I love this lipcolor. I have extremely dry lips year-round (unbearable in winter) and it's hard to find a lipcolor that doesn't make my lips more dry and more unappealling looking. This product is so slick and moisturizing, and yet has a good color payoff. I used the word "slick" and not creamy, because that's really what it is: it's more of an oil-like texture than a creme one (and I love it). This color is also amazing, and I have SUCH difficulty finding nude lipcolors that work for me. This color is a pinky-nude which looks great with my fair-to-medium skintone that has a lot of redness to it (yet is cool toned). Most nude lipcolors look too brown on me or too pasty. This one is perfect. This product also has a great, light fragrance, kind of like buttercream frosting. If you're not into fragrance, not to worry, it's not really noticeable after application. I would give this product 5 lippies except for it's staying power, which is minimal. You do have to frequently reapply, which I guess you would expect from this kind of formula. It does not proport itself to be long-wearing, in its defense.
I love this product and hope they don't discontinue it because this is definitely going to be my go-to for a nude lip.

my favorite product in day time for my lips!
Gives a beautiful natural color and a little bit of a glow and feels soft on the lips.

Didnt give it 5 stars cause it comes off very quickly

Nourishing Nude completes any natural, neutral, or bronzed look. It is very moisturizing and easy to wear on the lips, and gives off the right amount of colour payoff- enough so that it is worth it to wear this instead of a lip balm. I find many lip products in this genre pointless for that reason. As I am not a frequent lipstick wearer, I was obsessed with this last summer and the SPF 15 is a bonus. I also have Rose Elixir which is nice as well.

For me, this is the perfect nude color. It's just slightly darker than my natural lips, not too light as to wash me out or too dark defeating the purpose of a nude lip. The formula is rich and creamy. It feels great going on. It wears off quickly but I expected that since it is a balm and not a lipstick. I got this on sale at Walgreens for $6.99 but I think the regular retail price is a little steep for what it is. Even so, I will definitely repurchase.

This one is a no-go for me. It's a sheer pinky-nude, but on me the nude part has that sort of "milky" look that doesn't flatter me. It doesn't have the shimmery quality that Caramel Comfort had on me, however, which I appreciate.

Don't notice much of a scent, but it tastes like I just slathered sunscreen on my lips...bleh. And I definitely don't find that to be the case with all lippies containing SPF. So nope, won't repurchase or even use it up, sadly.

was looking for a MLBB color and this came close. i love the sheer formula but it was just too brown on my pigmented lips. very moisturizing and easy to wear. if they come out with more colors i would definitely check them out. i have the caring coral one and i love it. returned this shade.

I picked this up on a whim this summer and have been wearing it regularly since. Nourishing Nude is a light pinky-nude color. The formula is fantastic, extremely light on the lips, definitely closer in texture to a lip balm rather than a lipstick. It is perfect for a neutral/barely there MU look. It wears pretty well and I love its has SPF 15. There is a slight vanilla fragrance but it fades away quickly. I plan on picking up some more colors as this is my new favorite!
