L'Oreal Collection Privee Lipstick by Cheryl
Even though I own about 10 nude lipsticks I've always struggled to find the perfect shade for me. Because my skin tone is a bit darker, most nudes are far too pale for me/make me look like I've got concealer lips, so when L'Oreal brought out their Collection Privee range of nudes to suit different skin tones I decided to give them a try. There are 6 different shades each with their own celebrity ambassador; Julianne Moore, Frida Pinto, Doutzen Kroes, Eva Longoria, Cheryl Cole and Liya Kebede.
I decided to go for Cheryl's nude because we have quite similar colouring (ok it was mainly because I love Cheryl). Cheryl's nude is described as 'barely greige' with grey/pink tones. It's quite a brown nude which I really liked as it's slightly darker than my lips. The formula is sheer and smooth and the shimmer particles give it a glossy finish. I also really love the black and gold packaging with Cheryl's signature on it. It looks quite expensive for being a drugstore lipstick.
I think I've definitely found the perfect nude for me and as you can see by the photo it's well loved. I think these lipsticks are a great idea if like me you struggle to find a nude that suits you. The Collection Privee lipsticks cost £8.19 and you can buy them in Boots. What's your favourite nude lipstick?
P.S You might have noticed that I've got a new hairstyle. I fancied a change but didn't want to change my colour so decided to get a fringe, what do you think?
