When was the last time I purchased a lipstick from Maybelline? I really can’t remember. I feel like there is no shade that is ever unique for me to get- until Nude Nuance.
Maybelline released a line of brown nudes recently and I was surprised about how much positive reviews it is getting from the bloggers I look up to. The particular shade landed on Martha’s (The Beauty Junkee) monthly favorites and Ana Cay’s Ride or Die video. I tried to score it at Maybelline counters during the sale period but it is the only shade that is out of stock.
Nude Nuance for me is a dirty brown with hint of pink on it.
I was amazed when I first swiped it. Maybelline definitely improved in all aspects, I must say. The pigmentation is good. Two swipes to get full coverage on my lips. I also noticed that the texture is indeed creamy and matte. It is not drying on the lips and is now less slippery than their old formulation.
For the staying power, it is also better that the former Maybelline lippies that I have tried. Though, the majority of the color fades away during meals. I don’t bother retouching for this one.
So it is worth the hype? I can say yes. Especially this shade because it really flatters my morena skin tone. It is not too dark for a brown shade, yet it gives your face that 90’s effect. Very wearable too. This is my current favorite lipstick when I can’t decide what to use.
Will I buy the other shades? I think NO, mainly because some shades are already a dupe of other lippies I own. I just really find Nude Nuance unique for some reason.
I rarely rave about drugstore lippies, but I am sure this line is a catch.
