Lipstick Queen Nothing But The Nudes
I think I posted about a single colour of the Lipstick Queen Nothing But The Nudes lipsticks back in the summer, but they brand has subsequently issued more colours so thought I’d re-visit this expanded collection, not least because it’s a welcome change up from the traditional ‘winter reds’ and ‘berry colours’. There are ten shades in the collection so there is a nude for everyone and any skin tone. It’s a reminder of what a long way the beauty industry has come in terms of inclusiveness – it’s not so long ago that the term ‘nude’ in the case of lip colour was heavily weighted to a randomly beige shade that didn’t take into account at all that nude is a completely different colour depending upon your tone. Nude is never one colour.
These particular lipsticks are lovely and creamy – there’s no drag when you apply and they feel smooth and rich on the lip. They also have a shine finish – yay!! No drying mattes here.
In the swatch above, from bottom to top, it’s: Sweet As Honey, Hanky Panky Pink and Blooming Blush.
In this swatch, from bottom to top: Cheeky Chestnut, Truth or Bare, Naked Truth and Tempting Taupe (a SpaceNK exclusive shade).
They’re £22 each (I’ve seen so many £30 lipsticks that seems reasonable at this point!) HERE.
