I really wanted a nude lipstick and had to have this shade when Revlon first came out with the matte collection.For weeks every store in my town was out and I looked everywhere for it.When I did get it I was so disappointed!!!This just makes me look sick.I could have bought a cheap concealer and it would have looked better.
I didn't like this at all.. My lips weren't even that dry... It made my lips have all these little lines that I didn't even knew I had. I can't put it on like a normal lipstick, I have to dab it around lightly, and even then it still fills in all my little cracks in my lips and makes them dry up. Also, most people mention that this makes their lips turn orange. I wanted that more than pinky nudes because I like the peach/coral look more on my skin. However, this turned more light pink on my lips..
I personally really liked this product. I'd never tried revlon, always used MAC lipsticks, but this product is about the same for half the price! WOOO!!! creamy, stays well, good pigment... no problems (just remember to exfoliate your lips before you use this. That's kind of a no duh when it comes to lipsticks though).
As for the color, I know a lot of people say it looks orange, but my skin is very tan/gold/yellow depending on how kind you're feeling that day, and this is a great shade of nude for me. So I guess this is what you would call a very warm nude, so if you're neutral or cool toned stay far far away.
Many people complain about this product because it's too cakey and drying. This is a MATTE lipstick! And matte lipsticks aren't supposed to be worn by itself without a base/chapstick, because it will look blotchy!
Now let's get down to the review:
This lipstick pleasantly surprised me because i thought at first it would be very chalky. But it isn't. It has a thin creamy texture and peachy color that would work better on warm -neutral skintones.
How I use it: I applied a layer of burt's bees chapstick first and dabbed on this lipcolor and blended with my fingers. Then I dabbed on a tiny amount of pink lipgloss. Voila! Perfect nude lips!!
This works for me every time and if you have dry flaky lips, make sure to exfoliate!
I really like the packaging. It's really sturdy and feels like a high end brand.
*I took off a lippie because it does not work well for cooler skin tones
Because I personally (for some odd reason)have pretty pigmented lips....I'm not kidding whenever I put on my nivea hydration lip balm my lips turn red..>.> but anyway ya this nude lipstick is not bad actually obviously for any nude lipstick you shouldn't be using it to slide it to your lips left to right, left to right, etc you should be just lightly dabbing it to your lips. you can either dab it to your bottom lips or both upper and bottom (depending on how pigmented your natural lips are) even though i didn't experiment any cakey lips after apply the nude attitude lipstick but you could try to put on a good hydrating lip balm first wait till your lips absorb the moisture than dab the lipstick to your lips (lightly!) and for lip gloss (cause you should never wear nude lipstick it by itself!) you can choose a more pinkish tone to give it a more healthy, but nudish look. For myself, I put on Annabelle Le Gloss lip shine in superstar
I really tried to make this lipstick work for me but I gave up anyway. My nightmare began when I was looking for a nude lipstick and I heard many YT gurus raving about Revlon Nude Atittude so I decided to get it. When I tried it on my lips... oh surprise... it was supposed to be a matte lipstick with yellow/beige/peachy undertone (at least that's what I expected)..... but it turned out that if you look really close it isn't matte, it has really tiny sparkles and some kind of weird purple/blue-ish undertone . But the WORST thing is that it is very CAKEY so it never looks right. Now i am looking for a better nude lipstick that doesnt't cake.
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.
