Collection : Nude Lipsticks (Part 1: Revlon,ELF,Maybelline) Short reviews+ Swatches

Hi friends, maybe some of you already know that i really obsessed with nude colors lipsticks and they are really be my all time HG. Nude lipstick is the color that i can confidently wear everyday. i can paired it with many eye makeup look, from neutral, smokey, even the colorfull one, and it's never looks fail on me. I have tried a lot of colors range selection from nude, red, pink, coral, berry, and plummy before, but nothing worked best on me except that nude color. i don't know, i felt like if i`m wearing the other colors i tend to look 5 to 10 years older haha.

Choosing the right nude shades is really tricky for some people. it's really depend on your skintone. the basic tips is : use your own creation to find the perfect colors that suit on you, try to mixing it with the other colors, as simple as that. i did this too, haha. i have medium skintone, and some of the nude lipsticks are look too pale on me, so i have to mixed it with the darker shade to find the perfect color. I
personally prefer the nude color with pink or neutral undertone. 
I have a bunch of nude lipsticks from different brands, both western or indonesian brands, but I only have one high-end nude lipstick from YSL right now and it's super awesome. I really want to expand my collection with the high-end brands  but they are just so pricey..hiks.. Maybe i`m gonna save my money to buy few of MAC lipsticks, because MAC have a good selection of the nude colors.
