– doesn’t dry lips
– the price

What I didn’t like:
– not very longlasting

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.

Summary
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.

Yeah, I’m the opposite of you. I’m more afraid of the bold lips. 😀

I like bold lips whether that’s really nude or really bright. My favorite are bright but slightly muted colors and I think nude lips can make as much of a statement as bright lips :]

I’ve also never tried any Avon products because the brand as a whole doesn’t appeal to me. I know they have a few fantastic products but so do many other brands I can obtain much easier for about the same cost.

Janessa, I agree, nude lips can make a big statements too. And they’re not as easy to pull off as they might look.

Usually, I avoid Avon for the same reason, too hard to get. And that’s why I’m glad that Tine sent me a bunch of their products. I don’t think I would have tried them otherwise. I wish they were more easily available as that would really tempt more people to try their stuff.

Not everyone can wear a real nude and to make it look good it totally depends on the shade which has to complement skin tone. I’m one who can’t pull it off. There’s got to be a bit of color in there and I don’t think this one would work for me, seems a little too beige. 🙁 I’ll have a look since I think I have this one, somewhere.

Icaria, I agree. Nude shades seem tame and easy to wear, but they really aren’t. This one is quite beige indeed, but because it’s not too warm/cold/pale/flat, I think a lot of people would be able to pull it off. I apply too swipes though as I think it looks better on me when it is a little more intense.
