Now, lately I haven't even really been INTO nudes. I'm loving wacky colors nowadays. But I know there are times when you need to take it easy and tone it down for where ever you're going. So I was in Ricky's and picked the darker of the two nudes I saw. I honestly forget what the name of the other shade was, but thank goodness I got Soft Spoken, because that lighter color would have looked like donut powder on me. Soft Spoken is the perfect nude for my NW45 skin. It really doesn't require much effort to apply - I always use lip liners with my lippies, but I have a feeling I could go without one with this and it'd still look awesome on me.
Like I said, there's dry feeling, or crusties on my lips after a few hours of wear. This formula is super comfortable. I may get more from the line, but it seems like I have many of the other shades in other lipsticks. But this formula is so good I might just start replacing some lipsticks.
