(I’m wearing MAC Mehr in this photo, a creamy matte, nude/rose hybrid)
Though you’ll often see me in reds and hot pinks, I probably wear rose lip colors more than anything. Often dismissed as an “old lady color” (I can’t begin to tell you how many people have said that), rose can be a beautiful substitute for a true nude, when you need a little more color. Below are some of my current favorites:
1) Bobbi Brown Lip Color in “Rose” – a medium rose with a soft, matte finish. See it in action here (blotted) and here (full effect)
2) Julie Hewett Cheekie Cheek and Lip Shine in “Bette” – a bronzed rose that can double as a cheek color. I prefer this in pot form but this color seems to be reduced to pan size. See it in action here.
4) Dior Addict Lipstick in “Dior Kiss” – a dark rosy pink with a sheer, glossy finish.
5) Butter London Lippy Tinted Balm in “Abbey Rose” – though described as a tinted balm, this rose lipstick has medium coverage, with a creamy, ultra hydrating finish.
