May The Best NUDE Win

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

Time Square

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 

LIPLI 09

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 🙂

xo, JJ

  1. Love this post! I’ve tried the NYX lip lingerie in the shade Lace Detail and while I LOVEE the formula, I didn’t like the color on me. The liquid suede color looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I have to pick one up! xx

      Isn’t it the worst when you find a lip gloss but hate the color….its such a bummer lol But I totally recommend going back and finding a different shade because you’ll surely fall back in love with the gloss. And thank youu 🙂

      Aw thats such a bummer! It’s a gorgeous too but it’s good for some not for others… I want to try another one so bad but it’s so hard to decide when you can physically see each one! Have you tried any other tones?

        Not from Colourpop no, that was my first one. I know, it is so hard to find the right nude shade!!!

  3. I can really appreciate a good nude lipcolor! I love the formula from the NYX liquid suede eventhough they are super hard to apply pretty! I need to try out the lip lingerie, is the applicator the same as the applicator of the liquid suede? Oh, and colourpop is also a brand I need to try, unfortunately hard to get overhere! Really loved this post Jenny, you should do post like this more often! xo ♥

      I agree, suede’s formula is SO good but I wish they had more color options. But I feel you with the applicator….when I was using the red color, it was a total mess! But when I use the nude Sandstorm color its not bad, I honestly thing the applicator for the lip lingerie is worse than suedes…. it’s weird its thinner and more paint brushy if that makes any sense visually (probably not lol) but for the color and overall product, I can’t even hate on it, I love it so much. Does ColourPop not ship over to your location? I know I can only order it online, luckily they do US shipping which is nice.

      1. I hate it when the applicators are bad! I’m such a loser when it comes to applying lipmake-up. I’m the worst with it, so I need an applicator where I can put my make-up on nicely. Unfortunately, the NYX-liquid lipsticks don’t have a lovely applicator :-(. I also tried it with a red color and it was a total mess haha. I don’t know if Colourpop ships to the Netherlands, I will take a look on their website new. Because if they do, I’ll definitely order stuff soon! xoxo

    Very nice! I love how both nyx lippies look on you. Too bad the colourpop didn’t work out for you. I don’t like to buy lippies online as much either because some colors may not look good. Which is why I’ve been putting off buying colourpop for so long lol. Anyway, the lip lingerie shade looks gorgeous on you, perfect nude. Will have to keep trying to see if my shade is available in stores nearby.

      Yesss I so badly want you to find the lingerie line I’m dying to see your thoughts on them. I feel like I want to go and buy 5 more lol Id totally grab you one and send it out to you if I knew what color you’d like…my target just got a whole new shipment of them! I wish suede would come out with a wider line of color tones because nothing beats the suede formula. But yeah totally bummed about colourpop…I was so excited for them but total flop. I ended up giving it away to my friend it goes really well with her skin tone so I’m glad it didn’t go to total waste.

        I think I’m gonna look up a ton of swatches of the lip lingerie line before I make up my mind lol. Il have to try target next then. And I agree, the suede line is great but they’re mostly very bold colors. Although, I do want alien, it’s a black matte lol.

    These all look good on you but my favourite of the three has to be Times Square the colour looks gorgeous! I’m going to have to shop around & get it into my makeup bag! Xxx

    1. xoJenny says:

      Omg yes girl, you need one of these lippies! Times Square is a gorgeous color but overall with my skin tone it’s not the greatest (so sad). I passed it off to my best friend it suits her much better. Buttt colourpop in general is such a great brand!

    These all look so nice on you!! I have few NYX Lingeries too, nude shades as well because I am also so obsessed with them! I love how they look on lips and that they don’t feel heavy but I feel like I need to reapply them all the time because they keep fading away! Do you have this problem too or is it just me? 😁 Also I have been dying to try out ColourPop lippies but it’s really expensive to order them here so I will probably never have a chance to try them 😦 They look amazing though 😍

      Ohhh let me know which shades you have in lingerie! They have so many nude options I don’t even know where to begin lol But yeah, I find that I have to reapply every so often, I wasn’t sure if it was because the shade I chose was so light but I don’t mind reapplying because like you said the formula is so light anyways!

  14. Nude lips are such a classic look and just add that polished element to an outfit! I feel like I’ve been living under a rock having not tried any of the NYX lip products! This one looks so lovely though. It’s definitely difficult to find the right shade as there are so many to suit all different complexions! The NYX lip lingerie one suits you perfectly and looks really natural! xxx

      I couldn’t agree more with everything you said in here!!! I was actually just trying to explain this to Andrew how just because it’s a ‘nude shade’ doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to go with your particular skin tone because he’s always rolling his eyes at how many different glosses and sticks I try out lol At least you get me 🙂 You totally need to try one of these NYX glosses though! Are they accessible to you over there?!

    I heard that the NYX lip lingerie formula is a bit patchy? Does it last long? It is available in some beautiful shades though!

    1. xoJenny says:

      Its not patchy for me…although I do find it a tad bit sheer, but once its applied and on its great. As for lasting long….I think because its sheer it doesn’t last as long as (in comparison) colour pop or nyx lip suedes. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews on it which made me hesitant but I LOVE their shades so I just had to try it and I now love it. Totally worth trying I’d say 🙂
