My Perfect Nude
I'm one for the dark, bold lips. However, on more of a daily basis--or when I'm sporting a dark smokey eye--I tend to go for the nude option. For a while now I've had my eyes out for that perfect nude. One that doesn't give me the dreaded concealer lips but isn't too pink or too peach. I happen to be an exceptionally picky person but when I find something I like, I know I like it. And I think I've found my perfect nude shade housed in the navy and gold packaging of Estee Lauder's Pure Color Envy Lipstick.
The shade I'm referring to is number 120, Desirable. It is a super creamy formula that glides onto the lips effortlessly, covering them in a beautiful opaque beigey-pink color. For a creamy formula, it has surprising lasting power. It won't last the whole day to be sure, but if you aren't eating, it will stay put for a few hours without slipping and sliding away into nothing. If you are eating however, you will need to do a few touch ups.
To keep things short and sweet, I'm obsessed with this lipstick. Everything from the color to the formula to the magnetic packaging get two thumbs up from me.
Do you like the look of this shade? What's your perfect nude?
