This shade of nude was exactly what I've been looking for! I've been using concealer to get the nude look on my lips and really just wanted a tube of lipstick. The fact that it's matte is even better...and it looks really good on my tan/olive skin. I'm definitely not one to wear lipstick regularly, always chapstick..but this color is subtle and looks great under a bit of gloss and with more dramatic eye make-up. Also, I only use a little bit and rub it in like chapstick for my desired look. No shimmer or sparkles (which I hate on the lips/face). I like it under a tiny bit of clear gloss. It's really smooth and has no harsh scent. Not bad for $5 at Target.
I love the look of matte/creamy lipsticks and nude lips, so I thought this would be an awesome combination. Overall it was ok, but I ended up tossing it for several reasons. The texture felt a little grainy sometimes, and this lipstick was not at all forgiving if my lips were even slightly chapped or dry. Most importantly, this just wasn't a flattering color against my fair, yellow-toned skin.
Honestly this has got to be a Revlon screw up! I bought this because I heard good reviews on youtube from friends and this cant even do its job! I applied lip balm and had exfoliated my lips before hand and applied this and all it does is CAKE!!! Yukkk!!! I looked like i was lacking water after wearing this. The only way you can wear it is if you sheerly put it on and apply a lipgloss on over it but than again you still dont get that perfect nude pout. Rimmel is cheaper and so much better!
Simply doesn't work for me. I have highly pigmented lips and am nc35/40 for reference. It really did make me look "corpsy." It completely washed me out. I tried it several different ways to see if there was a way to make it usable; but nothing. Will not be repurchasing.
Edit: i tried this as a "lip-erase" today after seeing xteener do it on YT; and it worked ok. Guess I will keep it just for this purpose.
I really wanted to like this color. If I put it on super super lightly than it isn't so terrible, but it's just not going to work for me. I might try to give it away but for the life of me I can't figure out anyone who would want this. Maybe I'll save it for Halloween?
soooo this lipstick is extremely DRY. as if my lips werent dry enough...even with multiple applications of lipbalm and lip treatments, this lipstick just accentuates the flakes of skin on my pout. not liking it. but sometimes applying it very sheerly on my lips topped off with a pink lipgloss can work as a nude lip too. but on its own...yeah i dont think so.
i look like a corpse with this. its like putting concealer on my lips. tried topping it off with a gloss...but still looks dead.
When I tell you tinted elmers glue would work better, I totally mean it. WHAT IS UP WITH THIS GARBAGE!?! NEVER AGAIN
seriously, why the heck would revlon even manufacture this? i've just started looking for an HG nude lipstick/gloss- and this is definitely NOT it. i bought it last minute at target, because all the other nude lippies i wanted to try were nowhere to be found (go figure).
i put some balm on my lips before applying this, so they were very smooth and not dry in the least. however, that did not stop this lipstick from caking up all over my mouth. i had sickly looking orange/brown flecks all over my lips. and the color on my actual lips looks pretty if you consider the "dead" look attractive. gross, revlon.
This shade is okay. It is a very apricot-y nude shade without any pink or beige in it. If I apply this too heavily (more than 2 coats), it will look like I applied orangey concealer on my lips. But when applied sheerly and topped with lipgloss, it is quite pretty. I like the packaging (the clear window on top should really be standard among lipsticks, so that people will be deterred from opening them up in the store and making a mess of them), and there is absolutely no offensive scent that I can detect. Since it is a matte formula it will highlight imperfections on its own, so make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized before application. I brush my lips with my toothbrush and use several coats of chapstick, this also helps the color to slide on more sheer and even IMO, and keeps the color from settling into fine lines as much. I am still looking for the perfect drugstore nude, and plan on looking into a couple shades of the Revlon super lustrous collection that look promising, but for now this will do to satisfy my nude fix. I don't like the fact that I need to apply a gloss over this lipstick to make it wearable, but the finished look is nice nonetheless and if you are a gloss fan or just used to wearing nudes with gloss, this probably won't be a problem for you. Overall I like this lipstick but I wish this nude were a little warmer/pinker, and once I use up this tube I don't see myself repurchasing it. I also own Mauve it Over from this same matte collection and I love that shade so much more. It is a very natural, non-mauve, MLBB color on me (NC20-25).
