As much as I keep running away from buying more nude lipsticks, this one just looked too good to pass up. Another new addition to my nude lip collection is from Jouer and it’s their limited edition lip trio Jet-Set Le Nude Mini Lip Kit which is perfect creating that on the go pout.
Like many, finding the right shade of nude lipstick is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Pretty much near impossible. At one point they even had us checking out or nipples for the right shade. That’s how serious this nude lipstick situation has become.
The cosmetics industry has come a long way when it comes to perfecting a nude shade that will compliment most skin tones. I’ve created a list of my favorite nude lipsticks that weren’t necessarily perfect but got pretty close.
We all know of those nude lipsticks that make us look like we just walked out the cemetery but the choices from this list did everything but that. Some may need a little bit more tweaking than others with some lip pencils but these worked out great for me.
I tried that looking at your nipple thing to find your perfect nude shade and that didn’t do it for me so I’m back to doing things the old fashioned way.
Trying on a million and one nude lipstick until I find a winner.
I wish I had that super power of knowing if a nude lipstick would work for me without trying them first because as of late, I’ve been through several nude lipsticks that I purchased that I had to kick to the curb.
Not really! I’m not wasting my money like that.
You best believe that I will do everything in my power to make that nude lipstick that’s ten shades lighter than me work before I resort to throwing it out.
I’m pretty sure most of you have heard of Bobbi Brown’s makeup line. It was definitely on my list for a very very long time and I’ve finally gotten the chance to try it. This was actually what my makeup artist put on me for my wedding lip and I fell in love with it. That will be a different blog post however, whenever I receive my wedding pictures.
It’s called English Rose from their Art Stick Liquid Lip collection which looks like a pinkish nude on my complexion almost like my Naturally Chic Lipstick by Milani that you can get here. It’s definitely a more safer shade I would say, meaning that it’s something that you could wear in an office or professional environment. It does slightly give off a little mature feeling to it. Other than that, it’s definitely a shade that you can easily wear from day to night.
It comes in a squeezable tube that can conveniently fit in a small clutch as it’s not bulky at all, which I love.I also found it very easy to apply. You know that sometimes liquid lipsticks can just feel too heavy and sticky, and with this one I found that it was very comfortable to wear, smooth and lightweight. It didn’t emphasize any dry patches or lines on my lips and had a creamy semi-matte finish that lasted for about 6-8 hours. The few times that I’ve worn it, I’ve never had to reapply so that’s a plus for me.
I’ve tried quite a few liquid lipsticks and this is one that I would highly recommend. You can purchase a deluxe sample here for $14.99 if you’ve you’re a newbie to Bobbi Brown like me and would like to give it a try or you can choose a regular sized product for $47.47 .
