The UnNude Lip Challenge

Unnude_2.jpg

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! 

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

one of my faves @lyravega! so pretty on you!

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

Beautiful! Adding this color to my buy list! Smiley Happy

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

Here's one I'd sort of forgotten about — but every time I wear it I remember how much I like the color. Shiseido Lacquer Rouge RD 305. And... my glasses, which you guys pretty much never see. Smiley Wink

Day 12:  Marc Jacobs lip Poutliner Longwear Lip Liner – Prim(rose) & NudeStix Lip + Cheek Pencil – Whisper

 

I used the same lip liner as yesterday over my entire lip, then used Whisper on top.  This color looks much more gray on me than in this swatch.  If I don't use the lip liner underneath, I look like I have corps lips.  At least with the lip liner, it warms the color up and I don't look quite dead.  (Although a lot of people were looking at me at the grocery store this morning, so maybe not...)

 

BTW, this is the only lip liner I have that isn't clear.  I think both the lip liner and lip pencil came in a Sephore Give Me Some Lip kit (along with yesterday's lipstick).

 

Not my swatches.

 

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

I love the MJ prim(rose) + Whisper combo! I wish MJ (or any other company) would create Primrose in a lipstick form. I'd stock up for years and never buy another lipstick LOL 

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

BITE fig ! i see it as a MLBB with an added pink punch. very brightening but not too overt, if that makes sense.

 

it's probably open to interpretation if this falls into a 'nude' category. in my head/through my eyes i often find pinks to serve a similar purpose as more browny or peach / traditional nude tones. i actually think this would be a fun discussion to have !

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

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. 

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

@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

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

 @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!

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

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

Re: The UnNude Lip Challenge

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.
