From the left:
Demure - Revlon | 14 - Rimmel by Kate | Airy Fairy - Rimmel | Centerfold - Buxom* | Viva Glam Gaga 2 - Mac* | Fairest Nude - L'oreal
Demure from Revlon is a really nice almost-coral color. It has just enough color to add something extra but still looks natural and fine for everyday class or work wear. Revlon makes amazing lipsticks. This one is a satin finish but doesn't appear shimmery or frosty.
14 from the Kate line for Rimmel is a darker nude. I tend to stay away from lighter nudes because I think they can make you look dead and sickly. Rimmel lipsticks are a bit more dry than the Revlon ones but they apply smoothly and add a nice color.
Airy Fairy from Rimmel used to be really popular but I don't see it mentioned often. It is definitely a nude pink. This was my go to for forever and has a very subtle satin finish.
Centerfold was a limited edition shade from Buxom but you may still find it in some stores or online or something. In the swatch it looks like a berry magenta shade but, on my lips its a dark pink nude. I've seen this look very different on different people. Buxom lipsticks are very hydrating and have a beautiful shine on the lips. Some of them are a bit sticky but nothing like a lipgloss.
Viva Glam Gaga 2 was one of MAC's limited edition viva glam shades. The viva glam line is normally endorsed by a celeb and they proceeds go to fighting AIDS. I am not a Gaga fan but this lipstick is nice. Again it isn't sold anymore but it can still be found online some places. This is a true light nude. I rarely wear this on its own but its the perfect color to wear under a lightly pigmented gloss.
Finally is Fairest Nude from L'Oreal. This is very similar to Airy Fairy but a bit darker. Its not quite as dark as 14 though. L'Oreal lipsticks are very basic; they're not too dry to too hydrating. They aren;t glossy or matte either. L'Oreal however is made by Lancome so the quality is normally good. This color is my favorite, go-to lipstick.
