Nude lipsticks scare me more than bright fuchsia or red shades. I know it sounds weird. Bright shades are very bold and eye-catching, while nude hues look so tame and unassuming. But with them, the risk of looking like a corpse is always around the corner, especially if you have pale skin. But, thanks to my friends Tine, I’ve found one that would suit most skintones.
I’m talking about Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Naturally Nude. It’s a pale beige nude with a creme finish and a creamy texture that glides smoothly on the lips. Although it’s not the most moisturizing lipstick I’ve tried, it feels comfortable on and doesn’t dry lips at all. It also doesn’t settle into fine lines.
Pigmentation is good. One swipe provides a soft wash of colour, which is perfect for the most natural of looks, but I like to apply two. That way, you can better see the colour, which always remains very natural and subdued. I usually pair it with smokey eyes or bright eye makeup, but you can also use it for everyday, work-appropriate looks. It just goes well with most looks, really.
But, of course, there’s a catch. Naturally Nude is not very longlasting. On my lips, it completely disappears after a couple of hours, and that’s even if I don’t eat, drink, or kiss. That means that you will have to reapply it often throughout the day. But if you don’t mind that, and have trouble finding a nude lipstick shade that suits your skintone, you may want to give this a try.
Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Naturally Nude is a pale beige nude shade with a creme finish that looks flattering on most skintones. Its creamy texture glides smoothly on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. Pigmentation is good, but the colour fades quickly.
