Recent Drugstore Purchases – feeling the nude vibe

*All items purchased with my own money.

Picked up a few things at Ulta recently. Even though my preference is for a bold red lip a la Sade, I’ve been on a major nude vibe for the last few months. 
Maybelline ColorShow The Nudes, Real Techniques Setting Brush, NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown/Brown

 Real Techniques Setting Brush – for setting my concealer.  I might also use it to try contouring.  I’ve never really tried contouring.  I’m afraid it will make me look like a clown.  Any tips would be appreciated.

Real Techniques Setting Brush, Maybelline Coloursensationals Lipstick in Touchable Taupe.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Dark Brown/Brown- Have this is the dark grey/black combo, but I have to use it with a really light hand.  Otherwise I end up looking like a Muppet.  I think that dark brown colour may be a better match.

Maybelline ColorShow The Nudes – I’m totally in love with this nail colour,  I buy polishes all the time but hardly ever use them as I am just bad with nail polish.  I’m that girl running around with chipped nails.  but this I can live with.  Plus I think it looks professional.
And then there’s this – Maybelline Coloursensationals Lipstick in Touchable Taupe.  Just another nude lip.  Looks harmless enough right? Wrong!  Holy crap this looks so bad on me.  It totally disappears into my face and i look lipless, as if I’ve covered my lips in foundation.  It’s totally creepy and unbecoming.  Made me think of this this blog post.
I’m sure it will look lovely in those with lighter skin tones, but it washed out my lovely chocolate complexion.

Here it is with a bit of lipgloss to try liven it up – no bueno. Pasty and looks like play-putty.
Guerlain Rouge G #9 (L) vs Maybelline Touchable Taupe (R)
Here is a swatch compared to one of my favourite nudes by Guerlain.  The Guerlain lippie has slight pinky tone to it, instead of the brown/taupe that is the Maybelline.  The Maybelline almost disappears into my hand.  Not cute.  This lippie gives me the deadfish look…honestly, i look as if I have no lips and dead.  Unfortunately, this one will go back.
Well that’s it for today.  If you have seen something out there that you want me to review, let me know.  I’m a sucker for trying out new items.  Stay blessed and thanks for stopping.

  1. Have I told you lately that I love that you’re wearing nailpolish? My lower lip is lighter than my bottom lip so I’ve come to realize that one product isn’t going to give me a nude lip.

    1. Yeah, I’m still working on the wearing nail polish part. As for the lips, one product could make them look more uniform. I’m a new, and fussy, convert to the nude lip, but I do think it’s worth trying.
