I've been looking for a lip product that I could wear everyday to school since I look really pale and dull with my bare lips. Although looking for something that could bring life to my lips, I don't want to wear bright ones because it doesn't look natural. But with Maybelline So Nude Lipstick, I was able to find a solution to my dilemma.
Maybelline So Nude is part of their Color Sensational line of lipstick. It comes in a very simple packaging with a clear and silver tub enough to hold the lipstick. I've been using Maybelline products for quite some time now especially their lip products and I've kept my loyalty throughout the years.
As you can see, it is a pink nude which looks youthful and trendy which is perfect for students like me for everyday use. Not too dark and not too bright, At first, I was actually looking for a nude lipstick with brown undertone so I tried their NU35 which is lighter than this, but when I tried it, I didn't like it because it still makes my lips look dull so I switched to this one and instantly loved it.
I'm not sure if the colors at the bottom of the tub represents the exact color of the actual lipstick but I think it is. One thing that's bothering me here is how Maybelline gives names to its products such as this one, NU37. It doesnt sound appealing at all. Maybe they are trying to integrate more of professionalism but I think I would have loved to buy more if they made some playful names out of the colors. Nevertheless, it is still not a reason not to buy this one.
Here is a swatch on my hand. It looks light on my skin though but just enough to freshen up my look.
This is how it looks like on my lips. It is very creamy and glides easily on my lips. Although I'm looking for a matte lipstick, I think this is better to use everyday since it doesn't dry out my lips which is the major downside of matte lipsticks. One thing that might bother you is the texture as it stays on the lips because it remains sticky on the lips. But it's not actually a big deal for me because it's the main reason why my lips remains moisturized. It can also last long for like 5 hours with no retouches and even after eating.
You can see the whole look here and notice how the the lipstick looks barely there and yet giving life to my lips. I really love this product considering that it only costs P299 which is very cheap for such a high quality product.
So that would be all for this post! Leave your comments about this product and if you also have any other products to suggest, just comment it down. Thank you and God bless!
