I've been getting that urge again readers. I want to bust out the shimmery bronzer, gold eyeshadow, and coral-pink blush. But more than anything, I want to linger back to nude lips. Over winter, I had fun experimenting with red. And no matter what, I can rely on my loyal stand-bys such as Nude Rose and Way to Love. I can throw those pinky-nudes on with anything, no thinking required. Even though I have come to realize that true nudes are almost impossible for me to feel comfortable wearing, I still like to try. Well, I think I have found a true nude that I like seeing on myself. It is from Revlon's new Colorburst lipstick line, and it is called " Soft Nude." I think the name suits this lipstick perfectly, because a soft nude is exactly what it is. It is wearable on its own or layered with a gloss on top which is how I've been wearing it. My only complaint is that it feels a bit drying on my lips. If your lips aren't in great condition, the color will settle into any lines or dry patches. I think that happens with any light lip look though, so just be sure to moisturize before applying. I'm not sure what other color I could compare Soft Nude to since I don't own lipsticks such as MAC's Myth, Creme D' Nude, or Hue. I do own Blankety, and I can tell you that Soft Nude is more peachy than pink. Blankety has pink undertones, while Soft Nude is I guess more on the peach side. Overall, if your interested in a nude lipstick, I think Revlon's is a good option. Wait until your drugstore has a sale on Revlon cosmetics so you will pay even less! I'm keeping this nude in my purse so it's always on hand ;)

  3. i love nude lips but I prefer them to be pink-ish on me. I love MAC's "underage" lipglass to achieve a nude look. :)

  5. Oh this looks so peachy and lovely! Totally reminds me of summer :) I try to avoid really light nude lips as my hair is blonde and I can look a bit gross and pornstarish (lol), but this looks like the perfect peachy nude. I'm def gunna check this out! It sort of reminds me of this Yes to Carrots lipgloss that I got a few weeks ago in Playful Nude. I plan on doing a review on it soon because I love it so much, but you should check it out! xo

  14. Pretty color. I don't think I could pull off nude lipstick because I'm so fair skinned. I like the packaging on that lipstick, though.

  15. I love nude lips! But I can never find a good true nude with my skin and pale lips. I just end up with chapstick or a bit of a blushy pink/nude. Yours looks perfectly complementary and so sweet!
