In a previous post, I told you about my Nudus lipstick samples. I don’t have a tube yet, but I definitely have my eye on at least one! They are not only ethically produced, non-toxic, and with the highest-quality ingredients, but they look terrific and feel amazing as well. A bonus is, the packaging is beautiful, with its sleek, white rectangular tube and the artful sketch of a nude lady:
These are really pretty colors and feel moisturizing on the lips, especially if you apply some lip balm beforehand. You can also apply with your finger and put it on as stains. Since my lipstick samples are in little discs, I tend to do this often. Integrity Botanicals offers generous samples.
Unfortunately, I feel 27 Kisses and Just Like Jade barely show up on my lips. I don’t know if it’s because I’m applying with a lip brush or finger. Nudes tend to make me look washed out, and although 27 Kisses looks nice on my forearm, on my pinky brown lips it’s even lighter than my skin tone. I need a deeper shade to complement my deep medium skin tone.
Just Like Jade looks like a dusty light aubergine, which looks pretty on my forearm, but again, it doesn’t appear as much of a lipstick on my lips. As I said in my previous post, if I’m wearing a 35-dollar lipstick, it better make me look terrific! 🙂
I really like Dirty Diana. It looks so good on me and is strong enough to balance out my dark eyes and hair. Besides owning the full-sized version of Dirty Diana, I’d love to sample Dreamtime, Revenge, and Ruby Rose. Check out the Nudus shade selection:
It’s great Integrity Botanicals offers three free samples with each order. Even if you pay for them, they are very reasonably priced. Nudus samples are just $3 each.
These opinions are my own. I bought these samples from Integrity Botanicals with my own money.
