Starting with the lip liner. Rimmel East End Snob was tricky to track down and I forgot about it. On a recent shopping trip they had one left so I finally got it. It really is the perfect pink shade which has nude tones in it. It is also cool toned and looks so good on. Something similar that is more of a baby pink is the Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Crayon in Minimalist. This feels a little more dry on but both feel comfortable with a lip balm underneath or with something layered on top.
Another lip liner which is similar to the Rimmel one is Essence in Satin Mauve. It's more nude and has less of that pink tone that I love. It's still a great lip liner and a flattering colour on. I would highly recommend Essence lip liners in general as they're affordable and really good quality. My favourite product to layer over either of the lip liners is the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey. This is very comfortable on the lip and although a little sheer on without the best wear time. However, when layered over Eastend Snob especially it creates a lovely nude, everyday colour. This combination is such a favourite of mine and the two together are really long wearing. Even through drinking a few too many lattes.

I have pretty much all four of these in my handbag and have been pairing them together a lot. My next job is to find a lipstick to match Eastend Snob perfectly. I've heard of a couple that do so a trip to Boots with lots of swatching is going to happen this week.
What are your favourite nude lip option? Do you prefer a pink or brown toned nude?
