One of my favorite nude lips is the Lancome Color Design Lipcolor in shade #124, "Haute Nude" (new for Spring, 2015).
I recently saw this on display at Nordstrom (Spring, 2015) and when I swatched it....it was love at first sight! I knew, right then and there that this is the nude I've been searching for. Now, do I really need another "Nudey-Beigey" Lipstick?
This is the perfect shade of nude for my medium-toned lips. It's not one of those "washed-out" nudes; this is more of a "my lips, but better" kinda color!
While it states this is a 'cream' formula, you will notice some very teenie-tiny flecks of shimmer, but it is undetectable on the lips! It gives my lips a luminous glow, that I absolutely love! I pair this with my Chanel "nude" lip pencil or Elizabeth Arden lip pencil in "sugared kiss", which gives the color a whole new dimension -- more of a "rose" neutral lip -- I just love it! Looks great without any lip liner as well!!
This formula is long-wearing! It stayed on my lips for several hours, and did not feel drying at all.
I also love that the Color Design Lipsticks do not have any fragrance. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the scent of the Rouge Absolue lippies!
My only negative/downside is the packaging -- the lipstick tube is just devine; however, it is a bit confusing when you want to open the case because the end where the label is is actually the "top" of the lipstick, and the other end has a "jewel" thingy, if you will, so you can't stand this lipstick upright...well, you can, but it's top-heavy, so it will fall over very easily (see pic below). It's not really a big deal, but I don't understand the design -- maybe Lancome just wanted to make it unique, and indeed they have!
The only other thing I want to mention about the Color Design lipstick, is that they have several different formulas; cream, shimmer, metallic, and sheer......so, please be careful and make sure you know which formula you are getting. I happen to really love the cream formula.
Okay, onto the pics!
