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.
So I thought I was over the holo lipstick and lip gloss trend until Rihanna dropped her Beach, Please! collection!
This limited edition collection includes three killawatt foil highlighter duos, two island bling liquid eye shimmers and of course the one that got me all shimmered and bothered is her Summer Daze and Summer Nights lip gloss collection.
I swatched all of her lip glosses from this collection so if you’re curious about what Rihanna considers as being all foiled up and beachy then keep on reading….
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.
If you guys follow me on Instagram you would know from my Instagram Stories that I had an absolutely wonderful time in the Caribbean but after spending countless hours under the sun it definitely took a toll on my skin.
Even though I took the proper steps to take care of my skin from the sun’s harmful rays like wearing a hat and putting sunscreen on, at the end of the day there is only so much that I can do.
Previously I had written a post about Kat Von D’s ten new shades that she added to her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Collection and I was literally sitting at the mailbox waiting for these to get in.
After trying out Maybelline’s Superstay Matte Ink, I was interested to see how Kat Von D’s would compare knowing that there is a significant price difference of $12 between the two. I knew that the staying power on Maybelline’s lipsticks was super long lasting and the formula for most of them was pretty decent.
If the NARS Orgasm blush didn’t make you feel some type of way when you applied it then imagine what you would do when I tell you that NARS is expanding their collection and coming out with an Orgasm Lip Balm.
For those of you who’ve purchased something from the Orgasm collection you will know that it is a pinky peach shade with a perfect touch of shimmer from the gods.
