Making my rounds at Rite Aid, I spotted a new collection from Maybelline called Colorsensational Porcelains. Since I am a sucker for nude lipsticks, I picked up a couple of the lipsticks from this collection. The two that I chose were Smooth Taupe which is an icy light nude and Nude Nuances which is an icy pink nude. The color Nude Nuances is thought to be a dupe for MAC's Hue lipstick. Looking at comparison swatches, they seem to be very similar!
Looking at the bottom of the lipsticks' color guide in the store, I thought these lipsticks would be a little bit darker than what they are on the lips. Smooth Taupe looks kind of ridiculous on me with my tan skin. I tried it on and showed my boy friend and he told me that it looked like I had just gotten done eating powdered donuts. Not a good look...
Nude Nuances, on me, looks a little bit better. It is still pretty light but it doesn't look super awkwardly light. What I have been doing with these lipsticks, is using them to tone down my brighter pink and coral lipsticks. Like all of the other Maybelline lipsticks, they have a great moisturizing formula and color payoff. I wish two colors were a little darker for my complexion right now, but I know these colors would be great for those of you who are lighter skinned! This collection, I have heard, has been hard to find. I was able to find it at my local Rite Aid but I did not see it at Ulta, Wal Mart, or Walgreens. The price of these lipsticks are around $7.49.
