Quick Experiment: Creating nude lips using concealer & gloss
By retail_therapy · December 30, 2009 · 10 Comments · 102 Views
One reader was asking me if nude lips can be created using a foundation/concealer followed by a lipgloss... and I thought that would make a rather fun and useful blog post. I tried on two conealer shades in this experiment, and I will explain everything along the way!
Step One: This is my natural lip color without any products.
First I used NYX Concealer in a Jar (Porcelene) which is frankly too pale for me as a concealer. As you can see, this color erases my lip color completely, too pale and ghastly for my liking. It also looks drying, especially on the lower lip.
Then, I applied MAC's Underage lipglass over, for some definition and texture.
Still very pale, but I will show you the whole face to put things into perspective.
Then I tried another concealer, which is the peachy shades in the Ben Nye concealer wheel. These are darker in tone. Again, very drying on the lips. I don't think the difference is very obvious in the pictures.
The verdict?? I think if you like really nude lips, you can certainly try this out! Kind of drying on the lips though, and also, I guess you can do this as a last resort, if you want to explore the whole pale/ nude lips thingy, but not sure if you want to pay for a nude lipstick at MAC or something, because we know it is hard to find a nice nude lipstick at drugstore price range - though I highly recommmend NYX round lipsticks for cheap alternatives.
That's all, and happy holidays!
I am thinking my first entry for 2010 will be a product rave....and I guess you have a pretty good idea what that will be. :)
