Ever experience the moment when you see a lip color on someone else and it looks incredible and you need it right that second? So you go out to purchase it then you try it and it looks so completely different on you? Story of my life! I’ve bought my fair share of nude lipstick and lip gloss shades…I have a whole bin
full. I always seem to gravitate towards the colors that look gorgeous in the tube but make me look like a zombie when on my lips. It’s a constant battle and I lose quite frequently. Wouldn’t you think a nude color would be the easiest because it’s…nude? There are super pale nudes, muted nudes, deeper nudes…you name it and they probably attached the word ‘nude’ to it to confuse us even more! BUT have no fear I have found an incredible solution that I think will work for just about everyone!
Essence has done it again! I have raved about Essence before and I probably will many more times to follow! Recently, they have added three new long lasting lipsticks to their collection. The Long Lasting Nudes are the answer to your prayers! There’s only three shades in this line but the three shades go from the palest nude to the deepest. The reason nudes are so difficult is because it matters the color of your lips. That’s why a lipstick on someone else will look completely different on you. However, these lipsticks are the perfect place to start.
Deepest shade: 05 Cool Nude
Mid tone: 02 Porcelain Doll
Lightest shade: 01 Wearing Only a Smile
These lipsticks are incredibly comfy. They do not suck the life out of your lips at all. They are not liquid lipsticks so they won’t last all day and they do transfer. The lipsticks are a beautiful satin finish. It’ll bring a little more life to your lips! The best part is they are only $2.99 EACH! You can buy them all without feeling at all guilty or breaking the bank! You can layer them up as well to get an even more perfect shade. The packaging is my favorite part. I love the all nude colored tubes and the engraved ‘E’ on the lipsticks. I purchased all three of these lipsticks from Ulta.
Go get them before they run out! You will not be disappointed.
