I’m really glad I started this lipstick series because it’s making me realize I seriously need to evaluate every single lipstick purchase from now on. I had to break up the rose/mauve nudes into two parts because I didn’t have time to put them all in one post. Also, I actually had a hard time deciding which was more mauve or pink or both, I finally decided just to throw them all together and hope for the best! For the most part, they are all a little different from each other, but if I was actually going to buy another shade, it would have to be really different in some way from what I have already. I’m really glad I’m doing this for reference, I can always pull up this post the next time I’m lured by another supposed MLBB.
The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Warm Me Up is still my favorite pinky nude lipstick. For me, it just has that perfect balance of pink and nude and it’s an easy color to wear. The Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in 08 and the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Anita are more on the rosier side. I also have one of the original Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks in Airy Fairy, purchased because a beauty YouTuber raved about it. It’s a little too light and cool for my skin tone, especially in the summer, in the winter I can get away with it. The Revlon Matte Lipstick in Mauve It Over is another YouTube buy, but this one I really do love. It’s a peachy pink nude that’s reminiscent of MAC Velvet Teddy, but more pink. It doesn’t seem mauve to me at all really. The Milani Creamy Matte Lipstick in Matte Naked is a newer addition and has more brown to it and a hint of mauve. It probably could have gone with the first bunch of more tan nudes, but since it’s a recent purchase it missed the boat.
I actually have love for each of these lipsticks, they all have good formulas and color payoff. I can wear all of them on their own, except Airy Fairy, I’d probably need to wear it with a warmer liner underneath in the summer. It would be perfect on someone whose complexion is lighter than mine.
If you love these kinds of lipsticks, more to come next week!
