Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation is a new item that I recently came across whilst at Sephora.
These new lip colors come in six shades and a clear shade which are made to be worn alone or under a lip gloss. They have a twist-up feature and a precision slanted tip. To find the perfect nude for you, you are supposed to choose a shade which matches your lip shade, not your skin. They have a VERY matte finish, which I shall talk about more soon.
Buff is a nude beige and the lightest shade in the bunch. I bought this one after swatching it on my hand and falling in love. However on my lips it doesn’t look too hot on me. It’s a bit too nude and mannequin looking.
Nude is a beige pink and the second lightest shade. This one suits me much more and I really love it. It doesn’t match my lips though, but still looks good!
Ok so the texture…these are SOOOO matte. These might be the most matte lippies I have ever worn in fact. They don’t really drag when I am applying them, they feel moderately creamy, but if you apply a layer then try to go back over it, that’s when they drag a bit. They don’t feel horrible on my lips but there is no hydration at all. Once they are on they are ON. They do tend to highlight every single flaw in the lips because of the matte texture so keep that in mind.
These are exclusive to Sephora.
Are you into a nude lip or do you prefer more color?
