Truth be told, I'm not really a nude lipstick kind of girl; give me my reds and pinks and you'll make me happy. And I normally pair smokey eyes with clear gloss.
But not using nudes is one thing.
Not owning any is another.
So yeah, I do have a couple of nude lipsticks. One of them is Catrice's The Nuder The Better. I think this cost me Euro 4.50 or thereabouts.
It comes in a standard black lipstick tube, the cover snaps shut and it feels weight-y too (it feels more expensive than it actually is) - I really like the classic design on these.
As the name implies, this lipstick is a classic nude lipstick (but with a slight pink undertone). Although in the tube it looks matte, this does have a slight sheen to it.
It glides effortlessly on the lips, and pigmentation is quite good too - although I do end up swiping it 2 or 3 times to get the colour I want.
It has normal staying power - between 3 - 4 hours that is.
