Do you like nude?
I didn't own anything nude-ish (how shocking?!) so it was about time to change that!! The other day I was standing in front of the huge girly Essence display checking out their new products. That's when I spotted these two items and decided to pick them up just to see if nude actually suits me or not.
First item is a nail polish from the Essence colour&go range and this is acutally one of the new shades that got released this month. #70 called "nude it!".
It looks very nice in the bottle and I quickly swatched it once on my nails but since I was too lazy to paint all of my nails I just did my index finger to see how it looks in real life. However, I realized that I forgot to take a snapshot after I removed it..... lol ヾ(≧∇≦*)〃So there will be no swatch. Epic fail!!
The second product is - believe it or not - a lip stick. I rarely use lip stick and if I did I guess I'd have invested a little more $ to get an item with higher quality. However, as it was merely 1,95 EUR, why not? It doesn't hurt to give it a try.
The shade is #52 called "in the nude" and I guess I don't need to say more, do I? It's all about nude~~ Nude is all I need~~（O￣▽￣O）
The color looks very nice but at the same time it is very sheer and doesn't show much, as seen in the photos below. It rather reminds me of a tinted lip balm in terms of pigmentation.
Don't know if it's visible but the case is already scratched and broken. It's super cheaply made. To be fair it was indeed very cheap so why do I complain in the first place? lol (///ω///)
Verdict: Moderate pigmentation. Crappy packaging. Very moisturizing and creamy. Inexpensive. Smell is okay for my taste.
However, I wouldn't repurchase this just because I mostly would prefer natural cosmetics/organic brands.
