When Lisa Eldridge likes a product, I want to try it. I do always tend to forget that she has a different color scheme than me and that she can rock more colors because she has a cleaner canvas (brown eyes and brown hair). With my red hair, blue eyes, and pale skin with a yellow undertone, I can only wear so many shades. I always get lured into trying new nude shades, only to find out that they don't really work for me.
Hourglass released a gorgeous range of nude lipsticks that didn't look so pale nude. I wanted to try one and show it to you. After checking out swatches online, I decided to get number 4 which is described as a pink based beige nude with a hint of deep rose. To me it looked like a muted salmon peach.
The packaging is absolutely stunning. Love how sleek and luxurious it looks. The pigmentation is indeed very good, really opaque. The wear of it wasn't what I had hoped – it emphasized the lines in my lips and had a chalky look to it. It doesn't have an added perfume, which was not so pleasant. It smelled and tasted not to my liking. It is difficult to describe.
I came to the conclusion that I cannot rock nudes. It makes me look like I am part of the cast of AMH. However, I can imagine that many of you can, and maybe want to check out this range of new nude lip colors. I will stick to my nude Labello and MAC Jubilee.
