I've been on a hunt for a perfect nude lipstick for months but whatever I got was either too peach or too pink or too too brown or completely washed me out! Do I sound picky? Well, what can I say, I want a perfect nude lipstick! When somebody told me to check out Coffee Craze I got it the very next day but did it impress me? Is it the perfect nude lipstick I've been looking for? Well read on to find out *wink*
What Maybelline Says?
Now from the beginning, Maybelline is one of my favorite brand from the drugstore/high streets so I knew I'd love the formula. Upon swatching Coffee Craze I really did love the formula. It was creamy with a satin finish and very comfortable on the lips, did not wash me out at all and so I bought it immediately.
Coffee Craze is a brown nude with neutral undertones. The packaging is that of a typical Maybelline Lipstick - pretty and sturdy and is travel friendly. The lipstick itself is in a bullet form and is cut in such a way that you can apply it directly to your lips for a very neat application. It's a satin finish that is moisturizing and hyderating to the lips, not sticky at all. I absolutely love Maybelline lipsticks' formula!
It compliments my NC 25 skin tone very well. It's not too peachy or too pink or too too brown, It has the right amount of brown in it. If only it had warm undertones, it would have been that perfect Nude Lipstick for me, I believe, since my skin tone has yellow undertones. BUT I'm not complaining because I love this lipstick!
I pair it with all my dramatic and smokey eye looks, also I use it on its own as in - no foundation - moisturizer - mascara or a little blush- Coffee Craze and I'm ready! Yes, it looks beautiful on me without any foundation or any other makeup. I'm really happy I got it!
Natural Lips Coffe Craze Applied.
I'll rate this a 4.5 out of a 5, .5 because I wish it had more warm undertones. (Am I too picky or what?!)
What is your favorite Nude Lipstick and would it suit me? Let me know! (:
Please please suggest me a good Nude Lipstick as I want more and still looking for a perfect one that is more on a brown side and has warm undertone to suit my NC 25 skin tone. Your suggestions are always valuable for me.
Until next time, Good Luck and Ciao!
