7-Day Lipstick Challenge: Nude.

Most people either love or hate nude lips. I fall somewhere in between those two categories, sometimes thinking it's the best thing since sliced bread and other times thinking it's possibly the worst makeup trend to ever happen to mankind.

On days when I'm feeling it may fall more into the sliced bread category, I'll usually opt for one of my favorite nude lipsticks, Edward Bess Ultra Slick lipstick in Nude Lotus.


(It was cloudy today so the lighting was less than ideal but Nude Lotus actually swatched a bit darker on my hand than it appears in the swatch above.)

Nude Lotus is a pinky, brown nude that is more wearable on medium skintones than paler nudes like MAC Creme d'Nude. 


I also lined my lips with NYX lip liner in Natural to give my lips extra dimension that can often be lost when wearing nude lipsticks.

Countdown until anticipated completion of challenge: 2 days.

  4. Nude lips look great on you :) I'm really jealous that you can pull off soooo many shades of lipstick! I personally like nude lips on myself a lot since I tend to stick to lighter lip colors year round. Revlon's Soft Nude is the only actual nude lipstick I own and I love it!

  12. It does look good on you! Wearing nude is all about finding the right shade. I recently bought my very first nude nude like creme nude and I think the color is a bit off though I can still see its potential. That one might be something for me to try

  14. I usually dislike nudes but this one looks really good on you. Have you seen swatches of the new Lady Gaga Viva Glam l/s and l/g? They are both similar to the colour you are wearing....very nude.

  16. @Angelic Betrayal: I like Soft Nude too :)

    @Jen W: Thank you so much! That's very sweet of you :)

    @Thifa: I think people who find the traditional, popular nude lipsticks too pale on them might like this one because it's a little bit darker and has pinky undertones so it doesn't look flat and corpse-like. If you do end up trying this one, let me know how you like it!

    @FunnyFaceBeauty: Yup, just saw them thanks to you :) It looks more like MAC Peachstock, I think...like a dark, peachy-brown nude.
