The Perfect Nude Lip feat. MAC "Hue" Lipstick

Hey Guys! So we all know I love those natural, earthy colours when it comes to makeup so it will be no surprise to you all that more often than not I am rocking a nude lip. To me the beauty of a nude coloured lip is that it goes with anything from the most intense smokey eye look to the barely there look and for me it is one of the most classic looks going.
So I thought today I would share with you all how I get my perfect nude lip. Of course these products wont work for everyone because not everyone has the same colour of eyes or the same under tones to their skin but never the less I think this will be helpful to a lot of people.
The products I use are
Mac Lipstick In "Hue" £15
It is a glaze finish which means it is slightly sheerer than other Mac formulas but is still incredibly pigmented. It is an absolutely gorgeous colour and I think it is definitely worth the investment. It goes on extremely well and I find I don't even need to use a mirror when applying which is always a bonus especially when you are in a rush. The only slight down side I would say is the longevity of it as it could be better however this is only a minor annoyance and as it's so fantastic in every other way I don't mind having to apply it every 3 hours or so.
Max Factor Color Elixir lip liner in "Pink Petal" £4.99
The lip liner I use when doing a nude lip is by Max Factor and it's a really good lip liner in my opinion. It's waxy enough that it stays put for hours (no reapplying this in the bathroom) but is still creamy enough to be comfortable enough to wear everyday all day. 
And that's it! I don't personally put a gloss over the top because I don't think an overly glossy lip looks good on me. There are also amazing drugstore nude lipsticks but these are the products I would use for my "Perfect" nude lip. Hope you enjoyed the post!

I purchased all the products mentioned above with my own money and all opinions are my own, as always.

My No.1 Spot Treatment and GIVEAWAY WINNER!

Hey Guys! So yes it has been 2 weeks and yes I am a terrible blogger but I hope you will all forgive me (again lol) so the winner of my 50 follower giveaway is This Girly Geek so well done! If you get in contact with me via email (or post your email address in the comments/ reply to the comment I posted to your blog) which you will find under the contacts tab we will be able to arrange me sending your prizes to you.
On a separate note I thought I would bring you guys a post on my all time favourite spot treatment!
The witch blemish gel is absolutely amazing! I'm sure many of you will have heard of the blemish stick from witch something that has had many rave reviews on various blogs as well as youtube. I have to say however this is much much better! First of you get more product which is always a bonus as its better value for money. 
Secondly I feel that it is 100% more hygienic! The stick meant that you used it have to either rub it directly on a spot or get in a right old mess trying to apply it with hands. Yet with this you just squeeze out the amount needed and apply where it is needed.
 It works practically over night for me and in most instances the spot is entirely gone in about 3 days (as long as I don't mess with it e.g. try to pick at it ewww I know).
At less than £4 it is an absolute steel and will last you for aggggges! I honestly cannot praise this product enough!
Anyways I hope you are all well and shall post again soon!
