the new favourite nude

As you are all aware a nude lip is something I take rather seriously. I have shared my opinions and swatches on my MAC picks here. Recently I have been wanting something pinker without going full saint germain, I had a little shop through my stash and found this baby - Illamasqua lipstick in Bare.
I purchased this just under a year ago at the store in Leeds when I was ironically looking for something pinker. My initial issue with this and the reason it's fairly untouched a year in is that it's so matte it's quite difficult to work with - think MAC Ruby Woo, however with a little Nuxe RDM underneath (this works so well as it is a matte finish) it looks and feels dreamy.
Described as a neutral pink chocolate by Illamasqua I don't have anything like this in my collection, its pink enough to be pink but no where near Barbie - perfection. Anyone wanting a grown up pink you have found just what you are looking for.

Now I must apologise I did try to get some photos of just my lips with this one but I struggled - hence the Iphone snap;

However here are the Illamasqua stock photos on a light and dark skin;
