I aced a final exam on Friday, so to reward myself, I wandered over to the Mac counter. After telling my favorite MUA about my problem, he introduced me to my new love... Nude Rose. They had just one left from DSquared, (which at the time it came out, I never noticed because I wasn't into the nude-y pink) and I knew from the moment I saw it that it would be perfect. And it is.
(You'll have to excuse my hair. It was a rainy, lazy Sunday!)
For this lip combo, I blanked out my lips with MAC Lip Erase Balm. (Which I did buy from DSquared to get the true color of my beloved corals and berries. You can use concealer, also.) Next, I lined and filled in my lips with In Synch, applied Nude Rose with a lip brush, and topped it off with Fashion Scoop. The results- a flattering, very light pink lip.
I know that this lipstick may not be available to everyone, but I do recommend In Synch and Fashion Scoop if you are into light pinks. And for those of you who are like me, and have trouble wearing cool toned light pinks, know that there is hope!
Does anyone else have this problem, or have any recommendations for another color? I have a feeling my Nude Rose won't last very long, and I'm beginning to swoon over these very nude-ish light pinks....
Update: I found a very similar dupe for Nude Rose... it's Born With It by Maybelline!
