick as retails on the ELF website for £5.00 here.


Spend wise I have opted for a new product from Topshop's makeup line. When I saw the launch of Secret Admirer online I knew that I had to get my hands on this product. This warm nude is another perfect shade for the day, and comes in the adorable Topshop packaging. This is a really moisturising lipstick so it won't dry your lips out, and if you are a student you will have the added bonus of student discount.

Secret Admirer retails at £8.00 on the Topshop site


For the splurge there was only one contender in the run for nudes and that was Mac's Creme Cup. The packaging is very sleek and stylish with the signature bullet - which is great as it won't mark easily compared to some of the packaging of the lipsticks in my bag. The lipstick is a part of the Cremesheen range which means the formula is really soft and moisturising. I've found this has great lasting power on the lips and can be worn both day and night which makes it the perfect splurge.

Creme Cup is £14.00 on the Debenhams website here, which has gone up since the last time I got this lipstick. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, would you save, spend or splurge?
