Battle of the nudes....

Everyone loves a nude lippy right? There's so many to choose from though; cool tone, warm tone, brown under tones, pink under tones and some that just make you look dead......not a great look. So which do you choose?

I raked through my lipsticks and pulled out all the nudes I own and wanted to see how they compare, let the battle commence:
