I don’t have a lot of nude lipsticks because I feel like they wash me out, but this Make Up Store Lipstick in Redwood is strangely a great pale pinky nude lipstick for me. At first I didn’t want to wear it a lot because I felt like it was too light but it turns out, I just have to get a bit used to it.
It actually has some mauve-y quality to it, but it’s definitely more pink than mauve or lavender on the lips. I think it’s a great companion for bolder eye looks like a good ol’ smoky eye or something that makes use of brights like this one using Addiction’s Deep Forest:
The texture is pretty great. It’s a “creme” finish and glides on nicely. Comparatively, it feels a lot like the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks, or the MAC Creamsheens, but it doesn’t apply patchily as I find the Creamsheens do. It’s definitely not weightless, but it isn’t heavy either.
Weirdly, this is how it looks like on the Make Up Store Website:
Am I confused? Very.
I would definitely consider getting more shades of this line. Unfortunately, I find their animal testing policy a bit vague. Also, their lipsticks retail for much more than MAC’s, so I don’t know how I feel about that. In any case, this one I got is really nice and if you are currently on the fence re: Make Up Store products, I’ll be the first one to say that they are pretty awesome.
