L-R: Nude Peach and Pink Apricot
When it comes to nude lipsticks, I find my home in Burberry.
To me, Burberry is the grandmaster of nude and effortlessly natural makeup.
I have been looking and squandering money for quite a while in my desperate search for a nude lipstick that would suit my yellow skin tone. I made a long visit to Tom Ford province, however, I couldn’t find a nude lipstick at all that made me look natural. They were all too pale for me and made me look fake. I had to say no, despite all the eve reviews of his lipstick’s formula.
My other recent purchase was YSL. Now, let me tell you that at this point, I was gnashing my teeth in sheer frustration: I want a nude lipstick!
So I bought the YSL one. The formula is creamy and again there have been fireworks of compliments regarding this formula. Yes, it is indeed moisturizing. But as for the nude’s color on me? Well, it was too pale by far and it made me look overdone and that I was about to attend a Halloween party. When I do use it, I have to layer a NARS nude gloss (this one was too pale again) that somehow mellowed the tone for some reason.
Finally, puffing with exhaustion, I rested at Burberry republic and have never left since.
The Burberry Lip Velvet in Pink Apricot is the best nude matte lipstick I’ve used. The formula is very moisturizing and sits comfortably on my lips. There’s no threat of it stinging and drying (it happened with Giorgio Armani where for every minute the lipstick was on my lips I felt my lips dry up and start flaking. I was literally running to get home to completely wipe all traces of it and rescue my lips with Lucas Pawpaw).
I actually find the Lip Velvet’s formula to be more moisturizing than the Burberry Lip Mist.
I absolutely love this new lipstick! It’s something I can wear everyday. It’s chic and effortless.
It’s deeper and richer in color than the Burberry Lip Mist in Nude Peach.
I believe every stylish girl out there who wants to look effortlessly beautiful should have both the matte Pink Apricot and the slightly glossier Nude Peach.
