Gorgeous Nude Lip Combo

I'm really enjoying my Lipstick Challenge. Not only is it forcing me into using neglected lipsticks and helping (a tiny bit) to use up some lippies, I'm experimenting much more with layering. I've become very used to applying lipsticks straight out of the tube and maybe adding a little gloss at times. Now I'm trying to really change the look of the lipstick so I don't get bored throughout the week with the same shade.
I tried out a new combo last week and ended up wearing it every day after that because I liked it so much! My lipstick was E.L.F. Matte Lip Color in Natural which is a dirty, reasonably deep pink. I'd wanted to lighten it, so put Barry M Lip Paint in 101 Marshmallow underneath. This is practically white on me (like sunblock!), with the Matte lippie on top it became a lightish, peachy pink. I didn't bother with lipliner as both lipsticks are quite 'dry' and don't feather on me. Then I added Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (Nude) over the top. It's the yummiest, most amazing feeling balm/gloss. I've already ordered a full-size version because I love this one so much. Finished result was this beautiful glossy, nude lip.  Do we like?  I haven't decided on this weeks lipstick yet because I've been makeup-less the past few days.  Have you rediscovered any old favourites lately or found a new beautiful combination?
