Calling all nudists! Before you strip off your Gap baby T, please note that I’m talking about nudists, as in nude lips, not, um…actual nudists.
If you love a nude lip look, let Dolce & Gabbana’s new Caramel Ultra Shine Lipgloss ($30), released with the Sicilian Lace Collection for fall, whet your appetite. This creamy, medium-weight warm beige feels slightly sticky on my lips (but not as sticky as a MAC Lipglass) and has a light rose scent (it is unflavored, though).
I get about two and a half hours of color from Caramel when I wear her all by her lonesome. I bet she’d also look divine layered on top of a favorite nude lip liner, too… Can you imagine? — with sooty black smokey eyes?
For $10 less ($20 instead of $30), Caramel would be the P.I.M.P. of nude glosses. If you like the look, she might make a nice splurge. Available at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Speaking of nudes, happy hump day!
