The UnNude Lip Challenge

[ Edited ]

If you're on BeautyTalk, you're probably well-aware of the nude lip trend and may even own a handful (or three) of these shades. While I love the trend, I still can't seem to find my "perfect nude" so I am very excited to start talking more broadly about UnNudes! UnNude lip shades offer a spectrum from standard nude shades to more bold, neutral shades. These are the mauvy brown, deep chocolate, rose-goldy-earth toned neutral shades and they come in a variety of finishes (matte, metallic, creamy and shiny). 

 

Here's the challenge: rock an UnNude lip look between Monday, February 6th- Tuesday, February 28th. No requirement on how often to post but I'm going to try for every weekday! 

 

Keep in mind, this challenge overlaps Valentine's Day so I am also challenging you to change it up by wearing a bold neutral instead of the typical red. (Hint: red is not an UnNude!)

 

Check the spoiler for examples of some of UnNude shades. Can't wait to see your take on neutral lips!

EDIT: I have changed the timing. This challenge will run through the end of February so keep the UnNude looks coming!

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme in Fawn Over Me. I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I hated it at first but it grew on me as I wore it.

@kso1225 Gorgeous! The smokey eye look paired with the neutral lip is perfect! 

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

@kso1225 you remind me of the lip models who can rock any color and i'm over here as the consumer thinking "oh come on now .. how is that possible?!" Smiley Very Happy

 @whitepolkydots  I wish!  But thank you! I think I'm getting a better idea of what works on me. Though there's still a lot of trial and error. I tried Bite Thistle the other day and it looked awful on me.  Same with both versions of Mauvember, and those were popular.

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

You look like a model in this picture @kso1225 it's a very pretty nude on you.

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

agreed! i love this on you @kso1225, and you look extra babely here!

Thank you both! @unfungirl @fatimamummy  I'm glad to have some positive feedback on this shade since I was on the fence about it.

Todays lip is Urban Decay Vice lipstick in Big Bang, a metallic purpley-pink shade. Somewhat sheer so it needs a few coats to show up as more than a metallic wash of colour.

 

Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the message on this awesome shirt

I got this shirt from an organization called GEMS (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services) based in New York that provides amazing support, advocacy and services to girls ages 12-24 who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. This place is amazing! The Canadian equivalent would be Covenant House in Toronto. Just want to say that I appreciate these organizations so much because sexual exploitation and trafficking is far more widespread than many realize or want to acknowledge. There can be life afterwards <3 I can speak from experience, both personal and among the youth I work with at the drop-in centre I work at. There will always be scars but it does not have to be the only thing that defines someone, but rather a chapter that makes up a larger, beautiful book with so much more to come.

Today is Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 23 Copper Blush. There are so many great colors now, I'm glad Sephora extended the range.

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

@playingdressup - That's the color that caught my attention online.  Now that I see it, it's definitely going on my Loves list!

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

@Titian06 it's a color I think would look good on most people. That range needed a color like this!

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge
