The Spring Season: Cooler Pinks Lipstick Wrap-up

For our next visual recap of the Spring Season, we’re showcasing all of the cooler-toned pink lipsticks.

  • #1 (Benefit Jing-a-ling) is like a lighter, cooler version of #8 (Urban Decay Rush).
  • #6 (MAC Hue) and #7 (Maybelline Born With It) seem awfully similar, with Hue not quite as pink.  #5 (MAC Angel) is pinker than both the Born With It and Hue.

The Spring Season: Warmer Nudes Lipstick Wrap-up

I’m partial to warmer nudes myself, and I discovered several new favorites through the Spring Season–I hope you did, too!  One reason I love doing end-of-series roundups is because it gives me an opportunity to see if there are good dupes for certain shades.

  • For instance, #7 (Guerlain Guerlinade) is a new favorite nude for me, and the closest dupe here is #12 (MAC Freckletone), but it’s not quite there.
  • On the other hand, #9 (Korres #34 Nude) and #14 (MAC Touch) have similar coloring but different textures.
  • #8 (Julie Hewett Simone) is a pinker, more pigmented version of #2 (Chanel Mythic).  #10 (Lancome Rich Cashmere) seems similar to #11 (MAC Cherish).
  • #3 (Cle de Peau #103) seems like a cross between #9 (Korres #34 Nude) and #12 (MAC Freckletone).

The Spring Season: Cooler Nude Lipstick Wrap-up

We’re winding down the Spring Season, and the best way to do that is by giving you a visual summary of all of the colors we’ve taken a look at in the past three months!  This post features cooler nude lipstick shades.

  • MAC may have a lot of nudes, but it definitely looks like you don’t need to own every single one to have your nude lips covered.  #5 (MAC Creme d’Nude), #6 (MAC Fleshpot), and #7 (MAC Myth) are all quite similar–Creme d’Nude is sheerer and glossier, while Fleshpot and Myth have similar textures, Fleshpot is pinker, Myth is peachier.
  • #1 (Benefit Lady’s Choice) and #4 (Korres #13 Natural Pink) seem to be similar, except Lady’s Choice has a glossier finish; #8 (MAC Velvet Teddy) is also similar to these two, but seems a little darker and cooler.
