Nude lipstick is as strong a statement as red lips. I love both. But honestly i am not into nude lips as much i was last year, Nude lips was one of the biggest makeup trends for Spring 2010. If your looking for a good, cheap, nude lipstick. Look no further. For a change i am posting about something which actually available in Pakistan.HOOORAY !!!
|edited the picture to show the original shade|
I bought Etude aqua rouge BE810, I got it from Alfatah for rs approx 250-350( cant remeber exact price) . There was a time when etude products were such a rage in Pakistan . I am sure they still are but i dont see much of their products these days maybe Rimmel , maybelline ,L'oreal Paris has taken over ,Thanks to Media.
I personally love etude aqua rouge lipsticks , they are affordable and they have such huge varierty of shades, reds,pinks, browns, beiges. And they mention the shade range by putting BR,BE,RD,etc before the shade number.
I would say that is pigmented pinky beige nude shade.Its a pale pinkish nude lipstick .If you dont want a nude lipstick like myth , which is , fleshy beige shade then this is a perfect shade.
I usually pair it with a bit of smoky eyes, if i am not wearing any eyeshadows, i smoke out my kajal on the lower lashline and i am good to go. This is a great color to pair with more pigmented, brighter pink lipglosses if you want it give it a glossy finish. I usually apply my Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Mica which has pale pink base with purple and pink sparkles
Below swatches are two swipes on hands/lips without any gloss or base
