Earlier than moving into the formulation and colours, let’s take a second to marvel on the beautiful packaging design of those lipsticks! The case is manufactured from a matte black and glossy gold plastic and the identify of the lipstick colour is printed in gold as effectively. Typically instances, drugstore lipstick packagings fail to impress however these Unique Nudes are so elegant! 

Doutzen’s Nude (from Doutzen Kroes):
Shade: Very gentle child pink with a delicate micro shimmer
Formulation: It is a sheer lipstick designed for these with very pale pores and skin and lightly-pigmented lips. The colour glides on easily however for somebody with a naturally darker lip colour like mine, Doutzen’s Nude will crease and emphasize any effective traces or dry patches.

J Lo’s Nude (from Jennifer Lopez):
Shade: Heat beige-y pink
Formulation: The pigmentation of this one can also be fairly sheer. I bumped into some issues with the colour settling into the effective traces of my lips however they’re solely seen up-close. The formulation feels easy and moisturizing however I do want it was a bit extra cushion-y.

Julianne’s Nude (from Julianne Moore):
Shade: Heat pink with delicate sheen
Formulation: Virtually an identical to J Lo’s Nude when it comes to formulation, Julianne’s Nude leans extra pink than nude. It is usually barely sheerer and I do want the formulation was richer and extra creamy so it gives extra cushioning to keep away from creasing.

Freida’s Nude (from Freida Pinto):
Shade: Frosty greige nude
Formulation: It is a semi-sheer lipstick filled with micro-shimmers that give the colour a really frosty end. Regardless of being a frost, the formulation feels very easy and creamy.

Eva’s Nude (from Eva Longoria):
Shade: Wealthy dusty apricot nude
Formulation: This one is certainly my favourite out of the six, each when it comes to pigmentation and formulation. The colour is noticeably extra pigmented than the earlier 4 and as outcome it makes the lips look more healthy and plumper. The lipstick feels tremendous wealthy and moisturizing on the lips and the wear and tear is a bit longer in comparison with the earlier 4, which solely wore about three hours.

Liya’s Nude (from Liya Kebede):
Shade: Wealthy mocha nude
Formulation: Very like Eva’s Nude, this one can also be very wealthy when it comes to pigmentation and formulation. The product applies superbly and the shade is ideal for these with a darker pores and skin tone.

Here’s a compilation of the swatches so you possibly can evaluate them aspect by aspect:

I completely adore the idea and the design of the lipsticks however the formulation of the lighter shades fell somewhat beneath my expectation. Doutzen, J Lo, Julianne, and Freida’s Nudes are positively sheerer lipsticks that is not too forgiving of effective traces and dryness. Eva and Liya’s Nudes, then again, have a a lot creamier formulation and people are the 2 that I might suggest probably the most. The wear and tear of those ranges from about three to five hours, relying on the pigmentation and colour.

The L’Oreal Unique Nudes Assortment are in shops as of June 2014.
