Nude's the HUE!

* Originally posted on DEESSEMAGAZINE.NET



The tale of three nudes - Gloss, Satin and Matte Finish ..



Color Swatches of the three shades - excuse my liquid eyeliner handwriting..

Finding the "perfect nude" that is suitable for dark skin is a struggle ...  To my surprise .. Rimmel London has not one but THREE nudes that work well with me  ( BEST PART - they're all under $6 !!!) , and they will work well with you too as all of these colors are universally forgiving. I honestly NEVER considered using cosmetic brands within this price point, as I feel they don't cater to women of color ( horrible past experiences), but it is a NEW DAY !!  A Matte , a Satin and last but not least a Gloss that all pass my "nude test". When you are in the darker skin range, you have to be careful when trying out nudes/pinks that they go well with your tone or else you will just look like extremely awkward ( ie. as if you've been eating powdered donuts.) .  You really get quality with budget friendly lipcolors, I am excited to try more shades in the Rimmel London line.






  • Matte - Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in #113 ($5.49)  This was my ABSOLUTE favorite of the three! It gives you the retro mod feeling with its pale matte texture, and although its a Matte, it is not drying at all.  It gives the same color/ effect of other nude lipsticks three times its price.  It is a universal  matte nude ( which is RARE) as I am dark and it compliments my tone very well without giving that "powdered donut" feeling I mentioned earlier.  This lipstick would be darling with a smokey eye -  not the typical "black" - perhaps a smokey wine/ burgundy or even purple eye. 







  • Satin - Lasting Finish in Crush ($5.20)  Although Crush photographed to look almost identical to #113. It is very different ,  first it gives a satin finish with a nice peachy / pink color.  So this nude leads near the pink / peachy spectrum of nudes.  Its very flirty, and looked amazing on Katy Perry at the Grammys   , and I think it does not look too bad on myself either! Perfect peachy shade for Spring! 







  • Gloss - Stay Glossy in Unlimited Gold ($4.99) A girl has got to have her gloss!  The pictures speak for itself ,  it gives a good amount of shine without being too heavy on the lips, and the gloss lasts for up to 6 hours.  I am the type to start a evening out with one lip and end it with another, and this is the perfect nude gloss to have on hand to do that ! * This gloss would work well paired with either one of the lipsticks above - either as a top coat on your lips , or perhaps just in the middle of your lower lip for a ombre - nude effect. *





  • Five lucky readers will win the Nude of their choice.
