I cannot believe that after searching high and wide, I finally found my HG pinky-nude lipstick for only 4.99 at Target. I searched Clinique, all of the Ulta prestige cosmetics, and Sephora, but so many of their lipsticks contained shimmer, which I do not like at all. I finally found this color, a gorgeous, creamy, subtle nude-pink at an amazing price, considering what I was willing to pay for a high-end brand. I can't wear this without any other makeup though, as it washes me out. But with makeup (light foundation, mascara, blush), this color works beautifully for me.
I too bought this after seeing it being raved on YT. For one, I dont like lipsticks not being sealed so I gave it a 1 on packaging for that! Im blonde blue eye girl so I put this on with a VERY light hand otherwise its too..bleh on me. The girl on the video slathers it on but I cant do that otherwise I have just brown lips. So its ok. I put a clear gloss on top and looks good. Would not purchase again. I feel there are better "nude" colors out there.
I bought this after watching a youtube guru sccastaneda rave about this. I get a very pretty, pink nudy lip after using this. It's glides on smoothly and I feel like it actually moisturizes my lips. I also love the packaging it comes in.
I love this lipstick! It's a pinkish nude and it goes on really nice and smooth! I really really like how moisturizing it is. - this has become my everyday color!
Nudes are particularly hard for me to pull off. I'm NW5ish, so I'm already pale as a corpse, so I can't easily wear any color that is too light. I'm also extremely cool toned with warm, rosy pigmented lips, so lip colors tend to pull orange on me. L'Oreal Fairest Nude is the answer to these problems. It's a fairly creamy, but fairly matte, pigmented light, cool pinky nude. It's not pale enough to wash me out, and it has enough pink in it to flatter my cool complexion. I've seen it look almost lilac on some warmer skintones, but for me those lavendar tones are totally gone and it's more of a straightforward muted pink-nude. It would look great with many looks. Because it's so thick and pigmented, the color lasts a pretty good amount of time on my lips, especially for a nude. The only thing is that it has that terrible L'Oreal lipstick scent. I hate that, but I'm going to wear the crap out of this.
I'm pleasantly surprised by this lipstick! I have 2 other colour riche lipsticks, but they have shimmer and are not very creamy. This one is creamy and is such a nice nude color/MLBB color! I definitely would reccomend this as a good drugstore nude.
This is a gorgeous nude/beige/pink that looks great by itself for an understated look with smoky eyes and it also looks fabulous with a gloss on top. Chanel's Jaipur looks stunning over it. The only qualm that I have is that the top keeps falling off in my purse. I would buy this again because of the color though.
UPDATE: Someone told me that this shade is an exact dupe for MAC's Blankety! I own a lot of MAC lipsticks, but don't have Blankety, so I can't say for sure, but I really do love this color and wear it a lot!
LOVE THIS! I usually use MAC lipsticks, but someone recommended this on youtube! And she was right, this is the perfect nude lipstick for me! I am NC42 for reference. The staying power is good, about 3-4 hours. and the color is just beautiful. I like how it also moisturizes the lips and has no drying effect like some of the mac lipsticks.
The problem for me was the taste of the lipstick. I didn't like it at all! But I think it just takes getting use to. One thing I didn't like was the packaging. I know its not a big problem, but I hate how I cant just cover the l/s but I have to make sure that it clicks.
I like the Colour Riche formula, but this color does not come close to flattering me. The reviewer that said this looked like a gray mauve from '97 was spot on. Washes me out big time. If it had more pink or were deeper it would have worked, but as is it literally makes me look sick.
I purchased this online, due to the rave reviews (sight unseen, as I live in Canada and this shade is not available here). I kept my fingers crossed that this would not be similar to shade 862 Nude, and thankfully it isn't. 862 Nude has more of a tawny hue to it.
This is a really nice shade of nude-pink with lilac undertones (at least on my lips). I like to pair this with Revlon's Lilac Pastelle to give a creamy nude-pink glossy lip (like a fully opaque cremesheen). I don't care for the packaging; lid is a bit stiff to open/close. The scent is surprisingly muted, compared to other L'oreal lippies I've tried in the past.
I can't say this is a dupe to MAC's The Faerie Glen, as another reviewer had suggested. The Faerie Glen leans more beige-pink compared to this, but this is still a great color.
