Many of of us beauty lovers (including me!) almost ALWAYS click on a online link with anything resembling "The 10 Best of Nude Lipstick Colors/Top Nudes Lipstick Shades, etc" on online magazines, Pinterest and of course even this very blog.
Well. there's a new "Nude" line of lipsticks from Maybelline Color Sensation Lipcolor Buffs(OK, not exactly nude, but "Buff" is the same idea, right?) that I've crazy about since recently discovering them. Not only are they a great price (under $6), but its one of the nicest group of nude shades I've seen at either the mass or prestige level. The line was created with what Maybelline says are "True nude lip color pigments for honest flesh tone color". And I'd have to say they are spot on.

The 10 shade line really takes into account all women's skin tones/lip color - and undertones as well, when creating a flattering, personalized "nude" lip.
There 4 shades in particular, which will work for olive, medium-brown to dark brown skin tones, which include: Maple Kiss, Touch Taupe (shown, left, is my second favorite when I want a slightly pinker, more neutral mouth), Expresso Expression, and the one I fell in love with, Maybelline Color Sensation Lipcolor Buffs, Untainted Spice, (kind of a strange name, but I love the color!).
Untainted Spice (shown at the top) was the prefect shade to give me the "your lips but better" look. It's a cool brown with a touch of red. While at first glance it looked a lot like other shades I already had, I found it was was quite unique once I applied it. That's because the coolness in the brown, plus the warm red undertone made this look so natural as my own lips do with my skin. I also loved the quality of this lipstick. The texture was creamy, smooth and lightweight, and it kept my lips very hydrated during the day without feeling greasy or heavy.
This line, and hopefully this SHADE will stay in their lipstick color collection for many years to come. The finish is full creamy coverage with natural shine, and it has no flavor and a minimal, slightly sweet fragrance which dissipated quickly.
If you LOVE nude lip colors, but don't want to spend an arm and a leg on getting the perfect match, don't hesitate - pick up a few of these.- RLB
