I’ve acquired a few drugstore lip products lately, trying to find nice rosy/nude shades to add to my collection. I tend to go for creamier and lighter textures rather than matte ones for a day to day use, as my lips can sometimes become dry and chapped.
Light pink and rosy nudes are my go-to colours and I instantly wanted to try the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demeure (105) when I saw a swatch on the internet. The colour is absolutely perfect!! I’ve been wanting to find that shade for a long time and it flatters my skin tone just right. This was actually the first time I tried a Lacquer Balm, and I have to say I found some drawbacks on this one. The colour as I said is a dream, a sheer delicate pink that is a bit hydrating, however, the staying power is very low. And it has peppermint on its composition – which made my lips sting at the beginning – but after a few uses, I didn’t feel it anymore.
The Bourjois 3D Effect Lipgloss is a product I already liked and wanted to try a new shade. They have a very nice range from transparent to bright red and a lot of pink tones. The one I bought now was number 29 “Rose Charismatic”, which is an almost transparent glittery pink that hydrates and does not feel sticky although it’s a bit thick. And it lasts quite well!
Last product I wanted to try was the Rimmel London Kate Nude, part of Kate Moss’ nude collection. They exist in five shades and I got number 40, the lightest one. It’s a long-lasting hydrating lipstick with nudes that can flatter different skin tones. I liked the colour, although it’s not pinkish, but it’s true that this lipstick is not very pigmented (at least the shade I tried). As far as long lasting goes, I would say it’s halfway there!
I’m also a fan of Victoria’s Secret Color Drama Lipstick in Naked. I have had this lipstick forever and probably they even changed the collection! And Sephora’s Lipgloss in Natural Look (03) which unfortunately is not sold in the UK, although you might find it on Amazon.
Do you use nude pink lipsticks? Which ones do you love??
