I am so surprised there are no reviews for this in my dark category. For the record I'm a NW45. I like the nude look and was stalking reviews on Mac lippies. I'm picky about my nude lips and I don't like the too pale look and I don't believe in buying a matte lipstick and having to do a bunch of stuff to get it to look right on me.
It's hard to find a nude lipstick that doesn't have a pink undertone to it. That looks odd on darkskin (IMO) and you have to do too much work to get it to look right. The best nude lippies for my skin tone have a taupey undertone and this is one of those. I miissed out on Rihanna Nude but I was able to get MAC Exclusive Event which is a pretty good nude on me but #14 is even better.
I found this at CVS for 40% off. I got it thinking it wouldn't hurt to try but I didn't have much confidence it would really looks right. Boy was I wrong. The color is light but is buildable. I found myself going back and forth over my lips to get the color to show. It still shows up pretty light so I added some lipliner and put some gloss over it. I have a natural nude lip that doesn't look chalky or ashy.
So if you are a darkskin sista like myself, find this lipstick to get that perfect nude lip!.
This are so matte! But with Baby lips or chapstick underneath its not a problem. Number 14 is a gorgeous nude. Its super natural but very very gorgeous. It lasted eight hours without eating/drinking! I wear this to school and during lunch if I eat, it will fade off a bit and I need to reapply but i get lazy and my lips dry out a bit so i just apply lip gloss for my last period. The pigmentation is amazing! Especially for the $4-6 you're paying! It has only a couple shades but shades that I'm into so thats great. This nude doesnt wash you out. IMO shade 113 looks like a dead shade. But hey. This shade is amazing for day to day, highly recommend.
This colour is just awful, I bought it for my mum & she didn't like it so gave it to me & I find it so unwearable. This is a mix between a nude & brown but looks like a washed out brown on me. I like Kate lipsticks but this colour never gets used.
LOVE this colour! This is the first sort of nude lipstick I have ever worn and feel like it looks great! It is kind of a pinky/beige nude colours that is perfect for everyday wear, or to pair with a super dramatic makeup look. My mom even loves this colour..it honestly suits so many different people.
I thought I would like this color but I hate it. On the tube it looked very nice but when I applied it at home I hated it. It looks too beige on my lips it is long lasting but I don't like the color. I think they should have made more colors with this formula. The packaging is very cute and the scent is very fruity like all Rimmel lipsticks.
Shade 14 is a milk chocolate tea - light to medium taupe-pink nude - with a creamy satin finish. Its opaque enough to cover my pigmented lips, works with my very fair NC10 warm skin without washing me out, is moisturising and creamy, long lasting, and does not go into lines. The Cinnamon buns & whipped cream scent I love - so very english! Packaging is adorable too, with the slanted lid with crown on top and the red "Kate" with love heart signature. So much cuter than my MAC, Chanel, Lancome, or even Dior lipsticks, I actually feel I get a better luxury lipstick for a 1/4 the price - thanks Kate Moss & Rimmell!!
I'm a nude lipstick addict,that's all I wear on my lips. I really like this warmer tone nude and look really pretty with or without gloss. Some complain that it's drying but because its made to last the formula is on the drier side but for me at least it's creamy enough that I don't have any complain about it. I also put on lip balm before any lipstick to smooth out the texture of my lips. I will be repurchasing once I'm done with the one I have now.
I really like Rimmel lipsticks (I just wish there was a better shade selection!), and I love the Kate Moss line in particular. So far, my favorite shade has been #80, but I like this one as well. This is a pale nude, and it actually looks a bit TOO pale for me when I put it on (I have medium skin, medium-dark brown hair). However, I wear it when I am going for a darker eye/paler lip combo. Like the other lipsticks in the Rimmel line, this goes on smoothly and provides opaque coverage. However, whereas I've found that #80 seems to last forever, this lighter shade doesn't seem to have very good staying power for some reason. I might or might not re-purchase.
I have always wanted a nude brown lipstick, but I've had trouble finding one because my skin is pink and fair, and most browns are too dark and warm/roasted to look natural (for example, MAC's Double Shot). Other "nudes" are too light and pasty-looking, thus draining my face of life (MAC's Honeylove).
This color is perfect because it's a warm 90's-era brown with yellow and pink tones. I had tried Pure Zen by MAC, and it was too yellow, almost light orange on me. Fairest Nude by Loreal is pretty, but too pale and not suitable for work–it's more of a statement color with bold eyes, IMO.
I also love the firm, even, smooth texture of this lipstick. It's not oily and slippery like so many Revlon shades, but it's just as affordable. It lasts forever on the lips and wears off evenly. It can be drying on chapped lips, so a balm and soft lips are recommended with this shade.
The packaging is cute, too. Black, with "Kate" in red. The scent is kind of strange, like spicy fruits or florals, but it doesn't persist once applied on the lips.
I've been very impressed with the Kate lipsticks and will keep trying more. I can see why this shade is too "gray" for some people, but it works for me.
Another NC40 WINNER! I'd read Kate Moss's article in Elle about why she chose these shades and how hard she worked to get them right. She worked hard! I was given the Nude (14) and it is PERFECT for my skin-tone!
The pluses - texture, color payoff, staying power, price point.
The minuses - drying and requires a perfectly smooth lip skin in order to not make dry lips look and feel even worse.
Will I buy it again? Yes. It's just too perfect! I just make sure to exfoliate first and re-apply balm and a bit of balm or gloss on top every 3 hours or so. Worth it for me.
