Get a Fresh-Faced Look with Nude Lipstick

In my many years of blogging, I don't think I have ever discussed about wearing a nude lipstick. I own several shades but it was either too light or too dark for my skin tone. Most of the time, I ended up looking like a ghost, even I dread how I looked (*imagine a face without lips).

Fast-forward to today, I think I have found the right shade of nude lipstick for my fair skin. It's rosy-beige in color and it's from a Filipino brand called Happy Skin.

Here's the nude lippie I am taking about, it's Happy Skin StyLIZed Shut Up & Kiss Me in Style Icon. You can view the swatches under natural lighting in this entry.

This shade is perfect for people like me who has a neutral undertone. If you can't tell if the veins at the underside of your forearm is green (warm) or blue (cool) then you are neutral. I am somewhere in between so I think I have an even mixture of undertones in my skin.

I didn't put any gloss on top or a lip balm prior to lipstick application, I just swiped the lipstick on my lips and it glided easily without any fuss.

Happy Skin StyLIZed Shut Up & Kiss Me in Style Icon is pigmented and moisturizing. The downside is that it is not long-wearing, the color easily transfers on to things that touches my lips. The lipstick in itself is buttery (a plus!) but because of that it deforms easily when not handled properly.
