Good morning!! If you've been reading for a while, you know that I kind of like L'Oreal products. I'd been totally excited for their fall collections to show up in my neck o' the woods, and when one of them did, I was totally in love. The collection is New York Nudes, and it's full of beautiful, rich neutral colors for nails and lips--RIGHT up my alley.
I hadn't used a L'Oreal lipstick in years, for whatever reason, but one of the offerings this season looked highly promising. It's a light brown leaning nude cream with the slightest touch of pink, called Nature's Blush.
Nature's Blush is browner than I'm used to wearing. I've got quite the arsenal of muted pinks and pinky nudes, but I haven't been 100% comfortable with them since I started coloring my hair red last September. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this color looks great with my unnatural red.
I've finally found the perfect lipstick for my hair! WOOEEE!
Nature's Blush has a nice, pigmented payoff, but wearing lipstick alone leaves my lips feeling really dry, even a great, creamy formula like this. The best layering balm I've found are those little round EOS balms. This is a few swipes of Nature's Blush over the balm. It sheers the color out a little and gives it a nice, subtle gloss.
I just love it. I never thought I'd happily give up my pinks, but this color's so easy to wear and lovely. It works so well with my newly beloved NARS Lhasa eyeshadow that I've been fairly living in both for the past few weeks (and wearing makeup on a more regular basis because of it, too, lol).
The L'Oreal New York Nudes collection is available at Fred Meyer, and the lipstick retails for $7.99.
Have an awesome day and thanks for reading! <3
