Without question, we all need to have fool-proof nude lipsticks that we can wear on auto-pilot mode in the morning or evening. Trust me, I understand the frustration in trying to find the perfect one where the color just blends in, in a your-lips-but-better kind of way. I've actually spent a lot of time digging around the internet and I'm excited to have found a cool product that has just the right amount of nude tone for my lips.
I've found my new lipstick love! It's from Dose of Colors and is called Truffle. I have so many things to say about this lipstick, but the bottom line is that even though it's a niche brand, the quality is great. It's a matte liquid lipstick that applies creamy and glossy, but sets into a matte finish after about 5-7 minutes after the application.
I have a love-hate relationship with matte lipstick because of how severely dry my lips can be. This lipstick is an exception though. Once it sets, it stays in place and doesn't dry up my lips too badly compared to the typical matte lipstick.
You could definitely call this my signature look. To jazz it up, I like to complement the lipstick with a cooler, dark olive eyeshadow like the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense#24 that I'm wearing above (though unfortunately it's been discontinued). The closest alternative would be Urban Decay Darkhorse from the Naked Palette 1.
