So about a week or so ago, I wrote a post dedicated to my favorite Nude lip shades. And at the end I was filled with joy at all the comments and suggestions you all left for me!
And although NYX Lip Suede has held strong as my favorite matte nude lip gloss, I was getting tired of using the same color every.single.day. As a reference I use Sandstorm, which I love- I mean I’ve gone through 2 things of them already but I wasn’t sure that I wanted to buy a 3rd just yet.
I ran through all the options and picked 2 that were of interest to me to try out. I originally wanted to try the MAC Velvet Teddy one but this girl is trying to be good with staying on a budget. [I mean afterall, I DID PAY OFF MY CAR! Woo no more car payments for this girl…for now.]
Between the 2 new ones I tried (and keeping Sandstorm in mind), I came to a solid consensus on my favorite. So let me ramify-
Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lip
I’ve seen this ColourPop brand on almost everyone’s blogs and those $4-6 prices, I literally could not resist. My only concern was not being able to see the color in real life and that always makes me skeptical because I like to swatch it on myself before buying any lip product. But at the same time it was only $5.
My thoughts: I LOVE the formula. It goes on so nicely and its highly pigmented. But, the color was just not for me. Now I love the color of the swatch but on my lips- it doesn’t look like that. And it’s SUCH a bummer!!!
NYX LIP LINGERIE
Okay, so these matte Lip Lingeries, I’ve been dying to try since the first blog I read that featured them!! I read NYX and was instantly sold, for obvious reasons. And these babies are only about $6ish which is affordable in my books.
My thoughts: This is the color I have been looking for! I mean I couldn’t have chosen a better nude shade for myself. The formula is good…but only good. It’s light, slightly sheer (not sure if its because it’s a nude) but nonetheless, I love it when its on and dried!
So the winner of the 3: NYX LIP SUEDE, COLOUR POP, NYX LIP LINGERIE….
NYX LIP LINGERIE
I’m honestly shocked that this out did Lip Suedes Sandstorm for me. If LIPI was in Suede form, suede would for sure win overall because I love lip suede’s formula the most.
I finally feel at ease now with a good new nude lippie 🙂
