My quest for the perfect muted, everyday lipstick continues. On this particular stop we have Hourglass' Nude Lip Stylo in Nude No. 5, a creamy peach with subtle flecks of gold.
It took me a while to narrow it down to No. 5. I swatched and re-swatched all six shades on two different occasions -- the determining factor was No. 5's shimmer.
Nude No. 5 lasts well over four hours on my lips, it even saw me through pancakes and coffee on Sunday morning.
The Femme Nude Lip Stylos are drama free with their sturdy cap and twist-up/down features. Pencil sharpener not required.
While I do enjoy Nude No. 5's subtlety, I think all six shades will really shine on a darker complexion. Perhaps, a few weeks in Hawaii will work like a charm in two weeks' time.
