This is a great lipstick for an everyday look. The matte brown color goes great on many different skin tones, plus its creamy and doesn't dry out my lips. Its ultra cheap which is always a good thing. I would suggest going to a drug store because they have more of a variety of these lipsticks. Overall its a great lipstick especially when its topped with a great lipgloss.
This is the perfect lipstick. I'm considerably tanned (NC35) and this is my favorite lipstick to wear everyday... it's a nude, but barely noticable that you're wearing a lip product. It leaves you with a clean polished look. The formula is awesome.. dries matte but is still creamy. I always treat my lips at night so I'm sure if I didn't do that this lipstick would accentuate dryness. The packaging is awful, I don't even know how the lipstick smudges all over the tube, but for the price you can't complain, I'll definitely buy this again, I love wet n wild gems.
This is EXACTLY what I want in a lip product and I'm so excited that it performed up to my expectations! I wanted a nude color that would work for every day and did not have shimmer or too much of a pink tone. This exceeded that. I don't need to put balm underneath, it is moist and not cakey...it doesn't 'drag' on my lips. It also is pigmented and doesn't need a liner. The lasting power is great, and what I hoped for. I noticed it also makes my lips look fuller and feel plumper;maybe this is due to the 'hyaluronic microspheres' the website lists in the ingredients. Again, I love cruelty free companies and this company does not test on animals. Plus the price is affordable. Right now this is my favorite lip product I own. I would recommend to everyone and will buy again.
I have very little natural pigment in my lips. Without some color on them, I look like a corpse. So I like to keep product on them as much as possible. Reapplying every five minutes is a pain, obviously, so I'm always on the hunt for a good long wearing lip product. I've tried about every formulation there is. Some, even high end brands, are just horrible. Some are adequate, some are excellent. I'd put this squarely in the middle.
I like the color very much. It's not nude on me, because I'm so fair. But it is a fairly natural hue, without too much pink, which is a deal killer, as I am a warm complected redhead. It's not peach, but not brown either. I don't know exactly how to describe it, except to say that it's....lipcolored. Neutral, fresh, pretty and believable lip color.
The formulation is pretty good. It's not as drying as some I have found, and if you apply it sparingly, it doesn't crack and flake. But since it is a long wearing color, there is some dryness. Those who enjoy a matte finish could wear this solo, but I prefer to top it with a light gloss. It does wear a very long time, but it did finally wear off and it wore off in that peculiar way that long wearing lip color has; fading from the inside out and leaving a line of demarcation around the lips. There are several brands I use that don't do this and in general, I prefer them. BUT...for the price, it's a really, really good product.
It's definitely better than most DS longwearing lip products and certainly worth the $2.99 I paid for it. I like the color well enough that I can work with the drawbacks. Great little product!
This is an almost exact dupe for Mac velvet Teddy. The difference is negligible. The formula is not as smooth as vt although the formula is similar to Mac satin finish lipstick in that its creamy and semi matte. Good job wnw ...I've been very impressed lately.
I'm speaking on behalf of genetically pigmented lips and skintone ranging from nc35 to nc40. This would probably the be the best neutral lipstick for everyday use. First of all, it's Inexpensive. I bought it locally for around $3 in my country but I believe it's cheaper in the US where it is manufactured. So you can have the pleasure of using it and retouching with it everyday. You can repurchase thise without the guilt.
When speaking about nude color, this is not really nude for those with nc40 skintones and lighter because it's a pigmented brown color and would appear heavy on lighter skintones. If you have darker skin than aforementioned, this would actually be a good nude lipstick starter. Mind you, I have pigmented lips and I have problems of lipstick appearing different once swatched on my lips. I don't have pale lips so I needed something that would give off a more pigmented lip color, a tad more than per se Mac Lustre lipsticks (which really don't show up on my lips). So this lipstick is good considering it's really matte. Color pay-off is excellent but again, we all have different lips and lipsticks appear different on everyone, saying so lipsticks don't appear the same on our lips as it would on the tube itself. I'm just in it for the neutral brown color that mutes out my heavy makeup. Thing is, I'm not so sure about the lasting power because after days of wearing it, the color lasts a good 2 hours on me before it starts to fade. But again, no biggie since you can always rectouch.
I have three problems with this lipstick though. First, the packaging is downright outrageous. Good that you can actually see the shade because of the clear cap, but the stick itself protrudes outside the tube. Either you have to use it over and over to consume the protruding part or cut it. As easy as that. I'm annoyed because I have to be careful when putting it back with the cap, not very practical when you're in a hurry and on the go. Second, considering it's matte, this lipstick is drying and emphasizes the line of my lips for that matter. One solution, use lip balm underneath and may I suggest going with waxy ones such as MAC lip conditioner with spf 15 (in the jar). I've never had problems with matte lipsticks with this lip balm. I say drift away from lip primers and concealers. They don't really help that much. Third and last, I kind of find it turning orange after a while. It's just me though because I have weird lips.
Nevertheless, I am a big fan of this color. It complements my skintone very well and it doesn't make me look like someone who made out with a corpse. I use it over lip balm and don't put gloss over it. I let it stay as is to appear more natural and really flattering. A lipstick that I would be repurchasing over and over again.
OMG I can't believe this isn't getting as much hype as it deserves. This is hands down the best drugstore nude that I have purchased. It is somewhere in between Velvet Teddy and Honeylove by M.A.C., Velvet Teddy is more brown, Honeylove is more pink and a tad lighter. Bare it All is a more brownish nude that is not too dark for fair skin tones and not to light for darker skin tones. I am NC40-42 and this looks sexy on me, more of a true nude on my skin tone, and not a washed out nude like Viva Glam GaGa II which sort of washes me out. Someone mentioned Brigitte Bardot and I have to agree that this is what this lipstick reminds me of, its so sexy! I have no complaints with the packaging, its $3.25, so I wasn't expecting to get YSL packaging. Oh and matte lipsticks are always drying, but this one seemed slightly creamier than most, even M.A.C. or NARS. The color is wonderfully opaque too. <3 <3 I'm buying a back up as soon as I go to Target again.
Nice color, okay packaging, lasting power is like any average lipstick. My only complaint would be that it's a little too drying - so much that when i put it on my lips it doesn't glide on as smoothly as i'd like it do therefore it just makes me think that i'm actually putting on a foundation stick on my lips. I've tried other matte lipsticks and this is the only one i've had this problem with. Using this with lip balm doesn't help much either and i like to think that with any product i shouldn't have to use another one in order for it to work well.
I really adore this color too bad it was too dry for me.
I would not repurchase, but for the price it wouldn't hurt to try for anyone who's interested !
I love this Lipstick! I would of given it five stars but cos the packaging sucks I took off an star.
It's matte its not too drying for me it lasts. Around two hours on me, the longest any lipstick lasted on me EVen HE doesn't last long on me. I have pigmented lips and this shows up pinkish nureyev brown on me not too light not to dark just perfect. I like to top this with Nars Strip tease this my hg lip combo. The bad part the packaging is junk the top gets dirty the lipstick falls out of the tube ugh but for 2$ and a great product I think deal with it.
Bought this on a whim while waiting for the bus. The color appears a bit... too nude-y if i apply to both the top and bottom lips. So, I simply apply this to the bottom lip and then rub my lips together. And Voila!
