As a follow-up to my Pink Lippies Swatches, I have now my nudes and browns. I only have a few of them because I'm not really into brownish shades because they tend to make me look a bit sickly. These are the few ones I've dared to try:

My favorite and most used of the bunch is the NYX SML in Stockholm, a peachy light pink color depending on the light and the NYX Smokey Look Megashine lipgloss which is pigmented enough for me to wear as a My-Lips-But-Better shade. These colors are great to pair with smokey and dark eyes. I really didn't like Maybelline's SoNude lippie because it was so peachy applied on my lips, it was almost neon. Toffee Cream on the other hand, turned so peachy on me. I'm having a difficult time looking for nudes. When I try lipsticks at the store, they look great but at home, they look so different. Most nudes turn peachy orange on my lips. What I would like would be for them is to be less peach and more on brown-pink so until I find that perfect balance, I'm still on the hunt for my MLBB lippie.

Update: My perfect nude (MLBB) lipstick! MAC Velvet Teddy
