Lip Service II: The Nude Files




Nudity is relative. As I said in my post from yesterday, I can't use any of those beige colors that make one's lips look pale. My skin is just too dark for it and I look like a freak. Or a dead freak, instead of fresh and sophisticated.

When I want the clean, non-painted look for my lips I reach for muted pink browns. My favorites in this category are those from Skin by Alison Raffaele. They are soft, creamy and moist, have enough pigment to show on my lips and the colors are very nice. As I've mentioned, I also blend them with other lip color to get interesting hues without compromising lip comfort.


The colors that work for me as nudes (again, remember that my lips and skin are darker than average) are:
Lipstick: Breath, Sing
Soft Gloss: Elegant, Polished (they look dark in the tube, but are sheer, soft and match my natural color).

  1. You might also try Clinique's Tenderheart. It's a beige for the non-nordic among us.
    Bein' as I'm a Mexican and Sicilian kitten I KNOW these things.

    God, I'm glad someone is blogging who isn't gonna give me product references that are just GREAT...for Nicole Kidman! Wooo-Hoo!
