I love a good nude lip! It’s a staple ‘shade’ in my makeup wardrobe, who knows how many I have. I’m also a fan of Hourglass Cosmetics, great formulas in all their items. Pair those two up and you have the brand new Femme Nude Lip Stylo collection ($35 CAD) “a creamy, full-coverage formula and satin finish. With six shades to choose from there’s a nude for every mood” It was hard to choose just one for me so I picked two, below I share #6 “a deep mauve nude”. However the color description and swatches online aren’t really a great guide, these need to be seen and tried in a Sephora store (although their overall in-store lighting could be improved upon so we look much better in the mirrors)
The texture is smooth and creamy and feels hydrating on the lips while wearing it. The coverage is full, which means you will see it as a true nude shade. It isn’t over shiny but not matte either and the packaging is luxury with a twist up and down mechanism (just remember to twist it back down before you re-cap it ; )
I like to pair my nude lip with a coordinating blush (same color family) for a soft feminine look and a top it with a sexy smokey eye or try the retro inspired winged liner look. You can also keep the eye slightly defined which I did the other evening. If you are into nude lips, you may just want to take a look at these.
Swatch is on the back of my hand, but remember that natural lip color will affect the finished ‘nude’ look. If you have a lot of natural lip color, you may want to try a concealer under the nude shades to take down your natural color a bit for a truer nude appearance.
What is your favorite nude lip product?
