Tried and tested: the best barely there lipsticks

Nude lips are ideal for when I am off duty, says our All Ages model Elee Nova.

As a model and an actor, I think makeup is key to achieving a great character. From smoky eyes to bright red or orange lips, it’s a simple way of adding drama and personality. So nude lips are perfect for when I am being myself.

The first lipstick I tried was the Mac Cremesheen in Peach Blossom (£16.50). I love Mac lipsticks, and have a lot of them, but this was slightly too pale for me: it made me look a bit lipless. With blond hair, though, I think it could be great.

I loved the look of Laura Geller’s Iconic Baked Sculpting lipstick in Tribeca Tan(£16, it has great packaging and is really sleek. The tone was a bit orangey for my taste, but the colour would be perfect if you wanted to look a bit 1960s; it would also be great with red hair.


Pür’s Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstickin Oh Bae (£16, was a revelation. I used to think that matte lipsticks were super drying, but this wasn’t at all – my lips were really moisturised, and the colour is great for everyday use. It also has a lovely, sweet taste, which is definitely important; let’s admit it, we do eat our lipsticks, a bit.

My absolute favourite, though, was Too Faced La Crème lipstick in Naked Dolly (£18, It was moisturising and lasted all morning, plus the gold packaging is really glam. It’s the perfect tone for me, and I will definitely be adding this to my makeup kit.
