Nude Hues

As you guys already know, I’m a lip-gloss fanatic. So when I had the opportunity to try a couple new shades from Kissable Couture’s new summer line, I was excited! The line consists of three barely-there nude shades that are great for those who aren’t quite ready to jump on the brighter shades trend. These more subdued hues are perfect for mixing (which I love to do) to create your ideal lip color.


Halle Berry is a fan of the hint of tint look.


Kissable Couture in Honesty available at www.kissablecouture.com for $22


Philosophy Big Mouth Lip Sheer in Nude available at www.beauty.com for $22


Pop Beauty Mini Ribbon Gloss in Naked available at www.beauty.com for $15


Nectar Nude Super Shiny Lip Gloss available at www.walgreens.com for $7.70


Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Gloss in Almost Bare, Buff, Naked and Nude available www.neimanmarcus.com for $19


Estee Lauder Pure Gloss in Quartz available at www.bloomingdales.com for $18


Scott Barnes Lip Slick in Suggestive available at www.beauty.com for $22


Iman Lip Gloss in Impetuous available at www.ulta.com for $9.99


L'Oreal Colour Rich Gloss in Soft Nude available at www.drugstores.com for $8.05

Do you like the muted lip look or do you prefer to use neutral shades for mixing to create your ideal color?

I love the bright shades of gloss, unfortunately, the don't love me. So I pretty much stick to the nudes. I have the the Bobbi Brown one in buff.

That Kissable Couture shade is gorgeous!

BGG, what's your favorite nude gloss?

I've always preferred the matte look until recently. My cousin had me try MAC Chromeglass and I love it. It has just a tint of color and when I mix it with my MAC Spice It Up lipstick, it looks fabulous. I really like the "Nude Hues"! For a natural sexy look, you can't beat it.

That Iman know it's pretty. Ahhh, lip glosses. No matter how much I love my lipsticks, nothing will ever beat my collection of lip glosses. And yessss, I need to have that Kissable Couture in my life....like now!

I haven't found a nude that works for me (I haven't really looked too hard though). I'm still a fan of the brights and soft pastels. :)

i love nude lip glosses. i have yet to find a real color i like on me. sometimes, i just blend the nude shade with my chestnut lip liner for a little added color.

Thanks

I like the natural/nude/brown lip glosses too BGG. I will definetly look for Keyshia Whitaker's Kissable Couture and Iman's Lip Gloss when I get the chance.

i actually like any shade of gloss. sometimes i feel like being nude, but i do love to punch it up with color too. mixing is the best...i love to do it with lip gloss and eyeshadow.

I love Iman lip gloss I've been using it for about 2 years or so.

Afrodite said...

I have more nude lip glosses than I can count. I just can't get enough.

Lip gloss is my weakness. This is definitely one of my favorite posts.

I. LOVE. LIPGLOSS!! Its almost like I can never have too many! Every week I try to wear a different one. This week I've been wearing my Loreal Volume XXL lip plumping gloss in Nude.

You are always on time! Just this morning, I almost had a car accident trying to get one more swipe of my beloved MAC 4N out of the tube!

I'm not a big fan of the nudes - they usually look chalky to me, but I like neutrals.

This is about lipstick? Damn! I saw the word nude and the pic of Halle and I got distracted! LOL

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@PBW - Right now, my favorite is the one I posted by Kissable Couture. My other favorite is the L'Oreal one. I have so many that I mix together it's hard to choose just one! LOL

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@12 Kyle - You're hilarious!!

Kwana said...

mimieyes said...

Great picks. Bobbi Brown does it for me.
But I'm looking forward to try Iman impetuous.

I love nude tones. Can't wait to try the philosophy gloss!

kay* said...

scott barnes lip slicks are THE BEST - i have the 'chocolate' shade and it is awesome. perfect nude shade. it doesn't have a red or gray or pink undertone...just brown - it's great! they don't carry the line in canada any more so i'll have to pick up another one the next time i'm in NY...until then i use it sparingly :o)
