I just couldn't help but jump on the Kylie-Jenner-90's-nude-lip bandwagon. The controversy/buzz around Kylie Jenner's lips has been everywhere recently. I love the Kardashians, so I'd like to hope that Kris Jenner hasn't allowed her 17 year old daughter to get lip fillers, but to be honest I think she probably has. However, despite it being revealed that Kylie uses Mac's Soar lip pencil and Velvet Teddy lipstick to achieve the illusion of fuller lips, I was determined to dodge the high-end prices and search for some high-street equivalents.

Rimmel Lip Liner in Spice - This product has been the key to achieving this look. It's compatible with all of the lipsticks and can be worn alone for as a long lasting matte lipstick. After watching Pixiwoo's video, the way to over line your lips to make them look fuller - without looking like a clown or a drag queen - is to slightly over line the center of the bottom and top only. I have found that this technique really does work!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 08 - This has swiftly become one of my all time favourite lipsticks. I recently went clubbing where I lost this lipstick, my phone, my bag and my dignity consecutively throughout the night - and the first thing I did the next day was repurchase this lipstick [getting my priorities in order clearly haha]. This is more on the pinky scale of 90's nude, but is that perfect 'your lips but better' shade that you can throw on if you're in a rush. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Asia - I bought this after a Youtubers recommendation but I can't remember who. This is my least favourite, as I think it would suit paler skin tones or those with less pigmented lips. Because it's a lighter colour than my lips, I can make this work by covering my lips with the remainder of foundation on my brush and then applying it. 

L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in 320 - I recently had an interview in London for a luxury beauty brand recruiter and I'm proud to say I got the job! But after the interview I had 2 hours to kill before my new job's induction. I was in an area of London where there weren't any big shops to waste some time in, but I came across a little Boot's [possibly the oddest boots I've ever been in]. I couldn't work out whether this was a new shade or from a new collection because it was on offer, however it is the perfect 90's nude. It's very similar to the Kate Moss lipstick yet it's slightly more glossy.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - If you aren't brave enough for the over-drawn lips, but love the 90's nude trend, then this product is for you. It's the perfect dark nude colour, but sheer, easy to apply and easy to maintain. This has been a firm favourite of mine over the last few years and it's soon to be the first lip product I have ever used up. 

Natural Collection Lipstick in Biscuit - Last but not least is this gem from Natural Collection. It's the cheapest by a long shot and my favourite 90's nude. It's a brown toned nude and is a match made in heaven with the Rimmel 'Spice' lip liner. They have a 2 for £2.50 offer on Natural Collection so me being me bought another 2 of this lipstick [you never know, they might discontinue it, or I might lose one on another embarrassingly drunken night out] 

[I'm aware in these photos all the lipsticks look very similar, but in real life I promise they aren't!]

Hopefully this post has inspired some of you to try out the 90's nude lip and shown you that it's achievable on a tighter budget. If you have any suggestions of some Kylie Jenner inspired lip products then please let me know! I'm always on the hunt for more lipsticks and liners.
