For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.
So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?
Dior Vernis in Grege
I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast. It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you. See it applied on the nails.
MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring
This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin. The quality is nice for the price, too. Swatches.
Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe
This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe. Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.
MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Ambitious

The promo images are a real eye candy and the shades of this collection are a true summer feast, bright vibrant and juicy: pinks, corals, tans and all variations of green and blue.

I personally really like the old Dior Addict glosses, so I have big hopes for this new version of the Addict Glosses.
The face of the range is Daphne Groeneveld and you can see the results of the collaboration below.
The new glosses are promised to give “astounding shine and supreme comfort, all thanks to advanced technology which envelopes the lips in a uniquely fine, non-sticky film.” The gel formula contains high percentage of hyaluronic acid spheres so it should be also hydrating, glossy and shiny.
There are 24 shades divided into three groups: The Shimmer, The Pearly and The Pure.
Besides that, there are four It Shades:

Before I start, I have to say that it was very hard to narrow my list of favourite makeup products of 2012 but I’ve tried my best.
Let’s take a look at what I’ve chosen…
Benefit Erase Paste
I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, unless I have a new, really bad spot, I just use Touche Eclat under my eyes and that’s all. But if I had to choose my favourite “concealer” type of product – that would be this one. It is a creamy peach corrector which works great for the dark under eyes circles. I had a review of it but because of some tech problems, it was deleted, need to re-write it soon.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20
One of my favourite face products you can read the details why here. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water
This gives a very natural finish and light coverage and you can’t see it on the face, at all! Miracle for dry skin in cold weather, as it doesn’t enhance any dry patches. See all the shade available here.
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
It is a very nice foundation that gives a dewy finish so works great for my dry skin. The shade Porcelain is a great fit for fair skin and works for me in AW, in SS, I use the second lightest shade – Beige. Plus it comes with concealer which is a great deal for the price. Want to know more?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl
This product probably doesn’t even need an introduction. It’s the best highlighter out there, it gives a very natural and beautiful effect.
Wow, I was able to choose only three blushers, although I was very tempted to add more of them.
BECCA Cream Blush in Amaryllis
My favourite blush for AW months, perfect cool toned and natural looking, gives a niceRead More
