i know I’m a little late to the nude party. But better late than never right? I’ve walked past the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Nudes lipsticks a million times without giving them much thought. Until one day, I thought, “What the heck,” and randomly picked up 2 of the darkest shades. I could always use more nude lippies!
The collection features 4 other celebrity endorsed shades in the most luxurious packaging you’ll probably ever see from a drugstore brand. The tubes have a rubbery matte texture (very NARS-ish) and pretty gold features. To be completely honest, the packaging is what finally drew me in. L’Oreal really did a bang up job!
The darkest of the bunch, Eva’s Nude, was the first to catch my eye. It looked like it may be the most WOC friendly selection with its warm brown appearance. It turned out to be much pinker than I anticipated but I’m kinda digging the color so far. It reminds me a bit of MAC Bad Girl RiRi lipstick.
I also picked up JLo’s Nude which is a bit lighter but it still looks wearable. It’s a warm pinky beige that didn’t appear to be chalky. We’ll shall see soon! Both shades felt very smooth and creamy during swatching so I’m hoping they perform as well as they look!
