In The Buff

Rouge Dior Nude Lipblush Chanterelle

Nude lipstick can be deceptively difficult.  Most people's mouths (perhaps happily) are not actually "nude" colored, which means most come off as a weird beige. And if you do happen to find a shade that nearly matches your skin tone, it can still, all-too-easily go from looking '60s mod to looking like maybe-misapplied foundation. Which is why we were happy to find the new creamy Rouge Dior Nude Lip Blush in Charnelle, a warm-enough rosy-pink shade, which goes on sheer rather than chalky. It delivers a subtle glow, and you can rest assured that your lips won't blend into your face. So go ahead, try going nude.

    Ah, j'adore Dior. Looks like I'll be picking this up my next Sephora run!

    nude lipsticks are harsh on just about everyone. I've been suckered numerous times. Folk's lips actually range from light rosy peach to the darkest warm brown....I dont see the purpose of buying expensive nude lipsticks...better to make that mistake cheaply like with Revlon nude pink shades like twinkle pink or something in that area....but I guess I am not a huge lipstick lover.

      I am thinking of Rouge Coco Mademoiselle, which only looked good on Vanessa Paradis in the adverts. My tube has been sitting practically unused in a drawer since a friend took my picture with her smartphone: I looked positively cadaverous

    I think MAC Hug Me is a perfect nude too.

    I'm still looking for the perfect nude color for my lips, they're so pigmented, they just look sick when I put a very light shade :(

      I too have deeply pigmented lips... have you ever tried MAC's Sheen Supreme Lipstick? I use "Gotta Dash" (peachy nude in tube but looks more pink nude on my lips). It's lightweight with a slightly glossy texture but packs quite a bit of pigment with staying action... all without using a lip pencil!

        MAC's Sheen Supreme Lipstick is great! I have Bare Again (the site describes it as a pinky neutral beige) and it's perfect for a nude lip, without washing you out. Obviously which color you pick depends on your skin tone, but since it's a little sheer, some of your natural lip color comes through.

    I think a little rose in a nube really helps it not look out of place. Personally, I adore MAC's satin lipstick in 'Brave'.

  • Shell

    try Clinique's new Chubby stick in Hazelnut.
    It's sheer like gloss without the stickiness and has mango and shea butters, for a "good for you" feature.
    Best thing, your hair doesn't get stuck in it.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I'm pretty fair and have always struggled with finding a nude lipstick that doesn't wash me out or look corpse-like. A perilous beauty quest!


  • Andrea

    the colour looks lovely :)

    The Dior Lipsticks are by far the best in my opinion. Blush shades are really good for enhancing your natural lip but without risking looking like a clown ;) Will definitely have to sample this shade!

  • Anoushka

    Beautiful shade!

  • PopCosmo

    Dior does it again!

  • Nina R.

    Emily, could you please direct us to a way to obtain this product? It doesn't seem to be available for purchase anymore and is sold out at Sephora. Thank you!

  • Beauty Idealist
