Recently I saw the newly released Maybelline nude lipsticks at my local chemist and I don't know what it was but decided that I must own one of them. The colour that appealed to me most was Tantalizing Taupe but there were 6 shades in the range.
Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in Tantalizing Taupe
What can I say about this lippy? It didn't wow me. It's a nude, it's kinda boring. But you know what? It's also the kind of colour that's low maintenance and doesn't require much effort to wear which is great for those lazy days when you know you should be making an effort with your appearance but just can't be bothered going to much trouble. The colour is semi glossy and fairly creamy, lasts about 4 hours and best of all won't give you concealer lips. I carry it in my handbag all the time just in case I forget to wear a lipstick one day (come on Lilit, really? Like that will ever happen?) as the shade will go with all outfits.
Here's how it looks on the lips - not wow-worthy, but not horrible either. Note that I have lined my lips with a lipliner (Nabi liner in Natural) as otherwise there was not much definition against my skin tone.
The Maybelline ColorSentational lipsticks are $16.95 but to be quite honest you can pick them up on sale most of the time for less than that.
Are you a nude lipstick lover?
