As we all know from earlier this week, the lighter than ever nude lip is a super hot trend for Spring. Imagine my excitement when I saw that retail_therapy had written her very own post featuring her favorite nude lipsticks!
I really like the colors she chose and it definitely tells me a lot about her skin tone. I also love this picture, because it totally looks like my workspace. I've got all kinds of makeup just a fingers reach away from my computer too!
We love hearing about our user's favorite makeup products, so please keep them coming! They're easy to do and we would be psyched to feature our favorites on FabSugar.
Nude lips have been a hot beauty trend over the last two seasons, but from the looks of all the new 2007 Spring makeup collections, the latest and greatest nude lip is lighter than ever. The vast array of pale beige glosses seem like they would only flatter olive complexions, but with all of the amazing bronzers available, anyone can achieve a super sexy light lip! Here are three lighter than ever nudes, I think you'll love just as much as I do! Also, for more favorite nude lip colors from retail-therapy, click here.
NARS Lip Gloss in Striptease, $23, is a light ivory/cream candlelight color that adds oodles of shine to a flawless face with a smoky or bold eye. This gloss can help to balance out any bold feature for that matter.
You can also add some luminizer to your cheeks and this neutral color will give you even more pop! Striptease can be worn alone or on top of any lipstick that you'd like to lighten and brighten.

With all the dazzle and dressing up during the holidays it's best to leave some things minimal, or rather, nude. When holiday parties abound, a nude lip whispers subtle femininity. This trend has been gracing the pouts of Hollywood, as seen in this weekend's Life & Style, as well as the Spring '07 runways, as beauty marked by CocoChic. This look is especially necessary when glamming up your eye makeup - to create balance and maintain a complete, not overtly made up, face.

When it comes to natural-looking lips, nude lip liners are a staple. They outline and define, as well as create depth and consistency. They can be worn with lipsticks and glosses or simply by themselves, filled in with a dab of Vaseline at the center of your lower lip. Here are the four classic must-have nude lip liners.
MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Spice is probably the most recommended lip liner of all time. It looks great on everybody, and it blends well with virtually any color of lipstick or gloss. It's no wonder the neutral pinky brown shade is a favorite among celebs. Buy it here for $12.50
Scott Barnes Lip Pencil in Barely Brown is like nothing I've ever tried. Its uniquely creamy texture makes it glide onto your lips like a lipstick would, and it creates a subtle and sheer line. Buy it here for $19.
