Innocent is perfect for me as a quick nude lipstick. I love that it’s a blend of lipstick and gloss. So easy to apply–I often touch it up without a mirror. It’s rather sheer but I like that for this one. Some Patentpolishes are awesome and others are ok, but I think it may have a lot to do with individual preferences. Wish they were permanent!
MAC Innocent Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “nude beige.” It’s a light, warm-toned beige with a creamy, lightly glossy finish. This applied very unevenly, but it did have semi-opaque pigmentation. It lasted an hour and a half. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Maybelline Nude Lust (920) (P, $7.49) is slightly warmer. MAC Softly Lit (LE, $20.00) is glossier, more shimmery. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is a touch less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
