Rose Lips: reveiw L'Oreal 's les nudes collection lipstick

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I've been on the hunt for a pretty pink nude lipstick that would compliment my skin tone for quite a while now. So when I saw L'Oreal released a new line of lipsticks I didn't hesitate throwing it in to my shopping basket.

I won't lie the first thing that caught my eye was the packaging. Looking more like a high end lipstick than any other drugstore brand that I've seen laying around with its sleek black casing and gold accents. The collection is made up of six nude shades modeled by celebrities with different skin tones so you are able to find your 'ideal' nude.

I opted to go for Doutzen's nude because I have a rather fair skin tone. The color is a soft dusty rose shade which applies on smoothly with a creamy texture. The color pay off on the other hand. . .was not something I was completely thrilled about. When applied on to my lips it was nearly transparent and seemed to appear more "frosty" instead of the warm rosy color you can see in the packaging. I know it is supposed to be a nude lipstick, a subtle shade to bring warmth and a natural glow to your skin. Instead I felt washed out and disappointed with my seven dollar purchase. 

I wish I could say I love this lipstick, but I don't. It did not woo me like I thought it would. So maybe I will remain nude-less for now. Did that sound odd? I assure you I'm still wearing clothes while I write this.
